Happy Sunday everyone!  I’m not normally a huge sports fan, but I have to say that I am really looking forward to a day of good football today!  I was born and raised in the Seattle area so it is pretty exciting to see my hometown team doing so well this year!  You can tell I’m really getting excited when I start a new football themed Pinterest board! 😉

In the meantime, be sure to check out all the great posts from Thrifty Thursday!  There were SO many great ideas to choose from this week, which made it very difficult to pick favorites.  In the end, these are the ones I loved!
