Happy NEW YEAR!


Are you a last minute New Year's Eve planner, or, have you enjoyed the same standing plans year after year?  No fear, we've scoured the web to find the BEST North Texas has to offer, so, peruse our list of links to a fun way to say goodbye to 2013 and hello to 2014!

Do you seek vegetarian fare, or do you wish to celebrate like a Parisian?  Is dinner only or dancing the night away your speed?....Guidelive has a listing of NYE celebrations, most with a fixed price menu.

If crowd-braving like all those in Times Square says NYE to you, then check out Dallas's annual Big D NYE Celebration. We've personally never been crowd tolerant enough, but have heard rave reviews!

SideDish, DMagazine's deliciously hip blog, has a complete listing of hot spots and their celebrations. We can almost guarantee you'll feel ultra hip and at least a few years younger. We did, just by reading this list!  Ha!

About.com gets in on the list making with varied events featuring, Dallas favorite, The Emerald City Band, to acts at Billy Bob's in Fort Worth.

Real Posh Mom gets in on the action, too with a list of fun times...there are even a few listings geared to the preschool set thrown in for good measure!

A few of UrbanMama's top picks:

Celebrate in style with dinner and a performance at the Dallas Symphony

Enjoy all that Klyde Warren Park has to offer and ice skate, too!

Our Annual Urban Tradition:  Enjoy dinner at a favorite restaurant, then fun & games at home.  Our personal, fav tradition....Fireside Pies at The Shops at Legacy.  Dinner starts at 5pm, so that's perfect with little ones, and there is NEVER an upcharge menu.  Good food at decent prices=a great way to celebrate! Then end the evening with drinks and board games at home, with a broadcast of big band jazz from coast to coast on NPR. 

No matter how you choose to celebrate, TEAM-PRZADA wishes you a happy and safe new year.

Don't Ignore Those Sounds On Your Roof.....

and other tips are certainly helpful to prevent winter wildlife problems, according to Bonnie Bradshaw with the Plano Star Courier.  Read on for her other tips.

1.  Don't provide a midnight buffet.  Birdseed, pet food and table scraps should be secured as to not be a temptation to wildlife.
2.  Don't put out a welcome mat.  Make sure you repair loose shingles, deteriorating boards or warped siding, as well as trim overhanging branches which provide an on-ramp to critters.
3. Don't forget friends in low places.  Cover crawlspace openings with heavy gauge, rust proof mesh.
4. Don't ignore the pitter-patter of little paws on your roof.  Go investigate! Wildlife that gain access to your attic can chew through electrical wires, cause water damage, and destroy attic insulation.  A good offense is the best defense in this case, see tip #2.
5. Spread the word.  If you see something, share with your neighbors.

Coming in the Spring!!!

We have received quite a few inquires regarding TEAM-PRZADA's Annual Food Drive benefitting the Plano Food Pantry and Second Chance SPCA.  No fear Clients & Friends, it will return....only in the spring of 2014!  Check out the links below for information from previous years, and start collecting those cans!!!
