A catch up day and a 3 million dollar ad!

Today I am going to spend the day catching up on blogging! I have been a bit slack lately with back-to-school fun and games, trying new recipes and "keeping house!" So today I am going to visit my old friends, catch up with some new ones and visit all the kind people who left comments for me over the last few days.
In the meantime I hope you enjoy this commercial which was a big hit during the Superbowl, well for me anyway! I think this ad was for the gals!

The boys in my family are pretty big fans of American football and my Husband and son were thrilled that New Orleans won. I kind of understand the game but was more interested in the 1/2 time entertainment and the amazing ads that come on during 1/2 time. Can you believe that they cost $3m for a 30 second slot!!!???

So, just in time for Valentine's Day, here is Google's 3 million dollar ad known as "A French Love story" or "Parsian Love." I hope you enjoy it! I think it's great. 

Best wishes,



  1. Oh it is so gorgeous...!! would you believe it I am sitting here with tears in my eyes at the end... such a softie!! Thank you for sharing this - LOVE IT!

  2. I has no idea they showed the Super Bowl over there :) I was happy with the Saints winng...hubby was not :) All the sweeter :)

    What a cute ad! I never saw it before but I really didn't watch much of the game even though I was at a Super Bowl party. Thanks for passing it along.

    I just finished snacking on a Peanut Butter cookie from your recipe you posted. Thanks!

  3. Natasha~~~

    I am so glad that you have time to blog again...you are always so much fum. I am not a big football fan and don't really understand the game that well either. But the Superbowl is like New Years Eve here in the states...you just can't miss it. I love the half time entertainment and I really loved hearing Carrie Underwood sing.

    I SO enjoyed your video...how funny. I really laughed! Thanks so much!!


  4. I am so glad you shared that ad. It is the first time I saw it. So sweet and cute!
    Glad you got to see the game. We were also happy the Saints won, too!!

  5. Bonjour Natasha,
    What a fabulous ad!!! Loved it - I did some of those searches myself!
    Hope you're having a good week!

  6. That is such a wonderful ad! Very effective! At least they are not spending too much money making the ad :)

  7. Natasha,
    Definitely one of my favorite ads of the night. It has received a lot of attention here in the States. Wouldn't it be nice if every love story was that simple?

    Have a great week,

  8. That was a cute advertisement, I didn't see it, even though I was glued to the tv for the entire game. Most of us were happy that the Saints won, Lib's hubby wanted the Colts though. (Don't feel a bit sorry for him...)My son has been googling all the ads today, he is the perfect teenager that falls for all the advertising, they have a gold mine in him. It's fun to know that your boys are interested in football. We have a lot of football players in our home. Have a great week!

  9. Hi Natasha,
    Ok how did I miss that ad? You know our friend Mimi over at Bonjour Romance is living her life according to that add sort of. So funny and so touching at the same time. I was smiling and weepy at the same time. Thanks for sharing!
    Also thanks for you comments about my post. I hear you about saying I love you. I tell my daughter never to leave without saying goodbye and I love you. You just never know. We must remember what is truly important to us. Often we get so caught up in the mechanics of the day and the menial things going on and what we are doing. We need to remember what we are feeling.
    Have a wonderful day!
    I love having you for a friend!! :)

  10. Soo cute ad.Im seeing it for the first time

  11. Oh Natasha,
    It was my favorite one too. I don't know why but it made me tear up...it was just sooooo sweet. It goes to show how a commercial that is quite simple can still create a big impact...I LOVED IT!

    Hugs and Kisses,

  12. Bonjour Natasha!
    For some unknown reason your picture ad disappeared. I just wanted to drop by and see how your were doing in your little corner.

  13. Bonjour Natasha,
    Bonne semaine!

  14. I am catching up too on my blogging, as I have been sick. That ad was cute.
    Enjoy your week Natasha!

  15. Thanks for sharing the ad. I missed it Sunday, and its too sweet. I didn't know the super bowl was watched in Australia. I personally don't enjoy it, but I don't know any men who agree with me. In fact, many women wouldn't agree with me. I do love the ads, tho. Rosie

  16. That was a beautiful commercial. I liked the Budweiser one, too.

  17. Really cute! Thanks for following my blog, I can relate to that commercial a lot being from Paris!! Come say hi Again!

  18. Aw that's so cute. I didn't watch during half time. We were putting kids to bed then.

  19. I love your blog Natasha, although I'm feeling quite hungry now x

  20. Oh, very cool! Thanks for sharing!

  21. I didn't catch many ads...but I saw this one and loved it! My husband got a kick out of watching me watch it because I was so wrapped up!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog. I am happy to make your acquaintance!

  22. o my gosh! I swooned all over the place when I saw this ad!

  23. Just spent 5 minutes on your blog and now feeling nostalgic about our visit to Australia some years ago.

  24. Aloha, I too am catching up with my blogsphere beauties and happenings, so fun to see I'm in the mix of it all,
    Aloha wishes for a great week

  25. I have not seen that yet and I seriously started crying. Beautiful. Thanks so much for posting! As I wipe my tears on my blouse...
