Who loves Sweet Arleen’s cupcakes?  We do!  For the rest of July they have a BOGO offer for Plano Area Moms – buy a cupcake and get one free! (Limit one free cupcake per visit). They are also running a social media contest through this Friday, July 24th – take a picture in front of the Sweet Arleen’s cupcake, post on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter, tag them and use the ‪#‎sweetarleensplano tag so they can find your entry (make sure you post publicly, so they can see it).  One winner will get a $25 gift card!  So, what’s it going to be?  Vanilla with chocolate fudge, chocolate marshmallow, peanut butter with dark chocolate fudge, mocha truffle, apple pie, or something else?  Dang….I’m getting hungry!  Visit their website for hours and other details (they even deliver!)


If you golf (or want to learn) you don’t want to miss this FREE event at TopGolf Allen!  It’s this Wednesday,  July 22nd from 2-4pm: Mom’s Day and Summer Academy.  Moms will get to enjoy an afternoon of play, relaxation, games, refreshments and food while the kids get to experience a taste of TopGolf’s Summer Academy! This fun golf program is for kids 6 to 12 years old and it’s filled with all of the components that make up the great game of golf – chipping, putting and full swing plus rules and etiquette.  Your kids will learn a little of everything they need to know about the game of golf, and have fun at the same time.  It’s free, you just need to register here.  Never been to TopGolf?  Check out the PAM Review of their The Colony location.
