A little place called...

"What the hell are we doing here, Harry? We gotta get outta this town!"
"Oh yeah, and go where? Where are we gonna go?"
"I'll tell you where. Someplace warm. A place where the beer flows like wine. Where beautiful women instinctively flock like the salmon of Capistrano. I'm talking about a little place called... Aspen."

For those of you that do not know the genius that is Dumb & Dumber. Shame on you. Though I guess for this one occasion, I'll give you a pass. (Insert gratitude/walking to the front door, putting shoes on, and driving to your nearest family video) You see, the basic premise of the movie involves two best friends going on a somewhat unfortunate road trip because they need to little break from their normal lives--well, there's a briefcase, too, a guy named Seabass, and a girl named Mary... Swan, Swanny.... Sampsonite! But that's another post altogether.

The purpose of me sharing this little fantastic clip of dialogue is not because that "D&D" is my favorite movie of all time (though it is, by far... no other movie can continue to make me laugh out loud even after I've seen it 1,349,209,402 times). Instead, I share this with you to intro into this week's coupon "blessing," which I happen to be knee deep in right now. 

"I.O.U..... a weekend getaway."

Which brings me to someplace quite cold (what's new?). A place where the milk flows into sippy cups like the Mississippi into the gulf. Where cupcake, mediterranean food, and good friends all meet.

It's a little place I like to call.... Tulsa. 

Sure, it's only a hop, skip, and a jump away from home, but it's the perfect place for us to experience a little bit of rest and rejuvenation before diving head first into the rest of our LAST semester of undergrad. (Praise the Lord!) Staying with some our good friends, Ashley, Jameson, and their sweet daughter Aniston--hence, the sippy cups and milk-- we are in the midst of enjoying a wonderful weekend getaway (we drove in last night). First stops this morning? Watching "Cool Story" a.k.a. Toy Story 3, while lounging in our PJs and eating cinnamon rolls. Then on to "Helen of Troy" which has quite possibly the best Mediterranean food I've had this side of the Atlantic.

More adventures await us... so ta ta for now. I've gotta focus my utmost attention on "Cool Story."

  1. Tulsa is one one of my favorite places in the world ; ) I hope you are enjoying your weekend away from home and I look forward to seeing you all in the morning! love your blog btw!

  2. I live in Tulsa! You should totally try out Shades of Brown! It's a stellar coffee shop at 33rd and Peoria. Brookside (Peoria)is pretty awesome in and of itself. But it sounds like you have been here before, so I'm sure you know of all the great spots. If you need some suggestions, hit me up! I'll be glad to tell you about some great spots!
