Reminder: Free! Spring Mom's and Babes Fest Saturday 10am - 2pm

Just a reminder in case you didn't go today. Spring Mom's and Babes Fest is happening in Market Street on Saturday 10am - 2pm  and is FREE!

I was there today. It was fun! Lots of activities for little ones. I suggest finding the Chick Fil A cow to get coupons for free food. I got 2 spicy chicken sandwich coupons (no purchase necessary) and 2 Kids Meals Coupons (no purchase necessary). I also picked up water bottles, pens, pencils, bandaids, and Mom Expo Passes for free. 

For kids, I saw sand tables, crafts, stickers, balloons, candy, music, parachute play, soccer, tatoos, face painting, cake, shaving cream, and more! 

This is a good opportunity to learn more about local businesses that are geared towards moms and children. 

Pappas BBQ Deals: All day Sat and Sun All You Can Eat Pork Ribs are $5.95 and Mon/Thurs after 5pm pork ribs and slice beef plate are $4.95

So, I went there tonight. I saw on their billboard the the $5.95 special. It was only on the tables did I see the flyer for the $4.95 promotions. It includes sides, too. That is awesome that we found 2 $5 dinners. I guess we are going to have to start a thread about where you can eat dinner for under $5. Anyone know of other good places? Please leave comments on the blog linked to this message or email me, and I will post it. 

Look Out: McDonalds and Wendy's Coupon books for Trick or Treaters

Please let me know if you signs up that McDonalds or Wendy's has their Coupon books for Trick or Treaters ready for purchase. Last year, I got a few McDs and they more than paid for themselves in the ice cream alone that we ate. Too bad, we are having a TCBY habit right now. I wonder of McDs will catch on and add probiotics to their ice cream. 

Yum!

Free! Take Me Outdoors Houston: Sat, Oct. 2 10 a.m.-3 p.m. at Discovery Green

Press Release from TPWD:

Take Me Outdoors Houston Set For Oct. 2 At Discovery Green
Houston's 2nd annual Free, Family-Oriented Festival of the Outdoors

HOUSTON —At a time when people in big cities are becoming increasingly disconnected from the world of nature and the outdoors, Take Me Outdoors Houston on Oct. 2 at Discovery Green will offer Houston's 2nd annual free, family-oriented festival of the outdoors.

Exhibitors will provide hands-on activities, booths and opportunities to engage audiences who haven't ever or don't often get exposure to the great outdoors – especially the resources located right in Houston's big backyard.

"By introducing Texans, especially urban adults and kids, to outdoor recreation, our woods and waters and natural places become more relevant and important to them," said Heidi Rao, Texas Parks and Wildlife Department hunter education specialist in Houston. "We believe recreation leads to conservation. If they're out there enjoying the natural world, they come to care about it and finally to care for it."

Take Me Outdoors Houston will take place from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Sat. Oct. 2 at Discovery Green, a 12-acre park created by a public/private partnership between the City of Houston and the non-profit Discovery Green Conservancy. The park's mission is to provide a beautiful, urban green space in the heart of Houston that serves as a village green for the city. It is located across Avenida de las Americas from the George R. Brown Convention Center and the Hilton Americas Hotel, sitting between the Toyota Center and Minute Maid Park. Since the park opened in April 2008, it has welcomed more than 1 million visitors and hosted more than 800 public and private events.

Take Me Outdoors Houston will consist of a variety of exhibitors clustered in topical zones.

The Nature & Environmental Zone will include the TPWD State Parks Division, TPWD Texas Outdoor Family Program, Houston Zoo & Zoomobile, Katy Prairie Conservancy, Armand Bayou Nature Center, Jesse Jones Park and Nature Center, Houston Sierra Club, Houston Audubon Society, Wetlands Center and Baytown Nature Center, Texas Coastal Watershed Program, Student Conservation Association, Friends of Sheldon Lake State Park, and 4-H.

The Hunting & Wildlife Conservation Zone will include the TPWD Hunter Education Program, TPWD Wildlife Division, Houston Gulf Coast Safari Club International, and Laser Shot Shooting Simulator.

The Fishing & Aquatic Conservation Zone will include the TPWD Coastal Fisheries Division, Buffalo Bayou Partnership, and Landry's Downtown Aquarium in Houston.

There will also be two educational demonstrations of live hawks and other raptors in flight by master falconer John Karger of "Last Chance Forever – the Bird of Prey Conservancy" based in San Antonio, sponsored by Houston Gulf Coast SCI.

The Houston Grand Opera will also present the "Butterfly Migration" on stage for two shows.

For more information about Take Me Outdoors Houston, see the calendar of events on the Discovery Green website:  http://www.discoverygreen.com/en/cev/eb/7868634/ or call (713) 400-7336. For general information about ways urban families can reconnect with nature and the outdoors, see the Life's Better Outside Web site.

$5 Thomas And Friends: The Lion of Sodor Saturday's in October - 11:00 am at Sanitkos in Tomball.

From their website: http://www.santikos.com/silveradoimaxex.php


Thomas And Friends: The Lion of Sodor 
Saturday's in October - 11:00 am

Playing exclusively at Silverado 16, Silverado IMAX Houston and Mayan Palace. Tickets $5 each.

Synopsis: Thomas has to transport something called "The Lion of Sodor." It's actually a statue, but Thomas thinks it's a real lion, and is too excited to listen to other engines who try to correct this misapprehension. Thomas gets his friends to help by giving the "lion" treacle, fish and straw. So, all because Thomas was in too much of a hurry to listen to advice, the statue is in a real mess. But Thomas manages to ask all the right questions and gets the statue cleaned and delivered to the Town Square in time for it's unveiling.

New Sweet Tomatoes Coupon: Lunch $6.99 and Dinner $7.99 no beverage purchase required

Sweet tomatoes came out with a new coupon today. Lunch is $6.99 and Dinner $7.99. In the fine print, it says that no beverage is required. That is especially nice because drinks are $2.19, and I usually prefer water with a lemon over the sugary or caffeninated choices. Previously, the best coupon offer was B1G1 free, but drinks were required. It comes out to about the same price, but you were required to have a buddy and to split the cost. So, even if this is a drop more for lunch, it is worth the convenience factor. 

This weeks theme is mexico. 

If you would like to get Sweet Tomatoes coupons emailed on a regular basis to your email, sign up on their website for their e-club. 

Enjoy!

20% off Euphoria Nail Salon and Spa: Grand Opening!

Yesterday, I stopped by Euphoria Nail Salon to check it out. I noticed they had opened this week, and I was curious to see what their pricing was. Everything inside looks fresh and new. It is well decorated. The staff was courteous and friendly. I told them I just wanted to see the menu and that I didn't have time for a service. Immediately, they graciously offered for me to sit down at their bar and asked if I would like a drink. While I was going through their menu (a leather bound book!), the manager came over to shmooze with me. For sure, I will be back when I have more time. Since they just opened, they aren't busy yet and they are offering 20% off all of their services and products. Walk ins are welcome. The prices are comparable to the other salons in the area. 20% off makes it a deal. I will post again after I check out their services. 

Directions: They are located right next FINS on 242. Coming from the I45N, exit 242 and go left under the freeway. They are in the last shopping center before Gosling on the left. Look to make a U-turn after Lonestar College. 

Please tell them you learned about the promotion from Elizabeth. 

I hear they are going to be at the Spring Moms and Babes Fest next Friday!

Favorite Outdoor Playgrounds

It is starting to cool off again, which means that it is going to be playground weather soon. I would love to hear what everyone's favorite playgrounds are. Mine is probably the one at 
22306 Aldine Westfield Road, Humble, TX





In The Woodlands, I like Forestgate the best. (Forest gate is off of Woodlands Parkway past Kuykendahl). 

Leave a comment telling me yours! 

Update: Indoor Playground Reviews near The Woodlands

Yesterday, we stopped by the indoor playground at the McDonalds on Kuykendahl at Louetta Rd. The playground was pretty elaborate. Lots of different levels and 2 main slides. This is a good playground for 2-5 year olds. There isn't anything to do for infants. The structure is pretty much just climbing up stairs to different levels and going down slides. There isn't much else. What got my attention was the size of it, and that you can see into it fairly well. The McDonalds itself was pretty old looking. When we were there, the AC was out in the play area. It wasn't too bad temperature wise because they had the doors to the rest of the McDs open so cool air was still coming in. If I had to choose, I would go down the street to the safari themed one instead because it felt fresher. This is a good one to go to for an active kid, especially if you have never been and you need a new place to go. 

Here is the link to my map of indoor playgrounds in the area and here is link to my post about all the playgrounds in The Woodlands area. 

Atkinson Farmer's Market: Tomatos only $1.99

I stopped by today to see what they had. Everything looked fresh and well stocked. We picked up a good size container of cherry tomatoes for $1.99. They also had grape tomatoes for $1.99 (that is about half of what I pay at HEB for less). Overall, most things were the same price as the grocery store, but you know the stuff that is grown right there is fresher and better for you. I signed up for their email list so hopefully I will get updates on what they have.

Atkinson Farmer's Market is off of Spring Cypress. Watch for the sign because it is easy to miss.

Here is my link to all of the Farmer's markets in the area that I know about. 

2 $5 Sandwiches at Hubble and Hudson

(I wrote this Sept 2)

I love Hubble and Hudson. It is so much fun to shop there. The challenge is controlling what I get because I want everything!

I have discovered 2 $5 sandwiches.

Here is what you do:
The Elizabeth Sandwich: 
Go to the meat/cheese/fish counter and ask for 0.2 lbs of Acme Whitefish salad. Then bring it over to the sandwich counter. Ask them to slice a croissant, butter it, toast it for you. Give them the whitefish salad and ask for them to make it into a sandwich with tomatoes! Voila! Start calling it the Elizabeth and see if it catches on. 

Bagel with Lox: 
They offer at the sandwich counter a bagel with cream cheese for $1.50. Ask them to add 2 slices of lox from the fish counter and tomatoes for a delicious sandwich for under $5. (this is much cheaper than the $9 I pay at another Woodlands sandwich shop for a bagel with lox).

The nice thing about these sandwiches is that they can be eaten any time of the day.

Make your own sandwich at Hubble and Hudson and tell us all about it! 


Hubble and Hudson: Acme Whitefish Salad $13.99/lb

(I wrote this June 26 and never sent it)

Now, y'all might be saying, E that isn't a deal. Well, it is in context. First, it is difficult to find Whitefish salad at all in The Woodlands, so this is one of the very few places. Second, it is delicious! Third, Whitefish salad normally goes at $19.99/lb at other Houston eateries or they sell smaller containers that make it more than $13.99/lb. The nice thing about Hubble and Hudson is that you can tell them how much want. We got a lb and had it for dinner and we still have some left over with 4 people eating it in a sandwich (with tomatoes).

Sushi Happy Hour specials at Fukuda Sushi from 3-7pm

http://fukudasushi.com/

If you want to go for an early dinner any day of the week, you can save at least $1/item by going before 7pm. This is the only place I know in the area where you can get a Philadelphia roll for $4. Even HEB is $4.79. ($5 non happy hour price)

McDonalds Free Smoothie Coupon = Free Frappe

I have done it twice at 2 different locations. McDonald's will give you a free Frappe instead of a free Smoothie if you ask for it when you order with you free coupons. I have also done a ice coffee substitution for a free iced latte coupon.

This just reminds me that it never hurts to ask.

Wanted: TCBY Panther Creek Coupons

Ok, I have started a TCBY habit. I admit it. The B1G1 and the free Mothers day coupons were my gateway. Now, I am craving the white chocolate mousse. I am rationalizing that is healthy because it has probiotics, high in fiber and if I go for the low sugar yogurt no fat and low sugar. The only problem is I ran out of coupons. Yesterday, I spent $7 for me and my little one. So, if anyone has any coupons to share, please let me know. There are some in the new Entertainment book. I would be happy trade for other good coupons.

Randall's Water Sale: Aquafina 24 pack: $3.49

Right now Aquafina is $5.99 at HEB.

Also on sale are Ozarkia, Dasani, and Nestle Pure Life 24 packs, 16.9 oz for $3.49.
