Well man..I said that September was going to be wedding month and here it is almost October and I haven't posted a darn thing about weddings. Well, better late than never.This is my favorite picture of me and the girls

I also really like this picture of Stephen. He's probably thinking, oh no...what have I gotten myself into...or that he loves me.

I loved all the flowers I chose for my wedding and the colors were amazing for the fall!
Here's a crazy picture to remind you of all the fun you had!!!!

Observations of being at home: Television

Since I've been unemployed I spend a lot of time at home. Sometimes I like to take a break from job searching and everything to watch a little telly. Mind you, we don't have cable so there is almost never anything good on. Here are my observations:

1) The View, with it's constant chatter is really annoying. And why is Kate Gosselin a guest host?

2) Dr. Oz is stupid. I watched one show, okay one segment of one show, to see what the hype was about and it was just lame. It's like they threw together a bunch of random topics at the last minute and then made people feel awkward while talking about them for 2 minutes.

3) Drew Carey's new hair-do is really gross. He also doesn't fit the role of being the host of Price is Right very well. It's like bbq sauce and carrots...they don't go.

4) Soap Operas are silly.

5) I have sometimes caught myself literally spending 10 minutes watching completely pointless infomercials. Abcircle Pro, some awesome Weed Eater, Hip Hop Abs, A thing that works the muscles in your neck, Magic Bullet, Lifestyle Lift, Swivel Sweeper, etc.

5) The Today show is kind of fun, but checking the weather every 8 minutes gets really old. I feel sorry for the weathermen in your local area that have to stand by and do that for 2 hours.

6) Ellen is the best thing to happen to morning television. And so is Tivo so I can watch it whenever I want.

7) Family Fued is pretty awesome and a great way to wind down at the end of the day. You can even kinda play along. I don't know the host's name but he's perfect for the job.

8) This anchor on Fox25 needs a new haircut.

9) This guy is my favorite news guy.

He literally tells the news just like it is and that is refreshing, unlike Kevin Ogle who is just down right obnoxious.

10) I have to go to my parents house to watch Project Runway. Love that show!!!

11) Network television is still a saving grace at primetime though. Here is what I have planned to record for this fall season.
- Biggest Loser
- The Office
- Community
- Mercy (I'll give it a shot)
- House
- Ellen
- Flashforward (we are intrigued to see what people saw in their future)

No Title

For dinner, I just made this really awesome chicken soup with wild rice and it was amazing! And we have leftovers which makes it doubly amazing. It is a Rachel Ray recipe that I got from this blog. Speaking of Rachel Ray...have you noticed that of her recipes calls for that apparently EVOO (extra virgin olive oil for you non rachel ray peeps) ?!'s like the food can't cook without it. All I'm saying is that 95% of the time you probably don't need it.

A while back I remember my running group discussing trying out a new route for our runs, but we didn't know how far they would take us. Someone suggested they would try and find something online that would map their run. Well go I finally googled "map my run". Low and behold, the site is pretty cool. I suggest all you people who walk or run or even bike to check it out!!!!

This past weekend, my family did some serious football tailgating. And by that I mean, eat ribs, drink beer, and play ladder ball.
And finally the moment we have all been waiting for...............................the final placement of tile!!!!!! With only this much thin set remaining.....

Happenings as of late.

My green pepper plants are making me so proud. I have about 23+ growing right now. Last week we were able to harvest two of them and eat them that night all grilled up. They were so delicous!!!!
Stephen and I ran in our first 10k at Lake Hefner on the 12th. Stephen ran a 56:36 and I ran a 1:07:57. Pretty darn good for 6.2 miles in humidity I'd say. That's the farthest I had ever ran, and I'm so thankful the course was flat. There wasn't as many people attending as I thought there would be, so I'm grateful that I was still able to pace with people that go my speed. What's my speed you ask...about a 9-10 minute mile.
My next race is going to be the Juke Joint Jog in Stillwater on Oct. 24. It's only a 5k but I'm going to shoot to come in under 30 minutes. I've got to shave 2 minutes off my previous 5k time!! I'm hoping all this training for a 10k is going to pay off!

To celebrate our 2 year wedding anniversary we went to The Melting Pot. I had never eaten there before and it was awesome. Probably really overpriced, but heck..for a special occasion I didn't really care. I love the dress I was wearing too. And you better believe that I bought it, wore it and returned it the next day. I'm so bad.
And I know you've been oh so curious about our bathroom project. We're almost done!!! I know I keep saying that, but really we are. We're going to have all the tile finished and grouted by Sunday afternoon. We installed the vanity and the granite guy has come by and measured for our countertop. So seriously...we just might have a usable bathroom in two weeks!!!!!
