ReDo Recess at The DoSeum

There is a new children's museum in town! The DoSeum on Broadway opened this summer and has been a huge hit among the children in San Antonio. Last Friday night they opened their doors after hours to the adults of San Antonio. We joined in on 'Night Out at TDS' and let me tell you, it was a blast!


The DoSeum had pre-sold tickets, but Rob and I found out just in the nick of time to get in line for tickets. We were excited to play around in the kid's museum with NO KIDS. Plus, Tacos N Tequila was serving up dinner and their famous margaritas. That's right, a kid's museum, tacos, and margs! Definitely a Night Out!


The museum itself was very impressive! They had a 'CSI' area where you can play detective, crack the code to the secret bookcase, play 'Guess the Spy', and much more. There is also a small town, for kids 5 years and younger, that had a HEB, bank, trolley, vet, and airport. It was so cute because everything was so small. I can see kids having a blast in there!


For the more mature kid, just walk up the musical staircase to the land of Robots. You have mini Robots that you control to pick up items, say hi to Baxter, control an Caterpillar machine, and much more! Back downstairs there is a Sound and Light area that teaches the vibrations of sound and how to manipulate light.


The best part of all is the areas outside the museum. They are in the process of building a tree house, but have completed a wonderful playground. There is also a water area where kids can learn how dams work, make huge bubbles, and how to manipulate water.


I highly recommend The DoSeum to any kid or adult that wants something to do in San Antonio. We had a blast at their Night Out at TDS and will attend another soon. It is the perfect date night! They are planning on doing the adult nights monthly, so be on the look out for the next one!

2015



2015 is finally upon us and I could not be more excited for a fresh start. 2014 was a wonderful year but my resolutions tapered off towards the end. The new year means you get to set new goals, new plans, and set your eyes on something different.

Since I can not really keep resolutions all year long, I wanted to make 2015 a focus year. And my focus is me! Last year I realized how eating better and exercising made me feel better. So this year I am going to focus on being the Best I Can Be! 


The Best I Can Be

Healthy Eating- try to stay 80% Paleo

Exercising- run a marathon with Rob

Styling- put more thought into my daily outfits

Beauty- wear a lipstick everyday

Me Time- wake up early to enjoy some peace

Celebrate Life- see the positive in every moment


What are your 2015 resolutions? Please share!

Broccoli Pasta


This is super quick and easy recipe for those times when you are just too busy. It doesn't call for a lot of ingredients either. We use the tomato sauce for our pizza sauce, so this meal usually follows homemade pizza night (which are my favorite). Broccoli Pasta is also one of those meals where I don't feel like it's all veggies; it's 'paleo in disguise' as I call it. This recipe only makes 2 servings of the pasta part, but would be so easy to double.

Broccoli Pasta

2 links of Italian Sausage
1 12 oz bag of broccoli slaw
2 cups of tomato sauce
Parmesan cheese, optional *leave out to be paleo

Tomato Sauce
1 can tomato sauce
1 small can tomato paste
2 tablespoons Italian Spaghetti Seasoning
1 tablespoons olive oil
Splash of red wine *leave out to be paleo


1. Slice Italian Sausage into 1/2 inch rounds. Place in pot over medium heat. Brown for 5 minutes.



2. Mix all ingredients for tomato sauce in a medium bowl. Set aside. You will not be using all that you mix together! 



3. Add broccoli slaw into pot with sausage. Sauté for 7 minutes or until soft.





4. Add only 2 cups of the mixed tomato sauce from bowl into pot. Warm for 7-10 minutes. 


5. Add cheese if wanted. Enjoy!


 My husband, Rob, thought of this recipe one day. Creative he is! We have since perfected it. Enjoy!
