Snapshots from the Week
We swapped out our usual movie theater date for a trip to the Tulsa Ballet. Their second string performance TBII: On Your Radar was much more contemporary both in the music and choreography than the Tulsa Ballet shows we've seen at the Tulsa Performing Arts Center. I love them both and am definitely looking forward to the upcoming season.
It was a great experience, and besides, it gave me a reason to wear one of the anniversary present he gave me earlier this month.:)
Before the Ballet, we had lunch at The Brook Restaurant and Bar on Brookside. As my fiance would say, the atmosphere is just okay, but oh my word...they have the best fish and chips of the ones I've tasted in Tulsa so far. And I'm pretty picky about my fish and chips.
We took the kiddos to spend some time at Barnes & Noble, and in the process, I saw the new Fall fashion issues. Ken bought me the VOGUE September issue.:) I went ahead and glanced at all of the fall issues while we sat and had some lovely chill time.
The wine we tried this week was very good. Merlot tends to be a bit dry for me, but the Gallo Family Merlot turned out to be bold but fairly smooth, and I could really taste the fruity flavors, especially the plum.
Our midweek date included some movie time at home after a very yummy lunch at Brownies Gourmet Burgers and a walk at Utica Square. It was still a bit hot though. My fiance and I are very much looking forward to what I like to call make-out weather. You know...not too hot or too cold to enjoy a nice stroll in the park or somewhere like Utica Square where we can take little breaks to kiss. If you see some inappropriate PDA in Tulsa this Fall, it's probably us. Sorry, not sorry!
The hibiscus at Utica Square are blooming a lot lately. The Tulsa summers can be brutal, but Utica has done such a great job of planting things in a way that something beautiful is always in bloom. And can you believe that squirrel? That little guy sprawled out to enjoy the cool pavement while he munched on his snack haha.
Well, I am eagerly awaiting my love being home for the evening, so you guys have a fun and relaxing weekend!:)
