Back to the grind...

I am back to the grind today... Monday our office was closed for MLK day. It was great to have a long weekend, even though I spent the whole day Saturday working with my family. My sister snapped a picture of the sunset on our drive down to our parents.
My family is very self sufficient when it comes to food. My grandpa raises cattle, so we butcher cattle each year for our families to split. I couldn't tell you the last time I bought beef from the grocery store. Needless to say I am still sore from standing for 8 hours cutting meat!

The Hubby and I are going to have a super busy week. We have ball games Tuesday-Saturday. We took the opportunity last night to have a date night to see the movie American Sniper. 

It was a great movie. I could never imagine being in a war zone and what every solider goes through on a daily basis. I am thankful to those who serve our country. 

The Hubby and I tackled making homemade flour tortillas for tacos last night. I got the recipe from Brown Eyed Baker

They were really easy and good. The Hubby was in charge of browning them, while I rolled them out. 

The Hubby and I have been playing the MyVEGAS app. It's a free app to play and you earn loyalty coins and points to use on real life purchases in Las Vegas. The Hubby and I got 3rd row seats to see Zumanity in March. That is a Cirque du Soleil show at the New York, New York. 

We are super excited. We are hoping to get another show with our remaining loyalty points, but we can't decide what we want it to be yet. Even Bella likes to watch us play!

We have a busy week ahead! I am looking forward to February when basketball is over and we get some free time back!

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. …
