A Very Hamilton Day

A Very Hamilton Day

THE DAY FINALLY ARRIVED: HAMILTON IN TULSA!!!!

We have had our tickets for a year and we were READY. We saw the original cast in New York back in 2016 (yes, be jealous. It was as amazing as it sounds!) but we were dying to see it again.

And this time, I was taking Tyler with us to see what all the hype was about.

I planned out a whole day of fun for us…starting with the end (just like the musical!) We had a duel!

We went to the Angry Axe in Tulsa for some axe throwing. It was so fun! And thankfully, it was easier than I was afraid it would be. ha! Both mom and I caught on quickly (I wasn’t worried about Tyler…he picks up on EVERYTHING quickly).

Our nice coach took a pic of all of us with the board I drew on. We did use another board to keep score and it will surprise no one that Tyler beat me and mom both at all the score keeping methods. ha!

For lunch, we tried a new to us place, Sisserou’s. It’s Caribbean food (since Alexander comes from the Caribbean). I got this AMAZING tuna salad and it was SO stinking good. I also got a (not pictured) coconut creme brulee that dreams were made of.

We had to split up for the show since we added an extra ticket after our subscription, so mom was kind enough to sit alone so we could sit together. Tyler was surprised at how much he enjoyed it (I wasn’t. It’s amazing).

After the show, we had to walk to Glacier for dinner, I mean chocolates. ha!  Then we did a little shopping around Tulsa (a kid’s consignment shop, Trader Joe’s) and headed home!

Fiddler and Friends

Fiddler and Friends

When we got back from Branson, we had a super fun weekend.

It started with me and mom turning around and hitting the road on Saturday morning to Tulsa.

We had tickets to see Fiddler on the Roof in Tulsa, and Nancy was gracious enough to keep Remi all day so we could go enjoy ourselves before the show.

We had coupons for my birthday to Anthropologie and Kendra Scott, so we got some great deals.

And of course, we got a couple chocolates from Glacier. They are just so good.

We decided to theme our lunch with Fiddler on the Roof and hit up a Jewish deli. It was more gourmet than traditional, but still really good. One awesome feature was this AMAZING pickle platter that had everything on it- peaches, blueberries, rhubarb, eggs, beets, asparagus, oranges, mushrooms, fennel, carrots….it was all so good.

Other than the movie, we’ve never seen Fiddler….and it was WONDERFUL. We loved it!

On Sunday, after Remi took a LONG nap (amen!) we went to our friend’s house for a shrimp boil.  The food was good, but the company was even better.

I’m SO BLESSED by these ladies. I love that our husbands can get along and be friends. I love that our kids play together. But mostly, I love how they listen, point me to Jesus and just get me.

And it doesn’t hurt that we laugh so much, too.

Here’s the update of the week before Easter! (Yes, I’m a little behind on posting….it’s fine).

Remi girl wore this SWEET dress to church on Palm Sunday. I LOVED it. I may or may not have purchased it like a year ago, and then forgot about it. I’m glad she can wear it now.

The Monday after our big potluck, she couldn’t hang on the way to school. She asked for the balloon from Amelia’s birthday and then passed out. She usually doesn’t sleep on the way in, but that particular Monday, she couldn’t hang.

Mom and I went to Fayetteville to see Waitress! We originally had tickets for Tulsa, but they are for Easter weekend, so we sold those and bought ones in Fay.  We had a fun evening- shopping, dinner at the new Cheers at the OPO (VERY good if you’re local!), and then the show.  I saw Waitress when it was in Broadway previews, but this production was as good as the original cast.

Remi got to dye Easter eggs at school! She was pretty excited about it!

And then they had a big Easter egg hunt and party! I don’t have any pictures from her hunt, but she talked ALL about finding the eggs and putting them in her basket. And our school does an amazing job of taking pictures of the kids for each holiday.

So many fun things! And we have a VERY exciting Easter weekend planned!


Momma Got to Have Some Fun

Momma Got to Have Some Fun

I’ve had some evenings where I’ve had some fun lately- which are WONDERFUL.

I’m thankful for my people understanding that I need to fill my cup as well.

The first fun was a night in Fayetteville to see A Bronx Tale musical.

We had dinner at Mockingbird Kitchen- which was SO good!  And the best part was it was “Tini Tuesday” so we got some of their fun martinis!

A Bronx Tale was good…a little too much going on (mob story, love story, racism story, etc.) but it was entertaining and the cast was great.

The second fun happened while Tyler and Remi were at Daddy Date Night.  I got to meet up with Brandy for dinner!  We usually meet for lunch dates, so it was nice to meet and not have a lunch time clock ticking. I’m so thankful for this friend! img_8383.jpg

The next fun day came on the weekend when Mom and I went to Tulsa for the day.  We started at the Woody Guthrie Museum to learn about the folk singer (he wrote This Land is Your Land). Very interesting to learn about Oklahoma in the early 1900s and what inspired Woody to write so much.

We initially went for the Leonard Bernstein 100 exhibit. He’s a great American composer and conductor- and the Woody Guthrie museum held part of it.  Really neat to see the life and times of this very talented man!

There other half of the exhibit was at the Sherwin Miller Museum of Jewish Art. This was mostly about his religion and West Side Story! We got to go into a “recording studio” and sing part of “America” from West Side Story! So fun, until we realized you could hear us outside the “studio!” ha!

We also got to see the desk where he wrote the musical and notes with the original score an lyrics. Just neat parts of musical history!

And they had a fun Jews Rock! Exhibit with guitars decorating for famous Jewish rock stars!

We grabbed a quick lunch at Torchy’s! We love it and usually go in Dallas, and the Tulsa location is pretty new. We were excited to try it out!  We split that chicken and waffle taco- yum!

After lunch, we saw The Play That Goes Wrong. OMG it was SO funny! If it comes near you, you HAVE to see it!

Then we did some shopping and ate dinner at Smoke before heading home. It was a great day!
