Best Date Night in a Long Time

Okay, so I know I said that The Improv was the best event I had attended with my husband in a long time. BUT we had a friend with us so while it was a hilarious, crazy fun night, it wasn't really a "date" . . . not the kind where you can kiss and laugh and cuddle and remember why you got married in the first place.

But last night, just Joey and I attended a special access event to experience the new Dave and Buster's location on Central Expressway in Dallas. They let us try out their new summer menu - complete with all kinds of food and drinks. Just take a look:

And they have a whole new set of games they have rolled out just for this summer . . . they are addictive and if you have kids it's going to be hard to get them to leave. I'm just warning you.

They have some great specials . . . right now when you load at least $10 on your Power card, you get your first game of the 5 new games for FREE and when you come in on Wednesdays you get half off all games!

Thank you to the Dallas Blog Collective and Dave and Buster's for making this opportunity available.


  1. I am totally bummed that I missed this. It looks like a blast, and the new menu sounds incredible! I'm going to have to find one over here near me and try out all of the new games. Summer is the perfect time for some family, or grown up, fun at D&B!!

  2. Definitely the best date night in a long time for me and the Hubs too. D&B was such a blast!

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 …

I Cried the First Time I Watched My Son Wrestle

My middle son, Colt, told me not too long ago that he wanted to wrestle. We are a sports family, but wrestling has never been one of those sports. AND this child is on the spectrum . . . now, all that really means for him is that he's not going to pick up on any social hints you drop, he's incredibly literal, and he's finicky about sensations. Yes, the child who is finicky about sensations told me he wanted to wrestle - where people are constantly touching you and holding you down and forcing your body into positions you don't want it to be in. But I have always determined that I would not hold my children back by forcing artificial boundaries on them that they don't have for themselves - so if the boy wanted to wrestle, we were going to let him try it out.

A couple of weekends ago, we went to his first wrestling tournament. I was so naive. We were supposed to be there at 9 am, and, in all seriousness, I made plans for 11 am. I thought we would walk in, he would h…

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…
