Jenks

I spent my cold/rainy Saturday morning in Jenks antiquing with my family for the first time ever.













Now before you let preconceived ideas form in your mind about what a place like Jenks, Oklahoma must look like, let me jut in. They host our awesome aquarium, (of which we have gotten an inexpensive membership to already)


Entrance to the Aquarium


1 or 2 Starbucks, a gorgeous movie theater, some fine outdoor dining on the river, and a string of antique stores. Jenks is the home of the Riverwalk Crossing, which was featured in Southern Living's September 2008 issue. I would love to go on a date with Steven there soon..lots of great restaurants and an outdoor theater.

It beat my expectations that's for sure! I have learned not to judge a town by its' name out here...you just never know.

I discovered I could get hooked to antiquing very easily if not monitored by my hubs. He's almost as dangerous as me though. I was rather proud that although I loved all of these:







that I only walked away with this:




A grand total of 5 dollars was spent on this corn meal sack made of soft cotton. I plan to make a pillow for our bedroom out of this beauty as soon as I finish with the girls' room. (I know, I know...I tend to get ahead of myself sometimes)

I did make some progress on their room today. I picked a project that I could get done in one naptime so that I could get re-motivated to finish things up in there. I am halfway through reupholstering their rocking chair and sort of at a standstill with re-purposing their toy bins. So I needed something quick, easy, and not requiring much thought to get the ball rolling again. I will post with a tutorial about it later on. Right now...we're off to the doctor again! The girls are excited. Me?...not so much.

MB, On your next trip sign me up for one of those grain sacks! Great choice - though I am guessing it was price alone that led you away from the striped plate (it is very "you").
