happy thanksgiving and go huskers...

Dad called me yesterday and wanted to know if I wanted tickets to the Nebraska game on Friday. Of course I do!!! So after our thanksgiving festivities on Thursday (which include nintendo wii competitions) I will get to go sit in a sea of red and have the best hotdog in the world. I can't wait!

We play Colorado which is our traditional after thanksgiving day game. I wonder who I will cheer for someday when I live in Colorado...probably still Nebraska.

(I wonder if I need a cute new red sweater or something warm ;)

I made this scarf on Sunday (I am wearing it today ;). It is from Martha Stewart's site...usually her projects take about 4 days to complete, but this one is so easy and instant satisfaction! I will probably make a couple more to perfect the technique. It also helps to work with a boy scout leader to teach you how to tie the knots (thanks Mike!).

Here is the link if you would like to make your own...

Tip: The Martha directions say to use 1 1/2 times the length of yarn for the scarf you wish to make. I used a little over 2 times the length of yarn and my scarf is just about the perfect length.

Time to make: Under an hour!!!

how do you know you live in south dakota?

The freezer at your work is filled with dead pheasants!

This has made me stop putting ice in my water. Who wants pheasant ice cubes? Joan sent out a mandate today to remove the pheasants. I hope they really do find a new home.

We may be the only advertising agency in the world with dead pheasants. I wonder if anyone has ever done a study on that ;)

p.s. take note that the pheasants are next to the cookie dough. Now that is who we really are!

lucky girl...

Last night this cute little girl was baptized and I was lucky enough to be one of her sponsors. It was fun to see her and her family and to be part of something so special. Thanks Rani!

joining this century...

That's what the boys at work say about my new purchase. My old TV was "old school". My new TV arrived yesterday and it is pretty and skinny. Next purchase an apple tv ;)

Now I am ready for winter...

bathroom complete!

It's done. I have finally had a my color fix. I am not really sure why I did not paint it before now and of course I forgot to take a before picture. The brown makes such a big difference. The bottom half was white before and the top was a strange blue. Someday the bathroom will have a major over haul but for now I am happy. Now the girls can come over ;)

Over the summer the girls at work stared a girl dinner night. Friday is my turn to host the dinner at my house (this is where the why comes in). Why am I so crazy that I have to do a great big project before people come to my house? Why do I think I need to paint the bathroom and completely redecorate it? Why am I worried that people will not think my house is cool/clean enough?

So I am a little tired today. I finished painting one of the colors at 12:30 am, I have to go home at noon to do a coat of the dark brown paint and then do another one after work.

I think I might be insane...
(but those of you reading this probably already know that ;)
