Wedding Weekend

Blogger World, have you met Rex???! 

Rex and Canada Travis were roommates in Canada. The two Oklahoma boys bonded over OU football, Gary England, Mexican food, and Trailer Park Boys. 
They spent 2 yrs in Canada and over a year in Middle East together. Needless to say, Rex and Canada Travis are tight. 

Saturday, Rex married Elizabeth. 
 
It was a swell occasion! A church wedding followed with a hot outdoor reception. 

Canada Travis and I had a blast celebrating their love, meeting new friends, and enjoying great food.




Thank you Rex and Elizabeth for getting married!!! It was our honor to assist in the celebrations.

Happy Birthday PP

Sunday was the Postcard Puppies Birthday. It was one year ago, Canada Travis found them at the dumpster. I cannot imagine life without these two. 

Seriously, these dogs are the cutest sleepers!!! 

Both dogs love Tiny Tank! 

I couldn't ask for better guard dogs. When they're around no squirrels enter my backyard. 


Happy Birthday Postcard Puppies!!!'

Eat What You Want Day

Today, May 11th, is Eat What You Want Day. What do you want to eat today? Is it a cookie, scoop of ice cream, or a salad? Whatever you want to eat, I hope you make it happen today. 

As for me, I'd take one of these:

Running

Last night, I went for a run. It wasn't far. It wasn't fast. It really wasn't a run. A trot would be a better description. 

I didn't mind the short distance or slow pace. I was just happy to be running/trotting. I've missed running, and I think it's missed me. Lord knows my legs and butt have missed running!!!

I've signed up for a 5k in June. I'm sure I'll walk more than run, but who cares! It's all about showing up, and doing your thing. Running does not judge.

Thunder, Races, Furry Friends, & Mom

Happy Monday to you! Are you as tired as me? Probably. Ok good. 

This weekend was a busy one, but I took pictures along the way.

Friday 
We Thunder Up'd, but it didn't help because they lost. 

Saturday 
Canada Travis raced, I read magazines. 

Sunday 
We celebrated my mom! Look at her new chairs. Do not look at the stuff stacked in the background. She keeps telling us she's going to reorganize the whole house once she retires. 

Sunday Night
I babysat Sister # 1's Furry Friends. We tried to take a selfie. Instead, they gave me lots of kisses. 

It was a fun weekend!

Teacher Appreciation Day

Today is Teacher Appreciation Day. Did you know? I knew this week was Teacher Appreciate Week, but was unaware an actual day was dedicated to teachers. 

I'd like to give a big Teacher Appreciation Day shoutout to my mom!!! She's been a kindergarten teacher forever. No, for real. She's taught Kindergarten longer than I've been alive. I'm sure she loves I'm announcing this to you, but she doesn't read my blog so it's cool. Anyway.... 

My mom, along with all kindergarten teachers, work extremely hard to get their students ready for 1st grade. I don't know if you realize this, but kindergarten is tough. It's not all about coloring in the lines and singing your ABCs. Now days, kindergarteners are reading books by Christmas and writing small paragraphs by Spring Break. And there's no nap time; because who has time for a nap when these five and six year olds have to know so much before 1st grade!!! 

So Blogger Friends, if you know a teacher give them a big pat on the back. It's the least we can do. Happy Teacher Appreciation Day Mom!

The year I was a cheerleader

This past weekend was the OK Memorial Marathon. It's one of my favorite races. I love seeing the sea of runners. Every year it gives me goosebumps. 

This year, I did not participate in the race. However, I did get up early to cheer on my dad and uncle. Both ran the half marathon. 

It was a successful race! My uncle was happy with his time, and my dad was happy he didn't end up in the medical tent. 

I must say, being a cheerleader was very fun! Sure, I missed running but sometimes life happens and you have to adapt. It was a fun morning!!! I'm happy my family enjoys getting up at 4:45am to cheer on crazy runners. It makes life a little more fun.
