Wonderful

adjective inspiring delight, pleasure, or admiration; extremely good; marvelous. All of those adjectives is how I would describe Sunday. I turned 29. What a day it was. I don't have much to say other than the very definition of "wonderful". We have lived in Oklahoma for 3 1/2 years and had not yet visited Oklahoma … Continue reading Wonderful

Outside or In?

What would you choose? This time of year feels like a no brainer. Just last night, I got to spend my evening sitting on the back porch watching the Oklahoma lightning storms make their way north. The frogs were carrying on their evening bantering like old men sweating it out in the sauna. They are … Continue reading Outside or In?

Christmas in October

Yes, that's what we did during a pandemic. We celebrated all the Holidays coming up before things get worse. I even decorated. I put up our tree and decorated for Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years. We had a full house hosting my "in loves" for the past two weeks. I loved every minute. Movies, … Continue reading Christmas in October

Overlanding: Done Waiting

"Today is the day that the Lord has made. Let us rejoice and be glad!" Waiting. People spend a lot of time waiting in their lives. Waiting in line. Waiting on the phone. Waiting for pick up... But even deeper... Waiting on the Lord. Waiting for a plan to happen. Waiting for answers. Waiting for … Continue reading Overlanding: Done Waiting

A Walk to Work

It's a long story, but the results are really good...good for me, my health, my mornings, and also good for my wallet.

Being … Continue reading A Walk to Work

Exploring “Spots” in Oklahoma

We spent Sunday afternoon driving around southern Oklahoma. We have a coffee table travel book we picked up a few years ago from the Oklahoma Visitor's Center. It's based off of region, so if we feel like driving east, there is a whole section of "must sees and do's" in that part of the state. … Continue reading Exploring “Spots” in Oklahoma

Prepping for Weather

Oklahoma is notorious for bad weather. Tornadoes, yes. Rain, yes. But hail? Also, yes. Since President Clinton moved the National Weather Center of the United States to be located in Oklahoma in 1998, the weatherman have been ecstatic. Did you know that Oklahomans are CRAZY about their weather?? THEY. LOVE. IT. It is the thing … Continue reading Prepping for Weather

The Whole Place to Ourselves

We moved to Oklahoma 3 years ago to very aggressively pay off debt. But living in the City had it's challenges when trying to do recreational activities on a budget. We learned to enjoy free hobbies like parks, disc golf playing, going to "shop" for RV's (but really to just look at all the layouts … Continue reading The Whole Place to Ourselves

Morning Walks and Thoughts on the Coming Fall

The first crisp morning. There is something so soothing about those warm summer mornings we had in June and July. It's just cool enough to enjoy a cup of coffee on the back porch, but just warm enough to be comfortable wearing just a tank top and shorts (let's be honest, I'm really wearing PJs). … Continue reading Morning Walks and Thoughts on the Coming Fall
