Oklahoma Bellas

Saturday was such a fun day meeting up with four other gals that are attending Silver Bella.

Luckily, one of the girls in our group is marketing person for Oklahoma Tourism and she planned our day in Oklahoma City. It was the first time I had met the two Oklahoma City girls. It was great fun, as we shared our creative ideas throughout the day and search for valuables for creating mixed media art and swaps.

An especially fun part of the day was discovering the hats in an antique store. We bought hats for Silver Bella Market Night. The title of the evening is "Hats on Parade". They suggest wearing vintage, funny, artistic, glamorous, whatever is your choice.

We had lunch at a newer resturant in downtown Oklahoma City, that was absolutely wonderful. Everyone of our dishes were to die for! Pachinko Parlow is located on 9th St. just north of the Bricktown area. Just next door is  Sara Sara Cupcakes. We didn't get to go, since we had ate so much, no one could eat another bite. Maybe next time. I have heard rave revues about it.

We are hoping to have another get together, and maybe some more of the Oklahoma gals attending Silver Bella can join us. Oh what fun.

Summer in Iowa

We just returned from Iowa for a vacation with my husband's family. It is always good to see all the family, see Iowa and enjoy some rest from work. A few days before we left...I bought a new car. I must say, it was not planned to do this before we left. I had been loving the looks of the new body style of the Cadillac SRX. The new sleek design made them a beautiful car and I already knew the ride was wonderful. After stopping by a local dealership to check the price of one on their lot, it only led to me going to other deals to see if the price was good. Next thing I know, I am in Norman buying one in the color of my choice with the features of my choice. I can was worth the wait to find just what I had been looking for the past several months. And like I always will know it when you see it. Obviously, I am a visual person. Enough about my new car. And talking visual take a look at the beautiful farm land in Iowa.
