beginning a new year

Keith and I went back to my hometown of Oklahoma City to visit my mom for New Year's Eve day. She was recovering from surgery, and I really wanted to give her a hug, since my brother was too "busy" with his own life to just take a few minutes of his time to come over and do that. I drive 3 hours out of my way just to give her a simple hug, when she needed it. It makes me so mad how football and friends come before family, in my brother's case. But anyway...that's not what this post is meant to be about. On with the pics:





We started out our day-trip by getting gas at RaceTrac. It was really close to 7am when this photo was taken, and I just happened to look at the sky and this is the result. It had a sort of ominous feel to it, which I assume was very fitting, considering what my new year's ended up to be...





Keith doesn't like it when I drive with no hands on the wheel. heh. I was showing him how good my alignment was, now that it's fixed.









Some people find it hard to believe that I'm a rocker. Seriously, this photo was kind of difficult to accomplish successfully because I was still trying to pay attention the road and simultaneously pose for the picture... heh, it actually took us about 5 tries before I got it right.











Keith and I posing for the picture before going out to Bricktown in downtown OKC to celebrate the new year.










Keith and I again, at the canal near Bricktown. Shortly after this photo was taken, we ended up just driving back to Texas, because I was already sick, and the freezing cold air was only making me sicker. I couldn't stay out in that weather for 3 more hours...so yeah. And I had bought that beanie to help cover my ears, but it didn't work.









and this is my pup Brandy, looking completely adorable while she licks her paws.
