Picture overload....

My computer won't even upload anymore pictures! Actually, Brent's computer..that I have somewhat taken over! I had a desktop, a brand new one, when I started college. Then, I began to use his MAC G4 laptop. Honestly, I don't know why I ever used a desktop. Wireless is one of the greatest inventions in the whole wide world. However, my pictures, and the quality my camera is set to take, have used just about all this computer's space!

I do think my next computer will be a MAC. Brent says he is going to get me one strictly for pictures. This one has probably 7000 songs and I now 7000 pictures. I am going to purchase an external drive! This way, my pictures will be backed up and off this computer. I do plan to put them on cds as well. I liked to be organized about it too.

I have been quite annoyed lately that I'm behind on uploading and posting pictures. I just look through my camera. So, hopefully, if I have a relaxing Sunday, I can get that taken care of!

Last weekend Brent and I spent the weekend in Fayetteville for a football game. My parents were here in Tulsa from Thursday-Monday to help my brother move into his apartment. That was nice that we could spend some time with them. My mother is a shopper and cooker so that is always nice.

We have no plans this weekend! My friend Jamie's birthday was last weekend but she was working and we were out of town so I think some celebrating will go on this weekend! Tomorrow night, Thursday, we are celebrating Dara's birthday :) I'm getting picked up in a limo and we are heading to dinner. A group of people are going to see Rascal Flatts and Taylor Swift but Brent and I are not. I love celebrations though.

Speaking of concerts, I need to keep up with the music scene around here! I get annoyed when I miss something. For instance, Beck and MGMT will be here on Sunday but it is sold out. I do not know really why we have so many Sunday shows around here, but we do. Lil Wayne was scheduled this past Friday (when I was in Fayetteville)..it got canceled and moved to Oct.10th..so perhaps I'll get my way to that. The fair starts tomorrow! So, we are going to a few concerts at the Rodeo next weekend! I love fall...and I love that there is a pumpkin patch close to our house that I drive by every day..I love that in turns into a Christmas tree farm right after pumpkin time!

Brent looked through my blog the other day while I was at worked. He called me and said he really thought I should get a new picture of our kitchen up so people were not mistaken from the picture I posted when we were buying the house. It has completely had a makeover! A lot of things in our house have...So, perhaps in one of my next few posts I'll show some "before" and "afters"..

Today I am excited about the new Lipstick Jungle season starting, decorating for Halloween and quesadillas for dinner. Fun huh? I liked Cashmere Mafia as well as Lipstick Jungle..but for some reason is got canceled. Who does the "cancel" the show polls? I want to be included!!

I have tasted a piece of Heaven......

and I am tickled...it's true...what you about to hear, you should take note of!

THIS - is, without a doubt, the best sandwich I've ever put into my mouth.



This is the tomato & mozzarella sandwich from Panera Bread Company. I've always liked their sandwiches..but this one..I like better than any sandwich I've ever had. True, I am quite fond of basil and mozzarella..but I do like bread as well. Well, they've put it all together with sun dried tomatoes and made a panini. It is spectacular!!! I'm not going to tell you how many times I've eaten it this week..but I wish they had a membership club card or something! Please, go eat one..just try it!

It has been raining here all day long! I know I look shit, I have to! I hope it clears up soon...it's not fun if you have to be out and about in it like I do. I'd rather be sitting on my couch watching a movie.

I think I'm going to decorate for Halloween soon. It seems early, but the months just keep flying by.

I'm liking this blogging thing :)

Six years ago today...

Brent and I started dating! :)

I year and a half after that, we got a dog :)

Almost two years ago, we got married :)

Best and biggest decision I've ever made :)

If I had my "college" computer here, I'd post pics from each year on Sept 10th...but I don't. I will post a few. At some point, when I get my other computer cleaned and get an external hard drive, I'll do a picture time line. It will be fun.

A FEW things I love about Brent...how much he loves me, how much he loves our dog. how much he loves both of our families. how he became good friends with my friends. how he had good friends that wanted to be my friend. he thinks of others before himself. he learned to like the shows I like. he holds my hand. he sings and is good. he gets me a card on special occasions. he knows what I'm wanting before I ask. he does what I want without me asking. his beard. he plays and talks to elton as if he were a human and not a dog. he wants to succeed at everything he does. he accepts that I take a lot of pictures. he loves his nieces so much. he is cleanly. he doesn't care what others think. he would be okay with being the "wedding singer". he let me take over his g4 computer. he has razorback team spirit, at all times. he lets me buy what I want. he is so cute. he thinks kate hudson is as hot as I do. he can sleep late or wake up early. the fact he told me he'd get matching tattoos if we ever got married. he brings me home flowers for no reason. the way he smells. the way he gets close to my face when he giggles. he asks me what color shirt he should wear. he proposed to me in my favorite city. he likes my hair curly. he can cook. he likes to cook...I could go one forever and ever and ever...I'm sure you get the picture :)

Speaking of pictures, here are a FEW of us! I don't have all the dates as this computer isn't organized yet. They are from oldest down to newest..

Halloween is fun!


Fall TV! I love so many shows on the fall, I can't show you visually, I'll do a few then list some!
Love One Tree Hill - Brent and I have watched since it first began. LOVE Sophia Bush!

Gossip Girl is addicting and good

I've slacked from Grey's before but last season I loved it all over again

We've not always had HBO, but we do now..We are caught up with Entourage. It's good!

I also love..
Law & Order: SVU

I liked Private Practice but lost track of it.
I liked Cashmere Mafia but it got canceled

SCARY huh! If I'm as busy as I was last fall, you will find me watching all these every Sunday! It's actually very fun. After all, I can't miss the fair! Luckily, my husband gave in a long time ago and decided if would just be best to like the shows I did. I do like watching football too!

This fall, I may actually get these...I've never had them but all the sudden I think I want some..everyone says they love theirs..

I've been addicted to these for many years....they are a fall winter shoe, I think they would look funny with shorts?


Well that is all for now....we got new couches and a mattress...they are AWESOME. I'll post pics soon! Until then, LOVE! ~ Megan Nicole Marshall the first
