#41 Host a Super Bowl party
to include some more American things to do...one of which was host a Super Bowl party! I hate Comcast so in an act of definance, the cable was cancelled a few years ago...because you know loosing my business is really going to make an impact on them. FYI life without cable TV has been pretty awesome(thanks to Hulu and Netflix). So to solve the lack of cable problem, we ended up borrowing an antenna from
so that we could actually watch the game/commercials.
TV!! In our apartment!! Good start to any Super Bowl party
American napkins obvi
Lindsey and I picked up some delish food at Whole Foods for the party: veggies and dip, BBQ chicken wings and chicken BBQ pizza...easiest party food prep ever since everything was pre-made and we just had to chop the veggies. Lindsey also got her baking on last night so we had some chocolate chip cookies for the group.
Now something about the awesome group of friends that came over: we all love to eat and we never EVER go hungry...we essentially always seem to have enough food to feed at least double the amount of people than are actually there. And excess food = leftovers!! Gotta love it when you know you won't really have to cook much that week. Bonnie, Rebecca and Nikole did not disappoint...check out the food table...
The hosts - like my giant pimp cup?

...umm yea it was a lot...a lot of awesomeness! But seriously, when we finished the evening it hurt to breathe because I ate too much. Luckily I stuck to water in my pimp cup instead of beer/wine or I think I would be moaning in pain right now. I have no self control when faced with such delectable food. I was so busy eating and talking that I for the most part ignored the boys when they very diligently announced 'Commercials!' to us non-football watchers...any commercials I should be YouTube-ing?

First Super Bowl party was a success! Checking another item off the list is the great way to finish off the weekend.
