Another week has flown by! I can't believe we are already into February, time is going by so quickly!

The Hubby and I have started bowling again. Our local bowling alley has a deal on Sunday's for $19.95 you get 2 hours on a lane. It's so much fun! 

The Hubby is just so good at it. I really can't compete with his high games. He got a 248 the other day....really?!? You haven't bowled in a year and you come out with a 248? I will say that I got my all time high game of 160 the other day! Whoop, whoop!

I am trying to convince the Hubby to do a Valentine's Day bowling event at our local bowling alley. It's some kind of Scotch Doubles tourney...the only problem is neither of us is very sure what that is or what to do!

We finished the basketball season this week. Now we just have the banquet and the Hubby will be done with 8th grade basketball. This year has worn me out.

Right now I am looking into starting to make all my own baking mixes and products. I am just as guilty as anyone for walking into the grocery store and buying something because it's convenient. 

However, if I just plan ahead I can make my own convenience food. I am hoping to start it at the end of the month. I am currently trying to cook our way through the pantry to start fresh. I found a great website to get ideas from, it's called

One of my favorite ways to cook is turning on my music and singing away while I cook or bake. Here is one of my new favorite songs! It's Boyce Avenue doing a cover of Journey's "Faithfully".

We were watching The Office again the other night, so I just have to leave you with a Michael Scott quote. I know we all feel like this sometimes! Happy Friday!

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. …
