Sunday Bloody Sunday

                                                    Wow, great song...but creepy post title!

So, we have a new Sunday night tradition around these parts. Can you guess what it is? It's True Blood viewing parties of course! Last Sunday, our friend Linnea held an awesome True Blood premier party. She had an amazing dinner straight out of Bon Temps complete with beans and rice, collard greens, hush puppies, and O Negative punch. For dessert, we sunk our fangs into chocolate dipped strawberries and bite marked cupcakes. Our hostess with the mostess also made sure that we were complete with bite marks on our own necks before the show started.

It was such a fun night and Linnea did a great job with the festivities! And, as our friend Corynn AKA Eric's #1 Fan says, "Oh, Ike Applebaum....."

Delicious O Negative Punch

O Negative Punch:

1 Bottle of Sparkling Wine
1 container Cranberry Concentrate
1/2 of 2 Liter of 7-Up

(don't drink too much or you may end up giving Vampires permission to enter your house!)

Do you have any guilty pleasures that you watch? Hope your Sunday doesn't suck! (that was a pretty lame one!)

Just giving myself some incentive to get my homework done early....


  1. what an awesome way to watch a show! I used to watch True Blood but then I stopped because it didn't interest me anymore. but I do love The Vampire Diaries, Pretty Little Liars, Switched at Birth, The Lying Game, The Secret Circle, Jersey Shore and MORE :D and I always work out while I watch those shows!
    anyway, all the snacks and drinks look so yummy and I'm especially hungry right now, so it's hard to see those bites :P

  6. Thank you for stopping and the lovely comment Amanda :)

    Sometimes I have the craziest imagination too, that's why I never take pictures at night or even in the late afternoon because I am sure I will run back home
