Last Weekend

Last weekend was probably the most productive weekend we have had in a really long time. Beth flew up to Tulsa on Thursday night and I picked her up at the airport around 7 p.m. On the way home, we picked up Hideaway Pizza(they just opened a new one in Broken Arrow). If you're ever in Tulsa, Hideaway is a great place to grab pizza.

We came home and I gave Beth a refresher tour of the house since she had really only spent about 45 minutes total in the house before then. After eating dinner and just relaxing for a little while, we both decided it was time to get to work. The first step was unpacking our bedroom. We got every box unpacked(although not everything put up where we would like). After unpacking, it was time for bed since I had work and Beth had two interviews on Friday.

On Friday Beth dropped me off at work and then went to her first interview with Union Public Schools. At 1 p.m. she went for her interview in Wagoner and then came and picked me up from work. We decided we would spend the afternoon looking for furniture since we've been wanting a new couch for about 2 years now and now we need a kitchen table as well since we gave ours to Beth's sister Janet.

Our search included 4 furniture stores(not much choice in Tulsa) and a stop at Sherwin Williams to pick out paint colors for the house. By the way, if anyone has any great furniture ideas in Tulsa, please let us know. We are desperately looking for a nice kitchen table and chairs. On our fourth stop, we found a couch and it is one awesome couch. When Beth and I saw it, we knew it was exactly what we were looking for. It's a brown leather couch that is 101" long and extra deep. Since I'm 6'3, an extra long couch will be perfect. After finding the couch, we went home and I found the same couch online for $85 cheaper so I called Mathis Brothers and asked them to match the price which they surprisingly did. I've heard only bad things about Mathis Brothers, but you can't beat the price or selection. The couch is getting delivered tomorrow so we'll see what happens. Besides the couch, we found a great table and chairs that we both really loved. Unfortunately, the table and chairs are discontinued and no longer available from the manufacturer. Just our luck.

On Friday night, I took Beth to Ted's Escondido. It's Oklahoma's version of "authentic" Mexican food. I would say that although I loved Ted's when I was in college, I'm not the biggest fan anymore. Maybe that's because I've been living in Texas for the past 6 years and have been exposed to real authentic Mexican food.

On Saturday we got up and immediately started working on the house. Although we did take a break to run 7 miles around Forest Ridge which was a lot of fun. I worked out in the yard for about 2 hours while Beth unpacked box after box. By the time I was done outside, Beth had nearly the entire kitchen together. Needless to say, I was very impressed!

Saturday night we drove to Fayetteville, Arkansas to have dinner with one of my best friends Jacob and his fiance Mindy. We had a really good time and it was really nice to finally meet Mindy. Beth and I will be going to Portland at the end of July for their wedding. In fact, we'll be in Portland on our one year anniversary.

On Sunday we continued unpacking, went and bought the couch that we found on Friday and then it was time for Beth to go back to Houston. The weekend was jam packed, but it flew by really quickly.

I can't wait for Memorial Day when Beth and her parents are coming to Tulsa to hangout and paint. We picked out some great paint colors and are really looking forward to getting the house exactly how we want it. So there you go, that was our weekend. Eventful to us and also a lot of fun.
