Friday Mishmash

So, first of all ... wow.  Just checked out the new Blogger and it's kinda rocking my world a little bit!  As in, I am really confused and stuff.  But I like it, I think!  I think.  Hmm.

Anyway, I am finishing up my second week at work and I still love it.  It's seriously fabulous.  I love being on campus, and have figured out the bus situation a little bit better - now I take the bus from our apartment, and I don't have to drive at all!  Very exciting stuff.  Really.  :)  My office still looks as sad as it did last week, but I think Matt and I will be heading on campus this weekend to change all of that.  Stay tuned for photos of my new decorated office sometime next week!

In other news, I haven't been sewing as much as I would like (and must remedy that) but I did work on a little craft fun for Oscar recently.  I don't remember why exactly, but I was talking with Lisa online about something related to dogs, and I was on Etsy so I searched for "husky" to see what kind of fun handmade husky gear I could find.  Well, amazingly enough, one crazy thing popped up.  It turned out to be a digital image I could buy for $1 and then use for ... well, whatever.  It was so incredibly that I snatched it right up, swung by Hobby Lobby, and grabbed a canvas tote bag and some iron on transfer paper.  And the result?  Is kind of amazing.

Hmmm.  Let's take a closer look, shall we?

Seriously.  I don't know who thinks something like this up (oh wait, yes I do - I picked this bad boy up from Graphique), but it is spec-tac-u-lar.  It's a husky.  With a crown.  And wings.

No, I don't understand.  Yes, it looks almost exactly like Oscar.  No, Oscar doesn't really need his own tote bag.  Although yes, he does pack a bag when he goes to stay with Mamaw and Papaw.

So yes.  Clearly it was necessary.  I find it absolutely hilarious and often look at it hanging in the closet and giggle.

Anyway - I can't believe we're already at Labor Day weekend!  And I can't believe it's September.  We don't have any plans this weekend, besides watching college football and babysitting sweet baby Madeline.  What about you?
