Happy Halloween!!!

Well, I'm home sick today so I have a little spare time to update my blog. I'm having some inner ear problems and am a little off balance and nauseated today. Driving to work seems out of the question and simply walking around the office could prove hazardous to myself and my coworkers. haha.

The past few days have been packed full of Halloween activities. Thursday night was girls night. We decided that pumpkin carving was a good girls night activity and would still give us the opportunity to chat and catch up with each other lives. Here are Laura, Mandy and I cleaning out the favorite part!!

Here is my final product. It's a goblin in case you can't tell. I wasn't feeling too ambitious so I chose an easy carving pattern.

Saturday night my roommates hosted a Halloween costume party at our house. They really know how to throw a party. We had great food and great costumes....

I have one more Halloween party to attend at work this week. And, although this is no cruise to Mexico like Halloween last year, it's shaping up to be a great one here in OKC. Maybe I'm having inner ear and balance problems as a reminder of the cruise and the seasickness last year...

weekend highlights

My roommate Lindsy always does weekend update as she leads a very exciting life. So I’m stealing this from her and doing a weekend update for myself this week.

I like to keep busy but lately the week’s have come and gone and have been wearing me out completely. By the time Friday rolls around I’m ready to stay in, cook dinner and pop in a movie. That was not possible this past Friday…or Saturday…or Sunday.


We headed out to Stillwater to meet up with friends and go to the very exciting Oklahoma State University homecoming walkaround. Apparently, OSU’s homecoming is the nation’s largest. How exciting for us that it takes place right here in Oklahoma. As a non-alumnus of this university I had no idea what to expect and whatever idea I had in my head was not what I encountered in Stillwater. Nevertheless, it was a fun time. We walked around in the chilly night air pushing our way through crowds of people and looked at all the displays set up by each of the Greek houses. I forgot to take pictures but here are some highlights courtesy of the web…


Bright and early Saturday morning I headed downtown with Anastasia and Anne to participate in Race for the Cure. This was yet another event in which I pushed my way through crowds of people. We were shoulder-to-shoulder the whole way and couldn’t really run much less walk at a brisk pace. It was more like a leisurely stroll for the cure. I came to the conclusion that participants were there mainly for the cause than the actual act of running. I was amazed by the number of people that participated. It was a lot of fun and I was proud to be a part of it.

My favorite part was the bagpipe players along the race route. I love bagpipe music!!

My least favorite part…when a bird pooped on me. Gross! I didn’t get a picture of that. But how lucky am I that of all the thousands of people downtown the bird had to poop on me.

Saturday afternoon we headed to Dallas for the last FC Dallas home game before the playoffs. It was not that exciting of a game as our team lost. They didn’t even score! But it was a fun afternoon/evening. By the time we got back to OKC at 1:30 am I was exhausted and waking up on Sunday morning was quite a chore. Here is Anne and I at the game. I was very excited that she decided to come with us so I wasn't the only girl.

you're doin' fine Oklahoma...

November 16th is statehood day here in Oklahoma. We are in the midst of celebrating our centennial year and are just a month away from the big 100!

Yesterday Lindsy, Tracy, Jason and I went to the centennial parade. Here we are enjoying the sunny & warm October day. And, yes, I'm wearing two pairs of glasses.

We had high hopes and were expecting nothing less than Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade quality balloons and floats. Well...this is OKC, not NYC. We had a few of those balloons but they were the reject balloons that were difficult to keep afloat. Some of the floats were cool and we even had a few celebrities...James Garner and Miss America! All in all, it was a fun afternoon. Here are a few of the highlights:

I would have taken more pictures but we were stuck behind a couple ladies with big hair. I could only get pictures of the really high balloons. haha.
