Go Beavs!

I can't believe it is Sunday already. This weekend is flying by. Friday I was all ready to go walking, maybe hit a few garage sales, work on some projects, etc. Then I got called to work. Some of you reading my blog don't know this about me, but I am a substitute lunch lady. Yup! That's right, I prepare and serve food to school children. I was an actual regular lunch lady a few years ago, but I decided that I would just sub as I was too tired to work on anything else when I got off work. Being a lunch lady is much harder on you physically than you might think. You are constantly on your feet and there is actually quite a bit of heavy lifting. Anyway, after working on Friday, I was pretty tired so I didn't get much done that day at home.

Saturday we were all up bright and early to go to my daughter's soccer game. They really played great and ended up tieing 2-2. We then drove to Corvallis to visit our alma mater, Oregon State University, and attend a Beavers football game. It was a perfect day weather wise and the Beavs were smokin! They were playing Idaho State and clobbered them. It was a really fun family day!

We had never been to the new stadium and it was fabulous. The above pictures shows the view from our seats. Look at all the pretty trees in the background. See all the orange in the stadium. Everyone was wearing the school colors. It was so cool. My husband and I have no recollection of that much school spirit when we went there. Anyway, we try to get to OSU at least once a year. We would love for our kids to go there someday so we can visit them and stroll down memory lane which is what we always do when we visit. It really is a wonderful campus.

Thought I would share with you a couple shots of where my two surprises ended up. At least for now.

I have decided to keep the mirror, at least for awhile. I love looking at it and knowing that I uncovered its potential. ha ha I will definitely keep the roses print. I just cut the mat down and put it in a frame from my stash. I think I will try to find a place to hang it somewhere. I asked my good friend Joy if she would come by sometime soon to help me do some rearranging. I am getting tired of things where they are and need some new eyes to help me. She does an amazing job of decorating and creating vignettes.

Have a great week!
