Birthday/Super Bowl Weekend

Well, my birthday and superbowl weekend was marvelous. (Thanks for all the birthday wishes last week!)

Like I said, I put my birthday dinner off until Saturday night so that I could go get in a good workout Friday night – which did not disappoint. The workout was extra hard – I guess he was testing my old age.

Oh, and I can’t go without mentioning the awesome Chocolate & Wine gift basket thatTorrance’s step mom sent me!

Seriously, those chocolate covered pretzels are the best I’ve ever had. EV-ER.

After my workout we watched movies and downloaded a ton of new music. It was time to update our library. And on that note, it reminds me – a song that I am super-loving right now is:

Macklemore Thrift Shop

Yeah, I love this song for some reason (Thrift Shop by Macklemore & Ryan Lewis). I was going to post the video… but it is just too ridiculous.

Sorry, side-tracked – back to the weekend stuff…. Saturday I actually went and did a little shopping. I have been on a mission to find some flat tan boots. All of my boots have heels but I have been wanting something casual, and finding comfy boots is always a project for me because I have giant calves.

It was a success, though they weren’t the exact color I was wanting, I couldn’t be too choosy.

Plain, "casual" Tees were also on my agenda, which I feel that American Eagle alway has the comfiest Tees.

After about an hour at the mall I was burnt out on all that business and headed home to get ready for dinner.

If you are wondering, I ate a delicious steak and it was everything I hoped and dreamed for.


Speaking of shoving my face, Superbowl Sunday was actually pretty mellow on the food front for me this year. Usually we have a feast, or go somewhere where there is a feast. But I kept things pretty under control this year.


Homemade guacamole, and black bean and chicken nachos! I also snacked on some cantaloupe (random?) and drank some beers.

I also have a secret, I think I am the only person who doesn’t looooove Beyonce. Honestly, I really am not a huge fan of hers, like I could take her or leave her.

And as far as commercials this year, obviously the Budweiser Clydesdale is a classic (the animal ones get me every time) but I loved the Doritos goat commercial. Simply because I have a soft spot for goats and a goat screaming is just hilarious.


  • Best thing you ate this weekend?
  • Do you ever drink beer?

  1. Glad your birthday was great!! The guacamole looked amazing!!!!!!

    Best thing I ate this weekend? I had mashed sweet potato with coconut milk – amazing. Oh and then the left over coconut milk was used for Pina Colada’s 😉

    I never ever drink beer. It tastes too “boyish” for me. wine is my favourite, followed by my fruity drinks (cosmos are my fav), then maybe a coolers.

    Ps. I didn’t like, nor do I like Beyonce. I was quite disappointed.

  2. I feel the same about Beyonce. I feel like she is just not all that relevant. Oh well. Her dance moves are pretty interesting. HA!

  3. Ditto to Beyonce.
    Also happy to hear about someone else who teared up with the Budweiser commercial. I didn’t actually see the commercial but heard the music and just knew it had to be sad. Monday morning I saw a quick clip of it and burst out in tears. Oh boy!

      • Totally not an upbeat song. I said, what is this commercial (I was in the kitchen) and was told the Clydesdale’s and I just new I’d turn to mush. 🙂
