Monet and the Seine at Philbrook

If you've read my blog or followed me on social media for any amount of time, you know I love Philbrook museum. We love 2nd Saturdays, and have gone back for many other great free, seasonal events.    Right now, they are hosting a traveling exhibit called "Monet and the Seine," showcasing much of Claude Monet's artwork from the period of time where he lived in different locations along the Seine river in France.     We wanted to save the best for last, so we first toured the entire museum and all the exhibits that are there all the time, including my favorite: the gardens.   I just can't help but wish my own garden at home looked like this when I am there. I walk through the gardens so much...

Tulsa Food Roundup

Tulsa Food Roundup

When you're a divorced parent, Summer usually means extended periods of time with less-than-usual or zero amounts of children. For my husband and me, that means lots of going out to eat. It's amazing how much eating out you can afford when you're not having to feed six people on a daily basis!    I've been eating and experiencing so many yummy places this Summer, with full intentions of writing up a post about each and every one, but for the sake of time (and my majorly slacking blog skills as of late), I'm just going to do an epic (and I mean epic) blog post about all of them.    I call this the Tulsa Food Roundup. Buckle up, y'all; this post is EPIC.   First up: R Bar   We are LOVING R Bar....

Sharing the Magic of My Childhood

Sharing the Magic of My Childhood

This Summer, we have been making a point to share with our kids the movies we grew up on. It's been so fun to see their reaction to movies like these:           These are all movies we've watched as a family this Summer and it's been a lot of fun. Movies still on the list are:   The Princess Bride The Three Amigos The Karate Kid Ghostbusters Labyrinth And most recently, I got to share the magic of Back to the Future with my littles and one of their friends at Guthrie Green's Movies in the Park. Of course, when you go to Guthrie Green, it's always way more fun than you expected and quite the adventure.   When we...

#CoUFest is Good for Tulsa

#CoUFest is Good for Tulsa

It's time! Today marks the first day of the second ever Center of the Universe Festival in Tulsa. But if you're talking about it on social media, be sure to join the cool kids table and use the hashtag #COUFEST. C'mon, you know you want to go tweet about it!   We went to #CoUFest 2013 and had a BLAST. I love the CoU Festival for the music, but you know what I love even more? I love how amazing it is for the City of Tulsa, my hometown. There's a lot of talk on blogs and social media about community and how building community is good for families and economy and education and so many other things. Great communities have great events like this! Think of Austin, Texas and Austin City Limits Music Festival. A festival this size...

I Scream, You Scream...

I Scream, You Scream...

We all scream for ice cream, don't we? Did you know there's an exciting new way to experience ice cream right here near Tulsa?   Texas based Blue Bell Creameries has one of their factories located in Broken Arrow at 8201 E. Hwy 51, and they offer tours of the facility Monday through Friday from 9am - 2pm. Recently I got my crew and a few friends together and scheduled an appointment for a tour.    We donned our complimentary Blue Bell hats and started getting excited!   There's a little brick building where you check in, pay, get your hat and wait for the rest of the attendees, then you follow the sidewalk to the side of the building over to the actual creamery!  The tour guide began by...
