Well, January is over, and the Super Bowl is just days away. I’m not much of an NFL fan, so to be honest, I don’t even know who’s playing.

There is only one reason I ever go to a superbowl party, and that is the food. OK, that’s not totally true, I also go so I can have some girl time with the other women who have no interest in the game. 🙂
