A heartbreaker in Miami

>> Monday, February 8, 2010

Well, congratulations to the Saints! It was a great game, and even though it didn't end the way I would have liked, it's hard not to be glad for the Saints.

At the beginning, the Colts looked solid, but after halftime, it appeared that the Saints had figured out their game, and beat them fair and square. The on-side kick opening up the second half was brilliant (only because it worked though). Manning's interception, the offensive pass interference, and the Colts' inability to score a touchdown on 4 consecutive plays pretty much sealed the deal. But, as we are used to saying here in New England (or we WERE used to saying) - there's always next year! It was a good game, and the Saints came out on top. The Colts and their fans should at least be glad that they lost to a team of the Saints' caliber.

Our potluck party was a ton of fun. Everyone brought dips or some other kind of chip/snacky food, and instead of ordering pizza, we ended up making potato skins, which were delicious. For dips, we had onion dip, buffalo chicken dip, hummus, spinach and artichoke dip in a bread bowl, and this really yummy Mexican salad-like thing.

Before the game started, we played the game Things, which if you've never played it, you should give it a try - it's a ton of fun! I received it as a birthday present from a friend, and it's been our go-to party game for the past few get togethers, even trumping Apples to Apples.

Here's some pictures from the party.

It's always nice to have our friends over. One of the perks is that MK and I clean the house from top to bottom (well, maybe except for our bedroom) - vacuuming, straightening, putting things away. I'm not saying our place is wicked messy, but it's nice to have everything cleaned up and neat.

This is my cousin Kate and I, wearing our matching Peyton Manning jerseys!

Haha! I love apples to apples. Glad you had a good time with your friends even though the game didn't go your way :)
