Here's to 2015!

I can't believe 2014 is over... it's crazy how time flies. I can't tell you how many times my parents said that as you get older time seems to go by quicker. When you are 15-16 years old, you want time to go by quicker, now I'm like slow down!

2014 was a great year. The Hubby and I made a lot of great memories! I hope we can make many more this year!

I know a lot of people start out the new year with resolutions. Most of those resolutions are dropped by the time February rolls around. 

So I am not going to make resolutions. I am just going to write about my hopes for 2015 and beyond.

1. Not live for tomorrow's but appreciate today.
This year has been full of heartbreaks and sadness. It seems like the news is full of terrible stories. It seems like it's always too late that we realize what is important in life. I am going to try and put that first.

I want to enjoy time with my husband. Enjoy life everyday and make the most of what we have. Life is too precious to put things off. You never know what life can throw at you.

2. Walk around more.
I have a new Fit-bit that I got for Christmas. I am going to try to strive to walk more. Don't get me wrong, I could stand to lose a lot of weight, but why focus on the negative when you can look at the positive? I have a husband who loves me no matter what, so I am going to start walking around more. If I lose weight, great! If not, it's still good for me!

3. Mark a couple things off our bucket list.
The last time we took our vacation to Las Vegas, one of our best evenings was sitting around in our hotel room and talking about what was on our bucket lists.

We are planning a road trip to Las Vegas in the spring. This is going to be a 28 hour drive. Some people said it's crazy and that we should just fly. But it's an adventure. The Hubby has always said he wanted to do this and before we have kids and can't we are going for it. Life is what you make it right?!?

4. Don't let the little things change our attitudes.
It's so easy to let others dictate your attitude and emotions. This leads to letting them effect how your day goes. We both have to try to not let others decide if we are going to have a good or bad day. I know this is easier said then done, but you always have to start somewhere.

I know that not all of these will be successful 100% of the time, but maybe they will make a difference in our lives this year!

Here is to 2015. Let this be an even better year!

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. …
