Like most moms, once school gets out I look forward to spending time with my children: vacations, projects, activities ... and then the end of summer approaches and I'm ready for some mommy time. Me time. All about me time.

I have the perfect solution for those mommy me-time blues: Broadway Centre in Downtown Bismarck is your one-stop shop for body, mind and soul.

Pure Skin Aesthetic and Laser Center

Pure Skin Aesthetic and Laser Center, owned by Shelly Botsford, NP, will help you rejuvenate your skin after all the summer sun.

"As mothers we neglect ourselves, and we neglect our skin," Botsford says.

Pure Skin provides a wide range of services, from skin care regimens to prescription medication for skin. Botsford and her team will set up a plan to fit all your skin care wants and needs.

"We understand and evaluate your skin and show you how to improve it," Botsford says. "Your skin is like a dirty window, neglected for years -- and we will make it sparkling clean."

Broadway Grill and Tavern

After pampering your outside, it's time to nourish your inside with a delicious lunch on the patio at Broadway Grill and Tavern. Broadway Grill is the perfect place to kick back and relax with friends for lunch or dinner.

Executive chef Cody Monson and his sous chef and wife, Denise, create tasty selections to revive your taste buds.

Try their apple cheddar salad, a mix of Bibb and romaine lettuce topped with Marcona almonds and a bright, flavorful apple cider vinaigrette. The salad is crunchy, sweet and tart and feels good to eat. I loved the shredded apples cut into thin matchstick strips -- perfect. And the Bibb lettuce, with all of its natural folds and wrinkles, holds the vinaigrette for a tasty bite.

Another original creation from Chef Monson is the Broadway burger. Two grilled, certified Angus beef patties are topped with blue cheese, basil aioli and the star of this super burger: Cabernet-kissed red-onion compote. You would never think these condiments could be friends, but together they make for a rare and delicious combination. One bite and you'll be hooked.
