Scenes from our Weekend

Monday, October 24, 2016

Hi Everyone!

I hope you all had a great week. We had fall break so several of my weekly activities were cancelled which was nice after a few weeks of constant movement. We had a weekend for the books as we got to go to the Mr.'s away game in Tulsa and they WON! It was an unexpected win so we were all in great moods. Friday we returned from Tulsa after visiting Nan, and running some errands. 

The kids enjoyed being at the football game, but after the first half we had to head home since they were being a little too adventurous and running up and down the stands!

Ford was really intrigued by the Cougar mascot.

They also really enjoyed my MIL's halloween pumpkins.

Saturday afternoon we headed to Dallas for the day to check out the new Shake Shack in downtown and then head to the SMU game. It has been about 5 years since the Mr. has even been to an SMU game so we were pretty pumped. 

We got to Dallas around 3 and headed straight to SS. Overall it was great but we did have to wait in line a bit and we had never been so we didn't know to order double cheeseburgers, we got the single and it seemed a bit small for the price. The shakes were delish, we even let the kids have a taste :)

We went to Trader Joe's for a bit and drove through our old neighborhood, oh memories of our Midway house... 

we finally got to the Blvd. and you would have thought we were at a theme park because F&S had a blast running around and exploring. Last year at this time they weren't even walking so it was so much fun watching them enjoy the beautiful campus.

We tried to go to the actual game, but we decided the kids were too wiped out and we werent prepared for dealing with fussy toddlers though a football game so we opted out. Boy did we regret that choice because SMU ended up winning against U of H (a ranked team) which has not happened in over 30 years! Things are looking up for the Mustangs and we were so happy despite not going to the game.

We decided to have one last meal in Dallas before we came back since we don't have many places to eat here in Ada. We headed to Blue Fish in Watters Creek for some sushi. 

Sloane enjoyed the edamame, and the waitress brought us some balloons so the kids were well behaved (for the most part). 

I'm so glad we went to Watters Creek, the weather was so nice and there was a jazz music performance in the park that is in the middle of the shopping center so we walked around for a bit before making the 2 hour drive home.

Sunday morning I wasn't sure if we were going to make it to church, but was so glad we did. The kids got a good night sleep and were happy to go as well. 

After church shenanigans.

So glad the weather is cooling down and we are able to enjoy the outdoors so much more. 

Thanks for stopping, I'd love to hear from you!

Weekend Round Up

Monday, October 17, 2016

Hello Everyone!

I am happy to report that we have started the week out great with a workout this morning at the park, a sign language class, and a trip to Aldi!

We had a fun filled weekend with an almost win for the Mr. and the Ada cougars, and a small Halloween party at our house on Saturday.

I tried my best to decorate as much as I could. I mainly used old halloween decor that my MIL has given me over the years, and balloons :)

I joined the Ada FB kids yard-sale page a few months ago and a mom was selling a golfer costume for $10 so I jumped on it and Ford looked so cute!

Sloanie was a ladybug, and was really into the fruit, which surprises me cause there were cupcakes right next to it!

One of my students was a southern belle, so sweet!

All the kids playing in the back!

There ended up being quite a few kids over, and everyone looked so cute in their costumes!

It was a fun time, and I plan to do it again in the future!

Sunday was a wonderful sermon at church and after we had a little photo shoot outside for my MIL's birthday. I made her a chalkboard sign with a poem we wrote for her.  

Go Cowboys, can you believe this season!

Thanks for stopping by, please comment and say hello!

Weekend Recap

Monday, October 10, 2016

Hello lovely readers. 

I have  few minutes before I head to sign language class with the kiddos so I thought I would stop by and share our weekend experiences. 

The Mr. had an away game so we headed to Tulsa for the night. 

We got in around 4 since I always leave during their nap time (2-4) and hung out for a while before heading to dinner at Texas Road House. 

Sloane wore her red cape for the night.

Saturday morning we headed to a local pumkin patch to take pics of the kids with some pumpkins. Last year was a bust even though we went to the Dallas Arboretum, but this year was a huge success, the kids were so happy walking around the patch and they had coordinating outfits.

After the patch, my MIL and I went to La Madeline, a place I miss so much from Dallas and a place I always forget to go to in Tulsa! It was delish!

We headed home during nap time and I caught Ford with his blankie over his face, too cute!

Sunday we went to church and had a great morning.  Sloane wore a cute dress my MIL got her last year, but it looked great still!

Hope you all enjoyed stopping by, till next time!

Weekend Round-Up!

Monday, October 3, 2016

Hello Everyone!

We had a whirlwind of a weekend beginning with a home game for the Mr.'s team. As much as I would love to say they won, that was not the case. It was a tough game and we all wish the ending was different, but it's part of the game and all of the starting players are hurt so it is what it is. 

Either way, we took the kids for a little while and we let them run around for most of the time.

They loved running around with the other older kids who were throwing the ball. 

After home games, the wives set up dinner for the coaches and their families. Well it was my turn to host and since I am kind of a control maniac, I decided to take care of the entire meal on my own. My MIL helped me with the sides and desert, and I took care of the taco meat and enchiladas. They turned out amazing and I was so glad I made enough food. This picture does not make the food look that great, but trust me it was!

Saturday morning, we hung around the house enjoying the fall weather in our boots!

That evening I met up with the flute teacher at ECU for dinner at a local restaurant. It was so nice to have some musician talk and relate about how we both miss living in a big city!

Sunday we went to church and then had a little photo session outside. Ford decided to take over the camera!

We had a fun afternoon watching the Cowboys win. The kids were so wiped out they slept in and so far, we have had a great Monday.

Hope you all have a great week!
