Goosebumps Comes to Life

In case you missed it, Hollywood put out the trailer for the new Goosebumps movie. Now, before you laugh at me, hear me out. This looks really good. Funny. Cute. It seems like a twist on the books, where the writers tie the classic series together into one movie. I’m interested. As I kid, I lived on a steady diet of R.L. Stine novels. His young adult lit, along with several other authors, got me through a lot of summers and more than…

The Cool List — July 7, 2015

Just wanted to pass a few things your way, some things I’ve stumbled on that you might like, too. Here’s a roundup of what’s on my radar right now. Cold pressed juice—The science behind this juice phenomenon varies, and there’s a lot of debate about actual results, but I’m already in. I love the fresh taste of these juices, especially the ones served at Off the Vine in OTR. Just try them. Trust me. You’ll crave them afterward. Kit and…

Our State Fair is a Great State Fair

Before I moved to Oklahoma, I had never been to a really big state fair. It just wasn’t part of my life growing up. The Ohio and Kentucky State Fairs were two hours away from our home in the Cincinnati suburbs, so making an annual pilgrimage wasn’t something we’d done. When I worked at KSLA, Shreveport hosted the annual Louisiana State Fair, but I often heard that as fun as that event was, it paled in comparison to the state…

Celi at the Cinema: The Conjuring

I love scary movies. People who know me very well know this fact. I’ll watch any scary movie that comes out. I’ll even go to a horror movie by myself. As a kid, my parents never let me watch them. They felt a sensitive child like me wouldn’t be able to sleep after watching Freddy Kruger and Jason mutilate victims. They feared I’d be scarred forever after watching Carrie or Psycho. Horror movies just weren’t a part of my life. At all.…

The Day I Finally Met Jamie McGuire

“If you have a story that is crushing your heart, then write it,” Jamie McGuire told the crowd at Northern Oklahoma College in Tonkawa on Tuesday. She visited the campus to talk to the students about writing and her bestseller, Beautiful Disaster. I was there to talk to her. Sometimes my personal and professional lives intersect, when it happens, it’s awesome.  This was one of those times. You see, I’ll be the first to admit that I’m a fan of Jamie’s writing. She has…

The Reasons I Love The Great Gatsby

This week a couple of new photos from the upcoming adaptation of The Great Gatsby popped up in my news feed on Facebook. Of course, this got me thinking about the novel, and I thought I’d share a couple of reasons why this book has become one of my all-time favorites. Like a lot of people, I first read this book in early high school.  The book was required reading (sophomore year?) for a unit on American Literature, and we…

Oscar Best Dressed

As I said in my post on Sunday, one of the best parts of the Oscars is the fashion. If there is ever a time to “bring it” in Hollywood, that night is the night. The red carpet never disappoints with all gorgeous dresses, beautiful jewelry, perfect tuxedos, and amazing hair. But, as with every party, there are those who shine brightest on a night like this. So who do I think should top any “Best Dressed” list? Here are…

My Oscar Picks

It’s the big night for Hollywood– the pinnacle of award season. Tonight is the night we find out who the Academy thinks was the best of the best. But of course, no night is complete without my Oscar picks. Okay, I’m just kidding. Every Oscar night is more than complete if I don’t weigh in on who should win. But this year, since I’m now a blogger, I figured I’d share what I normally only tell friends and coworkers. Drum roll, please.…
