Weekend wrap up

Last night was a big game, Tech vs. Number 2 Texas.... at Texas...

I wasn't sure what was going to happen. I mean here we are just two games into the season and we have such a huge game before us. We have a new quarterback who is just settling in. We had to travel to Austin where 100,000+ fans would be rooting for us to lose. The Longhorns have been wanting revenge since last year when we beat them in Lubbock when they were Number 1 in the country. As I said, I didn't know what to expect, but I knew that all of this could be a recipe for disaster!

I'm very happy to report that it wasn't a disaster! We lost, yes, but only by 10 points. We kept trailing by 7 points the whole game, but then they scored another 3 right at the end. Also, that 7 points we were trailing wasn't "really a touchdown" but a punt ran back for 7. Yes, it is a touchdown on the scoreboard, but you know what I mean, it was kind of a fluke deal. Anyway, I'm very proud of my team because if they can go into hostile territory and play that well against the Number 2 team in the country, then I think we have a great season ahead (I hope).

Oh! I almost forgot... I got this really cute yard flag at Sample House this week and it was 20% off!

Other than watching the game, I have been trying to get this mess of a house back in order this weekend. It was again looking like it had been vandalized! At this point it is pretty straight, now I just need to do some cleaning today. More specifically, Lola has decided to take advantage of allergy season and steal kleenex from the trash cans and then shred them all over the house. It looks like a snow storm has descended on my house, so much vacuuming is needed! I did complete 7 loads of laundry yesterday, so I'm glad that chore is behind me.

This week is T.V. Premier week. Some have already premiered. Two weeks ago we got new "90210" and the new series "Melrose Place". Then last week we finally got a new "Gossip Girl" and "The Office"!!! Aaahhhh...oh how I love Gossip Girl! Tonight are the prime time Emmy's and then this week is the biggie premier week, so under my List of the week, I'm going to highlight the premiers I'm excited about. The plan is to change it every day, so don't forget to check it out starting tomorrow.

I was so worried about the game- I seriously thought we might loose by 40. It almost felt like a win I was so happy.

Love the flag. Very cute.
