So yesterday was my actual birthday, and Super Bowl Sunday. Since we are trying to keep germs at bay, we didn't have our usual SB party but our nephew Brad came over to watch the game as well as my parents and my brother, Matt. My hubby knows how much I love shrimp so he made tons of peel and eat shrimp for everybody and of course there was the usual suspects: nachos, chips and dip, and pizza. The staples of my evening were shrimp and ice cream cake! I was so excited when my hubby and my boys pulled a DQ ice cream cake out of the freezer last night!!! Oh my, I SO didn't need it, but it was SO GOOD! I had a piece at the start of the Super Bowl, and another 1/2 piece at halftime. I've come to the conclusion that calories don't count on your birthday!!
Congratulations to the Pittsburgh Steelers on their victory last night. Our household was divided for support of the Steelers and the Cardinals. The boys were cheering for Pittsburgh and my hubby and I were rooting for Arizona. Darn it, AZ almost had it! But I was even happier that it was a good game and not a one-sided blow out. And the commercials were hilarious! The E*Trade babies were so funny, the Doritos ad with the crystal ball was really good, but it was the Pepsi ad where everyone was getting hurt absolutely had us rolling! Especially the boys! Seeing them get so tickled was cracking me up! So it was good night. I hope everybody else enjoyed their evening whether they spent it watching the SB or not!
On a side note, my treadmill is on protest this week. Gasp! It has been acting up for the last couple of days so I asked my hubby to look at it yesterday. When I went downstairs to check on him, he had the whole motor part exposed and taken apart! Double gasp!! It turns out, the drive belt is completely stretched out and needs to be replaced. So I ordered a new one this morning and it should be here by the end of the week...hopefully. So what's a girl to do? Thankfully my mom and dad have a treadmill so the kids and I just loaded up and headed to their house so I could get my run in. I did 7.5 miles while I watched the boys out the window have sled races! It felt great. See you later, lovelies! And thank you all for your birthday wishes!!!
