Happy Camper

Last week was pretty busy even though Beth was gone for a good portion of it. She left for “camp” last Tuesday and was gone until Friday when I picked her up. Okay, she wasn’t actually at camp, but she was at Dry Gulch USA, which is a camp where Jenks takes its 6th graders every year to do some teaching outside of the classroom. I’m sure Beth will write more about it soon, but overall I think she had fun.

My parents were in town last week so while Beth was gone, I got to spend some time with them. They have been planning on buying a house in Tulsa for a while since my brother and sister go to college here so I got a chance to go look at a bunch of properties with them. After looking at many many houses, they found one that they really liked and decided to buy. It’s a great house that was built in the 1920s with a lot of character. In the middle of looking at houses, my Dad and I got a chance to play golf out at Forest Ridge golf course near our house. We had a good time together and I look forward to hopefully doing it again sometime soon.

Last Saturday Beth and I spent a majority of the day working in our flower beds. We pulled everything out and have decided to start from scratch. Because it took us so long to pull everything out, we decided to do all of our planting this upcoming weekend. I never was too impressed with the landscaping at our house so I’m looking forward to making it look how we want it to.

On Sunday, we had lunch with a college friend of mine who was in town from Dallas. We went to a new place in Tulsa called Smashburger. There’s actually two of them in town now, one on 71st and Garnett(the one we went to) and one on 71st and Highway 75. I love a good burger and this place has really good burgers. Beth got a chicken sandwich that she said was good too. It's one of those places where you order at the counter and they bring you your food. If you’re in Tulsa, definitely check it out.

After lunch we stopped by Mathis Brothers just to browse the furniture since we are looking for office furniture. In fact, I don’t even like Mathis Brothers but their selections and prices are too good to pass up. If I had another option, I would take it! As we were walking through the store, we both spotted these great leather chairs. After sitting in them and looking at the price(and a little back and forth conversation between the two of us), we decided to make the purchase. We set up the chairs last night and also added a few small speakers and tv to the office. We are planning on getting a combination bookshelf/media center but are going to hold off on that for a little while.

This is a picture of one of our new chairs:

After lunch, buying furniture, and relaxing a little bit, we decided to take a 7 mile run on Sunday night. It felt really good to run a little longer and the Oklahoma weather has been great lately. We are gearing up for a few different runs in the next month. We are running in the Woolaroc Run(8K) on October 17th and the Tulsa Run(15K) on October 31st. We ran in the Tulsa run last year and it was a great race. We are both looking forward to doing it again this year. I’ve heard the Woolaroc Run is a lot of fun too, but have never gotten a chance to run in it.

Anyway, that's a little run down of the past week. We've been slacking on the blog a little lately, but hopefully we can get into a better routine.
