LOVE on the Plaza tonight!!

FREE Artwalk and Valentine Events!

Every second Friday of every month, the Plaza District hosts "Live on the Plaza". Live on the Plaza is a monthly art walk event which promotes emerging artistic talent in the Oklahoma City area. Plaza District businesses open their doors with monthly visual artists, performing artists, live musicians and local film screenings. Many special events also take place during LIVE on the Plaza, such as Lyric Theatre performaces, CD releases, private parties, holiday retail events and many more. LIVE on the Plaza provides the community an opportunity to view emerging talent each month, as well as socialize with a diverse mix of artists, professionals, neighborhood residents and families.


Tonight, being that this is Valentine's Day weekend, Live on the Plaza has turned into LOVE on the Plaza!! Feb 12th (TONIGHT) from 7-11 PM


Bring your valentine, grab a date or gather your pals to indulge in the art walk with a romantic twist! It will be an all out cheesy romantic night filled with photo booths, a Plaza Prom, and a kissing booth! So much heart-felt fun! And the walk is FREE! So come check out the best of what Oklahoma City has to offer tonight!


Activities for tonight's LOVE on the Plaza include:

The Velvet Monkey Salon is having an art show with artwork by Josh Heilaman! Be sure to check out the Velvet Monkey Sweetheart Salon specials as well and support your monkeys!

Next door, head to Collected Thread and grab a peck at the Plaza Kissing Booth with artist Samantha Lamb! Collected Thread boasts a Valentine's Special, plus fantastic jewelry and accessories for that special lady.

Then on to DNA Galleries for featured artist Alex Despain, jewelry by Moi, local art and accessories, plus fresh flowers to woo that special someone. DNA Galleries will also be hosting the Oklahoma Visual Arts Coalition promoting Momentum, OKC's art exhibition for artist's age 30 and younger. Momentum is coming up March 5-6th!

Over at Coffy's Café, enjoy local talent at open mic night

Then head on Shop Good for live music by the Grown-Ups and featured artwork.

Bad Granny's is having an open house & live music by Sleeper. Hit up Bad Granny's Bazaar for that funky find!

Be sure to stop by Chaparney for an open house, then down Gatewood to JuJu Gallery to "Charm your Valentine with Voodoo Valentines and Parlor Games".

Celebrate the Grand Opening of Warpaint Clothing Company, Plaza District's newest retail business boasting Native American style fashion, screen printed tees and more. There will be plenty of celebratory events at the opening, so stop by and see what Warpaint has to offer!

At Lyric on the Plaza, you could be one of the first in the country to see Snapshots, a brand new musical with a brand new concept from celebrated composer & lyricist Stephen Schwartz. Along with book writer David Stern, Mr. Schwartz has woven together treasured songs from his musicals past to tell the enchanting story of a couple who have fallen out of love. But when they come across photographs that stir up joyous memories of the past, their many years together come alive in front of them. You'll recognize favorites from Wicked, Pippin, Godspell, Children of Eden, and Rags among many more musical gems, all with Schwartz's own revised lyrics that beautifully tell this heartwarming, romantic story.

To top the night off, Paula & Co. Realtors are hosting the Lover's Ball! Bust out the 80's prom dress for a Plaza-style prom complete with balloon arch for awkward prom photos to remember LOVE on the Plaza forever! There will be punch, music, dancing, and sappy love song karaoke!

Speaking of remembering LOVE on the Plaza forever.. after an amazing night with your sweetie, head to No Regrets Tattoo. They are having a $40 Love Tattoo Special from
2-close!! Any type of love inspired tattoo is ONLY $40. Well, starting at $40, it's not my fault if you get carried away at all the LOVE you may be feeling in the Plaza tonight! No Regrets will be slingin ink all night, but it's first come, first serve so don't wait too long!

For those of you that don't know, The Plaza District is an emerging art and entertainment district located in the heart of Oklahoma City, off NW 16th between Classen and Penn Avenues. A district with rich history, diverse culture and renewed energy, the Plaza District is home to local shops, galleries, restaurants, studios and creative businesses.

FREE Potty-Training Supplies!

Are you about to embark on this magical journey that's all about cheering and creating a big fuss over necessary bodily functions?! You may be excited to finally stop changing diapers all day, or you might be nervous about the whole thing. Either way, it's inevitable. And as for myself, the time has come to start my strategy and set up my game plan.

If you are in the same position as myself, I've got some great stuff for you!



FREE Potty-Training Kit from Huggies Pull-Ups!


I have signed up for several of these Potty-training kits over the last few months, preparing myself for the inevitable. So, I'm not exactly sure what included with this particular kit.. It's a suprise! No, most of the kits come with stickers or toilet cling-ons to encourage "big potty use", a potty chart and a sample of a Pull-Up diaper or coupons. They are all actually pretty cute though, so if you are about to hit this stage, or thinking about it, I would sign up for this one. Click HERE to get yours.


FREE Potty Training Success DVD!



Here is another freebie encouraging and guiding you towards greatness, a FREE potty training success DVD!

What kid doesn't want to be successful when they go to the bathroom?! No matter what your child’s phase of training, you’ll love the Pull-Ups® Big Kid® Central Potty Training Success DVD. This DVD includes tips, techniques, songs and games to inspire your little one to go. Click HERE to get your DVD.


Not to favor either major brand of diaper, here is:

A FREE Potty Training Kit from Pampers!


The FREE Pampers Kit includes:
• A free sample of Easy Ups Trainers
• High-value coupons
• Fun stickers & coloring pages
• Step-by-step potty training tips
• Potty Progress Chart
• Dora or Diego training trophy

Click HERE to get yours!

And last but not least, if you just want some charts to help you out, HERE is a great website full of charts!
These charts have just about any character you could imagine on them, if there is a favorite one that might they might have.. I'm not sure why having Winnie the Pooh or all of the Disney princesses on a chart would help make them go to the bathroom more regularly, but hey, whatever works. I guess we just aren't at that stage yet. You'll have to print them out yourself, but they are all FREE!


NOTE: All offers available while supplies last.


My only advice is to not wait too long before beginning potty introduction and to not force it. I'm sure it will happen for you sooner or later, hopefully sooner! :) GOOD LUCK!!!

FREE Full Size Aveeno!

I am really excited to try this product! I'm in some desperate need of stress relief lately, and I can always use a good lotion with this dry Oklahoma winter weather.

Thank you HeyItsFree!

Just Between Friends

Just Between Friends is coming back to OKC

The Just Between Friends is the leading children's and maternity consignment sale event and it is coming back Monday March 22nd - Saturday March 27th at the OKC Fairgrounds! Just Between Friends is basically the biggest garage sale or thrift store you've ever seen, seriously, that building the sale is in is 70,000 square feet! But, everything there is centered around babies, kids, and toddlers.

The hours are Mon-Thurs 10-7 and Fri & Sat 9-6. Friday is 25% off day, and Saturday is 50% off day. I had a lot of fun last time it was here and I got a LOT of things for a really great price.


They have just about everything from toys, books, clothes, shoes, decorating items, furniture, movies, games, and so on and so on. My sister didn't get too much at our last visit because she wasn't sure if she was having a boy or a girl, but now that we know and she's almost due, I have a feeling that she won't be leaving empty handed this time.

They have announced that everyone should enter the fairgrounds at gate 5 south of 10th on May, because all other entrances will be closed. The sale will be located in the Cox Pavilion Building.

FREE American Baby Subscription

FREE American Baby Subscription




Click HERE for your FREE subscription to American Baby magazine.

I still receive this magazine. It's nice because unlike most magazines, it doesn't take me weeks to read. I can actually read this one in about 3 minutes cover to cover. Don't judge me for not being able to read an entire magazine in one sitting. If you are able to read an entire magazine at one time I'm jealous. I'll hand you my daughter for an afternoon and you tell me if you feel like reading magazines, or are even able to!

Cheap Listerine at Target!

Cheap Listerine Smart Rinse at Target!


A reader of myfrugaladventures found a great deal on Listerine Smart Rinse at Target! As she reported, this was not in the weekly ad. So, if you want to try this deal, look for signs at your store that have details on the promotion, or you can always take the items to customer service and see if they can help.

The deal is buy 3 Listerine Smart Rinse mouth wash at $4.49 (price may vary a little) for a double pack and get a $5 gift card back.

There are $1 off coupons HERE, in the 10/4 SS, 12/6 RP or HERE.

So if you buy 3 at $4.49 each = $13.47
Use (3) $1/1 coupons.
Pay $10.47 and get a $5 gift card back.

That makes the net price $5.47 for 3 mouth washes or $0.91 each!

If you like this product, $0.91 each is actually a really good deal!


Thanks, My Frugal Adventures!

Do the Potty Dance!

Do the Potty Dance!

I am so excited! I was chosen to host a “Do The Potty Dance” House Party! By HouseParty.com!

Let me just tell you a little bit about what House Party is.. House Party is by FAR my favorite website when it comes to discovering new products and sharing them with people.


What is a House Party™?


House Party™ lets people who really love something host a special event featuring a fun, free, exclusive experience sponsored by the world's leading brands. You basically sign up to host "events". Each event is sponsored by a leading brand and focuses on something cool–like a new product, hit TV show, or great cause–that the sponsor wants its best fans to experience firsthand and share with their friends. (Check out some of our recent events.)

You host. Everyone wins. House Party lets you share the stuff you like with the people you like, through a fantastic, free party experience. What's the catch? There is none: Our partners understand that if they share something good with the right people in a fun way, we'll all help spread the word.



I LOVE this! It's all of my favorite things, hosting parties and FREE stuff! Well, once again, I was chosen to host another party (I have already hosted one) called Do the Potty Dance hosted by Pull-Ups!

My FREE party pack will include:
•“The Pull-Ups® Potty Dance” instructional mats
•Pull-Ups® product coupon for hosts and guests
•Big Kid® Central DVDs for guests
•Pull-Ups® fact sheet
•Free eMusic downloads (including “Do The Potty Dance” song) with a 7 day free trial to eMusic
•Digital photo keychain
•Bonus Points for Huggies® Enjoy The Ride Rewards program to use for chances to win some pretty neat prizes


If ANYONE wants to join me at my house party, send me an e-mail! There are only friends on this site. I'd love to invite you all!


(Free to join. Membership subject to Official Terms & Conditions)
