July Overview

Once again, I am behind on posting on my blog. 

We just have been crazy busy again this month. We closed on an investment property and have been busy working there in the evenings. We are in full demolition and paint everything mode!

For some reason this month we have been playing a lot of board games in our free time. I think I might try and host a game night with friends soon. It's so much fun playing! 

I am sad to admit the hubby finally defeated me in a game of Scrabble... I couldn't believe it, but the world is right again and I have beat him every game since.

P.S. Don't you love my vintage Scrabble board I got forever ago from my Great Grandma? It's a turntable, so you can turn the board to face you each turn!

The Hubby and I went on an overnight date trip to a local hotel/casino for a little mini vacation. Oh I just love his funny faces!

Our local drive-in movie theatre closed a few years ago. Well they opened back up this summer! So we made a trip out there and watched The Planet of the Apes second movie. It was very good, but it is so hard to watch dark movies at the drive-in!

Our nephew is almost 4 months old. My Hubby coaches golf and my brother-in-law love to play, so naturally he will need his own beginner golf clubs. I just happened to get them for $3.99 and couldn't pass them up, so they will be waiting on him for his 1st Birthday! 

It's almost time for school to start again. I don't think the Hubby is looking forward to it, but I think it'll be good to get into routine again. However, I don't think the girls will be thrilled to have him gone all day again. They like having company home during the day!

Just look at those faces!

Until next time,

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. …
