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 .

Penny's Apartment | Big Bang Theory

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

Blair's Room | Gossip Girl Decor

Manhattan's debutante Blair Waldorf happens to be my favorite Gossip Girl character.  Her behavior and feelings vary from snobbish to sensitive, but she always (except for a few rare occasions) looks and acts totally pulled together.  Her luxurious bedroom is fit for a queen---and is as pulled together as her preppy fashion ensembles.
