Life is what you make of it; make honey.
Celebrating a King
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. that is.
Ms. Arthenia Schumpert runs the store, and has to be one of the sweetest, friendliest women I've ever met. We talked and tried on shoes and had a great time. Then she told me about her shoe parties! To host a shoe party, you invite all your friends to the store, she provides snacks and drinks, you and your friends play dress up, and you get free shoes!
Anyone have a Friday night free? I think I could find one!
Arthenia was so sweet she even offered to keep my bag of shoes behind the counter with my receipt while we continued to shop and watch the parade. Thanks!
We continued on our adventure, and found The Glove Box right next door.
The newest boutique on Greenwood, it features trendy women's fashion at "college prices," so everything is affordable. They had some CUTE jeans, and the highest tag I saw was $45! Ms. Meka and her daughters had also set up a table of goodies in honor of the holiday, and my littles were happy to participate. When I asked the boys to show me their treats, Aidan said, "Alec, let's cheers!"
I couldn't help but get a picture of the owner, Meka, and her two gorgeous daughters! There's just something about a family run business that makes you feel good.
They gave me just the confidence I needed to believe I was cool enough for this hat - thanks ladies!
Needless to say, the littles were on cloud nine with their cookies, candy and pink lemonade!
At this point, the start of the parade was approaching, so we figured it was time to get outside and start watching. One last stop into Fat Guys Burger Bar, for a pit stop and a soda.
I've heard AMAZING things about this burger joint and their menu seems to confirm the reports. Must get back when there's more time (and I'm not trying to eat so healthy) to try one of their Fat & Juicy cheese stuffed burgers!
And then we waited,
until we finally saw motorcycles signalling the beginning of the parade!
Hi Tulsa Police Department! Thank you for protecting us!
We saw lots of great organizations represented, stretch limos, fire trucks, trolleys, and some great floats. Take a look at PSO's float!
My five year old pointed and said, "Look Mom, there we are on that float, like his dream. We're all together!"
Sheesh, they really do pay attention, don't they?
They had tunes blaring, and I tried to get the boys to show me their moves, only to realize Louie the Lightning Bug was putting us all to shame!
