Super Bowl XLII

After a quiet, but long day at work on a Sunday afternoon, I finally made it home some time into the 1st quarter of the Super Bowl game between the NY Giants and the New England Patriots. Because our house has become known among our friends as the entertainment headquarters, naturally, we had a Super Bowl party. The girls in my Small Group at church were so great to go through my cabinets to grab serving utensils, plates, napkins, etc. Justin had the house looking good and the projector upstairs was certainly not a disappointment. In fact, the 140 inch high definition image in our media room was quite impressive... thanks to my amazing husband who is the home theater guru. Instead of watching Tom Petty break the hearts of millions during half time, our Small Group gathered to pray. I just love the people in our group! Not that I REALLY care, but I have always been a Patriot fan because that was my high school mascot. As much as I love to see an underdog pull of a win, must admit, I was a little disappointed to see the Patriots lose.

After the game, we pulled out the Wii and had a Guitar Hero tournament. I don't think I've mentioned my love for this game. We played it for the first time on New Year's Eve with our neighbors, Matt and Amy. We were having so much fun, that we played until 2:30 in the morning! I loved the game so much that Justin surprised me with our own copy a few weeks later. I have mastered the easy level, and I've almost beat the medium level, but I have reached the peak of my skill level without actually practicing, so I may get a little bored with trying to learn the hard and expert levels. Anyway, back to the story... Our friends Hal and Maghan Craig also have Guitar Hero and Hal and I had wanted to challenge each other because we both think we're pretty good. ;-) I beat him twice, and he beat me once. Jared Woodward and Ben Grizzle were also very good, but none was more entertaining than my husband. Justin got major style and entertainment points as he jumped around putting on a total show. Sure he missed a lot of notes, but his performance was amazing!

We had a great night, and look forward to many more fun nights with our group!

Sounds like so much fun! So, I got a swatch of wholewheat and I am in love with it! It is going to be our main color. I even designed our kitchen around it! HA! Maybe you should consult in your "spare time." 2 reviews of 3 down, 1 more to go! By the way I saw our street is no longer house free, they are fast at getting those houses up! I was semi-worried that ours wouldn't be done bu August but not anymore! Have a wonderful weekend!

That sounds like a great time! Unfortunately, all our Super Bowl plans were canceled by a sick baby. EVERYTHING changes when you have a baby--I keep having to learn this lesson over and over.

How I wish I could've been a fly on the wall as you guys played Wii...I bet ya'll were laughing so hard! I've never seen anyone play it - EVER - and am dying to try it out for myself! Several friends have told me that they actually were sore the first few times they played - craziness!
