I borrowed the book from a friend and fell in love with it. Since finishing the book I have gone back and re-read more than half of it just finding my favorite parts.
I also found out they are making a movie. Of course I was ecstatic. My love for romantic drama is hard to tame so this was perfect. Check out the official trailer. (Warning: if you have not read the book this will give away a few things.)
It's just one of those things that stuck with me and I can't seem to shake it. The movie comes out August 14th, and I am sure by then I will have read the book a couple more times.

We stopped off on our way to grab Subway sandwiches and beer. Then we hit the streets on our bikes and made our way through downtown to the Myriad Gardens.
The concert was Stephen Speaks. It was extra special because Chase and I first started listening to him when we started dating. One of our favorite songs is Passenger Seat which he kicked the concert off with.
It was a great way to relax and unwind from the crazy weekend. There are so many fun and free things to do in OKC. You just have to find them.

To celebrate we went to the Thirsty Thursday RedHawks game.
Alex bought his first beers for only a dollar!!
After the game we headed to an oldie but a goodie for his first bar experience, Cock' O the Walk.
I bought him his first shot, "Pittbull on Crack." He took it like a champ!
Happy Birthday Alex!

Big changes are happening in the Pseudo Single household. I am leaving my beloved duplex near the beautiful park to move back in with my parents.
Why you ask? Well, Chase and I will be embarking on a journey to Dallas come December and we are going to buy a house. (gotta get that $8K tax credit!) So, in order to do the financially responsible thing and save some serious cash for a down payment, I am moving out of my rental and in with my parents. (who are kind enough to not charge me any rent.)
So the lack of posts lately can be directly attributed to all the stresses of moving. Cleaning out the house, donating things, packing things up, turning off all your bills, changing your address, getting a storage unit for all your stuff and on and on and on.
And my cute little place is now a holding place for boxes heaped upon other boxes.
I am sure going to miss my life in that duplex but good things are coming. And, my friend Jenn is moving into my place so I will still be able to hang out there!

This van cruises around the area I live in and parks at local events and popular hangouts. It is actually a great tactic and definitely gets attention. Especially in my neighborhood, where its full of hippies that might need his services.

Monday was the Oklahoma City Ad Club's 35th annual golf tournament. I got to play golf with Roy (my boss) and a couple of our best clients.
It was a perfect day for golf, no wind. The course was beautiful and our golf shots were on point. We ended up taking 2nd place with a score of 61 (11 under). I also snatched the Women's Longest Drive title, I smoked em.
It's always nice to get out of the office on a Monday.

Pop's is a new Oklahoma landmark located on Historic Route 66 in Arcadia. It's futuristic design and 66 foot tall soda bottle are just a couple of the things that make it unique. It's an actual gas station and soda fountain/restaurant with over 500 different kinds of soda.
The place opened up a few years back but Mom and I had never been so we made this our Saturday lunch destination. Nothing better than a strawberry soda alongside a burger and fries.
After lunch we both grabbed a 6 pack holder and picked up several varieties of soda pop to take home. I also grabbed a 6 pack of Pop's select lager beer.
It was the perfect Saturday adventure. If you haven't made it out to Pop's yet I suggest you make the short trip. It's well worth it.

About every other day I jump on Craigslist to roam through the thousands of furniture posts in search of this hidden gem. It has yet to be discovered. (but I have found some pretty nasty ugly things along the way)
Some of you may have read my post on Liz's Chair party. Liz found all these beautiful chairs on CraigsList within the past year. I think she got them all.
Any other ideas on where to find an original chair for my living room?

Of all the plays/musicals I have seen (not a ton) this was by far the best. The whole thing was absolutely magical. It was also fun because I grew up watching the Lion King movie and I could still sing along to the songs.
I even teared up and got goosebumps when all the animals were gathered on stage in the beginning singing Circle of Life.
If this show is ever in your area I would highly recommend seeing it!

So, naturally when Liz bought a new house we had to center her celebration party around the large quantity of chairs that needed to be moved to the new place.
Liz even created a Facebook event for this spectacular occasion. Here is a blurb from the event description:
Everyone pretends for one night that my crippling mid-century chair addiction is nothing more than a harmless personality quirk. You know, like my drinking. Anyway... since there is not any furniture in the new house yet, we are going to somehow transport seating for everyone from the old duplex.
The chair party started by loading a bunch of her chairs into the back of Dan's truck to transport to the new place. The transportation of the chairs also included a little bit of "ghostriding the whip" to add to the celebration.
Once at Liz's new place she ushered us in for the grand tour. And of course, to unload all of her chairs.
Congrats on your first home Liz! You are a homeowner!
