At the movies!

Lunch with some of my favorite former coworkers (they totally get me), house stuff, workouts, lunch with my parents, ridiculously delicious and unhealthy brownies, UFC fights, and Life Church At the Movies!

It was a pretty quiet weekend, which was a nice treat.

Thankfully, although I have a long work week ahead, it’s my short week and I get to see my sister try on wedding dresses. Yippee!

Off to conquer Monday. How was your weekend?

Whew!

I have a long and busy week ahead and I’m already missing the weekend. Here’s to being our best this week and powering through with grace.

Hope you had a good weekend! What did you do?

My dad ran in the corporate challenge, so we naturally all celebrated with cheesecake for sitting, moving we little as possible, and watching. Perfect sense.

Panera (and a giant coffee!) with Marisa, taking care of Lucy post surgery, a special call with a friend, cheering on my dad at the OKC Corporate Challenge, celebrating with cheesecake (you know, because cheering is hard) chats with my parents, workouts, house stuff, church, and good talks with Will.

We had a wonderful weekend! It was a three day for me, but went so quickly. Why do these longer days seem to leave me with less time!? wink

Man oh man! I had such a wonderful weekend. Quite honestly, we didn’t have any real plans, but things quickly changed and turned into one of the better weekends we’ve had in a long time.

This was the Weekend of Layla! My sister was out of town, so Layla stayed with my parents. We took a trip to Lowes with my dad Thursday night, and it’s way more fun when a Jimmy Johnson cart is involved. Haha

Will and I took her out for a frozen yogurt date Friday night and spent the rest of the evening playing and also had some time with my parents.

Saturday was a whirlwind! On a whim we got in the car and drove two hours to Ponca City to eat brunch at Perkins! It was such a good Saturday. Will and I chatted the whole way up and back about life, Kuwait, family, and our future.

And then there was the pie and mammoth muffins. Let’s not forget about that. Dead. Dead. Dead.

We brought back a dozen muffins, so yeah, my life is pretty much over. I froze a few for a rainy day but…

We spent the evening with Layla and my parents followed by a Star Wars movie in the man cave (Will insists we have to watch all of them so they’re fresh when the new one comes out this winter. Ha!).

Sunday was the usual, but even better because Layla came to church with us! She was so brave and went into her class and wasn’t nearly as scared as I thought she might be.

Such good weekend. I have a pile of laundry on the couch and dishes in the sink, but I don’t even care.

Check in this week for Wills lower body workout, Thursday Things, and more. 💗

Thursday Things, 28 May 2015

Short weeks are the best
It’s Thursday even though it feels like Wednesday! I’m all about that feeling. Give me a Thursday on a “Wednesday” any day.

Let’s (obviously) start with the biggest thing.

P’s getting hitched!

Real life.

Oh friends, I’m not one to tell people’s stories for them, but if I did, I’d tell you what a happy beginning this is for my sister.

She’s been through a lot the last few years as a single mom and I’m thankful she found a good old Oklahoma boy to sweep her off her feet.

Um, I’m technically not sure if I’m allowed to share this (so I’m asking for forgiveness instead of permission), but check out her gorgeous rock!

Engaged!!!!

So unique.

Since I’m a big sister and a hopeless romantic, naturally I’m over the moon about her engagement because, WEDDING PLANNING!

And now we must also consider the most important question about this engagement news-

Is she going to make me wear as ugly a bridesmaid dress as I made her wear?

Carissa Flint-13 March 2004
Oh man I hope not. I still have no idea what I was thinking.

And yes, the church I grew up in and got married in really DID have ugly orange carpet.

One more thing about the wedding

Well, one more thing today, that is.

Can I please tell you how relieved I am that Pinterest didn’t exist and that Facebook was for school kids when I got married?!

I would have been completely overwhelmed by the ideas. Sometimes less is more. Especially when you’re a crazy stressed out bride-to-be slash full time college student.

Oh man, friends. These chairs.
Finished product. Watching games will never feel the same again.

They’re lazy lady makers!

So cushy and cozy.

So inviting and relaxing.

They’re pretty much killing me.

Since we’re taking about the chairs...

Let’s talk about how anal meticulous Will is about our usage.

He’s making us rotate the chairs we sit in each night to make sure they all get “even wear.”

Real life.

In his defense, he’s waited years for these, so I kindly oblige without too much ribbing.

The only complaint is that sometimes in the rotation we sit on opposite ends (😂 ), and I’m
not a fan of that.

At all.

Friends in Low Places
I am so thankful for the beautiful godly people in my life. One of my dear sister friends completely shared in my heartache last week (see Friday’s post) as if she were going through it herself.

We sat on the phone and prayed together and cried together (actually, I didn’t cry. I ugly cried. I was glad we were on the phone so she couldn’t see the mascara everywhere and running nose. Ha!). God is so good to me, and giving me godly friends who love me and hurt with me when I’m sad, and are excited for me when things go well, is such icing on the cake.

When slight really means huge and probable

The weathermen in Oklahoma are killing me this storm season.

They have this new, improved, ever-so-helpful updated severe weather guide that’s supposed to depict a better understanding of the types/probability of storm risk in various areas.

Boo

When you see the words slight, what comes to mind?

I’m thinking like 25% chance or less, maybe?

Definitely not that you’re darn near guaranteed to have a storm (one with hail and occasional tornadoes). Which has pretty much happened every single time that stupid yellow “slight” risk is tagged for the metro.

I’m not sure if they’re tired of getting slack for claims they overreact too much or what, but basically when I see slight, I really see moderate these days.

You didn’t know I was such a weather “expert,” did you? Haha

We had a fantasticly long holiday weekend. I am so blessed to have such wonderful people around me.

Thursday was spent cleaning and doing house stuff. We also made time for a sonic break and a quick snack.

On Friday we travelled to southwest Oklahoma and spent the day with Will’s grandparents. We went to Hobart, Oklahoma and visited General Tommy Franks’s museum, ate lunch at a local shop, and checked out a quilt show. We even made time to visit with my parents and pick up our freshly groomed pups.

Saturday was supposed to be cleaning the closet day, but we ended up getting our theatre seats delivered! We ordered them a few months ago and we were excited to get them! Will spent the better portion of the day putting them together, and I had to drive up to the furniture show to get some missing parts. So yeah, there went most of Saturday! We enjoyed the chairs with my parents and ordered the MMA fights.

Sunday was spent at church and meeting new friends, which was nice. We also cooked out with my family and celebrated my sister’s big engagement!!!! More to come on that this Thursday.

Yesterday was much more low key. I basically spent all day doing everything I hadn’t done over the weekend! Food prep, dishes, laundry, fun times. smile

It was such a wonderful weekend and I’m sad it’s over. Lucky for us, we’ve embarked on a short week and are already a day down!

Check in tomorrow for more fun!

Thursday Things, 7 May 2015

Last weekend Will found a snake in our driveway.

It’s not the first time this has happened. However, it was the first time something other than a garter snake was in our yard!

Yikes!🐍
That was no garter snake. It bowed up to Will and wouldn’t back down.

Real life.

Because we always go in pairs.
I walked in on someone using the restroom last week.

I’m not sure who was more embarrassed/annoyed- me or her.

In my defense, the door was marked “green” for empty and was not “red” for occupied, so it was open season.

Still… It’s a little awkward having to see that person in the finance review meeting after our tango in the bathroom. 😐

In too deep

Remember the garage sale I mentioned a few weeks ago?

I was right. Totally right. We’re a complete mess.

I have a feeling weeks later we’re going to realize there’s tons of stuff we should have sold but didn’t because we were too busy scrambling to get everything else together in preparation for the event.

Do you know how much work garage sales are?

Of course you do.

Whatever happened to putting everything in the lawn? Now you have to rent tables and get permits and all sorts of other red tape.

Say a prayer we score some serious cold hard cash.

Or at least get rid of Will’s DVD collection.

Street Outlaws
Soooo, I pretty much have a “celebrity” citing (?) every week.

I say “celebrity” citing with a question mark, because I’m not entirely sure people on a network reality show count?

It does, right? It totally does. They’re on national TV and have had multiple seasons.

Why would I even question it. Who do I think I am!?

Anyway, the Street Outlaws and I workout at the same gym, and apparently have for years.

On my Fridays off, they’re always there. My mom and dad are big fans of the show and always text me when they have a citing.

I’d never really watched it until recently, so I had no idea who was who.

So yeah. Fun fact.

If you’re a fan of the show I could probably score you an autograph between their bench press sets.

Things I need to learn

How to sew.

I needed very minor repairs on three pairs of work pants. However, since I can pretty much only sew a button (real life), I figured I better leave stitching a small hole to the professionals.

Turns out I would have been better on my own.

It was supposed to just take a week.

I went two weeks ago and she needed more time because of the prom rush.

I went the week after, and she had forgotten about me… And couldn’t find my clothes!

Insert the part where I completely internally freaked out in my mind while faking calm and order.

She said they were probably at her house, and she would call to confirm.

She never called.

She was closed over the weekend and thankfully called earlier this week and said she had my clothes.

Turns out they were done three weeks ago but every time she looked for the three items she never found them...because there were two black items and they looked like only one.

Sheesh.

Anyway, crisis averted. Sanity (mostly) intact.

Kindred hearts
I don’t have time in today’s post to tell you my story about kindred spirits and the Anne Shirleys in my life (perhaps I’ll explain one day).

However, I am compelled to share how incredibly blessed I am to have a friend with such a beautiful heart of God, obedient and tender to the Holy Spirit. So much so, that she has this unique ability to text me throughout the week when I need it most. I’m so blessed by those rare friendships, and even more blessed by Jesus and the fact that He loves me enough to show it in such beautiful people who share and love His word. Not to mention the beautiful quiet moments I get alone with Him, too!

This week’s TBT comes courtesy of Mother’s Day.

Brittny Flint-2 years old & Mom

I’m not a mom, and am not sure if I ever will be, but there are lots of moms I love, including this one...mine!

That’s it for today, beauties. Any randomness you care to share?

Have a wonderful day!

An impromptu (and stupid!) trip to Will’s parents’ town to change our phone plans in the midst of a snowstorm (we sat there 3.5 hours and they still didn’t get it all right...), snuggles on the couch watching movies, church online, chores, pizza and play dates with my sweet niece (and time with my parents too!).

It was a very nice weekend. After the crazy snowy road trip, the rest was spent safely at home.
