Friday is finally here, and this weekend is Super Bowl weekend? Will you watch? Who are you rooting for? I’ll definitely put on the game, even though I don’t have a dog in this fight. (Except Oscar, of course.) That’s OK, though. Georgia had a great run in 2021: the World Series and National Championship ain’t bad. For those of you looking to make it through the weekend in one piece and (maybe) show up for work on Monday, we’ve got 2 things you need 2 survive the big game: an Aperol cocktail and a super simple take on nachos good for one or more! And, of course, it wouldn’t be Friday without that smart-casual style we’re known for around here.
Anyone who follows me regularly knows my love affair with Aperol cocktails. Today, I’ve got a real simple grapefruit Aperol cocktail that’s perfect to satisfy this weekend. If you’re looking for other Aperol cocktails, check out my introduction to Aperol. But also check out this winter Aperol cocktail. If you love Aperol, you’ll love this too.
If you’re not spending this weekend with a large crowd, but you still want to get in the Super Bowl spirit, then this recipe is for you. I put together these mini nachos: a super simple way to make delicious nachos for a few. I mean, you can’t go wrong with shredded chicken, but substitute for any protein (or not), and these things are just as delicious.
Sometimes it’s easy to forget just how much fun sneakers can really be. They don’t get featured that often over here on the blog, but how cute are these snakeskin slip ons from Vince? (Similar here and here.) Animal print adds visual interest to any outfit. And when you already have something fun going, why not make it that much more fun-er? (Double comparative for emphasis only!)
Happy Friday, ladies! And enjoy the big game this weekend with friends and loved ones.

Cute post and the nachos sound delish..plus I am a Lifetime WW and that is a great portion control recipe too. Your room is so cute, love the red buffet and distressed wood finishes and the rug under the table is perfect! Of course I love your outfit and the daily look feature. Have a great weekend.
when you split the nachos into mini nachos you get all the good stuff in every bite!
What’s the cats name?
Hello, I really like your look today. You look beautiful and fit. Hello to Oscar and Ollie. I will have to try those mini tacos. Thanks for your blog. Enjoy the game.
thanks, Rory! i so appreciate you being here.
Love your sweater with the buttons..just adds something special to it! I always enjoy the commercials on Super Bowl Sunday. Tell Oscar I said hi ❤️
they always have the best commercials. i just saw a clip of Anna Kendricks staring down Barbie. hilarious!
Hi Beth, everything looks lovely, and you look so relaxed too. Lovely to see Ollie in the picture, have a lovely weekend regards Julie from England 🇬🇧 xoxo
thanks so much for stopping by today, Julie!
I usually love your posts and enjoy your recipes. This post has so many ads in between the lists of ingredients I not sure what ingredients I need to get to make the recipes. Some of ads are even covering up part of the ingredients. I don’t know what changed but the recipes are unreadable.
thanks for the feedback. we just had an audit of the recipe ads and see one ad in the upper right corner. but nothing between the ingredients and instructions. can you take another look? thank you.
Perfect outfit. Adorable sweater and sneakers complement each other so nicely. Your hair is the crown jewel in every outfit. I’m convinced you could wear a brown paper bag and look stunning. Love to Oscar and Ollie. Assume they’ll have SB snacks too.
Oscar always gets a special bone for the weekend. But can you believe Ollie doesn’t like treats?!
Love seeing pictures of the pets . Especially Ollie the cat. Love your blog. .
Ollie has such a sweet temprament!
Hi. Thanks for the post. About the cocktail…you have lime juice down twice. Is that an accidental duplicate or is one of the lime juices supposed to be 4 oz of lemon juice? Also, about how many drinks does this batch recipe make? Thanks again! Happy Super Bowling.
thanks for the feedback. only 4 ounces of lime juice. no lemon juice. the recipe has been updated. 8 – 10 drinks per batch.
I think I somehow missed this post…but I love your look; especially the snake skin sneakers which are of course, not available! Neither is the sweater in my size. Oh well! Your followers must snap things up the minute they’re posted! I must do that. Lol!
Love pictures of Oscar. He has kind eyes. He looks like he would be very friendly.
Thanks for the great recipes. Have a fun Super Bowl!
