2018 Garden

The evening started with 1 bell pepper and 5 cherry tomatoes I picked from the garden. Despite being beautiful, they seemed lonely.  

I paired my new garden friends with leftover shrimp, onion, and a few spices.  The end result was magic. 

Not only was it delicious; but healthy and quick. It took fifteen minutes to whip up this creation...from garden to table. You can't beat a tasty meal in fifteen minutes. This is why I love having a garden!

Wedding Planning

Do you remember the time I was going to be a good blogger? Yeah, me neither. Oh well, we do what we can in a day. Right?

Last time we talked I mentioned I was engaged. Time out. You know, it was mean of me to drop an engagement bombshell and just walk away. Sorry, Blogger World. Hopefully, you guys will still be my friend? Please. Perhaps this will persuade you?
First of all, ignore my wrinkled hands. I was in desperate need of lotion. Second of all, isn't the ring beautiful??? Canada Travis picked it out all by himself. It's exactly what I would have selected. I love it!

Right now, we are deep in the trenches of wedding planning. Since I'm super cheap and have two sisters, I did not hire a wedding planner. Currently, things are moving along nicely. We have a date, place, invitations, reception food, cake and I have a dress. I'm sure we've accomplished more but I do not have my checklist in front of me. Yes, I have a checklist. Scratch that, not a checklist. I have a notebook dedicated to this wedding. It's full of list. Lots of list. I require lots of list for this shindig.
If anyone has helpful tips for making a wedding stress free I'm all ears, or all eyes.
Leave me your suggestions.

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?
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, 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.

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 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 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.
