Rose Soirée

This event was an exquisite celebration of 624 Kitchen’s one year anniversary.   Endive and lobster salad was my favorite!   We appreciated this velvety Pinot Noir red that was mistakenly thrown in by the supplier, thinking it was a Pinot Noir Rose.  We are happy that she generously served it anyway.  I especially appreciate this…

Dragonmoon Tea Company

Another whimsical experience at Dragonmoon Tea Co. where I enjoyed a small pot of the creamy smooth Caramel Sugar Oolong   This gem of a tea house features some delectable creations to enjoy with a fine pot of tea.  For lunch I chose the tasty Tomato Parmesan Soup and the warm Gouda Apple Croissant with…

Passion Flower Magic

Is anyone else familiar with this amazing flower?! Ran into this huge vine on my run today, was such a lovely surprise I had to stop to catch some pics. Been obsessed since I discovered these back in 2006 in Monaco hidden along this magical stair path leading right down to the sea.

Entertaining Bottles and Brews

I decided to share a few unique beers that I enjoyed over the past couple months. The last two also happen to be in very high demand and are very difficult to find. Pay close attention the labels too. I especially enjoyed reading Heady Topper’s can: “Don’t be a d-bag. Recycle this can.” I got…

Crybaby Hill–Tulsa Tough Bike Race

Day one: Downtown Tulsa Day three: Crybaby Hill-Final Race/Ridiculous Party This guy just crashed his bike after some spectator woman’s water bottle strap? (or some sort of strap) caught his handle bar and wiped him out. Super woman came to his rescue. Look closely below at these home made signs our friends created. Their other…

Peter Cotton Trail

I see these guys about once a week now on my runs if I look hard in this certain little green clearing. They must have just blended in before now, because they’ve been out there consistently every since I spotted them a few weeks ago. I like to stop and watch them play for a…

Red-bud Valley Hike

This little hike was just outside of Tulsa near Catoosa, OK. More like Cacti Valley…this hike was too short and sweet. It was nicely located close to home but not even close to being a challenge. It did have some diverse scenery though with caves, a small lake, woods, and a cacti valley.

The first big snow day of the season in Tulsa

This post is dedicated to my brothers, because I know they’re missing Tulsa right about now. I guess I get to see snow here after all before the big move next month. This picture was taken outside of my apartment before work this morning. The snow kissed trees and buildings downtown make for a beautiful…

The Vault

This is a vintage restaurant I’ve been wanting to try for weeks now. It just opened in September down the road from where I moved to that very same month. I decided I really like it, because I feel like I’m in an episode of Mad Men:) Here is a good quote I just saw…

Runnin’ on a river

Today I tried out the Riverside running trail along the green banks of the Arkansas River in Tulsa, OK–5 miles of Tulsa beauty. Good birding, nice scene, just enough people for comfort, and not too far of a drive from my parent’s house. I liked it so much, I couldn’t quit running and also decided…
