I’m guessing it’s probably the biggest day in sports every year. Definitely the biggest game every year. Yep, I’m talking about the Superbowl and its this Sunday. I’m sure you were already aware of that, right? It’s damn near a holiday with all the hype that leads up to it, press coverage, superbowl parties with decorations and special menus. It is a big freakin’ deal!

I’ve mentioned before that I’ve never been that into sports. I’ve always liked basketball but I cannot stand to watch baseball on television, rather go to the ballpark in the summer. I have gotten more into football over the years, the husband loves it so I’ve had little choice.

It is important spending the time with him and definitely a fun way to bond but I still am not that in to the sport of it all. But I have found a way to get excited about it. For a girl like me, not a “sports girl” who gets excited about games even without watching it with her boo, I’ve realized that I have to connect on an emotional level. That means getting a bit wrapped up in the story behind the players (really loving everything Steph Curry these days), the team (the Carolina Panthers only lost one game this season) or the sport. Getting excited about a good rivalry (the Atlanta Falcons and the New Orleans Saints), a little gossip (Cam Newton’s Versace pants) or fun facts. ESPN’s 30 for 30 is great for more relevant information like this!

My favorite tidbits that are getting me ready for this year’s Superbowl…

  • although he doesn’t want to make it an issue, Cam Newton is only the 6th black quarterback to make to the big game
  • this could likely be Peyton Manning’s last game
  • at 39 years old, Peyton will be the oldest quarterback to play in the Superbowl
  • this is the first time that Peyton Manning has been the underdog in the Super Bowl
  • both head coaches are making their Super Bowl head coaching debuts but Carolina’s coach won a ring as a player for the Chicago Bears in 1986
  • Coldplay is performing the half time show with Beyonce as a special guest (a personal fun fact)

Believe me when I tell you, if you are having a hard time getting into watching sports with your boo, look for the story behind the sport. It works!

The Skin I’m In. . .

Me. Uncovered. Bare. All Face

As of late, my face has been under a little construction.  Turning 40 definitely has it up and downs and for me the current state of my skin has been a downer! Never one to not face a challenge head on, when I began facing a little unwanted adult acne, I quickly sought out to find my long, lost dermatologist. I tried a few quick fixes in between, which included new products here and there, drinking more water, etc., but I clearly needed a professional to step in. Thank heaven for Google. I did a quick search for Dr. Lynn McKinley Grant and stumbled upon this! Could I be so lucky and she was located in close proximity to my job?? Score! I found her and didn’t hesitate to get in. I was quickly smitten with the new office and overall welcoming feeling me and my sidekick (youngest tyke) received. I was quickly whisked back into the patient area and the nurse took copious notes regarding my current regime: which recently included the addition of this tool. Then the doctor came in and looked me over and gave me my new face diet! Which in addition to a few prescription products, it also included tips like changing my pillow cases, adding a good cleanser, staying moisturized, wearing sunscreen daily, and more water!!!I have stayed committed to my new day/night routine and the results are paying off! Fast forward 6 weeks, my face is glowing, breakouts are minimal, and I can’t begin to tell you how happy I am to be in the skin I’m in, once again! Thanks, Dr. Grant!!!

What have you done for your skin, lately?

Chat ya’ later!
