If you know anything about me, you know I’m pretty much a dude at heart. I’d choose football on my television, beer in my belly, hoodie and comfy pants on and a fire in the fireplace to pretty much any given situation in life. I’ve been a lifelong Dallas Cowboys fan since my childhood. Born in Oklahoma, my mom raised me to love the Cowboys. She’d send me down the road to my uncle’s house (who was a Steelers fan at that time) to say “GO COWBOYS!”
Some girls dream of their wedding day when they’re little. I dreamt of going to the Super Bowl. I had photo books with cutouts of @emmittsmith22 newspaper articles instead of cutouts of dresses from magazines. I had posters of cowboys players not cute boys in junior high. This weekend I’m living my dream so prepare for photo overload. We are staying at the Fairmont and we are heading to the Phoenix Open tomorrow followed by the big game on Sunday. #dreambig #workhardplayhard #gohawks
Going to the Super Bowl? It’s been on my life’s to-do list for as long as I can remember. What I didn’t expect was the ability to make that dream a reality before my 35th birthday.
This year, after we paid our taxes and we paid for a vacation to Disney World for the girls, Michael and I decided to pull the trigger on this dream and just do it. If you know my husband, you know how creeky his wallet is, so it wasn’t an easy “yes” for him. We decided to head for Phoenix (where we grew up and where the Super Bowl 49 was being held) after our vacation.
IT WAS ONE OF THE BEST DAYS OF MY LIFE. Here is a little photo walk through of the day!
Here’s a video of the Patriots heading into the stadium. This has to be a real moment for these players, you know? It was so loud.
Here come’s the Seahawks:
Here’s opening kickoff:
Here’s a video I got of what it was like from our point of view. Sound is terrible, of course, but it was quite a show.
Here’s Belichick getting a Gatorade bath:
I will never forget this. After this game, Michael and I decided that each year our business grows, we’ll go back to the Super Bowl to celebrate. San Francisco next year, who’s coming with us? Let’s go, Cowboys!
