2 Chickens, The Ducks, and a dog...

First off I wanted to share my New Years Day pictures! Matt and I wandered over to At&t park in San Fran!
McCovey Cove!

Out in front of AT&T park... You are welcome Giants!!

Its beginning to look a lot like BCS Championship time!! Eugene is bustling with pride and I have seen some fun things around town to celebrate Duck Football!! As you all know I am a huge Duck fan and a season ticket holder, It pains me that I am not going to be in Arizona for the game because of work! :(

HOWEVER! I am pretty excited that I will be in Eugene for the big game!! 

Little Gracie bear is PRETTY excited!!

The Bakery case at our local gourmet market... The best bakery in town! 

This is just ridiculous...

Flowers and Balloons!!
How awesome is this?? Printing this on a t-shirt for next season for sure!!

SO! Other than gearing up for the big game... I have been cooking up a storm! Matt and I went to game night at his Boss's house last night and I made a pasta bake of Penne, alfredo sauce, pesto sauce, roasted garlic, parmesan, white cheddar cheese, and mozzarella...

It was one of the best things I have ever made!!

I also made garlic crusted roast chicken... so easy and delish!!

Since my birthday is coming up this week... my mom has treated me to a few fun things for my apartment!

Koi fish painting for my bathroom!

Also she bought me those super cute elephant book ends due to the large number of coobooks on my counter! It has gotten out of control! She also bought me the cute ceramic polka dot chicken... which really ties my kitchen together!

Thats my update for now!!

While Euegne is amazing... it lacks a little in the home decor department (with the exception of my shop of course... which is probably why we have managed to survive in a bad economy- eugene has NOTHING) However we have a really good TJ Maxx! The actually carry all the good denim brands, really nice furniture, Laguiole knives, Le Creuset stoneware, Sferra Bedding! Anyway... That is where my mom found those book ends.

Now dont let that shy you away from moving here! We have some great clothing stores and portland is not too far away and it has EVERYTHING! And Yes Go ducks! :) Even if they lost... there is always next year!
