Latest Project

I have been wanting to recover my dinning room chairs for a long time and today I finally did it! I had a friend come over and help me or else I don't think I would have known where to begin. The project was pretty easy. It was no professional job, but I am proud of it. This is the same dinning room set I grew up with so it was time for a change.


Jesse and I had the hardest time deciding what color to go with (we have totally different tastes), but we finally agreed on red.


Other News:

This is my last week of work at the Ponca City Eye Clinic, after this week it is time to get serious in another job search in Bartlesville.

Jesse and I close on our house this Friday!

Secret Weekend Getaway

Jesse and I have become quite the travelers. The one advice we almost always hear from "older" married couples is "travel, travel, travel while you are a young married couple, because once you have children it will become more difficult to travel." We took that advice to heart and NO we are not ready to have children at this time (Just to clear that question up).

Jesse surprised me with a weekend getaway to St. Louis Missouri! I was allowed one question a day and he told me one clue a day, I never guessed it right.
Our first stop: Lambert's Cafe. Located in Ozark MO. A famous restaurant where they throw rolls at you. Lots of food...I think I gained weight just from that place.

Second stop: The Gateway Arch in St. Louis MO. Great view of the arch from our hotel room.

The elevator to ride to the top of the arch was tiny! It was called a "pod" and you could not even stand up in it. This was a challenge for me but I survived.

Jesse and I drove across the river into Illinois, I have no idea where we were at but we wanted our picture in Illinois so we just pulled over and took one. Not much to look at.

These trees were everywhere and I loved them.

These are the blooms on the trees. Anyone know the name of this tree? I want one!

Third Stop: The Anheuser-Busch Factory. Jesse likes factory tours, I had never been on one and it was free! Three great reasons to go. It was sad however to see so many parents (with their kids on their hips) were already inebriated before the tour even started, we saw a lot of "white trash" America.

A great Photo Opportunity...

Final stop: Six Flags! We are still kids at heart.

More House Photos

Jesse and I went on a weekend getaway this past weekend (all of which I will blog about on my next post). Our first stop was our house (well almost) in Bartlesville. We just stopped by to take a few pictures of the exterior since we did not have any. Enjoy!

Contract pending, that's us!

The house already has great landscaping.

Stay tuned for the post on Jesse's secret weekend getaway for me!
