Friend Making Monday: Superbowl Edition

The Superbowl Edition of Friend Making Monday...
Did you watch the Superbowl? Nope, not really. I had a headache all day that erupted into a migraine right around 6 p.m. So I took a painkiller and went upstairs in search of a dark, quiet room. The only "cure" for me is to fall asleep, though it took awhile because of the pain hammering away in my head. Once I woke up (right after halftime), the headache was gone. Who were you rooting for? I was hoping that the Colts would win, but I'm glad for New Orleans' sake that the Saints pulled it off. If not, what did you do instead? I sat at the dining room table with my laptop and read blogs while occasionally glancing up at the TV. Lately, too much suspense/knuckle-biting excitement has overwhelmed me, whether it's a video game or movie or even football. I think I have a bit of emotional overload with all of the recent events in my life. There must be a beach on a tropical island with my name on it...just got to make it there! Where did you watch it/not watch it? A blizzard dumped record-breaking amounts of snow here, so we can't go anywhere!!! What did you eat? I fussed about the lack of Superbowl-worthy eats in our house, so hubby walked to the grocery store and stocked up. Apparently he and the kids had quite the party while I was upstairs in pain (sniff, sniff). They ate meatballs, chicken tenders, curly fries, chips and cookies. I snacked on what was left and drank Gingerale. Being the good Mommy that I am (smile), I had purchased football paper plates at Target just for the occasion. Of course, I never did get around to hanging the football pennant I had also purchased...guess I'll save it for next year. Favorite Superbowl commercial? I didn't watch any but loved the Pro-life one from reading about it all week. Least favorite? I hate the unnecessarily provocative ones - hello?!? Families with kids are watching! What did you think of the halftime show? Didn't see it. They have been really boring the last few years. Yawn. Who do you wish would have been the halftime show? I think the Black-Eyed Peas would put on a great show. Let Cirque Du Soleil put one on - at least it'd be interesting and something different! Ok, these are my responses - what about YOU?

I didn't watch but like 10 seconds of the whole game...too busy running after my toddler...but I did want to say that I was so happy about all the media attention the pro-life commercial got before it even aired. What a message!

Blessings, Grace

That's exactly what I have to do when I get migraines too. Once I fall asleep and wake up they are gone. Sounds like the boys had great munchies for the game. I agree with you on the provocative commercials. I don't care much for them.

Happy FMM
I am so glad that your head ache is better!
I also wanted the Colts to win, but was happy to see New Orleans cheering and celebrating

So sorry about your headache. Hope you stay well and happy. That was awesome of your hubby to WALK to the store. :)
I'm with you on the least favorite commercials. Keep it clean.

Sorry about the headache. That is never fun!! Sounds like the fam had some good eats, and you bought football plates that is what made it a party :)

I love the idea of Cirque du Soleil doing a halftime show. That would be so neat.
