Did you watch the Superbowl on Sunday?

I did, though I was working on my computer while I watched.  I wasn’t really a big fan of either team,s o I was not too invested in the game.  However, I hoped Denver would win for Peyton Manning.  He is such a class act.

I am always excited about watching the commercials and the half time show.  I totally loved the Prius commercial, so funny!

I wasn’t just working the whole time I was on the computer I was also doing some shopping.  Valentines Day is next weekend and I needed to get my sweetie something so I did a little Amazon surfing in the electronics department.

I also like to make a special dinner and dessert for Valentine’s Day.  This cake will definitely be served on the 14th. I was so thrilled with this cake.  It is heavy, dense and moist.  The frosting has a great chocolate flavor with hints of maple.
