Super Bowl 50

We live near Levi Stadium and there is a lot of hype about this big event. It’s kind of strange to listen and to wait and to watch and to anticipate what is going to happen.

Everyone is talking about it.  Some people were talking about renting out their homes for thousands of dollars.  A ticket sold on Stub Hub for $28,000 tonight!! And then a lady from Milpitas won two tickets to the game in a local raffle.

There is talk about road closures and a million more people in this crowded valley over the weekend.

Some friends have travelled up to the city for the NFL Experience and Super Bowl City. Some are even braving the commute this weekend to party like rock stars at the free One Republic concert, planning different means of transportation including Uber, and BART. 

I think we’ll pretend there’s a blizzard and shop now for our chips and dip and hide indoors and watch from inside. Maybe we’ll open our windows and hear Lady Gaga’s half time show or maybe even the fireworks.

What about you? Are you thinking about the Super Bowl? 

Good night and may the best team win!!

Being Home

Tonight we went to see the construction progress on the San Francisco 49ers football stadium.


Last time we saw the field, they had just begun excavations. It’s amazing what they can build in a year’s time! The stadium is near our home and driving by in our new minivan and going to Chick-Fil-A for dinner tonight was the entertainment for the evening. We sat outside on the patio, enjoying the gorgeous, California weather. I appreciated not having to cook tonight, and more importantly, not having to do the dishes. It’s the little things that make me happy!

Home sweet home.
