Upscale Grub Right Under My Nose!


Upscale Grub Right Under My Nose!

My husband and I love brunch. In fact, the last time I blogged about Sunday Brunch I started it out with the exact same phrase, AND we were brunching with the same couple. Our dear friends, Mark and Dawn seem to have become our brunch friends. Whether we're cooking at the house or going out, they are the perfect brunch buddies.  Recently, I have discovered there is an amazing restaurant right under my nose on Main Street in Broken Arrow. Main Street Tavern is in the heart of The Rose District and though it isn't all that new, it's new to me. I met a friend there for lunch recently, and since then I've been back several times. It's officially the first place I think of when I don't want to cook or want to meet a friend for a drink. Labeled "An...

Kid-friendly Contemporary Art


Kid-friendly Contemporary Art

I know what you're thinking when you hear the words contemporary art. You're thinking of abstract performance art and that play with the monologues about that body part we don't speak about in public (let alone in front of our children). I mean, give me some Jackson Pollock any day, but if you're not a connoisseur of art, it's sometimes difficult to differentiate between our kids' finger painting and true art. I am a very artsy person, but there can be things so contemporary and abstract that I just don't get it. Let's be honest too; sometimes contemporary art can have very adult themes and is not appropriate for our little people.  108 Contemporary's current exhibition, Beauty Unseen is refreshingly accessible for the the everyday non art...

Real Live Date Night


Real Live Date Night

    #1 - When you are a busy old married lady with four kids, it's easy to forget to have dates with your husband.  #2 - When you are a busy old married lady with four kids, and you FINALLY remember to have a date with your husband, it's easy to go to the same old places you always go and do the same old stuff. #3 - When you are a busy old married lady with four kids, and you FINALLY remember to have a date with your husband and you also make a point to try some place new, it's worth blogging about! Last night, Marc and I had our pseudo Valentine's date. The last two Valentine's Days I've been at the hospital with a doula client, and my husband isn't usually particularly interested in fighting the crowds at fancy restaurants...

My Kids Skipped School and I'm Not Sorry


My Kids Skipped School and I'm Not Sorry

I really try to do the right thing as a parent. I'm an information junkie and I've been known to research things to death. I can sometimes talk myself and others (especially my husband) silly questioning and asking advice. Although I'm a questioner and a bit of a rebel sometimes, I do tend to rely on the advice of experts. That is, until the advice of experts seems to go against my better judgement or common sense. I'm a firm believer that each of us gets to make the final call on parenting and we shouldn't have to answer to anyone else about decisions we alone have to live with. So, on the morning in question when the view out my front door looked like this: I decided my kids weren't going to school. Judging from a lifetime of living in...

Tony Bennett Made Me Cry


Tony Bennett Made Me Cry

I didn't know I was going to cry all night. I just thought I was going to a lovely concert with my cute husband. I had no idea what I was in for.  Last Fall, my husband Marc had the opportunity to see one of his all time favorite artists. This wasn't just any artist; it was Tony Bennett. Not only did he get to see him perform from the best seats in the house, he was also given back stage passes to MEET Tony Bennett. Don't believe me? Yep, there he is, right there next to the legend himself. That's my cute husband, Marc on the left, Mr. Bennett, and our friend Clayton on the right.  At the time I didn't feel too terrible missing the concert. I was glad to let Marc go with his friend and experience something that was so important to him. I...
