Weekend in Oklahoma/Texas!

I had a GREAT weekend...I was going to post yesterday but someone left the laptop in their locker at school (but I'm not going to name any names here ;)) We even got our new power cord in the mail too! I can't upload any pictures from my work computer, so this post is going to be without pictures post, but I am going to try and post the pictures tonight or tomorrow if that someone brings the computer home today.....On to my weekend!

Friday: I got up at about 4:30 AM! Yeah, it was way early and I was WAY tired! I made all my flight just fine and landed in Tulsa at 10:10am! Pretty good, huh? Especially for flying stand by! My mom and oldest sister Christine picked me up from the airport. On our way home, we stopped at the best ice cream/burger joint out there, aka Braums! (The sad thing is that they are only located in Oklahoma and the surrounding states) My strawberry shortcake sundae with cookies-n-cream ice cream definitely hit the spot! Friday afternoon I pretty much just hung out with my sister, her kids (Stirling and Emmi) and my mom! Then we met the rest of my siblings and their families (minus Karri and Jared) at my favorite Mexican restaurant, El Vaquero! The food was good as always and it was fun to go with my family! After dinner, we went to watch the new James Bond movie! Shortly after we left the movie theater, Christine and I noticed that we had a flat tire! Logan and James were then our knights in shining armor and they fixed the flat tire. I was sooo exhausted at that point, that I just went back to my mom's, showered and went to bed.

Saturday:We got up quite early. We were suppose to leave at around 8am, but because of the flat tire, we had to wait around until like 9 or 9:30 in order to get the tire fixed...We made there in time to change into Sunday clothes and be inside the Dallas Temple at the appropriate time. Karri looked beautiful in her dress and even though she had green hair the day before, her hair looked beautiful as well. The rest of the day was filled with wedding activities! The whole day seemed very chaotic, but it all worked out in the end. I ended up staying in a hotel with my mom, step dad, brother and sister in Dallas. We took our time getting up; no one really got out of bed before 10am. Then they took me to the Dallas airport....It was hard to say goodbye to my family! I love and miss them so much! I can't wait til I can go back down and visit them all again. I sat around Dallas for a couple hours waiting for my flight and then sat in St Louis for an hour or so and finally made it home at about 10:30pm! It was a great weekend, but it definitely went by too fast.
Monday: Monday morning came WAY too fast that's for sure! I was totally exhausted, but work had to come but I did wake up to SNOW! I do love snow! It's soo beautiful (I'm sure come February or March I will want it gone though). I am totally not used to snow this time of year but I am enjoying it so far. The good thing on Monday was that Josh got up early to warm and scrape my car so I didn't even have to do it! Monday night, Josh went to a service project and what did I do? I watched Dancing with the Stars! I think I am totally addicted to this show! I REALLY like watching it! OK...well I better get back to work. I will post pictures soon though!
