Oh you guys. I honestly don’t even know what to say about this weekend. While most of the weekend was just routine, yesterday was absolutely amazing. If you live under a rock and don’t know, my Seahawks are going to the Super Bowl. I am just….speechless. It’s been 10 years since a team has had back to back trips to the Super Bowl. We’re playing the Patriots, so it’s going to be a good game.
But onto the weekend.
On Friday, this little sweet tart and I had a park date. It was in the 50s! We had such weird weather this weekend, from sun and warmth, to cold and sideways rain. But on this day, we enjoyed the warm weather and had some play time before daddy got home from work. And she insisted on wearing her cowboy boots.
We did some grocery shopping and got stocked up for the next 2 weeks.
On Saturday I met a friend for coffee to chat about essential oils (if you missed my post from Friday on essential oils for weight loss be sure to check it out), then came home and started our next organizing project: the office. And when I say “started,” I mean we worked, both of us, for 2 hours and still aren’t done. I think we could spend another 2 or so hours and maybe be close. I will share before and after photos of all our projects with you over the next month or so.
Then after nap Little A and I did some sticker art. She was so proud of her glitter sticker card. She couldn’t wait to show Grandpa Rick (my dad).
We also went to a baby shower for one of Huebie’s co-workers. Little A had a great time playing with some other little girls. Sorry, no photos. #badblogger
And then Sunday.
The day started out a bit rough. Huebie got up at 4:30 to head to the stadium, and was there before 6:00 AM to secure our tailgating spot. What a trooper! My dad came over around 8:00 to watch Little A, and I took off to the light rail station to take the rail in. Oh my LORD was it packed. I was sweating and it was crowded and just….ew. Needless to say, I’ll never do that again. But I got to our tailgate just in time for it to start pouring. Phew!
I also got the opportunity to meet this pretty lady. Jenny blogs over at Our Busy Little Life and her family are huge Hawks fans too! They live in Montana and made the trek over for the game. It was so great to meet her and just visit for a bit. She is just the sweetest and even though it was a quick visit, it’s always fun to meet bloggers in real life.
And then the game. I don’t even have words. It started off rough and let’s be honest, most of the game was not so great, until the 4th quarter. We scored a touchdown, did an onside kick and recovered, then scored another touchdown and got a 2 point conversion! All in the last 4 minutes of the game! After the first 4th quarter touchdown I was pretty excited. But then after the second touchdown I was shaking. It was INSANE in the stadium! Green Bay came back to tie and we went into OT where we won the coin toss and scored a touchdown. Game over and we’re going to Super Bowl 49!!!!!
I remember at one point during the 4th quarter looking up at God and saying “Thank you.” It was just…..amazing. We were at last year’s NFC Championship game but this year was different. I cried. Oh yes. I cried. I’ve been a Seahawks fan my whole life and having them go to the Super Bowl two years in a row is amazing. I am so proud to be a Hawks fan. I just love my team.
Luckily we already had our flights booked for the big game. We’re flying to San Diego and driving over to Phoenix. Flights direct to Phoenix are insane right now so I’m glad we planned ahead. Now, finding tickets is going to be the challenge. We weren’t drawn in the lottery so fingers crossed we are able to find tickets for a semi-reasonable price. So far the cheapest I’m seeing are over $2000……… #nothankyou.
How was everyone else’s weekend?!
