Wacky Weather

If you've never lived in Oklahoma I'm not sure you can fully understand the wacky weather that constantly goes on in this state.

For example:

When Sean and I returned to Oklahoma a couple of weeks ago we were greeted by full-force winds, then a brief snowstorm and Arctic cold.

Yesterday it was 74 degrees. Last night it stormed something fierce.

Today? A brisk 35 degrees.

I don't know the pioneers did it.

This weather drives me batty!

Since Christmas we haven't been up to much. Christmas night we busted out my new Trivial Pursuit 80's edition. I thought something centered on the 80's would be easy, but alas I was wrong. I did come away the winner though.

Sean and I have been going to the gym religiously, which is a good thing considering there are still a lot of tempting holiday goodies around. Not to mention that Mazzio's calizone I picked up last night.

Sean is getting into the college football bowl season and I'm trying to get around to seeing the rest of my friends and family and other little important tasks, like getting my hair cut and colored before I leave.

There's also taking Boomer to the vet for his health certificate, getting our car detailed and a few other things before we can leave the country. As of tomorrow we only have a week left here until we leave for Dallas. I can't believe moving to Italy is getting so close! I'm still uber nervous about the plane ride though. I had a dream the other night that a huge blimp crashed. Yeah...not a good dream to have prior to this trip.

I think sometime next week Sean and I are going to one of the fancy restaurants in town for a romantic dinner. My aunt gave us that dinner as a present, which was a welcome idea instead of the usual QVC oddities that we receive instead.

I hope all of you are having a wonderful Saturday!

I'm with you on the weather, it's the same thing here in Texas. I'm ready for it to be 70 and no wind!

Have a great dinner! My Grandma used to send us all these random things she would order us off the tv. We never knew what to expect. When she passed away and they were cleaning out her house, there were thousands of them. Guess she was ready for the next hundred years.

I can't imagine how you feeling moving to Italy so soon. I would be beyond nervous.. but what a great opportunity. How many of us can say we've lived in Italy?? I can't wait to hear how you're liking it.
Have fun with your dinner! We got gift cards for 2 different restaurants.. can't wait to use them!

I have totally put on at least five pounds in the last two weeks, very depressing. Those Trivial Pursuit games are so unexpectedly difficult for me as well!

Hey Girlie!!

Just poppin' in to say HIYA and hope you had a great Christmas!

I'm seriously SO stoked to hear about your new Italian life it's not even funny. You best put that Photoshop to use once you're there and show us all some amazing pics! :)

Good for you on all the gym time! I'm so excited to get back there on Monday! :)

What, you mean you don't miss those wacky, useless QVC gifts you were always so fond of?!??!??
I can't believe it's down to one week, that's soo crazy. Time's flying by way too fast! It seems like only weeks ago that you found out moving to Italy was an option, tear tear.

We are having the same wacky weather here in Wisconsin! Yesterday it got up to 60 and it poured all day long. This morning it was back down in the 20's and there was ice everywhere! This strange weather seems to be happening all over the country!

You must be getting so anxious/excited/nervous about the big move to Italy! I can't wait to read about what it's like there!

I think there has been crazy weather everywhere. Best of luck on the move and I can't wait to hear how it all goes! Have a Happy New Year!

Ohhhh Mazzio's calzone! I'm drooling on my keyboard.

Have a wonderful dinner! If you're in the Tulsa area, the Polo Grill in Utica Square is yummy and has a great romantic atmosphere. Let us know where you end up going for dinner :-)
