Saturday morning, despite the rain, Rebecca and I got all dressed up in our Spiders team colors and set off to Robins Stadium to tailgate before the big game.  We had it all planned out- we brought tons of pink cups and coupons to giveaway, and packed the quintessential tailgate foodies. But when we pulled up to the lot and were asked to present our pass, the blank stares on our faces said it all- defeat. We asked if there was a way to obtain a pass just for the day and the long and short of it was simply "No." There must have been some fine print overlooked on our behalf, but we didn't give up. We forged our way around, and around, and around and around campus (which is very pretty, btw) until we had talked to every person in a yellow shirt about where we could potentially set up our little satellite pink station. We decided that unless we could be in the "cool" lots, our mission would not be accomplished. So we left. 

Don't worry though, we'll try again! But in the meantime, we have tons of coupons and cups to give away! Not to mention, our raffle prize has increased in value, so stop by and enter to win a $200 gift certificate!!!

...and we're back!!

I am SO embarrassed that our last post was almost TWO months ago!! Where does the time go?!

Well, fear not- we're back in action now (especially since I just got my new laptop in the mail this week- thanks Rebecca!!).  We've been busy transitioning into Fall, which officially started this morning at 5:05- funny, seeing how its 80 degrees still! But you wouldn't be able to tell inside the store- it's full of fabulous sweaters, to-die-for boots and perfect party dresses. So if you haven't stopped in, please do..and we'll put an order in for the weather to change!

In other news, Rebecca and I will be braving the rain tomorrow morning at Robins Stadium, joining thousands of U of R students and their families for a good, old fashioned tailgate. If you're in the area, stop by and sign up for our raffle and say hi...and remember to wear your red and blue!! GOOOOO Spiders!!
