Whoop Whoop! This is three times in one week! Bet you’re sick of me already, right? Hahaha! Too bad!!! So this post might not apply to all of you, but it’s something that is near and dear to my heart! Oregon Ducks Football. I’m sure you all have a favorite college sports team. Am I right? Well, mine happens to be the Oregon Ducks!! I actually attended the University of Oregon for awhile my freshman year. Oh how I miss Eugene!!! There’s just something special about Eugene that you can’t get anywhere else. There’s a ton of people wearing Birkenstocks, tree lovers, pot smokers, and . . . your likely to have your car stolen at least once if you live there for more than a few months. Hahaha. Okay, so those are slight exaggerations, but you get the idea. However, there’s one thing that brings everyone together. It’s Oregon Duck Football! I’ve never seen people bleed yellow and green until I moved there. The school spirit is phenomenal. It’s not just in Eugene either. Though the state may be divided since we also have another major university-there are more Duck fans than there are Beaver (Oregon State is the OTHER rival university) fans throughout the state (at least, that’s what I’d like to believe)!
My sister Jamie’s boyfriend, Josh (I’m the match maker behind this love connection) was celebrating his 27th birthday. Jamie wanted to throw Josh a really nice birthday party, but Josh kept changing his mind on what he wanted to do. Just 48 hours before the big event, the plans changed AGAIN! Jamie came to me for help and we had the task of throwing together a shotgun birthday party! Thankfully, I have a little party planning experience! Lucky for me, Josh is a HUGE Duck fan and Oregon Alumni. The plan the whole time was to watch the Oregon Duck game for his birthday party! The location was the only thing that kept changing. So, it was only natural to throw him a Duck’s Birthday party!!! I got to work designing fun Duck details. Guess what? You get to have them for FREE! Okay, so I know it’s not that cool if you’re not a Duck fan, but if you are, I hope you enjoy them!!!
Here are some photos from the party and your FREE PRINTABLES!

So. My husbands last-minute-couldn’t-decide-what-he-wanted birthday party is on Sat. I rented a room at a sports bar where we will be pre celebrating the Ducks game! I am doing an Oregon Ducks candy bar and just needed a little more inspiration, ala Pinterest of course. Boy oh boy is this perfect or what?! Thank you so much for sharing!!! – Edita
