It was a fun weekend to kick off February! Friday night, Matthew and I attended the Lake Erie Monsters hockey game with some other fine blogger folks, such as My Managed Chaos, Ka-Ka-Ka-Katy, and Being Mom2Amara. We got to hang out in one of the suites, which provided a great view of all the icy action.
We also got a tour of all the fun things the Monsters offer before the game, from puck shots to photo ops to hair and face painting to charity raffles.
We also got a personal visit from Sully, the Monsters’ mascot, and his “wingman” up in our suite.
Although the Monsters lost the game, it was still a fun evening! The Monsters provide an affordable and fun-for-the-whole-family way to take in a sporting event, with ticket prices starting at $10. Check out the schedule for upcoming games and promotions!
On Sunday, we headed over to Lane and Nathan’s house for a Super Bowl party. I made bacon and cheese dip (recipe) and s’mores bars (recipe) as my party contributions, because what’s a Super Bowl without bacon and sweets?!
We paid more attention to the halftime show and commercials than to the game, of course. I thought Bruno Mars did a great job, although I found the combination with the Red Hot Chili Peppers a little odd.
The commercial that had everyone laughing was Audi’s ad. I’m still not totally sure what it has to do with Audis, but it was memorable!
And of course I loved the Budweiser #bestbuds spot, which had me in tears when I saw the preview of it!
How was your weekend? Did you watch the big game? What commercials did you love?
