Food/Beverage

Press Cafe: This place is YUMMO and right on the Trinity with lots of grass for the kiddos to run around.  It is great for breakfast, lunch and dinner! Great drinks too! 

Mama’s Pizza: The best to grab pizza and beer. It isn’t a fancy place but the crust is the BEST. Love that I can go in a ball cap!

McKinley’s: A great lunch spot with the ladies and kids and they have SO many fun desserts!

Club’s

Ridglea Country Club: LOVE how family oriented they are and the kids club is great!

Fort Worth Club: I love their lounge to go grab drinks and have good conversation.

Activities

Z Boaz Park: This is a small quaint park that we love to pop in and swing at. It is clean and surrounded by trees!

Shop

Initially Yours Monogramming: The best place to go when you need to find a gift!

 

What are you favorite Fort Worth spots?

Fantastic Philanthropy: It’s all about the YMCA

I think it is about time to outline another Fantastic Philanthropy! The YMCA has grown close to my heart over the last year.  My husband sits on the local board for one of the branches and I started working out there about a year ago.  We are involved specifically with the Westside and Benbrook YMCA’s.

The YMCA gives scholarships and youth program opportunities. Persons who wish to utilize the services of the Y, but cannot afford them, are given assistance based on their needs. This allows the YMCA to say “Yes!” to those who otherwise would not be able to participate. The YMCA offers a complete continuum of services for all ages.

Here is a great video of Cheryl who has benefitted from a YMCA scholarship:

Beyond the great things they do for the community the staff is great! I am greeted by my name everyday and asked how I am.  The group fitness instructors recognize you and also are very friendly and knowledgeable sources.

I think that goes to show how great the YMCA is not only for individuals but for the community.  Whether you are there to get fit, have children that play sports or are looking for a great philanthropy the YMCA serves all of those and much, much more!

Below are just a few pictures from my YMCA adventures:IMG_3296
