Happy Super-Dance-Bowl 2011

I put an interesting twitter poll up today after seeing some interesting responses to a question I asked on my Facebook page (which just passed 400 Likes – yay!).

The poll asked: who are you pulling for today?

  • Packers
  • Steelers
  • Commercials
  • Glee

Most people said Glee! Yes! Nice guys. I love it!

So, did most of you have a fabulous super bowl party? I hope you did.

I ended up participating in a Super-Dance-Bowl Party instead. Details in a minute.

First some randomness. I think I found a sliced almond in my tea leaves today. Can you make tea with almonds? I think this needs some research and a potential cooking experiment. šŸ˜‰

Bailey was really working it today.

I guess he really wanted me to take some pictures to share with you all. šŸ™‚

I spent most of my afternoon blogging and baking – two of my favorite things!

I heart baking.

After finishing my sweets, I packed them up and headed to Erica and Toya’s house for a Super-Dance-Bowl party.

So what is a Super-Dance-Bowl party you may ask? Well, like most parties we have snacks…

…and apps, like this tasty homemade cheese ball.

But we also have dancing.

Lots of dancing. šŸ™‚

Oh yea!

Erica made a fabulous turkey chili for dinner.

I especially liked how the chili was served over spaghetti noodles! I learned this was “Cincinnati chili” on Diners, Drive Ins, and Dives. šŸ˜‰ Though it looked tasty on the triple-D, I never thought to make it at home. I may have to have all my chili this way now, though. It was awesome! The flavor was great and I loved the melty cheese on top. Corn muffins were a must-have side. Yum!

Dessert.

Game snacks = caramels and tater tots.

Games = Cranium and Apples to Apples.

Our Elvis character wanted to go for a quick swim in some champagne.

Check out Megan’s play dough sculpture…nice!

Check out my winning Apples to Apples hand. The key word was “Boring” and I threw the red card down for “Watching Football.” What do you expect from a group of girls who would rather dance and play board games than watch football? lol šŸ˜‰

I learned tonight that I’m pretty terrible at Apples to Apples. Have you played it? I also learned that I really like it. Hubby and I have been saying for awhile that we want to start having “game night” and inviting friends over…maybe we’ll start by buying Apples to Apples? We’ll definitely have to play Pictionary because that is my favorite!

How did you spend your Superbowl Sunday? And of the 4 options on the poll above, who were you pulling for??

  1. It looks like you had a very fun and wellness-filled Super Bowl! The adds were not as good as they normally are (in my opinion), so I was anxiously waiting for Glee to start:)

  2. I was going for GLEE! I DVR it along with the next two shows after it so I wouldn’t miss anything. Glad I did because the Bowl went long. Your party looks amazing and I am with Megan, you should start having game nights. When I lived in Florida at one of my jobs we would do weekly game nights and had a BLAST!!! I love Apples to Apples, we played it with parents last time we went home and are still talking about it months later.

  3. What kind of tea was that? The colors are so pretty. Drinking tea with an infuser makes me feel so lady-like šŸ™‚ Do you think that was sliced ginger instead of an almond? I have one tea that has actual rosebuds in it. SOO GOOD. Looks like you had a fun Super Bowl Sunday!

  4. What a fun way to spend super bowl Sunday! But I am a big sports fan so would have had the game on in the background…which may have conflicted with the dancing music. šŸ™‚
