Steak and Shake it Off

Okay, maybe that title is a lame attempt to integrate a Taylor Swift song, but no one ever said I didn't like cheesy jokes!   I've really been enjoying spending quality, one-on-one time with each of my kids. I recently had a lovely coffee date with my stepdaughter at Barnes and Noble, and a pizza lunch date with my son at CiCit's Pizza. Today I'll tell you about my lunch date with my other son at Steak and Shake!   Aidan, my 8 year old, is the kid that loves sweets. In fact, he got in trouble recently for pouring a sugar packet into his soda. No joke! I knew I had to suggest a lunch place for him that had some dessert, but seeing as his first pick was Russell Stover's, I needed to put some more thought into it!   ...

Cici's makes a perfect lunch date!

Cici's makes a perfect lunch date!

I shared in my last post about taking my stepdaughter to Barnes and Noble, that my husband and I are trying to be more intentional about spending individual time with each of our kids. The easiest way to do that, for us, seems to be to take them out to eat to places that are special to them or have their favorite food.    My littlest loves Cici's Pizza. In fact, all our kids love Cici's, but Alec had a special coupon for a free kid's meal with the purchase of an adult meal that he got at school, so he was the lucky one who got to have a special lunch date with Mommy on a school day!     I'm telling you, our kids love Cici's better than, well, other big name pizza and game venues. I think they're more interested in...

Barnes and Noble is Way More than a Bookstore!

Barnes and Noble is Way More than a Bookstore!

What do most 12-year-old girls like to do? No, really, I'm asking. Because I'm pretty sure my stepdaughter is not your typical 12-year-old girl. For the most part, she's not the one who wants to go for a mani-pedi and get her hair styled and make-up done. She doesn't want to shop for clothes or shoes. She'd probably go along with me if I made an appointment, but she'd probably rather play laser tag or go somewhere where she can catch tadpoles and get dirty. She's a bit of a tomboy, but she is still definitely all girl.    Marc and I have been trying to do a better job at giving each of our four children individual attention by spending special time with them. Life gets so busy that it's easy, especially with four children, to just lump...

Happy New Warren Theater!

Happy New Warren Theater!

How do you celebrate New Year's Eve with kids? Well, in the David house, you take them all to the brand spanking new Warren Theater in Broken Arrow!     People. People, people, people. We live on the northeast corner of 121st and Elm in Broken Arrow, and have been watching this theater be built every single day for a while now. We've been chomping at the bit, scouring the internet for information and waiting with baited breath for the opening of the largest movie theater in the United States, and let me tell you - it was worth the wait.   Warning, if you're trying to see a movie in one of the Screening Rooms, make sure and purchase your tickets ahead of time. We showed up 15 minutes before the movie we wanted to see, and it...

Would You Say I Have a Plethora of Pinatas?

Would You Say I Have a Plethora of Pinatas?

El Guapo's Cantina has been a staple of Tulsa's Tex-Mex scene for some time now. The original Downtown location boasts a rooftop patio with a unique view of the Downtown Tulsa skyline. For those of us who don't live in Midtown or Downtown, news of a South Tulsa location is maracas to our ears!   First, let me just share that my memories of the 81st and Harvard location go way back to the days of Furr's Cafeteria. My grandparents lived in the neighborhood on the southwest corner of 81st and Harvard and we probably went to dinner at Furr's at least 2-3 times per week. I have fond memories of fried chicken, broccoli and cheese sauce and saltine crackers.   But this, my friends, is. not. Furr's. This is El Guapo's Southside.  ...
