The Automobile Chronicles (Part 2)

You can view The Automobile Chronicles (Part 1) here!!

We are so excited about our new car!!
To be completely honest, it was very bittersweet! I absolutely LOVED my Jeep Wrangler, and I wasn't completely sure on the thought of giving it up, but when it came down to it, we decided to trade it in!

Oh the Golden Goddess...
I loved loved loved my jeep!! That was the first car I owned and I always knew I would have another one. I still have that mind set. I know I will have another one, one day! We have had this jeep awhile, so there are lots of great memories from it, but I think my favorite was this past summer. I think it was a Sunday evening and the weather was just PERFECT. We had the top off (perfect for being a teacher because we usually left the top off all summer!) and we just wanted to go driving around. We put our favorite songs on and just drove around. It was just a fun, almost surreal evening. I can't even explain it, but when we were driving I just felt like everything in the world was perfect and in place! That might have been one of the last times we drove around with the top off! 

Now onto the HONDA PILOT! A friend of mine was in the car with us when we bought it and said "from Golden Goddess to Snow White" and it stuck!! I love my new Snow White!!
I am loving driving it so favorite part: HEATED SEATS!! I'm also loving XM Radio!! I don't think I knew what I was missing!!

We, along with 98% of the people in Tulsa, got tickets to GARTH BROOKS!!! Trevor saw him some 17 years ago when he was a kid and always tells me that that was his favorite concert! So, of course we had to go this time!! There might not be another opportunity! We went this past Friday night and our tickets were really good (thanks Bullocks)! We ate dinner at our friends, Andrew and Katie's before the concert. We figured trying to go out to eat would be a little hectic, so we got take out from Ted's and then headed to the concert!

Waiting patiently!!

I'm not sure I heard much of Garth singing because Trevor was singing so loud in my ear! I'm just glad he was loving it!!

Garth and Trisha!

We got this picture thanks to the selfie-stick!! And of course, Trevor was too busy singing to pay any attention to a photo being taken!

SERIOUSLY, ONE OF THE BEST CONCERTS I'VE BEEN TO!! If you didn't get a chance to see him, I would recommend traveling to his next concert city! I loved that he seemed so humble and that each night he slightly changed a couple of the songs that he did! So neat!!

The New Year!

This year has started off on a great note! We have been busy busy busy in a good way! We have gotten to see several friends, we have had nights in where we fell asleep at 8:30 and we have had nights where we stayed out til 3! 

On January 2nd we hosted the bowl game party at our house (the Cactus Bowl). We made a couple dips and people brought some yummy treats over as well! I can't believe we pulled out a win!! GO COWBOYS!! I think it had something to do with me and Trevor wearing pants America's brightest Orange!

On Saturday we made kind of a last minute trip to OKC to see one of Trevor's friends who is leaving for the military soon. We wanted to hang out with him one last time before he left. I was also so excited because I got to see one of my best friends that night!
Love you Meredith!!

When we got in town we went to our friend Butcher's to get ready and then we went to Tapwerks for some foosball and pool. 

Then we headed to KDs for dinner! Trevor has been wanting to eat there since it opened, so his dream finally came true!! We had chicken and waffles! Delish!!

After dinner we went to the Wormy Dog Saloon. JB and the Moonshine Band was playing. We danced a little and the guys played more pool. 

Love these guys!

We stayed up way to late making great memories! Good luck Rhett!

This past week was my first week back at school. It was honestly a great first week back. I have an intern this semester, so that will be a learning experience for the both of us! 

This weekend was definitely a relaxing one. On Friday night I must have just been so tired from the whole week, I fell asleep at 7:30 and didn't wake up until 10 the next morning! Now that is a good nights sleep! On Saturday we got up and ran a few errands, then it was off to Stillwater! We bought basketball tickets and we're so excited to go since we hadn't been to one since college. 

It was such a good game against Texas! Luckily, toward the end of the game we broke away with a pretty good lead and ended up comfortably winning! GO POKES!!!

Our LifeGroup leaders gave us an awesome Christmas present. It was a mason jar filled with popsicle sticks. Each popsicle stick has a date/activity written on it. We decided to pull one out this weekend and we got "bowling". So we decided to go with our friends Shelby and Chapman after the OSU game. We had so much fun talking and hanging out with these two! 

What a great start to the new year!! Next up: GARTH BROOKS!!

It seems to always be a big deal what you choose to do for NYE. You want to start the New Year with a bang! This year we chose to do a couple things. First we went to dinner with our neighbors Randy and Cassie. We wanted to try a new restaurant, so we tried the Hutch Pantry in BA. I thought it was delicious! It has a nice ambiance and the food was really unique! The company was absolutely the best part!! I honestly can't tell you how lucky we were to get these two as neighbors! They have become some of our closest friends!! Love you two!! And we can't wait for "baby R" to arrive!!!

After dinner we went and hung out with our LifeGroup. These people are some of the most amazing couples I know! What a great group to hang out with while bringing in the new year!!

We literally stayed up until 5 in the morning just hanging out/talking/playing games! The ladies won playing Cranium!! Yayyy!! Then we found out what our Power Animal is! Trevor initially got a Swan and was not pleased with that, so we let him try again and he got a Bear. 

We all got a good laugh when I got my animal...
A TIGER!! 🐯 Ever since I started working at BA, Trevor always jokes that I'm "BA 'til I die!" So this really just reinforced that!! 


Luckily, we had nothing planned to do on New Year's Day except to sleep in, which is exactly what we did!!
It's already been an amazing start to 2015!!
