Y’all, that long-awaited day is here! I finished my month of Whole30 on Wednesday. Thirty days of no sugar, dairy, grains, soy, beans, and more. We did it!
Having the internet go out sucks. Being without it for days can be really rough! Here’s 30 things to do that don’t need an internet connection!
Oklahoma is known for tornadoes, but what I didn’t think about before we moved here is that those winds make regular appearances even if they don’t funnel into a cyclone. We had a stretch here when tornado-force winds hit our area every four days or so! Between that and the accompanying hail, there’s bound to be some property damage.
In spite of it being somewhat normalized, our small town don’t move quickly on repairs. We lost our wifi during one and were told that the earliest appointment available was nine days away! Oh, the joy of a small town.
In Altus, Oklahoma, one of the biggest events of the year is the Rockin’ Rumble.
It’s talked up for months. People plan their schedules around it.
What is it? It’s a car show, folks.
Welcome to summer! Here in Oklahoma we’ve moved into the days of 90+ degree days already, so I don’t care what the official calendar says. We filled our long weekend with time with friends, lake time, and even got a surprise invitation to try out the C-17 flight simulator! That was incredibly cool. Now I can say I’ve flown a plane, right?
Within a month of getting back to Oklahoma, there were TWO somewhat-hilarious cultural events. Today I’m sharing one of these, the Mangum Rattlesnake Derby.
Imagine a small town carnival meets flea market. Now add any rattlesnake-related activity, wise idea or not. What you’re picturing is the Rattlesnake Derby.
For the next 30 days, I’m doing Whole30! It’s a 30 day detox program designed to give your body a reset. I’ll share my journey we go, and hopefully have some great recipes to pass on as we go!
Happy May from Oklahoma!
After a nine week training in Montgomery, Alabama, Logan and his fellow JAG officers graduated!!
JASOC, or Judge Advocate Staff Officer Course, preps JAGs on courts-martial, legal issues and operations law. The course is intended to round out their law school education and teach the differences and distinctions of military court system.
The graduation festivities consisted of two parts: a banquet followed by a graduation ceremony the following morning. The banquet was a black tie affair, complete with Air Force mess dress, awards, and speeches.
If you follow me on Instagram, you may have noticed our newest addition to the family! We got a puppy!! He’s a German Shepherd mix and we got him when he was eight weeks old. We wanted to get a young puppy that we could do all the training, and he is so stinkin’ cute that we fell in love immediately.
His name is Wedge. Wedge Antilles Myrick.
