Tulsa Sightseeing Day 1

Well, at the end of my travel blog I posted that I’d be having a big breakfast. And boy, did I! I met up with a couple of girls also staying in the hotel and we walked to the Dilly Deli for breakfast and I decided to order “The Jed” which was “a cinnamon roll the size of your head” I figured, I have a HUGE head… no way would it be as big as my head! But it WAS. And needless to say, I did not make it through all of it lol

Then we headed to Dwelling Spaces and I spent $80 on postcards and pins… oh and a poster. LOL I picked up extras of the “Tulsa is my Graceland” stuff because a bunch of people who were not going wanted items so I am hoping I will have no trouble re-selling them. (That was about $40 worth of it right there)

My friend Keena met up with me after that and we headed to locations where Hanson shot the Thinking Bout Somethin and Go music videos around town. We drove by the river where they shot more of Go and did the photo shoot for the cover of The Walk and we went to Ida Red which is a cute little boutique.

Then I decided I needed a Tulsa snowglobe.  For those of you who aren’t Hanson fans, early in their career they released a VHS called “Tulsa, Tokyo and the Middle of Nowhere” in the beginning there is a snowglobe that plays Oklahoma that a friend bought for them before they went on tour.  They are still selling similar ones now… and I knew that if I bought it, I couldn’t take it on the plane because it is WAY too much liquid.  A checked bag was not something I planned on doing either so I ended up buying it and going to the UPS store… it’ll be at my house Friday.

Then we headed to Cain’s Ballroom and met up with some friends and hung out from about 4:30ish til 7:30ish when they let us in.  More details on the show in another post…
