Bites of My Life

Three days people, only three days left until I'm free! With break peeking around the corner, making my to-do list for summer is easily becoming more important than studying for my finals (oops!). Anyway I can't wait to lay by the pool, spend weekends at the lake, work on DIY and baking projects and just hang out with friends. 
Don't worry mom and dad finals are still my main priority, but I did manage to have a little fun the past week! Thunder watch parties, 21st birthday celebrations, a wedding and some studying poolside filled my days.

I Love You OKC

Two of my favorite things are happening in Oklahoma City this week. The Festival of the Arts (aka the Arts Festival) and NBA playoffs.

I can't claim myself to be a resident of Oklahoma City, but with it sandwiched between the two towns I do live in, I feel like I live there sometimes. Oklahoma City has grown into so much in the recent years, so today I want to praise one of my favorite cites and two of my favorite events going on.

First is the Arts Festival. Every year the Arts Council puts on the festival running Tuesday to Sunday. It takes over streets downtown and the newly revamped Myriad Gardens. Artists from all over set up booths, and restaurants around town provide amazing food. Its called the "Festival of the Arts," but in my book it's the Festival of the Food. Yes, the art is nice to look at, but I'm really just there for the food. I mean with Indian tacos, chocolate dipped cheesecake and Strawberries Newport to eat, I get a little distracted from the Art. I've gone every year with my family and this year I actually am volunteering. If you will be at the festival tonight, come find me at the balloon booth!

Second is the NBA playoffs. I think almost everyone can attribute the change we've seen in Oklahoma City to the arrival of the Thunder. They have added so much life the city. Playoffs started Sunday night and our next game is Wednesday. Fingers crossed I get to go to a game! (Daddy?)
