And if you are not following her you are missing a great blog!!
I have really enjoyed reading all the posts about all the wonderful places her followers live. Sort of like a mini-vacay on your computer.
So I thought I would brag about my town a bit. I will start off by saying we are transplants. I am a Mississippi girl born and bred. My Honey was in the Navy so in 9 short years we lived in San Diego, California; Orlando, Florida; North Chicago, Illinois: Virginia Beach, Virginia; and finally here to Oklahoma. We liked it here so much that we decided for our family it was best for him to leave the Navy and make it our permanent home. Never will it be a decision we regret.
Now onto the introductions
For a small town we have GREAT shopping
Great boutiques and clothes on Campus Corner - not too mention lots of great food in this area
In old town Norman there are lots of vintage shops, antique stores, and more boutique type stores. And even more great food.
We even have a little mall - and our mall now has ....drum roll please - JoAnn's!!
There is always something to do
Great concerts - like U2
Lots of city sponsored festivals like Norman Musical Festival where downtown is shut down for a week-end and dozens upon dozens of bands play in different venues.
And with our favorite season starting this Saturday - woo hoo!!!! One of the best things about living in Norman
Love us some OU football!!!
But seriously - the University gives the entire town a sense of unity - everyone has pride in OUR university. And it is a beautiful campus
But the best part of living in Norman is the people. You can truly find someone you "click" with here. Probably due to the fact that being a university town such a wide variety of people live here.
Seriously - come on down for a visit - the SOONER the better
(You knew I had to do it!!)
Now go to Centsational Girl and link up your town.
