Super Bowl Weekend in Atlanta

I think almost a full week later I have finally recovered from Super Bowl Weekend here in Atlanta.  We were lucky enough to get to attend the big game and loved the entire weekend.

It started off on Friday afternoon when we made our way downtown to check into our hotel.  Even though it was in our home city, I was really happy that we had a place to stay.  Traffic was crazy getting in and out of the city and just around in general.  We were at The American Hotel and it was right downtown so we could walk to everything! 

We went to a delicious dinner at Morton's Steakhouse and then got to see Imagine Dragons at the Tabernacle.  It was such a great venue for a concert and so small and intimate. It was nice to be able to see everything up close and they put on a great show!

Friday night I wore my favorite leggings and this awesome faux fur vest that I have shared before. 

On Saturday we went to came home to do some stuff with the kids and then went back downtown Saturday night for the Cardi B and Bruno Mars concert.  

We were in the Atlanta Social area and it was super nice VIP section. 

There was quite a bit of excitement before the concert began when we sat down with some friends of ours and they pointed over to who they thought was Lady Gaga.  I about lost my mind. I'm a huge Lady Gaga fan!  When I saw her thought I just wasn't sure. I asked all of our Instagram followers on our story and the majority of them thought it was her, too. She was in a separate section, had security with her and everything. 

So then when she got up to go to the bathroom I saw her face to face and realized that it wasn't her, but we knew the guy she was with did have to be someone famous.  The security and body guards were actually with him!  

I texted the pic to a few friends and put it on our story and sure enough, within a few minutes we had an answer. It was recording artist named Maluma. Never heard of him myself, but still fun entertainment before the concert began for us to fan over. 

Cardi B played first and then next up was Bruno Mars. He was amazing and put on such a great show. Lots of dancing, which I loved!

We slept in on Sunday morning and then had brunch to fuel us for the rest of the day.

My foot had really been bothering me all weekend so I decided to dress for comfort. I knew that we would be walking quite a distance from the hotel to the stadium and be on our feet a lot of the day.

We had a pre-party tailgate to attend and got to see the Patriot's cheerleaders.  I wasn't really cheering for the Patriots, but I love all cheerleaders so got a picture with them and an autographed poster for my daughter that cheers.  

Walking through downtown to the stadium was exciting, scary, crazy and full of excitement.  There were people EVERYWHERE.  People just hanging out and wanting to be a part of the action. 

Once we got in the stadium and found our seats I looked up and was amazed!  I had been in Mercedes Benz Stadium a lot of times and never seen the roof open!  

They had it open so that we could see the fly over during the national anthem.  

It was such a quick moment, but so very cool to see. 

I sort of wish they had left the roof open, but as soon as it was over I looked up and it was closed.  

The first half of the game was Boring with a capital B.  But when it was time for the half-time show we were pretty pumped! 

I heard a lot of criticism on the radio and social media the next day.  However, in person it was a great show and very entertaining.  

Overall it was a great night and we were so thankful that we got to attend.  I always have to stop myself and just take it all in because it is a surreal experience.
