What an AMAZING weekend! Can you guess what we did?
Our first trip to Kings Island since December, but it feels like forever. It was a nice cool day, and although it was super busy and started to rain as we were leaving, we had an awesome time. We won’t get back there until mid-May, so I’m counting down the days!
Grocery-wise, this week is pretty interesting because I’m carrying over a few of the meals we were supposed to have last week. Thanks to Easter dinner, we had a TON of leftovers so I didn’t cook for like 3 days. #winning Pair that with the fact we’re eating out three times this week.
As a result, I didn’t have to actually buy much to get us through the week. So, I used this opportunity to stock up on some things we’ve been needing for awhile, and now I’m happy. I’m especially excited about the McCafe coffee; I’m a Starbucks girl, but I worked at McDonalds for almost 10 years yet I still love their coffee. I just needed a change, I guess! What’s your favorite coffee brand?
