Winner update: 9/19/13: This giveaway is now closed. Thanks so much to everyone that entered! And the lucky random winner is… commenter #6 KELSEY JAST! Congrats!


If there’s one great thing about summer coming to an end, it’s that our favorite season of the year (at least in my house!) is about to begin… and I’m not talking about fall – I’m talking FOOTBALL! ;)

There are so many fantastic things that football season brings: game day get-togethers, tailgating, high-fives with fellow fans of your team, and even – or sometimes especially – playful banter with your friends rooting for the opposing team. There’s just an air of excitement all around… and this year we’ve teamed up with Frito-Lay to help get you fired up & ready for it all to begin! Here’s how…

P.S. My daughters are pictured here sporting the gear of our hometown team… just like most of their little friends do. Our own close friends know that Sonny (or “Dad”), who grew up near Oakland, still remains faithful to his own childhood favorite… but we’ve lived in San Diego for 15 years now, and he recently said “if this is the extent of their rebellion against him he’s cool with it”. HA! And ya… wouldn’t that be nice?! ;)
