{Football, Birthday and Milk Glass}

I've had a very busy weekend but with cool fall weather I didn't mind it one bit.  A dear friend of mine invited me to a NC State football game on Saturday.  It was my first time and I had a blast!  I'm a Longhorn fan {yes I know they suck right now} first but marrying a man who loves the Wolfpack means that I automatically became a State fan by default.  I cannot wait to go again and am going to look into getting us season tickets.  It was that amazing y'all.  I love sports.  Always have but college football is by far my absolute favorite.  I love the tailgating and rivalries.  And college football usually means colder weather.  With the summer we've had I was looking forward to that the most this year.   State ended up losing but I still had a blast! 

I had to show this because in the midst of 50,000 State fans there was a Longhorn fan!  We are true fans.  We love them whether they are winning or losing.  HOOK EM!

Sunday was spent celebrating our nephew's 7th birthday.  He's one amazing little boy.  He has saved our lives on so many occasions with his wit and smile.  We love him and are so blessed that God loaned him to our family.  We had a blast celebrating with him and the rest of the family! 

This post is totally random and somewhat all over the place but that's the story of our life.  I don't know why but I recently become obsessed with milk glass.  Growing up my great grandmother and grandmother had tons of pieces but I always thought they were ugly.  As I got older I realized how gorgeous milk glass really is.  I recently started purchasing pieces and although I don't have a real place to display them I am going to continue to purchase more in hopes that I'll find a place.  Here's what I have so far..... It's not much but I'll get there. 

This week I'm focusing on getting some projects marked off our "to do" list.  I am hoping to have a yard sale this weekend too.  We have so many unfinished projects and for some reason the cooler weather motivates to get them done.  I'm working on finishing a chair for our dining table and tomorrow I'm moving the dining table outside to sand the top so I can stain it dark walnut.  It's going to be a busy fall but if it continues to feel anything like it does today I'll gladly take on the challenges.


  1. North Carolina has great sport. I'm not a big football fan but I love basketball! Yea the weather is super. I was thinking we were never going to get rain again. Wow, did last week make up for it. My school was out for two days.

  2. I started collecting milk glass in high school! I'm a total nerd. Some of it is above our cabinets but a lot is in totes in a shed!
