Sea Life and Senators

Roughly ten years ago, my Senator had an opportunity to attend a conference in Puerto Rico, and the kids and I tagged along because, well who wouldn’t want to go to Puerto Rico, right? Coincidentally, I had met a lovely mom friend through American Mothers from Puerto Rico and she…

Libraries & Magnolias

This week, the Senator and I did a really fun thing.  We got together with my parents and hosted a little get together for a dear friend of ours, Sean Burrage, who is the President of a University in the Southeastern part of our…

House of Cards

I have always said good people hardly ever run for public office, and why would they, considering all of the scrutiny, partisan politics and personal attacks that are endured by a candidate or office holder on a daily basis? Well, unless you are Barack…

And, they’re off!

Starting to get crazy around here again as session is looming! Last week, my Senator had some colleagues over to our house for an event. They stayed until 11:00 pm talking in my kitchen, which makes for one tired momma! I’m glad they like each…

First Day

Today was the first day of school for our kiddos.  The tall guy on the right is a senior. He is my first born and this is not easy, knowing he will leave the nest soon. But, hey.  At least we know that shoe…

Chicago

The Senator and I just returned from a quick trip to the Windy City for a legislative conference and man was it fun! We have been to this particular meeting before and it is always packed.  Packed with people and speakers and meetings and…

Oklahoma Proud

Devastated.  Stunned. Paralyzed by the horrific storm that blew through my great state yesterday afternoon. I will never forget this day, May 20th, 2013. I will never forget what I saw unfold. I will never forget watching the massive tornado from the calm of…

A few weeks ago…

So much has happened this legislative session!  It is amazing how much can happen in a few short months.  Some good, some bad and some ugly all mixed together.  One of the happy highlights for me is when my Senator invites his colleagues over…

Dinner

I am cooking for the Senator and his friends tomorrow night which means that I am cooking and cleaning for the Senator and his friends today. This is really one of my favorite things that the Senator has done throughout his tenure and I…

That’s my man!

The Senator got to visit the Keystone Pipeline the other day….How cool is that?!  

Prayer Day

While I was down at the Capitol on Monday, I happened to catch up with my Senator for a few moments as he was taking photographs with some students participating in the Legislative Page program. He was giving them a brief history of the…
