This weekend can be summed up with one word: food.
OK actually two words: food and TV.
Recently this month we had two pretty big financial hits. Luke was in a bit of a wreck (he is ok) and completely messed up the side of his car.
And around the time of his wreck my car decided to remind me that it needs a new timing belt. My dad has been telling me for about the past year that I needed to get a new belt, so I got plenty of cute belts to go in my closet, but never bought a new belt for my car. And now perfect timing it needs one ASAP.
Two birds with one stone, or something like that.
So, we have decided to give our rock star lifestyle a break for the rest of the month and try and not to spend any extra money.
Please don't remind me that it is the middle of the month and not the end.
We usually use the weekends to eat out and go to the movies but with our new scaled-back lifestyle we knew we needed to eat at home.
Friday night we had Chicken Parmesan and Italian Salad with a bottle of wine and a mini cheesecake that Luke surprised me with.
It was a nice little affordable feast from home.
We watched The Proposal which I absolutely love. It makes me laugh out loud every time!
Saturday I tried another new recipe that I found out Brown Eyed Girl's blog. Cheese Chicken Corn Chow, it was really good.
Then I spent pretty much the whole entire day watching Say Yes To The Dress. There was a marathon on TLC so, I spent my day with some yummy soup and pretty dresses. Luke was around but he wasn't too interested in the dress show.
The ONLY part I miss about wedding planning is trying on all the dresses. I am completely 100% satisfied with my dress choice but I only tried on about 3 or 4 dresses before I found mine and I think it would be fun to go back and try more dresses.
Also, I wish we could have a National "Wear Your Wedding Dress Day" or possibly wedding dress parties where everybody wears their dress. Just an idea.
Our dresses are much too pretty to be sitting in bags in the closet!
Saturday night Luke actually pulled me away from SYTTD to go to the pumpkin patch, but by the time we got there it was closed, so back to the TV I went.
Did I mention I had 3 pieces of cheesecake on Saturday? Cause I did.
Sunday has been pretty much the same thing, except I did clean the house, so I feel a bit productive.
Luke has ventured out to a music gig. I didn't feel like going so its just me and my friend cheesecake:
In fact, I think that my friend is calling my name right now.
Hope you all had a great weekend!!!
