I had been waiting patiently for the chance to eat at the Red Brick Pizza. When it finally opened, my husband and I went and had lunch. First of all, I had the most difficult time choosing which pizza to order because there were so many to pick from. They have a ton of choices and I have a hard time with making decisions—especially with things I really like, like food. So if you are like me, allow yourself some time to thoroughly examine the menu. Besides, the 15 different Fire Roasted Gourmet Pizzas they have, they also have salads, Italian Gelato ice-cream, Fhazanis (fire roasted gourmet sandwiches), kid's meals, and sides like bread sticks.My husband is easy and he just ordered a pepperoni pizza a...Read More

If you enjoy running, walking, or the in between which is jogging (what I do), then you just might be interested in an event like the Zoo Run-Run. This event is held at the Fort Worth Zoo—which by the way is an awesome zoo—and the course takes place around the beautiful neighborhoods outside the zoo and also inside the zoo. The Zoo Run-Run is a fun run that supports the zoo's conservation projects.Kids and adults of all ages can participate. I participated in the 5K Run/Walk with eight of my friends and we had a great time. The 5K Run/Walk events they had were the Cheetah Chase (which was for ages 14 and up) and the Zebra Zoom (which is for all ages). The Zebra Zoom is what we did and it is a mix of t...Read More

My husband and I love spending time at Barnes & Noble. It is a huge bookstore with DVDs, Music, Video and computer games, children's toys and games, gifts, and books for all ages. The gift section is my favorite. I can always find the neatest little things to get family and friends. My husband loves to go look at their guitar and music books. There are places to sit and read while you enjoy a nice cup of Starbucks coffee, which is right inside of the store. They also have a music center with a huge selection to choose from, and you can listen to their music while you are there.The people are very nice and they have a customer service desk right in the center of the store with people there to help...Read More

Hobby Lobby is the greatest store in the world! Well, to me anyway. I absolutely love this store. My mom got me hooked on it, and there was a reason people would say, "What? You have never been to Hobby Lobby?" This store has the neatest things in it. Let me describe it to you as I daydream about walking around the store. First, there is a large floral section with a variety of silk flowers, bushes, plants, and greenery. Next to that they have a bridal section which I shopped at for my own wedding, and next to that they have their fabric section which has a great variety of fabrics, ribbon, and sewing supplies. In the back corner they have a framing section where you can get...Read More
