Rose Bowl baby!

Oh yeah! Penn State is Rose Bowl bound. I'm so excited for my Alma mater. I wish I was back at school at the moment. I remember the feeling of victory that spreads throughout campus.... and the craziness.....a happy drunken mix of young and old. Its electric..that feeling. I love being in the middle of it.

Being a Penn State fan didn't exactly make me popular amongst a sea of Ohio State fans at work this evening, but I didn't let that ruin my enthusiasm. Ohio State is my 2nd favorite team and I loved watching them give Michigan a pounding.

Can you believe its Sat eve and I havent seen Twilight yet?? :( The tickets to the midnight show sold out several DAYS before the show. I wasn't sure of my work schedule so I had to wait. I was hoping fore the midnight because I can never go out on Fri/Sat nights. I usually work 10/12 hour shifts and I'm up mostly at night. *fingers crossed* I can go tomorrow. My husband is feeling fluish and I want him to sleep as much as possible. I could always scrap.

I actually made a few tags the other day. I hadn't made a tag in 2 years. I found this big box of shipping tags my mom had given me when my step dad sold his store.

I decided to make a tag for my tally sister Renee and then it all just went on from there. I couldn't stop. I will just choose a ribbon and tie them onto packages. It was fun to use my stamps. I'm so making some for Christmas. I just need to dig out my Christmas stamps. I'm currently rearranging my tiny scrap room and its a HIDEOUS mess but it already feels alot better. I wish I could go buy this storage from Target. Maybe when we move :)

the big 3-0

A little over a week ago I turned the big 30.... and the world did not end. I didnt even cry like I thought I would. I just had a blast.

The day started with a surprise Breakfest at Tiffanys themed tea party thrown by my Mother. It was so creative and cute and the food was delicious. We had chicken salad croisants, bruchetta, scones, tea sandwiches, cookies and more! We also had wine and cheese and watched the movie. It was so much fun. I actually got something from Tiffanys! A beautiful silver bracelet from my Mom & Skip. I also got an awesome set of Audrey Hepburn atcs and an amazing 8x8 address book handmade by my tallysisters. It is the coolest thing ever! My mom took pictures of everything but I dont have them yet. I will share soon.

After my afternoon tea it was time to go out drinking! We had a group of friends over for drinks and appetizers before heading out to the bars. Of course at the end of the night it was just Me, Matt, Matthew and Mindy as usual. We are always the late night crowd. Of course by the end of the night your makeup is gone and your hair is a wreck... and you decide to only make funny faces at the camera.

I slept til 11 the next day and woke up without hangover. Matt and I decided to get a picnic together and go check out the leaves at Mohican state park. It was absoutely stunning. It practically glowed red and orange.

After walking around and taking photos we stopped at the lodge to relax for a bit. It was so rustic and warm. My husband sneaked over and booked us a room for the night. Of course we didnt have anything with us... but we always like an adventure. We did find a store about 20 minute away and left to buy necessities and something to swim in. We had a nice romantic dinner and went swimming til they threw us out. Afterwards we explored the place before snuggling up in our room. It was such a spontaneous fun night.

It was a heck of a way to forget about being 30 :)
