Friday Free-for-All

Hi Friends! First of all THANK you for the Anniversary wishes, mucho appreciated!!! And no, we didn't celebrate yet because I had JH last night so tonight we are going to The Melting Pot! It is somewhat of a tradition for us and of course it's yummy!
Have you guys seen the preview for Puss in Boots? I will say I do not like animated movies but this looks beyond cute!!!! I think because I have a cat and my parents have 2! Silly, I know but I love how they incorporated real cat traits into the movie!!!  Here is the trailer.....

Saturday we are going to watch the OU game at my parents while eating Chili and celebrating over cake for Matt's 31st Birthday (which is Sunday)! Then on Sunday I am going to cook a special dinner for him which I look forward to! I know, this is a great week for Matt huh? LOL! But I will say it over and over I love this week.....I like his birthday better than mine!

Sooo I want to do something Halloween-ish this has anyone seen the Paranormal movie? How scary is it? I am a someone let me know!

What do you all have going on this weekend?

4 years ago today......

4 years ago today Matty and I got hitched!! It was a beautiful sunny warm October Day and the saying is true....I don't remember much of that day, it is all a blur now!!
Here is "The Kiss", one of my favorite pictures from our wedding! Right after this when we walked down the isle my cathedral veil got caught on one of the "kissing balls" at the end of each pew! We all just laughed it off!
* We got engaged after 10 months and then we had a year long engagement! Here is one of my favorite engagement pictures of us, awe.....we look like babies!
* The first 1 1/2 years were spent with me on turf or the court and Matt in the stands, luckily he got free Season tickets to both!! When I "retired" from professional dance I surprised Matt with a long weekend in St. Louis to go to a Cardinals Game!
* Matt is a great golfer and in the past few years he has started riding dirt bikes! Matt is very athletic, he was a pitcher in college all 4 years!
* Matt and I have gotten to do some fun things in the past 4 years but mostly we love the nights where just the two of us are hanging out at home watching a movie! That is something I love about him, he is a home body!
* Matt is caring, kind, silly and driven! All things that make Matt special! Our future is bright!
I started this blog 4 years ago after our "Wedding Website" expired so I thought I would give blogging a whirl....hence our name Newly Wed Savages! I never thought this blog would have such a place in my life, but I am so glad.....I love sharing my life with all of you!
Happy 4 years Matty, love you so much! And like we always say.....looking forward to so many many more! xoxox

What I am Loving Wednesday! UPDATED

 Happy Halloween Hump Day! (yes, that was a mouth full) I am sitting here at my desk in our home office watching the wind pick up as a cold front moves in! FINALLY I say, I hope this cooler weather will actually help me to start feeling like it is fall! I am loving some great fall things this week.....

* This picture describes me perfectly, if I could freeze time I would want this ALL year!
 * Betsy Ross, my parents Mini Australian Shepard! She loves me.... I like to play kissy-face with her! bahaha! They named her Betsy Ross because they got her over the 4th of July but I like to call her Diana Ross because Betsy is such a Diva...... my little Supreme! (one day I might tell you all the things I call my animals....if your lucky) I will give her a big hug and kiss from you all next time I see her!
 * SOUP!!!!!!!!!!
I LOVE making homemade soup, it is just something I find I am good at and now I am too spoiled and can't even think about opening a can of soup! Here are some recipes I pinned lately that are on my "To Make" list!
Garlic and Cauliflower Soup
Click HERE for recipe!
 Smokey Sweet Potato Soup! Yummy
Click HERE for this recipe!
 BLT Soup! Sounds dreamy.....
Click HERE for recipe, And friends let me know if you get around to making any of these before I do!
 * American Horror Story & The Walking Dead
I know I have talked about both of these before but I LOVE them! The Walking Dead is so stressful......such a great show with Zombies!!
And this is the creepiest show EVER, at the end of each episode it leaves me begging for more!
 * AMC Fright Fest
Thank you AMC for playing Scary Movies ALL day everyday until Halloween! I love a great old scary movie! BUT I pass on all the new horror movies.....too gory!
 * If the Tiara Fits!
So I bought the shirt below at a craft show a week or two ago and I love it. I think it has the right about of Holiday without being cheesy! This woman makes these amazing vintage shirts that I can't get enough of!
 She makes every type and gotta check out her HERE

* Lastly THANKS to my friend Traci I am LOVING this highlight video from Sunday nights NBA Charity Game! SO neat to see it like this.....I was THERE!
So friends! What are you loving today?

Food for Thought...

This week I have asked Matt if he told his co-workers about his awesome weekend and he said "not really"....I was like "why?" and his answer was "I don't like to brag" and those words got me thinking......

I have been thinking I sure hope no one thinks that is what I a doing. For me we all know I am boring 99% of the year but when we do something fun I want to share it with you all, that is the point of a And I feel like there is a HUGE different between bragging and being proud. For me I can't wait to share with everyone how proud I am that I pulled off a surprise. Truly, you all know that I say giving for me is partly selfish....I just LOVE making someone (usually Matt) so happy. I mean knowing that something I did is what has made Matt happy....I just beam with pride. So I sure hope that all my FB friends and Bloggy friends know that about me and know that I am not a boastful person.

Secondly, I do know some blogs that ARE very boastful......the purpose of some blogs is just to brag and show off and I hate that. So I hope that when I talk about something I have done for Matt or I share with you all that we got to do something exciting that I am NEVER bragging but sharing with you all something that makes me happy.

Kapeesh? Ok, I will get off my soap box!

Last night my whole family went to Mickey Mantle's to celebrate 3 things:
1. Curtis being home before deployment
2. Curtis's Birthday
3. Matt's Birthday
And of course before we left the house I was picture-nazi............Hey, someone has to be the picture person! And I got my outfit from Lucca at Penn.
The ladies of the house......... I am so short when I am wearing flats and my sister is in heels!
Marissa and sweet Betsy Ross getting in some snuggles! AND no on rocks skinny jeans as good as Marissa does!
Sadly, this will be the last sibling picture until late next summer......You can't think that way too much or it will be too easy to be down in the dumps. Curtis is being deployed from Thanksgiving Day-end of next June.  He is a Marine, an officer if you didn't know or are new to my blog and he is stationed at Pendleton.
Awe, Betsy snuggles are the best! I just want to squeeze her she is so gosh darn cute!
The whole gang at Mickeys! I was so glad that Matt was able to get off work to come with us! And yes, he sure does look snazzy in his suit doesn't he?
Curtis and Jordan at the table with the huge dessert plate sent over by the Mickeys Managers! And don't they look cute? I will say this is the FIRST time ever that we have spent time with a girlfriend of his. I do not remember him EVER bringing a girl to family you can see how special she must be to him.
I told Matt to blow out the candles and this is what he gave me.....he was being stupid..............typical man.
This picture is full of happy faces and full stomachs...........such a nice way to start the week! BIG Thanks to my Dad to treating everyone to such a great night out!
Matty and I........I Love him and I love his Birthday week!
Well blogger are all up to speed on my life! This is truly my favorite week of the whole year! AND>......finally Oklahoma is getting some cool weather at the end of the week which is the icing on the cake for me!

Kevin Durant Charity Game......

So on Sunday we switched gears and back tracked to Matt's Birthday! The WS was his Christmas and this NBA Charity game was part of his Birthday! Before we went to the game we met up with my family for dinner........
The guys were warming up when we got to the game, our seats were much better than I thought which was a nice surprise! We were just 12 rows up on the side!
Matt and I at the game........this is our old arena where the Yard Dawgz use to play and our hockey team plays. Right now no NBA player can be inside any of the NBA arena's due to the lock out so this was the perfect spot for the guys to get together!
Here is our beloved Kevin Durant who organized this whole game, he really is a great guy and OKC loves him! Sadly, Blake Griffin aka Mr. Slam Dunk had a "hurt" foot and had to back out of the game.....which I can understand BUT what I don't understand is why he couldn't even show up and sit on the bench. I mean this was HIS event.....the shirts all say Griffin vs Durant?! So I personally think that even thought he cut his foot in ocean (true story) he should of came to support the guys. So rude. Ok, I am off my soap box.
I will say that this game made me like Lebron a smidgen more than I did before the game. I mean he showed up, played for charity and he looked like he was having a great time! I will say he was not the leading scorer by a long shot......Beasly from the Timberwolves was followed by Durant and Carmelo Anthony.
It was SOOO nice to see Chris Paul, Okc still loves him since the Hornets were the Okc Hornets for 2 years he is still in the family you could say! I had to cheer extra loud for him and his mad dribbling skills!
Game time..........Blue vs White
Carmelo Anthony and Durant ready for the jump ball............ This game also made me like Carmelo a lot....I don't think he stood out during the season but here he was on fire and he just seems nice.
Lebron James #6............Chris Paul, Anthony, Durant..........
One of my FAVS..........James Harden, looks like someone has been working out this summer! HA!
Kevin at the Free Throw line...........
And this was the final score! This was just such a fun laid back game! Loved every minute and it makes me miss the Thunder even more! Come on and "Let the Boys Play"!!!!!!!!!!!
Matt had a great time which I am glad about, such a fun way to kick off the start of his Birthday week!
