Life's Simple Pleasure's: Friends, Music, and Food

Kirsten and I at the Twilight Series' concert listening to some good jazz piano. Usually about 30 minutes after we've been there hundreds of birds come out of the trees and flock the sky, it's quite an incredible sight.

Listening to my new Ipod at the pool! I'm so happy I finally got one, I never thought about the fun in adding music to your everyday tasks - walking to lab, wadding in the pool, running chipmunk trials. I kind of feel like I'm in a movie sometimes. It's like picking the songs to your life's soundtrack!

Brian took me out on the town for my birthday. We ate dinner at the melting pot, it was very yummy! I devoured the entire pot of chocolate fondue by myself!

I shouldn't Publish this Post till I have a Picture of my Pie.

On my time off from work, I’ve been filling my days with fun activities while it’s still summer!

Caramel Apple Pie... delicious!

When’s the last time you took your daughter to the aquarium on a Tuesday? Go.

Brian loving the sharks at the Tulsa Aquarium. They swim over your head, so cool! I touched a stingray.

Some improvements to my room.

I used fabric I got from fabric worm to cover the boxes and lamp. And who doesn’t love some bright flowers in a window!

Alvin, Simon, and Theodore.
I’ve been doing my independent study in the chipmunk lab this summer, and they’re just so darn cute I wanted to show some pics!

Can I have four beers?

Sittin on a rope.

Baby Chipmunk!!

He fell asleep while trying to eat this pellet.

New Experiences

For the past couple of weeks, I've been opening up my creative outlet, just to see what will pop out. So here are a couple of things I have been doing!

My first pie ever! And trust me, it was quite delish!

My painting is finally done! I call it... The Dancing Tree. I loved making this, although it did take me forever!

Today I went to observe pediatric physical therapy, and it was so different from adult outpatient. Most of the kids I saw had developmental disorders. My favorite was a little girl who had cerebral palsy, and loved dora the explorer. She was such a smiley and silly girl. I'm not sure how I feel about peds PT for me, but I really liked observing the sessions because the PTs try to make everything fun and a game for the children. And they are all so gosh darn cute!

I haven't been very computery this summer. I will try to blog more!

Roaming with the Buffalo

So last Sunday I went to Wichita Mountains to do some hiking, and I have to say my favorite part was the BUFFALO! Reasons to love buffs: chin beards, look like they came from the ice age, cow noses, naked bootays, they make me giggle with delight, and baby buffalo! It was really nice to be alone with nature, and also to ride the buffalo across the Oklahoma plains (Hey! You can't tell me it didn't happen!).

That night I went to Carolyns Birthday, which was so fun! It was a little sad at first, because while me, Kirsten and Tracy were sitting in the living room I was thinking "so when is everyone else going to get here?", but there is noone else! The new group dynamic is a little strange for me. Tracy says we will just have to be EXTRA loud! I was thinking maybe we could start having PS tryouts? Brad audition: "Do you feel comfortable dancing up on old women?" "No, I'm sorry, that face isn't quite awkward enough."

Monday was my Birthday!! I had a hoot-and-hollerin' good time! Tracy, Kirsten, and Brian accompanied me for dinner and bar hoppin! I ended up getting one insanely strong hurricane down ("extremely is an understatement" -Kirsten Boggs), a yummy swirl from the Mont, and 15 SHOTS! There weren't two many people at the bars because it was a Monday night, but Kirsten did manage to get two creepos to follow us around (they looked like greesy Italian boys to me, but my judgement was a little cloudy). Durring dinner I got my favorite Birthday present, a call from Laura! I miss her so much, It was so nice to hear her voice.

So I think it goes without saying that I was extremely hungover yesterday. I couldn't keep anything down, not even water! I barely started to walk around by 2:00. Brian had to drive me to feed the chipmunks cause I couldn't hold my head up to drive! It was bad.

Tomorrow I have an appointment with the gyno, which I've never been to. Not really looking forward to it. Laura told be he's a really old guy that talks about sports, so maybe it won't be too bad.

So I know it's a little ridiculous that I haven't blogged since... finals week? I would blame it on the fact that my apartment hasn't had internet, but that's just not the reason. Sometimes I feel like people don't care what I have to say, but I know that's not true! Especially since you are all pestering me to blog, so here it is!

So I just got done reading the Italy chapter in eat pray love, and it got me thinking about what things I do with my time that make me happy. Honestly it was kind of hard to think of things. Mostly all I came up with was activities that I do with people that make them happy, but what do I do for my sheer pleasure? After some thinking, I realized what made me most happy was being in nature. Hiking, camping, or just laying in a soft bed of grass. I am planning to do a lot more "naturey" things in my summer weeks, even if it is just taking walk on a cool night.

My room is pink! I love my pink room.

I'm sad I had to miss out on Megan's birthday. I just got done reading Brad's quotes, and it really made me miss the group. Working sucks. Responsibility sucks. And most of all weekends at Target suck! I miss everyone a lot already. But I am excited for next year, and I will have fun no matter the circumstances!! Which gets me thinking about my new theory on moods and hapiness, but that is another blog!

I'm ready for Kirsten to come home.

My first love letter

First of all I would just like to say that I think it's a fabulous idea that we have decided to start blogging. I can't wait so see what impressions the party squad will make on this world. I want to hear every big achievement, huge mistake, and great adventure! I can't wait to see all of the party squad tonight for some crazy fun ridiculousness! I have to admit that once we are all laughing and enjoying some good booze, I will be reminiscing on some good times... ps dress up days, 17101, football games (as a student!), and legendary ring of fires. Laura, Callie, Jessica, Brad, Megan, Tracy, and Kirsten, you have all made such a huge impact on my life, and I love you all very much. I have learned so much from each of you, and I'm so grateful to have known you.
