If you are looking to support local this Christmas or are just interested in a higher quality beef or poultry than you may find in the grocery store, I have found a wonderful option for you! I was contacted recently by Blue Valley Meats about their local delivery service to Tri-Cities, with grass-fed beef, free-ranged chickens, raw milk, gluten-free sausage and more and knew I had to share!

Be sure to check out Blue Valley’s available items for order, including raw milk from Pure Eire Dairy, pork from Pure Country and much more.  They carry high quality steaks, standing rib roasts (prime rib), lamb, boneless ham, bacon, Andouille sausage and much more.  Blue Valley was generous enough to share some of their cottage bacon and chicken legs with me to try and they were AMAZING.  If you’ve never tried fresh, free-ranged beef or poultry, I promise you there is a huge difference in taste, texture and quality.

Click here to order online, no minimum purchase required.  Blue Valley will deliver FREE every Thursday, with a special Monday delivery before Christmas.

Blue Valley Meats just released their December newsletter, with tons of great information on ordering, delivery calendars, serving size and cooking tips and more.

If you haven’t heard of Goldstar yet, they are an awesome site that offers discount tickets to events, concerts and performances nationwide.  They have a HUGE selection of venues and events to choose from and this is a great way to have a night or afternoon out without breaking the bank.

One of my favorite events that is available right now is a bus ride from Seattle to Leavenworth for the annual Christmas Lighting Festival.  Pay just $60 (50% off) and ride the bus to Leavenworth for a full day of fun during the festival and then the amazing Lighting Festival at dusk.  This is worth every penny to not have to try to find a hotel (near impossible), worry about parking or the drive back.  You just kick back and relax, kids are welcome too!  Three Saturdays to choose from in December.

If you aren’t interested in this events, you can still sign up and receive a weekly email with events in your area.  Just enter your email address and zip code and you can easily customize your preferences.

Our new gym is open, our new gym is open!  For the past few months, the folks at Natural Selection CrossFit have been hard at work fixing up our brand new location in Kennewick.   The new gym is almost 4000 square feet bigger than the old gym, with TONS of room for growth, bigger classes and more equipment.

This coming Saturday November 8th, we are hosting a huge grand opening celebration from 10 AM – 12 PM.  If you have ever been remotely interested in CrossFit, come take a tour of the facility, check out what it’s all about and watch (or participate in) a fantastic CrossFit workout of the day (WOD).  There will be plenty of athletes and coaches on hand to answer questions and snacks and refreshments to enjoy.

We will also be raffling off FREE memberships at the opening.  I know the cost of CrossFit can be pretty daunting and is the reason some of you have mentioned you just can’t make it work.  Here’s your chance to make it happen!

The new box is located at 309 N Belfair Court in Kennewick, just off Deschutes and across from the Tri-Cities Cancer Center.  The place looks AMAZING, you won’t be disappointed.

If you have any questions, please let me know.  This is a great time to come check out what CrossFit is all about!  To find out more about Natural Selection, check out their website.

Today’s Spotted Fox deal is fantastic: Snag a 5-visit pass to one of two indoor playgrounds and gym through Mid-Columbia Gymnastics for just $10.  This makes each visit just $2!

There are 2 locations, off of Fowler Street in Richland and off of Gage Boulevard in Kennewick.  Each visit typically costs $5 per child, so this is well over half off, a fantastic deal!

You can buy two per person, one per child.  I am so darn excited about this deal, this is such an amazing way to beat the heat or the extreme cold.  These are both huge indoor playgrounds for children 18 months to 8 years. They have a tumble track, bounce houses, foam pit, slides and much, much more.  There is plenty of room for your kids to just run their little legs off.

On a side note, this would make an AMAZING gift.  We asked my husband’s Mom to buy us a gift certificate to the indoor gym a few years ago and it was such an amazing present.  We were able to go several times to keep busy and active during the hottest months of the summer and the coldest months of the winter.

Click here to get started. Limit 2 per person + 1 as a gift.  Promotional value good through April 15th, 2015.

Today’s Spotted Fox deal is fantastic: Buy a voucher for $20 worth of food and drinks at Uncle Sam’s Saloon for just $10!  The best part about this deal is that half of all proceeds go to a local charity, After School Matters!

Uncle Sam’s Saloon is my favorite, favorite bar in the entire Tri-Cities. It is just a little hole in the wall across from Costco, but they have super cheap beer and the BEST bar food in the entire world. Their nachos are seriously the size of a small car and could feed an entire baseball team! Before we had kids, my husband and I use to go there all the time and watch baseball or football and have dinner. They have a zillion TV’s and just about every sporting event in the world can be watched there.

This bar will always be near and dear to my heart.  I went in there one day before my husband and I got married, sat and had a beer and wrote my wedding vows.  Perfect environment for such an occasion, don’t you think?

Click here to get started.

The fine print:
* Limit 2 per person, may buy 1 additional as gift
* Food must be purchased with drinks
* Expires 12/31/2014
* Full amount of voucher must be used in one visit

Bill’s Berry Farm in Grandview, WA is hosting their Apple & Pumpkin Festival starting Saturday September 27th.  The festival runs Saturday the 27th and Fridays and Saturdays for the entire month of October.  Hours are 9 AM to 5 PM and admission is free.

Bring the whole family out to pick apples or pumpkins, ride the Barnyard Train, visit the petting zoo, enjoy a BBQ lunch, press your own apple cider and more.  They have the corn maze, which is shaped like a barnyard complete with tractor and silo, with a smaller maze just for young kids.

Our family LOVES Bill’s.  We attended the festival last year and had a wonderful time.  Ate some outrageously delicious (and addicting) homemade donuts, played on the swings and picked several pumpkins at a very reasonable price per pound.  We can’t wait to go back this year!

For more information and directions, check out Bill’s Berry Farm website.

One of my favorite events that is available right now is A Chorus Line at the 5th Avenue Theatre in Seattle.  A Chorus Line has won 9 Tony Awards and the Pulitzer Prize for drama.  This emotional musical follows a number of performers as they audition for the chorus of a new musical — each one sharing the joy, exhilaration, sweat and tears that make up the life of a would-be star. These unforgettable songs by master composer Marvin Hamlisch, combined with stunning dancing and powerful storylines, make for an unforgettable theatrical experience.

There are 11 dates and times to choose from and tickets are as low as $42, with regular prices ranging from $80 to $90!

This past weekend, my husband and I and some friends attended the Tri-Cities Parade of Homes put on by the Home Builders Association of the Tri-Cities and had a blast!  If you have never been, the Parade is a collection of 25 homes around West Richland, Richland, Pasco and Kennewick done by different builders in the area.  The ticket you purchase has a space for each home that you get stamped at each visit.

The Parade ran all last weekend, this Wednesday September 10th from 1 PM – 7 PM and next weekend, September 13th and 14th from 9 AM to 5 PM.  You can visit the homes anytime during these windows and you are welcome to poke around anywhere in the house, ask questions, take pictures and just enjoy the amazing features and design. The houses range in size and are broken up by square foot category.

We spent all of Saturday morning running up and down Tri-Cities, checking out as many houses as possible but still trying to enjoy them.  We didn’t even make it to half!  They varied so much in design, color, layout, landscaping and size and it was really fascinating to see how different builders envision a home.  My husband and I love to dream and talk about what the future holds, so we really enjoyed this time we got to spend together.  Going with friends this year was really interesting as well, hearing others’ ideas and feedback and opinions opened my eyes to really see a lot more of what was going on in the houses.  It was so fun to talk about possible upgrades we could make to our house or what we would love in a future house.

Just a few of our favorite rooms and ideas:

10637893_10203963099472142_1647005739_n

I LOVE the mix of modern materials with basic and clean cupboards and drawers.  The back splash really gives everything a homey feel and makes the space far more interesting.

10656124_10203963099272137_1001389552_n

I just love the simplicity of this room.  And apparently I really like white cupboards.

10660472_10203963135433041_657481856_n

For some reason, this bathtub made me want to jump in and swim around.  So much light coming in through the window and I LOVE the walls.  They give it a very farmhouse feel.
