Letters from OK Chick

Dear KC,
Thank you for dinner last night. You are wonderful! I appreciate that you shared your homemade broccoli soup with me. I really appreciate that you brought me the homemade broccoli soup. I'm so lucky! Let's face it, if it wasn't for your soup I would have had tuna fish made with nonfat Greek Yogurt.

Dear Starbucks,
Thank you for serving me even though I know you weren't technically open yet. I also appreciate that you honestly answered my does this outfit match question. I realize this question is annoying during normal hours of the day, but at 5:45am I can't even imagine. It's not your fault that The Sisters traumatized me.

#1 Customer

Dear Dad,
Thanks for filling up my car this weekend. You are an All-Star Dad. I promise when you and mom get old, I will take care of you!

OK Chick

A girl on a diet-Day #1

How a girl on a diet rationalizes some of her semi-unhealthy habits...

Self, if you drink your 32oz jug of water by lunch, you can have a tall nonfat Chai to get through the afternoon.

As I've stated many times, I'm a reward kind of girl!

Life with two sisters

Last night, Sister #1 cooked dinner for Sister #2 and myself. We all met at her place of residence around 6:15ish. The meal was fantastic. Normally, I would go into great detail about our meal. However today I don't have time, and that's not the point of my post.

When dinner was finished everyone started making their way out the door. My family isn't one of those eat and linger families. We eat, we clean up, and we move on to the next event. It's the A.D.D. You combine 4 out of 5 people with A.D.D, and there isn't going to be much sitting and chatting.

Anyway, we were all outside about to go our separate ways when the following conversation took place:
Sister #1: Did you wear that outfit to work?
Me: Yes. Why? Do you not like it?
Sister #1: No. I don't think it matches.
Sister #2: No, it doesn't match.
Me: Yes, it does. These pants are brownish and this shirt is brown.
Sister #1: Those are not brown pants they look gray.
Sister #2: And the brown boots don't match either.
Me: The pants are brown.
Sister #1: Sister #2, come here. You have on a black shirt we'll compare.
Sister #1: Huh? Well, they don't look brown from a distance.
Sister #2: Nope
Me: Well, what color am I suppose to wear with this shirt?
Sister #1 and Sister #2: I don't know, but not those pants or boots. It doesn't match.

I appreciate the Sisters honesty after I'd worn the outfit all day. You now see why I wear lots of black and white. There's never a problem with matching.

Life of a Bachelorette

Folks, sometimes life as a young single person isn't so bad....

I don't want to get anyone's hopes up but I know for a fact, Kevin Durant looked me. No.Joke.

They just grow up so fast...

Friday...Sister #2 turned 20. I know, I can't believe it either. I mean, just yesterday she was attending my Middle School basketball games and running around the yard with her bubble machine.

I realize I'm a few days late, but Happy Birthday Sister #2! I hope you enjoyed your birthday celebrations. She had multiple celebrations to ring in the 20's. I have no idea where she gets it.

Blogger World, who in the world has time to make a 14 layer cake?
Go ahead, raise your hand. We'll wait.

Sister #2, sadly this is not your birthday cake.

Intelligence for Your Life

Blogger World, do you know who I like?

John Tesh.

Do you remember him? He was an Entertainment Tonight Host, who became a piano player, and then transformed into a radio talk show host.

Here in the Windy State, Oklahoma not Illinois, John's show airs in the evening. Most nights I hear bits and pieces of his show, and always walk away learning something. He has great random information. He really does, I'm not being sarcastic. Here's an example of the random facts I've learned from John.

1.Random Fact on Love-The Reason I Can't Get a Date
Men typically wait until they're financially stable to take on a wife and family - and since they aren't getting the jobs anymore, they aren't getting the wife, either. Plus, men are being bombarded with slacker role models. The typical guy you see in movies and on sitcoms is an over-grown frat boy with no direction in life, and the women aren't waiting around for him to grow up. Now, can I get an Amen? I would like to give a disclaimer: Bone and DJ are both good guys and do have jobs.

2. Random Fact on Travel- Frustration on an Airplane
More and more travelers say they’re sick of sitting next to an overweight passenger who bulges into their seat. Legal experts say you have every right to complain, because when you buy your airline ticket, you’re entitled to 100% of your seat, not the 70% or 60% left after an obese traveler spills into it. In fact, it’s against the law for you to share even 1% of your seat. Today most airlines charge obese passengers for two tickets if they can’t fit into one seat with the seat belt buckled and armrests down.

3. Random Fact on Health-Allergies
Wind. Dr. Bill Sears is a Professor of Pediatrics at the University of California School of Medicine. He says the pollen that causes most eye, nose, and lung problems – like oak and ragweed - are very light and easily distributed by the wind. Your best bet: Stay indoors on windy days - especially in the morning, because that’s when plants release pollen. You can track your local levels of airborne irritants on the website

4. Random Fact on Weight Loss-How to lose 5lbs in one week
  • Make sure one of your meals each day is just raw vegetables.
  • Don’t drink anything carbonated – it can bloat you.
  • Drink a ton of water – then drink some more. It’ll help keep you full and prevent you from retaining water.
  • Minimize carbs – no potatoes, rice or pasta.
  • Walk for 20 minutes twice a day.
As you can see the man knows everything! I highly recommend adding a bit of John Tesh in your life. I guarantee you will walk away learning something new.

RIP Passport

Blogger World, I have some sad news. Last week my passport expired.

I cried. Not really.

But if I would have thought about it long enough, I would have cried. My passport and I have shared some great memories.

You know, I had quite a collection of stamps and visas in my passport. Now, I have to start over, and it feels exhausting.

Today, I am in morning over my passport. My new one will be blank, which sucks!
