To Roomba or Not To Roomba?

Yes, that is THE question we had been asking ourselves.  We have a SERIOUS dog fur problem, and when I say serious, I mean it.  We have these two cuties...Tucker & Lola!

Everyone seems to wear their fur...residents and visitors alike!  I love to vacuum, I really do, and we have a great OLD Dyson vacuum that takes care of the fur brilliantly, but....in order to make a difference in the war against fur balls, I would have to vacuum EVERY.SINGLE.DAY. That is not happening people!  I mean, who has time to do that? Well, enter the Roomba, or "UrbanSnoopy" as we have renamed her.  She is amazing.  When some of my friends told me that they purchased a robotic vacuum, I thought they were crazy.  I mean to each his own and I totally supported the freedom to choose how to make your chore load a bit lighter, #noneofmybusiness, but.... I always thought I had more impactful ways to spend our household budget.  Fast forward to a few weeks ago, when I was sitting on a dear friend's floor playing with her son.  I was so impressed with how clean and dust/fur free her floors were.  I remarked as such, privately thinking about what amount of fur be stuck to my pants if we were on my floors, enough to make a new dog???? Probably. I mentioned this to the Urban-Mr. off offhandedly, and voila, Snoopy came into our lives last weekend.  She has already proven to be a worth-while investment and a fun new pet!!!

No promotional consideration was given by iRobot for me to author this blogpost.  I simply purchased the product and enjoy it.

Look Who is Featured on Voyage Dallas!!

Wow!  We are so grateful for this opportunity!  Voyage Dallas is an online magazine highlighting the influencers, small businesses, and artists of Dallas and its surrounding communities. Their mission is to feature entrepreneurs, and local risk-takers.  We are honored to be one of them!!

Meet THE PRZADA TEAM


From Voyage Dallas
"We love small businesses, mom-n-pops, and hole-in-the-walls. 
We’re not snobs, but we aren’t fond of most chains.  
We think independent entrepreneurs, freelancers and other risk takers make our cities exciting 
to live in.  We cherish the rebel spirit, we don’t think just a handful of large 
corporations should control all of our commerce and we think smores with vegan 
marshmallows are better than normal marshmallows. We respect people and 
organizations that take the path less traveled.  We root for the underdogs and we almost
 never say no to pizza.
And finally, we want the stories we share to help give our big city a little bit 
of that small town community charm, where people know each other and 
their stories at a deeper, more personal level."

Legacy Food Hall- YES PLEASE!!!

So, if you are loyal facebook TEAM-PRZADA fans and follow us on both North Texas Lifestyle and our TEAM-PRZADA fan page, you might have seen me post that I was "doing research," AKA eating EVERYthing at Legacy Food Hall in preparation for a blog post!  Well, here it is!  Currently, my number of trips to this oh-so-fun establishment stands at 3!  Come spring break, I think it is safe to say that my visit count may increase!

Detour, Freshfin Poke Co., Forno Nero

Good To Know: 
  • There is literally something for EVERYone!  From pizza to banh mi, donuts to macaroons, to Peruvian Rotisserie Chicken, to Soul Food, charcuterie to lob'sta rolls to poke bowls, THIS place is sure to please. My son even loves it! There is really such a wide variety here.  So much more than even mentioned! They bill themselves as "Chef Inspired.  Foodie Favored. Drink + Dine + Discover" It is certainly a fun and flavorful adventure!
  • There are three levels.  The first floor has the widest variety of cuisine. The second floor is home to a few more, along with a brewery and outdoor eating space.  On floor number three, sits a full scale bar.  
  • They do not take cash, well, sort of.  In accordance with health code, the servers do not handle dollars and change.  Only cards...credit and debit, as well as a reverse ATM set up.  If you have cash, you can find the kiosk entitled "Fill Up Your HallPa$$," and feed it your cash.  This machine will spit out a hall pass with the same amount you preloaded. That way, you can present this hall pass/Legacy Food Hall debit card as your form of payment. 
  • Parking can be tricky, but....the parking garages have a digital solution for that!  Each level show the number of spaces in "real time" that are available. But, beware, go ahead and wear your "cute shoes," but make sure they are your "cute WALKING shoes." 
  • If you want to avoid crowds, this urban-mama suggests going at off-dining times, such as prior to 11 am and after 2pm.
