Ya Killin Me


So every day on my drive to work I pass by rainbow bread or maybe its wonder bread?? What I do know is that they are making fresh, hot, delicous smelling bread every dang day. My mouth waters every. single. time. I eat breakfast at work, usually a slimfast shake or oatmeal. So, you bet I'm starving...and that dang bread smells so good! Mom, I know your reading this: when I come over for dinner next time please make fresh bread. Thanks.


Have a lovely weekend!

Walking




Early Sunday morning I joined my mom and 19,000 others downtown for the 9th annual Oklahoma City Memorial marathon/walk. We participated in the 5k walk that circled around downtown OKC. I can't tell you how inspiring it was to see 19,000 people in the streets of OKC. In front of us people. Behind us people. We ended the walk when the first half marathon participate ran through the finish line and by the time we reached home we watched the winner of the full marathon speed down the streets to the end of his journey.

In 5th grade a year after the bombing took place my elementary school art class painted tiles that would later be chosen for the children's area of the memorial. My tile is placed on the wall for all to see. It's an honor to have my tile in the exhibit.

Have a wonderful week and happy Monday!

Bon qui qui




I spent the weekend in Tulsa for a wedding and I'm pretty sure by the end of the trip we were all quoting this halirous-ness.

"Rude"

"Security"

"Don't get crayzeee"

Family







As some of you may know I'm an only child. I have always liked being an only child and rarely on occasion wished that I had a brother or sister. The times that I wish I had a sibling are when I think about when my parents are gone, but I get a great sigh of relief from the thought of having my cousins in my life. I have two boy cousins that are close to me in age. They used to live somewhat close and growing up we spent many fall breaks, Christmas, summer, etc together. Our mom's are sisters so we were always getting together so in some way my cousins are like brothers to me! They would act just like a brother would to a sister, but they also made the tom boy come out in me. I'm the middle child out of the 3 cousins and the oldest is visiting this weekend with his fiance and little boy Ayden. Ayden was born in November and because he was so close to Christmas they were not able to visit Oklahoma. So this will be the first time meeting Ayden and I can not tell you how excited I am to see him! I'm calling him my nephew (instead of a second cousin) I figure that my cousins are like brothers so he might as well be a nephew to me!! ha :)
Have a wonderful Easter!

Friday

I want to re-do the theme in my bathroom in the near future and I think I want to have the color scheme be black, white, and yellow. Possibly do a black and white shower curtain with yellow accents. I could even throw a grey into the scheme as well. Here are some of my favorite pictures with this color scheme:

Fresh Ink





I'm in love, yes I said it. I'm in love with a card brand. Fresh Ink from Hallmark is in the top 10 of my favorite things. I could sit in Hallmark for hours upon end reading all of their fresh ink cards. They are simple, chic, witty, crazy, absurd, and so me. I love finding the perfect card to send friends. I think a card goes a long way. It doesn't have to be a birthday or wedding or even a thank you for someone to receive a card. There are plenty of times where a person needs a little pick me up and your unsuspecting card could just do the trick.

I received one yesterday and it happened to be a fresh ink from my best friend Lynsie. It made my day to say the least.


I could only find a few examples online, so when you have time to spare head up to your local Hallmark and check out fresh ink. You will not be disappointed!
