Black Monday

Today is the worst day in college football. Today is the day the AD's decide who will no longer be their football coach. I'm still trying to decide who feels it the worse...spouses or children. (nothing is worse than feeling like no one likes or appreciates your dad, your hero!)

I didn't want to watch any tv or read any sports pages/sites because I knew what was coming: firings.

The only thing I keep telling myself is that everything happens for a reason.

My heart goes out to everyone who had a rough time today...keep your chin up and hold your head high. I know it hurts now but it will get better.

Oh, and if anyone is rude about it...send them my way. Sally from Berkeley can make a cameo.


Back tomorrow with a classic outfit post.

Football Season Necessities

Football Necessities

1. Hair curlers...you need big hair to cheer your team on, duh! (along with a teasing comb and hairspray)
2. Sunglasses...so you can see everything
3. Wine (or other adult beverage of choice) used to tailgate, celebrate a win or calm yourself after a loss
4. Jeans (if you're above N. Carolina...otherwise a sundress is a necessity)
5. Purse that can hold any and everything (coozies, shades, wine bottle [if necessary], lip gloss and cell phone)
6. Cell phone to check scores from around the country
7. Mascara...because who can leave home without it!
8. Confidence...I couldn't find a pic for this but you definitely need it throughout the season. Always hold your head high and stay confident in your team.
9. Lucky charm (be it necklace, morning routine or nail polish color)...I'm guilty of all three :)
10. Something cute in your teams' colors...OBVI!

Hope you all enjoy the rest of your gamedays...leave me a comment with who you cheer the hardest for...I want to know!  XO

Cleaning out the closet...

In hopes that it will magically turn into one of these...

And just because I found this coinciding with "closets" on Pinterest...
Happy Monday Everyone!

Warm and fuzzy

Great weekend...I love when great things happen to people you love.  Two of the people I love the most in this world had great weekends...a big W for BT and an awesome date for a bff.  It makes me warm and fuzzy inside to know that these two had great and much-deserved things happen to them.  It's way more fun to see others get what they so deserve because you know how much it means.
Speaking of happy, here's a quote that always makes me smile!

Cheers to the 2011 Dartmouth Football Season!

Look what I made

I went home and wanted to change some things around...what do you think?!

My Alter Ego

I realized that I've never introduced you all to my alter-ego, also known as Sally from Berkley!  Long story short, the name comes from a pseudonym I was given after calling into a radio show that was bashing my dad back at Stanford.  I called in, told them who I was (head coach's kid) and proceeded to rip them up one side and down the other as random caller "Sally from Berkley".
Sally from Berkley has a friend...who is very similar aka coach's kid

Sally comes out mostly during football season.  I know that I've made a few comments about football on here but I try to keep it relatively tame (Sally has been known to go overboard).  She gets very upset when people begin questioning her dad's job, when people make snide remarks about games/calls/plays/qb choices etc.  She gets especially angry when people say these things and don't know what they're talking about.
How could you not want to protect this guy! He rocks (and I know he can protect himself just fine too but c'mon).
 This season has been okay...we've had our ups and downs but luckily Sally has remained mostly in check.  That said, an interesting article popped up in the New York Times that piqued Sally's interest.  It basically talks about a coach who had the nerve to say that he won a Rhodes Scholarship/Interview....but turns out that wasn't exactly the case. 

I'm sure you're wondering...why would Lindsay, much less this Sally person, care about such a thing.  Here's your reason...Sally once got upset at that very person for publicly (and privately) bashing her dad (who had given him a job once).  Not cool. Ever.  I can hold a grudge longer than almost anyone I know (character flaw...poor hubby).

Let's just say that Sally had a freaking field day when she read this. Oh and Newsflash...probably not the best idea to lie about a Rhodes Scholarship when you work at Yale...you know, where tons of people really have won them.  Ticking smart, powerful people off like that is not a smart move (probably why you didn't get one of those scholarships...just sayin')!

Back to regular stuff tomorrow...promise.

getting into the spirit....

This past week I've been browsing my fav site (pinterest duh) for holiday decor inspiration and viola!  Here's what I'm digging....

As you can tell, I'm really into glass jars/glass hurricanes etc.  I even went so far as to look through the millions of POS things at Pier One to put in mine at home and found nothing!  Then I found the photo of the candles in the mason jars filled with epsom salt and I thought "Aha!" that's what I'll do!  I'm also going to do my best to incorporate some horns into these displays to make hubby happy (and to also be creative)...pics to come when I get around to putting this stuff together.

sorry for the lack of post...I'm really busy watching back episodes of Greys anatomy with my mom and the dog...I know, I'm pretty cool.

How'd you all like little ugly Betty in her poncho?

Happy Monday!

Today started off great then got a little trying...so instead of ranting on the blog about how sucky the coaching profession is, I'm going to name the top 3 things I'm thankful for...(crossing my fingers that it will re-direct where my heads at)

1. My family.  I have a great hubby (who puts up with my 'tude about football etc.), an awesome mom/dad/brother and extended family who I love dearly.  In fact, mom and I had a fab time in Boston yesterday just doing a little shopping and generally just spending time together.
Plus sometimes you just need this:

2. Lucy the dog.  I love this dog so much...she got a new "poncho"/"sweater" this weekend from Amy and hubby and I have been calling her Ugly Betty all day (check it out & sorry for the glare)

3. My health...we had a minor scare last year with the random incident but since then I've been grateful for my health each and every day...and try to remember that when I get caught up thinking of minor things.

Golden Anniversary!

Thursday funnies

For some reason I've had quite a few laughs today...at my own expense of course...here's why:
1. I was dancing during my tennis lesson, rolled my ankle and fell down- don't worry, I'm not hurt
2. After prior fall, I got hit in the eye socket with a volley- now its red and swollen...bummer
3. I went onto textsfromlastnight.com for way too long...and laughed way too hard.

Hope you all are having fun/funny days too! Xo

Sad and funny at the same time

So we had a minor situation at the Knittle house on Monday evening...allow me to set the stage.

Hubby and I were talking upstairs when I hear the footsteps of little Lucy climbing the stairs.  I see her head pop out from the stairwell and take her first step almost on the landing when...BOOM...boom...boom....all the way down.  Lu lost her footing on the wood floors, slipped and hit every single stair all the way down to the bottom.

I immediately began to cry and ran down to see how she was!  There she is (bless her little heart) shaking and trembling gazing up at me with her big brown eyes.
In her wedding outfit
I gently picked her up, checked her for injuries and brought her into bed with me....where I kept a vigil all night whenever she would move or breath loudly (I was very concerned about internal bleeding).  The next morning I carried her downstairs and she seemed okay...did a lot of this:

The really sad thing happened today when she went over to grandma's house and refused to go up or down stairs of any kind.  I guess I hadn't noticed because I'd been just picking her up and carrying her for the past few times.  Apparently she wouldn't climb stairs inside or outside...she even got thrown a ball that went downstairs and she saw where it went and ran in the other direction!

We may need a dog therapist...she seems very upset about all of this.  She wouldn't even go up two stairs to the bank this afternoon!

The little diva...she practically had a nervous breakdown...what am I to do!  I also can't seem to get that poor picture of her almost getting to the top of the stairs out of my head.  We trimmed her feet (which is what caused the problem) but she's still terrified.  I only hope that my children (when I have them in many years) don't fall down the stairs like that!  So everyone...I hope that this little story/crisis brought a smile to your face :)  Happy Hump Day XO

Ladies Night Out

Ladies Night Out

So tomorrow night I have a "ladies night out" and I'm choosing to call it "ladies" rather than girls because it's actually a group of coach's wives who I'm just tagging along with.  Pretty much I'm the coolest person they know so they figured they should invite me along...JK!  I'm totally joining in because I need some social interaction.  Hunting season makes me feel like a hermit who lives out in the middle of nowhere...Alone!  So naturally I'm jumping on any and every social opportunity that comes my way...anything to get me out of the house and out of my workout clothes!

Hope you are all having great weeks so far...and if you feel like it, link up and show me what you'd wear for Ladies Night Out!  XO

ps. hubby shot his deer tonight Thank the lord...although according to him that doesn't mean that hunting season is over.

Have you...or do you...

Ever have "wti"...aka White Trash Issues?!  I'm currently having a root issue, as in, my blonde hair isn't quite so blonde right now.

I'm having a "britney moment"

Check this out...

It's only been 4 weeks!  Oh, and please pardon the lack of makeup and seriously pale skin...not my best look I know.
What do you all think of this hair for winter?
too dark or just right?
So there you are peeps...I am white-trashing out in full-force.  Oh, and do yourselves a favor- NEVER EVER google "white trash"...what you see on there will scar you forever.

Happy Humpday Peeps! XO
