Weekened Shenanigans

I hope you all had a great weekend- I don't know about you but mine was way too short. Friday night Allison, her husband and I grabbed some awesome BBQ at Iron Starr- we used our Keep it local OK card and got a rockin discount! If you don't have one of these cards and you live in OKC you are missing out! I'm a girl who spends too munch money on shoes and every penny I can save eating out makes a dent in my shoe savings :) After the grub we headed over to the State Fair Arena and watched Oklahoma cowboys do their thing. I don't know about you but milking a wild cow is not on my everyday list of to do's- major kudos to all that participated and Thank You to the Oklahoma Cattemen Association for supporting Children's Miracle Network. We caught a glimpse of the Pioneer Woman and her cute punks. I think the highlight of the evening was the ice cream and cinnamon/sugar coated almonds we devoured.

Saturday I spent the day with mom and we went and watched Eat Pray Love. Great movie- perfect chick flick/inspirational movie for a hot Saturday afternoon. Sunday was spent at Church, Sorority Potato bar, and Sorority New Member Meeting. Looking forward to my four day weekend coming up- family time and stillwater to shoe bank for shoe shopping! That's all for now- Have a great week :)

Still obsessed

Allison over at allioppe and I are planning on doing some more stalking (don't worry nothing dangerous, just all in good fun) this evening! Can you guess who we'll be stalking?

Oh yes, The Pioneer Woman. I promise not to follow her in the bathroom this year. We first caught glance of her a year ago at the annual Oklahoma Cattlemen Association's Range Round Up. This event is held at the State Fair Arena and a portion of Friday and Saturday night proceeds will benefit Children's Miracle Network. We'll be grabbing some local BBQ then heading over to the arena to watch cowboys strut their stuff! Maybe this year I will meet my Marloboro man, a girl can hope, right?

Here's Allison and I last year- it's one of my favorite pictures of the two of us. Sorry for the quality- taken with my iphone.

Hope you all have a fabulous and safe weekend! I'll be tweeting from the Range Roundup and will post a followup soon!

Feeling Creative

I'm feeling creative again. I know I took a looonnnggg break from this thing but maybe I'm ready to start over.

Since I left you almost a year ago here's what I've been up to in no particular order:

*Another year has come and gone at Children's Miracle Network- I love it and am happy to be where I'm at!
*Winter was Cr-az-y- lots of snow meant lots of snow days!
*Parents remodeling/updating their house
* More Dating
*3 hard passings of college friend, close family friend, and CMN miracle Child
*Renewing my faith- getting back to church, being an active member, joining a biblestudy
* Roadtrip with Kristen to see Lynise in Muskogee
*Summer fun with Little
*Good times with Family & Friends

Hopefully I can keep this thing up & share my thoughts!

The Pioneer Woman Cooks

I want to apologize for being a slacker blogger and not writing sooner. I could give you excuses but who wants to hear those? Anyhoo, on to the good stuff...

My PW partner in crime Allison and I met up at 50 Penn Place Full Circle Books to see The Pioneer Woman and more importantly buy her book and get it autographed. We got there about 5:00 PM, PW wasn't going to start signing books till about 6:30. We were right outside the door and not too far back considering. We chatted and bonded with fellow PW followers and when 6:30 came out the line was all the way to the other side of the large mall and curving along one of the back hallways. Thank goodness we got there early! The adorable girls of Marlboro man and Pioneer woman came out and greeted the crowd- took some pics and even signed some books (I got mine signed-they were so sweet)! It was great seeing the whole fam there even her sister Betsy her cute nephew were there!

While waiting in line I ran into my good friend Kym's mom Pam, who is a fellow blog friend had me grab a book to get signed for Kym...what a sweet mom!

Time passed and we finally made it up to the front of the line! She was so sweet and told Allison and I we looked familiar- we told her we were at the Rodeo- I didn't mentioned I stalked her in the bathroom, ha! She also said we were adorable and that she felt like she knew us in a past life- like we could have been her kids in a past life. HOW SWEET IS THAT??? I really loved that she took time to talk to everyone and sign a message on their book. It was very time consuming but so worth it in the end!

I'm excited to read her cookbook and try out these awesome recipes! Everything in there has step by step pictures and detailed instructions. Plus, nothing looks impossible to cook!

Go pick yourself up a copy or order one online- The Pioneer Woman Cooks!

Couch to 5k

Last night I started a new workout program called couch to 5k. I recently heard about it from one of my besties Morgan. This program trains you to be able to run a 5k in 9 weeks. I downloaded the application on my iphone and it tells you what to do on the treadmill while listening to music at the same time. The first week you do a brisk five minute warm up walk. Then alternate 60 seconds of jogging and 90 seconds of walking for a total of twenty minutes. Then a five minute cool down walk. Your iphone/ipod cues you when to walk or jog and counts down how long you have left. Week 2 is a five minute warm up walk then alternate 90 seconds of jogging and two minutes of walking then a five minute cool down. Week 3 is 5 minute warm up then do two repetitions of the following: jog 90 seconds walk 90 seconds jog 3 minutes walk 3 minutes then cool down for 5 minutes. As you can see the jogging gets longer throughout the weeks to build the stamina to jog for 30 minutes which is equivalent to a 5k. I'm pretty excited and will keep you updated on my progress. Fall has arrived in full force! I'm excited for pumpkins, leaves changing, hot drinks from Starbucks, and Halloween!

Cell Phones

Sorry I've been a slacker blogger this week. Its been a crazy week at work then to come home and crash.

So today I forgot my cell phone...left it at home. Had to go the whole day without it and then went out for happy hour with no phone. Do you understand how hard it is not to have my cell phone on me. I felt like I lost a limb. I know that sounds horrible, but seriously I felt lost without it. What if someone called? What if someone texted me? I needed to make a few personal phone calls today and couldn't! The one day I actually have exciting news and need to use my cell phone...I can't. Sad day. Okay, so I'm being a little dramatic, but it's what I do- just ask my mom.
