What you missed this summer

Folks, summer is over. I'm declaring summer over. I'm just sick to death of the summer heat! The Summer of 2011 is dead to me. I said dead to me! On a happier note, here are some of the things you missed because I was too busy to blog. Sorry, life and work got in the way.

1. In-n-Out Burger
Dallas, Texas conveniently built a couple In-n-Out Burgers. This is a fantastic set up for me. A) I'm only 3 hours from an In-n-Out. B) Since I'm 3 hours away I cannot hop in my vehicle for a tasty burger whenever the mood strikes. This will keep my butt and thighs in check. See, all around this is good news for OK Chick.

2. Walking Partners
This year I had plenty of walking partners. I enjoy a good 4-6 mile walk with friends. We usually chat about complicated things, like the stock market. Kidding, we never discuss the stock market. Unless, I'm walking with my parents or Sister #1. By the way, this is not a picture of my walking partners. I will probably get sued for posting this picture on my blog.
3. Ikea
I finally visited an Ikea. It was a bit overwhelming. I didn't know where to start or what to buy. However, their cinnamon rolls smelt amazing. I didn't try one; but I highly recommend one on the pure fact that they smelt so amazing.
4. Parents vs. GPS
Folks, I have some proud news. My parents conquered the GPS in their car. It's true. They won the battle. By the end of our Dallas trip they were punching in addresses and following maps/directions. Score one for The Parentals!
5. Cookie Cake
I rekindled my love for a good Cookie Cake.
6. Heat
Blogger World, it was hot this summer. I know, I know it was hot where you live too. We are not used to 109-112 temps for multiple days. What the crap are you suppose to do in 109 temps? If I wanted this kind of weather I would move to the beach, or Louisiana. I didn't sign up for this crap! I will never EVER complain about snow or ice. You have it in blog writing!

Kind of a summer recap ramblings. I like it!

1. Never been to In-N-Out or IKEA. Not sure we have those around here. But I do love Five Guys.

2. Who's this Myles?

3. I don't think the beach gets that hot!

4. Why would anyone ever complain about snow? :)

I've never been to an In-N-Out...I think the nearest one to me is in Vegas...or Dallas. I don't know or care.
We do have an IKEA and I won't go there on principle. They put up a HUGE ugly building and I don't like it...so I won't go. I also didn't appreciate that they sent me a catalog when I'm on the preferred mailing list (they aren't supposed to send me any mail!)
and yeah that's hot! You could come here where it's about 10 degrees cooler.

yeah, I'm pretty sure the beach tos out at 85 on a really bad day. I'll go do some tests and let you know the results.

I'm so glad you discovered IKEA! Their stuff is kinda cheap but if it's seldom used, who cares? I really like their dishwashing gloves, how's that for weird? They are super thin, that's why I like them. Not heavy like the regular brands around here. Of course I have to buy several pair because they get holes in them faster.

Hi everyone. I'm delighted to have become a member of this forum and am looking forward to contributing.

My interests are wide and varied but I reckon my real passion is for music. I love a wide variety such as
Faithless, The Smiths, Enigma, The Cure & The Mission.

I'm always on the lookout for new places to download new music and the best place I have come across is
[url=http://www.iomoio.com/index.php?pid=3140]Iomoio[/url]. Their music is only 15 cents a track so you can save a real fortune. And it's legal!

Anyway, looking to make more posts soon.....
