Let’s Go Stanford!

This weekend I went to my very first college football game and watched Stanford beat Arizona State University, it was pretty great!

Stanford(The day started out with a downpour of rain but brought out the eucalyptus oils the trees once the rained stopped. It turned into the most beautiful day)

Stanford(There was a great turnout, we ended up sitting in the Stanford section)

Stanford(We were right under the lights and under the clouds)

Stanford(39 to 14 in the fourth quarter)

I learned a lot about Stanford on Saturday. One, they have no official mascot but they do have a dancing Christmas tree. Two, the crowd comes equipped with Christmas ornaments which they jingle in order to create a stir and distract the other team, it seemed to have worked. Three, their stadium is beautiful and every seat is a good one!

Bee Happy!

pooh bear honeyBy now you have heard that the San Francisco 49ers lost the Super Bowl, so I have been trying to soften the pain the best I could…with sweets! Brittany is always trying to keep me in check by making me spit my cookie out into her hand, walking by and pulling candy apples out of my mouth, and even swapping out my secret candy stash with baby carrots. I can’t help it, I love HONEY! I wanted to share a few of my favorite honey inspired items with you to try and sweeten your day a little!

honey perfume loccitane(I always start my day with a spray from my favorite perfurme from L’Occitane “Miel & Citron”. It is no longer available for purchase- best I could find was a bottle for $200 on Amazon! But fear not, they have come out with a limited edition honey line that will only be around for a few months so stock up!)

pushing Daisies

(One of my favorite TV shows of all time was Pushing Daisies. There has been nothing as beautifully crafted on TV since and it is a shame that is was cancelled prematurely (it won seven Emmy’s)! Bees and honey were an underlying tone throughout the series allowing the set and costume designers to have a lot of fun! Netflix the show if you are ever looking for something unique to watch, I own the series!)

honey candle(Beeswax candles smell amazing and are lightweight, they sit perfectly in pretty much holder because they have a sticky base. I love to burn them but they melt so quickly!)

honey massage(Did you know there are spas that massage you with honey?! Sign me up!)

honey-lemon-tea-b(This is how I love to start my morning!)

honey(My friend has a jar of honey sitting on the back seat of his car. I would be telling a lie if I said I didn’t take a quick taste when he wasn’t looking. I recommend leaving a jar in your car, it makes sense, you never know when you are going to be stranded somewhere and your honey levels are low)

If you are feeling a little gloomy over the Niners loss, you’re not alone. But I just showed you how to make the taste of defeat a little sweeter.

Wanna See A Large Bowl?

large bowlNo! Not this kind of bowl, we are talking about the SUPER BOWL! Guess what Bay Area fans, the 49ers are playing this year and we just might watch it! This has been an exciting time for us Bay Area sports fans! First the Giants win the World Series and now the 49ers might win the Super Bowl.

49ers(And just for a little gossip, the two coaches competing against each other are brothers!)

beyonce-super-bowl-2013(Beyonce is performing at the Half Time Show this year, maybe a nip slip in the making or another lip sync controversy?!)

Grab your dollar bills and get ready to bet on everything you can think of, it’s the Super Bowl afterall! We already know who wins though, we got to see the sneak peak footage from a TV executive, everyone knows it’s totally pre-recorded. We won’t spoil it for you though but they add a third team (we won’t tell you who it is but they rhyme with the Matriots) to do a Kaepernicking bit during Half Time!
