Okie Pride

So this is my very favorite outfit right now!! Isn't it funny how the simplest pieces work their way in to the front of your closet? Anyway, I thought I needed to show a little Oklahoma pride. I talk a lot about how much I miss the mountains {I miss them terribly!!!}, but Oklahoma has some beauty of it's own to offer. Our engagement pictures are proof of that. So in keeping with the theme {which is, Oklahoma}, I just had to include some of the awesome greenery and colors that come along with an Oklahoma spring. These little wild flowers are just too much for my happy heart!

Also, I have to introduce you to a very special lady in my life....my car. Her name is Trixie and we have had many adventures together....both good and not-so-good! Even she is sporting some OK gear. This is really not her choice, though. The second my car's tires tip-toed their way into Oklahoma, husband thought it was necessary to replace my front license plate with an Oklahoma State one. This is no reflection on me or Trixie because both of our hearts bleed the crimson red that is the University of Utah {school pride...woot, woot!}. However, Trixie's driver {me} is too lazy to change the plate. So until the day comes that OSU and U of U have to play each other, we can have two teams. But believe me, if that day ever comes, it's on like donkey-kong and orange is flying out the window!
My sweet Matt is always such a dear to take blog pictures for me. As soon as he walks through the door from work on Saturdays, I'm there waiting for him, batting my eyes with camera in hand! Sometimes I have to use pixie dust to get him to come, but most days he graciously indulges me. This time though, he deserves an extra cookie for being my built-in photographer! See how green everything is in these pictures?? That's because it rains a lot here in the spring. There is another thing that comes with the rain....bugs.....loads of them!!! Especially mosquitos. In between camera clicks, we were waving our arms and smacking our legs! I even had to smack a tick off.....ewwwwwww!!!! After that, I was itching all over and insisted on a full body check when we got home. We also had a close call with poison ivy. Luckily, I have a keen eye and sixth sense that helps me prevent disasters like that from happening! I really should be part of The Avengers.

I AM SO GLAD TO BE BACK FROM VACATION TO CATCH UP ON YOUR LIFE.

Sorry about the all caps. I couldn't help it.

In other news, I need that shirt. Not because I particularly love Oklahoma, you know, like you do, but because it has a dream catcher AND arrows on it. Where can I get one to soothe my hippie heart?!
