super bowl sunday.

Yes, I just did a post talking about the meatballs Trevor made for the super bowl party we went to, but I didn't get around to do doing a post about the party itself. I feel like because the super bowl will always be on my birthday weekend, if not my birthday, Trevor will always try to make the super bowl parties him and his friends do every year also count as my birthday party, haha. It has been this way ever since we started dating. Trevor threw a birthday party for me (which was also a super bowl party...haha).

A picture of me on my 20th Birthday, at the Super Bowl/Birthday Party Trevor threw for me :)
When I pointed out to Trevor that I think his Super Bowl Parties and adding a cake to them, then calling it my birthday party seems like a cop out. He rebutted with, "Well do you really think you could get that many people to come to an actual birthday party for you?!" haha, he was joking of course :) ....right? Anyways, on our way to the Super Bowl party Trevor told me that he had $5 for me to bet on the game if I wanted. I asked him why would we gamble money on something like football stats when we don't know much about about football. Apparently Trevor and his friends wanted to make the game more interesting and exciting for them, and I was not happy that he was wasting our money on something stupid like a bet. I had decided I wasn't going to participate, but when I got there everyone was doing it (peer pressure right? haha) So I decided to join in and throw away $5 to make the game a little more exciting. They split it it into two different pools, one for the score and some stats for the first half, and then the final score who would win, and some stats for the second half. Well I won BOTH pots! HA! The girl giving Trevor a hard time about gambling, and wasting money, and I won all of it. I guess watching my brother's football games throughout high school and college paid off :)

Do you think we ate enough food? This was just part of it...
Trevor surprised me with Daisey candles, my favorite flower :)
 
Trevor had to lay down because he ate too much, hehe :)

P.S. Here are some interesting facts about the super bowl commercials that pertain to Utahans, and any Mormons reading this.
Mini Cooper Commercial:
Kirby Heyborne (Elder Calhoun from best two years) You know you know who Kirby is right? He has been in almost every Mormon movie out there, haha.

  10. How come there is no picture of the birthday girl at the Superbowl party? I think you should add one. I liked the Dorito's licking the finger commercial and the little kid Dark Vader one. Those were my favorites.

    My husband and I both laughed when we saw the guy from Best Two Years in a beer commercial as well!
