Oh the Fair!

The Fair! This weekend Luke and I drove to Tulsa to take our annual trip to the fair with my family. We had a ton of fun just walking around, eating all the greasy food, and laughing. Who knew you could have so much fun at The Fair????
Here is a recap of our fair experience 2007!


Here we are when we first arrived - ready for the fun to begin!


First stop: Finding a snack to get us ready for all the walking

One last snack before we leave!

Now that I have gone to the fair I am ready and pumped up for Fall. I just LOVE this time of the year! First comes The Fair, followed by a visit to the pumpkin patch, hay rides, football games and so much more! I just love it!

Tom's Shoes


Recently a friend told me about these really great shoes called Tom's Shoes.
For every pair of Tom's Shoes that are purchased a pair goes to a child in need.
It is awesome to watch the video that is posted on the website of a shoe drop that they recently did in Argentina.
I encourage you to check this out and maybe even purchase a pair.
They are headed for Africa in 35 days to do another shoe drop.
So Neat.

Facts, Facts, Facts

OK, So I saw this on somebody else's blog and I thought it would be fun to do.
I am going to post some random facts about me that you may or may not know. Just for fun.
Here We Go.

1. When I was seven I was running outside without any shoes on and a stick went straight up my foot. To this day it still hurts if you press on it.

2. My first dog was named Mitzi (she was a shih-zu) we got her on my 8th birthday, I always said that she was my birthday present but my family quickly reminded me that she wasn't.

3. I could eat pizza for every meal and be perfectly content.

4. When I came to college my shoe size was 9, then my sister gave me some cute shoes that were size 7, so I squeezed my feet into them and (painfully) wore them. Now I am permanently a size 7 1/2!

5. I can't dance. Really I have tried taking classes and it is just not happening. It makes me sad.

6. I have been growing my hair out for 4 years now. FOREVER.

7. I have a HARD time dealing with change.

8. My whole life I wanted to be a teacher. My dad brought home this huge chalkboard from his office and we put it in our my basement and I would wear my mom's old dresses and pretend I was a teacher - Almost everyday I would play this.
I always made my sister be the student, until one day she realized that she was ALWAYS the student and she asked me if she could be the teacher - I said no, so she made herself the principal. I don't think we played much more after that.

9. I absolutely LOVE football. Blame it on Luke. I find myself watching Sports Center and random football games even when Luke isn't around. Sick. And I get REALLY sad if we don't go to a football game on a Saturday during football season.

10. I fall down a lot. I almost always trip going up the stairs to my office.

11. I'm the only girl I know who is picky about what kind of TV I own. I think it is ridiculous to watch TV on anything smaller than a Big Screen. I plan on buying my first self-owned Big Screen soon.

12. I love the Fall and Winter months - but I hate being outside in the cold. I get super grumpy.

13. I have been told by several people that I am a very black or white person. I either LOVE something or I HATE it. So don't cross me if you want to stay on my LOVE list. :-)

14. I cry really easily - too easily. When I was little I wasn't allowed to watch Benji because it made me cry so much.

15. I'm probably the worst singer you know. But I always said that I was going to marry a man that sang and played the guitar....I'm well on my way. ( depending on who you ask)

16. I'm a sucker for reality TV shows. My favorite of all time is of course Big Brother!

Ok The End.
If you really read all of that I'm proud of you.
Now maybe all you people who read this and don't have blogs should make one! So that you can share some fun random facts about yourself.
I hope you learned something new about me today!

Explosion


This is going to be a bit of a venting post: Please stick with me! :-)

OK, so last night I was cleaning my bedroom - and I had my TV on in the background. Well as I'm cleaning I hear a loud POP and my TV flashes and then goes out.

Now if I was a normal person this probably wouldn't be such a big deal- but I'm not normal; I'm obsessed with TV, I love it. I usually don't watch it all that much but I use it as background noise and I definitely go to sleep with it on.

So now I have a TV that is just a little over a year old that plays sound -but no picture, anybody want it?

The TV came with a 365 day warranty - but I don't have my receipt(seriously who knew a TV would explode just a year after you bought it)

As soon as it exploded last night I called the technical support number and asked them to help me - they told me I need to call and get my receipt faxed to me - So for the past 20 minutes I have been calling customer service to get my receipt. I have called 4 times and gotten disconnected ALL 4 times. Maybe God is trying to tell me something.


On a side note: Please disregard the post below, I started drinking diet coke again. I gained weight when I stopped drinking it - not worth it.


P.S. Make that 5 times I have now been disconnected from the customer service line. I am never watching TV AGAIN! Clearly I'm not supposed to.--

Goodbye Old Friend




Sometime during my sophomore year I discovered something wonderful: Diet Coke.

Now, I'm sure I had consumed diet coke sometime before my sophomore year - but it was during y sophomore year that I truly discovered it and somewhat became addicted to it.

Diet coke has been with me through good times and through bad. It goes perfectly with a bag of popcorn, a pepperoni pizza and nothing goes better with Mexican food than a big glass of diet coke. I can tell you the best place to get a Diet Coke and the best way to drink it (in a plastic bottle after it has been refrigerated overnight)

For years I have heard all of the reasons for not drinking diet coke. I know all of the side effects but I could never get rid of this love - until recently for some reason I decided it was time to give it up.

I initially began by just going down to one a day - It would be to hard to stop drinking it cold turkey - while this has worked for awhile I still feel that urge to take it out of my life completely.

So....I finally goodbye to Diet Coke last week - and I must say I have felt better - I can't really explain it but I have felt better - I don't have as many headaches, my throat feels better, I'm not as tired - it quite amazing. Hopefully I can keep this up.
Well I have to go now....I'm craving a Diet Coke.......................
