Tourist on the Town: Oklahoma City, OK

6 Sep

When wagons first rolled in to Oklahoma City, there’s no way anyone could’ve imagined how this city that sprang up in a day would become a sprawling oasis in fly-over territory. It’s a laid-back life with oh-so-many things to see, do…and eat! So get your glam on and discover the hidden gem that is OKC.

Bites

Vast

Dine in world-class style 726.2 feet above the ground. Vast is a feast for both the palate and the eyes, nestled in the clouds at the top of the new Devon Tower downtown. Make your reservations in time to catch the glorious Oklahoma sunset while you enjoy modern cocktails and exceptional American cuisine.

Good-bye 2013

7 Jan

There have been many miles on my Oklahoma road, and much to share!  Though it’s been a challenge to find time to blog this year, it has much to do with how the year brought about so many exciting things for me…since my last post.

In April, I accepted a part-time social media management job for a wonderful, small, local Oklahoma business.  Every part of how it happened and what I get to do is a blessing.  It has greatly impacted my outlook — it’s shown me a new view of what I am capable of and what is possible out there in this wonderful www.  It’s given me encouragement and opened a new door.  And it has brought me new friends.  Most likely I won’t be sharing it here with you, but if you happen to be looking for a freelance social media specialist, please feel free to email me.

It took me months to complete a blog post on the tornadoes that descended on Oklahoma City in late May/early June. Continue reading

California Adventure 2012

6 Jul

It’s that time of year again — time to reconnect with my Act One family at our annual reunion.  This year — gulp — flights with Southwest tripled in price, so the length of my stay in LA was hijacked by the airlines.  Lucky for me I got to stay almost a week this time.  But it also meant my Act One friends had to put up with me longer this time.

I was blessed, blessed I tell you, to fly non-stop into LAX…and even more blessed to have a friend who was willing to make the drive down there to pick me up!  Miss Susie saved the day again — I arrived at LAX around 10pm on Wednesday night, and there she was at baggage claim with one question on her lips: “So what should we do first?  The Sprinkles ATM or the beach?  Or both?”  Well, both, silly.

Takin’ a mini-vaca

11 Oct

Is it wrong to wish you were always on vacation?  Party of one, sipping something cold on a cabin porch swing overlooking the lazy lake.  Yes, please. Continue reading

L.A. or bust

14 Aug

I can’t tell you how excited I was to rejoin my Act One family for a short reunion this summer.  It was a sunny Thursday when I flew out, but by the time I got in the air, there were some serious storm clouds gathering between me and my destination.  After a mechanical delay in Phoenix (on the same plane I’d already flown the distance from OKC on), I finally arrived in San Diego.

No typo.  I flew to San Diego to get to L.A.  That’s just how I roll. Continue reading

Four weddings & a funeral

29 Oct

No, not a movie review.  It’s just that my life is so much like a movie sometimes it’s scary.  You already know that I don’t do weddings, unless they’re pretty darn important.  Fortunately, most of my friends are already married, so it’s not normally an issue.  But coming out of the summer I faced three weddings in one month.  There seems to be an epidemic of love and happiness or something.
