Where Did The Weekend Go?

This was our first weekend in our old hometown so we went to some of our favorite places. And as if that didn't keep us busy enough...iKeith went to see The Expendables with his brothers and I went to see Eat Pray Love with my friend Denise from Eat Play Love. The movie was everything I hoped it would be and I loved every minute of it...even with a sick child sitting behind me and a woman eating left over chinese food in front of me.

Twisters is one of our favorite places from the last time we lived here.

Mallory wore her glasses all day...inside and outside.

A trip to Lowe's to buy a little air conditioner for my room...because iKeith loves me so much and wants me to be able to sleep.  

Stopped by Target to get a couple pairs of pants and shorts for Mallory because she just had a growth spurt! And new shoes...because she's outgrown those too.  Opps.  Left her shoes at the store.  We'll be going back today to re-buy them.

Then it was happy hour at The Yard House....

Onion Ring Tower! 

Yeah...this budget thing is working out great!

We need to go to money rehab.

  1. Oh dear...I always push those "we shouldn't be spending this money" thoughts to the back of my mind.....

  9. Yes, but think of the money we saved going to that theater! I think the people around us could be a post all to itself... Thanks for going with me!

  13. Oh yum, that Tower looks fabulous (and I just had breakfast).

    I watched The Expendables with the husband on Sunday (it was good for a Sly Stallone pic) but I'm dying to see Eat, Pray, Love but it's not out yet here.

  14. Don't think of it as breaking your budget, think of it as a one-time, 1st weekend home celebration.

  15. I always sneak in the snacks and will continue to do so until my kid learns she should be embarrassed by me. Anyway, I hate fountain soda and like to pop open a cold can of Diet Doctor Pepper during the opening credits.

  16. Took a peek at your money rehab post. Thanks for sharing that link for tracking your spending! I can't wait to get started!

  17. You all look happy.
    As for budget & money rehab, well you all need to get out once in a while, I remember a time when I couldn't even get myself an apple at the grocery store because it was not in the budget.
    It will get better. Hugs your way.
    (I'm trying to catch up on your blog, so you'll see lots of comments. It's been a l-o-n-g summer!)
