Spanish Heartbreak

It's been a dramatic World Cup already...full of ecstasy and agony, glory and defeat. It's hard to believe, but Spain (one of Abby Craig's favorite teams) lost its second game and has been knocked out of the first round.The former Champions fell yesterday to Chile (2-0).

Such a sad day for such an amazing team.

Father's Day 2014

It's been a crazy few days over here in the Jools' household since the World Cup started on Thursday. Since then, it feels as if I am living in a sports bar. Soccer is always on the the big screen, as well as good food, good beer, and screaming and laughter.

If you follow soccer, you know it's just the beginning. The fun will go on for an entire month.

Today is the day that Argentina takes the field for the first time in Brazil. Being that Mr. Jools is from Argentina and our daughters have that same passionate soccer-obsessed blood pulsating through them, we do it up right (like every four years).

Empanadas with Chimichurri. Dulce de leche. Blue and white flags and decorations throughout the house. Carlos Gardel drifting softly between games.

That's what is going on over here on this Father's Day. Passion, love, and good times.

Happy Father's Day to all the dads out there and hope you all are having a great day too!

Go Argentina!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
