Thoughts While Watching The Super Bowl:
Pink is flawless.
Heh. I ordered a Philly. Didn’t even mean to.
Tom Brady looks like a middle schooler with that haircut.
Do the helmets normally come off that easily?
*sharp inhale* Almost!
Why does JT look like some hipster from San Souci?
This wine is delicious.
Senorita, I feel for you. (Feel for youuuuuu.)
Wait. That was the quarterback who caught that? Cool!
I ate, I drank, I laughed with friends. All in all, a solid Sunday regardless of whoever won the Big Game. But now we’re back on that Monday grind and need to enjoy a big ol’ salad to celebrate the last of winter citrus and the end of Buffalo Chicken Dip/Football season.
