Hello! Hello!

It's time.  Really.  Time to get a little sappy up in here.  You're ready for it, right?  Here's my amazing truth:  I am totally in love with my scrumptious hubby.  He's the one.

We recently celebrated our 9th wedding anniversary and I finally was able to get him the gift I searched for with vigor to be his wedding gift.  Originally, I failed.  I have redeemed myself.  Can you tell I'm feeling smug as a bug?! 
That's right.  A signed Jets helmet, by none other than our favorite Jet, the retired Curtis Martin.  Here's the thing.  We love football.  No, we RREEEEAAALLLYYY love football.  And especially, the New York Jets. 

My gift to him for our wedding was a three tier gift.  The first tag and gift said "For Now" and was a handkerchief I had embroidered.  The second tag said "For Later" and let's just say it was for our wedding night.  (It was PG, I swear!)  The third tag said "Forever" and was a signed 8X10 picture of Curtis.  That was as close as I could get at the time. 

Because I had finally found THE gift, I wanted to surprise him with the same type of gift.  Here's the part where you get something out of this too.  I needed a "For Now" gift.  I decided to make my own Football Word Art to hang in our basement... well, in our Jets basement. 
This is my anniversary gift.  I am so in love with the word art.  The wine, of course, was "for later." 

Right around the time we got married, Coors Light ran a "music" commercial during the football season called "Here's to Football."  We. LOVED. it. 

It was such an exciting time in our lives; we were excited about us, excited about football season.  The commercial reminds us of that carefree time. 

I decided it was the perfect thing to put into a frame.  The word/subway art was the perfect way to do it.  Sorry for the blurry below...it was a weird weather day outside and of course, this blogger dropped the frame right on the stone underneath.  Typical.
I just used powerpoint and the word art feature.  All the letters are black and green.  (j-e-t-s.  Jets! Jets! Jets!) 

BUT, just for you, I made one that has brown and green lettering so that it's general football colors.  You could really do any color you want to match your team. 

Wait, if you are thinking of a certain New England team's colors right now.... I'm totally sticking my tongue out at you! Just kidding....

You can click on the below links to print either one, the black or the brown.  The size of the paper is 8.5X14, legal size.  I hope you enjoy it! 

Oh!  How did the hubby like the gift?!?  He loves the word art... I won't tell you the words he said though when he saw the helmet.  He was excited, trust me.  Wink Wink. 

Do you love football as much as us?  Let me know what you think of my first word art attempt! 

Take care and have a great week!
