I told myself that I wasn’t going to do this, that the world had enough “dear high school graduate” blog posts. That may still be true, but I had it on my heart tonight to say a few things to 2017 graduates. Bonus points if you are a Har-Ber Wildcat. This time last year was genuinely … More dear high school graduate..
You know when you ask for a specific gift for your birthday or Christmas, but you never really expect to receive it? I think that is what Rozlyn thought about her birthday request for this year. She asked for a personalized, painted jean jacket with “some stars on it”. Last night we surprised her with just … More Jean Jacket Gals
This week Mrs. Cockrell and I each wrote guest posts for each other’s blogs, and I am so excited about her topic! Mrs. Cockrell was my student council sponsor at Har-Ber (most of you know her), and she is one of the coolest, most supportive people ever. Check out her post below and follow her … More Where Should You Find Your Confidence?
Here’s the deal, this post is probably going to be a complete hot mess because I have SO MANY thoughts on this movie. Think of this as a journal entry or a stream of consciousness. I’m really writing this more for myself than anything, but I hope you enjoy this halfway analysis of Beauty and … More Beauty and the Beast
I have been blessed to visit several beautiful and special places over the past few years. From once-in-a-lifetime memories in England and Scotland with my dad, to visiting Paris, the city of my childhood dreams, with some of my favorite people, they are all close to my heart. Trips like those are ones that you never … More Music Memory
There are few things as close to my heart as Miss HBHS. My junior year I decided to push myself by competing. I was in EAST, and really wanted an excuse to wear a dress. Sue me. It wasn’t natural or comfortable, but it changed my life. I made friendships, learned to encourage others (even … More Miss HBHS
At this point I think we can all tell that I love a good craft. I mean, I think I’m mentally 60 years old, so it honestly makes sense. Crafts are great because you can use it as a time for fellowship or to wind down and, my goodness, are there endless options. Pom-Poms are … More Pom-Pom Accessories
We live in a world with a whole lot of opinions and not quite enough empathy. The things going on in our country, both politically and socially, have made it increasingly hard to look at people without first seeing their political stances. This is not a time for us to all agree to disagree and … More Love First
I found the cutest half-off puzzle at Barnes & Noble a couple weeks ago and decided to frame it. I brought it home to Cassidy (who loves puzzles) thinking that it would take her a couple days. It didn’t. The chick can put a 150 piece puzzle together in under half an hour! I had that … More DIY Framed Puzzle
I think it sometimes escapes me how many apps there are. I get caught up in all the social media on my phone, and I forget all the other tools available to us. I’ve put together a few of the apps that I been loving, and I think there is something in here for everyone: … More Must-Have Apps
Everyone loves fun day trips with their pals, but all to often I find myself stuck in a rut of doing the same old things. This time around we researched and found some really cool (and yummy) places that I swear you will all DIE FOR. Start planning your next Tulsa trip with your people … More A Day In Tulsa
Hey guys and gals, I know its been a while, BUT tonight I have the easiest and most fun DIY for you. When you’re done you will have a notebook, agenda, or journal that you will love and want to Instagram immediately. Basically, I’ll find cheap notebooks (or, in this case, agendas) that are plain, or … More Let Your Artistic Side Shine
