Oklahoma getaway

I'm finally getting around to posting pictures from my Oklahoma trip. I was actually waiting to get the rest of the pictures from a friend, but I guess this will have to do.
I drove up to Beavers Bend, OK a couple of weeks ago. I left Dallas around 5pm. It's a 3 hr. trip, but somehow it turned into a 5 hr. trip. I drove by myself, which wasn't bad until it got dark and the road turned into 2 lanes. I ended up taking a wrong turn which threw me off schedule. Then I had the hardest time finding the cabin. Literally the direction the front desk gave me were "go over one hill and half way up the second hill will be a dirt road on the left. Follow that around and there will be another dirt road on the left." I never would have found it if Kyle hadn't rescued me.
Finally everyone got there a little after midnight. We ended up drinking and getting in the hot tub.
Saturday we woke up and had breakfast. Then we went on a hike. I was pretty surprised that I finished it. I'm definitely not the hiking type. After the hike Kristin, Stacey, and I went to a winery in town. We did some shopping and had some wine. When we got home we made dinner: hot dogs and veggie kabobs. And of course we ended the night in the hot tub!
Sunday we got up and had breakfast. Then we packed up and headed home. It was a short trip, but much needed. Next time we will have to stay longer and drive down during the day.

Happy Birthday John Lennon

If you know me at all, you know that I LOVE John Lennon. He is my favorite Beatle and so inspirational. I can't believe he would be 70!

Lately I've been on a Supernatural kick. The Winchester brothers are smokin hot. And both of the actors are from Texas!

Last days of September

Thursday (Sep. 23) was the Kings of Leon & Black Keys concert. My friend Melissa picked me up and we ate at Twisted Root burger. Then we headed over to the concert and met up with Amber. The weather was perfect and we found a great spot on the lawn. I snuck in my camera and got some pictures of the lovely men from KOL.

Saturday was Audrey's 1st birthday party and also Amber's birthday. That night we all went out to eat at Mariano's and then we went out for drinks. Here is the present I made for Amber.

I also made her a pumpkin cake.

Sunday I delivered the wedding cupcakes to the fundraiser, and Mom and I had lunch at Vera Cruz in Oak Cliff.

Tuesday was my first day of subbing. I had a half day of subbing 5th graders. It wasn't as terrifying as I thought, but it did drain all my energy. My first week went pretty good. I even had 2 students draw me pictures :)

This weekend I went out of town to Oklahoma, but I will blog about that later.

But I do have some pictures to share from the weekend that my friend Becca was in town.
