Go State

I promised you a pic and here it is:

The weather was beautiful (actually maybe a bit too hot), the game outcome was great (we beat Baylor!), and best of all, I had no hangover on Sunday as I only drank 2 beers. Ahh, the joys of a 30+ year old.

Hey Ya'll

Sorry for the August and September hiatus. I started a new job and was unable to figure out how to post during work hours. I probably should technically not be doing this during work hours, but let's just say I am on a smoke break. At one of my old jobs, I would literally take "smoke breaks" just so I could get out of the building. You can say that I was pretty miserable if I was desperate enough to inhale smoke for 10 minutes.

I was in Arkansas this past weekend for my parent's 40th wedding anniversary. Get this - I DO NOT HAVE ONE PICTURE FROM IT!! I am very disappointed with myself that I was a let down in this area. We had a great turnout and after Mom was over the intial shock, I think she enjoyed it. Luke and Kenni loved the idea of helping throw a party, but once they realized that it is not all fun and decorating, that you actually have to pick up everything you put out, they were not so enamored with the idea.

I also need to point out that I get Aunt of the year award (not that I had much competition) as I went swimming with the kids in rather nippy water. I was actually the last one standing in the water - six year olds even thought it was cold. If Dad had the boat in the water I would have taken a last ski for the year, but no luck. In addition to the swimming, I bought Goonies and Gremlins for the kids. They loved them. Goonies was a little scary, but the Gremlins was a giggle fest for them. That is, until they dropped the laptop (they had no idea what happened!) and I had to take it away from them. Uggh, it really sucks to be mean sometimes.

My roommie was in North Carolina working last month and he is home now, so life will get back to our crazy normal. Ya know, our calendar revolving around KSU. We are heading to our 1st football game of the season, against Baylor. Let's hope we can keep the momentum from last weekend going!! I promise to provide some pics in the next post. I realize that reading is much less entertaining when there are no pics.

Patti the Co- Pilot

A few weekends ago, I went to an air show. I was not thrilled about this excursion, but it was mostly because it was so darn hot. Truth be told, I really enjoyed it. I have this secret desire to have an airplane (not so secret anymore!), but I know since I am directionally challenged, the best I could ever do was co-pilot. My roommie bought me a ride on a PT-19 - it was a open cockpit plane that was used for training back in the day (I won't embarrass myself and try to give a date, I think the plane dates back to the 30's, but again, I really don't know).

My roommie expected me to be a little scared, but I wasn't at all. The thing I was most scared about was me getting in the plane in a dress. Good news all, no undies display occurred. The flight was a 20 minute flight, but felt like 5 since I had so much fun. We even did a touch down (touched down on the strip and zoomed back up).

Born to be Wild

Some people just are, and well, others aren't. However, some things are mind over matter and this guy proves this point:

This guy is happily scooting along but yet feels the wind in his hair and the roar of the engine, the flutter in his heart as all of the ladies are whistling at his sexy ride. He is so damn happy on his Harley, I mean scooter. How do I know this?

His license plate, of course!!

Sort of hard to read, but it says Harley Davidson at the top and "Live to Ride"

Flaunt it if you got it!

Hi all!!

Sorry for the lag in posts this month. For the 4th of July holiday, roommie and I went to my parent's lake house. I forgot my camera but I prefer to not have my bikini pics on my page. The blog simply couldn't handle that kind of traffic. ha!

This past weekend, we spent our traditional anniversary and birthday weekend at the Plaza relaxing by the pool. Yes, it is a few weeks early, but we had to fit it in when we could. I would rather do it early than not at all!! No pics from this either. I know, I suck.

Today I am working from home, as trusty Charley is still having problems. I am currently sitting at the desk in the kitchen listening to Willie snore as he is sleeping on the kitchen table. Rough life he has!!

We bought this bowl in Charleston at a really cool store - SOM. I planned to put something in the bowl, but since I put it on table, Willie has practically lived in it. He likes his new bed!!

The big excitement of the day is this!! The first pics of my lil garden!! :)

Funny thing is, I am scared of hot stuff, but I will enjoy making salsa with my own japs. Oh yeah, I realized that green thumb is true! I was in my little garden picking weeds and proping up my tomatoes and when I came inside my fingers were green. I also realized that cucumbers are prickly. Just let them be.

Strawberry (finally!!), hay and my bike

I know you are tired of hearing about this damn strawberry. Don't worry, I won't write about each strawberry I produce. Here is the strawberry all ripe and ready to eat.

I must say it tasted soooo good. She was not a big strawberry, but enough for a few bites. Didn't require any sweetener at all.

We had a party this weekend, it was a hoe down. You can't have a hoe down without hay! Well, it was technically straw as straw was much cheaper than hay. We don't have a truck, so I had to use the Tahoe as my truck....It was a mess!!!!! Pic from the drivers seat.

In preparing for the hoe down, I went to the Goodwill looking for just the right outfit. I found my first 10 speed bike for sale (actually, one like it)! I loved this bike - the pink and grey....so lovely. I got this bike for Xmas one year and I believed it snowed that x-mas. I didn't care. I rode my bike on the front porch.

Strawberry Update

My strawberry is growing!! I think I may only have one strawberry to harvest this season, let's hope it tastes good!! I will not be sharing this with my roommie either.

I also planted a few tomato plants, cucumber, bell pepper and jalapeno plant. I only allowed myself a little room for my plants, behind some grasses, so it is hard to get a good picture. They are thriving from what I can tell. I am very excited about this. I hated the garden when I was a child (I actually remember telling my parents the only reason they had kids was so we could pick the beans), but I am loving this. I do not ever plan on having more than a few plants, but next year I do plan on extending out my garden to give me a little more growing room. More digging. Ugghhhhhh.

I did not plant watermelon, but I do have watermelon cookies to show you!! No, they are not watermelon flavored, they just are iced to look like watermelons (hopefully!!). I also tried to make strawberries .I didn't have a cookie cutter for a strawberry so I was trying to cut a strawberry shape, so as you can image, those flopped. That is what I am letting the other half eat. He is more than happy to eat the flops, in fact he came to bed with two in hand!! Sexy.
