Soooooo. The weekend. Seems like a long time ago, already. Am I right? Nevertheless, I need something to blog about today and I’m sure you’re all just jonesing to know what we did.
On Friday I got my nails done. Pretty pink with a extra design detail for Valentine’s Day. I don’t usually go in for this sort of thing but it’s cute and my nail tech does a great job with designs so, yeah. Why not. I also did the usual errands and grocery shopping. My life is a thrill a minute.
Friday night we did our stay at home thing. I livened things up with roasted grape tomatoes and goat cheese instead of our typical cheese and crackers and olives.
On Saturday Jessica and I spent some time together. We hit Home Goods and puttered around and then went out to lunch. I don’t spend nearly enough time with Jess and we hardly ever hang out just the two of us so this was definitely fun and we need to do it more often.
Saturday afternoon may have included a nap and then in the evening Dale and I found ourselves hanging out again with cocktails and cheese and crackers. These adorable napkins I picked up while shopping that day made things Valentine-y and special. We played Mexican Train and watched some TV and fell asleep on the couch.
Sunday, of course, was the main event of the weekend: Super Bowl Day! I spent the morning making football shaped brownies and Buffalo Chicken Dip and other goodies.
Doreen and Mark joined us for the game this year, the first time we’ve ever watched together (but hopefully not the last!). They came early in the afternoon and we spent the day playing Mexican Train and eating delicious food (oysters! and calzones! and shrimp!) and drinking fabulous beer. Basically killing time until the game, if you will.
And the game. Oh, the game. It was, as you may have heard, stressful. There were some pretty low lows but then some very high highs. I was up on my feet, I was sitting on the couch, I was pacing and yelling and sometimes I had to cover my eyes because I just couldn’t look. In the end the Patriots overcame a 25 point deficit and then went into overtime. And won, 34-28. I’m not gloating but it was pretty sweet to see Roger Goodell have to hand that trophy over to Bob Kraft. 5 times, kids. The Pats have now won the Super Bowl 5 times.
The weekend was very very fine.
