My Stalker

I have a stalker. It is a green xterra. I'm not sure why it is stalking me, but it is. I live in Broken Arrow, but I work in downtown Tulsa and I see it everywhere. In the mornings it is next to me on the highway. This weekend I saw it at the Albertson's I was shopping at in BA. It is a very recognizable xterra. It has two window decals with kids names and sports numbers on the back, so I know it's the same one. I thought I was too old to have a stalker. Well, I guess you are never too old to have a stalker, but I did think I was past that point in my life where it would be a problem. I'm sure the xterra has no plans to harm me, but you never know. I'm going to remain cautious until I learn more.

We are currently remodeling the guest room. I can't tell you how excited I am. The paint job looks amazing. Kody is refinishing some furniture in a gorgeous dark stain. All that HGTV watching is finally paying off.

In other news, Bailey the Dog chewed up our hose. That was special.

Transformers....Robots in Disguise

Harry Potter comes out tomorrow! I can hardly wait.

Go see Transformers. Well worth the money and time spent in the theater. It's long, but it doesn't feel like. Shia LeBouf aka Louis Stevens is fabulous. I have to say I was not optimistic about how I would react to the movie, but I was pleasantly surprised. I generally don't like action movies, but this one made me happy.

Six day countdown til my birthday. Half way to fifty! Yikes, I'm getting old.

I feel boring today so that is all I'm writing. Deal with it. :)

Cake and eBay

This weekend kind of marks the end of an era. It's the last weekend this summer that Kody and I are both "required" to be in Edmond. Required is probably the wrong word because we love the reason we have been down there, wedding cake! I do love me some wedding cake. Anyway, today is actually my dad's birthday, so we will also be partaking in birthday cake. My mom and I had planned to take him to a nice dinner at Cattleman's Steakhouse downtown, but he decided he would rather go eat at IHOP and see Transformers. He's funny like that. Saturday is Lindsay and Nate's wedding. It looks like they are going to have some really nice, hot weather. Luckily it is in the evening so sweating shouldn't be too much of a problem. I love seeing my friends gets married. I feel lucky that I have been able to witness so many of my friends marriages. It truly is a privilege.

In other news, I have been researching outdoor ceiling fans. Kody is redoing the back patio and building a covered area for me for my birthday. I'm also currently in a bidding war on eBay to get Mario Kart for Nintendo 64, which we acquired from his brother I believe. It's the only video game I have ever liked that wasn't DDR, Guitar Hero, or Karaoke Revolution. If I get out bid I might flip out. Once I was in a bidding war for a t-shirt that said "Virginia, Virginia, Virginia". It was from the University of Virginia. Since my first name is actually Virginia I thought it would be a great shirt for me to have, plus it was cute. I ended up losing in the last 10 seconds. I emailed the girl that won and offered to pay her more for it, but she just laughed at me. Looking back on it I guess I was pretty silly, but that's the way I roll.

America the Beautiful

Happy 4th of July! Ok sure, it's a day early, but who is really going to take time to sit down and blog on the 4th of July? Maybe that's not such a good questions because there is always a chance that I will, but I'm not so it's ok.

Tonight Kody and I are heading to OKC to see Chicago in concert. I don't feel prepared. I need to know the words to the songs so I can sing along, but other than "Your The Inspiration" I think I'm going to fail miserably. I'm looking forward to a nice, relaxing evening outside. I just pray that it doesn't rain! I was in Bartlesville last night, where Kody's family is moving, and I have never seen flooding like that before. Pictures don't do it justice when you see it in person. I had to run by Lowe's so I could get a RCA cord for the DVD player so I could work out. Yes, only I would be out in a flood buying a RCA cord so I could workout, but that's not the point. The point is the entire parking lot up to the sixth or seventh row was flooded. Craziness. It blows my mind how that is even possible. Mother nature is very interesting.

In honor of the 4th I thought I would give everyone some fun 4th of July facts:

1. The Declaration of Independence was adopted on July 4, 1776, but it was not declared a legal holiday until 1941! Tomorrow marks the 4th of July's 66th birthday! Happy Birthday 4th of July.

2. A representative who was passionate about the Declaration of Independence rode horseback 80 miles to break the tie in support of independence.

3. "The Star Spangled Banner" is set to the tune of the English drinking song, "To Anacreon in Heaven".

4. Uncle Sam first became popular during the War of 1812, but he wasn't adopted as a national symbol until 1961.

5. George Washington first held public office at the age of 17.

I'm craving a Cherry Coke Zero and a slice of America's birthday cake.
