Botans + Dog Sitting

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!
