I woke up that Friday morning (oct 27th) at dad's house in edmond. It was rather chilly (since it was 75 the day before). Mom and I ran errands all day. I got to eat lunch with my friend Genesis at Jason's Deli and it brought back good ol' memories with that darned good strawberry shortcake!!! I got to hang with Lo and Gabs too. Later I went to pick up cam from the airport!!! We headed on over to Chelino's in bricktown and I had a huge bday crowd with me!!! Matt, Laura, Andy, Chris, Emily, Blake, Mom, David, Lauren, and Brad (and of course me and Cam)!!! I had a grand old time and we had some yummy mexican food!!!!! We are dumb and didnt take any more pics. Those earrings I am wearing i got as a gift from Maggie! Yeah for bdays Boo for being old.
My little baby sister got married on sunday. It was in my grandma's backyard (on 5 acres). It was gorgeous and sunny and beautiful. There was hardly any wind, and the leaves were changing and falling and it was perfect. We couldn't have asked for anything better. She was a beautiful blushing bride. She made her dress from part of my mom's dress when she married my dad. She added a little pink satin ribbon to it and was barefoot :). Chris wore a brown siut with a pinkisk tie and was also barefoot. The colors were pink and brown and the flowers were daisies. There were 4 round tables at the reception which had vintage tablecloths on them and old vases/bottles with dasies and greenery from the yard. The cousins (well really Polly and some Lo) made the gorgeous kahlua cake with chocolate cream cheese icing, decorated with fresh dasies. Sus's friend from Lawerence (also a hair stylist) did her hair and make up. Mom and David did the reception food. Chris made the playlists and had his computer with some powereful speakers out in the back. Sus and dad danced to brown eyed girl by van morrison. It was just perfect. Christiane caught the bouquet and Stephen caught the garter!!!!! The drove off into the sunset in sus's car straight to the Arcadian Inn (a b&b in edmond). The later told me they ordered deep fork grill b/c they were starving. Polly made them a miniature kahlua cake with a bride and groom on top!!! Sus and I talked Monday and she and chris made it to NYC and they were about to take the subway to their b&b in harlem!!!! Yeah for marriage. 5 cousins down....2 to go!!!!!

First off.... my big toe on my right foot... the toenail is falling off. it's only the left side, so for right now it's pretty secure. I thought I had a little to worry about, until today. I looked down, and dang it if my middle toe on my left foot... the toenail was just hanging off like it was chilling. what else was I to do but trim the whole sucker off. Part of it is still there, like a cm or something dumb like that. But I have never had a nail fall off, b/c apparently I took care of my nails... until i moved to CO???? But I look like a homeless person (like Audra when she used to wear socks with holes to work like me and genesis... sus did you do that too?). All my dang nails are falling off. So... being the smart nursey i am... I started taking prenatal vitamins. No growth yet, and it's been like 2 weeks. Geesh vitamin company. Did you know there was this shiney part under you toenail that is kinda hard? well there is. Wanna see? You cant really tell in the pic, it just looks like my polish is coming off, but I assure you, it's my nail falling off. Gross. The other pic is how snowy it was a frew days ago. That snow all melted the next day, but then when I woke up this morning it was CRAZY snowy, and of course, it has all melted too. BOO. 8 more days until sus's wedding, 6 more days til my birthday, and 5 more days til i leave for the SOONER STATE!

It's snowing here and has been all day (well since about 1200). I am pumped, and it looks so pretty. I just hope the roads don't freeze over. I couldn't find a pic of how pretty it is on the internet and was too lazy to take one. After I went to grocery shop at Target (and after I got a carmal apple cider from satrbucks) I sat on the couch and knitted all day. Sorry to say dad that I got bored making the scarf and switched to cameron's hat, but I am done now, and will switch back to the scarf!!!! It was wonderful being inside watching all the snow today, but it makes me scared to see what work will be like tomorrow (being on the trauma unit and all). PS... Julie Malecek will be here in 2 days! And it's 10 days til my birthday!

I am knitting a scarf, unlike Meredith on Grey's Anatomy, I don't need it to keep me occupied from boys. I am doing it for the sheer satisfaction of a job well done. Also, you can give them as gifts to people!!! So, I started by making a trial one, i guess for me, in case it was really bad, i would wear it. It turned out pretty well. Now, I am on scarf #2, it's for tha cambomb. He wanted brown and green stripes, and he picked out the yarn too!!!! His is over 50% completed. Next will be my dad's. Hopefully I can just give him his over Thanksgiving. There is a long list of people so far who want one, which makes me very excited that people think I can make something good enough for them to wear!!! I forgot to say that I tried knitting once last chirstmas time, and all i could do was make triangles... for those of you who knit you understand! Anyway, i decided i needed to try it again, so I started the week cam's parents came out. And low and behold, I got Lea Ann (cam's mom) hooked too! She was already on her 2nd ball of yarn before I got home from work one day! Go Lea Ann!!! So, here are some pics of the scarves. Cam's is still a work in progress and there are a lot of strings hanging down that i will put into place before i am finished (don't worry).
Also on a side note. I went to dessert at Darci's house last night and met with the other girls from seminary (rachel and heidi). They are awesome and I had a great time. yeah for girls!!!!

So, they got married September 6, 2006. How cute are they. I think they are the same person. Wearing the same shoes, socks, shorts, key chains in their pockets, almost the same shirts too :), and they both have short hair and glasses :). How cute, 2 peas in a pod. This pic was taken by the pastor that married them in Lake Tahoe in the little chapel. CUTE! Cheers to mom and david!

Let me just tell you how awesome the Coors Tour was! Cameron's family was in town (Mima, David, Lea Ann, Blake, and Alec), and we decided this was something we really needed to do.... which brought us there! Not only was it really interesting, but you got 3 free 8 oz beers, and a 4oz taster on the tour! Did you know Coors cold filters it's beer, so you are actually not supposed to leave it unrefridgerated, b/c that makes it lose it's taste. That also means there aren't any nasty preservatives in it, unlike other beers. Coors also makes Kilians and Blue Moon. Which I tried and from the brewery they taste amazing! So, when you come to visit, this is where we'll go!
Cameron, Steve, and Jackie decided it was a great idea to run a 10K. Thye got to run through (and on the field) of Mile High Staduim, the baseball field, and the ice rink!!! Cameron's time was 58m and 35 sec!!!! I was so proud of him! steve came in at 60 min, and jackie came in at 62 min! The cause was for disabled athletes. It was really fun. I stood at the finish line and cheered everyone on, which was actually really exilerating! Go runners!
