Antiques and Motors and Antique Motors

This past weekend was perfect. Matt and I had such a wonderful time together, living life. He took me up in a plane! It was my first flight with him since he got his license! So fun!

These were our views from the plane! The leaves were a bit past prime and they definitely looked better on the ground, but they were still much better than Oklahoma.  
That was one of the Finger Lakes in Upstate New York.
And it was so wonderful getting to hang out with friends. We're going to miss them when we officially move back to Oklahoma!
Speaking of Oklahoma, BOOMER SOONER. I could not believe how much we dominated the University of Texas last weekend. We enjoyed every minute of it.
My favorite part of the whole weekend was getting to cook with and for Matt. We made excellent breakfasts (e.g. Sausage and Apple Pancakes with Maple Cinnamon Butter) (Whatt?!? Yes, it was as good as it sounds). And it actually felt like fall!! It didn't even get above 60 degrees except for one day! So of course, we made delicious soups.
And Matt took me to antique shops! How sweet is he? Then we went to a museum about Glenn H. Curtiss, the "Fastest Man on Earth," who broke the speed record with the motorcycle he built (one of the first!) in 1903. He also engineered the first airplanes and motor boats, so the museum was chock full of motors, progressing through the twentieth century. So we both got to enjoy our respective loves: antiques and motors. And we had a blast we each other while doing so.   
Loved every minute of this weekend. Wish we could do it all over again exactly the same. 
Hope y'all had great weekend too!
