holiday qualifications.

the super bowl has always been a holiday to me.

why? because it meets all of my holiday qualifications ..

• it’s something I look forward to every year.

• I can spend the entire day drinking. and it’s completely acceptable. even encouraged.

• the food can only be described as delicious. or “worth the wait”.

• calories don’t count.

• meat, cheese, and tortilla chips become the only three food groups.

• I stop to think: “has there been a moment today I didn’t have food in my mouth?” then I answer, no.

• the dress code is comfortable.

• there is entertainment.

• and sitting on your couch is the only requirement.

what is not to love?

so clear your calendar of any engagements this sunday. and get to the grocery store before the velveeta cheese + rotel tomatoes are gone! this is serious business folks.

the next three days I will be sharing with you food & cocktail recipes to make the big game that much more enjoyable.

and on sunday, I’ll be live tweeting  during the game. mostly about commercials. but obviously, football too. and photographs of what I’m drinking & eating, because that’s important.

15 tips from the grammy’s.

1 // wear metallic, red, & velvet.

2 // if attention is what you seek, a hat is what you need. well done Pharrell.

3 // if you wake up with a facial blemish, rock a space helmet. Daft Punk brought it back. and made it cool.

4 // thank you speeches are overrated. silence is golden. [refer to above: Daft Punk].

5 // Sara Bareilles is my hero. she’s so inspirational. and her performance with Carole King was amazing. goose bump worthy.

6 // also goose bump worthy: Imagine Dragons & Kendrick Lamar. they had signed up for a color run but then found out the Grammy’s were on the same day. So they brought the color dust to their performance. It worked.

7 // Madonna wore a grill, on her teeth and wasn’t seen without a cane. I couldn’t stop thinking “pimp” & singing “call me George Foreman cuz I’m selling everybody grillz”. thank you Nelly.

8 // Lorde was the big winner. and she deserves it. but lady stand tall. #NoSlouchNecessary.

9 // John Legend is the narrator of my dreams.

10 // Pink’s circus-inspired performance was amazing. and she was so graceful hanging from the ceiling. but I couldn’t help but think ..does she have a live-in bikini waxer?

11 // Ringo Starr & Paul McCartney sang together. it made my heart smile. wish they would’ve belted out a beatles tune.

12 // Yoko Ono had too much spotlight. I’m salty towards her. she broke up the beatles.

13 // Yoko Ono’s dance moves make Taylor Swift’s look genius. #dancingpeacesigns.

14 // Jay Z and Beyoncé performed together. then america awed in unison.

15 // until Macklemore & Ryan Lewis sang “Same Love,” and 33 couples were married by Queen Latifah. beautiful.
