So today is the big day . . . Super Bowl XLIV!!! Does everyone have something fun planned or just keeping it low key and relaxing at home? We are staying home, but having Mike's family over . . . so that will be fun. Mike and I went out to eat last night, then after dinner we went and got all the food. I put together a cute little table last night with some decorations (which I will post in the next few days . . .) and got some cute plates and napkins perfect for game day!
So I am ready for some football, food, family and frosty beverages! ha ha! I'm also looking forward to seeing the commercials, those are always so fun to watch! I am routing for The Saints! Normally I would be pulling for the Colts since I am a Peyton fan and really fan of the Manning's in general. The Manning's have some history here where I live and since I went to the same school (Ole Miss) as Eli and his dad, Archie Manning - I normally route for them. My Dad is a huge "Manning" fan, but I am going to have to be the black sheep of the family and route for NOLA! I really want them to win because:
1. they have never made it to a Super Bowl (the Colts have . . and won)
2. I want them to win for their city! I think it would be a great boost and positive thing for New Orleans!
I was in New Orleans the first of January for a few days and I wish SO bad I had known that they were going to be going to the SB, because I would have purchased a couple T-shirts and stuff to wear today. But I did get Mike a cool Saints hat, which I'm sure he will be sporting tonight. So that's who I am cheering for tonight . . . how bout you, who is everyone hoping to win???
Another thing I LOVE about this day is that it's not only the day of the Super Bowl but it's also the day of the PUPPY BOWL!! LOL . . . . Mike and I LOVE watching this every year. It is the funniest, cutest thing ever!! It is on Animal Planet and I think they play it over and over on game day! So check it out! It's so funny to watch!
As I said before, I will be back soon to post pics of my little Super Bowl spread, but in the meantime, check out a few of these ADORABLE ideas for Super Bowl parities . . .
