Street Food, Festivals and More in Broken Arrow


Street Food, Festivals and More in Broken Arrow

Street festivals and food truck appearances seem to be popping up all over the place on a regular basis in Tulsa, and Broken Arrow is no stranger to them either!   In March, Broken Arrow based BA Buzz, hosted ShamROCK the Rose District, a full day festival complete with merchant vendors, food trucks and live music. More recently, BA Buzz was busy again and teamed up with More Broken Arrow to put on the Summer Solstice festival.   Historic Main Street was closed to thru traffic, but open to all the visitors out to enjoy the amazing weather on the longest day of Summer!    We hit up the Andolini's food truck for dinner. They had the longest line, but our bellies were craving that delicious pizza and we...

Summer Survival Secrets


Summer Survival Secrets

Okay Parents. It's that time again, and I'm not talking about Summer...at least not exactly.    I'm talking about that point that hits you about a week after Summer break begins when you're kids have said, "Hey mom" for about the 50 millionth time that day and it's only 9AM. I'm talking about that phrase that is akin to nails on a chalkboard, the dreaded, "I'm bored."   Well, before you start day drinking before the Today Show is over, let me give you my Summer Survival Secrets!   1. Invest in some good ole cheap yard toys, like frizbees,     sprinklers,         and yard bowling, horse shoes or criquet. For one,...

Wednesdays are awesome at Guthrie Green!


Wednesdays are awesome at Guthrie Green!

I love Summer in Tulsa and all the FREE things there are to do with your kids. If you keep your ears and eyes open (and read my blog) you'll never miss an opportunity to do something new and fun (and usually free) with your kiddos.    I am often writing and telling people about Guthrie Green. It truly is one of the most amazing additions to the Tulsa landscape, and next to the BOK Center probably the best thing to happen to our city in my 33 years of living here. Their tagline is "A Land for You and Me," and everything is always free there. Any concerts or events will always be offered for free.    This morning, we went to Story Time, hosted by Tulsa City-County Library. There was an amazing crowd!  ...

Free Summer Movies!


Free Summer Movies!

It's time for Summer fun and FREE stuff in Tulsa. There's plenty of time for sun and heat and splashing in the pools and splash pads around town, but let's get real: sometimes parents need an air-conditioned place to take their kids where they will be occupied while sitting down in one spot for an hour or more.    Enter the Free Summer Kids Film Festival at the Riverwalk Movies in Jenks!      This is brilliant because it happens Monday through Friday at 10AM ALL SUMMER LONG. We saw Despicable Me and I was probably the only one in the theater who hadn't seen it yet, so I was laughing louder than everyone else. Hey, when your kids see all the latest and greatest movies with their dad, you miss out! My friends...

Rockin' Out with Tulsa Symphony Orchestra


Rockin' Out with Tulsa Symphony Orchestra

Here's the dealio: in order to not miss out on all the cool stuff going on in Tulsa, you pretty much have to be willing to be spontaneous and do things last minute. This works for me since most of my life is totally scheduled and I keep my calendar perfectly pretty haphazard and chaotic anyway.    I mean, the life of a doula means being ready to drop everything at any moment to be with a woman in labor. There are plenty of times I look ahead at the calendar and see awesome activities at the library or museum, but then am unable to go because of client emergencies, or simply because the only time I can meet with my clients is on weekends or evenings.    So, I adapt. Like I did a couple of weeks ago when I found out...
