Adventure–for the Cost of Recycling an Old Phone

Image
This weekend I took my big boys on an adventure . . . by myself. I’m not sure why it’s taken me until they were 3 and 5 to decide we were going to tackle a big event alone, but it was momentous when I came to the conclusion that we were going just the three of us.We were excited to go over to the Museum of Science and Nature to see an Imax movie on their Omni screen. (If you’ve never been, it’s been my favorite way to see a movie since I was a kid. You actually feel like you are in the movie.) But gas being as expensive as it is, I couldn’t bring myself to drive our van all the way to Ft. Worth. My solution – public transportation. I like public transportation – the subway in New York, the Metro in DC – I love the maps and the adventure. However, having never taken the TRE from Dallas to Ft. Worth, I did my best to research it and we struck off. We caught the DART and took it to Union Station in downtown Dallas. The TRE to Ft. Worth was waiting as if it had been perfectly timed. We ho…

Freschetta Review & Giveaway

Image
This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of FRESCHETTA® for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine. Our household had the opportunity to test FRESCHETTA® By the Slice pizza. Unfortunately, I am not eating carbs or sugar so I wasn't able to taste it. But my husband was excited that for once he got to review an item for MelissaStuff. I bought my slice at Target. The regular price for one of these slices is $1.99. That's not a bad price at all considering the cheap {nasty, in my opinion} pizzas are usually between $1 and $2.  There were three flavors to choose from at our Target - * BBQ Recipe Chicken
* Vegetable Medley
* Six Cheese Medley  
(They also have Chicken, Spinach & Mushroom, but it wasn't available where I was shopping.)
None of those is my husband's favorite, but out of them I chose the BBQ chicken assuming it would be the most hearty choice. It pops in the microwave and is done in just a couple of minutes. It smelled great and my hubbie didn'…
