Good News, Tulsa Town!

Tulsa is ranked by to be one of the 25 strongest housing markets in the U.S.

This is good news, except that I have been waiting out the market so I can grab up some good real estate investments. Ahhh, such is life. I'll buy anyway :)

So, as if there aren't 100 other reasons why life in Tulsa is good, here's one more!

I Just Can't Decide...

I need to decide on art for my dining room. I have after all, lived in my condo for more than 6 months now... So there's the blank wall, staring at me while I am trying to eat my Fruity Pebbles and watch The Real Housewives of Orange County. I'm on Team Gretchen, by the way.

Because I have the black and white thing going....

I was thinking of doing something like this - straight out of the new Pottery Barn Catalog. But maybe with stretched canvas and maybe a different saying.... perhaps the word "laugh" in all different languages?

Thoughts? Suggestions?

Okay, So Now I Am A Little Nervous...

Jean Warner linked to my blog. Which is great - I love reading her blog - except my blogging skills pale in comparison to not only Jean but to well, anyone over the age of 6. More importantly, I have admired Jean and her work to advance the status of women in Oklahoma since I first met her when I was a participant in NEW Leadership in 2005.

To clarify, for Jean's thoughts, I work in government affairs for an energy company based in Tulsa, and I am currently pursuing my Masters in Political Management from George Washington University.

Since I work in politics, and was a new media "guru" (I use that term loosely) in a short past life, I would really be into this. Except I have one problem... I love news, I work in politics, I love talking about current events and policy... but I can never think of an actual topic to write about on a blog that has any general purpose in the world.

So, when it comes to blogging, I typically concentrate on nonsense such as little laptops, funny stories, and cupcakes. Which is cool, because in my the very back of my brain, that's what is usually floating around (especially the cupcakes...mmmmm). Sure, I am down to business when I am working, and I take what I do VERY seriously, but hey - it's the silly little musings that make life worth living, right? I think so.

Because I am a little self-conscious in my lack of serious blogging skills, I promise to be a little more deep on here every once in awhile. Trust me, I'll get on my soapbox and drive you nuts.

But always in the back of my mind will be the nagging voice telling me to watch what I say, that much of the information I come across in my work life is sensitive, and that most importantly, once you post something on the internet, you can never take it back.

So, here's to going out on a limb sometimes.

And thanks for the link, Jean. I look forward to working with you - and I love being a part of the Oklahoma Women's Coalition!
