O•K•L•A•H•O•M•A

I love my home state of Texas but I bleed crimson and cream…I have always loved The University of Oklahoma.  By going to OU I followed in the footsteps of my Granddad (class of 1956) and Dad (class of 1978).  This is the place that my parents met and my Grandparents had their first years of marriage.  Here are some of the reasons why I love OU and my favorite things to do in Norman :)

1.    The campus is beautiful year round.  My favorite season is fall :)


2.    Best Lunch Place: Cafe Plaid.  The first place I had tortellini and haven't found another place to match it!


3.    Shopping on Campus Corner has such unique finds!  I love Antique Garden, Blush & Shoetopia!




4.    Shopping for furniture:  405 Imports


This is where I bought my favorite chair:


I really love damask...




5.    827 Flood Street.  Best house ever.



6.    Running Stadiums


7.    Football Games & Tailgating 

8.  Post Game food and swirls.  La Luna.



There are so many more things that make me miss Norman.  I think what I miss the most is having all my friends in one place (or maybe going to class 15 hours a week is better than a 40 hour work week...). Have a great week and BOOMER SOONER!

Grace, peace and be sure to enjoy some sweets!
