It's Friday....Watch a New Movie or TV Show!

It's Friday again! Whew, glad that week is over. I am counting the days until our Spring Break vacation. It can't get here fast enough.

It has been a pretty uneventful week, but that's not a bad thing! We have watched a couple movies and shows over the past couple of weeks. Some were good, some were not so good.

The Hubby wanted to rent Nightcrawler. He said it was one the best movies he has seen in awhile. I didn't really care for it, because I hated the main character. It's hard to enjoy the movie when you can't stand watching the main guy throughout. The story is about a man starting his own news recording company and getting to be the best at it, no matter what it takes.

We have been getting our money's worth from Netflix this month. Besides watching our favorite show, The Office, we have been watching some movies.

The Interview, let's just say it wasn't very good. There were a couple parts we laughed, but mostly it was just dumb.

Chef was another movie on Netflix. I really loved this movie. I thought it was funny and heartwarming. It's a movie about finding out what is really important in life and getting back your passion for the things you love to do.

Magic Beyond Words: the J.K. Rowling Story is a Lifetime movie that was on Netflix. It was pretty good. I initially turned it on thinking it was a documentary and not a movie, but I enjoyed hearing the story of how she came to write one of the all time best children's books, Harry Potter.

We have also found a couple new TV shows that have caught our eye.

It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Season 10 is back on! Don't get me wrong this show is completely crazy. No group of friends could be this stupid, but this season has been really funny so far! I'm excited to see what else they have in store.

Better Call Saul on AMC. I didn't realize this had started. I knew that it was in the works, but we missed the premiere episodes. We are going to try to catch up with the first couple of episodes, so we can watch them each week. I can't wait to see this show, we enjoyed Breaking Bad so much and Saul was the Hubby's favorite character.

The Shark Tank has become one of my favorite shows to watch. I like the idea of watching people just like you and me getting an opportunity to go big with a simple idea or invention.  Mark is my favorite shark, he is honest and very intelligent, but doesn't shove that into the people's faces. 

Hopefully this weekend you can enjoy a good movie or show with your sweetheart!

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. …
