Hello, welcome to Matt and Katie's Blog! We originally started this for our friends and families, and to help acclimate to the desert heat. It's taken on a life of its own, and we're now using it to share the best of what we see, point out our mistakes, and, with any luck, help others around us THRIVE. Enjoy!

When the Saints Go Marching In
There are many benefits to living in Dubai, but when as a red-blooded American, you want to take in the Superbowl the 3:45am start time just isn't sleep friendly.
However we don't give up so easily - even if we have to ignore all social media, news outlets and annoying spoil-sports for a whole day just to enjoy the game with an element of suspense. At 9pm the next day our local sports pub was kind enough to host a viewing session for those dedicated few. They even put together a special American-style snack menu for us (because pita and hummus doesn't really scream "football"), although I have no idea what a "bulldog" hotdog is supposed to be.
As we finally tuned in I realized, to my horror, that the stations here have cut out all of the commericals and the half-time show. This is the Superbowl people! Don't you know it's all about the commericals? (I heard I wasn't missing much from the Who's peformance.)
So post-game I of course hiked it over to YouTube to catch up. I leave you with this. "Keep yo' hands of my momma, keep yo' hands off my Doritos." Indeed!
