Christmas Cards 2011

Our card this year! I ordered it from My Publisher and I could not have been more happy with the results!
 And back:
And The Rorabaugh and Miggins cards this year:

How I displayed all the super cute cards we got this year:
 I just punched a hole in each card and strung some burlap (that I spray glittered) through and hung each one from a branch. Easy Peasy.
 filled the vase with glittered pinecones and extra ornaments, topped off with a nice red flower.

Gameday Re-caps

I seriously slacked on the game day recaps here... and I really have no excuse except that they were so wildly fun that I was completely out of commission every Sunday this fall.
For the OU vs Missouri game - it was Dave and I's turn to do the main dish so we opted for a Mexican theme and I made taco salad!
 We acted like the wind screen was a step and repeat and it turned out awkward per usual..
Our tailgating neighbors let us borrow their Shark head for some pics, beer pong was played, Renea was surprised with Birthday cupcakes and Rex made friends with the opposing team's fans. Just a usual tailgate. :)
We enjoyed a win and a beautiful sunset over the stadium!
 And the after-game...

We took it easy before the Ball State Game and relaxed at our old house with it's new tennant, Brent before the game. It was a nice change of pace. And made me very nostalgic about our old abode. at least I didn't cry this time... awkward...

Since we didn't pre-game too hard we decided to After-game with friends! 
And that was Ball State.

We celebrated lil Meg's birthday at the Texas Tech Tailgate and went ALL out! It was the most successful tailgate of the year...followed by the worst storm (lost our good tent) and followed by an upsetting loss.
Before the storm and the game, much fun was had by all!
All the cool kids were there.
Dave questioned why Florence and the Machine was on the GameDay playlist, which prompted Ashley and I into a full on dance party. Wait is it a party if there's just 2 of you dancing? Either way I think we proved that Florence and the Machine belongs on the playlist.

Lots of beer pong happened..

Matt and I beat like everyone, I say that b/c I honestly can't remember who all we beat. It was pretty incredible. So incredible that it warranted this photo collage.

Then right before game time sky turned this crazy color...
And the guys tried to figure out what to do with everything...

Then it poured and the game was delayed an hour and a half then we lost and it sucked and that's the end of that gameday.

'Til next season Sooner Fans!

I know I'm super late posting this but it's been crazy around our house! Dave is studying for boards non-stop which leaves most of the cleaning, decorating, and Christmas shopping to me! I'm cool with it though... it'll pay off eventually right?

Anyways, here's our Thanksgiving re-cap!
We packed up our xbox and our kinect so have some Miggins family Kinect fun! We played for at least 12 hours while we were there! It was a hit!

Wednesday night we went out to dinner at Elote with AnneMarie and her bf Adam, and Patti and Nick (pre-engagement)

Elote was having their weekly Luchador wrestling matches so there were some characters walking around.. it was super fun! We had some amazing fried avocado tacos and their famous puffy tacos!
The boys were instant bffs with Adam. He's a keeper AnneMarie...

After dinner we went to the Dust Bowl for some friendly bowling. You have to keep your own score and who knows how to do that? Patti did! Dave and Adam enjoyed the outdoor "boingy" chairs.
Kellie came to join us! Yay!!
It was a blast! I wish we all lived in the same city and could do this every weekend! For reals.
The next day was Thanksgiving and the bowling alley pitchers were not agreeing with us... but we persevered and enjoyed a delicious meal and hours of football.

We enjoyed the vintage look of my grandparents formal living room. And Matt ate too much he fell over.
After Thanksgiving lunch we napped and then headed to Utica Square for Lights On!

There's cocktails in those mugs....
Good times, good food, good family, good Thanksgiving!
