Random Update!

Wow it has been forever since my last update!


We are busy, busy, busy! Basketball season is in full swing and so are the holidays! The Hubby's team is currently 1-1. I'm dressed for the game. I love that his team's colors match my favorite college team U of L. Makes it easy to have double duty with my clothing!



One thing that I can say is that I am completely done with Christmas shopping! I don't know if I have ever completed shopping before Thanksgiving, but I did this year! Online shopping is a life saver. I pretty much bought everything that way this year!


The Hubby and I went on a date night this past weekend. We went to eat at Firehouse Subs and to see the Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1. 


It was a great night. I had never ate at firehouse subs, but it was really good. Then how can you go wrong with any of the Hunger Games movies? Jennifer Lawrence is a great actress. I just love her in all her movies! I cannot believe I have to wait another year to see the conclusion... at least I read the books, I know what happens. I cannot say the same thing for the Hubby, so he is just left wondering! We are both #TeamPeeta. 

Don't mind the dark picture. It was me being sneaky with pictures in the movie theater!


I have been working on some crafts. When the Hubby is watching football, I usually like to have something to do. If not I end up falling asleep whether I want to or not... so needless to say not only am I done Christmas shopping, but everything is wrapped. I have also made two fleece tie blankets and this Sunday I worked on some coffee mugs and plates.

It's a super easy craft to do and it is inexpensive. I buy coffee mugs or plates from the Dollar Tree and use permanent markers to decorate them. Then you bake the item in the oven at a low temperature for an hour and you can hand wash the dish.

Here is a Harry Potter inspired coffee mug I created!


Until next time,

Kara

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. …
