Orange you glad to see me?

view out my window
Turns out my sister Siri is going to be with me through the rest of the week (thanks for the heads up sis).  I can't neglect the blogger machine for that long so I'm baaack.  The skies are blue and completely cloudless where I am right now but we're supposed to be getting rain from the storm this evening.  Thanks for all of your concern regarding the weather (and my sister for that matter)!

I'm crossing my fingers for a good weather day on Saturday because it's the opening game for Texas Longhorn football!  One of the things that I get ragged on, especially from my USC-fan cousins, is our "ugly" school colours - burnt orange and white.  But trust me, burnt orange looks good on EVERYONE, regardless of complexion.  If you're not ready to make the plunge and go head to toe burnt orange, good ol' rooth is here to ease you in slowly.  Below are a few ways that you can dip your toe into catching the burnt orange spirit.  Hook 'em Horns!

  1. Ah that's kinda awesome that your sis is staying with you for the rest of the week! :)
    And ahh, don't get me started on orange - my school's colors are orange and black. And when I say orange, I mean loud, look-at-me, freakin' orange. Not the biggest fan of it. I wish ours could be burnt orange instead! ^^;

  4. I'll take the salted caramel and the lovely jacket with plaid liner. I love anything with plaid! I wonder how long it will take before my daughter gets into the Longhorn fever. She's loving everything so far!

  7. YES, always...and glad you didn't say banana! :)

    I thought the straw was a Pixie stick, I'd take that and the salted caramel.

    UMD has nice colors, Fear the Turtle!!! LOL, now if they could actually play good football. They play a local Division II school on Saturday. They may actually have a chance to win that one.

    I wish I were an orange fan, however it's often bland black and grey for me.

  15. I absolutely LOVE burnt orange. Love. ♥ (just in case you weren't getting the drift). Sigh.

    Also, for the record, BSU colors are spastic orange + spastic blue. It's a bit painful . . .

  24. September kicks my butt, so I have a lot of catching up to do. However. As a Tennessee Vol fan (ahem), I can agree that orange looks good on everyone. As long as it's Chrysanthemum Orange. Great collection, but go Vols!

  25. Uh, I beg to differ, burnt orange is a beautiful color, as illustrated by your great round up. Cardinal paired with gold is nothing to write home about. ;)
