nmf 8

[deus eyeslow]
it's that time of year again for, you guessed it, norman music festival! a weekend filled with bands, food, shops, and lots and lots of walking. thankfully, days of rain and overcast cleared up just in time for gorgeous was a great weekend to say the least.
for the weekend, we played host to our friends tom & leslie, and m&j. since they both live outside of norman, they needed a place to post up, and we were more than happy to have them over. so, before we ventured out for that night's fun, T and i whipped up some of my famous fried chicken and mac 'n cheese. it was too delicious, and the perfect jumping off point for the weekend to come.

breakfast burrito wake-up call with a side of funny stories from the night before. delicious and hilarious. then, back out to the festival we went...

[bruce break from the festival - necessary]
the heat started to get to us so, we walked back to the house to cool off, eat, and get ready for day two, round two!

breakfast at, my personal favorite, the diner, with another recap before our guests headed back home. then, icy-hot for the legs (they were so sore), lotion to soothe my shoulders (they got a little extra rays), and a nap (for obvious reasons).  
we had such a great time as always, and loved getting to meet up with so many of our friends over the weekend. until next year norman!

new to me: pops

last weekend on our drive back from tulsa, T and i hit a bit of standstill traffic. thankfully, after looking at imaps, we re-routed to get home on the infamous route 66. it could not have been a more picturesque drive plus, the pups took full advantage of smelling all the new scents from the nearby farms. so, for the most part, uneventful, minus us being able to stay away from the traffic. that is until we ran into pops!

for those who don't know, pops, is a sweet tourist spot alongside route 66 with, you guessed it, soda pop. hundreds of soda pop to be exact. not to mention, i had heard their burgers and shakes were dynamite. so, of course, when i first heard of it, i made a mental note to check it out. but, not knowing where it was, it slipped my mind. until, we spotted the pop sculpture coming up and i woke up the pups by squealing, "oh my gosh, T, it's pops! pull over!".

[shades of green]

not only was it crazy popular but, i was completely unprepared for how many options of pop there would be! since it was T and i's first time, we went the classic route and picked up a couple varieties of root beer, and a couple of colas to take home. we did have the pups with us, so, we couldn't be too long ;)

[classic candy options]

[i love seeing rows of cycles]

can't wait to go back to try out their food and pick up a few more sodas!
