When was the last time you did something special on date night? I mean something that provided memories and stories that you’ll share over and over again.

We recently shared that keeping the spice in your marriage means switching it up. And that’s exactly what we did this week at the US Open in New York city.

We had an amazing time and want you to do the same. Lucky for you, we have a special code (BBMWK) for our readers that will get you 50% off or buy 1 get 1 free for select tickets  during three different sessions [details below].

We went this week and enjoyed the sights and sounds of the US Open. We actually invited another couple that are good friends and did a double date. It was the first time attending for all of us and we all loved the experience. Here are a few highlights:

 

 

 

 

Lots to Eat:

We arrived by taking the subway, which was conveniently just one stop from our hotel. And we were starving! Lucky for us, there were numerous eating choices available. Whether you want a sit down experience at one of the restaurants or you just want to pick up something quick but good like we did at the Food Village, you’ll be covered. There are also signature drinks like the Grey Goose Honey Deuce that will aid you through the long evenings LOL.

Lots to Experience:

After we ate, there was still time before our match… so we checked out the US Open American Express Fan Experience. Away from the heat and indoors, we found 20,000 square feet of interactive experiences. This included a full-sized court where you could test out new equipment and participate in tennis clinics, as well as high tech activities and a VIP lounge for American Express cardholders with a live DJ.

Lots to See:

From the food, fun and shopping that was all around, you won’t lose focus on the main draw which is the tennis. There are matches going on all around the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center…. from smaller courts which are first come first serve seating to larger venues like the Louis Armstrong Stadium or Arthur Ashe Stadium. If you don’t have tickets to see your favorite tennis star you still have the opportunity to catch them during one of their practice sessions.

We had seats at the Arthur Ashe stadium for an exciting match between British Andy Murray and Australian Nick Kyrgios that lived up to all of the hype.

What I Do to Stop My Fear of Bugs from Rubbing Off on My Kids

This post is sponsored by OFF! ®, all opinions are my own.

When I was young, my siblings and I roamed freely about my neighborhood, I understood the term “get home before the street lights come on.” And we pushed it to the limits every day, rushing home just as the lights began that eerie blinking.

You may find it difficult to believe I grew up that way based on how I act now. I’m seriously overprotective of my children. I walk or drive them everywhere, even to neighbor’s house down the street. And I’m ridiculously afraid of bugs, especially mosquitoes, to the point where we have never used our outdoor patio.

My husband says, “You’re being too protective,” and he doesn’t want my fears rubbing off on our kids. He especially doesn’t want them freaking out when they see bugs. I agree that I need to encourage my kids to turn off the TV and electronic devices and experience the great outdoors. But, I don’t think I’m doing too much by attempting to keep my family safe when they venture out.

Reading my book in the back yard and not the least bit concerned with mosquitoes now that I have the OFF!® Mosquito Lamp, which protects an area up to 10 times larger than the leading citronella candle.

So, I compromise by doing my part as a parent to fully prepare my children for the outdoors. In other words, I have the “stranger danger” talk, ensure they wear their helmets and use caution when crossing the street. I also make sure they never leave home without applying sunscreen and OFF!® mosquito repellent. Once I’m done with life lessons, they are free to go explore… and I get a bit of free time to myself.

Now that I have the OFF!® Mosquito Lamp, which protects an area up to 10 times larger than  the leading citronella candle I’ve even taken some time to relax in our backyard. I actually enjoy our new patio set! (Well…to be honest, it’s really not new since it’s over two years old…but I have never used it.)

Am I hovering too much? Definitely not!
