Bucket List Items 2 & 3. Check

Oklahoma Bucket List:3. Take my Kansas friends on an Oklahoma adventure. 2. Drink a Limey and sign #TeamHaney at The Penny.

It's strange to me how quickly I'm marking things off this bucket list. At this rate, I'll have to make an addendum to carry me through until I'm ready to pack boxes!

I made a quick trip to Stillwater this weekend because the ever-so-adorable Jodi and Kelly (both, from Kansas and the reason for No. 3 on the Bucket List) were in town. They're quality those girls. We stayed true to Stillwater enjoying an extended lunch at Joe's. Had I been proactive, we'd swung by GIA for 'hoops. Maybe my heart wasn't ready to cross that many items off the list?

Instead we brought the rowdy to Joe's.

Honestly, I should cross this off the list twice because they weren't the only folks at the table. David Hayden (The carnivore trying veganism for two weeks), Rosie Templeton (Canadian turned Cowboy), and a twitterless Florida Gator held down the table, too.


Only Kelly could bring more joy to The Penny than a limey.

Brooke012613_Clay0010 This picture is only here for proof. Jodi, I'm so glad you were in the 405. Also, if Feb. 5th rolls around and I talk myself out of upgrading my phone, remind me of this picture. I need that new phone! (obviously for the camera? I realize how silly this is.)

It's my duty, to wear Pantone 166.

Two degrees + one Tiara = a firm obligation to incorporate Pantone 166 (the official orange of Oklahoma State) into every wardrobe choice during the month of October. I'll try to tone down my orange-ness during weekdays, but on weekends - my gameday clothing takes on a mind of its own.

Why? Homecoming, a kick-a football team, and I just happen to love the color.

I picked these sunglasses up at Like a Rhinestone Cowgirl .  Obviously, I only got to wear them for the first half of the Okstate vs. KU game. I thankfully stored them in my orange J. Simpson purse to welcome the rain.

{notice that chickenpox scare - I'm a pre-chicken pox vaccine kid and proud of it.}

Although I've never signed a 9 month lease agreement with a tiny human, I'm still a fan of their gameday fashion. Football tights? Obviously a great decision.

And, of course I didn't really know this kid. She happened to be at the tailgate - and I asked her boss {the mom} for permission, naturally.

I usually make fun of all jersey-wearers, which is probably why I didn't buy this jersey this past Saturday. But - I think I need it. I'm coveting this Blackmon jersey like nobody's business.

I want it so bad I'm having a hard time formulating sentences that will truly encompass my desire to wear this jersey during the Baylor game. {or Kansas, or Bedlam}

I'll keep you posted on if I can hold out on this purchase - it might be a tough battle.

(I've made a Pantone 166 board on pinterest if you're interested.)

Cowboys take the W.

My late-blooming love for tailgating doesn’t water-down the goosebumps that cover my arms the second the pre-game {poorly put together} video graces the screens at Boone Pickens. Sure I didn't start really tailgating until I was a junior or so..

Black on Black: my absolute favorite. I thought – hoped – the black on black color combo was going to wait until Bedlam. And, then, I hoped it would at least be paired with the black helmet.

All those years of working at the Shoe Bank on commission - and making bank from moms who weren't cut out for tailgating - were not worth it.

I love everything about game days. Even Thursday games when you have to leave OKC a little early and are a little too tired on Friday.
