Gonna Leave This Town Behind...

Mike and I have decided to take advantage of this city that we live in for the 10 weeks that we have left here. After living here for almost four years now we are revisiting all of our favorite places that are exclusive to the area and visiting for the first time all the places we always wanted to go. So this led to our first adventure today...

This morning we had breakfast at Around The Corner in downtown Edmond. This is a favorite place for us, not a new one. It is such a great place for breakfast, or anytime really! It's one of those
Ma and Pa type restaurants, not a single one out there just like it and the "decor" is simply plastered on ever inch of the walls. Those are some of our favorite types of places, and usually the ones that make the best food!! Somehow it's one of those places that even though it's packed because it's so popular, it still feels like a place to be able to "get away". It was a lovely start to a Saturday morning!

Valentine's Day

Mike and I are very simple people. We don't really do the whole "fancy date" thing...well, unless you consider Texas Roadhouse fancy!! haha! But that's just who we are and I love that about us, which made me love our Valentine's date even more. We had a nice dinner at home with a heart-shaped pizza and pink lemonade. A little while after that we went out to the movie theater to see "Coraline" in 3-D (which we loved)! It was a nice evening to have just for us. I love my hubby very much and was so glad to get to have him as my Valentine on our first married Valentine's Day!

Happy Birthday to Ethne!

Today is my sweet, sweet nieces third birthday! Last night we got to attend a really fun birthday party for her at the bowling alley in Owasso. It was such a great time and I'm so glad that Mike and I got to go! I can hardly believe that she is three now, even though she has been acting like she was 5 for the past two years! She is a precious girl that no one can help but love. I am blessed to get to be one of her aunts. I love you Ethne! Happy 3rd Birthday!

The Snowball Effect

As most of you know, I have been going through some health problems for the past year. Nothing life threatening, but something serious enough to greatly affect my life. Well, the other day I asked Mike something involving my health and apparently I did not like his answer because I just burst into tears!! And that's when the snowball effect began. I started crying about that one thing, which led to crying about more things involving my health, which led to more and more crying about my health! And all this while I was sitting on the toilet!! Of all places to be while you're bawling your eyes out! *lol*

Now, I've never been one who's too much into psychology, but I was amazed at how one tiny thing suddenly brought up all of these emotions that I had no idea I had been feeling for the past year. I just kept saying, "I had no idea I felt this way, I had no idea I felt this way." as my sweet husband sat on the floor saying, "Me either..." Basically what it came down to is that even though I have so much loving support and care from family and friends, I still feel very alone in all of this. I feel alone because it is all happening to my body and no one else's, and what is happening is a complete mystery. Such a mystery that my doctor doesn't even know what to tell me! It is such a weird feeling to have all these things physically happening to you and you alone, and to have no explanation for them.

I do not say any of this to gain sympathy from anyone or to sound dramatic, because I am very thankful that my health problems are not as serious as they could be. This was just a very interesting experience for me! As bizarre as it was to have all those emotions come from one insignificant thing, I'm glad that it did. I didn't think I had anything to learn about myself, but apparently I did and I can't wait to grow from it.

Baby Shower Time!

Last Saturday I got to be a hostess for Amelia's baby shower. It was a really fun time and (thanks to the genius that is Amanda Wills!) a perfectly themed soccer shower for Ryland (and his daddy)!

One of my favorite things we did at the shower was having all the guests sign a soccer ball, instead of the typical baby blanket. Because we all know that will be needed for the future soccer star that is Ryland May! It was such a cute idea, thanks again to Amanda Wills! I was really glad that I got to be a part of the shower and can't wait to meet baby Ryland and spoil him like crazy!!

Project 365

Well, by this time I would have posted another week's worth of pictures on here, but I have now officially completed Project 365. I absolutely loved doing it and would highly recommend it to anyone else! It is so nice to be able to look back on your year in picture form and see all the things that happened that meant the most to you. This is something that I will probably do again one day, because it's just too fun not to!

After the Project 365 pictures being nearly my only posts on here for the past year, I'm not too sure what will happen on this again. I will definitely give true blogging a shot, but I make no promises! :)
