Making the Most of Oktoberfest as a Family


Making the Most of Oktoberfest as a Family

Last year, I was pleased (seeing as it was my first time ever) to discover that Tulsa's Oktoberfest is truly a family affair. Even though the day I attended was a little cold and dreary, I was quickly warmed up with some tasty seasonal beer, fun in the kids tent, and a hug from the chicken!  Since I'm definitely planning to attend with the kids this year, I thought I'd do some pre-planning to make sure we make the most of it. Sometimes making the most of things has to do with saving money ahead of time, but when you've got a family of six, you'll do anything to make sure the process is smooth and headache free when you get there! There are several different valuable ways to buy tickets and passes this year, but I want to point out a couple of...

First Friday and Falafel in Downtown Tulsa


First Friday and Falafel in Downtown Tulsa

If it's been a while since you've been to Downtown Tulsa on the first Friday of the month, I implore you to get your Okie booty off the couch and go tonight!    On the first Friday of every month, The Brady Arts District in Downtown Tulsa hosts the First Friday Art Crawl. Beginning in 2007, the First Friday Art Crawl features all the art galleries, studios and museums in the Brady Arts District opening their doors for free from 6-9pm on the first Friday of every month!

Flying High at Sky Zone


Flying High at Sky Zone

I don't know about you, but just as we start to get small tastes of cool weather in Oklahoma, I start thinking about exploring indoor activities for my family. Granted, we take full advantage of Fall with all the festivals, pumpkin patches and hiking around with the changing leaves, but I also want to make sure I'm armed and ready for rainy days or times where it's too cold or gloomy to go outside.    Pretty much since it opened, my kids have wanted to try out Sky Zone. Before you think it's for kids only, listen to the description. Their website shares, "Sky Zone is the world's first indoor trampolining park. We're the inventors of "fun fitness" and makers of trampolines as far as the eye can see. []"  ...

I Heart Mompreneurs!


I Heart Mompreneurs!

Did you know Forbes voted Tulsa #1 in it's list of Top 10 Cities for Young Entrepreneurs? I can believe it. Among the people I know personally, I can count several thriving small business owners. You probably know them too.   How about Tulsans like Libby and Jeremy Auld, owners of Elote Cafe? They revolutionized the downtown Tulsa food scene with sustainable food and business practices, recycled restaurant decor, AMAZING food, and don't forget the Luchadores!     Then there's artists like Steve Cluck whose passion for his hometown inspired his beloved Don't Hate the 918, and I Heart Tulsa t-shirts that are worn all over the globe (I even wore one in my engagement pics)! Yours truly had the...

Yoga and Much More at I AM


Yoga and Much More at I AM

If you haven't heard of the I AM Yoga, Art and Music Festival you may not have been living under a rock exactly, but you're definitely missing out!   The 4th Annual I AM festival is in full swing this weekend only. Beginning Friday, September 12th, it continues through tomorrow, September 14th. Entrance to the festival is FREE, unless you plan to attend one of the many amazing yoga classes. I was able to pop in this morning for one of the free community yoga classes at 10am.    Oop! There's some booties in downward dog!    One of those booties was about to be mine!  I absolutely LOVE practicing yoga outside, and especially with others. We ended the class in a circle, holding hands and after we...
