Random Friday

Happy Friday!! We all know that this is my favorite day of the week!

Lee left this morning for Lincoln, Nebraska to go to the OU game up there. He is gone until Sunday :( While I will admit that I like my "me" time, I will also admit that I am a HUGE baby and I am scared to stay alone at the house. When he is gone, I don't sleep a wink. And the dogs freak out at every tiny noise because they are waiting for him to come home. It's so annoying. I was seriously going to pack it up and go stay with my parents, but my bff Mary is coming to save the day! Haha, why having her here makes me feel safer I don't know but it does!

I got my phone yesterday :) I know that I will become obsessed with it in time, but for right now all of the things you can do just baffles me so I am just ignoring all of the cool capabilities. Umm, except for facebook and words with friends. And shazam. I added those last night :) For now I'm just enjoying having a phone that I'm not embarrassed for people to see. I want to get a new email address with my new last name but I'm not sure about it. Not only because of my new married name, but also because my current email gets so much spam from various websites I have visited over the years. I use gmail and I must say that I do not like the set up it has. I've been thinking about going with Yahoo or something just because it's easier to organize things there. Does anyone have any suggestions?

I am so excited because I started seeing Christmas commercials last week! Thanksgiving and Christmas are my FAVORITE times of the year! And as excited as I am, it is hard to believe that Thanksgiving is going to be here in less than 3 weeks! That means only 2 more full weeks of work then a 5 day weekend! I've been saving up a lot of vacation to use over the holidays :) And I've been listening to Christmas music at work! Haha, I know it's a little early for that business but I don't care, it puts me in a good mood! Annnd, I've been thinking about putting up the Christmas tree!! I have never put up the tree before Thanksgiving, I usually do it the Friday or Saturday after, but this year I'm thinking it will go up earlier, mostly because I didn't decorate at all for Halloween or Thanksgiving and I usually do for both of those. We will have a dilemma this year as to where to put the tree since we installed the built ins in the living room, that's usually where the tree went, and there's really not another good place for it so we will just have to move some furniture around I think. We bought tickets to the Christmas Train yesterday. If you live around Tulsa and you haven't been to the Christmas Train, you should go!!! I have honestly never been before but I have heard it is amazing and they sell out of tickets early every year! We are going on the 19th of December.

I also want to get tickets for the TransSiberian Orchestra. I love them. We had tickets a couple of years ago, when we had to travel to Oklahoma City to see shows. Well, Lee's friends also had an engagement party later that night in Lawton, his hometown. So our plan was to go see the show (it must have been an afternoon showing) and then continue on to Lawton afterwards to go to the party. (OKC is exactly halfway between Tulsa and Lawton). But, as we were on the road, it started snowing like crazy! And then we missed the exit because Lee thought that he could be one of those drivers and sneak into the front of a huge line waiting to exit (probably all people trying to get to the same show). And because of the snow, we were already late and we weren't even off the highway yet. I hate being late for anything. And since we were already running so late it was ruined for me and we were stressed so we decided to just go on and skip the show and continue on to Lawton. Boo. We were obviously bummed. I was really bummed because I had been looking forward to it for a long time. And to make matters worse, Lee's mom kept bringing it up and talking about how sad it was that we missed it. YES WE KNOW LADY!! I shut myself in the bedroom because she was talking about it so much. Anyway, that was really long winded and we always said we would make a point of going again and now is our chance! But we need to actually make the decision and get the tickets.

Okay, I think that is all of the random useless information I have! Happy Friday and have a great weekend everybody!

I have no idea what the Christmas Train is, but now I'm intrigued! I'm loving all of the Christmas commercials and I can't wait to decorate (although I may hold off on the tree a few more weeks this year b/c last year it dried out too quickly!).
We have yet to officially start on Miss L's room...yikes. I did order fabric swatches today and have finally (FINALLY!) decided on the color scheme...I'll post my ideas soon. Happy Friday :)
