15 Random Facts to Know About Me

15 Random Facts to Know About Me

1. 100% Nerd: I am 100% a nerd. I love Harry Potter, the Hunger Games, Disney, Sookie Stackhouse, Twilight, 50 Shades, etc. If I could throw themed parties for the movies and books that I love. I totally would, but I would rather not look like a crazy person!

2. I love to read: My husband hates when I get a new book series, because not only do I binge watch TV shows, but I binge read. I have been trying to make an effort to limit how much I'm reading per day. I'm currently reading Sookie Stackhouse series. I'm on book 8 and have checked the rest out from the library.

3. I love to cook and bake: I wish we had little fairies in the world that would clean dishes when I get done cooking or baking, because that would make the process even more enjoyable, but so far I have had zero luck in that department. But I still love to feed people. To me that is comforting to take care of others.

4. I love to sing Karaoke: I am a normally very reserved person and I'm not one who likes to be the center of attention. However, I do love to sing Karaoke. I am nervous every time I go up there, but no matter what I sound like, it's still always fun. I have yet to convince Joe to duet with me... but I continue to try or nag, however you want to look at it!

5. Craft Addict: If I could spend infinite money each month buying craft projects and supplies, I would. However, I am not a crazy person (even though Joe might differ on days I drag him into Hobby Lobby), but I do enjoy creating new decorations, gifts and home decor for our house.

6. Pinterest Addict: I love all things Pinterest. Except for the fact that it really hinders productivity around the house. I could pin 5,000+ things on how to clean the house better, while I should be cleaning the house, but usually I'm just pinning! It's addicting to see all the different ideas that you can find in one place. I do like getting recipes and DIY decoration ideas from the site.

My favorites:

7. Candy Bar: Reese's Cups, followed by Milky Ways & Twix bars
8. Food: Pizza followed by a close second of chicken and dumplings
9. Color: Blue (like Colts blue....or my bridesmaid dresses from our wedding)
10. College Team: Louisville Cardinals
11. Sport: Basketball
12. Pro Teams: Colts & Pacers
13. Animal: Polar Bears

14. Las Vegas: We love to go to Las Vegas. We are getting ready to go again. It's our favorite place to travel. It has cheap hotels, cheap entertainment, poker, blackjack, sports betting, lights, and the alcohol is free! What is not to love?

15. Favorite TV Shows: Breaking Bad, The Newsroom, Glee, The Mindy Project, New Girl, Modern Family, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Boardwalk Empire

Date Night Jar

The Hubby and I have been together 8 years. The one thing we have consistently argued over for those 8 years is the question, "What do you want to do?"

I consider us to both be intelligent adults, but when that question comes out of the other persons mouth its like we become fools and have no thoughts.

Our common answer is "I don't know" or "I don't care". 

Well I found something to fix that problem. Our date night jar!

I saw the idea on Pinterest (where all ideas live of course) and decided it was an inexpensive, crafty solution to our problem.

All you need are Popsicle sticks, markers, a jar, and your list of activities you want to use.

Both the Hubby and I brainstormed ideas in the categories of free dates, cheap dates, more expensive dates, and plan ahead dates.

Here is our example list:

Making the list was the hardest part. There are a lot of online links for date ideas. Just cater your list to your tastes and preferences!

This doesn't really requ…

Las Vegas Once Again!

The Hubby and I just made our 8th trip to Las Vegas! Our favorite place to vacation. Baby Girl got to stay with her Mimi and Pappy while we were gone.

We had a great trip filled with food, fun, and plenty of gambling. We didn't hit it big, but it was a great vacation of spending quality time with the Hubby.

We stayed 3 nights at the Rio. The Rio is just off the Strip. We like staying here because it's not near as busy as being on the Strip. 

The Rio recently added a KISS themed putt-putt golf course. We played and it was fun, but I am horrible! 

September is a huge month for us. We both had big birthdays (3-0... let's not talk about that) and our anniversary. So we both decided instead of buying gifts we would do something fun in Vegas. We decided to see a show and we picked Absinthe. 

It is SO worth the money. If you get offended by ANYTHING, please do not see it. It is acrobatics mixed with crude comedy. We had a great time! We saw this show when it first opened back in 2011 …

Spring Break in Las Vegas

Once again we traveled to our favorite place.... LAS VEGAS! We had four days packed with fun. The weather was great while we were there. In Indiana, however, it was terrible, so a good week to miss!

By now everyone should know we are planners and love to get good deals. Well Las Vegas is a town of deals if you look close enough. Before we went we were able to snag some items from our MyVegas game on Facebook. We had two FREE night helicopter tours over the strip, a complimentary picture with the helicopter, two FREE show tickets to KA at MGM, two FREE show tickets to The Beatles LOVE at the Mirage, and two 2-for-1 Buffet tickets to the Mirage buffet. All those items together were valued at over $600. We paid $0 for them. I also got some items off Groupon for super cheap!

So before we even left we had planned out what nights we were doing what and so on. 
We arrived in Las Vegas on April 1st and headed directly to our hotel. This was our first time at Harrah's. We loved our location. …
