Perfect Date: Be Part of an Audience
Whether you go to the symphony or a comedy club, attending an event together meets the needs of extroverts and introverts. "You're out among other people, but it's intimate in that you're listening together or laughing together," Schwartz points out.

We celebrate our soldiers on this day!

We celebrate our soldiers on this day!

‘On this Memorial Day, we honor the sacrifices of prior generations. We honor the sacrifices of the men and women next door who have served or continue to serve our country. And we pledge never to forget the true meaning of Memorial Day.’ – Walter R. Borneman

Feel That Love Is In The Air
So you need something that gets your palms sweating and your heart pumping in your relationship? This date should do the trick: go bungee jumping. Better yet, take the ultimate leap of faith by being tied to your S.O. in a “Lovers’ Leap” bungee jump! Yes, we’ll admit that the whole “taking the leap together” idea behind it is a little corny, but the idea that you have to trust and literally embrace one another is pretty true to heart.

Meet For A Blind Date
Yes, you already know each other intimately. Take that intimacy to the next level by meeting for a romantic, mysterious rendezvous date. Here is how it works: you make the arrangements and leave a seductive note somewhere he’ll find it (tucked into his suit pocket or slipped into his briefcase). Make a scavenger hunt out of it by leaving clues like this so he knows where and when to meet you. The more mystery, the better! You don’t have to check into a room at a five-star hotel or jet off to some exotic private island (although we don’t doubt that would earn you big points). It’s about reenacting the thrill of the chase (even after you’ve caught each other).

Ice-Cream in That Flavor? Seriously????

OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!  The last time I was grossed out like this, it was after looking at a video about boils bursting on YouTube!  LMAO!!

You are not going to believe some of these flavors that critics are saying we need to try this summer.  LIES (as Tamar Braxton would say)!

The Velvet Elvis

Elvis’s favorite sandwich toppings of peanut butter, bananas, and bacon get swirled into ice cream for the Velvet Elvis at Arrabelle in Vail, Colo. Fresh bananas and housemade candied bacon add alternating soft and crunchy textures to this excessive homage to the King.

Lobster

Handfuls of fresh, buttered lobster meat are folded into a butter-flavored ice cream base at Ben & Bill’s in Bar Harbor, Maine. It has been serving this novelty since 1988, handing out the savory samples to skeptical tourists seeking a more adventurous dessert alternative to lobster rolls.

Arugula and onion

Who needs dressing when you can get a quenelle of onion ice cream with your arugula salad? At Cancún’s Le Basilic in Mexico, the sweet, creamy ice cream melts into peppery arugula and tart tomato confit for a fresh start to a fine-dining meal.

Squid ink

Order the ice cream sampler “gastronomika” at Bilbao’s Heladería Nossi-Bé for savory gourmet flavors including squid in its own ink, cod pil pil and kalimotxo, which is red wine with cola. There are actually bits of squid and fish in the ice cream, and it’s certainly interesting for a couple of bites. We prefer the Idiazabal sheep’s milk cheese ice cream with walnuts and quince paste, like eating an entire cheese plate tossed into a blender.

YOU’VE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME!!!!!!!!!!!  Just these few made my stomach hurt.  Who would…how do you…why did they…..I CANNOT!
Please click the link below that I found on Yahoo by Amber Gibson.  She’s amazing to have found all this out but this is some nasty ish.  LOL
🙂 Phee

Watch Out Kim Kardashian, Someone is coming for Your Selfie Crown!

I love articles and cute stuff about animals.  This one takes the cake.

elphie

What you are seeing is an elephant taking a selfie.  Yes, he or she is hunny!

While being fed bananas by this college student, the elephant took the student’s GoPro camera and took this picture of the both of them over in Thailand.

This is so cool, the student has the first “elphie” like the article says!  LOL!

I’ll stick to using my selfie stick though.

Quickie Date Night Ideas for Parents

– ­Some alone time is better than never having any alone time! So if you need to rush back home to your little ones, there are a bunch of different ways to have a “quickie date night”.

– Consider making just a date night dessert run to your local cupcake shop to satisfy your sweet tooth and to have some quality one-on-one time. It’s the perfect way to cap night.

– We get it – you want to rush home after work to your kids. But sometimes, it’s important to take a moment to spend some time with your partner before getting back to the chaos of little ones. After work, consider doing a “happy hour” (or even “happy half hour”) at a local wine bar to catch up on the day. Bonus – you get to spend some QT on the commute home.

– After the kids are tucked in bed, resist plopping on the couch and watching TV! Instead, open a bottle of wine and catch up on the day’s highlights now that there’s some quiet in the house. You can even try your hand at a puzzle as a soothing activity before bed.

– Another great idea is to hit the road. Whether it’s a walk around the neighborhood, visiting a local park or hiking a trail, being outdoors can have a refreshing impact on your relationship. Bonus? You burn calories too!
