School Spirit

It’s that time of year…FOOTBALL season!  I so enjoy watching college football probably since my alma mater is the University of Arkansas, and we love our HOGS!  And there is always an excuse to have new front door decor!  Last year, I decided to make my own Hogs to put on our front door to show some school spirit.  And in Hog country, we like to adopt fans who may not have attended the University a.k.a Handyman Husband.  I went to work and here is the result…



My family will be in a “Big Fat Greek Wedding” at the end of September (future post!).  My husband is the Koumbaro which means “sponsor” in the Greek Orthodox Church.  As a gift to the men in the wedding party, the couple gave concrete painted Razorbacks.  When they brought it over, they were hesitant because they didn’t know what I’d think…I loved it!  It’s a great addition to the school spirit this year.  Here he is…

Although our beloved Hogs will officially be starting their season tomorrow, I showed my school spirit early this year (like two weeks ago) probably because our new addition was in the dining room, and it was time to find him a home.

Luckily, we have the side door next to our garage which means another place to feature “door decor!”

I painted this last year as well.

As for more school spirit, there is our great neighborhood elementary school that we are so proud to attend.  Last year while on the PTA Board, I presented the idea of “spirit signs.”  (I have such fond memories of my own elementary days growing up in Dallas, and we always displayed our Lake Highlands Wildcat spirit!)  Luckily, the idea was approved, and now we show our Falcon pride!

It’s all in the details…Handyman Husband refurbished the school’s basketball backboards last year.  Love how they turned out.

It was completely his idea to add the falcon and the orange detail.  Originally, they were all white.

So what team/school will you be supporting this football season?
