Birthday Weekend Part 1

This is a little late coming, but I am just now getting around to downloading the pictures. For my birthday this year, Brady got us a hotel room at the Colcord in OKC. I've been wanting to stay there because this was where I began my "adult" life. I worked there when it was an office building, Oklahoma Today was located on the first floor. I moved on from that job after 2 years (????) but I learned so much, met so many people and felt grown up for the first time ever. So, when they turned it into a hotel, I knew I would one day have to stay there.
Brady made that possible this last weekend. I spent the day with my best friend, Can. We then had dinner together with Can and her husband at the Deep Fork Grill. It was good but oh my was it pricey. We ended the night at Edna's off of Classen. That place had some pretty tasty beverages. I also enjoyed watching Edna dance on the bar. Brady and I headed back to our posh digs (for us anyway) and counted sheep until the next morning. Sunday we ate at Hideaway! Best Pizza EVER! While eating we talked about how much we missed Oklahoma. Brady even said, "Our hearts are here, aren't they?" Even though we may live in Kansas for a few more years, we will move back someday.
So that was my birthday present from my hubby....a weekend in one of my favorite places. Colcord HotelOklahoma TodayFancy Bathroom Love this bed & the guy below playing pool.

Sounds like you had a great weekend! The pics are great! So Brady actually went out WITH the group? So it's just me and Mike he hates? Haha!

I know what you mean about Oklahoma being where your heart is. However, I've resigned myself to the fact that it'll be another 10 years before I'll be able to return. Until then I'll just remain a stranger in a strange land...
