Superbowl 43 will be played in Tampa Bay on Sunday, February 1, 2009. That's only 12 days away! The Pittsburgh Steelers, who have been in six previous Superbowl games, will play the Arizona Cardinals who will be making their first appearance on the big stage. All around the U.S. men, women and children are getting ready for the big game! Parties are being planned, tickets are being bought and sports bars are getting ready for the crowds. We've always been a big football family and love watching the Superbowl every year. However, I would enjoy it even more if my favorite team the Cincinnati Bengals were in it, but hey there's always next year. This year we're going to a Superbowl party at a friend's house. It's an annual party for them and every year they do a different theme. This year I'm so excited because it's a "costume" theme party. And you know me, I can always find a great costume! My husband and I have decided to go as referee's. His costume is your typical referee costume with black pants and a black/white shirt, however mine is a little bit should we say, sexier than that. As you know HalloweenExpress.com has some great women's referee costumes that would definitely make the football players have a little trouble concentrating on the game. I've decided to go with the 3 pc sexy referee costume for my part. But since it's a family party I'll be wearing a pair of my sons cleats instead of the spiked heals. My son Caden will be wearing the Sports Warrior costume making him seem like a zombie football player and both my daughters are going as cheerleaders. Olivia wants to wear the Disney Princess Cheerleader costume and Sydney will wear the High School Musical Cheerleading costume. She thought it was more important to represent East High than the two teams that are actually playing in the Superbowl!
