Welcome to our journey to share our goals and our accomplishments and our disappointments and frustrations.
Together we can do this!
So friends how did you do this week? Did you have a good week? I was down 2 pounds – I’ll take that any week. Little pounds add up to big pounds and slow wins the race here. I type this watching the Super Bowl and I can tell you a couple of things. First – Way to go BRONCOS! I’m so excited that they won – it was a great game. Half time wasn’t that bad – I was okay with that. I’ve seen better and I’ve seen worse. The commercials – my favorite was the singing goats. Hilarious. And what better way to end the weekend – I’m sick. The hub unit came down with something on Friday night and I think he shared – bad husband. Chills – cold then hot – sometimes both. Sweats – runny nose – sneezy. Yuck and muck. So with 2 pounds being gone last week – 🙂 I’m happy
So how did YOU do my friends?

Before we go ahead with *the* Super Bowl, let’s talk about the Puppy Bowl. What a game! Awesome half time with Keyboard Kitty. Awesome penguin cheerleaders. BOTH teams came to play – snorts – unlike *the* Super Bowl. And I loved the part where it showed the forever homes for the previous game players. Excellent Puppy Bowl X.
Now about the Super Bowl. The Super Bowl last night was the Seahawks vs Broncos. Let’s not talk about the game. Puts my little piggy head down in disgust. I was rooting for the Broncos. It’s like they didn’t even show up!
Since the game was over before it started – snorts, I concentrated on the commercials and the half time show. Let’s talk about the half time show first. It rocked. I love me some Bruno Mars. The Red Hot Chili Peppers not so much. Maybe it was the one song they played – shrugs pig shoulders – not sure. But Bruno kicked it – literally. That guy has some foot movement! It was great – probably one of the best I’ve seen in my 2.5 years – snorts.
Now, the commercials. There were lots of commercials to review. Some I absolutely loved and some I hated with a piggy passion. My top were (in no particular order):
Ellen Degeneres playing Little Red Riding Hood. Did you see the piggies in the commercial? Squeal! You just know when she gets to condo with the bears they are going to huff and puff and blow her down – oops wrong Fairy Tale – snorts.
Then Pappa Bear says, “Play it” and they all break out dancing. That was a hoot. We all laughed at this one at the Hotel Thompson.
Then there was the Audi commercial about ‘no compromises’ where two people are at the adoption agency. One wants a Doberman and the other wants a Chihuahua thus they compromise on a mixture of the two. Thus you get the Doberhuaha.
I have to admit that we laughed at the Doberhuaha. It reminded me of Scrappy from Scooby Doo. You see it now? Snorts.
The VW commercial. OMP (oh my pig). Snorts. It’s hard for me to even type this because I’m snorting so hard. VW turns 100,000 miles and when it does the people that make the cars get their ‘wings’. That’s what the dad tells his daughter in the car. The daughter is like yeah right and says, “And I guess at 200,000 miles they fart the rainbow?” AND it starts to show them farting rainbows. Okay maybe I don’t have it verbatim but it was hilarious! I looked at daddy and said, “How much mileage you got old man?” Snorts
My favorite commercial the entire night at the Hotel Thompson was for the new Butterfinger Peanut Butter cups – which might I add are AWESOME! Peanut butter and Chocolate are in therapy and Butterfinger shows up to the couch.
This commercial is freaking hilarious. You have to watch it – it’s so funny. And the new Butterfinger Peanut Butter cups – thud – mom/dad down. They tried one and they LOVE IT. Mom gave me a small taste and I do mean small. It’s like a peanut butter cup BUT the filling is butterfinger. It’s the perfect combination.
So what was your favorite commercial from last night? Thoughts on those or the game of the Puppy Bowl?

First off, let’s talk about the most important bowl game today – Puppy Bowl X. The show starts promptly at 3PM on the Animal Planet. If you’ve never seen the Puppy Bowl, you really need to watch it today. It is totally awesome and keeps me busy cheering for hours. Daddy has his game later today (which I’ll tell you about in a minute) and I have my game with the Puppy Bowl.
And don’t think that the Puppy Bowl is just about a lot of puppies on the screen doing nothing. There’s actually a referee, puppy touchdowns, penalties, timeouts and substitutions. That’s right – it’s a Puppy Bowl to see!
The rules are easy. Puppies go on the field and when a puppy drags one of the football shaped toys into the end zone, a puppy touchdown is declared. If a puppy has an accident on the field by ‘going to the bathroom’, a penalty is called. If the water bowls need to be refilled or puppies get into a fight, timeouts are called. And, you know what they call it when the puppies get into squabbles? Unnecessary rrruuufffness. Snorts. And if the puppies fall asleep, substitutions are sent in to play.
Over the years, they’ve had different ‘cheerleaders’. These little cute hedgehogs holding pom-poms were a huge hit last year. I’m kind of hoping they make a comeback this year. Aren’t they just adorably cute?! In the past, they’ve also had bunny cheerleaders, chicken cheerleaders and my favorite in 2012 was the Piggy Pep Squad. Personally, I think they need to bring the Piggy Pep Squad back. I would *so* want to try out for the team. I think I have what it takes. I have the look. I have the chemistry. I have the personality. I can dance.
And you can’t miss the Kitty half time show! It’s going to be a blast for sure!
But if the Puppy Bowl doesn’t it do it for you, you can always wait for dad’s game later today at 6:30PM. THE Super Bowl. Two really good teams will be going head to head – Seattle Seahawks vs Denver Broncos.
Do you have a favorite team? I think mom/dad are leaning towards the Denver Broncos. They like the quarterback from the Broncos – Peyton Manning. Go Broncos!
And don’t forget the half time show on the Super Bowl either. This year they are going to have Bruno Mars and the Red Hot Chili Peppers performing.
And the other thing about the Super Bowl, you *have* to watch the commercials. They are usually the most hilarious commercials to remember for the night. So my friends, get your snacks and drinks ready. Go to the potty early so you can enjoy all of the fun today. Get comfy on the couch. I’m going to be watching the shows all day long. And hopefully, mom will pop me some popcorn.
Are you ready for some football!?
