Super Super Bowl

All I really have to say about the big game is “Beyonce” and you all should just nod your head and know what that all encompasses. However I would like to divulge my thoughts on what that word means to me after last night’s half time show(I could care less about the game because the Packers weren’t in it and no one really cute plays).

I have been waiting for Beyonce’s performance.  I was teetering between insanity and giddiness every time she instagrammed a photo of their practices, or her song came on the radio, for the past 3-ish months.  Lord have mercay she did not disappoint!

She looked stunning of course.  Everything from her cute knee high socks which are completely on trend right now to her fearless fake hair head banging moment, was PURR-FECT-OH(I capitalize that in order to emphasize that I am screaming in real life as I type this).

Take note that I watched this with four guys and one girl. And the latter is someone who doesn’t even know the extent of the pop culture that the rest of us teeny-boppers grew up with.  (Backstreet Boys who? she asks….I know…I’m still friends with her though, that’s how great she is)  So when Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams LITERALLY popped onto the stage, I went all crazy lady on everyone.  My hands flew up, I screamed loud enough for them to make sure they heard my approval in New Orleans, and I chanted “They’re back, they’re back, it’s them, they’re back!”  Not one person in the room knew what I was talking about.  It looked a little something like this.

gif confused ryan reynoldsAfter everyone caught on, they finally understood what this all meant.  So many questions I had.  Are the girls back together?  Does this mean a reunion tour?  Did Michelle lose weight? Why would Kelly lie to us all about performing with B? Does Kelly keep more secrets from us fans?

I can’t predict the future but I sure do hope this means we will be seeing more of Destiny’s Child as a whole.  I’m starting to feel old when I have to break out their albums from my CD “collection”-the bottom of some box in the basement with no cases left on them.  It’s about time they came out with an album that I can put directly onto my i-Pod from iTunes.

B finished out strong sans Kelly and Michelle and showed up all the past half time shows.  I mean, thanks to Janet’s little mis-hap, we were deprived for quite some time of current and relevant performers.  Tom Petty: Cool but not that interesting.  I’ll stick to keeping him on my i-Pod.  The Who: Who?   Black Eyed Peas: I hope the person who booked their autotuned-asses got fired.  (pardon my french, but maybe they should focus on vocal skills and skim down on the costume fitting).

Anywho, B killed it and proved once again that no matter what she is doing, she is spectacular and knows how to entertain America.  There’s a reason her and Hova are Bonnie and Clyde, King and Queen and America’s royalty.—Sorry Kim K…..B will not call you America’s princess let alone let you hold her precious baby.  You are not worthy.

Who won the super bowl you ask?

Procrastination Station

Oh how I procrastinate! Let me count the ways:

1. Facebook(duh)

2. Pinterest

3. Painting my nails.

4. Playing with the kitten

5. Napping

6. Cooking

7. Blogging

8. Reading other blogs

9. Writing my Christmas list

10. Figuring out Adam’s present

It is currently hell week and I am going cuh-rayzay trying to get everything done(do professors know they all assign 93749023431 projects at once?!).  Pretty sure Toulouse hasn’t been able to find me this entire weekend because I am buried under a pile of papers and books and my computer.  However I am also spending an equal amount of time procrastinating.  And I am VERY good at it.

Hope all of you are surviving your exams.

Sunday Funday: Milwaukee Public Market

I had the chance to get back home to Port Washington this past weekend for a bit.  Adam and I went to church, brunch and the market with my parents and got to also see my brother and beautiful sister-in-law Kristen!

We went to Ian and Kristen’s church which they also got married in March 2011, in Milwaukee.  It’s such a gorgeous and simple church and Adam and I have actually been thinking of getting married there.  It was great to experience a service there.

We also all ate at  Benelux which was unbelievably delicious for brunch.  I’ve been there before, for dinner(which also did not disappoint) but brunch was so awesome that I forgot to take a picture of anything.  Oops.  Anyway, it is in the third ward and it was crazy busy because it was a Sunday afternoon.  P.s.-Their bloody mary was phenomenal as well!

Then we hit up Milwaukee Public Market because my mom had never been there.  It is your typical market with seafood, pastries, and sandwiches every where you turn plus lots of other random stores.  Always a new thing to find there though.

We found a “slab-o-bacon.”  Adam thought this was only possible in his dreams!  He was so excited and if this wasn’t so expensive, I would consider buying it as a joke for his birthday.

Mom was equally excited about buying olive oil.  Apparently this is some special kind of olive oil because those prices were JACKED!  I steered clear of that area and I think I will stick with my Great Value EVOO.  (Isn’t she a doll though?)


Kiepert was looking at my dad who was taking a picture of a picture being taken.  He’s a weirdo(by “he” I mean both Adam and my dad).  Also: Aren’t just the cutest in h&m sweaters(eye roll).  We can’t help but wear the same thing as each other every day.

Has Mr. Kiepert been hiding a secret talent from me?

It was back to the real world after this adventure but I loved spending some quality time with at least a miniature part of my family.  I love ’em just a little.
