I’m a Bad Blogger

So I’ve been busy/lazy. I haven’t updated on anything lately. Here is what I’ve been doing.

I went home for Memorial Day. Tyler stayed here with his family. While I hate being apart, its nice that we can go and do our own things. I watched my cousins play soccer and dance, played in the pool, on the lake, and had a BBQ. We watched fireworks on the lake too. Well, not my mom and Luke. He was so scared of them and they went back to the car. haha

I have been doing work at home and trying to stay on top of everything. Also, I got some bloodwork done and they found out my cholesterol is a little high and also so is my sugar. I am prediabetic. So I’m really cracking down on eating/working out (I tried to type excercise, but I can never spell it right…so I changed my word choice. I wish when I was younger I would have done the spelling bee. I watched that. Those kids were amazing.) They said if I could pull off 2o pounds and watch my sugar intake, I could take my risk down substantially. So I’m working on it.

Also, we had my birthday weekend and Tyler took me to Arkansas wine country. We stayed at a B&B in Ozark and hit up the BEST little hole in the wall eatery in Altus called Kelt’s. Seriously good. Tyler and I talked about getting on the motorcycle and driving back there to eat sometime soon. It was awesome.

Then Sunday we went to some wineries and had some tastings. It was fun. Our favorite was Chateau Aux Ark. They had really yummy stuff and beautiful property. We bought a few bottles to enjoy later (as I’m staying away from alcohol while I’m working diligently on the weight issue). But the weekend was relaxing and so fun. I love my husband and spending time with him.

Then, last night….a bunch of lady TAs had a big dinner and went to see Sex and the City 2. The movie was funny and very scandalous. It was a fun evening. I’m so glad to have made friends in this year here in Fayetteville. What a blessing that is.

Hoping I will update more….

Moved and Moving On

Well, we got all moved in. Thank goodness.

I worked my bootay off last week moving things on my own during the day, and last weekend, Ty and our moms helped get the big stuff. It went pretty smoothly. We have amazing moms who help so much. It was a breeze to do everything with them there. We are so blessed.
We got everything unpacked and put away and hung up. It feels good to be settled.
Some highlights: (mostly of my beloved Fiestaware, that is finally here with me instead of boxed up at my mom’s house. Thanks everyone for the great wedding gifts!)
My new guest towels. Thank you BB&B gift cards! I love them!
Kitchen table- Craigslist find! And all the new Fiesta Things and new frame.
Baker’s Rack…also Craigslist. And all the new Fiesta.
Kitchen Trifecta. Kitchenaid Mixer, Fiesta mugs, and Keurig.
My Fiesta Canisters. Thanks mom! And I made that little mosaic clock!
Fiesta on the stove. And I painted those canvases to match everything!
Then we went to see Miranda Lambert in the Fort! It was the best concert and we had so much fun!

She had a pink guitar! Loved it! She sounded so flawless, even better than recorded! I was so impressed that she never hit a sour note.

Now I’m heading home to spend some time with the family, and Ty is staying here to spend time with his. I hate to spend time apart, but we both wanted to see our families and do different things, so we are headed in two different directions. But it will be great to spend time by the pool, on the lake, and BBQ. Yay for holidays and tans!

Its been a while…

So sorry I’ve been busy with other things. But here is a short summary of what I’ve been up to.

We went to a dirt bike race….

I went to graduation at OBU to watch my best friend graduate! And the night before, I met up with several great friends and pledge sisters and we had a little fun!

And we went to Dallas to the motorcycle auction. It was crazy! So many bikes and 4wheelers, and dirt bikes, and everything else. This picture is like 1/3 of it all. I think I helped Tyler out a little bit by being there, so I’m gonna go again with him next month.

We are trying to move this week. Whew for that! Can’t wait for more space and a bigger bed! Amen!

And I started working out again with my friend Laveda. The classes we are going to are hardcore. They are kind of p90x style of body confusion. I’m sore and tired, but we are determined to work out 3-4 times a week. Let’s go.

I’m also working on transcribing interviews for a prof (gonna get carpal tunnel by the end of summer) and my research. Lots to do!
