Post #2

Guys, this is the second post in a row! I'm using the time frame "in a row" pretty loosely. Work with me people.

Anyway, I’m sure most of you have been curious of my whereabouts?
No?
Oh, this is awkward.
You see, I planned to write a detailed post of my recent whereabouts. However, since you don’t care I’ll do a quick summary. Here goes...

For the most part, not much has changed in my world. It’s been...work, Jazzercise, running, garden, Furry Friends, Racecar Woman, trips, Sunday Night Dinners, and lots of TV.  One thing has changed in my world...I AM ENGAGED!!!! Yes, it’s true. I’d love to post a picture of the ring, but I’m having trouble. Hopefully, I can get it figured out. If not, just imagine a beautiful ring on my finger. :)

I look forward to planning a wedding with all of my blogger friends.

Hi

Hello.....
Is anyone out there? Blink twice for yes.

So, it’s been awhile. Ok, it’s fair to say “awhile” is an understatement. It’s been FOREVER. Sorry.
I’ll spare you of the lame excuses. Don’t get me wrong, my lame excuses are good. Perhaps not believable, but good.  Anyway.,,,the important thing is I’m back. So get excited!!! I have lots  to say! But I’ll have to say it later, because I have to go to work.

Celebration Trip

Hello! It's been awhile. Sorry. It took me awhile to figure out the Blogger App no longer works on my phone. Anyway....A few weeks ago, my family and I took a quick trip to NYC. It was my...you survived 3 surgeries and 3 chemos celebration trip. Can I tell you, my family and I had an awesome time! I want to share tons of stories with you, but I don't want to bore you to tears. I get it, my vacation is not as exciting to you. But here are a few of my favorite stories from NYC...


The #1 thing I wanted to do while in NYC was visit Fox News. I know, lame. My favorite show, The Five, is on Fox News. I drug my family across NYC to see Fox News Headquarters. I just wanted to see the building. The Five does not have a studio audiences, so it's not like we were going to watch the show be filmed. I was completely happy snapping a picture in front of the building. But while Sister #2 was taking my picture, one of the host from MY FAVORITE SHOW walked passed us. Not only did she take a picture, but she chatted with us for awhile. Kimberly was very sweet to my mom and I. We may have been a bit star struck. 

Another highlight was our food tour. My family loves to eat!!! I don't know if you are aware, but NYC has some tasty food! On our food tour we ate for a solid 2.5 hours. I mean, some walking was involved, but it was mostly eating. We highly recommend food tours. Seriously, my dad was enjoying himself. 

We spent one morning touring the New York Stock Exchange. This was beyond great! I loved every second of our NYSE tour. I learned so many new things, Sister #1 and my mom were on TV, and I was on the floor when the bell rang. It was a very neat experience for my family. 

I must say, I'm one lucky girl. I'm lucky to have a family who loves to celebrate major achievements!

The Beehive State

In the past year, Canada Travis and I have tried to plan two different trips. One trip was scheduled for October 2015 and the other was February 2016. However, life happened and both trips had to be cancelled. The good news is life doesn't stop and now I can finally take a trip!!!

Over the weekend Canada Travis and I visited the Beehive State; Utah. Blogger World, Utah is beautiful fantastic place to visit. It's also my birth state, so you know it's great! I highly recommend visiting Utah. Canada Travis and I had fun exploring a few towns...Salt Lake City, Provo, and Park City. Over the weekend we hiked, biked, kayaked, ate awesome food, shopped, and even attended a car race. Here's a few pictures from our adventure. 

The scenery from our bike ride. You sure can't get this in OKC.

We kayaked two miles down the Provo River. 

I told you we ate great food. 

This is Main Street in Park City. Isn't Park City the cutest!!!

We attended a car race in Salt Lake City. It was pretty fun. We had great seats and even met one of the driver's grandparents. 

The trip was concluded with top notch Mexican food. 

It was hard to return to the real world and humidity.

International Bacon Day

Today, September 2nd, is International Bacon Day. Not only is it a 3-day weekend, but also Bacon Day. Is it going to be a good weekend or what???

You know, International Bacon Day reminds me of a funny story about Canada Travis. When we started dating, Canada Travis worked in a far off country. One morning on my way to work, I received a message from him saying...he'd done some online shopping while I was asleep and I needed to check my email when I got to work. Of course, my curiosity had me gitty to see what he'd purchased. When I arrived to work, I immediately open my email. There in my inbox was an invoice for 33lbs of bacon. Oh yes...you read right!!! He'd purchased 33lbs of bacon. My immediate reaction was he'd gone mad! However looking back, it ended up being kinda awesome.
So I guess you could say this day is for him.

Insta-lately

Typically, I begin this post explaining if I had an Instagram account I would post the following pictures. Well, something happened. I opened an Instagram account. I don't know what prompted me to open an account. It might have had something to do with not being able to view celebrities pics. Ok, that is absolutely the reason I opened an account. Of course, I mean that in a non-stalker/creepy way.  

Anyway, I like Insta-lately so I will continue the monthlyish post. But to keep you on your toes, not all pictures will come from my Instagram account. Tricky, huh? SO, here's your Insta-lately...

Isn't TT cute?? Canada Travis bought him bow ties.

The Sisters came to the racetrack. 

Last night I made one ingredient banana ice cream. It's delicious! 

My dad's birthday meal. 

Happy pups. Sleepy pups.

Sister #1 and I made this donut tree. It took 20 dozen donut holes and 1 hour to create. 

Until next time!!!

Middle Child Day

Tomorrow, August 12th, is Middle Child Day. I'm not a middle child, but I know a middle child. Sister #1 is the middle child in our family. 


In this picture Sister #2 looks like the middle child; but that's just because she's so short. We put her in the middle for most pictures. 


Anyway, tomorrow is Sister #1's day. She's been a great middle child, and deserves a full day of awesomeness. Happy Middle Child Day!
