I am the most romantic person in the world – IN MY HEAD. So, since I do not have a man at the moment (I am open to blind dates), I just keep a list of romantic things I would do IF I HAD A MAN.
Bubble Bath and Chocolate Dipped Strawberries
This night is brought to you from my imagination and from Wally World all for under $20. To create this romantic night you will need the following inexpensive items from Wally World:
Strawberries – $3.00
Baker’s Dipping Chocolate in a Microwavable Tub – $2.48
Dr. Teal’s Bubble Bath – $4.87
In my head, my man comes home to find a bubble bath, chocolate dipped strawberries, and candles in the bathroom. Of course, Sade is playing in the background.
Tip: Don’t take the stems off the strawberries and make sure to pat them dry with a piece of paper towel.
I recently went to my first magic show at the Improv in Addison about a month ago. I took the girls (Madison and Kendall) and a friend of their’s from church. It was beyond cool. Really, the guy managed to get a signed 20 dollar bill inside an orange! (I’m still trying to figure out how he did that.) Kendall even got the chance to go onstage.
The cost was a little pricey at the Improv since there was a two item minimum for each kid. My bill came out to be over $50. So, imagine my excitement when I discovered that the Galleria (13350 Dallas Parkway, Dallas, TX 75240) has a FREE magic show by Jeff Lee the Magician every Saturday at 11:30 AM located near the Children’s Play Place and Nordstrom on Level 3.
Afterwards, I am going to treat myself to a few treats from the Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory. Can you say chocolate covered potato chips and Cheesecake Apple? Yummy!
Tropical Moscato Sangria by Real Housemoms is the perfect summer party cocktail for your Labor Day BBQ. (I made a few changes because who has time to chop a ton of fruit?)
Really, what could be better than sipping on a glass of Tropical Moscato Sangria on Labor Day with friends and family?
1 bottle of Moscato
11.3 oz. Pineapple Nectar
1 cup Peach Mango Juice
1 cup of frozen mango chunks
2 cups strawberries, sliced
3 cups frozen pineapple chunks
2 kiwi, sliced
Combine everything in a pitcher and chill in the refrigerator overnight.
