Downtown in December

One day I would LOVE to go to New York City at Christmas time, walk through Times Square, see the giant Christmas Tree and go ice skating (basically live out a movie montage while "Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree" plays in the background). But for now, Oklahoma City will have to suffice, and I have to say, it is doing a great job. Devon Energy is putting on "Downtown in December" events, most of the restaurants and stores are decked out with lights and decor, and I am absolutely eating it up.

Saturday, Cole and I took part in the SandRidge Santa Run 5k. As previously stated, I am not a good runner. I really dislike it and am incredibly hard on myself and get discouraged easily. But for some reason, I keep running, keep signing up for 5Ks and keep thinking I will begin to one day "like" running and get better at it (still waiting on that day to come....). After finishing the Dallas Turkey Trot at Thanksgiving (and actually enjoying it!) I was hoping to enjoy this race as well. Although it was cold and I was stuck at the back of the pack with the stragglers with a horrible side cramp, I managed to shave a minute off my Turkey Trot time, finish in the middle of my division, AND finish in a good mood (thats the big shocker). Good for me! Cole, on the other hand, got 5th in his division, hey oh! (Although he may or may not have been signed up under the wrong gender..... whoops!).

Saturday night we went out on the town to the tastiest Burger Joint in the history of the world (seriously), S&B. If you have never been, go. I'm not kidding. You won't be disappointed. I recommend just about everything on the menu, but the Elvis Burger and the Hot Mess Pie could possibly be two of the best things I've ever tasted in my entire 23 years. By the way, isn't the picture in front of the lights the cutest ever? I think so. 

Finally, Sunday night, we went downtown once again to a Thunder game. We sat in what I like to call the "French Fry Section," and my seat was right next to the Thunder Girls. Now, I'm not saying I believe in my head that I'm a professional cheerleader, but I'm not saying I don't. I spent the better part of the game memorizing their routines (I got it down pretty good - LETS GO THUNDER *shake shake, shake shake shake*) and feel that with a little fine tuning in the dance department, I could make the team. Thunder Up! Maybe I'll take some time off of running and try some dance classes..... Anyone want to join??!

OKC, props to you for being a good NYC substitute in my Christmas movie montage. Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds can be our stunt doubles at any time..... I'm sure it would be a big hit.
