Superbowl Shenanigans ~ Melissa








my mom's kitchen...usually spotless...the mess is my fault ~ dinner was on us last night as a thank you & I was jumping back & forth between cooking & sewing








Special request from Jason....12th Man Beer Can hats for the boys' roadtrip to Arizona (they are Superbowl bound!!!).  So highbrow, cough cough, but every fan needs one, right?  We spent the weekend with my mom and these hats were a true group effort ~ I cut the cans into pieces and did the seaming, Jason punched all the holes in the aluminum, my mom used her mad crochet skills, and Dozer supervised!
 
They were a blast to make ~ sorry I can't share a recipe but we fudged these caps from beginning to end ~ they're freeform and custom fit.  There are tons of patterns out there, though...we just couldn't find one that suited our vision.  I think they turned out fantastic.  Jason thinks they are perfect, so that's all that matters anyway. 
 
Note to self - when working against a deadline, make sure to allow time for the beer to be imbibed.  Sadly, this surprisingly tasty beer went down the drain except for a few small glasses.  Boo.  Hoo.
 
 
GO HAWKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    1. yeah ~ pouring it down the drain was just wrong but I surely can't drink that much beer (in a week, let alone a day!)

      Jason is pretty proud of them :)

  3. How exciting! I'm super pumped that Jason gets to go see the Hawks at the Superbowl. Talk about crossing something good off your bucket list!

    Jon went to the Home Run Derby in Minneapolis last year, had great seats, and had 15 seconds of fame when the guy in front of him caught a ball and they were both on ESPN. People from across the country saw him and gave him a facebook shout out. I still get the occasional, "I'm sorry Kelly, were YOU on ESPN?"...

    1. that's funny :)

      Jason did standby at the All Star game when it was in Seattle ~ and all I got was a lousy t-shirt (just kidding ~ it's not lousy...I still wear it as a nightshirt ~it's an XXL and comes down to my knees!

  4. Not many of us get to say we drove to AZ with buds to watch our home team play in the Superbowl. The hats are the perfect touch. Go HAWKS!
