Are you ready for some football?

One of the photos entered into the Pepsi contest

Are you ready for some football?!? Superbowl Sunday is just a few days away and while the Buffalo Bills aren’t playing in the game you can bet I’ll still be watching along with the millions of other people. I’m indifferent to either team winning as I like both the Baltimore Ravens (I liked them more when they had former Buffalo Bill, Lee Evans on the team) and the 49ers.

More importantly I’m excited to see one of my favorite performers Beyonce perform during the Halftime Show. Earlier this month I entered in the Pepsi contest to try and get on the field for her performance, while that’s not happening, the pictures I submitted may still be used during her performance which is still pretty cool.

While the main point of the Superbowl is watching the football game, we all gather at someones home or go out to a bar or restaurant to watch the game. Food is an important factor for this big event whether your staying low key or doing it up big. Below are some of the best Superbowl party foods to have for your party. Now let’s just hope the game is fun and entertaining!

Top 5 Foods to have at your Superbowl Party

  1. Chicken Wings (that’s a given)
  2. Chili
  3. Pizza
  4. Dips/Spreads (spinach dip, chicken wing dip, bread dip, cheese platters, crackers, etc)
  5. Vegetables (for those watching what they eat)

The other day my Grandma celebrated her 87th birthday. For this important day I wanted to get her something special, so I stopped at Wahl’s Candies by my house to pick up her favorite treat, chocolate covered cherries!

When I walked into the store I was surrounded by a variety of different types of chocolates and gifts, just like you would at any other chocolate shop. What made this experience different was knowing I was walking into a family owned and operated business that has been in WNY since the mid 1930’s. I had never been in the store before so of course I had to get a piece of chocolate for myself. I tried one of the Buttercream Milk Chocolate Raspberry’s. It was delicious! 🙂

Located at 130 Losson Road in Cheektowaga, NY, Valentine’s Day is around the corner, make sure to stop in and try one of their delicious chocolates. They won’t disappoint.




This past weekend, I, along with my sister and niece attended FLURRIOUS! an annual winter festival that takes place in Delaware Park. It’s a free event open to the public that provides fun activities throughout the day.

This year, attendees had a variety of activities to participate in, such as, kickball, snow tennis, ice hockey, or sledding in the park. The weather was perfect for this all day event. Snow was on the ground and the temperature was in the mid 20’s, making it a perfect winter day.

Food and drink were available for purchase and live music played as visitors were walking around. Overall its a great winter event to take the family to or to grab a group of friends and form a team for one of the kickball tournaments.

I had the opportunity to attend a luncheon for my work a couple weeks ago. It was hosted by the Kelly for Kids Foundation who’s Founder and President is the one and only Jim Kelly (past quarterback for the Buffalo Bills). Kelly for Kids is committed to serving disadvantaged and disabled youth in Western New York through distribution of grant money raised throughout the year.

While I’ve worked with Jim in the past doing promotions for the radio station, being able to hear him speak about his viewpoints on community involvement, volunteering, and non-for-profit work simply inspired me more to want to make a difference in this world.

Since I started volunteering for a handful of non-profits five years ago I have always found volunteering to be very rewarding. To me the gift you receive by helping others in need is priceless. Nothing compares to how you feel after helping someone. Hearing Jim speak and seeing what an influence he is on people in the WNY community has encouraged me to continue my efforts to help make this WNY community a better place.

While I know we (myself included) all lead busy lives, sometimes from time to time the best thing you can do for yourself is to take a step back and figure out what really matters.
