Andy’s ice creamI’ve been missing my fiancé a little much lately which made me realize I never wrote a blog post on my last trip to Oklahoma which was about a month ago. Better late than never!
Right before I left to go to Oklahoma I quit my contract job that was not filling my cup. It was my first professional job that I have ever quit and it was difficult to quit. However, I had been praying about it for about a month and God gave me confirmation that it’s what I needed to do. I wanted to make sure that it was what God wanted me to do and not just what I wanted to do. Needless to say I was ready for a trip out of town.
So I just wanted to highlight a couple of my favorite eats and activities Matt and I enjoyed!
You are basically going to think we are two people in their mid-twenties that are heading to their eighties, but it’s cool. I wouldn’t change a thing. If your new to the blog then I wanted to fill you in that my fiance and I have been in a long distance relationship the past almost two years. Matt plans my trip to see him to OK and everything we do and I do vice versa when he comes to visit me in WV. It’s so much fun! However, I can’t wait until we are in the same state. #itwontbesoonbeforeLong
Let’s cover some of the eats first!
I think this was the first time in my life where I actually didn’t want another taco! LOL We literally had so many tacos. However, my favorite meal was on our first night there and Matt’s moms cooking is the best. She had made enchiladas, beans, rice, guacamole. Definitely a perk of marrying into a Guatemalan family. Plus they are the kindest people ever. God has truly blessed me to marry into their family.
Leftovers in a bowl. Looks strange but so good!
Overnight oats with almond butter for breakfast
Our fav donut truck now has its own coffee shop! It’s equally as cute and the donuts are equally delicious. Pictured here is a thin mint donut and sopapilla flavors. If you don’t know what a sopapilla is it is a Hispanic dessert. It’s basically fried dough with honey and cinnamon.
Andy’s ice cream
We love Andy’s frozen custard. We always go and I always get the same thing. I get Reese cups and fudge in the middle.
We has both heard great things about Torchy’s. I didn’t include it in the taco section above because it’s not authentic at all but so good! We will be back. That queso though!
Matt and I both love watching shark tank. Tom + Chee was on shark tank a couple years ago. They are known for making grilled cheese sandwiches and grilled cheese donuts. Interesting, right? Well I got the pesto turkey which had turkey, pesto, Roma tomatoes, and mozzarella. Matt got the Flying Cow which had turkey, bacon, and Gouda cheese. We split sandwiches so we could both try each other’s. We both thought the sandwiches were great, but it was a little pricy. The sandwich was like 8.00 with no side. At least include some chips!
This is a new breakfast spot that just opened up in Oklahoma City. I loved the decorations of this place. It was super cute! I got an omelet, GF toast, and bacon. Matt got pancakes and he said that they were super fluffy which is his favorite kind of pancake.
We went to the zoo with Matt’s friend Tyler and his son. I had never met Tyler and he is going to be Matt’s best man so it was cool finally getting to meet him. While we were at the zoo we ended up running into Matt’s parents, sister and brother-in-law and their kids.
Matt thought it would be fun if we attended a wedding expo. Poor guy he was one of the only males there. It was fun and we did get a lot of ideas for our wedding. It was really disturbing how many “diety” companies there were at the expo though and I’m sure it’s like that at all of them. Ladies, your worth is not in a number on the scale. Matt was like “maybe you should keep this in mind and attend the next one in WV with your business cards and talk about intuitive eating.” Hey not a bad idea!
Home and garden expo
We tried out some mattresses lol (Matt has a bad back) and got ideas for our future home. My favorite part of this expo was the seedtospoon herb workshop. You should download their app because it tells you everything you need to know about planting herbs. I planted basil for the first time last year and it survived lol. I would like to plant more in the future and now I know how!
I tried pilates for the first time when I visited Matt and I now love it. I’ve been going to FlyFitness since coming back to WV. My mom’s cousin is actually a pilates teacher there so it’s fun to see her as well.
Post-Pilates w/ my love
Matt and I are already learning how to compromise. He has very “clean” taste I would say where I like more funky things. We ended up registering for while plates with a funky shape. However, I think if it was up to me I would have picked a colored plate. That’s just one example. 🙂 We literally spent probably three hours at Target lol. We had to leave once and come back because Matt was getting hangry. I’m thankful for his patience though and love how we work things out. I’m excited to do life with this guy!
And that was my trip! Hope you all have an awesome week!
