How I'm Preparing for Football Season

Jared got a sports magazine in the mail yesterday with an article titled "Football. Finally." I wanted to screem, "Eeeeeek!" while terrible motions of gnashing and wailing of teeth were pictured in my mind.

This guide can be used to help you too if you husband is an addict. Here are a couple of items I’ve penciled in for the many great Monday nights and Saturdays to come:

01. Learn how to sew by making a blanket with Grandma. I’ve never touched a sewing machine before in my life, and even more pathetically I’ve never attempted to attach a button to a shirt! When I'm in a bind Grandma is always available to help out. Thank you Grandma for being the wonderful seamstress you are! I’m going for the Anthropologie bedspread type pick-stitch look (see fabric swatches below). I think it’s adorable with all of the fun colors and patterns! Now, I just need to cross my fingers and hope this learning curve is a little better than the cooking one was to me.


02. Create a wedding album. We are nearly one year after the fact, and there isn’t much organization to the matter. I have collected pics from all of my family, and we did a reshoot with the photographer. Now, I need to decide how to compile all of the pics and turn the album into my wedding memory book to have forever. Ideas?

03. Become a yoga master. When I’m back in Provo I’m going back to yoga. I want to practice, practice, practice so I can get really good. Other benefits include me being more relaxed. I have a tendency to be intense and stress about everything, especially school, and yoga really takes it down a notch for me and makes me relax. Namaste. (picture hands pressed together in prayer formation with head bowing)

04. Be a loving and supportive wife by joining Jared at BYU games. It's fun to be part of the huge student body, and our college days are definitely winding down. I'll sport my white and blue and cheer for the cougars of BYU!

Sidenote: Work has been insanely dull, and I have done absolutely nothing at the office this entire week. Hence, you're reading all of my many blog posts. I finish in the office today and tomorrow the interns are going kayaking for the day. Sigh of relief. The internship officially ends tomorrow. And to top it all off, Jared is in Cali this whole week. I pick him up at the airport tonight. His flight conveniently lands during the women's gymnastics all-around olympic event. I'm debating having him take a cab home. What a mean wife!

I have thoroughly enjoyed reading about your fabulously pampered intern life this summer. But I must say, I am excited for the Lishes to be back in UTah!

Football season can't be worse than watching Nascar. its usually 4 hours long, round and round in circles, lots of red necks... its awful.

are those real fabric swatches? If so where did you get them? so adorable.

The Lishes' said...

Yes, those fabrics are from http://www.purlsoho.com/purl/products/fabric. Purl Soho sales tons of really hip designs. I love browsing the site. Their fabrics are a large improvement on what can be found at a typical fabric store.
