Mamma Mia!

Dr. Webb called yesterday afternoon and said he had two extra tickets to Mamma Mia if Doug and I wanted to go. Of course I wanted to go! We didn't buy tickets when they went on sale because we are always so busy on the weekends, I don't like to plan too far ahead. As the show got closer to coming to town I was wishing we had purchased some. So, "Thank you" Dr. Webb for the tickets ~ and our seats were fabulous!
Yep! It's official ~ Doug and I *will* be participating in the March of 1000 Flaming Skeletons again this year! We had a blast last year and decided to do it again. Here we are in our scary makeup:

Here we are in costume (I'm not chunky, I just have BIG BONES!)(Ha! Ha!)

1000 Flaming Marching Skeletons:

If you are going to be in the Oklahoma City area on October 24th, you can participate too! Just click here for the details and to sign up!

We have our New Year's Eve all planned already too! We will be attending the Flaming Lips Concert for the third year in a row at the Cox Convention Center. Last year we had back stage passes although there was so much smoke we didn't stay back there for too long. We were lucky enough to have our pictures taken with Wayne Coyne and then went to our seats to enjoy the show!

Can't wait to do it again this year!

Other than that, looking forward to GETTING MARRIED in just a couple of weeks!!! Then Wendy is coming for a visit. Can't wait!

Less than three weeks!

And Doug and I will be heading to Maui to get married! Can hardly wait!The location is picked out, the minister and the photographer are supposedly all set. Now, just to figure out what we are going to wear. Better get going on that one!
Wish I could report something exciting going on around here but lately it's just been work, work, work for both Doug and me.
Doug did get to go to the Chickenfoot concert last night at the Brady. Tonight we went to dinner at Redrock (yes, again!)It's always good, just too much food. So much for being on the straight and narrow...
Well, I've had just about enough of this day and this little guy has the right idea:

Good night!

She was here but now she's gone...

and I'm really going to miss her!

My sister January came to Tulsa to visit me for a few days and what fun we had! We went out to eat The first night she arrived, we went to McGills. It was delicious. We shared the mushroom caps stuffed with spinach and herbs and covered in cheese. Doug and I shared the Shrimp cocktail -mmmmm. For our meals, Doug was good and had the lite plate which consists of a sirloin patty, various fresh fruits and sherbert (which I ate). January had the chicken picatta and I had the chicken marsala. Delicious, but we could hardly move we were so stuffed after we finished eating.
The other places we ate during her stay:
Oliveto (twice)(Chicken Scallopine for both of us - both times!)
Oscars - appetizers: fried green beans, quesadillas, artichoke dip and something else I can't remember right now.
Red Rock - Jan: Steak, Me: Ribs, Doug: Salmon
Louies: Burgers of course!
Custard King:

She couldn't leave town without having a custard! I think I gained 10 pounds during her stay.
We also did some shopping - scored some cute boots at Shoe Carnival during their BOGO (buy one, get one 1/2 off sale) event.

We went to the Oklahoma Aquarium on Sunday and had lots of fun. That is where the above picture is from.
Of course, Doug and I had to take our "self shot":

But, she had to get back to Connecticut for the beginning of classes, and sadly, I have to go back to work. For those of you lucky enough to have your sister's living close to you, appreciate it. It was fun having her here while it lasted!

In the meanwhile, it is four weeks until we leave for Hawaii! FOUR WEEKS! I can't wait but I am definitely on the straight and narrow. See that picture at the beginning of this post? If I left today I'd be looking like a beached whale in my bathing suit. So, for the next four weeks I am going to be good. No lunches out today ~ no dinner out either. I am marinating shrimp to throw on the grill along with some veggies. I have been working on a meal plan for the week too. Let's see if I can drop a few lbs. before our trip.

This morning I went for a 5K. I walked/jogged. Believe me, I didn't want to move but I did it and I'm happy I did. January's flight was at 6:45 this morning and since I was already up and moving I figured I might as well go. Yay me!
