Eight Squared

Kelley tagged me in this little game! My sweet, sweet friend from college. Who, by the way, is about to have her first baby!! Pop over and show her some love. :)

Here are the rules:
1. Go to your photo files and select the 8th photo folder.
2. Select the 8th photo in that folder.
3. Post that photo along with the story behind it.
4. Then challenge 8 blogging friends to do the same.


Well, this little gem of a picture was taken really close to the time when our company had just moved us to Bartlesville, OK. Ryan & I were still trying to get to know people and learn our new jobs. Although we moved a lot closer to family, we still didn't know that many people in our new town.

This picture was of us getting ready to go to our first big B'ville gathering. It was a stop light party. People came dressed in a color that represented their dating "status".
Green = Single Yellow = Proceed with caution Red = In a relationship Black = Married (Ha!)

It was a fun, creative way to mingle and know where everybody stood. I remember having a blast and watching the interns all dressed in green hit on each other. :) That was when I realized I was going to like this place and the fun people in it. We really do miss the ville and need to get back to visit!

On that note, I'm going to pick eight people to join in this fun.

Malinda - A follow "Bartian" (Martian + Bartlesville). We had so many good times together and I miss this girl dearly.

Wendi - I met this beautiful lady through the wonderful blog world and found out her husband works for ConocoPhillips as well!! Such a small world AND they live in Doha, Qatar!!

Rachel - We met through her hubby who also works for ConocoPhillips. She & her husband are newlyweds and such a fun couple to hangout with here in H-town.

Sarah - Also resides in the good ol' state of Oklahoma. Her husband works for COP too and our husbands have worked together a lot. She is such a creative, gorgeous, mother to three precious boys.

Leah - Another pretty lady whose husband also works for COP and has an adorable little girl.

Jennifer - Also a wife to a COP employee (see the COP theme?) and mother to a handsome little boy.

Megan - The sweet thang works for the great company of COP and has a gorgeous little girl.

Aaron & Amanda - This awesome couple used to be our neighbors here in Houston and have just recently moved back to Bartlesville (for the second time). Aaron works for the company too. We miss them!


  1. So fun! and i love the theme of the party.. too funny for a work gathering :) Have a great weekend dear.

  2. That is such a cute picture of you two!!

  3. Yeh! I hope I have eight folders on this computer. Thanks for the challenge!
    btw- larry keeps telling me about some amazing monster cookies either you or Brittney made. If they were from you I would LOVE the recipe!
