Good morning! { giveaway! }

Did you watch the Superbowl last night?

We were supposed to go to a party at a friend's house but ended up with a sick kid so we stayed home.
I made Buffalo Chicken dip, Pizza dip, Terriyaki meatballs, homemade guacomole, and turkey tortilla pinwheels.
So.Much.Food. We'll have leftovers for days.
But that means I don't have to cook this week. Winning!

I didn't care at all about the game. Just the commercials and the food.

And I was excited for The Voice after the game. Did you watch that?
Ohmygoodness, I love that show!!
I'm on Team Blake.
Early favorites are the opera singer from Wichita, Chris Mann.
And I also loved Tony Lucca with his gravely voice...
It's on again tonight. You should watch.

*****
I found this image the other day and loved it.
It is so true!! Success is not always what's seen on the surface.


*****
We listed a new necklace in the shop the other day.
So sweet...
Teeny Hearts necklace

I watched most of the game. As much as my 2 year old would let me!

Jeannine said...

Husband and I watched the game at home. He made chicken wings, two flavors, potato skins and grilled vegies. He's a champ! I was disappointed that I had seen most of the commercials earlier in the week.

I watched the games with my girls. So fun! :)

Great giveaway!

T@iy@ said...

We *tried to watch the super bowl. We went to a party, I made a bunch of food, so we went. It was supposed to be 'family friendly'(we were told there would be a kid area, with crafts, games, etc...), but they just set the kids up by the stage with blocks and my older daughter (almost 4) knocked over a microphone (AHH!) and my younger daughter (20 months) *almost hit the drums but I caught her just in time, so we packed up and left.(the only other 'kid' option was to let them play in a kids room, away from parents, unsupervised, where we couldn't see the Super Bowl anyway- wasn't happening) We came home and my hubs found out you could get it streaming, but it was ten-fifteen minutes behind, you couldn't see commercials and it'd freeze for minutes and then catch up. So we *sort of watched it. Remember, you asked. haha

The food turned out *great, though, and we ended up have good family time together anyway, so it wasn't a bad thing. Just kind of an odd deal.

stephanie said...

I watched the ads. And watched my husband root for the opposing team of our host - which almost earned him a spot on the porch! And watched our son tire out the kitten! Great game, ha ha!

Anonymous said...

Watched it though I'm not a big football fan! Nice evening relaxing with hubby though!

Miriam Prantner said...

I watched part of it. Watched a little after the girls went to bed, went upstairs to do a little crafting, and then came back for the furious finish.

Jen the CraftinCowgirl said...

I just pinned a couple of images here. The gorgeous necklace, of course! And the Success image. I love it and so true!

jentozier said...

Because of the time zone difference between Zurich and Indy, I missed the game...meaning, I REALLY missed eating 43 different kinds of dip and desserts and being with my dear friends.

Of course we watched the Super Bowl! We had a party, didn't care who won, just had fun! And loved the commercials!

I watched as much as my sick body could stay awake. Madonna is older than me so if I can't be in amazing shape I hope this comment makes me skinny!

Kara Y. Dickinson said...

We watched the Superbowl. I feel sorry for the Patriots because I doomed them by going for them. Every team I've gone for in the post-season has lost!

Dede said...

Yes we watched! I had a vested interest. If my team won I got FREE shipping on a cross stitch order I had placed AND they won!!!!! Save me money for more stash! LOL
Did not like the half time--but never cared for her music anyway--bring back Country Music stars...PLEASE. If nothing else would rather watch marching bands! Commercials were so so--none that really stood out either...some cuter than others--maybe the Chevy truck was the best for us...

Donna said...

I kind of watched it. I was making party favors for my daughter's birthday party and valentine's day gifts for her teachers.

I did watch the Super Bowl, more importantly though I watched The Voice afterwards! I love that show!! The girl that Blake picked lives not too far from where I live. Our local news showed the reaction of her family and friends watching :)

I watched parts of the Super Bowl in between playing with my adorable nieces and nephews. Those little kiddos were the best part of the evening.

Rachael said...

I pinned your whole. Blog address to stuff I like!

merlin said...

I watched, usually I cheer for whoever has the ball, which means in the end, my team ALWAYS wins, but this year I was a bit peeved with a particular team for what I thought was poor sportsmanship (letting a player go on the eve of the SB) so I actually chose a team, the Giants, and paid attention and had the longest minute of my life as the final minute played out. Even better, the better team (in my opinion) won.

LyB said...

I watched the Super Bowl and I liked it! Even the game! ;)

I watched the Superbowl. We tuned in for the last part of the game and we got to see that sweet catch from Manning to Manningham. It was a good game. But, I do watch it for the commercials which are the best!!

Dawn@MakingHome said...

I did watch it , but could care less as my team did not make it :( I watched for the commercials and half time show ( which I thought was much better than the last couple years).
I LOVE the voice too ! One of my favs so far was the "Janis Joplin" sounding rocker chic ! I think it will be an interesting season !

Dawn@Making Home said...

I pinned your necklace to my "Products I Love " board.

Beautiful Disaster said...

Watched the superbowl after getting off of work last night. Glad that the Giants won, Pats definitely gave it their all at the end though, only like a foot shy from winning. Oh well (:

Then I watched the Voice for the first time with my sis, she loves it and I now love it too. Team Blake and Team Adam for me.

Pinning this to Pinterest now that I officially have an account there and on my FB.

Now I am hoping that leaving this comment will make me rich, beautiful, and skinny. Or at least let me win a gift certificate :D

I watched the first half of the game at my brother's house and then had an emergency at home with our goat and had to leave early and missed the entire 2nd half! booo!
But I didn't miss out on the food, we had plenty of time to eat lots before :)

I watched it while cooking and packing orders. I made fajitas for dinner (which my hubby thought was good game food until he found out they were tofu fajitas). But they were yummy, so all was forgiven!

Watched the Super Bowl only so I could watch the excitement of my 6 year old watching football;) He loves the game! I the 49ers were playing I would have been WAY more into it! I did my best to create a party environment for the kids though;) Junk food o'rama, noise blowers, jumping on the couch during exciting plays, making our own pizza... Anything to make a happy memory for my kidlettes <3
