A win and SMU homecoming!

Tuesday, September 29, 2015

Hello again my lovely readers!

I am so proud to say that my husbands football season is taking a turn for the better.
They lost their first game, won the second, and lost their third so it was really important that they win their fourth game because not only was it at home but we were hosting the after game dinner at my house! The game was really close till the last 2 minutes and we WON! Everyone was in great spirits after the game and I really think we are going to do well the rest of the season.

The team plays their games down the street at East Central University so the stadium is pretty cool. The weather was perfect and the moon was beautiful.

After the game we set up my (tiny) dining room to host the dinner... We had quite the spread with sandwiches from Jersey Mikes and tons of sides sadly not pictured :(

Saturday, the football fun continued at SMU homecoming. This year marks the 100th year of SMU's opening so there were quite a few reasons to celebrate!

We headed down Saturday morning and made it to the Boulevard for the homecoming parade and some BBQ at the Meadows tailgate.

The babies enjoyed seeing all of the parade floats and people watching. 

Sloane was so cute in her cheerleading outfit!

We didn't last too long at the game, but we did enjoy being at Ford stadium.

We headed to our hotel only to find out that the twins loooooove hotel beds! The must have wiggled around and played for about 2 hours! They didn't fall asleep till 10:30 or so....

On Sunday. we headed to the Dallas Arboretum to take pictures at the pumpkin patch.
The babies were tired and it was kind of hot, but I got a couple of good shots. 

We headed home, and slept in on Monday!

Hope you all had a great weekend!

September 19th, the day of weddings and music

Hello everyone!

I hope you are all having a great start to your week.

We are almost to October but well into the fall season here in Oklahoma, the weather is in the 70's in the morning and late evenings, and football season is well under way.

Two weekends ago I had one of the busiest Saturdays in forever!
My good friend Megan got engaged last year so her wedding finally came around on the 19th. 

For months I was so excited because I knew it was going to be an unbelievable affair, but I never expected for 2 other events to pop up on the same day...

My long time friend Natalie got married about a month ago and had a small ceremony with her immediate family. Her in-laws decided to host a big celebration, you guessed it, on the same day as Megan's wedding! However, God must have known I was already going to be in town and that I would have a break between Megan's ceremony and reception so I could attend Natalie's party :)

And finally, when Garth Brooks announced he would be making a stop in Dallas for a 6 day concert tour, my husband made sure we would be in attendance. The morning the tickets went on sale, we bought them for the 10:30 show the night of the 19th since we would be in town for the wedding.

I must have driven about 500 miles that day, but it was well worth it! Here is a photo recap of the day.

I arrived to Dallas at exactly 2:00 after a 2.5 hour drive from Ada just in time for the beautiful ceremony at Christ the King Catholic Church.

After the ceremony, the beautiful bride and handsome groom.

Finally got to catch up with my Dallas gals!

I headed to Natalie's celebration in Rockwall at 4:00

Back to the cocktail hour at the Four Seasons in Las Colinas at 6:00

Dinner reception at 7:00 in this stunning ballroom. 
It was the most beautiful reception I have ever attended, the room was so spacious and there were flowers everywhere!

The cake was beyond words!

My favorite Amy!

Such a sweet first dance, Happy Marriage to Megan and Justin!

I had to go back to our hotel to check in,
Then we UBERed it to American Airlines for a 10:30 show.

It was amazing to say the least.

This guy was so energetic and fun.

We didn't make it back to the hotel till about 1am, but we had a great time. 

What a day!
