Tulsa Fun

This past Saturday we headed over to Tulsa to watch the Tulsa Talons play against the Dallas Vigilantes.  We actually went to celebrate our friend Greg's birthday.  Last year we went and I guess it seems like we started a new tradition.

We love going to Tulsa because it's a really easy drive and there are so many cool things to do there.  It always seems like if we go for the day that we have to eat there twice.  This time we decided to try a different place that we normally go to.  We decided to eat at an Irish Pub in downtown Tulsa.  It was really close to the stadium and it got really good reviews as one of the best restaurants in Tulsa.  The food was awesome and I actually drank my first beer.  That's a miracle for me because I don't drink that much and if I don't I never drink beer.
The pub was located in a pretty cool part of downtown Tulsa.
Chris and Greg are always acting up in photos!
My first beer.
After we got down stuffing ourselves full we headed over to the BOK center to watch some arena league football.  For a person who hates football I can watch about half of arena league football.  By the second half I was totally bored but at least they have a cute mascot. After the game got finished we all drove over to the Cheesecake Factory for a late night snack and for some cheesecake.
The birthday boy!
Tulsa Talon was cute but I still love Ribby better!

Waterfalls and Weddings

Two weeks ago Chris and I got to take pictures of a wedding at Natural Falls State Park in Oklahoma.  It is located right past Siloam Springs.  This is the 6th wedding Chris has taken wedding pictures for.  Chris gets to do all the hard work and I get to be the assistant and help pose the bride and groom and the rest of the bridal party.  I always make sure that we get plenty of pictures because we didn't get all of the photos that we wanted at our own wedding.  The park was a beautiful setting for a wedding and lots of people got to see them get married who were visiting the park.
Chris was using me as a test subject.

This was one of my favorite pictures from the day.

I have been wanting to redecorate the spare bedroom for awhile now.  It's our catch all room for everything right now.  Chris keeps all of his boxes for his job there, the unused treadmill, and of course the guest bed are in there too.  I want to turn it into my girly room since Chris has his office which he gets to decorate I want my own room. 

I've already picked out the bedding and wall color for it. I didn't take a picture of the paint color for the wall but it's called Bermuda Bay and it's by Glidden Paint.  It's a blue gray color and I want to paint the bed a soft white and get some cheap end tables from Craigslist and paint them black.  Here is my idea for the room maybe one day soon in the near future I'll be able to start working on it.
Chris doesn't want me to remove the ceiling fan in there but I don't ever use it.  Plus this looks a ton better!
I am in LOVE with this bedding.  Once I saw it I had to design the whole room around it.

I've never been one to jump on the bandwagon when things are popular when it comes to books and movies.  I never read any of the Harry Potter books, watched Titanic or read any of the Left Behind Series.  But when I went to listen to my next audiobook in the Sunrise series by Karen Kingsbury and found out that it was checked out, I needed something to listen to.  If you don't have time to read I would highly recommend audiobooks.  They are a great way to still be able to read books but it does take awhile to get use to listening to them.  So I was looking on the Lib2Go website and I came across Twilight.  I decided to see what all of the fuss was about and I started listening to it.  I had watched the movie about a year ago and I wasn't that impressed with it.  After listening to the whole unabridged book I have to say that I loved it.  I was hooked from the very beginning and now I am half way through listening to New Moon.  I won't say that I'm obsessed like some of the people who have read the books and watched the movies but they really are pretty good.  So when people ask what I'm reading I have to admit that I'm listening to the Twilight series, at least I'm not the only one!

9 Years ago

I can't believe that 9 years ago I married my best friend.  Chris has been the best husband to me and I love him more everyday.  I thank God everyday for blessing me with such a wonderful and caring husband.  Thanks Chris for making the last 9 years the best, I love you!!  Here are some pictures of us from the last 10 years or so.
Our first date, which was 10 years ago.

Baseball Wrap Up

Razorback baseball is officially done for the season.  We didn't host a regional at home this year so our actual last game we attended was a few weeks ago.  It was a good way to end the season with a double header.  It started pouring during the Friday night game so Michelle and I headed over to the Mexican restaurant across the street before it started raining.
That Saturday we woke up really early and headed to the Fayetteville Farmer's Market before the double headers.  The games were great and the weather was perfect.  We couldn't have asked for better weather for the last home games of the year.  The only bad thing is I got pretty sunburned.  But it has turned into a nice tan! :)  Here's hoping next year we make it back to the College World Series.
