Sometimes, all you need are chocolate and sleep.

Our kids spent the weekend with their Falon and Jenny (Falon’s mom.)  That meant two full days of KT and Dusty Takle time.

To commemorate our all adult weekend, we decided to do a little staycation at the Skirvin Hilton downtown.


We arrived (sounds like we drove for hours, doesn’t it) at the Skirvin on Saturday afternoon….after a grueling 15 minute drive. 

We had planned to hit Bricktown, and Live.It.Up.  But the thought of even leaving the hotel to get dinner did not sound the least bit appealing.  So, we decided to eat at the little pub in the hotel. 

To top off our wild and crazy night, I stopped by the hotel shop and picked up a couple of sundries.


It’s not Junior Mints or Sour Patch Kids, but they’ll do in a pinch. 

Sidebar:  I know those roots of mine are quite disturbing.  I apologize for the sudden gasp you just let out.  This serious matter will be rectified this week.  And, if you think that’s bad, you should see my toes.  I’m a total train wreck.  Perhaps, I need a full day at the spa.  Ahem, Kris Takle.

After I enjoyed a few bites of chocolate, it was time for you know what.

Ladies and gentlemen, this is where the magic happened.


That’s right.  Ten hours of uninterrupted sleep.  TEN hours!  Told you it was magic.

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have some personal items to attend to.
