Weekend Recap and DIY

This weekend was a lot of fun! The buckeyes played Ohio University [where Justin and ALL of his friends went to school] so we had to go down to the game. We all went to River Watch to tailgate and had a blast. the weather surely did not feel like the middle of september!

Justin and I
I guess when J went up to get a drink at the tailgate the guy told him that he needed to make up his mind... referring to who he should cheer for - either OU OR OSU... not both!

Jess, Amanda and myself
a shout out to Jess who is a loyal reader to my blog - I love it!!!!
the whole group
just the girls
during the game
so it was really nice and SUNNY
and I asked Justin during the game if I had a tan line from my shirt
[i tan very easily - and I had put sunblock on my face to protect it and so I wouldn't have racoon eyes - however i didn't really think it would be that bad anywhere else - boy was I wrong]
look at these tan lines on my arms and neck....
wahhhhh [<---- as snooki would say]

Saturday night we left the game and went to Roosters for some delicious food [seeing a pattern here????] - and then a few of us came home to watch the ND vs Michigan State game and play board games. We played Apples to Apples and Loaded Questions... so much fun! i think a few times during the game I was crying because I was laughing so hard!

Sunday morning, Jess, Jimmy, Justin and myself [i feel like i should have a J name too! ha] went to breakfast and then they headed back to Dayton.

Over the weekend Jess and I were talking about cute halloween decorations that she had seen - and she mentioned the cute wreaths at Target... so naturally I had to go and see what she was talking about. I found this wreath that i loved, but a price tag of $20 that I wasn't so crazy about...
so Jaci and I decided to head on over to Michaels and look at things to make it for cheaper - and I'm pretty sure we were successful
Styrofoam Wreath - $4.40
Boa - $6.70 [$10.99w/a 40% off coupon]
Paper Clips - Free
Green Balls - $3.99
Total - $15.09
wrap your boa around the strofoam wreath and attach with paper clips [unfold the paper clips and cut in half - you will have two U shapes
and then add decorations - I used the the green small xmas balls - but i'm sure you could just add a bow or silver skulls - or whatever you might be interested in!

So thats our weekend recap - football - more football and DIYs.. Try not to be too jealous! ha!

I hope ya'll had a wonderful weekend too!

Also, just a reminder - you only have until noon on Monday to register for the give-a-way!

The DIY wreath is really cute! Also, I played Apples to Apples for the first time a couple of weeks ago (I swear I don't live under a rock) and it's hilarious! Love that game.

I always get the game day tanlines! LOL!
Loved your photos - there were lots of buckeye fans crawling around bobcat country, too! LOL! I love the OSU vs. Ohio game day, even if it is obvious as to what is going to happen - it's still a fun day :D

Awesome DIY - i would've attempted to do the same thing. Don't know if it would've turned out as good as yours, though!

have a great week!

What a super cute wreath idea. I love it! Oh and the tan line :)
Atleast you got one, I can't get my body to tan,burn or anything. NOT COOL.

I'm glad you had fun with your friends at the OSU game.
