How did you prepare for the big game?
I was decked out in my 49ers gear. I opted not to don my gold Converse sneakers and stuck with my black Nikes instead. Besides, they went with the another Nike item I was wearing...
Nike #7 Colin Kaepernick Jersey
Let's face it, if I had bought a white jersey, I probably would've emerged from the Super Bowl party with something on it that would NEVER come out. Mustard. Ketchup. Red wine. Baby vomit (the hosts have a new tiny tot!). Even though I would look super awesome in a white jersey if I had an amazing tan, I'm not likely to be wearing this during the summer season when they aren't playing football, so I wisely chose red. Regardless of the fact that I'm practically porcelain at this point, I was looking sharp in my new jersey.
I was supposed to go to one of the games with a friend of mine, but I wasn't feeling well that day, so I passed. Even though I missed out, he still made sure to bring me the scarf they were handing out at the game. I didn't even go and I still got a souvenir! Since I'm pretty much always cold, I brought it with me to the party to keep me warm, but it was such a beautiful day, that I didn't really need it. I did get some wear out of it when I went to the grocery store in the morning to get supplies for my appetizer though!
Festive Niners Nails
I bought these from Sephora a while back and have been waiting for the perfect time to use them. Super Bowl Sunday was the perfect day! I suppose Valentine's Day would have been appropriate too, but since I don't have a man this time of year, I wore the red bubbles in honor of the 49ers instead. They weren't exactly what I was hoping for in a nail product because they were more of a sticker and less of an actual polish. I was expecting something of the Sally Hansen variety, but these fell a little short. I peeled them off as soon as I got home, but somehow they managed to make it through the entire game and while I played with the kids.
Overall, I was disappointed that the 49ers lost, but it was still fun to watch the game with good friends, critique the commercials, and sing along with Beyonce and the very brief Destiny's Child reunion.
