Upon arrival my children were standing outside saying how cool it was to be staring at a castle and I was looking at the traffic backed up on the highway. That was probably one of my biggest issues with the location and the week night show times, can you say rush hour traffic in downtown Dallas?
We were greeted and escorted in where we received the flags for our knight, the black and white knight in this case. Afterward we were escorted to an area, crowns on our heads, where they took our picture and then send to pick a background for our dress up picture. This part was super fun but OMG the pics were so expensive but in line with other amusement attractions price wise.
Upon receiving our tickets, we were instructed to be there an hour before the show was to begin. I understand that they want to sell souviners and alcohol but for us, this was an opportunity to take pictures with the neat things they have inside, including in the bathroom.

From hats that look like they belong to the Cat In The Hat, pirate hats and jester hats, these novelty hats are just the beginning. Some of my favorite novelty hats at US Toy include: the hot dog hat, happy birthday hat and with Christmas right around the corner, the Santa hat.
Be sure to head over to US Toy and check out all their novelty hats.
½ cup creme fraiche (substitute with sour cream, plain yogurt or buttermilk in a pinch)
5 Tbsp coffee beans (ground or instant coffee will work too)
4 Tbsp fresh cocoa butter (available at most health food stores)
½ tsp cool water
Grind coffee beans to a fine texture. Mix cocoa butter with coffee grinds until smooth.
In a separate bowl combine cool water and cream. Wisk the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir together until smooth and silky.
Prep your skin by washing it with a gentle face wash. Paint or apply with gentle fingers onto your facial skin and leave to set for 25-30 mins. Rinse with lukewarm water. That's it!

Let me tell you I LOVE Tiny Prints!
Now I know what you are thinking and no, I am not talking about anything with stripes or big flowers. There are no big moo moo style dresses but super cute, affordable plus size maternity clothes. From comfortable leggings that are so versitle they can be worn with anything to trendy cute tops and tunics, Woman Within has them.
plus size maternity wear while you are there. Happy shopping.
BZZagent asked me to do a review on Burt's Bees new Sensitive Skin Line, I was all in. I will be honest, after trying a million and one things, I was skeptical.
The first thing that I read was that it contained no soap. Now how is something with no soap suppose to work? I also noticed right from the start that it really doesn't have a smell, which is important when your skin screams at you all the time. Within one week of using Burt's Bees Face Wash I will say I was super impressed, no redness, no break outs, no excess oil, Jesus I think you answered my prayers.
The same results happened for my son but getting him to use the daily moisturizer was a different story, remember we are talking about a boy in high school lol. For me the moisturizer worked great. It is not heavy or greasy or oily.
Overall I give it 5 out of 5 stars.
Check out the Facebook Page or the Website for more information and don't forget to take the pledge!

From classic to modern, there is a wool rug for everyone. I love the Botanical collection, the Borders Collection and the Impression collection. Of course, you can search many other kinds of rugs at The Rugs Warehouse, however, my favorite collections are the wool rugs.
As with many companies, you can purchase your wool rug using any major credit card and while you're there, be sure to search the extra large rugs and the oval rugs as well. There is no way you will find yourself disappointed.
I am creating my wish list, another option for those like me who have a challenging time choosing just one or making a decision on the right one. I love the wish list feature since it also allows me easy access to the rugs I like any time I log on.
Head on over to The Rugs Warehouse and check them out.

The writing prompts are geared more toward people who have or have had cancer but if you think about the questions, they could pertain to anyone. Maybe you have a loved one or friend who has had cancer or had a cancer scare and you can put yourself in their position and imagine how you might feel.
I love that the author goes into step by step of her journey through breast cancer and the poems in the book, boy, they are a heart grabber. The book is important because her breast cancer was not detected by a physical exam but only through mammogram.
I highly recommend this book for everyone.
I love the honesty of all the highs and for sure all the lows she encountered. Lorna is an amazing fighter, especially as a singer who realizes that the C word could change her livelihood forever.
This book is amazing for anyone to read but especially someone suffering from thyroid cancer or thyroid issues.
