Tulsa's Underground Childbirth Community

So, I was going to write up a blog post about Labor Day weekend's Tulsa Rally to Improve Birth and Birth Fair (I know that was forever ago, but seriously, that's how long I've been thinking about this). But as I got to looking at my pictures I was overwhelmed thinking about each and every woman in the images and what amazing people they are and what incredible organizations they represent.   As a member of Tulsa's birth community, I see these women as my friends and colleagues. All of the things we do on a daily basis have become second nature. When I really sit down and think of all the lives these women touch, and all the different aspects of pregnancy, childbirth and postpartum health and well being that each addresses, it's really fantastic. I just...

Strong is the new skinny!


Strong is the new skinny!

I wish I could say I'm the one who coined the term "Strong is the new skinny." But I'm not. I'm pretty sure I saw it first on a Bob Harper twitter post.    But you know what? Strong IS the new skinny. In the last few years, the fitness trend has been steering away from cardio workouts like this:   <iframe width="420" height="315" src="//" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>   to things like boot camp and Cross Fit. I've never tried Cross Fit, honestly because I've been freaked out by posts like this about "Rhabdo," although I have lots of friends who do and love Cross Fit. It's just not...

Why, yes, Tulsa DOES have a hockey team!


Why, yes, Tulsa DOES have a hockey team!

I'm completely convinced you do not have a to be a sports fan, or know anything about sports in general, to have a good time at a professional sporting event. I have enjoyed live sports events for a long time, but I have to admit I'm usually there for the concessions, friends and the cheerleaders. Yes, I'm one of those people who cheer for the cheerleaders!   Having two teams in the Big 12 Conference, Oklahoma has historically been associated with college football. Now, with the Thunder making headlines, we've got a reputation for having an NBA team too. You may not have known that Tulsa has its own hockey team, but we do! Sunday was the opening game of the season and thanks to Academy Sports offering free tickets, we got to go!  ...

Smokin' Hot Date


Smokin' Hot Date

I don't know if you know this or not, but my husband is smokin' hot, and I LOVE going on dates with him. When we do get the opportunity for date night, I usually want to go to expensive, fancy, romantic places. But I'm starting to learn that date locations don't have to be any of those things to actually be romantic and fun.   Ladies like flowers, chocolate, wine and conversation, but what do men want? Men want beer, greasy food, sports and cigars. Stogies is a relatively new cigar bar in Broken Arrow, and when I suggested we go there one night, my husband was a little surprised. "YOU want to go to STOGIES?" he asked. I said, "Well don't YOU want to?" He said, "Yeah, but I never thought you would!"   For...

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...
