Happy Birthday To Me!

January 22, 2007

The best birthday present I could have received would have been a trip to the Superbowl XLI! And I got it! Okay, so I’m not actually going to the Superbowl, but my Bears are on their way to Miami.

It was cold, with wind whipping of the lake (it just had to be) and the snow coming down. This is how football was meant to be played. The game ended up as a blowout but early in the second half that was not the case. The best part of the game was that Rex Grossman was able to overcome a slow first half and move the team down the field for a touchdown. It was a pivotal time where the Bears needed to maintain momentum, Grossman needed to get going offensively, and the defense needed a break. It was a great team win. The only thing missing was Hester returning a kick for a touchdown.

It was a perfect afternoon. I got to lounge around, open presents, watch the games and knit. My husband made me a delicious dinner and cake. It snowed. The Bears won. Now if only I didn’t have to go to work tomorrow!

About Me

Welcome to my spot on the web where I talk about needlework, crafts, and [many] other random things.

A few tidbits about me: I met my husband in college, flirting over tuba letters in the Penn Band. Our dog, CJ, and our cat, Sabrina, round out our family. I'm a sewist, knitter and needlepointer, and an occasional scrapbooker. I love organizing, reading, making jewelry, and hiking. A Chicago girl at heart, I am an avid follower the Cubs, Bears, and Blackhawks.
