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.  ...

My Kids Killed My Inner Scrooge


My Kids Killed My Inner Scrooge

Listen, people. Christmas is a lot of work. The decorating, the collecting the Christmas listing, the cooking, the Elfing. Except, Lord help me, I do NOT do Elf on the Shelf. God bless all you parents who have enough time for home made Star Wars Cakes, Pinterest Perfect Birthday parties and the blasted Elf on the Shelf. I'm with Scary Mommy, when I vow that Elf on the Shelf ain't happenin' in my house.    Don't get me wrong; I love me some holiday cheer and Christmas music, but I'm also doing everything I can to keep up with my job, my health, four little people's homework, extracurricular activities (Wrestling THREE nights a week? Are you KIDDING me?), and keeping them all ALIVE for goodness sake. Oh, and my husband. Yeah, he's in there...

Lights, Music, Christmas!


Lights, Music, Christmas!

When people were putting up Christmas decorations BEFORE Halloween, I had a little trouble with it, but now that Thanksgiving's come and gone, I'm ready for the lights and action.   Sunday night, Downtown Tulsa was alight with holiday sparkle and sounds. The Glow Downtown activities included Glow on the Green at Guthrie Green, S'mores on Boston in the Deco District and the lighting of Oklahoma's largest Christmas tree at Arvest Winterfest.   We bundled up to start the festivities at Guthrie Green and it was COLD!     But Santa was there for pictures, so we made sure to say hi.     Alec took time to tell him what he wanted for Christmas. This kid's my baby, so I...

A True Tulsa Thanksgiving Tradition


A True Tulsa Thanksgiving Tradition

In my house growing up, Thanksgiving was pretty simple. We would wake up that morning, and have a big breakfast while we watched the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade and my mother prepared the dishes she would bring to my grandmother's house that afternoon. Don't ask me why we would eat such a big breakfast before a big feast, but we did! Thanksgiving this year was lovely, and I did exactly what I love to do: lazily sip coffee and work on my homemade stuffing I'll take to my mothers while watching the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. I always cry when the Rockettes come on! Then we had a lovely meal at my mother's house with the rest of the family. Sorry, no pictures - I actually left my phone at home since I was not on-call for a doula client, and it...
