Happy Winter!

So I think it's safe to say that winter has officially begun here in Oklahoma.  Well, I think it began a while ago but man is it "wintery" here!  It's been snowy and cold, and frankly I'm ready for spring.  I've never really been a big fan of the cold, so this weather is definitely making me wish we lived somewhere tropical!  You know, I can't really complain too much because it was 60 degrees 2 weeks ago. Oh a long long two weeks it has been.  Come back warmth!  Where did you run off to?!

Here's Ruby's take on the cold....

Do you think she's thinking "who would get out of bed when it's this cold out?" ... because I think that's exactly what she's thinking

Flashback to 2 weeks ago.  Oh, why couldn't you stay a little longer weather?!

Snow day!

Winter finally settled in here in Oklahoma!  We had a snow day from school on Friday and have been "snowed in" all weekend.  It's been pretty cozy here in the house, but honestly I'm going a little stir crazy!  The main roads are pretty clear but neighborhoods and side roads are still pretty treacherous. We are pretty ill-equipped to deal with large amounts of snow here in Oklahoma (even though we seem to get a big snow storm or two every year).  Usually the snow melts within a day or two and the roads are pretty accessible, however it's been so cold this weekend that we still have a thick layer of snow-covered ice on our neighborhood roads. 

Stay safe all you Okla-homies!

Here are some pics from our snow-filled weekend.

Why do I always do this?

Why do I always forget to post....

I think part of it has to do with the fact that I really don't like uploading my pictures from my camera onto my computer.  It just always seems to take so long!

Also, once I get out of the habit of posting, I forget to!

Oh well- hello again!  How are you?  We are just great here in the Vestring house. 

Here is what we have been up to lately.

We celebrated Mimi's birthday:

We celebrated some pretty cute moms-to-be:

We went to Texas for OU/Texas Weekend:
We celebrated Great Grandma's Birthday:

Halloween 2013- Can you guess what we were?

We saw my little brother in "Carousel" at OU (look at that hair and beard!)

Also, we've really gotten the hang of this wedding thing...

Happy Monday!

This summer

I was going to do a few posts to catch you up on the summer events but I've just decided that it might take too long.  I thought I would just do a "little" recap in pictures. 

Here goes....

I graduated from Grad school!

We enjoyed great times at the lake.  Ruby loves the lake.

We went to Destin with my family this summer.

Mumford Stopover

We had a great weekend at the Mumford and Sons stopover in Guthrie.  It was a blast but was way too hot!  Jeff camped at the concert campgrounds on Friday and Saturday night with some friends, but this wife did not.  I opted to drive home both nights and stay in the comfort of my own bed and air conditioning.  Let me tell you, it was a good decision!  Something has to be done about this heat!  Seriously, is it Fall yet?  I couldn't be more ready!

Here are a few pictures from my phone from last weekend.  I wish we could do it all again this weekend! Why can't every weekend be a Mumford concert?

I've never seen so many dusty cars!

These pictures don't do the heat justice...

 Man, what a great weekend!  Happy Tuesday!

Wow, it's been awhile!

So I took a little break from updating this bloggy blog.  There really was no reason.  Once summer arrived I just kind of stopped and I realize now that I have a lot of catching up to do!  School has started back up and I will hopefully post some pictures of my little 4th grade room soon! 

We had a great summer!  I can't believe that it is over (well for this teacher it is).

Here are some random ipics from this past summer.

I call this pic "taken by 5 year old" because, well you can probably guess why...

I hope you have a great weekend!  We are going to the Mumford stopover in Guthrie!  We are super excited.

Wake up and smell the roses

Welcome Spring- glad you could make it!

I wish there was a way to smell images through your computer because then you could all smell what I smelled today in my front yard.  Our roses are in bloom and they may be prettier than they've ever been.  And they smell gorgeous too!

I hope you take time to smell the roses this week.  Happy Tuesday!

Soccer Game

This weekend I attended a shower for a friend getting married soon.  We have had so many showers recently and it's been so great to have friends in town that I never get to see!

On Saturday we also headed to Tulsa to watch our nephew Caleb play soccer.  It was adorable and Caleb scored his first goal while we were there!  Way to go Caleb.  He's so cute. 

(he's the one with the shorter hair)

Caleb kept looking over and giving us a thumbs up.  How cute is he?


And this little one makes me laugh....

And Jeff and his little mini-mes...
