I poured my grandpa a cup of root beer with a straw and he sat on the couch with my dad and watched the OU game for a bit with Ryan. They spent the afternoon with us then took Macauley with them to stay in a hotel near Bass Pro Saturday evening while Ryan and I went to dinner with some friends we already had plans with. We all met for breakfast the next morning then they were on the road back to Muskogee. I'm so glad my grandpa got to see where we live, put my life in context a bit. He told Lindsay that he always tells everyone how proud he is of all of us, how he likes to tell people that Lindsay and I "teach school." He's just so sweet and soft, so sharp-minded, too. I told him he could move into the house for sale next door to us and we'd take care of him. He just chuckled. It's a huge house. Far from his home.
It was so nice to have a clean house to lounge around in on Sunday. The 49ers got beat pretty bad, which put a damper on Ryan's day, but I took a couple of naps (yes, more than one) and then we went for a family run/bike ride on the Greenways trail. Such a nice weekend, the highlight of which was squeezing my sweet Grandpa Jude and knowing I make him proud.

Everyone seems to be embracing the new Bistro Market, opened up just a few weeks ago by our local Price Cutter chain. They have a big buffet and salad bar that were super busy, as well as most of your general grocery needs (and then some), just presented in a more urban, charming way. We will head back soon to try the food, I think.

I also got lots of thoughtful gifts from my friends, too: the red faceted candle urn from Steph and Adrian, The Postmistress from Janice, the little coin purse and several other edible goodies plus lunch from McAlister's at school from Amy, the mani/pedi certificate from Yvonne and Ray and the Banana Republic card from my college roommate Julie, who I got to hang out with last night.
Ryan indulged my every whim all week, and gave me this Merlotte's tee in a nod to one of our favorite shows to watch together. Macauley picked out the candles for me...Ryan said Macauley also took a really long time picking out my card, which has music and a recorded message inside.
