This is a big weekend even if you’re not a die-hard football fan. There’s no escaping all the lead-up hype to the Superbowl XLVII game this coming weekend. We’ve been watching the excitement on the news with Times Square being all transformed for the ultimate fan experience! We’ve also started seeing teaser ads from companies like Coca-Cola! Love all of it!
Superbowl weekend also means an opportunity to throw a party. Yeah… chili, wings, nachos and all sorts of stuff that is soooo bad but soooo good! Don’t worry, I know you’ve been good since New Year’s day. Heh.
