Hey guys! Having a happy Sunday?
Doing anything fun for Super Bowl? Chris, his brother (our house-guest….who apparently will be staying for at least another week), and I are going to head over to one of my friends’ houses for a little get together thing. To me its really about the socialization & the food! I really don’t care about the game and even Chris doesn’t have any ties to either team this year so no one around my house is really passionate about the game.
Meanwhile, I’ve been a music downloading machine lately! I don’t even know why, but I’ve just been on it! So I’ve got a little bit longer edition of my ipod downloads today to share! Enjoy!

Usually I’m always downloading fast-paced songs for running (I used to only use my ipod when running, so that’s all I cared about) But now I’ve started downloading a wider variety of songs. You may also notice that many of the songs from this week were on the 69 cent sale on itunes (“Love” songs are on sale for V-Day). If you haven’t yet – you gotta get on that!
This morning I woke up to some actually reasonable temperatures (I think it was 50-something….you know, instead of 15 degrees!) The boys were still sleeping, so I decided to slip into my running clothes & head out the door. When I got back from running I picked up Rocky and went walking around the neighborhood (Rocky is incredibly lazy. He loves walks, but he wants NOTHING to do with my runs – he doesn’t like to be rushed). When I got back I had a giant bowl of oatmeal with 1/2 banana, chia seeds, and a drizzle of agave nectar.
It felt good. I think the cold has had me in a funk. That, plus the fact that I haven’t been doing running for cardio lately (I’ve been mixing in biking, some workout DVDs, and just more “indoor” type activities since it’s been so cold). It’s made me forget that running really helps to keep me SANE and GROUNDED! I need it. I can’t continue to neglect it. Thankfully, it looks like its starting to warm up a little around here!
For today’s Super Bowl party, us girls have been discussing what we’re all going to bring (so there aren’t duplicates, etc.) Sounds like it’s going to be great! One girl is making chili, another is making meatballs in a crockpot and bringing fresh guac (MY LOVE!), and I’m bringing potato skins & queso.
I feel like I’ve been having too much cheese lately so I’m going to try to stay away from the queso. Shouldn’t be hard – since that guacamole is there I’m sure I’ll spend most of my time posted up next to the guac bowl
Do you have any traditional Super Bowl foods you make every year?
Are you “celebrating” Super Bowl Sunday? If not – what are you up to?
I’m spending all morning working on some school stuff. Fun-fun!
