Yummy Spoon – My thoughts!

Jamie is 7 months old now. I seriously don’t know where time has gone. I find myself staring at her in awe, more often now-a-days because I just am amazed that Seth and I made this perfect little human. For the last month or so, we’ve been experimenting with solid foods. I said I was going to make all of her food, and for the most part I do, but I found some of the least expensive packages at Aldi, and have bought some from time to time.

You can imagine how excited I was when my sweet friend from Yummy Spoon sent me this!
If you haven’t guessed it by now, it’s called a “Yummy Spoon.” This thing is SO COOL, too! Basically, all you have to do is put in some food, like I’m doing in this video, mash it down if it’s a solid food, I used some already pureed baby food from Aldi, but if you have something like a banana, or avocado, you can put it in there, mash the food up, and it will dispense out of the spoon, perfect for your little one! It’s so easy to use, it’s not as messy, and Jamie LOVED it!


It is a little larger than that she’s used too, but that didn’t seem to bother her, and honestly it was probably easier for her to grasp once she got the hang of it. The plastic is great for younger children – like Jamie, and I can totally see her using this spoon when she’s older too!

Oh- best of all, you can throw this in the dishwasher, and you don’t have to worry about anything else! You can ALSO freeze it, so if your little one is teething, it would be nice to have around. We are going out of town this weekend, so I can’t wait to take it with me to experiment with it some more.

All in all, I’m excited for her to have this, and I can’t wait to see her grow and continue to use this YUMMY SPOON!

You can check out the website HERE 

ALSO- Because my friend is so sweet, you can ALSO purchase this amazing spoon with a discount by using the code “MOMWANT” you will get 20% off your order! HOW AWESOME is that?!

Thirsty for Margaritas?

Hey Ya’ll! Happy Thirsty Thursday!! I’m so pumped today, because I’ve been waiting all week-long to tell you about one of my FAVORITE places to eat and have some margarita’s.  In the small town of  Forney, Texas! But you guys, I’m here to tell you, this is for SURE one of the best places in the land, that I’ve found!

Nestled in the quaint town of Forney, Texas – right outside the Dallas city limits, you will find a cute little mexican restaurant called Rio Lerma. When you walk inside, you won’t be disappointed. I PROMISE! This place has it all. From Hamburgers, to Tex-Mex, to some authentic dishes, and even a pasta section, you’re pallet will be so EXCITED!


You know what’s even better? On Wednesdays, they offer .99 cent margarita’s! Did you hear me correctly? .99 CENT MARGARITA’S! So, if there isn’t another reason to go there and try it out, this would be it! I can promise you, the margaritas don’t disappoint either. You can only have 2, but if you’re like me, 2 is really all you need.


If you’re into Karaoke, they even have that on the weekends.

Honestly, this is one of my favorite local places to eat, drink, and have fun conversations with our friends. The staff is AMAZING. They have known our daughter since she was growing in my belly, and when I call to make reservations on Wednesday’s – they know me by name.

So, if you’re in the area, or visiting the great city of Dallas, Texas – I recommend you take a stroll outside the city limits, and try this place out. I promise, you will be happy you did!

Thirsty Thursday – Lee Harvey Edition

HAPPY THURSDAY, EVERYONE! I’m so ready for this upcoming weekend, I can’t even stand myself. It’s been a week for the books, that’s for sure. I can’t complain though, it’s been a busy, tiring, fun-filled week. This weekend is also Easter, and I’m happy to be celebrating another first holiday with my little family. Those are the best things to look forward to. Oh, the joys of being an adult, and a parent!

So, here I am, sipping on my wine, ready for next week already, and thinking about some of the best places to tell you all about. This one comes because I can’t wait to go back! We have a friend coming into town next week, and when he asked us to take him to Lee Harvey’s, I couldn’t even begin to tell you how happy I was about this! So, without further ado, here is this weeks “Thirsty Thursday” – Lee Harvey Edition!

A small little bar in South Dallas that was made from a house, this place doesn’t even boast small. Honestly, when you walk in the doors it feels like home, maybe a little home from the 80s, but it still feels like home. Drink specials every night from 3-7, and seriously, who doesn’t like a place that makes their own pickles?!

They have bands that play on the weekends, they have this super kick ass outdoor area that you can bring your dogs too if you want. Picnic benches, and even fire pits surround the outside. Makes you never want to leave. Their motto, which I personally LOVE is “a little friendly dive bar that welcomes everyone.” I can’t say enough good things about this place, but I’ll let you check out their webpage for yourself  Here

I’ve even added some pictures of this joint, just so you can get a feel of what I’m talking about.

Do these pictures not make you want to hang out there, like ALL THE TIME?! If you don’t believe me, you should try it for yourself. Also, if you want to join their mailing list, so you can see when the next event or concert is, just go Here .

So that’s all I have for now, friends!

Have a wonderful night, and BOTTOMS UP!

Cheers!

Thirsty Thursday!

If you can’t tell by my posts, I like to relax with a cocktail or 2 occasionally, (ok- I really like wine…like REALLY like wine!) So I decided to start a new segment with this blog featuring some local restaurants, wineries, breweries, or bars with some of my favorite foods, drinks, etc!

I started last week, but, well, life happened and I didn’t get to post anything about the location that I was featuring. So this week we will have a 2 part segment- consider yourselves lucky!

The first place that I want to tell you all about is a brewery that’s close to our house, and oh so tasty! They are fairly new. My husband and I went to their grand opening a couple years ago, and we have been hooked since! Woodcreek Brewing Company is one of the coolest, most relaxed places to visit if you are in Rockwall, Texas. They have a fun atmosphere, this life sized Jenga game, and all of the staff is VERY friendly. You can tour the site, and learn how they make some of their beers. And while you’re there, you might as well taste them! No matter what you have in mind, they have something to cater to anyone’s pallet. Go check them out!

The next place that I want to talk about is Revolver Brewing This place has one of my MOST FAVORITE beers in the planet. I mean, seriously ya’ll- this beer is amazing. Blood and Honey! It’s like a blue moon, but stronger, and even tastier! If you are in Grandbury, Texas you need to go by this place. But if you are local, you can find their beers in almost any grocery store now, too! That makes this mommy VERY HAPPY! I’m telling you- this beer is SOO good, I even got some of my family members on it, and they live in South Carolina! Guess they just have to come visit us more often! 🙂10509646_10101994837596430_3494585407891749935_n

Well, that’s all I have for now. Stay tuned for more places around here, because believe me, I have more to come!

Thanks, and bottoms up!!
