Whether you are a big football fan or not, most of us know of Russel Wilson. He is the star QB for the Seattle Seahawks...who happen to be having a pretty good year! And a lot of talk is about Wilson the QB.
Now, there is even more talk of Wilson...and it has more to do with Texas. Like the Texas Rangers. ( side note, seattle seahawks - football, Texas Rangers - Baseball ).
So you see why its interesting now!
THe football season isn't done yet!! But who knows how his season will play out...either one! Even if his baseball career doesn't pan out for him...he still has his day job!
I am just gonna say it. The Kardashians make me want to barf. I am so done with hearing about them and frankly, I have never ever bothered to keep up with them. And their "Holiday cards" they do every year? Whatever.
But I will have to say that not only DID I look at Kelly Clarksons holiday card....I liked it!
Its not over the top look how great I am and your not kind of card. Its funny! Its cute. Its real!
Here is the link to check it out yourself!
A lot of married women will lump their husbands in with the kids when talking about their homes being crazy.
Seems like maybe the First Lady isn't any different!
I just read a story on how First Lady Michelle ended up switching seats with Obama during the Mandela ceremony....because he was talking and taking Selfies with the Danish PM. From a series of pictures taken of the people, you can see Obama talking and laughing with the female PM and then he and another person lean in for the 3 of them to take a selfie...just having some fun.
Michelle must not have felt it the right time to be having that kind of fun, as in the remaining pictures she has switched seats with Obama and he is now having to pay attention to the ceremony instead.
Yep. Sometimes your husbands act just like the kids do!! Even when they are the President.
My girls were just part of the church's kids christmas pagent, one was an Angel and the other a Superhero ( part of the story - a non traditional way at it!). And the whole thing was fun and cute and the basic message was the same, the birth of Jesus.
So naturally a story on kids pagents caught my eye this morning. About having to wear helmets. Yep.
In wales, an 8 year old Mary who would ride a donkey during the pagent ( ok, so probably sit on one!) was told that she would have to wear a helmet to be on the donkey in order for the animal to be a part of it. The animal owner said his insurance company demands it...everytime.
The organizers said they would be able to hide the helmet under the costume...but that they would note that its definately a long way from the original ride that mary took!
Yes, its cold and its been super cold! But still, we are lucky we are just cold. That cold wave managed to produce some serious ice storms over the country that caused some serious collisions...like 20 and 30 car pile ups!
AT least we just need to bundle up...and wear hats!
Like this one!
You remember trying out the different tongue twisters as a kid? The whole sally sells seashells down by the seashore? Yeah...its not like that anymore
Researchers at MIT have come up with what they claim to be the hardest tongue twister ever.
They say that this phrase - "pad kid poured curd pulled cod" is the hardest. its easy to say in your head, but try saying it out loud 10 times - FAST! I will pass. I have enough trouble with regular words!!
I hadn't really thought about it until today when I saw an article on the different ways to Top off your Christmas tree.
Stars are probably the most common according to the article. Lit ones, paper ones, wooden ones, bursting ones.
Angels are after that.
Then it also noted that ribbons and bows are big....and even nests with eggs in it.
Growing up, our tree always had this funky looking thing on the top that I think was given to my mom and dad when they got married...or something like that. It was...odd. Like a big ornament almost. But that was our tree top.
I know that we recieved an Angel for our tree as a wedding gift ( married in November, so it makes more sense!) But as the angel was and is far too large for our tree....she is still in the box she came in.
But we do have an angel on our tree top. She isn't fancy, she isn't shiney or plugged in. In fact, I am not sure now just how I got her. But for the past 11 years, she has sat on the top of our tree...and will do so for many more years to come!
Nothing about the Big Game is cheap. We know that. But this years...well they are already saying that its going to be really not cheap this year!
Tickets will be almost double the cost of previous years. They say they want to make the value of the ticket more equal to the value of the experience.....ok.
Usually tickets sell for around $1,250 a ticket...for the good seats. This year, those tickets are around $2,600 for those seats.
That better be some experience you get!!
Otherwise, those home parties to celebrate the big game are looking a lot better!
No, this doesn't mean that Nutella is now a green light food. No its not really a replacement for peanut butter and no, shouldn't really see the light of day for breakfast foods.
But....it is good!
So good in fact, that mario batelli is opening one of his Eataly places in Chicago and will be including a Nutella stall. Basically you can go up to it and get Nutella on a piece of toast or a crepe.
So far, no talk of just getting a spoonful to eat straight, but there is still time to adjust the menu! :)
Makes me think too that perhaps a trip to chicago will be on my list soon too!!!
