Valentines Day 2009!!!

This past Saturday was Valentines Day. I have never been one of those crazy romantic people who have to be doing something all crazy on this day. I even specifically told Mark...NO FLOWERS! They jack up the prices and I would much rather have new shoes! In the past, I have surprised Mark with Beer, Heart Shaped Pizzas, Misfit Coffee Mug, cookies, etc... This year, I asked if he wanted me to pick something out for him or if he would rather just go shopping at The Path. He was quick to choose The Path. I, in turn, made his life easier by sending him a link and picture of what I wanted as well. Needless to say, we both got what we wanted...him, a new frame for his bike...it weighs like 3 lbs...guess that's good.. me, a bracelet from Tiffany & Co. with an "L" charm on it. We got the kids some cool shirts and Brooke got some new toys. The rest of our day was spent on the patio...I'll save the for another post.

Brooke is clapping!

Yesterday, JoAnn (mom-in-law) was watching Brooke. I spoke with her later in the day and she said that Brooke was clapping all day...I was like WHAT? JoAnn thought that Brooke had been doing it for a while now. I was like...NO!!! This is her first time!! So, being the obssessive compulsive person I am...I spent several minutes this morning, making a fool out of myself, trying to get Brooke to clap.I succeeded!!! Excuse the mess...I clearly had better things to do than make the bed this morning.

Super Bowl XLIII

Last weekend was the Super Bowl. Originally, I was just going to watch it for the fn comercials. However, since the Steelers made it, April insisted on having a party. Well, you all know how I love having people over, so we decided to have it at our house.
I was really looking forward to this game sine 1) The AZ Cardinals were in it (I have lots of family living there) and 2)I have really been school'd on the Steelers this past year (thanks to April). It suddenly dawned on me that I had to figure out who to root for! Was it the Cardinals since my family lives there or was it the Steelers cuz one of my BFF's is from there and I know alot about them. I went back and forth, but have to say that my final decision came pretty easy when Mike (ex-husband) told me who he was for. As you can tell by the pictures below...I went with the Steelers. :-) At first I felt a little guilty, but then I realized 1) My family isn't FROM AZ, they are from Calif. 2) I did't want to be a Band-Wagoner (someone who roots for a team only because they think they are going to win and in reality they know nothing about the team - those people are the worst) 3) I can safely say I can name multiple players for the Steelers and actually got to wear authentic gear (not a T-shirt I picked up at Albertsons that was manufacutred in China the day they announced who was going to the Super bowl).
The game turned out to be a GREAT game. We had a handful of people over and an overload of junk food.
