Week one of football that is! My Bengals pulled off a 1-point win against the Jets Sunday afternoon to start the NFL season off. There were actually a bunch of really close games in week one- talk about nail-biters! Did your team(s) win this week? Not only did the Bengals win but one of my two fantasy teams won so I'll take it. The Bengals play the Steelers this Sunday and I am already sick to my stomach thinking about this game. They are our biggest rival and it's an away game so it'll be tough. So nervous but SO excited!
I'm currently off in football lalaland (and probably will be for the next few months!) so I figured I'd share some of my favorite football items at this time of year. If you're a football fan at all, I think there is a little something here for everyone :)
I was gifted a Bengals Alex and Ani bracelet last year for Christmas and I LOVE it. I'm all about jerseys and comfy pants/leggings for football season, but I also love a nice piece of jewelry to jazz things up on gamedays. Although, let's be serious- I wear this bracelet on non-gamedays as well.
Speaking of comfy, I have been eyeing the new Bengals leggings by Nike and wish I would have bought some before I left my job and lost my discount. (Dangit) On a non-football related comment though, can someone tell me about the Lularoe leggings/clothes deal... like, I kinda get it, but I kinda don't. Is their stuff THAT amazing? Why does everyone sell it on Facebook? What is all the hype about??
We didn't host a get together for the first game, but I know we will be hosting plenty as the season goes on. However, I like to have as many football serving dishes/items as possible. We have a football cutting board, a football candy dish (from Party City!), and Jared owns these football grill tools... although we are currently without a grill, ha! Also, if I didn't already own two crockpots (the obsession is real) I would be purchasing this one as well.
For Saturdays/college games I rep my Ohio State gear when I can, but I kinda' like just having some generic football items to wear too. Lots of boutique type of shops have been coming up with really cute, comfy football-related clothing and I WANT THEM ALL! Sugar Love Boutique has some really cute ones right now and if the black sweatshirt comes back in stock I'm buying it ASAP!
What are items you "must" have for football season?
Hope everyone has a great, football-filled weekend!!
