The eagle has landed. Back home in the midwest, but haven't a free second yet! I can't wait to share all the pictures and a few stories from our trip to L.A. But, for now, here's a little preview of what's to come...

Megan, I hope you don't mind if I borrow your 'easy update' tool...

Any baylor fans were quickly engulfed by the sea of orange.
a 'house divided'...with a few 'sibling' rivalries. Go 'pokes.
the new and improved Boone Pickens Stadium.
We stuck around for dinner & hung out, played some games @ Cody and Sarah's adorable home sweet home. While my own family may be miles away, I know I 'feel' like I have so much family nearby...and Aaron & I want to truly appreciate and take advantage of the time we all have here in Oklahoma right now. Who knows what the future holds for all of us? But, for now, this is home.
and we love it.

(this is the scene where the clouds part and the angels sing...)
I did study my butt off, too. and worked some.
...we'll march forever down the years-- as long as stars shall shine... Mrs. BU & Mr. Didn't miss a single home game while he was here. We were sitting up in the 'box seats', or the heavens. All you can eat in a fancy padded chair. yeah, sic' em bears.
We swept ol' Iowa State 38 to 10 for our first Big XII win of the season. You can check out ESPN's No. 3 Top Play right here with the second touchdown of the night. Unbelieveable. You have to watch this to see for yourself.
and win all your victories for the GREEN and GOOOLD! Practicing their Bear Claws. Did you know there's actually a wikipedia entry on Sic' em Bears? So informative. Yep, that's it. I'm going to have to quit my job and go join Baylor Admissions. We're actually headed to Stillwater next weekend to catch the Bears v. Cowboys - we may just be tailgating - but, excited nonetheless!
And now, in an act of total nostalgia... a snapshot from my own Parent's Weekend, all of us donning our green and gold.
my goodness, Trae, Logan, haha I don't even know what to say...we're all almost unrecognizable!

As if these words haven’t crossed my lips a hundred times already, but Happy Birthday to my one-and-only. & Happy Birthday to my dear mom!
My man just crossed over into---gasp---late twenties. The big 2-6er. And my mom too! Imagine that. (well, she could get away with it anyway) We celebrated with our palettes last week – slipping off for a lunch at Sala Thai and then a dinner & presents with family at the Cheesecake Factory. It is more fun to give than receive, I get such a kick out of seeing Aaron smile on his big day. He’s the most selfless, amazing, generous man - who deserves a wonderful day and a giant slice of chocolate chip cookie cake. (no, cheesecake is simply not enough!) In bloggy etiquette, I think here is where I’m supposed to eloquently display my affection for the man of the hour, but I think I’m gonna save it for the birthday card. And you all already know I’m crazy about this guy, and that I pretty much feel like the luckiest girl in the world thanks to this here twenty-something.So, my man is all set – ‘twas a bicycle birthday. Between Aaron’s parents and I, he’s now hooked up with Specialized biking shoes and clips [they replace your pedals so you actually are connected to your bicycle. So tour-de-france. This beautiful union provides 20% more efficiency apparently, and an increased awareness of the possibility of falling to the ground still clipped in - and looking ridiculous to passersby]…as well as a pair of PG-13 six-panel padded riding shorts. This guy means business. It’s my goal to get him to look up from the books at least one night this week to actually get out and ride before all this gorgeous weather disappears!
…& we were pumped to have some very special visitors recently! Our little apartment swelled to five inhabitants as Carly (the bff), Franklin (her maltese), and Mr. Bo Jangles shacked up here for the weekend. Unfortunately, the birthday boy had quite a bit of studying to do – but we planned for some major much needed girls-eyes-only time. It’s so effortless when a great friend comes to town, you can always just jump in there and pick up where you left off – like you were still just down the hall in the dorms, just a few steps down the hall as roommates, and then as next door neighbors. We strolled through the City in classic Jae-and-Carly style hitting the shops, indoor and out…only spending a meager 6-7 hours in retail therapy. A mere warm-up round in Jae-and-Carly terms… [who once spent 12 hrs in Dallas, returning home only after visitng FIVE different shopping malls.] …but, needless to say, we had a gay ol’ time & I think Aaron may have been happier that he was left at home with the pups.
We took Carly to Hideaway for the "best pizza in OKC" and then a little arcade action. you know we left with some awesome prizes.
how carly earned her 72 tickets. shoot the hillbillies, a politically incorrect target practice.
Carly's first lighthouse. Had a great visit with you! We'll do it again very soon. I'll be brushing up on my Virus Blaster.
