Friday afternoon Hudson and I went to Vintage Market Days with my mom.  I don’t know how I thought that was a good idea being on the Contentment Challenge.  I had no will power!  I came away with a wooden growth chart, a paper mache letter H for Hudson’s room, and a silver tray.  I clearly felt disappointed after but am trying not to be too hard on myself.  I’m simply hitting the restart button and planning to avoid temptation!

The only photo I took.  Isn’t the Lick Your Lips Mini Donuts food truck just the cutest thing?

Friday night and Saturday morning I attended the Chazown experience at church.

The Chazown experience couldn’t have come at a better time with the Making Things Happen Conference next month.  I have been a little terrified going to such an event without a specific goal or dream in mind.  Now, I feel I have a truer sense of my purpose and can’t wait to see it come to fruition.  The Chazown experience will be coming back to my church in the Spring.  I have volunteered to help as a Veteran so please let me know if you are interested.  Would be happy to give you more info as it draws near.  Or if you’re not in Oklahoma they do offer Chazown online (click the link above).

Friday, I also helped chalk some signs for Ashley & Ryan’s wedding.  This was before I had cleaned it up a little…but you get the idea.

Saturday evening the couple were married on a rooftop on Cherry Street.  Everything turned out just beautifully!


Sunday I started the Advocare 24 Day Challenge.  Have been anxiously awaiting this day — so ready to feel healthy, energetic, and lose a few pounds in the meantime.

The rest of our day was spent lounging around the house and then an evening church service.   I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!

Summer is officially over for us…the kids start school this week, our neighborhood pool closed yesterday, and pumpkin spice lattes are back on the Starbucks menu (despite it being 90 degrees).  We had a busy Labor Day weekend but it was lots of fun!

Friday my mom kept the kids overnight so that Court and I could have a staycation of sorts.  We enjoyed lunch at Stonehorse Cafe, got massages, took a nap (I never nap!), and went out for an amazing dinner at Juniper which came highly recommended from Kylie.

Juniper was beyond delicious.  We started with cocktails — I had something called the Bee’s Knees which honeycomb infused vodka, lavender simple syrup, fresh squeezed lemon juice, and sparkling water.  Yum!  For dinner I had the browned butter trout with brussel sprouts and a cauliflower mash.  And then we wrapped up with an amazing porter peach cobbler with homemade vanilla ice cream.  I’m still dreaming about it.

Saturday my mom brought the kids back and we went for a dip in the pool before heading over to our friend’s house to watch the OSU game.  Here are the kids in their orange ready to cheer mom’s alma mater on:

Saturday night it was our friend and neighbor, Michael’s, 31st birthday party at Legend’s.  The kids had their friends over while we went out — they all brought sleeping bags, made a palette on the floor, and watched movies.  Thanks to Skye & Gloria for helping to wrangle our crew while we enjoyed some adult time.

Sunday, we attended church and then had my family over for a BBQ and an afternoon of swimming.

And Monday we wrapped up the holiday weekend with a BBQ and swim at our friend’s house.
