Did you have a great weekend? Mine was absolutely amazing. We had some quality time at the museum Saturday, all three of us, and celebrated my birthday Sunday night at Golden Corral, where I ate way too much. I may have bugged John all week and waved my free buffet coupon in his face until he relented. Today I’m celebrating with a free smoothie from Tropical Smoothie!
This week is a light dinner week, because we’re taking a trip to Cedar Point over the weekend and won’t need dinner Saturday! I tried to find cheap dinners that didn’t make a lot, because I don’t want any leftovers hanging around when we leave. Since we’ll be coming home Monday, there won’t be a grocery post next week because I’ll be doing all my shopping Monday night! That should be interesting. Since I didn’t have to spend a lot on dinners, I had leftover money to enjoy at Ollie’s and bought some snacks and treats.
