It wouldn't be the Super Bowl without tears and empty calories....

Well, well, well...the Saints pulled it out! It was touch and go there for a while, but they came on strong in the 2nd half and got the job done. We were invited over to James and Allison's house for a New Orleans themed bash and it wasn't very clear who they were rooting for, but I think they were ok with the way the game turned out....

Bradley (because I can't keep up the charade of calling her Allison) made some crazy crawfish stuff that everyone loved (you guys know I don't eat this stuff...) and she really outdid herself with a homemade King Cake that was SO stinkin' good! And because she forgot the baby, she gets to do it again next year. :)

We had so much fun and we were all glued to the game. Lots of times I don't really care who is in the Super Bowl, but this year I was really interested in the game. I watched the entire game, National Anthem to final interview and I have a few observations...

  • Carrie Underwood....y'all, I LOVE her and I was so excited she was going to do the National Anthem. And then she walked on stage and I threw up a little bit in my mouth. What in the world was she wearing?? All white and those crazy white heels....it was brutal and so was her hair. And her last note...oh my word...we all cringed and were so happy when the stadium started cheering and yelling because it drowned her out. I was just really confused because she's normally A-MAZE-ING...clothes, voice everything. It was an off night for sure.
  • Commercials...so not funny. There was the one Doritos' commercial with the little boy telling off his mom's date and then, of course, the ETrade commercials were funny. Other than that, it was just lacking this year.
  • The Who at Halftime...BORING. We vote Beyonce or Justin Timberlake for 2011. As Ryan said, "I think josh Groban would have been more entertaining."
  • The Colts coach...my new all-time favorite! What a class act!!
  • And the best part of the night is that the entire room chipped in to help me "punch out" and stuff my 1,500 name tags for conference. LIFE SAVERS! The boys were thrilled! ha ha. It was like I was running a sweat shop...but with Miller Light and King Cake...

And then...my favorite part of the night....

It was at this point that my ovaries started burning....

What a fun party!! Hubs is from southeast TX and loves the whole cajun flair, but deep down we are Tennesseans and since Peyton played here we had to pull for him. I have to tell you Drew Brees with his baby boy was one of the most precious things I have ever seen!

Couldn't agree with all of your Super Bowl comments more! We were so sad to see our Colts lose, but were so happy for the Saints! Drew Brees and his son.... adorable!

Looks like a great SB party!

That pic of him holding his son in the air makes my ovaries hurt too and there is no way I will have any more children!
