Just Bopping In.. say yes, we are still alive.

A lot of our life seems to be taking place in a vehicle at the moment. Football is dominating our life..GO WOLVES!! ..I knew this year would be like this, with one in high school, one in Jr High. And I LOVE watching them play, but man oh man..these 2, sometimes 3, games a week are wearing me out. Not so much the games, but the planning ahead, needing to get off early some days, needing to do laundry/clean/shop for the next day stuff that comes with the football game evenings.

This weekend found me out of town both days. I feel like I need a day off to recover from my days off.  Saturday we took a road trip to get some groceries and some new clothes.  Jacob had out grown all of his jeans. (sigh)   And the cupboards were BARE! We saw 2 out of 3 of our nieces and nephew that live up there, and Jacob ate buffalo for lunch.

And Sunday found me up and out the door to head to Wichita to see the Broadway musical on tour, The Lion King.  While I had always wanted to see something like this, its something I would have NEVER gotten my men to go to, nor would have I spent the money to go by myself, so I was happy when my friend, Melanie, brought it up. It was everything I hoped it would be, and much much more. It was AMAZING.

I really enjoyed girl talk with some great girls, some good food, lots of laughs, and a little bit of shopping. I was able to snag up two owls that  begged to go home with me!  I've always loved owls. They remind me of my grandma, who collected them, and its a lot of fun right now to be an owl lover..they are really popular and EVERYWHERE! The brown guy I got on sale, (whoohoo!) and the other one I found tucked on a shelf at this awesome antique mall we went to.

This week will find us a football games, and this weekend will kick off our fall show season. Let the fun begin!

Have a wonderful week.

Okay, I have to admit that when I saw you post something about bringing home owls on facebook, i thought you literally meant live owls! funny is that? I guess I just thought with all the bunnies, maybe you were taking up a new hobby!! Or maybe my days are like yours and just too full and I am a complete space cadet sometimes! Just had to share!
