Local link dump time! Here are all the links to the blog posts worthy of laundry and lawn-mowing procrastination that I’ve gathered over the past week or so. Enjoy!
And So She Blogs. Carrisa did breakfast at Utica Square’s The Wild Fork, hit the Anthropologie opening, saw Hard Rock & Casino, Toby Keith’s and Admiral Flea Market, all in one weekend. Way to do Tulsa, Carrisa. I’m feeling a little inadequate at this point.
You might not know this about Carrisa, but she’s married to this local artist. Thom is practically a Tulsa institution. Buying a poster of his for your home would be only correct for the T-Town proud. It’d also be totally bitchin’.
Blogging Basics 101. Whether you want to admit it or not, photos are important to the success of many a blog. Melanie at BB101 has some tips on optimizing images for the Web, as well as some resources on how to make compelling photo collages.
Cindy’s Clipboard. Cindy has some compliments for Stonehorse Market, one of Utica Square’s best-kept secrets.
Crash Test Mommy. Jenny, the one and the only CTM, has five things from her childhood that she wishes her mom hadn’t sold in a garage sale in 1985. All I have to say is, I know, right? I feel your pain, Jenny.
The Errant Cook. Jennifer at TEC discovered the Brady District’s Glacier Chocolate on a date night recently. I can only think of one way a date night could end better. Get more details on Tulsa’s newest chocolatier in a recent article I wrote for Tulsa Business Journal.
Fat Ass to Fit Ass. Besides writing with the best blog name ever, Kate thrifts it up at local thrift stores as she finds herself between sizes in her journey to get healthy. Three new-to-her pieces to add to the wardrobe for a mere $10? Good going, Kate. Oh, and thanks for all of the hilarious photos.
Fran’s Findings. Fran has a spread from the Natural Farms food co-op. A look into local food co-ops right now would be wise for the locavores among us (or we who aspire to and strive for such greatness) since most of the farmers markets are now in hibernation.
Kellyology. Did you know that Kelly is the queen of the penny pinchers? It’s true. But she hasn’t written about her personal finance wisdom…until now. My pocketbook is already doing its sad, vulgar little happy dance.
Living on This Farm. From one of my favorite blogs anywhere, Tulsa or otherwise, comes a 30 day for challenge inspired by a Depression-era poster from the U.S. Food Administration. Check it out, or be like The Errant Cook and dive right into participating.
Lortondale. Shane over at the Lortondale blog has a list of 100 Ways to Screw Up Your Midcentury Modern Home. I may have committed more than one of these crimes against my 1964 home. I didn’t know it at the time, but still – ignorance of the law is no excuse. I just hope not to see Shane any time soon, on the good chance that he’ll have his paddle (the one with the holes in it) handy.
Oklahoma Modern. Rex at OM lets us know that the home of ORU architect Frank Wallace is on the auction block. All I can say is, I’m glad my birthday is still a few days away – I still have time to add a little something to the list.
Roemerman on Record. Steven has the season’s first batch of chili, complete with a “recipe.” How do you make chili, and what are and are not proper chili ingredients, in your opinion?
That’s Baloney! Flat Baloney visits Japan. What the heck, right? I know. But you have to see it. Now I want a flat TDT to send to far-off and exotic lands.
This Land Press. If you’re not reading this journal of relevant readings regarding Oklahoma, well, you should be. Pick up a copy of issue No. 2 today.
The Tao of Cake. Shelley at TToC has info on what goes down at a Tulsa Cake Club meeting. Yes, Tulsa has a club devoted to cake. And I’ve decided that this is the only club I ever want to join again, ever. Mmm…cake. It is my soul.
Tulsa Food Blog. Brian at TFB has a review of the Krispy Kreme Burger, the food sensation of the 2010 Tulsa State Fair. Also? There’s video. And a bit of donut frosting on his nose. That’s how it’s done, people – done right.
And don’t miss out on Joe Price’s review of the new Hey Mambo Italiano, the Brady District’s newest Italian restaurant. This hip little place is good, y’all – real good. Be sure to order the garlic knots to start things off right when you stop in for a look-see.
Tulsa Gal. Nancy, the blogger behind Tulsa Gal, writes about the history of Lebanese steakhouses in the Tulsa area. Fascinating – and appetizing – stuff.
What Tulsa blogs have you been reading this week? I’d love to hear about them in the comments.
