You Know You're An Okie if You Stand Outside to Watch the Tornado Instead of Taking Cover...

As I'm sure most of you have heard, a tornado swept through Chickasha two days ago.
This F-3 not only destroyed most everything in it's path, but it even took a life.  

Fortunately, the tornado hadn't touched the ground when it went over our house.  
Neighbors one mile away weren't as lucky.  

*These are all pictures of the same tornado and the aftermath

It was right above my house when this was taken


You can't see it in the picture but that's a car dealership that got destroyed

Please keep all the people who lost their homes and/or loved ones in your thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.

Until next time,

Awkward & Awesome Thursday, Edition 13


Not remembering a guy's name after having been introduced to him AT LEAST three times (I am horrible with names).

Aforementioned guy awkwardly standing behind me waiting for me to acknowledge his presence, then not walking away after I do so.

Said guy then asking me (in front of several people) to go eat with him after church next Sunday and me not being able to come up with a reason not to, so I said "Umm...(insanely long, awkward pause)...I guess we could do that...I'll see you next Sunday...."  Then rushing away.

Having to call multiple people, asking for his name AND phone number so that I could "dump" him.

Wrecking one of the units at work...yeah, I did that...


My new car--I'm absolutely in love :)

Driving with the top all the way open in my new car !

Working with a shop full of guys...there's never a dull moment!

Headlines, Edition 9

Remember my blog post about the Chickasha man trying to steal a chainsaw by stuffing it in his pants?

Well, that wasn't the end of Chickasha making the news for case you haven't seen it/read it in the news, a Chickasha couple has now been arrested for stealing meat.  
How did they steal it, you might ask? 
That's right, they stuffed it in their pants!! 

Read about it here.

Lana Lately

I booked my annual Lisa/Lana vacation today.  

Every year we do fun things for our birthdays:
2008: Skydiving
2009: New York vacation
2010: Jamaica vacation

Any guesses what we're doing this year??

Drumroll please...

We're going back to New York! Yay!  
We absolutely loved New York and can't wait to go back.  
It will be my third time to the Big Apple!

On another note...
Guess who ordered PINK notary supplies and is absolutely stoked to use them??
That's right--this girl!
(see below)

And yes, I did photoshop out my address, phone number, and Commission Number. lol. I'm not the best photoshop-er though :(

All New Low...

This will definitely be on my next Awkward & Awesome Thursday Post, but I couldn't resist sharing early.  
I hit an all new low...for even me--I dumped a guy who I'm not even dating through a TEXT MESSAGE!

Not only did I not have his phone number, I didn't even know his name!!  
I actually called people describing the guy and asking for his phone number so that I could cancel our date that I was too kind-hearted to decline in the first place.
Then I didn't want to deal with the awkwardness so I just sent him a text.
I'm not even positive he gets texts, because he never replied.
Let's be real though, what could he have possibly said to salvage the situation? lol.

For future reference, if you want to ensure that I'll say yes to a date,
ask me after church in front of lots of people--
just make sure I don't get your phone number before the date :)

I know, I'm a horrible person.
I'm sure karma will catch up with me...

Until next time,

Living the Life

I apologize for not posting in what seems like forever--I refuse to be one of those bloggers who doesn't blog for months on end, so let me give you an update!

First of all, there was no Monday Lustday Post yesterday because, at the moment, there is absolutely nothing I want. 

Last week, I started my new job (which I absolutely love); used my 25% off Coach coupon to buy a new Coach purse AND sunglasses; then, last night, I finally bought my new car!!  

It took me a long time to figure out what I wanted, but when I saw this car I literally KNEW it was the one for me (maybe that's how I'll know when I meet the "right" guy? One can only hope! ha ha).  Anyways, it's a Jeep Liberty with a fully opening roof--almost like a convertible!

My only complaint so far is that when the roof is closed and you're driving down the interstate it's pretty loud.  But that's just even more reason to blare my radio, right?? ha. Like I need a reason!

Anyways, life is pretty great right now (at least until I get the first bill for my car ha ha). 

Until next time,
