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 →
My first attempt at blogging began around this time last year when I signed up and started training for the Tulsa Run. The Tulsa Run is the oldest and largest run in Oklahoma. After 35+ years 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.

So, with that said, I was unsure how I’d feel about the show Stomp! Thanks to my friends at Celebrity Attractions, Continue reading →

The old “me” would have just hopped in my car. Starved for time and with way too much on my plate, I would have chosen the quickest, easiest option. The mission was pretty simple, I just needed to drop something off at a store that’s pretty much right around the corner from home. Total drive time about five minutes there and back… maybe three, if I caught the light.
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 →
