Applebee’s Grilled Watermelon & Spicy Shrimp Salad Review + More #Woodfired

Applebee's Grilled Watermelon & Spicy Shrimp Salad Review + More #Woodfired

About 15 years ago I lived near Martinsville, Va., and there was an Applebee’s there. I tried it a few times and it was good, but it was never a restaurant that I frequented. I am not really sure why. It just didn’t grab me for some reason. But I went to another one closer to home with a friend recently and it was pretty dang good. They also had great prices {I think I remember them being pretty expensive back in the day} so I decided to start eating there more often. I have been seeing advertisements for the new Wood Fired Menu and thought it looked really good, so Jay and I decided to eat at an Applebee’s in Winston Salem, NC just a couple days ago.

PF Chang’s China Bistro Review {Winston Salem, NC}

PF Chang's China Bistro Review {Winston Salem, NC}

Almost a year ago, Winston Salem, NC, got it’s very own PF Changs. Jay and I had never eaten at a PF Changs before, so we decided to try it out this past week. For those of you unfamiliar with PF Changs, they serve Asian food. When we walked in, it did not look like the typical Chinese and Asian restaurants that we had dined at, in the past. It felt more like a modern restaurant/bar that you would find in a city like downtown Charlotte. With candles on the tables and dark woods, it felt very contemporary.

5 Classic TV Shows To Introduce To Your Kids Today

5 Classic TV shows to introduce to your kids today.

Many kids are growing up on Nick Jr and Cartoon Network and think that classic TV shows and movies are boring. If you ask a teenager to name a movie that starred Cary Grant, John Wayne or Doris Day, many will probably look at you with a blank look and assume you are as ancient as the dinosaurs {a look I know all too well}. Try a show of hands to see what teenager or child has seen an episode of Gilligan’s Island, Hogan’s Heroes or Gomer Pyle. Kids just don’t understand that classic TV shows that are in black and white are still hilarious pieces of entertainment.

We like to try out all of the thrill rides at Carowinds while they like to hang out at the Boomerang Bay Water Park. So,we teens decided to just walk around and ride every roller coaster we saw.

My Favorite Summer Concert Experience: Maroon 5 and Train #RockYourBlog

Maroon 5 and Train: My Favorite Summer Concert Experience ~

Gym Class Heroes crowd.

The one thing that Dawn and I have done the most of since we met is to go to concerts. I admit that I never saw myself as a huge concert goer when I was younger. I am not a huge fan of crowds, so I avoided them. But Dawn introduced me to the joys of summer concerts, and we have been to several of them since we have been together. Geesh, if I were to list them all here it would take up the entire post! We have seen so many talented artists in so many different venues, from bars and nightclubs to outdoor arenas. It has been fun.
