Super Bowl Fun & Feature

We had a great time Sunday with family, enjoying a delicious assortment of foods and watching the Super Bowl.  I don't necessarily have 'a team', there are a number of talented athletes I enjoy watching, but overall I like good football.  My B'more family was doing it big (I was born in Baltimore), so I was definitely rooting for my hometown team.  One of the highlights of the game for me was the Halftime Pepsi Show Countdown. Pepsi presented a Fan Kickoff Challenge several weeks ago for the highly anticipated Halftime Show by Beyonce which included a mini reunion with Destiny's Child members Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams.

Paris asked us to help her with the pics which were a combination of about 15 specific photos with a nighttime backdrop. Paris has a lot of personal goals and aspirations. She's not a 'in the box' or corner kind of kid. She is a creative, and gifted spirit that can do just about anything she puts her mind to.  Paris is focused on school right now and she's doing great academically.  We encourage her to pursue her dreams and follow her heart or at least create the road map to take the necessary steps to get there. There is nothing to big or out of reach (it's all attainable). It requires hard work, dedication and commitment, but we all believe in her.  She's done a few things recently to step outside of her comfort zone and I'm super proud of her.  I'm happy that she followed through with submitting her photos.  There were over 100,000 pictures submitted.  Three of hers were selected as potential finalists. That is a great feat! In the end one of them was chosen, but you have to admit that jumping shot is 'off the charts' good.

This is only the beginning. To see the full countdown piece click here Pepsi Super Bowl Halftime Commercial...I promise you if you blink you'll miss it, but according to this tag, Superbowl ads cost $8 Million per minute, so Pepsi paid about $4500 per frame shown...'you go girl'.  Great things are in your future.  Continue to apply your self and keep reaching for the stars.
