On a Buffalo Hunt

Le boy is one of the best things that has ever happened to me - and he definitely appreciates my "enthusiasm" about certain things in life.

For example, he is a big fan of politics (personally, I think there may be politics in his future, but I digress) and has recently encouraged me to watch the GOP debates with him.

Well, both times I have gotten a bit "feisty" and spoken - in an elevated volume - to specific candidates, as if they can hear me through the TV. I am very opinionated regarding certain issues and how the candidates treat one another. I will not share my specific views here, but I really think there should only be 3 candidates in the race.

Anyway... whenever I yell something at the TV, M will laugh or his jaw will drop in shock at my rants. But to my comfort, he assures me that, "It's cute how feisty you get. I love that you're so opinionated."

Back to my original statement: He appreciates my "enthusiasm" about certain things in life. Well, in my life in OKC, one of those things is the painted buffalo statues around the city. I have a goal to have my picture taken (and M wants his done too) with all of them. So, on Sunday we went on a scouting trip:

The UPS One

This one is my favorite - it is completely covered in glass stones and the horns are blown glass - obviously it's behind closed doors, but so pretty!

Jackson Pollock Buffalo

This one is kind of ugly...

The corral of buffalo

There are a few more in the city that we didn't snap pictures of, but I think we are ready to go out for our Okie-glamorous buffalo accessorized photo shoot!

What I learned from this day is that love is not only patient and kind, but it is also indulgent and supportive of buffalo obsessions - aka, I have one selfless boy in my life.

Life life glamorously,

  1. There used to be one on OCU campus! It sat right in front of the Administration building, but they moved it somewhere when I was freshman. Wish I knew where it went so I could help you snap a shot!
