I Got Moxie How 'bout You

Defined as:
mox·ie / ˈmäksē/
• n. inf. force of character, determination, or nerve: when you've got moxie, you need the clothes to match.

The noun has one meaning:

Meaning #1: (informal) fortitude and determination
Synonyms: backbone, grit, guts, sand, gumption

I know Moxie is defined as a noun but if you ask me Moxie is more of a VERB because Moxie is so totally an action word! It's time to re-write the Dictionary Merrian and Webster...just sayin...


I was asked to host Moxie Mona (in Oklahoma)  as she treks across the country and shares her virtual road trips-Mona is a jet-setter as you can see below, racking up those frequent flyer miles as she makes stops across the US.







Mona had a wonderful time in Oklahoma-before we get started on what mona saw and did, here are a few facts about my great state:

  • Oklahoma became a state in 1907
  • Oklahoma has 55 distinct Native American tribes
  • Before Oklahoma was a state it was known as Indian territory
  • Oklahoma has more man-made lakes than any other state
  • Oklahomas State flower is Mistletoe
  • Oklahoma summers are HOT and HUMID

Moxie Mona Visits Oklahoma




She went to her first OU Sooners game but due to security levels/measures for the stadium she was restricted to stay dry(lucky girl) and watch from the truck-she wasn't alone as you can see






She had a BLAST at the BA Tigers game







She cheered them on from the stands




Mona had a comfy seat to cheer on her fav HS football team(Eric has Moxie too)







 Mona had a great time at Tiger field





It just hapened to be rockin rib fest while Mona was in town: Downtown Tulsa
















There was a comic convention in town as well, the nerdies in my life attended: I couldn't convince my shaggy headed son to carry around a wonder woman doll at a comic convention-I have OBVIOUSLY failed him as a parent...because he apparently had no issues with this big brown blob







Moxie Mom could take him







Proving 'they have moxie'

My confession for today: daddy was admitted to the Hospital yesterday(Mon) Please keep him in your prayers and as soon as I can, I pinky swear promise to be by all your blogs-but for today I will be at the hospital, forgive my comment absence please...

  11. Moxie had fun! Keeping your Daddy in my prayers! Hey, if we get a chance, I want to get Kaybrie and your daughter together either at the parade or the game-very cute pic they will both be in their uniform! Future/Current-love it, btw, my boy ran out on the field w/ the big boys last week, he's hoping for the same this week!

  12. I saw your e-mail about your Dad, Georgie. My thoughts and prayers are with your family. You are so very sweet to even think to send me an e-mail during a time like this in your life.

    Please don't give something like Mona a second thought. You did an utterly fabulous job with this post. Things like commenting and the blogosphere in general go on the back-burner when family calls.

    We'll always be here when you get back. Thank you for playing along. You are such a wonderful friend.

  19. I bet she ate all the ribs she wanted and didn't gain an ounce of weight.

    Praying for your Dad.

  20. Moxie is a great ADJECTIVE. You have definitely got it. Thinking of you and your Dad.

  21. Mona has healing powers too. I will be praying for your dad.

  22. I'm a little confused. Since when is Wonder Woman called Mona?

    Sounds like she had fun, though.

    I'll be thinking of your dad. Take care.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I love it! You sure showed Mona a great time : ) I especially love your Grandma! How sweet is she? She just made my whole night brighter. Grandmas are the best kind of people on the planet!

    But I'll be saying a prayer for your father.I hope he is better soon.

    “美”是主觀的,因此在規劃系統傢俱設計前最重要的就是消費者與室內設計師之間的溝通,消費者以生活使用需求以及喜好提供訊息而室內設計師端則以專業經歷、人體工學、色彩運用…等整合全部資訊作為規劃的主體原則,如此的成果才能符合實際。

    系統傢俱在市場上已運用許久,且早已經跳脫出早期的單元櫃,取而代之的不單只是優質的環保建材,更涵蓋整體的設計感都能契合消費者的需求。當然也可以運用巧思再增添實用及樂趣,以下由實際的個案為您打開系統傢俱的新視野。

    1.顏色搭配

    系統傢俱顏色確實是十分主觀的印象,但是顏色卻能清楚傳達直覺的感受,因此如何搭配顏色也是系統傢俱很重要的一環,且運用於不同的功能的空間都需要以室內設計顏色來突顯特色。

    ★下方運用深色黑鐵刀木紋,左右為霧銀色以及上方白色結晶鋼烤亮面門板的混搭室內設計,踢腳板以淺色楓木洗白木纹並內縮1/3減少碰撞。

    ★運用淺黃色、蘋果綠、澄紅色三色混搭出老少咸宜的鮮豔色彩,也增添系統傢俱空間的明亮程度以及活潑性。

    2.比例原則

    系統傢俱中櫥櫃設計的美觀除了顏色之外在長寬比例與對稱等分,則是直覺上最容易呈現的感覺;所謂長寬比例所指的是由正面觀看的高度與寬度比利,對稱等分則是連續銜接的櫥櫃掌握同等寬度的原則,上述兩項原則並不會使櫥櫃失去活潑與設計感,反而更能提升系統傢俱櫥櫃整體性。

    ★衣櫃門片尺寸以總長等分的規劃方式。

    ★左右對稱的高櫃以及下方矮櫃左右兩邊大小對稱的等分原則,當然上方高櫃亦可選用單邊也是系統傢俱不錯的選擇。

    ★採用比例對稱並不一定是一成不變的造型,間隔對稱呈現另ㄧ種不同的風貌。SEO

  31. Mona in pictures is FUN!!!

    Hope your daddy is doing better.

  32. Obviously, Mona had a blast, but I have to say I'm disappointed she is not wearing a helmet in the first picture. Mona, you have to be more careful. Well, she is a superhero maybe her head is already protected.

    ReplyDelete
  33. I hope for grace and mercy for your father in his time of need.

    Stop by when you can.

    Email me too.

    No rush though.

    Be good to yourself.

  34. Oy vey, I am so exasperated with the Asian spammers right now. At least let me READ the shit you post! :)
    Didn't I see Mona on Tiffany, Heather, and Lula's trip?!
    Sorry to hear about your dad. Good luck!
