My Collection of Dance Games

Posted on January 16, 2018 by under Games, Shopping, Wishlist.    

I asked Brian to take me to Game Stop before we had my last Zumba World Party party because I wanted to beef up my collection of dancing games. We found some games at Game Stop but we didn’t remember what I already had correctly so we ended up getting a duplicate of Just Dance 2016. Brian had to take the game back the next day since I already had it. It worked out great for him though because he ended up getting one of the games he wanted.

In the meantime, we didn’t want something like this to happen again so we decided to take a picture of all my dancing games. Next time we go to the store to pick up a new game for me, we can consult my collection first and then we won’t end up mistakenly buying the same games over again.

Here’s what I have so far..

Of course I have Zumba World Party. This is the whole reason that we bought me an XBOX and Kinect to begin with.

I also have several Just Dance games.

Just Dance 2016 is the one we ended up buying again on accident. I didn’t realize I already had it. The ones I’m missing from the series are actually Just Dance, Just Dance 2, Just Dance 3, Just Dance 2017, and Just Dance 2018. I don’t really much care about the first three Just Dance games but I did order Just Dance 2017 since they didn’t have it at Game Stop. I’m waiting for the price of the latest game in the series, Just Dance 2018, to drop in price before I buy it.

As far as Dance Central games go, I have these ones…

I think these are the only ones they ever made in the series, though. Do you guys know of any dancing game that I should definitely add to my collection?

Becca’s Birthday Game Night

Posted on December 13, 2016 by under Events, Games.    

Untitled

We had the opportunity to celebrate Becca’s birthday last month. It was the Saturday after Thanksgiving so the theme was “Leftover Potluck,” which was perfect because we had a ton of leftovers.

Untitled

I was trying to earn some bonus points so I wore my one and only Pats shirt.

Untitled

We played some Cards Against Humanity and the new Mouthguard Challenge game. I didn’t want to put one of those things in my mouth so I volunteered to be the game master and official picture-taker.

It was hilarious! We had a great time celebrating Becca’s birthday. Cheers to another awesome year!

Ping Pong, Anyone?

Posted on August 12, 2016 by under Games.    

Untitled

Came back to work after ZINCON and found this in our “fun” room at work. It’s perfect because it’s too hot to play outside at the pop-up park in the middle of summer. We’ve gotten great use out of the new ping pong table since we got it. Kinda makes me want to get one of our basement.

Pre ZINCON Prep and Pokémon

Posted on August 1, 2016 by under Babies, Food and Drink, Games, Things to Do.    

We took last Tuesday off to get ready for ZINCON since we had to fly out at 5 AM the next day. We took the girls to the pet boarding place and then got manis and pedis and even squeezed in some Pokémon hunting.

Untitled

Molly was super excited she got to drive to the pet resort. She is such a good little driver. She always looks both ways.

Untitled

Before you freak out, I’m only kidding about Molly driving. We were stopped at a light when we took these photos. She looks really cool driving Brian’s car, though. Really gangsta. Just sayin’.

Untitled

Then Brian and I were off to Nails and Beyond for manis and pedis.

Untitled

I had my toes painted glittery purple to match my prom dress for the theme party.

Untitled

After spending a couple of hours at the nail salon, we decided to head over to District Taqueria to support the Dress for Success fundraising event.

Untitled

Don’t ask me what three tacos I got because I can never remember.

Untitled

Brian is not a huge fan of DT. He’s more of a Qdoba kind of guy. I love the taco selection at DT, though. I also like the thick queso with kick. And, they have great desserts that they serve in cute, little mason jars (like the one the containing the queso in the picture above). We were good and skipped dessert this time, though. Plus, they were really busy. We almost left and ate somewhere else because there weren’t any open tables. I’m glad we waited a bit though, because I really wanted to help Dress for Success even though in a very small way.

Untitled

We walked off our lunch by walking along Douglas and hunting for Pokémon. It was over 100 degrees that day so we were a bit nuts but we’re kind of addicted to the game. We got Rita’s Italian Ice to cool us off a bit and I actually managed to talk Brian to checking out Wichita State University campus as well.

The WSU campus was a bit disappointing. They had a lot of stops and there were five gyms but not really any rare Pokémons. Actually, there were hardly any mons that popped up for us. By far, the best place I’ve found for Pokémon hunting is down by the river. The Keeper of the Plains area is always hopping with Magikarp and Psyducks, and has been buzzing with people (fellow Pokémon trainers presumably) since the game was released last month.

Untitled

Here are some pictures of us hunting Pokémon downtown. This photo was taken a couple of weeks ago at the ICT Pop Up Urban Park, one of my most favorite places for hunting Pokémon because it’s got four Poké stops all in the same vicinity. I was actually walking back and forth along the block to hatch some eggs and I ran into Rolo when I sat the the corner of Douglas and Main to take a break.

Untitled

We’re going to be really busy this coming week so we won’t have time to hit the hot spots but we will definitely keep you guys posted next time we’re out Pokémon hunting and perhaps we can all meet up. Until then, have a fantastic week!

Thanksgiving 2015: All is Well That Ends Well

Posted on December 5, 2015 by under Events, Family, Games.    

It was a little stressful this year but it turned out alright overall.

Untitled

The days leading up to Thanksgiving were hectic. We found a car for Brian, which we paid for on Monday. Then we sold Bebot on Wednesday. That didn’t really leave much time to get ready for Thanksgiving specially since Brian worked Monday and Tuesday.

Untitled

Luckily, we don’t really have to do much to prepare for the meal. We just buy the deluxe holiday meal from Fresh Market as we’ve done the last few years and follow the reheating instructions. The nice thing is we’ve done this a few times that we have it down. We just pull up our Thanksgiving project timeline year after year and follow the schedule.

Untitled

The only hitch this year was that we didn’t get everything that was supposed to be in the box. Didn’t realize it until we were planning where everything was to go. I was like, “Turkey will go here. Ham will go here. Stuffing will go here…” And then Brian interrupts and tells me we don’t have any stuffing.

I was like, “What do you mean we don’t have any stuffing?”

“They didn’t give us any,” was Brian’s reply.

I opened the fridge in disbelief. Sure enough, no stuffing. Brian didn’t think we were supposed to get any and was rather calm about it. I don’t really care for stuffing but I was quite upset. We paid for the deluxe holiday meal package and three pounds of stuffing was part of the deal. Not only is stuffing a big part of Thanksgiving, but it was on the list of things we were supposed to get. I had to show Brian this picture to prove to him that we got gypped.

Untitled

I called Fresh Market at least three times but there was no answer each time. I don’t know why I bothered or why I kept trying other than I was desperate. I knew that they would be closed for the day and there was nothing we could do. We had to go without stuffing for Thanksgiving this year.

On the bright side, I really don’t like stuffing so it’s not like we were missing anything important. Had they gypped us on the corn soufflé then I probably would have gone completely ballistic. LOL.

Untitled

Here are some pictures from Thanksgiving.

Untitled

Mom made lumpia so we just put it in place of where we were going to put the stuffing so there wasn’t an empty slot. It turned out alright. I don’t think anyone really cares for stuffing either, and I’d rather have lumpia any day.

Untitled

Since we had lumpia, we had to bust out the bottle of Silver Swan soy sauce and Datu Puti suka. Mom brought a bottle of banana ketchup for also.

Untitled

This is our turkey.

Untitled

We got two different kind of bread to go with our meal. Fresh Market’s bread is yummy!

Untitled

We also had ham because that was part of the deal.

Untitled

The mashed potatoes were delicious. Don’t know what’s so different about these, but the mashed potatoes made by Fresh Market are just better than others I think.

Untitled

We had way too much green beans.

Untitled

This is the corn shuffle, which is my favorite dish out of all the items that the deluxe holiday meal includes. It doesn’t look like much but it is delicious. We usually have leftovers of everything else but this always gets wiped out.

Untitled

We were expecting a few more people to join us but things came up and it was just us.

Untitled

We still had a great time, though.

Untitled

Brian made these decadent “adult chocolate pudding” desserts with Rumchata and Godiva. Everyone else thought it was too strong but I liked it.

Untitled

Afterwards grandma taught mom and dad how to play Skip Bo.

Untitled

And then it was time to video chat with Brian’s folks in Oklahoma.

Untitled

Here are some pictures of Brian getting everything set up.

Untitled

Don’t mind the bored look on Brian’s face. That’s how normally looks.

Untitled

Isn’t technology great? You don’t even need to visit people anymore. 😉

Untitled

Later that evening our awesome neighbors came by and brought their dogs Nikki and Ellie over. Jim is working is Orlando now and he was home for the holidays. Their house just went on the market because Karen will be following him shortly.

Untitled

These guys are hands down the best neighbors we’ve ever had. We are really going to miss them.

Untitled

So that was our Thanksgiving in a nutshell. Even though I was a little stressed out about the whole stuffing situation. It all turned out okay.

Brian called Fresh Market the next day to complain about missing a vital part of our deluxe holiday meal package. They asked him if he still wanted the stuffing. It was pointless at that point since we had already eaten the rest of the food and so we had no more need for it. They offered us a gift card to compensate us for the missing item and that was fine with us.

How about you? How as your Thanksgiving? Anything interesting happen?
