a fun weekend!

so, my computer is STILL NOT FIXED {i apologize to all my photography clients!  i am hoping that i get it back monday.}!  i am getting more and more behind with things b/c the geek squad is taking their sweet time!  luckily i had a fun filled weekend to occupy myself. 

my sister was in town, so friday night the family went to dinner and a movie.  saturday morning i got up early to go garage saling with my dad and sister.  there were multiple neighborhood sales, which i might add are crazy and dangerous to all drivers!  people parking on both sides of the street so that only one vehicle can pass, doors opening out of's dangerous people...dangerous!  everyone was out looking for garage sales saturday.  unfortunately the ones we found weren't that great.  maybe next time. 

after garage saling i went to the cherry street farmers market with sarah.  lots of fresh onions, lettuce and radishes everywhere.  as well as a really yummy chocolate croissant for sarah and a ham and cheese croissant for me.  then it was onto utica square where we hit up banana republic for some good sales!  and got really excited about the new anthropologie store that is going in where the harold's store use to be.  yea...really excited!  if you don't know about anthropologie, you should...checki it out!  i must say thought, you won't get the full experience until you actually visit a store.  i think it is opening in august some time, so mark your calendars! 

after hanging out with sarah i met up with mymichael and we had lunch at siegi's, which we had never tried before.  it is both a meat market and a restaurant that serves fresh made bratwurst, sausage and a bunch of other stuff.  apparently it has been around for a long time in tulsa, but they just relocated into a new building.  we both really enjoyed the food and the atmosphere.  i would highly suggest you try it!  once our bellies were full we headed home to pack up for oklahoma city. 

mymichael and some of his co-workers were on a relay team that ran in the okc memorial marathon.  instead of getting up at 3 in the morning and driving to the city sunday morning, we decided to get a hotel room there and spend the evening in bricktown.  using the urbanspoon application on my iphone we found the wedge pizzeria in deep deuce....which is very close to bricktown.

we read the review and thought, what the heck, we will give it a try.  wow!  i am glad we did!  we both love pizza, especially brick oven pizza.  this was a super cool, laid back restaurant with a great patio.  it was a beautiful night, so we enjoyed our food outside. 

we got their flatbread appetizer that has hummus, olive tapenade and marinated artichokes. 

one word, delicious. 

then we got the "shuffle truffle" pizza.  chicken, sage, mushrooms drizzled with truffle oil. 

it was fabulous! 

so, definitely put it on your "i want to eat here" list and try it out when you are in okc.  we will be going back!

bricktown was extremely hopping...the thunder vs. laker game...a baseball game....high school proms and more.  it was a great people watching time!  now tell me, it may just be mymichael and i but don't you think those high school kids keep looking younger and younger?

sunday morning we were up at 4:45am to get ready and out the door for the race.  we didn't stay in bricktown/downtown, so we had a bit of a drive.  as we got closer we realized a lot of people didn't stay in bricktown and we were stuck in traffic at 5:45 in the morning.  this was the first time that we had been to the memorial marathon, so we just had to kind of guess at what we needed to be doing.  they told us that there were shuttles to the different legs of the relay and that i could ride with him to his starting point, catch a bus back to the bus station and then another bus to his finishing point.  so that's what we did.  worked great on the way there.  we stood around in the freezing cold with what felt like 40 mile wind waiting for his hand off.  i actually didn't even see him leave b/c i was looking for his team mate while mymichael spotted him, made the exchange and took off.  oh well i thought...i'll catch him finishing which is what really counts, right? 

mymichael was running the 7.3 mile leg and said it would probably take him around an hour.  so, i headed over to catch a bus.  as i got there {at 8:11am} the bus filled up and took off.  there were probably 10 of us that didn't get on.  not a problem, i'll catch the next one.  25 minutes later another bus finally came.  but instead of stopping where the last bus stopped, and where we were standing, it went all the way down the road.  during the wait there were probably 100 more runners now waiting for a bus as well, so the people at the end of the line run down and the bus fills up in no time.  the next bus takes 35 minutes to come and i will now officially miss mymichael finish.  that bus fills up and leaves.  at this point i am beyond pissed.  so i decide i will call a cab.  i locate where i am on my iphone, i download the "taxi" application and am about to call when a lady says she has 3 more busses on their way.  i wish i had gone ahead with the taxi, but i waited, as they completely tore down all the snacks and everything at that location.  i was on the last bus that left....1 hour and 45 minutes later.  by now i am thinking its stupid to go to mymichaels finishing point b/c who knows if he will be there {he left his cell phone with me}.  luckily i waited at the bus stop and he got there about 10 minutes later.  all i can say is............
there were actually people who missed their legs of the relay b/c the bus did not get them there in time!  now that would be frustrating.  their relay team did really well..if i remember correctly they placed 18th out of 118 teams in their division.  not bad and i think they all had a good time.

we headed back to t-town exhausted.  once home, i went to put some sheets into the dryer from the washer, it ran a couple of minutes and i smelled something burning.  i open the dryer and it is still, even though it's turned off, blowing hot air and making a weird noise.  it's broke.  fabulous.  one more thing broke.  a great way to end a fun-filled weekend!   

wow...that was really long.  sorry if you are still reading!  does this make up for my lack of posts over the last two weeks {dang you computer}?  i have so many posts that i want to do....but my pics are on the computer and hopefully they were able to recover everything.  keeping my fingers crossed!

  1. UGH!
    1. I am feeling horrible now about asking you to come over on your way back in town. Seriously...I win the loser friend award. Why didn't you tell me you had been up since 4:45 am and had the day from hell?!?!
    2. Come over and use my computer AND dryer anytime! :)
