I don't know if you guys have heard or not, but A&M
played kicked some OU booty in a little football game last night.
The Cotton Bowl! I don't know a lot about football, but I do know that OU is a really good team, and A&M beat them yesterday! WHOOP! The game was right next door to us in Arlington, but the tickets were mucho dinero, so some of my friends and I went to plan B.
My friend Ashley works at this really cool office that has a great room to host any sort of "watch party", so that's what we did. We all met there before the game, munched on some pizza for dinner, and had a ball. I spent yesterday afternoon making some snacks for the big game...

That dip with some Tostitos Scoops is hard to beat. I'm pretty sure people have been making it for like 50 years, but it never gets old (at least it doesn't to me). In case you don't know how to make it, just google "7-layer dip" and about 1,700 recipes will pop up.
A Snickers cupcake, on the other hand, is something that is fairly new to me. My sister gave me the recipe, and I've made them twice. I won't lie...they're a bit time consuming, but they are realllllly good. In my opinion, the best part of these is the caramel sauce. It's cool to see how the sauce comes together (it's basically just burnt sugar and butter), and it's really cool to taste it. Yummm!

Both of those are crowd pleasers!
Austin and I were some of the first people to arrive yesterday, so I got some good pics of the space!
This was where the majority of the action took place:
To the left of this room was an amazing terrace with a view of downtown Dallas!

We had so much fun watching the game and just hanging out. It definitely would have been cool to be at Jerry World to see everything live, but it was also a blast to be in a room full of Aggies watching it all go down!

It was a great night!!!
