I am obsessed with this Coach bag. It is just beautiful. You can wear it on your shoulder or across your body. It is big enough to keep all of my stuff in but not so big that people will look at it and say, "Whoa that bag is huge." The color is so pretty. It is perfect, don't you agree? I have had the same Coach purse for 3 years and I still love it and use it every day (thanks, Mom!). But it is cloth, and I am dying for an amazing leather bag. Maybe if I don't buy groceries or pay bills for the next few months I will be able to afford this. Who needs food/water/electricity anyway? Ha. Oh how fun it is to dream!

Bart and Shirley Visit!

I have been such a slacker lately! Sorry for my lack of posts. I am going to try to be better about blogging again. Things are finally calming down and getting back to a routine now!

A few weeks ago our awesome friends Bart and Shirley came to visit us from Norman! It was such a fun time. Sadly I had to work on one of the days they were here, but we all still had a  blast.

We ate lots of good food (one of the nights Shirley cooked and it was AMAZING), hiked Tom's Thumb, ate some gelato, talked about moving to North OKC after Eric's fellowship, living close to each other and having our kids be bff's, and spent lots of quality time together. It was great!

The group

You can do it!

Almost there

Yeah. We are cool and take pictures of our shadows.

We made it!

Good thing that guy didn't drop your camera, Shirley! :)

At the driving range! This is the day I had to work.
Nice form Shirley, nice form.

Such a natural.

My husband, the golfer

I love these three.

Can I tell you how amazing it is that you guys came to see us? We loved it so much and can't wait to live next door one day :)

P.S. Shirley is an amazing photographer. Check her stuff out :)

Tragedy in Tucson

I'm sure you have all heard about the shooting in Tucson over the weekend...

And I'm sure you have all heard about Westboro Baptist Church in Topeka, KS who was made famous by protesting funeral of fallen American soldiers.  Absolutely disgusting.  Well, they were also going to protest at the funeral of the 9 year old girl who died in the shooting in Tucson. They agreed to not protest at her funeral in exchange for radio air time.  Thank goodness they will not be protesting, but it is absolutely ridiculous that it took giving them publicity for them to stop.  

This group of people absolutely horrifies me. I don't even know what else to say about it. I'm not going to post a link to any articles about it because I feel like it would just be giving them attention which is what they want.  But if you haven't heard about them feel free to google them.  

Be praying for the victims, families, and friends that were involved in this horrible tragedy.

Thoughts on a New Year

Happy 2011! I must say, I am a little sad for 2010 to be gone. It was just such a good year filled with so many blessings...especially getting to marry Eric! I'm not going to lie, I am a little sad it's not our wedding year anymore.  I am looking forward to this year, celebrating our first anniversary and being done with year one of residency.  I just feel like 2010 was so overwhelming and went by so fast! Anyone else sad to see 2010 go?
Hope 2011 is filled with blessings for you all!

Jimmy and Nicole Visit

Last weekend our good friends Jimmy and Nicole came to visit! It was such a good weekend! We celebrated the new year (and Jimmy and Nicole's wedding year!), watched some Dexter, got Nicole hooked on Dexter, and watched the Sooners win the Fiesta Bowl.  We all had a great time just hanging out with each other!

How Come I Never Knew About These?

If i would have known about this stuff I totally would have registered for it for our wedding! I love it! I guess  I could start collecting it slowly for our nice china set...which we have no where to keep right now...someday, someday.
Love these bowls

And these

And these large plates. I think it would be cute to have a bright color of salad plate to go on top.

A lot of her stuff is a bit over the top...just not my style (furniture, flower dishes etc).  But I love this pattern! Check our her stuff here!

Pretty dishes make me happy :)

Christmas at Home!

Even though I had to work on Christmas Day, I got to go home for 3 days before Christmas to celebrate with friends and family! It was SO good to be home for the holidays even if it was just for a little while.  Here are some pictures from Sara's camera (I left mine here in AZ), and there are still some from Mom's camera I need to get.

Pretty tree!
