We are so lazy on week nights that we have together and usually end up doing a date night on Tuesday rather than Friday. You should all try this because you never have to wait and usually restaurants have good drink specials too! We headed to La Hacienda Ranch for fajitas and margs!
They sat us in the most ginormous booth possible- I decided the hostess just wanted us to snuggle during dinner <—– Duane did not agree and was more interested in the chips… (ok it was me that really wanted the chips- they are just SO good here!)
We stuffed our faces and talked about how we should have gone to the gym before dinner. The food was excellent as always and points for the service- the waiter was amazing.
After dinner we did a few chores around the house (does it ever end?) and then found some random show about snakes taking over the U.S. It was totally terrifying and I am so happy that I do not live in Florida!
I made a list of things that I am currently loving right now so here they are!
1. Maxi Dresses
Umm hello this is basically like wearing PJ’s all day but it looks like a dress. I love whoever invented these and made them popular- I also don’t have to shave to wear them! <— just a little Thursday TMI for ya! I bought a few for our honeymoon and some long skirts I foresee this being my entire wardrobe all summer long. They are so appropriate for any occasion and can be dress up with jewelry or a scarf. I have a black one that gets the most wear but I am digging this one from Kohls.
2. Flavored Water
Since I started my garden and have lots of fresh herbs on hand I really have been trying to spice up my water so I can drink more. I love regular water but sometimes I get sided tracked and forget to guzzle the good stuff. The flavor taste better right when I make it (to me) so I end up drink it all and not forgetting! My favorite combos right know are Strawberry & Basil (pictured) and Lime & Mint!
3. Elk Antlers
No I am not cooking some weird dish this week they are for the dogs! I was talking to my MIL about how much Bogey eats everything hats, sunglasses, remotes, bras, socks- I mean EVERYTHING.. The little stinker just wants to chew however regular rawhide bones (the big ones) might last us the night. The rawhide also doesn’t work for sensitive tummy Arnold- he gets SICK for days.
So I stopped buying rawhide bones because they don’t last, are expensive and I got really tired of cleaning up stomach continents! But Bogey still wanted to chew on everything- ugh! She suggested getting him an Elk Horn and seeing how he does with that! D bought three of them- NOT cheap but so far he has really liked it and no tummy issues from Arnold. Now if I could only get Sophia to stop hiding them all in the couch…
I know, I know I would love to be one of those ladies on Extreme Couponing but I just don’t think that will ever be us. I can see how having 47 bottles of laundry soap would be useful but the 120 packets of potatoes ugh gross. All couponing for food isn’t bad however! I found the Kroger app and many times they have their organic brand on sale and always seem to have some type of fruit and veggies marked down. I have really started to look at the weekly flyer and find when chicken is on sale then buy 2 or 3 packages then freeze part of them! D really likes cereal so I buy him a ton when they are buy one get one free! I also try to seek out coupons like toilet paper and paper towels- things we will always need! I wait until they are on sale then find a coupon as well- boom instant savings! When I do these simple little things they really seem to add up- I saved over 25 dollars on my last trip.
What are you loving this week?
Tell me your Thursday workout!
