Yates' Annual Pumpkin Carving Party!

This past weekend on Saturday night Yates through her Annual Pumpkin Carving Party! We have been getting together for the past 4 years now to carve pumpkins. We started out as a group of 5, but gradually we have dwindled down to just the 3 of us. Ames and Mels we missed you!!
WATCH OUT! Kyna is using Yates' power tool
to do some carving. Surprisingly, no blood was shed...only pumpkin juice and pieces flying in the air!
Yates, me, and Kyna...Ames and Mels we set out pumpkins for our missing friends.
I had such a great time hanging with the girls! Looking forward to it next year...let's see...hum...I wonder who will be around next year?

Camping and Hiking in OK!

me, dad, mom, and Melissa

Two weekends ago a group of my friends(about 15) headed to OK to camp at my parent's place and then we headed to the Wichita Mountains to do some hiking. The guys put up their tents on the hillside along with a few girls that wanted to take in the whole camping experience. I bet you can guess where I slept...yes, of course I slept in the house along with a few other girls. My mom took good care of us and cooked us some amazing meals over the weekend. On Saturday we headed to the mountains to do some hiking. It was truly amazing to be out in God's creation! What's the difference between a buffalo and a bison? We saw this buffalo up close...well Kevin and Erik went really close to get this great pic. The crew at the top of a mountain that we hiked up. Rach and I...isn't the view of the river AMAZING! Melissa jumping off a 15 foot cliff into the river. The water was freezing! I gave into peer pressure and jumped, too. I jumped from the baby cliff(8 feet high). Crazy, I know!! We visited the Holy City. We ate at Meers before we headed back to Duncan. The best hamburgers and peach cobbler around! It was a truly amazing weekend! We got to my parent's place around 10 on Friday night and set up tents and set around the campfire. Saturday morning my mom fixed us a big breakfast of biscuits and gravy before we headed out to hike. After Meers we had smores by the campfire. Sunday morning my mom fixed pancakes and bacon for breakfast and we had some praise and worship time outside by the campfire. We threw the frisbee around outside and played washers until lunch. For lunch my mom made company casserole, salad, and for dessert banana pudding(my favorite). We spent the afternoon watching the Cowboys game(really wasn't worth watching bc they forgot to show up). Later that afternoon we headed back to Fort Worth. I had so much fun with my friends and it was really great to spend some time with my family and they always like meeting my friends. Thanks mom and dad for hosting and taking such good care of us!!!

Fajitas Anyone?

Today after church I met Amber(college roommate and bf)and Josh(her hubby) for lunch at Papasitos. They came down on Friday and went to the OU vs. Texas game yesterday. We won't talk about the upset though! We had a great time at lunch today catching up and eating some yummy fajitas! Fajitas is one thing I remember about Amber. Her love for Mexican food and fajitas. We always would split an order in college and nothing has changed about that, we did the same today, even though now she has a husband(he wanted his own order). Guess some things will never change like our wonderful friendship!!

Brunch with Glo and Ella!

This morning, I met Glo and Ella at Mimi's Cafe for brunch. This is one of my favorite spots to do brunch. It was so great to catch up on life with you Glo and meet your precious Ella! Ella is such a good baby. She slept most of the time, but I had plenty of snuggling and loving time and I even got to feed and burp her =) Can't wait to do it again!!!The proud mommy!

Sweet, precious Ella!

Volley Up!

First of all, I'm so sorry that it has been so long since my last post! My life has been SUPER CRAZY!! School has been stressful and two weeks ago I was sick, but thankfully I'm feeling much better. So I'll give you the quick version of what's been going on in the life of ADB. This past Tuesday, I went to watch Rachel(one of my old L.I.T. girls)play some volleyball. It was so much fun! She played great and her team won 2 out of 3 games. It was fun to see a side(serious and competitive)of her that I had not seen. She is such a great player! After the game, I headed to have diner at the Williams' household. It was great to have a family dinner(they are one of my TX families). I feel truly blessed to have them in my life! Thanks for dinner and letting me hang out at your casa!! Here's a pic of me, Rach, and Emily(her older sister). Rach is center in green.
