More Random Stuff

Today will be a random assortment of stuff. Mostly because I don't have much time.

So, yeah, never buy the Scotch/3M tape dispenser from the grocery store. Piece of junk broke the first time I swiped it across a box. But it was the only one they had.

This is what we have been living out of since our HHG left on Monday. Glamorous, huh? :)

So we have made it one of our goals this week to buy as much OU paraphernalia to take with us as possible. I found these adorable yoga pants at Walmart the other day. This logo is on the hip. Isn't it perfect? :)
And this...this is one of my favorites dishes from one of our favorite restaurants in OKC. Bella Vista's Ziti alla Vodka. Amazing. I will miss this place so much.

Tonight we are opening up the house to anyone who wants to drop by and say bye. I almost didn't do this, it seemed like throwing a party for yourself. But, then I remembered how, earlier this year, some friends of ours were leaving and we weren't sure exactly when - and then suddenly, one day on facebook, they were "settling into their new place" in a whole different part of the world. And I was so sad, because I felt robbed of the chance to say goodbye to them. I didn't want to do that to our friends. It's not fair. So, tonight, I hope we get the chance to say goodbye to everyone, but if not, we'll always have facebook and the blogs.

  5. I love yoga pants! So was it 3 or 4 years ago OU was in the Fiesta Bowl? I was there and because all my in-laws were cheering for the other team, I screamed my heart out for OU. I also am like drooling over that ziti. I am a pasta fiend and that looks incredible.

  7. Love the yoga pants!!!! :)

    I think the "party" is a great idea! It is nice to see everyone before you leave. :) I wish I had done that before I left Vegas.
