Florence, Italy.  I love Italy and my husband has never been.  We are dying to take a trip there together!

We go to Kindermusik on Saturday mornings and LOVE it.  We also love the zoo, and we can’t wait to check out the new splash pad in Edmond this summer!

We love to eat! Our favorite spots are Cheevers and Paseo Grill.  The quinoa salad at Cheevers is the dish I crave the most.  We also love going to Thunder games when we can!

Haha, what purse?! As for my diaper bag, I’d have to say my daughters beaded necklace and sons toy corvette. It’s the little things!

3. Favorite thing to do with children in the OKC Metro?
The zoo! We love spending time outside when the weather allows and what better place to enjoy a variety of nature you can’t always enjoy elsewhere?

We don’t get much time without our little ones but we love to attend Thunder games when possible. I’m no basketball expert but the atmosphere is so fun!  I also enjoy walking around downtown, taking in the city life since we’re from a small town. As for something I enjoy doing with my girlfriends, Affair of the Heart when it’s in town, there’s so much creativity and talent!

Welcome, ladies!
