Weekend Update

Blogger World, another fun weekend has come and gone. It's so sad that Monday is already here, but another weekend is on it's way. Until then, let's recap my weekend. 

Food Truck Festival 



Back porch action

Spooky cookies for Walking Dead

Even though it was a bad weekend for Oklahoma football, the rest of the weekend was great. 
I hope you had a good weekend as well!

And it continues

Well, I'm still in between jobs. I thought this week I'd receive an early release notice; which means I wouldn't be required to show up for work. I'd have to be available by phone, but not come into the office. However, this did not happen. Therefore, I'm still showing up to work. The good news is I just show up. No work is being done from my cubicle. In fact, sometimes I don't even open my email.

Despite still having to come into the office, I am enjoying my free time. Here are some highlights from the past few days....

Massage:
This massage chair is on display at my local Bed Bath and Beyond. I'm not ashamed to say I sat in the chair for 5 minutes.  I spend enough money in that store to take advantage of a free massage.

Ebola Watch:
I spend a good portion of my day watching the news. Yesterday, I had to notify one of my coworkers that the newest Ebola patient flew from Ohio to Dallas. She flew to Ohio the same day the lady flew to Dallas.  

 Food: 
Each day this week I've met a friend for lunch. A new person each day. It's been very fun, and I've eaten some great food!  

Jazzercise:
I've attended many classes over the past few days. So far this week I've attended five classes. Today, I'm just going to attend one class. However, if the mood strikes me I might boogie on to the next class. You never know with me.

I'm going to wrap up this post. I've been at work long enough. It's almost time for my next lunch date.

Living the Good Life

Right now, I'm in between jobs. What could have been a stressful situation has been fantastic! I've accomplished so many things the past few weeks. For instance, yesterday I organized my tax paperwork for 2013 and 2014. Also, I made a huge pot of Chicken and Dumplings, which fed myself and The Sisters. Lastly, I attended 2 aerobics classes. Folks, I did all these things before 5:00 pm!

I start my new job next month, so I'm really trying to tackle a huge To Do List before becoming a full time employee again. Today, I have another laundry list of things to do. 

Today's To Do List:
1) Lunch with old coworker
2) Wash curtains
3) Make hair appointment
4) 2 aerobics classes
5) Cook dinner for The Sisters and myself
6) Reschedule a dr appointment
7) Call dr about medicine

 Blogger World, wish me luck on my list!

Insta-Lately

All of these pictures would be posted on my Instagram...if I had one. 

Delicious Nachos

Sister #1 went shopping at WMF while in Germany.

Weekend Update

I had a fantastic weekend. It was full of football, rowing, the zoo, and good food! 

Friday 
Friday night Sister #2, Canada Travis, and I attended ZooBrew. This is the second year we've attended this fundraiser hosted by the OKC Zoo. It's a great event that supports the OKC Zoo and  local breweries.  



Saturday
Canada Travis and I attended the local college's football game.  They were playing the defending champs in their division, and up until Saturday they were undefeated. It was a big game! Sadly, Saturday UCO became defeated. 


Saturday Night
Canada Travis and I headed downtown to watch Sister #2 row. She was competing in a Dragon Boat competition.  Her team placed 2nd! 




Sunday
After church we enjoyed multiple episodes of West Wing. Blogger World, Netflix is a beautiful thing!  Also, I made Tuscan Chicken and Broccoli Hand Pies for Sunday night dinner. 

Confession: mine did not look this pretty.

Fall Favorites

It's finally Fall!!! This is my absolute favorite season of the year, and here's a few reasons why...

1. PUMPKIN
I love to decorate with pumpkins; I love the smell; and I love to cook with pumpkin. Basically, I LOVE PUMPKIN!!!

2. Fall Fashion
In my opinion, the styles are better in the Fall. I'm not for sure why? Maybe it's because we're finally allowed to wear boots?


I want all of these outfits! 

3. Football


What do you love about Fall?

Ramblings...

This morning, I read an article about ESPN's Bill Simmons. ESPN has suspended Bill Simmons for three weeks due to the comments he made about the NFL Commissioner and Ray Rice.
If you do not know Bill Simmons, he's my blogging hero. He's the reason I decided to start this crazy blog; and he's the genius behind my Ramblings post. So in his honor, I give you Ramblings...

Today, is Sister #1 and Sister #2's last day at their current job.  The funny thing, The Sisters currently work at the same company. I wonder if the company will make them share a goodbye cookie cake?


I love cookie cakes!

Yesterday, I had carpet cleaners scheduled for 10am. They did not show up at my house until 12:45.  Lucky for me, they gave me plenty of time to call another company to use. I have the new company scheduled for tomorrow morning.

Doesn't this look delicious? It's Tuscan Chicken and Broccoli Hand Pies. I think I'm going to make this for Sunday night dinner. Here's the recipe


Martine Rothblatt, a 59 year old entrepreneur and space lawyer, is the highest paid female executive in America. She made $38 million last year as the CEO of United Therapeutics.  What's a space lawyer? Is it a lawyer that works for NASA? Is it a lawyer hired for astronauts? I can't continue with my Ramblings until I know the definition of a space lawyer. I'm sorry. Please hold.....
According to Wikipedia: Space law is an area of the law that encompasses national and international law governing activities in outer space.
Interesting. I had no idea.

Scandal is back!!! Are you excited? I'm excited! You should be excited!

Folks, I'm Rambled out...
