I’m finally home after dog sitting for my best work buddy Gabrielle. Her little critters behaved quite well, although we did have our fits of barking at the neighbors. I was not above participating in that activity. The pups kept me company while I watched true crime and scared myself silly. I watched Investigation Discovery almost exclusively. It definitely gave me nightmares.
I was sure to bring my favorite gadgets and comforts to make myself at home. I’m not going to lie, I brought my tea kettle, french press and coffee. I can’t do without. I also made sure to bring my iPad for Thought Catalog reading and Pinterest pinning. Some things never change.
Jay and I went to the Myriad Botanical Gardens in downtown OKC this weekend. It was my first time. I know, well shameful since I’ve been living here for 9 years. It was a rich experience! The air in a green house type environment is always so invigorating. It’s the kind of oxygen that creates superheroes.
I cracked a joke about this being the butterfly’s paradise, a play on the Coolio song Gangsta’s Paradise. It solicited a sympathy laugh from Jay. He’s so polite. He even overlooked the singing of the parody song and the little dance that went along with it. That’s a true best friend, guys.
Y’know, it was really sweet of the Urban Planners to name this bridge after me, but I really should call them up and correct them on the spelling. It’s Crystle with a -TLE, not the -TAL you’re used to. It’s OK guys, it happens all the time.
All jokes aside, it’s a lovely area to visit. The new Devon energy tower is going up right next to it. It’s truly a giant addition to the skyline!
If any of you have the chance to visit the Oklahoma City metro, I definitely recommend the Botanical Gardens.
Have a great weekend!
