Raspberry picking is one of my favorite childhood summer memories. Our friends, The Golden’s, had their very own raspberry bushes (which was rare where I grew up), and I vividly remember play dates with their daughter Amy. We’d play in her sandbox, run through the sprinkler in our bathing suits and then pick raspberries. It never seemed to fail that more raspberries went in our tummies than in the basket where we were supposed to put them.
Those were sweet times….
Those happy summer memories are on my mind this morning as I pull up to Thunderbird Berry Farm. The “pick your own berry” farm is Continue reading →
Ahhhh…Vacation. Who doesn’t love a break from the ordinary?
As spring break winds down, many of our friends are coming back from amazing trips all over the country and the world. Our travels weren’t nearly as fancy, but we did find time to get out of the house and explore…
It seems that we’re always in a rush to go somewhere… do something… be productive.

We took care of our chores on Saturday. We went to church earlier this morning. We know there is some heavy rain in the forecast for the week ahead. We’re well fed, well watered, and well— Continue reading →

So, with that said, I was unsure how I’d feel about the show Stomp! Thanks to my friends at Celebrity Attractions, Continue reading →
It would have been easy to stay in bed Monday morning. The bed was warm. Peeking out the window, a fresh coating of snow covered the grass (our first “real” winter snow this season with over an inch!) and the damp, grey skies were anything but welcoming.
Up until this weekend, the closest I’ve ever come to a “Roller Girl” would include my excessive use of hot rollers. Yes, it’s safe to say I’ve been a “Hot Roller Girl” for a good part of my life. This weekend the hot rollers went on hiatus and my husband and I rolled on over to watch our local roller derby league season opener. Continue reading →
It’s been months since we’ve had a really good soaking rain in Tulsa. Sure, this January’s sunshine and mild weather is welcome by many especially when you compare it to last year’s record winter, but I think we all agree that a little rain is a good thing. I was glad to see the rain last night and this morning. My backyard pansies sure seem happy, too.
We’ve had several storm systems blow through over the past several weeks, but we just haven’t been able to squeeze out enough moisture to get a really good rain in Tulsa. Perhaps what we really needed Continue reading →
