name change

In the spirit of our upcoming National Sooner Holdiay (i.e. OU/tx), I have decided to temporarily change the kitties names to something a little more appropriate for this grand occasion. I now introduce to you:

Formerly Charlie, now:

Formerly Sam, now:
Bob Stoops

let the countdown begin...

ONLY 9 MORE DAYS UNTIL OU/tx!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! yay yay yay yay yay yay yay! This is the official countdown for the greatest time of the year besides Christmas (for me personally) oh, and my birthday! It is a time for Sooners to unite and bask in our own glory and greatness! I am a rather vain fan. No shame. none. I have confidence in our team, but my nerves have kicked in and I will continue counting down the long days until our moment of pure Sooner excellence with our evil match!!

i'm done.

9 days.

killer bee

I have quite the healthy appetite as is widely known. Sticking to my schedule of a late-night snack, I indulged myself with a nice bowl of Capt'n Crunch. I was very excited preparing my bowl, cereal, little bit of milk when I hear this buzzing. I swat whatever was buzzing about my head so that I can peacefully enjoy my snack when I notice that it was a rather loud buzz to be a fly. I remember thinking to myself that maybe TX had really big buzzing flies that I'd forgotten about since my move to OK...that was my rationalization. Until! That "fly" tried to attack me!!!! I was under attack by a HUMONGOUS BEE!!! ahhhhhhhhhhh! What in the world! So I run to our room and get JR, who really didn't feel like saving the day and did not believe me to be honest. I ran in and said, "a bee! a bee! come kill the bee!" He realllly thought I was crazy!

We go in there and the bee is by the sink probably mapping out his next quest to attack me! JR saved the day and killed him, and I could once again enjoy my cereal, but ughh I was very disgruntled to find a killer bee in my kitchen.

The kitties go outside everyday and we sometimes leave the door open to let in some fresh air, and it seems as though the bee thought he'd found himself a home. WRONG. No more open door. I no longer need fresh air.

so fresh, so clean

I'm usually not one to over-react, much less react to this type of thing but I did find this article to be rather interesting in regards to air fresheners. I know we've all used, do use, will use some at some point...let me know your thoughts and reactions to said article:,8599,1664954,00.html?cnn=yes

and it was a strange night...

Last Friday, JR and I went to dinner with a couple he knows from work. We're enjoying our salad and pasta, and the meeting of new people and this guy walks up to our table...

Kind of looking in my direction and clutching his wallet, we thought maybe he was going to ask for some money or something. He says, "I'm sorry, I'm sorry, I know this is weird and random but I'm a make-up artist and my blonde model backed out on me last minute for a photoshoot Sunday and I really need you!". Looks at me, hands me a receipt with his name and phone number on it, and tells JR, "Don't worry I'm gay! I saw her across the restaurant and I knew she'd be perfect!" Uhhhhhhh okay. Talk about making a dinner awkward! wow! I thought the whole time he was looking in my direction it was because maybe he'd left something at the table from his dinner or something!!??

Long story short, his name is Ramon Blanco and is a make-up artist working on his new business ads, and needed a blonde model. Me and my 5'3 self did a photoshoot for him on Sunday, and it was actually really fun. My makeup was cuh-razy! Nothing you'd wear on a normal day, if ever! JR came, and Scott came later on in the day! It was so neat to have them there with me! There were two other models, so there were atleast 10 people there during the shoot! We will get the professional pics later, but atleast here you can see some of what I got to do! I had to wear a rather hideous wedding gown, but I guess the focus was on the makeup :/

new wedding website

We now have a new wedding website to announce! We changed it because we needed one with a more simple "domain" name as it can be difficult to load for some (i.e. my mom) haha! So, we now have our very own page and you can check it out at:

Hope you like it!

13, 346

That number you see above is my number on the waiting list for OU FOOTBALL SEASON TICKETS! I'm not kidding. The wait time on this list is at 6 years right now, so basically by the time I'm 30 I should be in the clear for some highly treasured OU season tickets. I am that hardcore. I am that in love with OU football. I am that in love with OU, period.

I will wait my 6 years. Patiently, for I know what is to come. Glorified views of the success-driven athletes of 6 years from now. I can see it now. I can suddenly see into the future. My future season tickets have provided me the inspiration.

Now, you give anyone some money and they are suddenly your friend. As is the story at the OU Sooner Club. If you donate some $$$ to them, they hold donor seats, of which you can get onto a "shorter" waiting list and obtain your magical seats at an earlier date than the promised 6 yrs on the public list.

JR is not allowing me to donate any more $$$ to the University of Oklahoma, as he points out...that my dad and mom have already donated more than enough to the school :) we'll leave that at that...

I told him I may secretly open an OU bank account where I can make my donations out of if I can't stand to wait 6 long and arduous years for my beloved SOONER FOOTBALL!

some of our engagement pics!!!!!


i love norman

Okay, so we had the most amazing weekend in Norman! well, actually Moore too! We knew it was going to be a fun weekend, but it truly was F-U-N! The kind of fun you have where you continue talking about it for days :)

We got up there late Friday night and we hung around Norman for a bit and headed to Blake and Jenn's around 12 or so. Blake was home early Saturday morning, and we were out the door by 9am! Headed to Sooner land! We got some breakfast at McD's and made our way to Campus Corner! The whole town was nuts, a sea of crimson everywhere you looked! It was beautiful :) I must say...Blake got us a table at Louie's (which is a small miracle, on game day) while Jenn, JR and I were doing some Sooner shopping. When I get to Norman I feel like I have to buy every item that has an OU on it. I can't help myself. I did fail though, because I couldn't get Jenn to buy an OU shirt. I'm still holding out hope. I will never give up!!

Okay, so now to Sooner FOOTBALL!! What a game!! I was sporting my Malcolm Kelly jersey and we got JR an awesome OU "dad" shirt! He looked so HANDSOME!! I was the luckiest girl in that whole town!! We basically had the best seat in the house and we watched the entire game there. The crowd was so intense and we could hear the stadium from where we were! Ohhhhhhh so fun! After "several" drinks, it was time to make our way back to the Taliaferro house for some naps!! The boys fell asleep watching more football while Jenn and I had our rooms!

After nap time, was dinner time and MAN! Blake made some of the best hamburgers, and so we had an Oklahoma cook out! We decided to stay in that night and just all hang out and watch football together. Their house is so perfect and decorated so nice! It was a joy to spend time with them in their brand new home! Blake and Jenn, thanks again for having us...we had the most unbelievable time with you guys!! It's fair time now!! Big Tex is waiting :)
