Because I'm Terrible at Scrapbooks

No Boys Allowed!

That’s right, girls, no boys allowed. Well- at least for a couple weeks.

I gave Will quite possibly the best Christmas present I could have ever come up with-

A trip home to see the Oklahoma Sooners play their season opener as well as the highly anticipated OU-Miami game.

The OU-Miami game is HUGE. I don’t know if they’ve ever come to Norman, and if they have- it’s been a long time since their last visit.

The idea of Will going home in September first came up a few months ago when he was talking about how bad he wanted to go to the OU-Miami game.

We were lying in bed and I sort of jokingly said, “Well- you could make that your Christmas present from me.”

I wasn’t exactly expecting him to jump out of bed and make travel arrangements- but, I should have known better. Will is not a fan. He’s a fan-ATIC. Or maybe a fan ADDICT. Yes, Will is an OU Addict.

So, here we are a few months later. Will is smiley and bright and shiny and I’m blah and dull and drab.

Alright, so I’m lying a little.

Will has been looking forward to not only the games, but also spending some time with his dad. He’s really excited about that too. I know how much this trip means to him, so I’m trying to be just as cheerful. It’s hard! Not only is he going to the states to have SO MUCH FUN, but we’re totally “breaking our streak” of not being apart for more than a few days.

Yeah- I’m a major loser. “Aw, poor Brittny won’t get to see her husband for a couple weeks.”

Yeah, yeah. Ann, you can’t scoff okay? I don’t know how you military wives do it!

So, no boy for a couple weeks.

Boz doesn’t count.

Thank God for sisters!

Although I’m feeling a little sad that I’m staying behind, my sister and I are going to “bach” it while Will is gone. It should be fun. This will be the last time me and P will be able to spend this much time alone before she goes off to college next year. I’m really looking forward to sharing the apartment with her for a while. Not only that, but it means I get to try new restaurants Will hates and go shopping for “I missed you and needed some comfort” clothes. Mrs. M- I’m taking my que from you.

I feel bad for saying this, but I’m sort of looking forward to this weekend with P. Does that make me a terrible wife!? I hope not. Heck, if that’s the case Will is a terrible husband because the guy is so excited about getting on that plane.

I don’t think that makes us bad spouses.


Anyway- I’m going to enjoy these next few days with Will, but also look forward to living with P for a little while.

I’ll keep you posted. I’m sure I’ll have lots of fun stuff to talk about! smile
