Another fun concert night at Choctaw for Alan’s birthday weekend! Charlie Daniels Band was great! It’s hard to believe he’s 83!! He put on a fun show and engaged with the audience. Travis Tritt was also on fire!! We had such a great time!!
Alan wore the buffalo plaid shirt that he said made him look like he was wearing a table cloth. We were supposed to be taking Christmas Card photos in it, but we never got around to taking them. I didn’t want to be all matchy matchy at the concert, so I wore my khaki knotted back sweater.
I think the Horned Frog wanted us to do his little sign, but I laughed and threw him the horns. My bestie threw him the Bear Claw and we left the Baylor TCU game at half time and missed all the overtimes. The Bears are still undefeated and I’m happy I got to go to the game! It was my first time at the TCU stadium, too! What a fun day!!
I’ve decided a great Halloween Costume is NOT complete without a tutu!! It seems as though most of the people I work with believe the same thing! Every year our Storybook Parade is better than the last year!!
When I was in college, my favorite Joe King Carrasco song was Party, Party Weekend. I’m not really sure what happened to him, but I thought about the song because Saturday we had two parties to go to. One of them was a one year old birthday party. It was one of the best one year old parties I’ve been to because they had live entertainment that was geared to the kids and the adults. The family that had the party saw this singer at Pluckers in Round Rock one night and had such a great time with him there, they booked him for their baby’s first party. I had so much fun listening to him sing the songs that made fun of some of the lesser colleges. I wish I would have taped some of them to play for some of my loser Sooner friends. I think he plays there on Thursday nights. I think we’ll have to make a special trip out there to see him again.
This guy was so much fun!
I’ve always loved going to parties with piñatas. I think when I turn 50, I’m going to have a piñata at my birthday party. I was surprised because the kids left lots of candy on the ground. You never would have seen that in my day!
Grilling up the dogs and burgers!
This cake was ALL over that beautiful little girl.
The second party was a graduation party. I didn’t take any pictures at the party, so I can’t share any of them, but this was a great party too. I kept asking the hosts if they wanted us to bring anything but they kept saying no. I told them that I was personally going to make something for the party and they laughed and said that they were glad they told me no. Later tonight I’m going to try the recipe that I was planning on making. If it is good, I’ll be making another post on here today to share. At the party they had a margarita recipe that was really good. All I know is that there was orange juice in the recipe, but I was told it was a secret recipe. I’m going to have to make it my mission to find out that recipe!
Today was field day at my work. I think this is the kids’ favorite day because they get to do all kinds of fun activities. This year our coach decided it would be a good year to have all the upper grade kids have water balloons. I went out to watch the kids as they have fun with the activities, when I saw a group of fifth graders walking up to me suspiciously. As they got closer, I noticed that they had something in their hands, so I took off running. I am really slow or they are really fast, but as they were gaining on me, they started throwing the water balloons at me. One bounced off my back and another hit the ground around me. I felt pretty confident that was it, so I started slowing down and that’s when it happened. WHAM!!! One hit me right in the back of the head. It must have hit JUST right because my whole back and my front managed to get soaked. We all got a huge laugh out of it! I love the kids at my school! They have such a good sense of humor!!
