Anyhow, for my Birthday a few days ago we went to a local pizza joint and then walked over to a well known local coffee shop called 'The Coffee House on Cherry Street' located on Cherry Street in Midtown Tulsa. It's a great little place, cozy and colorful. I like it. We've seen some friends play live shows here, brought friends over to play board games and things like that in the past. This time we grabbed some drinks and a slice a pie to celebrate my 28th birthday. I got an iced skinny caramel latte and Josh got a peach smoothie (he's not a coffee drinker). We also grabbed a piece of pie that I was only able to barely sample because Josh consumed it's delectable flakes so fast I barely saw it. It was an amazing piece of pie and I don't even like pie. ha. It was all so good. Inside they have areas to sit and plug in your laptop if needed along with a great little state and curved couch for musical goest viewing. they also have a lovely little porch outside. I love this little place and it's quirky front porch. I cannot go on with out mentioning the amazing mural on the side of the building. I will get an outfit photo in front of it some day.
I can't wait to share more local adventures with you guys. In fact, these next 12 days in our life are going to be full of traveling and crazies. Tomorrow morning is Penelope's first ballet recital and Josh's side of the family is coming in town to see it. (my family lives 8 hours away...little far to drive for a ballet recital and it's one of my brother's college graduation so they'll be in Virginia anyway). So their visit and the recital will keep us busy for the next two days. On Sunday I'm setting up shop at the Hanson Fan Festival here in Tulsa and I'm looking forward to that. Immediately following the show we are packing up our car and heading to Springfield Missouri for a few days for Josh's job and kind of an alumni type thing for the college we graduated from. In the middle of the week we are heading further down south to Houston Texas for my other brother's high school graduation and my other (the one graduating from college) brother's wedding shower. Jeez, that's a lot of 'other brothers' in one breath. So we'll be wandering around the country for the next week. Can't wait. Seriously. In the meantime I'll be checking out all our favorite hang outs in Springfield Missouri where we used to live before we moved to Tulsa and finding some new places in Houston. Houston is so huge...so many things to do.
I'll be blogging soon, maybe even today about my goals for the next year, kind of a 'birthday goal' type of post. I'll be blogging all through my travels as long as I have internet connection...I'm so looking forward to these next 12 days. It's going to be so fun and I've been looking forward to this time for months now. So let the fun and adventures begin...right about....now.
