Halloween Potluck

Halloween Potluck

We gathered our friends for a little Halloween potluck. We made easy snack foods for dinner and let the kids play- bouncy house, football, swing set.

And of course, we had to dress up!  We are the Paw Patrol (Skye, Marshall and Chase)


With Rubble and Rocky! (Caitlyn will join us for actual Halloween, too!)


The kids painted pumpkins….


And bobbed for apples (which isn’t as fun or easy as it was when I was a kid! ha!)


Remi’s masterpiece!


We wanted to do smores but didn’t want to make a big bonfire, so we had a food-safe roasting log on our grill (our fire pit got a hole in it). Staci was an expert marshmallow roaster for the kids.


We played until dark and ended the night with 4-wheeler rides around the yard. So much fun!

These are the Days

These are the Days

Just capturing some memories….

Remi LOVES books, and she’s quick to memorize them. She was reading me The Very Hungry Caterpillar one afternoon.


She was with my mom, and I stopped to work out after work. They met me there to make the pass back to momma, and Remi wanted to jump into my workout. She isn’t allowed on the mat, but we let her play on the side. I am proud to set an example for her! I hope she always wants to be strong like momma!


She was VERY PARTICULAR about her hair this day. Two little buns, one that I had to redo because it wasn’t little enough, and two sparkly bows that she picked out.


She takes dance at school, and I love the pictures and videos they send us. She doesn’t wear a leotard because Miss Independent won’t ask for potty help and has accidents trying to get them off herself…so she gets to wear these cute little tank tops. I sort of love it even more!


Not Remi-releated, but I bought and LOVE Overtone’s Rose Gold for Brown Hair coloring conditioner. It gives my hair this awesome pink hue.


Daddy has worked a ton of Friday nights at games, so we went and took him dinner to see him. Remi LOVES her daddy and she thinks his big school is really neat.


Our imaginative girl set up this sweet tea party with Buzz and her tiny baby doll. So cute.


I took my Wednesday night Bible study ladies to Tulsa to the Sherwin Miller Museum of Jewish Art. We’ve been studying Old Testament Feasts and they have exhibits on them.

We stopped at Jane’s for brunch first and mom got cinnamon rolls the size of her head! Ha!


But it was a beautiful day with these ladies learning more about our God and how He weaves everything together.


And to close this random long post….three different fall outfits from the past.

2018 and 2019.


And two shirts that have lasted us 3 years! 2017, 2018, and 2019!


Killer Queen

Killer Queen

Back in May, I gave mom tickets to see a Queen cover band, called Killer Queen, in Tulsa.

We had a GREAT time!

I treated her to a steak dinner at Phryme (which was SOOOOOO good) and then we hit the concert.


I also bought us Queen shirts. Mine said “We Will Rock You” but hers says “Some of us grew up listening to Queen.  The cool ones still do.”


The band was awesome and SO FUN. They came out in several iconic outfits and sang all the hits. We had a blast.


It was fun to treat mom to this night and spend it together!

Frozen Tea Party

Frozen Tea Party

The local children’s theater is doing Frozen Jr., and they hosted a fun tea party to meet the characters (and promote the performance).

We had a super fun momma-Remi day together at it.

She had spent the night at Mimi’s, so I came over early with her princess clothes, and she decided to dress as Elsa.


We got to the fun historic home and they had it set up SO cute for them, including fancy tea cups!


They served “blue tea” and cookies. And while they sipped and snacked, the cast came and sang songs from Frozen. The girls ATE IT UP.



We went through different stations where we took a dance class, met the cast for photos and played Frozen games.

Remi LOVED it.


She got to hug and meet everyone- Olaf, Elsa, Anna, Sven, Kristoff, and even The Duke of Weaselton. ha!


She cracked us up playing pin the nose on Olaf- peeking under the blindfold! ha!


She had a snowball fight!


And we had a ring toss on Kristoff’s head.


The dance class outside was fun. They learned a dance to “In Summer” and it was precious.


We, of course, had to buy tickets to the show later in November. Sure to be a good time!
