In other news ...

I had a really random weekend. I sat in the car for 3.5 hours on Saturday so I could finally get outside and go "adventurin." Unfortunately, mother nature had other things in mind. Not only did the temperature drop 30 degrees from OKC to my destination but it also started raining and the wind was blowing like crazy. yay! Did I mention I didn't have a jacket? We had to stop at a random small town Walmart so I could pick up a $5 hoodie.

Being as outdoorsy and tough as I am (haha) I managed to get outdoors and climb through a cave. It was pretty fun and it was nice to not feel any wind. Then after all was said and done we had a picnic... in 40 degree windy weather. Talk about the time of my life.

Hope you all had amazing weekends :)

I love animals ...

"I love animals, I love animals, I love animals"

Yes I kept repeating that over and over in my head this morning to try and keep from fuming. So what happened?

Well, last night my cat and I were all cuddled up in bed snoozing. Cute right? Well about 7 a.m. I hear, hack, hack hack hack. As soon as I hear it and realize what it was I lifted my head up off of the pillow. I realized then that my cat was about to throw up inches from my face. Unfortunately I wasn't quick enough and my sweet precious cat puke on my pillow and on my sheets. Gross!!

So, at 7 a.m. this morning I got up and changed my sheets and pillow. That's right, I love animals.

Sorry for being missing last week. Things with work were crazy and I was super busy. I had a huge (15 pages) essay due on Monday then I had to turn around and write 3 papers for Thursday and today. So needless to say, I have been a busy busy girl. I hope ya'll haven't missed me too much. :)

So, I went to see Alice in Wonderland this week and absolutely loved it! I can't believe it got some of the reviews it did. I think that it has to do with people's love/hate relationship with Tim Burton. I thought it was an excellent Tim Burton film, granted there were things I'd change but all-in-all amazing!

I also saw a trailer for another movie I want to see... Despicable Me. I have seen two trailers now and this one just cracks me up.

I also decided I am totally the guy cracking up about the cow can. I'm so easily entertained haha!

How were your weekends?
