Two weeks ago, the Seahawks won against the 49ers (the football team of San Francisco), which led them to the NFL!! After their win, we learnt that they were going to play against the Broncos, the football team of Colorado.

And, here we are now, today it was the BIG MATCH!! It was about to start at 4 pm and everybosy was tuned in front of a television at their places or at a pub. After 3 hours of an amazing game, the Seahawks won the Broncos!!! For the first time, the Seahawks won the NFL !!!! Wooohooooo!!!!

After the game, my friends and I went downtown to celebrate the win with the rest of Seattle people. The whole city was celebrating till the morning!! Hahahahahaha

Update for January and February 2014 - Part 1

New Year's Eve - December 31st 2013

Four hours before welcoming the new year, I found myself at the International Fountain of Seattle Center, which is close to Space Needle. I was one of the hundred people who gathered to experience and see the fireworks  from the top of Space Needle closer than ever! At this event, there were other Au Pairs with me to celebrate. I had the chance to meet new people and learn how differently the New Year's Eve is celebrated in another countries such as in Mexico where they eat 12 grapes. Twelve grapes that represent wishes for the whole new year; one grape for each month - a different wish for each month. Unfortunately, the girls had only one bag and we were a big group, so we could make only 5 wishes for the tear. We were supposed to eat them after the final countdown.

11:55 pm : Started looking at the time and saying almost every minute how much time is left for the New Year to "come".

11:59 pm : One minute left! We were excited more than ever, even though it was too cold outside.  The final countdown started... 10,9,8 (the Space Needle was pink and every second a light was popping out), 7,6,5 (holding the grapes and waiting to make my wishes/resolutions for 2014), 4,3,2,1 -----> HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! I ate my grapes, I made my wishes and an hour later I was celebrating with my friends in a club!! Woot woot!!!
