Sharing the Magic of My Childhood

This Summer, we have been making a point to share with our kids the movies we grew up on. It's been so fun to see their reaction to movies like these:           These are all movies we've watched as a family this Summer and it's been a lot of fun. Movies still on the list are:   The Princess Bride The Three Amigos The Karate Kid Ghostbusters Labyrinth And most recently, I got to share the magic of Back to the Future with my littles and one of their friends at Guthrie Green's Movies in the Park. Of course, when you go to Guthrie Green, it's always way more fun than you expected and quite the adventure.   When we...

#CoUFest is Good for Tulsa

#CoUFest is Good for Tulsa

It's time! Today marks the first day of the second ever Center of the Universe Festival in Tulsa. But if you're talking about it on social media, be sure to join the cool kids table and use the hashtag #COUFEST. C'mon, you know you want to go tweet about it!   We went to #CoUFest 2013 and had a BLAST. I love the CoU Festival for the music, but you know what I love even more? I love how amazing it is for the City of Tulsa, my hometown. There's a lot of talk on blogs and social media about community and how building community is good for families and economy and education and so many other things. Great communities have great events like this! Think of Austin, Texas and Austin City Limits Music Festival. A festival this size...

I Scream, You Scream...

I Scream, You Scream...

We all scream for ice cream, don't we? Did you know there's an exciting new way to experience ice cream right here near Tulsa?   Texas based Blue Bell Creameries has one of their factories located in Broken Arrow at 8201 E. Hwy 51, and they offer tours of the facility Monday through Friday from 9am - 2pm. Recently I got my crew and a few friends together and scheduled an appointment for a tour.    We donned our complimentary Blue Bell hats and started getting excited!   There's a little brick building where you check in, pay, get your hat and wait for the rest of the attendees, then you follow the sidewalk to the side of the building over to the actual creamery!  The tour guide began by...

Big Splash: Just as Much Fun as You Remember

Big Splash: Just as Much Fun as You Remember

Until recently, I hadn't been to Big Splash since at least middle or high school. I know you guys think I'm only 25, but trust me, it's been a while!   Surprisingly enough, I've never taken my kids either! When they were little, they wouldn't have known the difference between a kiddie pool and the ocean and over the last couple of years it's just worked out that it was easier to go to a neighborhood pool, and cheaper. But this year, I found out about an incredible deal to get very affordable season passes for the whole family!   The Church at Battlecreek has some amazing Summer deals available, one of which includes several Big Splash savings options:   Family Passes for Four: $120...

Cruisin' the Mother Road

Cruisin' the Mother Road

Something I've been wanting to do for a while now is take my kids on a legitimate Rt. 66 road trip. Oklahoma has the longest stretch of the historic "Mother Road" in the United States, which makes it quite convenient that we live here in Tulsa!   We've visited several landmarks like the Blue Whale, and Totem Pole Park, but have never just gotten in the car and started driving. Last week, after picking up my littles from a two and a half week stay with their dad (my heart broke a million times) I decided to get off the turnpike and cruise Rt. 66.   Since we meet at McDonald's in Stroud for exchanges, we started with some good old McD's breakfast (shhh, don't tell the real food police) and some silly selfies.  ...
