Miscellany Monday

Miscellany Monday @ lowercase letters

It's Monday again?

-I really, really need to go get my tag today. It expires tomorrow, and it's a Tennessee tag. I kept meaning to go the past few weeks, but between snow, and then the really nice days, I just didn't want to go.

-Today is my one of my best friend's birthday. HAPPY BIRTHDAY, ELIZABETH! She doesn't know it yet, but she's getting a pretty sweet gift today from me and the G sisters.

-We watched Hall Pass Saturday night. So funny! It's disgusting, but hilarious!

-So, I'm pregnant. Yup. 12 weeks. Get excited. I'm due September 10. I have a little pooch at the moment and, well, I've never had a pooch before. We told our parents 2 weeks ago and just started telling friends on Saturday. It was kind of a fun secret that Nate Dawg and I were keeping. Now it's weird that we're actually saying it.

Fill in the Blank Friday

1. I am currently obsessed with making my own egg mcmuffins. I've been getting up and poaching eggs, toasting english muffins, adding cheese and canadian bacon for Nate and myself. It's a good way to start the day off!

2. Today I am happy because, it's Friday. Fridays make me happy.

3. The age I am is 27 and the age I feel is probably that age. I don't really think about it.

4. My favorite place is my parents' house. My mom cooks for me and it smells the same way it has since I grew up there.

5. Something I have been procrastinating is finishing unpacking. I still have some boxes to open and unpack and I just don't wanna.

6. The last thing I purchased was coffee stuff to make egg mcmuffins. haha

7. The thing I love most about my home is the kitchen. These are pics from before we bought the house. And no, I haven't taken pics since we moved in. Sue me.

So What Wednesday


This week I'm saying SO WHAT to...

-The mass amount of Easter candy I've already eaten. I eat breakfast and grab a handful of cadbury mini eggs.
-I generally go back for a second or third handful. After breakfast. I have issues.
-I finally bought Uggs, and the weather warmed up. Go figure.
-I'm terrible at responding to facebook messages. So don't message me. I look at it on my phone and never respond.
-I went to the gynosaurus on Monday. I've been poked, proded, and violated. Sometimes being a woman can be uncomfortable.
-I miss my peeps in Tennessee somethin awful.
Katie mentioned yesterday on twitter, "only in williamson county can u see mazeratis driving by signs that spell Garage Sail."

Williamson County is where we lived, and then that made me want to cry bc I just miss it.

Top 2 Tuesday

Top 2 Tuesday...things you've learned from your parents or grandparents.

1. A couple who prays together stays together.
Nuff said.

2. Laugh.
Why take things so seriously? Life is a good time.

My parents celebrated their 35th wedding anniversary on February 7. I like to think they know what they're talkin about. :)

Miscellany Monday

Miscellany Monday @ lowercase letters

It's been a while since I've done this. Here goes:

-Nate's grandmother died about a week and 1/2 ago. We spent much of last week in Hot Springs, Arkansas for her rosary/funeral. She had cancer for 5 years, so she is pain free now. All is well.

-We left Tulsa on our way to Hot Springs and like 30 miles later we had a flate tire. Nate's mom and I were standing on the side of the highway watching Nate and his brother change the tire. Pictures? Of course I took pictures!

-Less than 20 minutes and we were back on the road!

-I cannot believe it's almost March. March-May are my favorite months ever. Mostly because it's not too hot, not too cold. Plus I love Easter candy.

-Did someone mention Easter candy?

-1 bag is totally gone. Good thing I have 2 other bags. And I just heard that Sam's sells them in bulk. I'ma get me some.

-I "played" golf with Nate Friday. I rode around with him in the cart while he played 9 holes of speed golf. It was so nice outside and he wanted to play for a bit before it got dark.

-I cannot find golf balls. Like, when you hit it and you watch it to see where it goes. No clue. I can NEVER find it. I watch as someone hits the ball, and then I have no idea where it ends up. I've got issues.

-My cousin, Ryan (who's Native), gave me some ha-pah-shu-tse mix. That's "red corn" in Osage. Anywho, you can make fry bread, donuts, dumplings, pancakes, whateva with this stuff. It's like native Bisquik. Only better. His family makes/distributes it.

-Annnnddd here's a pic of Norman watching the ducks outside. Precious!

-OH! And my friend Mallory got engaged this wknd! Nate Dawg and I introduced her to her fiance. Don't worry, we've given ourselves a pat on the back. :)

Fill in the Blank Friday

1. I am a wife, a daughter, a sister, a mama to Norman, sarcastic, witty (or at least I like to think so), athletic, and at the moment EXHAUSTED.

2. The bravest thing I've ever done was probably go to court for one of my students. I got him out of his mom's house. It was not a safe environment.

3. I feel prettiest when I've just had a facial. I feel like my skin is glowing. And I'm just plain happy after having one. A facial that is.
4. Something that keeps me awake at night is hearing a weird noise. Or having a bad dream. Or having to pee a lot because I was really thirsty before bed.

5. My favorite meal in the entire world is ooohhh...a good cheese pizza with garlic. or garlic chicken pasta. I heart garlic.
6. The way to my heart is through garlic. or red velvet.

7. I would like to join my friends back in TN.

All You Need is LOVE Day 6

I {LOVE} to blog because....

Well, so I don't really love my blog. It's ok. I actually started it because I was blog stalking so many people. Then they would ask where my blog was, and I didn't want to seem like a super stalker creepy person, so I started one to prove I existed.

Sometimes it's fun to play along with these things. But sometimes it's not so fun. I would probably be WAY more into it if I worked in front of a computer. I was a teacher, now I'm a personal assistant. So I do a ton of running around. Not much sitting. When I get home at night, there's generally so much going on (in my head) that I forget to blog.

But, I do like it. It's fun. Quite a few friends have blogs. And I feel pretty trendy. I work for The Pioneer Woman, and I will never, ever have the amount of readers she gets. And I'm ok with that.

I sound like a real downer this Saturday morning. ha

Play along. Everyone is doing it.

All You Need is LOVE Day 5

What I {LOVE} about my friends is...

Most have been around a LONG time

That's me and my bff Brandi when we were 4 or 5.

They have cute kids
Brandi's baby Cailyn...
Liv's baby Cade...

Elizabeth's oldest baby Nonie...
And her newest baby Wylie...
And because they're always there for me AND they're pretty...

All You Need is LOVE Day 4

For Valentine's Day I {LOVE} to bake/cook... {share a recipe!}

Red Velvet Cookies. 

Red Velvet cake mix
Add 1/3 cup oil
Add 2 eggs
Mix like your Sir Mixalot. Bake at 375 for 8-10 minutes.

Frost with cream cheese frosting:
1 package cream cheese
1/2 cup butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 teaspoons milk
4 cups powdered sugar
Beat it all up like you're Chris Brown.

 They are so yummy. Especially with a cup of coffee. And they're super duper easy. 

I found this picture. Looks like you can make red velvet cookie sandwiches.
Don't mind if I do!

All You Need is LOVE Day 3

I'm finally caught up!

If I could travel anywhere this snowy February, I would {LOVE} to go...

St. Thomas.

 Nate Dawg and I went there on our honeymoon.

Or Hawaii. That looks much more appealing than the 18+ inches of snow that fell this morning in Oklahoma. 

Go to Neely's blog and play along!

All You Need is LOVE Day 2

When I'm feeling down, to cheer myself up I {LOVE} to..

Hang out with my bff's

You'd think it would be a lot easier to do since I finally live in the same state as these 3, but it hasn't happened as often as I'd like. 

Do some online shopping...
 And reminisce with friends from Tennessee...

All You Need is LOVE Day 1

I'm a little late on doing this. It started Monday. But I've had really, really important things to do. I'm kind of a big deal. Or I forgot. Whatev.

Day 1: 

When I need my me time I {LOVE} to...
Just like Britney Spears!
And Kate Hudson pre-pregnancy!

Fill in the Blank Friday

1. If I could only read one magazine publication for the rest of eternity, I would choose Self. Or Women's Health.

2. If I were to run my own magazine it would be a healthy magazine. Boring.

3. I buy my magazines (at the grocery check stand or via subscription) subscriptions. They are like a million dollars cheaper to do just do the subscription. AND they don't have to go into your grocery budget.

4. I prefer my magazines (in print or online) in print. That way you can take them into the bathroom. HAHA

5. The number of magazines I buy each month is just 4. Southern Living, Self, Women's Health and Shape.

6. My favorite magazine genre is (lifestyle, gossip, home, etc...) health. I heart gossip mags also.

7. The magazines I read regularly are Southern Living, Self, Women's Health and Shape.

So What Wednesday

So What Wednesday Thursday


This week I'm saying SO WHAT to...
~Doing posts on their designated days. So what if it's Thursday and I'm doing So What Wednesday? Don't judge.
~I'm not a fan of snow. I am no longer a teacher, so snow days to me are a mess. 
~My husband was in Albuquerque for work. He left Monday afternoon. His office has been closed in OK all week. He's been at a different office in Albuquerque. I wonder if he gets the snow days everyone else is getting while he's working?
~I'm snowed in at my parents' house. I like when my mom cooks for me.
~My parents were dressed in layers and shoveling the driveway. I was in my pj's. So what? 
~NO ONE is a good driver in ice/snow. I don't care what anyone says. You shouldn't be driving in it. Don't be stupid. 

Ok that's all I've got. What are you saying SO WHAT to?
