Look, we basically tell you what we think of ourselves with our URL. Yet again, we’ve got others that have no problem backing that lofty claim of ours up.

Our founder and CEO, the lovely and not-yet 40 year-old Carrie Layne was honored and recognized this past week in a ceremony at the House of Blues in Dallas as one of this year’s Dallas Business Journal’s 40 under 40 class.

The magazine says that this year’s class recognizes “executives and entrepreneurs who are at the top of their game professionally, and personally have demonstrated a commitment to the North Texas community.” We here at best of Texas HQ can certainly attest to the fact that Carrie belongs in this class.

Go here to read the full feature and to see what heady comapny Carrie finds herself in this year.



For those of us with small kids, or even not-so-small kids, the Saturday birthday party can be a bit of a beating and can absolutely throw a wrench into any well-meaning plans of getting something productive around the house done (even if we were likely never going to get to that pesky project, anyways.) Screaming kids, ringing video games, creepy, large singing mice and general sensory overload can really bring a frown to a parent’s face, if we’re all being honest here (we are, aren’t we?).

For many of us possessors of the BestBuzz App, we have found a different, and less stressful way of helping our children celebrate birthdays, whether it be their own, or the celebration for one of their tiny friends: Bounce U.

The well-trained staff of each Bounce U knows how to operate the well-oiled party machine they possess, ultimately taking the headache of having to handle everything away from the parent. Imagine, just hanging out while your kids bounce and play in the indoor, bounce-eriffic playrooms before heading to another party room for pizza, goodies and presents – all in the span of a quick hour or two.

Be sure to use the BestBuzz App to it’s fullest and you can see what I mean for yourself. Go to http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/bestbuzz/id405561566?mt=8 to read more about the App and download it FOR FREE, for yourself.
