Super Bowl XLVIII

charms-addict-footballI’ve become a rather avid football fan these last two seasons, watching any given Sunday and learning the rules of the game from my husband. It’s been really exciting rooting for the home team especially since they’ve been so good. I knew that we were on the road to greatness and was as ecstatic as anyone to make it to the playoffs and seeing the Seahawks in the Super Bowl!

To represent and show my pride as a 12th Man (stands for the fans), I’ve got multiple bracelets to demonstrate my spirit! Pandora, Trollbeads, and Alex and Ani are my featured choices; I created a Seattle themed Pandora bracelet some time ago and it’s one of my go-to pieces. My Trollbeads combination I made especially for today and I recently tracked down an official NFL Seahawks Alex and Ani bangle.


I purchased the Pandora two-tone Football Helmet when we made it to the playoffs last year and I knew we’d be at the Super Bowl this year – I’m so glad I’m right!  The Football and Seeing Spots blue/lime green Murano round out the football section on my Seattle bracelet.  Other charms include the Tulip dangle, Sailboat, Biagi coffee cup, Seattle spacer, and retired Sideways Fish make up notable things around the Sound.  The House, Journey, and Libra/scales of justice cameo showcases my life here.  I also have charms for the other sporting teams in the area, the Mariners and Sounders, but I’m not nearly as big a fan of baseball or soccer.

My Trollbeads bracelet features our blue and neon green team colors, and these have been decking the town for the past few months (as well as 12th Man flags).  I didn’t realize I had enough neon greens to do justice to this bracelet so I’m glad I found some in my collection!  Blues were easy, but the other hurdle I came across was finding enough silvers that fit the theme, so I concentrated on Seahawks (eagles) and fish since we’re close to the water.  I’m very happy with how it turned out!

Alex and Ani debuted their NFL Collection back at the start of the season and immediately I had my eye on the Seahawks bangle.  I thought that the limited number of stores would finally start carrying this design when we were in the playoffs but no, none of my local retailers offered the NFL bangles.  Then it was down to the wire but I managed to find it online.  I just received it at the beginning of the week, so it’s great that I can wear the actual logo of my team during the game (along with my jersey and other sports paraphernalia).

Whether you’re watching the Super Bowl for the game or for the commercials, it’s a fun time to hang out with family and friends!  Kickoff is at 6:30 pm EST and 3:30 pm PST, are you attending or hosting any Super Bowl parties?  Go Hawks!

      Thanks, Carol! I think I clapped so much, my bracelets bruised my wrists/arms, haha! It never ends ;).

    I’m glad you won! I’m a Ravens fan myself, so I know how nice that feels! I have the Ravens Alex and Ani, maybe one day I’ll get a whole Pandora bracelet!
