Epic Cyclone Win | Epic College Memory

So last night was a night that will go down in my college life history books.  Iowa State played undefeated, number 2 ranked Oklahoma State as our last home football game of the year.  I'd never been to a game yet in my whole time so far at Iowa State... thanks to working a lot of weekends and getting sick the one game I was planning on going to earlier this fall.  So when I had the night off, I snatched up my bf and we headed to Jack Trice Stadium.  All decked out in my red cowgirl boots, lots of layers, a gold scarf, and red hat... I was all ready to cheer on the Cyclones. 

To make a long, intense, back-and-forth story short... we won!  Double overtime!  Cyclones 37, Cowboys 31.  And then we rushed the field!  It was so amazing to be a part of something so big, so exciting!  I was there for thee biggest win in school history!  Everyone hugging, high-fiving, and singing "Sweet Caroline."  Sweet, sweet victory. 

Check out this video of thousands upon thousands of Cyclones "storming" the field of Jack Trice Stadium!  Total awesomeness.  :)  This will be a moment I'll never forget, one of the highlights of my college days. 

Go Cyclones!!

I left the game early because I was freezing and had to finish packing for break- I'm kicking myself for that now! haha. Luckily I could see it on espn but still. So glad you got to experience it though- GO CYCLONES! :)


DIY Cat Barrier for Under $100 (See-Through, Climb-Proof, and Too-Tall-To-Jump)

ICYMI: I gave up Cotton after deciding that after trying so many things, my two adopted cats Dahlia and Cotton were just never going to get along. Long story short: I missed her. And Cotton's back. And Dahlia's not going anywhere. My heart is big enough to keep trying. And my apartment is big enough that if I need to keep them separated long term (or permanently), it can be done.
I'm going to write-up a separate post about some of the solutions I've tried, how they worked, who they worked on, and what I'll be trying next. But in this post, I wanted to share the main 'piece de resistance' of having both cats in my apartment: an un-climbable, un-jumpable, see-through barrier to separate Cotton and Dahlia.

Aniela, a lovely reader from Germany, sent me an email requesting advice on recreating the style of Penny's apartment on Big Bang Theory. 

Aria's Room | Pretty Little Liars Decor

Welcome back for LU's 2nd room in the PLL series!  Today you're getting a glimpse into my favorite room on the show... Aria's room.  Aria Montgomery is the artistic, imaginative, bookworm of the bunch.  So it's no surprise that her room has an artsy, historic, romantic eclecticism atmosphere.  Plus, it's full of books.  My two words for Aria's attic space: Vintage Eclectic.  (Those happen to be my two favorite decorating words... so brace yourself for my soon-to-come swooning.)
