Friday Five

I am back with another addition of Friday Five.


This weekend is all about having fun.  And we really started the fun off last night when Chase surprised me with tickets to OKC Thunder vs Mavs playoff game in Dallas.  We had an absolute blast and thoroughly enjoyed watching our beloved Thunder take down the Mavs in game 2.  But...for the rest of the weekend:

1. Fun & Games- we are headed to Dave and Buster's for food and games with some friends.  I am really excited about skeeball and basketball.
2. Shopping- its been awhile since we have shopped the Allen Outlets in Frisco so our Saturday morning will consist of some good quality shopping time.  Lucky for me my husband likes to shop too!
3. In-N-Out Burger- opened their first restaurants in Dallas a couple weeks back and lucky for us there is one in Frisco near the outlet mall.  Hopefully the line won't be too bad.  : )
4. Thunder Game 3- coming off the Thunder's awesome win in Dallas on Thurs night, game 3 is back in OKC on Saturday night.  Going to sport our Thunder gear and cheer them on from the couch.
5. Mad Men- the Netflix fairy dropped off disc 3 of season 4 a couple days ago.  Sunday will consist of marathoning through the 3 episodes.

6. Top Golf- only the best thing ever!  Its a driving range that keeps track of points based on where you hit the golf balls.  Oh and did I mention you have a waitress that serves up a full food menu and full bar.  Genius!

Pretty decent weekend I think.  What are your weekend plans?

summer treat

One of the best things about the summertime is enjoying my favorite summer treat, the 7-11 icy, or slurpee as they are called here in Dallas.  It's the frozen frosty beverage that will cool you off and make your hot summer day as perfect as possible.

I have been drinking 7-11 slurpees since I was old enough to drink out of a straw.  My parents would take my brother and I on bike rides through the neighborhood to 7-11 with the entire goal of the ride to end up with an icy in hand.  The half coke half cherry has always been the perfect combination.  And don't kid yourself, no other convenience store "iced" beverage is the same as the blended goodness that you get at 7-11.

In order to keep the integrity of this drink intact I only allow myself to drink them during the summer, so for the next couple months I will be in icy heaven.  (and no that was not an ode to 7-11's old Thank Heaven for 7-11 slogan)

Happy Summertime everyone!
