I have been so crazy busy lately that this weekend was much anticipated, I had plans to spend much of it doing nothing. I have lots and lots of pictures from the past few weekends but this weekend I did not take one single one. And I for one am okay with that....here's what I did in words...
Friday Night - Garrett came over and felt the need to fall clean...my stuff. So, much to my horror we went through everything I own and got rid of a ton of stuff. I'm talking 6 garbage bags full of things to donate. According to him there was much more to purge but I think that was a good start! My Mom used to have a mantra she made me chant "Trash Cans Are Our Friends". I personally hate trash cans, I could be a hoarder. I love my things. But, with all the moving in college made me do I've actually become quite good at getting rid of stuff, well good for me. I also have this small problem called when I get rid of things I say things like well I'll just have to go shopping to get some more ____ fill in the blank with whatever I just put in the donate pile. I don't think it's supposed to work that way. Anyway, we cleaned our little hearts out until very late, and were more than ready to sleep.
Saturday - On the way to Norman to run some errands and eat lunch at my newest very favorite restaurant before the football game, we passed The Fair. And Garrett decided we should go! His spontaneity floored me, I hadn't even asked to go the fair because I was pretty sure he would say something about all the icky people that come to waste their money at the fair. I was all up for the idea because HELLO fair food get in mah belly!!!! Let me tell you the Fried Green Tomatoes were worth all the scary redneck people and the man who shoved me out of his way (even though HE was the one walking on the wrong side of the lane) I love, love, love fried green tomatoes (why aren't there ever any in the store? I would make them at home and eat them every day myself if I could find them!) We also ate some...are you ready for this....Chocolate Covered Bacon....did you read that. Oh my AH-MAZE-ING the amount we got for the price was kind of a ripoff but ya'll I could eat that every.single.day after my FGTs of course. We had the Corn Dog and the Roasted Corn of course and some fresh squeezed lemonade that was a total disappointment, and an indian taco that wasn't anything great. I've already made my list of what I'll be filling my belly with next year.
I love you. I cannot wait to see you again. Can we please get married? But, maybe it could be just you and me and not all the crazy people wearing no clothes, they scare me. And maybe also could you leave the animals at home, they smell icky.
Love Always and Forever (as long as you have Fried Green Tomatoes and Chocolate Covered Bacon),
Sunday - I was supposed to drive to Dallas on Sunday and I was dreading it because it was going to be the fifth weekend in a row I spent six-plus hours in the car and I just wanted to do nothing. So, I changed some things around and I made it so I could just do nothing! And it was GLORIOUS!!!! I did go to lunch at my favorite new restaurant that I didn't make it to on Saturday. Iron Star Urban BBQ, if you are in Norman or OKC go there now. Seriously right this second. It is sooooo good. It's one of those places where you want to try everything because everything that you have put in your mouth from there has been so absolutely amazingly good, but you also don't want to miss out on your favorite thing that you had the first time you went there. I have learned to conquer problem by taking different people with you and then trying whatever they order. Other than it was football and lots and lots of napping. The best kind of days!
Things are going to continue being crazy around here for the rest of the year so I'll take lazy weekend days whenever I can get them!
Happy Scott's Birthday!!!
Have an awesome week!
