My Weekend & my 1 year blogiversary & my 250th post

********Looking for the apron giveaway??*********** 

{leave a comment at the end of this post to be entered}


I apologize now if this is just way too long!{keep going it will be worth it}



Like I said before, my hubby and I escaped took a little road trip to Oklahoma last Friday to see one of our favorite couples. It was a real treat to go without the kids {thanks to my parents}. Jarod and Laura {our friends} showed us around their new church and then we went out to dinner at a fancy Mexican restaurant....yum.


After dinner we went downtown to the Cain's ballroom in Tulsa to go see the David Crowder band. SO MUCH FUN!! Standing room only, small ballroom and no more than 500 people makes for a great concert and worship experience. It was probably one of the best concerts I've been to. Here is a short take, sorry it got cut off.

Here are the men before the concert {mine's on the right}

and another one of the band {not a great pic, I know...but it's the best I got}

On Saturday morning Jarod's worship band played at the Tulsa run so we were glad to get to see him play.


We had to leave right after the run was over so we could get back in time for Halloween.


Just in time.


We got the kids from my parent's house, took them home to get on costumes and then hit the trick or treat circuit. We ended up back at my parent's house for some dinner {thanks mom} and just hang out for a little while and let the kids count their loot.

This is Josiah after EACH piece of candy he received. Not kidding...he was giddy with each and every piece.

Josiah found his buddy Woody and a blurry horse too.
