Weekend Recap

It seems like weekends just fly by 'round these parts. Although, I imagine they fly by around other people's parts too ;).

This weekend was my first home game this season and I was ready. Like most of the US, we had a cold front hit this weekend and it really felt like fall. I went out and got some new fall decorations and had my outfit all planned out for the game Saturday. Here are a few pictures :)
the fam jam :)
We found the Hokie bird!
Right before the line up for Enter Sandman! Love Lane Stadium (and our awesome seats this year!)
We tailgated as usual and let me just say that I love a 4pm game. I got up in time for a nice run, made some brownies and made the necklace I am wearing for the game from an old t-shirt as well as this orange and maroon one. It is super easy and all you need is an old t-shirt and scissors, that's it. I made the orange one to go with my maroon BR cape, and this orange and maroon one to wear later in the season! The tutorial I used is here.


I also made these for my mama for her birthday which was last week (along with some Kate Spade sunnies from the sista and I both). Obviously we needed a big Hokie one and I made her a little ODU one to go in her office. They were so easy to make, but a little tedious. I can't find the tutorial I used, but basically you buy a wire wreath and cut ribbon and tie it around. You could do all one color, but I broke it up into team colors and I even threw in a little white ribbon with footballs on it. So easy and cute! 

I'm not ready to be back on the grind, but I do get to make my way to Cville this weekend to see my sweet boy, so I guess it will all be worth it. Have a great night, y'all!
