Governors Cup, Invitations, & Fall At The Hall's

Saturday we [myself, Marcus, Nathan, Rachel, my sister Paige, and Eric] made the 2 1/2 hour trek to Lexington to watch our beloved Cats play Louisville in the Governors Cup. My mom kept Georgia Grace for us so we could go. I can't wait to take her to games with us but I just don't think she's ready yet.

The last time we both went together to watch the Cats play in Commonwealth Stadium we upset Spurrier and the Gamecocks so we were hoping we were their good luck charm.

We weren't ;(. Oh well, we had a blast and UK looked much improved from week 1 & 2. It's going to get exciting in a few years when "Stoops Troops" take over the program. We are faithful fans! A day in blue is better than any day in [Louisville] red :)

WKU lost Saturday too :(. A bad football weekend in these parts!

One of my favorite things about the game was when the UK and UL bands joined together to play "My Old Kentucky Home". A good reminder that it's just a game and we should be proud of our state regardless of what team we root for.

After the game we headed to a hole-in-the-wall restaurant Bourbon n' Toulouse to have some cajun food with Lexington friends. Then we headed home to our baby who we missed a lot.

Saturday night after we got home from the game and Marcus and GGH went to bed I finished the birthday party invitations. I'm pretty proud of how they turned out. I wanted pink, pumpkins, and a princess feel all rolled into one invite. It was my first time using a new editing program so I learned, added, and changed as I went. Only six short weeks!
Sunday night we went to eat supper and for the men to do some shooting at my sister and brother-in-law's farm. I forgot to take pictures of us until it was time to go but I snapped this of her mantel. How cute is this?!? Her house is adorably decorated for fall. I think I will hire her out to come do mine ha! Although seeing how Georgia destroyed rearranged their decorations I'm not sure how much I will put up this year. She can clear a table of knick knacks in 5 seconds flat. Awesome.

It was a fun weekend. The weather was perfection. Hope your weekend was great too! 


  1. I love your invitations!! What program did you use to make them?
