“…and the home of the SOONERS!!”

this weekend starts my favorite holiday – college football!!! i love everything about game days: waking up and watching kirk & lee on espn, putting on my OU tshirt, making delicious football food and watching numerous games ALL DAY!! oh and we can’t forget putting “boomer sooner” on the ipod at 8am, cranked as loud as our stereo system will go!!

this year, i thought i would offer my readers a FREE, that’s right people, i said FREE downloadable OU football schedule! i made three different designs for you to print out and put on your refrigerator, your desk, or save it as your desktop background!

if OU, sadly, isn’t your favorite team – let me know and i’ll create a schedule for you! boomer!





unfortunately the pictures from the actual shrimp boil got deleted off the computer before saving – so sadly i won’t be able to share the fun we had. on another note, check out the menu place card and sign i created for the dinner! each person got their own menu card with their name on it!

awhile ago i found this amazing idea through greylikesweddings. custom labels on beer bottles! i saved this thinking i could use this one day. {you can see staci’s labels over on her blog here.}

as i was researching ideas for aric’s birthday (which was yesterday), i thought, what better way than to make him some custom labels for bottles of beer! a creative + inexpensive birthday present. {sidenote – i didn’t just get him beer, he did have other gifts as well}

first, i ordered these labels from paper source. have you all been to paper source? great resource for paper + gifts as well! remember the moleskine? i got that gorgeous paper from them.

next, i started designing the labels. i had 2 designs i liked, so i decided to use both and make them cohesive. but it was missing something. all that i had on there was “happy birthday, august 1, 2010” and “happiest of days.” brainstorm.brainstorm.brainstorm. yes! i will put funny quotes from the movie “the hangover” on them because we quote it all the time! voila – an idea born. after finding my favorite 18 quotes, i added them to the labels, put “hangover brewing company” on it and printed them out! here they are in all their glory…
