Sweet Tomatoes??

SouplantationExpressI have lived in Dallas my whole life – okay so we detoured to Waco of all places for a couple of years but that led to family friendships and ultimately my hubbie so okay, whatever. And I did go to college in Greenville, South Carolina. But that’s just like going on an extended vacation, you don’t really live there. (My experience might have been a bit more like going to prison, but again, whatever.)

In all my years of living and eating in the DFW area, I have never heard of a place called Sweet Tomatoes.

But, a group of bloggers went over to the one in Arlington this week and I was able to try out their food.

If you have ever visited a Souper Salad, Baja Fresh, or a place like that then you know what to expect at Sweet Tomatoes.

The salad bar was impressive. The selection of ingredients as well as several already prepared salads was unequaled in my Createexperience. The salad was definitely my favorite part of the meal.

Next were the pizza bar, the soup bar, the ice cream bar and the pasta bar! Everyone is drawn to different things and I tried a little of each, but I still thought the salad bar was absolutely the best.

At the end of the meal, I was even able to make a cup of hot tea (although I did have to specially request a coffee cup from the cashier) which at least for me was a nice treat on which to end my meal.

I think Sweet Tomatoes would be a great stop for anyone trying to eat healthy. The foods they offer make that easy and you will leave with a full belly instead of a bunch of regret.

If you are in Addison, Irving, Arlington or any of the other Sweet Tomatoes locations around the country, you should definitely stop in and try it for yourself.

Extravagantly . . . A Personal Post

There haven't been many personal posts from me in quite some time. I find I can't schedule them; I simply have to wait until it comes pouring from my emotions through my brain and into my fingertips.

Apparently today, I have something to say.

I've been reading a really challenging book with an unusual title. Brace yourself - it'sGod and Boobs by Angie Schuller-Wyatt. Yep, Schuller, as in Robert Schuller of the Crystal Cathedral. It's written by his granddaughter. I was a little wary when I received a copy to review. Honestly I was afraid it was going to be irreverent at best and unbiblical at worst. But I haven't found that to be true. In fact, I've been very surprised to find it challenging and encouraging of me as a believer and as a woman - fully and completely, a woman.

One of the things that it mentioned is how often we misinterpret the verse "Guard your heart for out of it are all the issues of life." Growing up this verse was used regularly …

A Christmas Post

This year as Christmas has approached, I have found myself thinking of Mary. Being the mom of three boys, I think it’s easier for me to put myself in her place . . . and yet, who can imagine what that was really like?
I grew up in a very conservative group of believers who eschewed any focus on Mary in order to counteract what they saw as “worship” of Mary by Catholics and Episcopals and some other more liturgical beliefs.
But you can’t deny Mary had an experience that no one before her and no one after her will ever have. She had a unique relationship with Jesus. She was his mom.
Think about the facts as real life and not some story in a book you’ve heard a million times.
Mary was barely a teenager.She had never had sex.An angel appeared to her and told her she was having a baby.Mary is pregnant in a society that KILLS unwed mothers.Mary may have only barely known Joseph as their engagement was likely arranged . . . and he was probably much older. She had to go to this man and try to …

AMAZING Disney Fish Extender Gift Ideas

Being new to the Disney traveler's world meant being new to the FE world . . . and as we researched how we were going to participate in the FE that is a part of our cruise, we came across a lot of good FE ideas so I thought I would share them.

Disney Earrings - there are all kinds and many of them are one-of-a-kind but these are a novelty that I know I would love to get as an FE from someone else

Vintage Mickey Mouse Earrings - $3.99 MindieMay
Disney Character Clothes Pins - These would work well to close bags that hold other FE gifts or you could put a magnet on the back of each one and everyone could use them as note holders on the walls of their stateroom. Super cute - this vendor does a really good job with them.
Disney Character Clothes Pins-  OneMoreSunshine
Wave Phone Holders - If you need more information on what these are, you can see my previous post Top 5 Disney Necessities. Basically these are simple holders for a phone that Disney provides which is a cross between a cell p…
