Friday Favorites- March Madness Style

Hello wonderful people!! Happy Friday! We have been MIA for a little while but we have some surprises headed your way and lots of new material…. but today we are just sticking with Friday Favorites with a bit of a twist…..March Madness style!!! I am a big  HUGE college basketball fan. I love watching basketball and was born and raised a Kansas Jayhawk  so Kansas basketball runs strong through our family. It just so happens this year the first round is taking place in Iowa (Des Moines to be specific!!) and Kansas has been playing here. Yesterday  my dad, Caroline, and I went to the game and pep rally at Wells Fargo Arena and it was a blast! Check out my favorites below to help get in the March Madness spirit! 🙂

Favorite Game Day Apparel: I love my jersey for game days (#15 Mario Chalmers!!) you can dress it up or down and it is super comfy. BUT if you aren’t into jersey’s or don’t own one, one of my favorite game day apparel stores is Tailgate. They have a store in Iowa City filled with amazing Iowa gear but also have a store online with lots of other schools to shop from. We were lucky yesterday and there was a Tailgate stand downtown  Des Moines selling some Kansas gear as well as other schools and we each picked up an item! Super soft tees and sweatshirts with a vintage feel. ❤

Favorite Snack On Game Day: (Photo Via Add a Pinch ) One of my favorite go to snacks on game day is Buffalo Chicken Dip. I don’t ever add blue cheese because I personally don’t like it so I use ranch dressing and cheddar cheese. You will find so many recipes online! Wheat Thins are my top choice for dipping.

Favorite Take-Out: (Photo Via Pizza Hut) Who doesn’t love pizza!?! I also think that at least the Pizza Hut in my neck of the woods has really stepped up their game. With lots of new options and appetizers. My husband and I love their boneless wings and he thinks they taste just as good as BWW. Wings and pizza who knew a perfect match! Also the big dinner box as pictured below is one of our favorites to order. Cheap and good food!

Favorite Cocktail: (Photo Via The Novice Blog ) As I have gotten older if I am going to drink alcohol it better taste good! Ha. But one of my favorite drinks is a mojito and the one below not only is it the perfect color for KU but also looks amazing! Blueberry Mojito.

Favorite Way to Enjoy a Game: With family!!! I love going to or just watching any Kansas Basketball game with my family. Not only do we make great memories but it is also such an amazingly fun time!

 

Hope you all have a great Friday and weekend!!! Hopefully you get to check out some of March Madness. And if you aren’t sure who to cheer for Kansas plays again Saturday at 6:45 PM against UCONN. Should be a good game!! ROCK CHALK!
