This past weekend was full of celebrations. First off, I guess you may have heard, but we WON the Superbowl! What an amazing and stressful game. Being right here in the city definitely made for an exciting night, and folks are still celebrating. Rob and I stopped over at a friend's house who was hosting a Superbowl party, and we then ended up at the neighborhood bar to watch the majority of the game before heading home. Thanks again to Betsy for throwing together an incredible bash!
It's a shame she didn't have any food for us to eat.....yummy, yummy!
Weight Watchers, what? Speaking of that, I did have my weigh-in today, and I was up .2 lbs. I realize that's really nothing (I hope you saw the decimal point in front of the 2), but it's still up! I need to bring it strong this week. Ok, moving on to our Superbowl victory!
Purple jello shots anyone? A celebration on a Sunday with work the next day, I stayed clear of these!
The game ended and everyone come out of their houses into the streets screaming, cheering, dancing, fireworks going off, and honking horns. I usually mind the city noise on certain nights, but who could complain about something like this. It was a welcoming noise. Here is a shot of what most neighborhoods looked like. A few happy B'more fans!
The night before the big game, Rob and I enjoyed a birthday dinner with some good friends here in the neighborhood. A 50th birthday party celebration in Little Italy! Let me just say that the lobster ravioli was unbelievable. I know we'll be heading back there soon, or at least I hope. It was a surprise party for Tim, thrown by his sweet wife, Pattie. Thanks again for including us!
Chocolate and peanut butter cake. Ya, Rob was pretty much in heaven when this was revealed. I was also thrilled to see these two couples. Friends from the neighborhood who have recently moved, and that we miss dearly!
I hope the birthday boy enjoyed his celebration. We had a wonderful time. Happy Birthday, Tim!
What a great weekend. I hope y'all are having a great week. I'm now off to catch up on some blogs and then hitting the sack. I have a 5:45 AM spin class tomorrow.....can you say pure hell?!
