The most exciting thing that has happened lately would be the visiting of my family. Last week, they came to see me. My mom made it a point to be with me the whole time, so we were quite inseparable. She went with me to work and met Abby and Jackson. She oohed and gooed over them like I do everyday. I tried to show her around Tulsa a little. We went and got spray tans. (If you haven't yet tried this, you totally should. I laugh the whole time it sprays me, because it's just so weird. It made me two shades darker...unfortunately two shades darker than pale still does not equal tan.) I took her to some local shops. But mostly we sat around and watched movies. She had an overload of Ambytime and is now having difficulty adjusting back to normal life. I also get upset when we separate and apparently I have been doing this since I was a baby. I think it has something to do with being breastfed for too long.
My brother and dad had some work to do while they were here. So, I mostly saw them at meal time. One of the nights we had dinner with Nathan's parents at India Palace, our favorite restaurant. It's very fun to be with both of our families at the same time. We are all a bit goofy. Except our dads who sat at the end of the table and talked missions and Bible the whole time, while everyone else was making obscene jokes. I also took them to try Pei Wei for the first time, so delicious.
And of course everyone finally got to meet our little Sherman. I'm quite sure their lives will never be the same. It was nice to have them here. Hopefully, we'll be seeing them again next month at the beach!

The cats keep taking naps on the kitchen floor, I guess it's cooler. So I'm going to go try that.

It's just that I miss calling Tisha to plan a last minute sleepover. I miss staying up late with a bunch of friends and never running out of things to talk about. I miss going to see a chick flick and crying even though it's corny. I miss having someone to get a pedicure with. Sure living with a boy is cool, but they won't notice that your eyeshadow matches your shoes or that your eyelashes look especially long, are you using a new mascara? So, to everyone who has a friend like this within a reasonable distance, hug her and tell her how much you appreciate her.

Sherman is confused as to what the appeal is of squirrels. Here Isabell trys to explain. (I would tell you what it is, but I don't speak cat.)
I also have this picture of Nathan from when I lived in Nashville. I've been saving it for the appropriate time. I can't think of a better one. My neighbors had "Rocky" as a pet for about a week until he died.
