Weddings, friends and Labor Day fun!

This past weekend, one of my good friends form college (and neighbor in the dorms freshman year, roommate sophomore year), got married.

She did a wonderful job with every single detail of the outdoor, shabby chic, western themed wedding.

Even though we were in the middle of downtown OKC, the venue made you feel as if you were out in the country too.

So happy for Kristin and Matt! And, can’t wait to see their marriage grow as they do. They are truly meant for each other, and I was so blessed to get to be a small part of their big day.







Football season

Even though Eric isn’t coaching this year (thank you grad school), we still couldn’t miss one if the most perfect games to start the football season.

Eric’s Cincinnati Bengals and my Dallas Cowboys in a rare occasion played each other during a preseason game.

It was a fun date night and a great place for people watching (my favorite past time). In the end, does it really matter who won?!

Maybe to some …Go ‘boys!


Murphy’s law

You are bound to get knocked down from your mountain tip experience at some point… And hopefully our “valley” will end soon.

Until this weekend, I didn’t have good way to express all the chaos and endless necessary spending we’ve been through since May. Murphy’s Law about sums it up –

Anything that can go wrong, will go wrong.

Here’s to brighter days… and giving ole’ Murphy the boot!

Home shopping

When we moved back, we weighed the pros and cons of buying vs. renting.

It all came out to benefit buying a home in the area we used to live before.

Throughout the process so far, we’ve learned a lot about our own preferences and opinions. Who knew having the washing machine so close to the kitchen (without a door) would be such a factor? Or the condition of door knobs?

It has definitely been a search so far! But it’s fun to see and dream if all the possibilities to come.


This week, I’ve been able to catch up with a few friends in the Dallas area. It’s been fun to catch up with everyone, and get back into a routine.

It wasn’t until one friend mentioned the term “boomerang” that I realize that’s exactly what we did.

We grew up to the North and flew back to the South. I think I’ll call this next life phase whiplash.

Weekend of family, friends and packing!

This weekend, we were able to spend done quality time with our friends and family while we finished up done packing to prepare for our move back to Texas.

Friday and Saturday, Eric’s college roommate, Zach, and his wife, Shannon, and their two-year-old son, Levi, were so sweet to help unpack up most of the kitchen and move out some of the large items. That will save us tons of time on moving day!

It wasn’t all work and no play, though. We did take some time for a hand night at our friends, the Rammers. It was great to see everyone mesh and spend another game night together before we have to leave.





On Saturday, Eric’s parents came up for one last visit and helped us pack a bit on Sunday. It was so nice to see them and spend some time together. They were so helpful.


With do little left in the house, the move has started to really hit me. We really enjoyed our time here and the friends we’ve made. I can’t believe it’s just been a year and a half. Wow!

Just three days to go…
