Happy March Madness! Well, I'm happy, but not really, really happy. This is the first time in 18 years that my Gators aren't in the tourney. I'm trying hard not to be depressed.
These super, adorable wedges from Lillybee are helping lift my mood. I can't help but smile at their array of colors. They have lots of different color combos, depending upon which school you cheer for. They are really comfortable too. I'm all about comfort these days. They carry flats and rain boots. Here are all of the Gator options. Cute, right?!!
I hope you all enjoy March Madness. Here is a printable bracket in case you don't have one yet.

At New York Fashion Week, Tommy Hilfiger, in my opinion, was the highlight! His show was inspired by America's favorite game to celebrate the 30th anniversary of his clothing empire.
The floor was covered in astro turf to mimic a football field. The name Hilfiger was picked out in huge letters and a fantasy scoreboard read: "Home 20, Guests 15" while an entire wall was covered in football helmets.
I love, love the clutch. It's available now. And how great are those wedge heel football boots?!

I think we've all seen the pictures on the internet of these marvelous "snack stadiums". (I featured them in a post in 2013.) Or maybe, you are a culinary King or Queen and you've built one yourself! They are truly a wonder to behold.
Well, for those of us that are lacking in snack stadium building skills, there is now the potential for help. Dallas and Rich have developed a trademarked system to easily build a snack stadium. It is comprised of eleven pieces, made with a process called injection plastic molding. The food containers are fully customizable and are easy to store. They are reusable, dishwasher-safe, and microwave-safe! They have a Kickstarter campaign going to get their idea running. It's a great concept and I hope they are successful.

Super Bowl XLIX
Sunday, February 1, 5:30 PM on NBC
New England Patriots
How will you celebrate?
In 2012 when the Patriots and the Giants were in the Super Bowl. I made these great red and blue, team colored Jell-O Shots. They were much easier to make than traditional Jell-O shots. I highly recommend them. Here is the post and recipe.
If you are in need of some Super Bowl party inspiration, be sure to check out my Pinterest board and my other posts related to Super Bowl.
Super Bowl is always a fun day but in a way it's bittersweet since it marks the end of the season. Happy Sunday!

I love loaded nachos so I went searching for a healthy alternative. These are really yummy and can be topped with variety of ingredients depending on your preferences.
2 large sweet potatoes, sliced 1/4 inch thick
1 Tbsp. olive oil
1 tsp. paprika
1 tsp. garlic powder
salt and pepper, to taste
1 cup canned black beans, rinsed
1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1/4 cup chopped green onions
1 avocado, diced or smashed
Directions: Preheat oven to 425F and lightly spray a baking sheet with cooking spray. Wash and dry your sweet potatoes, then use a vegetable peeler to peel them. Slice them into 1/4 inch rounds and place in a large bowl. Drizzle with olive oil. Season with paprika, garlic powder, and salt and pepper, and toss well. Place potatoes in a single layer on your baking sheet. Bake for 40 minutes, turning them over halfway through to ensure they don't burn. Remove from oven and transfer rounds to a cast iron skillet or oven safe dish, allowing the edges to slightly overlap. Top with beans and cheese before returning to the oven for an additional 5 minutes, or until cheese is melted. Remove from oven and sprinkle with chopped green onions. Serve with avocado, Greek yogurt or sour cream, and salsa.
