Texas Pride and Football!

  Sams Club Game Day Central {select stores having NFL Stars appearances 2/1 and 2/2} #MealsTogether

There is nothing better than Texas Pride and Football!! It is almost time for the Big Game and I'm ready. I have the supplies for my Ultimate Buffalo BLT ready and my boy is getting excited about watching football with his Papa. I've been talking a lot about football last week and this week (and well all the time because I live in a Football Family) and I have another announcement to make!

If you live in the Dallas, Houston, or Austin area, you could rub elbows with an NFL Star this weekend! 

Texas Pride and Football

NFL Stars will be making appearances at participating Sam's Clubs in the Dallas, Houston, and Austin areas this Friday and Saturday {February 1 and 2} from 1:00 – 4:00pm. My boy and I didn't get to see one of the players during our last trip to the Dallas area, so we are looking forward to seeing either Tony Casillas or Rocket Ismail on Saturday. We haven't decided which one yet! We will be also be sampling yummy Tyson Crispy Strips paired with {Diet} Coke and KC Masterpiece BBQ Sauce and of course we will be back to show you what we bought and created next week! So, let me give you the inside scoop for this Friday and Saturday!!

    I think that is so great that these players are meeting the fans, I’m sure everyone will be thrilled! I also entered the Pinterest contest, I love Sam’s Club!!

  4. We’re going this weekend too and it’s exciting. We won’t attend a party with 100+ guests changing toilet paper rolls for cash though so I’m jealous. 😉

      Oh you should totally bribe Bug to change the toilet paper rolls for you!
