I got my oil changed a few days ago, as well as, a free car wash. As I pulled up to the guy to wash my car, I rolled my window down to ask if I needed to turn my car off. At the same EXACT time he turned the water hose on and hit me right in the face. I could keep my car on. thanks.

....Just another day in the life of Amanda.

OKC Geological Society Party and some other things.

Last week Brian and I attended the Oklahoma City Geological Society Christmas Party. We were greeted at the door with our choice of $50 dollar gift certificates. Brian got best buy and I, of course, got Bath and Body works. I knew that it was going to be a great night. We also won an Ipad and a kindle...not to mention all the great food, desserts, and music that was provided as well. We have decided that we will be attending all the OKC Geological Society Parties. :) Well worth the $40 bucks we shelled out to attend the party.

In other news, my friend Tia introduced me to eBay. I know it has been around for years, but for some reason it always stresses me out. It was not until I saw all the great deals she was getting, that I realized I needed to try it out. I love it. I have bought 4 things in two days. All great deals, I might add. I found a ski coat and some other Patagonia tops that will be great for running/lounging. I plan on putting my ski coat up for to sell. No more purchases for me for a while! :)

Another reason why my job is probably cooler than yours...Today at work we filmed a commercial for Kevin Durant, OKC Thunder basketball Player, Nike shoe line. It was a lot of fun. We (CHK energy) have entered our video into the contest. Fingers crossed we will win. I will keep you updated.

Christmas list

I love Christmas.

I love lists.

I love Christmas lists.

So here it is again this year... my grown up Christmas List:

1. Batter scoop
2. Candy thermometer
3. Being in Morehead

How boring am I? My list went from 25 things last year to 3 this year. Boy how times have changed. :) I am looking forwarded to heading back east for the holiday. I am beginning to get a little homesick. Missing all the plays, hometown holiday, solo signing parts, new bakery on main, Huddy meeting Santa for the first time, Hudson growing, laughing, developing a personality ( I mean he is practically a toddler.)

Brian and I have a crazy 2011 planned. I am so excited for all of our trips.

Tonight I made homemade marshmallows. They are amazing. They go along perfect with some great hot chocolate. ahhhh! I wish they did not have to set for 6 hours before eating!

A Scott Thanksgiving 2010

Someone left their sunglasses. Granddad insisted on wearing them back to KY.
7 or so years ago, Greg and I arm wrestled. It was a tie. 2010 he beat me, but I put up a good fight. Rematch Next YEAR! (maybe i should grunt more next year, I think that is how he won this match)

Lord help Brian.
It was like old times! We are back together...just missing Kyle and Stephen.
We were allowed to turn on the fire. Thanks Granddad.
Charlie sure has missed Lehne. She needs to come visit more.
Just a little chilly.
Thanksgiving 2010
Watchin' football
Wonder what they are talking about?
Ann ironed for 5 hours...that should teach Brian a lesson--don't compare me to your mom.
Wow, I look great! Turkey Trot. Meow! (for you Ben)
The Emery's came up from Dallas.
Learning how to play cornhole.

How many people can we get on the couch?

It was so nice to have everyone come out for thanksgiving. It was crowded, but reminded me a lot like home. I love when my house is filled with people--love, laughter, and natural gas. ha!

On a serious note, Brian and I are so fortunate to both come from great families who have taught us so much. We can't say enough how much we enjoyed having everyone together. It was such a special time for all. We were so glad that Granddad made the long trip out to good ole Oklahoma. Hey! He did get a new pair of stylish sunglasses out of it.

We hope to have many more of these memories...hopefully with little ones running around. hint. hint. (BRIAN)
