I just got this clever screensaver from Veer. It’ll help me stay organized and looking cool at the same time!

Rocktown

August 31, 2009

This weekend Jeremy and I went indoor rock climbing with our friends Ashley and Colin.

Rocktown has made it’s home in a cluster of old concrete silos located in Downtown OKC.

We went through a quick training course and moved on to the climbing. We started out on a beginner’s course.

While one person is climbing the other is at the bottom taking up slack in the rope and responsible for taking action if the person climbing falls.

When I made it to the top I felt like such a badass.

Jeremy moved on to a more difficult course.

The harnesses were quite flattering.
We had such a good time! We’ll definitely be going back (like this week).

And the guys working at Rocktown were so nice – making it a lot less intimidating than I had expected.

Our praying mantis friend, Sweet Tooth, came back for a visit!

While Jeremy and I were lounging on the hammock at my parents house, my sister spotted our praying mantis friend!

It’s gotta be Sweet Tooth! Look at how he’s posing for the camera. Just like last time!

The weather is so nice. It would be so lovely to have a picnic in the park. I’ll have to try and recreate the shot from above.

Aside from hanging out with family we are going to go indoor rock climbing with some friends. I’m so excited! I have no upper body strength so we’ll see how it goes. Then we’re going to spend some quality time at various pubs.

What’s everyone up to this weekend?

*Special thanks to Judie for linking me to the Oklahoma Historical Society page. There are all sorts of goodies I’ll be posting from this source down the road.

Garage Sale Art

August 28, 2009

When I get asked “what would you save in the event of a fire” I always respond that I would save my garage sale art (because kitties and photos are a little obvious).

I found this collage on wood at a garage sale about 7 years ago. It was priced at $50 and I was a broke college student. But it was lust at first sight. I mean, I wanted to make out with it but I wasn’t sure if I wanted to BUY it. For $50. So my sister convinced me to ask the couple selling it (they were moving to Europe, how chic) if they would take $30.

They looked in pain when I asked. I could tell they didn’t want to part with it at all. The husband had created it with his highschool graduating class of 1970. They came back with $35 and I said “sold!”

Since then lust at first sight has transitioned into a deep and solid love.

Everytime I look at it I can find something new. It cost me $35 but now it’s priceless.
