Unexpected Snow Day

I got an unexpected snow day today. I say unexpected, but it probably wasn’t if you watch the weather, but, I haven’t watched the news in a while. NPR has become my news source. Anywho, Harvey and I are enjoying this snow day together while Brandon is at work.

Well, it seems that we’ve failed over the last couple of months at keeping up with our blog. We’ve still be marking things off of our 101 list, just haven’t been so good at posting about them.

The most recent thing we’ve accomplished from our list was learning a new card game. This past weekend our dear friends and former housemate, Neal and Joanna, came to visit us from Nashville! They even came bearing gifts, Ivey Cakes Cupcakes!!!!

We had a great weekend full of food, movies, games, and laughs! We took them to the Stafford Air and Space Museum in Weatherford. For all you Okies, if you’re into being a local tourist, add this place to your list! It’s incredible how many artifacts they have from Gen. Stafford’s trips to space!

While they were here Joanna taught us a new card game, “Nerts.” It’s a speed game and very addictive.

I’d type out how to play but that would make this post even longer than it already is. But if you’re interested in learning how to play this game, check out the rules on this website.

Overall it was an GREAT weekend! We were so happy to have them make the incredibly long drive to come and see us. We LOVED having them stay with us and can’t wait until May to see them again!

Well, this post is long enough for now. I’m going to go make some hot chocolate and join my puppy in staring out the window!
