Weekend in Tulsa (November 5-7)

I was in Tulsa with my sister and Mom over the weekend for Mollie's wedding to Ben. It was a great "girls weekend". I arrived on Friday and we immediately went to a shopping mall to deck out Mom with new duds. We then progressed to a three bottle of wine lunch with Aunt Lynn, Uncle David and Laura followed by more shopping.

Since it was a 4:00pm wedding, there was a fast change in the hotel and then off to the wedding (which was beautiful) and the reception (which was fun). Uncle David had my mom laughing so hard she was crying for most of the receptions and Katie made us cry with her toast.

Saturday we had a busy day. We started by touring the Gilcrease Museum, which is a museum of western history. Lots of American and Native American art. We had a private docent who walked around the museum with is and was very informative.

After lunch at Sonoma Bistro and Wine Bar, we headed back to the hotel where Mom and Liz napped and I ran on the dreadmill for an hour (and then napped). We ended our Tulsa food tour with a fabulous dinner at French Hen. Fabulous food.

To our great surprise, there was a gathering of people in the hospitality room when we returned to the hotel. A game of Mexican Train dominoes broke out and was VERY competitive. I think I came in third.....and was exhausted by the time we went to bed. Thank God for daylight savings and the extra hour the next morning!
