If you wanted the Philadelphia Eagles to win the Super Bowl, raise your hand.
Now that I got everyone’s attention – hi guys! Welcome to Monday!
This entire weekend was crazy busy, and it took up until today for it all to finally hit me. Saturday I had a bridal shower brunch, followed by an afternoon with family, followed by a dinner date with my boyfriend, followed by going out with my family and some friends. Sunday was filled with a coffee date with my brother’s girlfriend, the Super Bowl and watching a long-awaited episode of This Is Us. For someone who isn’t too emotional, I feel like I rode the biggest emotional rollercoaster of my life those two days, especially yesterday, being at an extreme high after Tom Brady’s loss, followed by an extreme low watching This Is Us. Add to this the copious amounts of Super Bowl snacks I ate, and the fact I didn’t get to bed until almost 1:00 in the morning, and wake up for work around 5:45/6:00; I am exhausted! I hate being busy on the weekends, but sometimes, it’s just what has to be done!
In regards to bridal showers and weddings, as I get older, I am really starting to appreciate and understand the significance of such events. It’s crazy to me to think that every single person that you love and appreciate will all be together under one roof at the exact same time. Now, I know what you’re thinking – *duh, isn’t that obvious?* – but really, it’s insane. Especially in regards to my family, we are dispersed all over the freakin’ country – whether its Arizona, Massachusetts, Florida, or North Carolina, you name the state, we’re probably there! So having my cousin’s bridal shower Saturday was an exciting prelude to her wedding in May, because it’s another excuse to see everyone again, all under the same roof!
Now, onto Sunday.
First and foremost, I want to acknowledge the fact that Super Bowl food is the best food. I swear anything you make on Super Bowl Sunday tastes different than it would if you made the same dish any other day of the year. Having all of my favorite foods in front of me in one shot – I might have been in my own personal heaven. However, it’s days like yesterday when I don’t have the greatest self control when it comes to unhealthy foods. Now, I don’t always eat the best, but it’s also not everyday what I eat chili and pizza and queso and dessert in one sitting. All I can say is that I am extremely thankful for baggy, boyfriend cut jeans because if I wore anything else to work today, it probably would not have fit or been extremely uncomfortable.
Secondly, if you watch This Is Us, chat with me in the comments about last night’s show. I don’t want to reveal any spoilers for the sake of eyes that haven’t watched the episode yet, but I am extremely overwhelmed and [shockingly] pleased with the way the “big episode” turned out. I laughed, I almost cried, I screamed in shock, I screamed in fear, and I finished the episode with a huge smile on my face. Did anyone else think this episode was done perfectly? I’d love to know what you think. Also, I love the fact that we are spoiled with having another episode tomorrow! Two in one week doesn’t even seem fair, but I’ll take it.
With that being said, how was everyone’s weekend? xoxo.
