Spendy week...Cheap Weekend

February 18th, 2008 at 12:56 am

My good friend from Cali was here for a few days last week. She and I have been friends since we were 12. While she was here we went out to dinner a couple of times and then went wine tasting...we had a blast. The hub paid for dinner one night out of the wood business only one of the meals out came out of the household account. I did treat her to the afternoon of wine tasting and bought her a couple of bottles of wine...but that all came out of my saved, this weekend we ate all meals at home and did not spend much money...actually, all we spent was $4.50 when we went to the movies today. We had gift cards...but by the time we paid for the tickets and got popcorn and soda...we owed $4.50. I wish I could say it was worth it...but I didnt really enjoy the movie (I Am Legend) and $5.75 for a "large" popcorn makes my head spin...but it was the family outing that DH and DD3 wanted--so I wont complain too much.

The household account is still on track..which is a relief/
The past two days have been absolutely GORGEOUS...sunny, 60's...quite nice after months of rain and snow. I am off for President's Day tommorrow...and am sure hoping for more of that sunshine!!!

Tonight...we are bbg'g steaks and I have potatoes in the a yummy meal that will feed 5 for under $10!!

All in all, a great several few days....blessed indeed!

    I am glad to hear you and your friend had a great time. You are truly an inspiration for those of us who tend to splurge on our dinner outings. God Bless.

    PS - I hope the steaks were good!
