making the best of it

We realized going into last weekend that the number of weekends we have left as just the two of us that are free for fun things is countable on one hand. So we promised to take advantage of it.

Friday we used our last, soon-to-expire Muncharoo at a local Italian deli, Cupini's. Total cost of meal: 76 cents. Then we were off to Best Buy to use our $30 in rewards certificates. Being the super exciting couple that we are, we bought an extension cord for our new washer (front-loaders, hurray!), laundry detergent, washer cleaner, Skittles and Junior Mints. Total cost: 35 cents.

Saturday we went on our favorite morning date of Einstein Bagels, took our elderly neighbor shopping and then did four hours of our own errands. We are now those people who have to go to three grocery stores/farmers markets to get everything we want. Snobs! Highlight; Sample woman at Target saw my pregnant belly and said "oh honey, have as many samples as you want." Luckily for me she was sampling carrots.

The weather was perfect, and we have taken to grilling as much as possible.

I planted flowers and discovered landscaping stones hidden underneath soil and mulch. Being the daughter of a soil scientist, I know this does not make for fertile soil.

That night, we went to King and I at Starlight Theater. The musical was good, kettle corn was even better and the seats were way hard. All that proved to be exhausting, and we slept til 11 a.m. Sunday. And then we were super lazy.

 We ended the evening with a goodbye to our current church building, which included an ice cream truck. A good ending to a great, family-of-two weekend.

    If you decide you do need swaddling blankets, I will send you some. I have 1,542 of them and don't use them at all except to play "tent" with Ryle.
