The Food: 
Christina's Hot Dip:
We discovered this dip for the Super Bowl last year and it's quickly become a football tailgate/party staple.
- 8 ounce packaged cream cheese (let soften for 20 minutes prior)
- 1 cup sour cream
- 2 cans refried beans (16 ounces each) or if the store has a double can, you can do that like I did
- 1 package taco seasoning
- 2 cups shredded monterey jack cheese
- 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees 
- in a large bowl, mix together cream cheese, refried beans & sour cream
- mix in packet of taco seasoning
- pour mixture into 9x13 baking pan OR multiple smaller pans
- Sprinkle both cheeses evenly on top of the mixture
- Bake for 25-30 minutes 
- Let cool and then serve with tostitos chips

Hot Dog Bar:
 Party bars are the best for any event, especially sporting events.
- Cheese
- Chili (without beans)
- Sauerkraut
- Ketchup, Mustard, Relish
 Make hot dogs, heat buns in the oven . . .
 let guests pick and choose the toppings.

Cookie Dough Balls: 
 For desert we had my cookie dough balls 
You can find the recipe here: Cookie Dough Ball Recipe

The Fun:
We were all in sweats/pajamas and ready to really enjoy the game in a comfortable style, SO there aren't too many photos of us enjoying the game, food and night.  
Wing Prep 
 The boys put a treat on each the Broncos logo and the Seahawks logo to let Nash pick the winner
 He ran right to the Broncos logo with no hesitation -- we for sure thought they were going to be the winners.  I guess we won't leave any big decisions up to Nash anytime soon.
 Dip prep
 We got good wings and hot dogs from Omaha Steaks so of course Nash got a special bag of treats from there too

Wedding is always on my mind.
