On Wisconsin!

College football is one of my favorite things.  It always has been, but since I've know Mr. C (a football coach and quite frankly, football fanatic), I've learned more about teams and the game itself than I ever thought I would know.  In big news, my beloved alma mater, the University of Wisconsin, beat #1 ranked Ohio State yesterday!  Way to go, Badgers!

However, I do have a little confession.  I think Ohio State's coach, Jim Tressel, is so handsome (in an older-man-sorta-way) in his tie and sweater vest.  Although he coaches the opposing team, I just can't help but give respect to a sharp dresser.  Case in point:

So, there you have my thoughts on yesterday's game.  I love the big Wisconsin win, and I love Jim Tressel's sweater vests.

Falling into Fall

I just love fall.  I love the changing colors, the crisp weather, and fall clothes.  I love trips to the apple orchard, football, and Sunday walks with leaves crunching under my feet.  While I don't have a lot of fall decorations, I had fun putting out a few things this past weekend:

Welcome to our home, all decorated for autumn:

Now, onto the inside of the house:
Our kitchen island, complete with my favorite fall treat -
candy corn and dry roasted peanuts!

I scored these cute little Halloween signs at Wal-Mart last year for $1 each. 
I think they are so fun!

Enjoy the beautiful weather!
