Orange You Glad You Are A Cowboy?

Here is one of my all time favorite sites from homecoming.  I love that every homecoming week the library fountain turns orange.  How spectacular does that look?  It is just a sight to see, perfect for pictures and just all around happy.

Homecoming has come and gone for another year.  It is just sad that we (as in students) start planning a year in advance for the next one.  Soo much time and effort is put into homecoming.  Don't get me wrong, I did not put a lot of effort into this years house decoration but I feel like I have done my part, no matter what anyone else has to say about it. Don't mind my rant--For crying out loud I am graduating in less than 60 days, can you see why I have zero motivation to do anything that involves my sorority?  I have way more important things going on, like trying to find a job.  Anyways,  I hold homecoming near and dear to my little heart.  I am just ready for the campus to go back to normal and town to slow down.  The only thing that upset me a little bit about this past week, Starbucks was a zoo!  It took me way too long to get my daily caffeine fix, just saying.


I did happen to have the perfect opportunity for the most wonderful picture.  If you know me at all, you know that I am an extreme girlie girl.  The AGR/Theta house dec was just that, on one side of it anyways.  They had Mrs. Potato head, lots of flowers, OPI nail polish and lipstick!  How perfect is that?  It was also nice to see all of my old friends that now have big kid jobs come back to their "home."  I just realized that no matter where I end up going for my job or what I do, Oklahoma State will always be my "home."

Step 1) Dip fried okra into ranch!

Step 2) Chew, Chew, Chew, waiting on the verdict.
Step 3) Thumbs up! Excellent side choice

Ohh!  If you follow me on twitter (Lindseyll for those of you who don't) you noticed my twit pic from Saturday.  I made friends with a few Nebraska fans at Bad Brad's BBQ here is town.  The original is in my hometown so I am a little obsessed/crazy about this place.  It was an hour fifteen min wait...needless to say I had time to make friends.  After this chit-chat about the game, we got to talking about food and giving them my expert advice.  They told me they have never had fried okra in their life.  I almost fell over into my grave at that moment.  I told them they had to try their fried okra and get some ranch dressing to dip it in, that makes all of the difference, believe me!  So after they all got their food I went over to their table and wanted to see if they did, in fact, get okra with ranch dressing.  Guess what?  Every single one of them did!  It was priceless!  They were amazing with the taste!  I asked them if I could take a picture for my blog and they all started laughing hysterically, we made a scene...I am okay with it, though.

Breaking news--It is my birthday week!  So get out your stamps and Hallmark cards!  I'll be waiting by my mailbox!
