{Dress Up Your Tailgate}: Pumpkin Pie Dip

Fall is upon us, which means cooler weather, college football, little league baseball, gorgeous colors, fun family activities, friday night lights, the upcoming world series AND... Tailgate Parties!!!

As I mentioned in my 50 Ways to Make Fall Fabulous post, I am pumped!!! I LOVE Fall! :)

And I LOVE to throw a good party!

That said, every Friday this fall (and every single day in October, linking up with The Nester's 31 Days series) I will be hosting a brand new "Dress Up Your Tailgate" ("31 Days to Dressing Up Your Tailgate" in October) series right here on the blog!

I am lining up some fabulous guest bloggers and will include everything from fall fashion to food to decorations to party favors, you name it...a variety of ideas that will jazz up anything from a football tailgate party to a world series game-watching party!

Are you in?
