Weekend Recap

After a very busy couple of weeks at work, things finally calmed down enough where I could take a day off - so I did. I had hopes of getting things done that I have been putting off, but I decided to just be lazy (after waking up at 5:45 to go walking).  I caught up on my shows and blogs, and just relaxed - and it was so refreshing not to do anything that required usage of my mind! hehe  It was totally worth using a vacation day!

Saturday, my friend Jenni and I headed up to Eugene to go see the Oregon Ducks play Arizona - we headed up early so we could do some shopping, bigger city, a lot better stores - we had to take advantage! I loved Charlotte Russe, I had never been in one before. Jewelry: 2 for $10! That is my kind of store!! I ended up buying 2 pairs of earrings, 2 necklaces, and a pretty blue scarf.  I also got a black sweater from Forever 21 - and boyfriend sweatpants from Victoria Secret Pink.  After some retail therapy, we headed over to check into our hotel to refresh and get ready for the 7:30 game.

Who doesn't love a good bargain?!

These are seriously the best sweatpants ever!

This time we opted to take the bus shuttle to the game so we wouldn't have to look for parking that was outrageously priced and 2 miles away from the stadium - and sit in traffic for a couple hours after the game.  I am completely for the bus shuttle, and will definitely be using it in the future.  And the location was so close to our hotel! Major Bonus.

The game was great - Oregon swept Arizona 49-0! It was a good game, despite the rain! ; )  I wish I could go to every game, I just love the atmosphere. 

Mega Fan!

A little rain didn't stop us having fun!!!

Love this pic of us! 

After a late night we were happy we could sleep in on Sunday.  After we got ready and packed up , we had breakfast at IHOP - seriously delicious, I wish we had one here in Medford.  Before leaving Eugene we hit up the other mall and found some cute red heels for work and some more Oregon Duck stuff (license plate frames, magnet, scrap booking stickers, etc.).  We decided to stop at the Casino on the way home as well.  It was a nice break in the middle of driving.  I walked in telling myself I would only use $20... well I played for about an hour and ended up leaving with $18. So, I only lost $2 not too bad, and I was up to $38 at one point - I know, I am such a high roller with the penny and nickel machines! hehehe.  It was nice to get away for a couple days, but its always great to be back home!

I finally gave into my craving  this morning and got a Pumpkin Spice Latte from Starbucks, it didn't disappoint.  It totally hit the spot. So Good. It made my Monday Morning that much better.  Because we all know, Monday Mornings can always be better.

I also enjoyed getting these pictures of my beautiful niece Sydney over the weekend from my best friend Sasha - I love getting these - the completely make my day so much better.  Keep 'em coming!

Love this cute little face!!! 
Miss Sydney looks adorable as always!

Love her shirt - and HER!!! Oh, and I miss her like crazy too.
