Calling All Tulsa Parents: JBF Sale Opens

Just Between Friends Sale

Tomorrow, I am sooo gonna score.

I'm gonna score some little-boy gear, that is. Rather than have to traverse the known world for garage sales in hopes of finding affordable, quality clothes, furniture and toys for my toddler, I can head to the Exchange Center Building at Expo Square for the spring Just Between Friends sale. Seven days of the bail out for which Tulsa-area mommy and daddy types have been waiting opens Feb. 28 and runs to March 6.

Behind the Scenes at KJRH Channel 2 with

I get a lot of questions about how I like being on TV and radio. Rather than tell you, I'll just show you.

2009 Okie Blog Award Winners Announced

Me, Downtown

Below are the highlights for the Tulsa side of the Turnpike on the big news at the Oklahoma Blog Awards Web site.

Congrats to all the winners, runners-up and nominees. Blogging is so important these days to how people learn about Oklahoma and what we can learn about ourselves. To anyone out there thinking that blogging sounds like fun, I say this: Do it. It's hard work (more than a lot of folks think, but that's true about darn near everything, isn't it?) and it's demanding of one's time, but it's worth it.

So worth it.

How to Do Fat Tuesday in Tulsa

There's no better place in Tulsa to do your Fat Tuesday thing tonight than the Blue Dome District this year. Thanks to the Blue Dome Merchants Association's inaugural Mardi Gras parade and the parties going on at the individual Blue Dome restaurants and venues, it'll be like having Bourbon Street in your own backyard.

Our Golden Driller

Golden Driller

Every Tulsan has photos like these stashed somewhere in their photo albums or digital files. Why? Because this here is the Golden Driller, and he's one of our top tourist attractions here in T-Town.

Merritt's Winners!

Valentine's Day at Merritt's Bakery

Two people's lives are about to get sweeter.

For a Valentine Time, Meet Me at Merritt's Bakery

Valentine's Day at Merritt's Bakery

Finally, I caved. After drooling over the Twitter feed of Merritt's Bakery all week long, I finally gave in and took my son to the Midtown location of Merritt's Bakery, at 15th and Harvard. There's only so many photos of sugary, frosted goodness a mortal girl can take, especially this close to Valentine's Day.

The Princess Has Arrived

Sleeping Beauty

Perhaps you're watching this blog, waiting with bated breath on the announcement of who won the pair of tickets to a Friday or Saturday production of the latest from Tulsa Ballet, The Sleeping Beauty.

Are you ready? Sure? Positive?

Okay. Here we go.

I AM That Sleeping Beauty

I've always been a fan of name changes.

During those days when I had even more Barbies than curls (yes, that's where he gets it), I informed all the members of my family that I would thence answer only to the name Barbie. For awhile, I was Ariel of The Little Mermaid. Then, Belle of Beauty and the Beast.

Before all of that, though, I was Sleeping Beauty.

That's why I'm so excited about the most recent production from Tulsa Ballet. This fairy tale, the Disney version and others included, is my favorite of all them all.

The Sleeping Beauty is going to be an especially exciting ballet for several reasons. First, it's known as one of the most technically challenging ballets there are. Second, it'll be accompanied by the Tulsa Symphony Orchestra, officially the hippest, coolest orchestra ever, playing Tchaikovski. Third, the hunky Marcello Angelini once again brings his expertise as artistic director, using grand staging and sets and lavish costumes in his characteristically fabulous way.

Fourth, someone's gonna propose right out in front of God and everybody. As in, some nice young person has paid good money to climb on stage, hit one knee and ask for that special someone's hand in marriage. Judging by the popularity of shows like The Bachelor and The Bachelorette, I know you'd practically kill to see a dramatic marriage proposal in the Chapman Hall of the Tulsa Performing Arts Center. That's worth the ticket price on its own, really.

No matter how you dice it, whether you love dance or you're just looking for a good, prime time-worthy show, The Sleeping Beauty promises to deliver.

All of this is sounding pretty good, right? You're about to head to the Tulsa Performing Arts Center Web site to buy scads of tickets, right? Before you do, let's see if you can tell me one thing.

Do you feel lucky?

One TDT reader is about to win two tickets to the Friday or Saturday night production of The Sleeping Beauty. To be eligible, there's just one thing you have to do.

Head to the comments and tell me the fairy tale name you secretly desire was yours. Guys, you know you wish you parents had named you He-Man or Optimus Prime. Ladies, we've all wanted to be Aurora or Ariel or Jasmine. Or, maybe you invented your own fairy tale name and you only answer to it when disturbed from a very deep sleep. Now, just days before the most romantic day of the year, is the time to come clean.

This contest will run until Thursday, Feb. 11, at 4pm. I'll announce the winner before 5pm.

Good luck, everyone. And please, at least for Valentine's Day, call me Barbie.

A Morning From H-E-Double Hockey Sticks

I couldn't do anything but stare at the receptionist, my mouth agape.

Ladies and gents, this morning was one of those mornings. At its end I was standing at the window of what I like to call my lady doctor's office. Through the tiny public access opening she was telling me that, one, my 9am appointment had been moved to 2pm; two, their office called me yesterday to inform me of this change; and three, my husband had called their office with a message for me that I'd driven off with the car seat and that I was about to make him late for a huge exam at school.

Yeah. Like I said, one of those mornings.

Did my morning end in a fiery explosion of repressed fury? Find out on my blog at

Oklahoma Blog Awards Final Ballot = UP. Plus, a Recap.

Tulsa Bloggers Meetup

Hey, Tulsa bloggers. Did you know the final ballot for the 2009 Oklahoma Blog Awards has been posted? It's true.

Oklahoma Jazz Hall of Fame. And some personal history.

OK Jazz Hall of Fame

I went to a concert at the Oklahoma Jazz Hall of Fame last weekend and one thing's for sure: I'll be back. Soon. Very, very soon.

Oh, Taquito

After the segment on Channel 2 yesterday and after I headed back out into the snow that was falling yesterday morning, I was on the prowl for lunch.

Tulsa Valentine's Day Round-Up

Skate Date 2009

Here it is, folks - the list of love you've been longing for. Here's what to do in Tulsa for Valentine's Day, Valentine's Day weekend and beyond.

Parting Ways with Paci


I haven't been completely forthcoming with you, my dear readers. You see, when my son and I went to the dentist a few weeks ago, we got some news that, at the time, I elected not to share with you. It's shocking information, yes, and while I didn't think at the time that I should break the news (I did, after all, have to inform friends and family first), I think the time has come for me to come clean. To be honest. To bear the naked truth.

Get all the horrid, life-changing details from my blog at

Tulsa Blogger Meetup: Let's Sweeten This Deal.

Almost 40 of my fellow Tulsa-area bloggers have agreed to show up at Joe Momma's this Thursday evening for the first Tulsa blogger meetup in many a moon.

Extreme Makeover in Tulsa: No, Really. It's XTREME.

In case you managed to not turn on the TV or radio during Ice Storm 2010, you might have missed that Tulsa is playing host to the crew of ABC's Extreme Makeover: Home Edition. Thanks to the show and its local partners, including Simmons Homes of Owasso, the Starkweather family of 1124 S. Indianapolis Ave. in Tulsa, Oklahoma, will soon have a new place to call home.
