Movie Mania

 So...... I have been looking forward to Godzilla for MONTHS.....I know, weird right? But I LOVE big budget disaster films!! Last Friday night Matt and I went on opening night which was crazy, crazy full of talking kids and gross popcorn eaters so the mood wasn't just right. So that diminished my enjoyment some which I shouldn't have let it......but the movie was pretty epic! I enjoyed the story line, I loved the leads and the disaster/action scenes are insane! I will say it should be called Godzilla vs Monsters because this isn't Godzilla vs Man at all and that is ok but surprising! I definitely think you should see this in the theaters this is super entertaining and would be a perfect Memorial Day watch!
 Since I first saw the trailer for Neighbors it cracked me up but I was worried that I had just seen the funny parts.......boy was I wrong. This movie completely surprised me and it literally cracked me up! The new parents trying to navigate a new house and a baby are perfect.....and everyone can see a little of themselves in the characters. The frat? Hysterical..... Zach Efron is the perfect Frat President and the parties are a riot! You really should see this movie....I loved it and surprisingly it wasn't "as" raunchy as I thought it would be.
 Matt and I saw The Other Woman for my Birthday and I was really looking forward to this movie, I love all 3 of these ladies. I am gonna be was a renter. I didn't laugh much at was cute and endearing which I enjoyed but I was overall disappointed with this movie. What I wasn't disappointed in was Kate Upton's magical boobs....I mean wow, this girl is stunning. Casting her was brilliant! But just wait until this comes out on DVD to see what I am talking about!
When I was in Oklahoma I treated my family to a Mothers Day movie night in the Warren Balcony to see The Amazing Spider Man 2, we had a great time like always. This movie is just plain entertaining..... it isn't the best action movie but we all enjoyed it. I did notice 2 things during this movie:
1. This movie is more of a cute love story with a tragic ending
2. There are a ton of villains!

So there ya have it........have you seen any of these? What did you think?

1 year ago today Oklahoma was forever changed.....again. 1 year ago today Moore faced devastation that we hoped would never happen again. 1 year ago today my heart broke. 1 year ago today was my first day of work at my new job in Ohio and I faced with the devastating news of my home town being hit with a tornado. So many of my friends lost everything and everyone is still healing today.....after being in the school during the May 3, 1999 tornado I know first hand how this will stay with you forever.  Moore is strong, Moore is rebuilding and Moore is healing. My prayers are still with everyone back home. #moorestrong

Oklahoma Holds My Heart

I am going to wrap up my Oklahoma posts today with this one plus a outfit/style post later on today!! When I was in Oklahoma I was lucky enough to meet 4 of my girlfriends for dinner one night and sometimes you don't realize how much you miss someone until you see them again. 
 This night literally made my heart so full, this was MUCH needed girl time plus a wonderful meal can't hurt! When I see Becky, to me it seems like yesterday.....we slip right back into "US" and I forget how much she "gets me" and knows my "quirks". beautiful is Crystal? The cutest preggo around....I literally had to give her 2 hugs (awkward long ones) because I was so excited to see her and Baby Z!!
 These 3 girls I may not talk to as much as I should.........We don't see enough of each other........but when I do they welcome me back in like I was never gone. We laughed our heads off, talked books, babies, husbands and there is such a bond. I love you girls.
 Sunday I was SOO lucky to get to see my Savage family on Mothers Day! We all missed Matt of course but I was so happy to see them! Here are the Savage Ladies!
 I am so excited for July when they will all come to Denver for a 4th of July vacation!!! We miss and love you all!!!
 Now....I have to share with you all my Animal Siblings in Oklahoma........ This is Callie.....she hates me and it makes me sad. hehehe
 This super model is Gracie!!! She loves posing for pictures and giving kisses.........
 And this little slice of pumpkin pie is Betsy Ross!!! I could kiss her up all day long....she has energy for days and I miss this cute little face everyday!!!
Thank You Oklahoma for a Wonderful time!!!!!!!!!! xoxoxoxox

Class of 2014

Last week when I was home the reason was to celebrate Marissa and her graduation from college! It was 2 days filled with Ceremonies, Cheers, Family, Love and Hugs. 
How cute is she?? I swear it really was just yesterday that she was graduating from High School, just yesterday that I celebrated Tri Delt bid day with her and she moved into the dorms, just yesterday I initiated her as my sister twice over in Tri Delt......where did this time go? When did my awkward baby sisters who was all legs become an incredibly accomplished grown woman?
 Everyone....Meet Ryan.........Marissa's boyfriend who is an absolute doll! He is kind, funny and treats my sister like gold....I gave him an enthusiastic 2 thumbs up! Ryan went to OU and is currently in Grad school at OU like my sister is going to be!
 Friday night was the entire University of Oklahoma commencement in the stadium and my baby sisters picture was on the jumbo-tron for being awesome! hahaha! No, for real she got picked to be in the slide show they showed during the ceremony!

 At the end of Friday night OU gave us a stunning fireworks was the perfect way to end the night! "I am Sooner born and Sooner bred and when I die I will be Sooner Dead"...... Rah, Oklahoma!
 Saturday morning was Marissa's Journalism College graduation and before the ceremonies began we took a nice walk thru campus and enjoyed a little family time.

 That morning Marissa was honored by the Dean of Gaylord College and was inducted into their national honor society for being in the top 10% in her college! It was a private ceremony with only the Top 10% and their was truly special!

 Black and White was the uniform of the day......Not only was my Mom dressed in that but my SIL Jordan showed up as my Twinkie! What can I say we love stripes!
PS- My dress is Peter Som for Kohls and I LOVE it! #petersomforkohls And my necklace is Fossil.
 This picture is perfect, this picture is my entire family minus Matt and my Granddad both whom couldn't make it.....but here we are....all smiling, all in the same place.....this picture makes my heart happy!
Congrats again to my baby sister!

Thunder Up!

 You know Thunder Nation could not be prouder of the fact that our very own KD is MVP!!! And the thing is he isn't just a great player but he is a REAL role model. You never see that anymore....... KD is someone who is blessed with talent that could make him turn out one way but instead he loves his Mom and proudly boasts how Jesus Christ is #1 is in his life. I swear that KD>......I want to give him a big bear hug! That made last Tuesdays game extra special.......I got to go to the playoff game with my family and watch KD get honored by the NBA commissioner!
 We had the best time at this game, I screamed so much my throat hurt all week!!! And we WON!!! After the game there was a huge storm so we even had fun being trapped in the arena until 12:30am! ha!
 I love this picture! When I come home and get to go to a Thunder game with this Motley Crew....this truly feels like "HOME"!
 Get this....I got to run into a LONG time friend of mine Julie at the game! I have known Julie for 23+ years but we haven't seen each other in person in forever!!! It was so nice to run into her, she hasn't aged ONE day!!!!
Oh and did I mention this was just a normal Wednesday night hanging out with Jay Z at the game?? Yup! Jay Z was just ONE of the many celebrities that were at the game that night.....and he walked right by us!!! He has 99 Problems but a KD aint one!
THUNDER UP!!!!!!!!!
