Thankful.Monday, June 25, 2012
This past weekend was a nice and relaxed one. Rarely does it happen where we aren't venturing off somewhere or running in the rat race of our everyday life. Sometimes you need to decompress, do nothing and just take t h i n g s s l o w .
This is a mini list of my weekend adventures.
1. Hung out with my husband in our living room and had a few Kahlua mudslides while our little man was fast asleep. We NEVER get to do this because the little one always wants us to go to bed when he does. We had a great time chatting without any distractions, including the television!
2. I got to sleep in! Other Moms can probably relate to me on this one that there is no way you can sleep in until 9:30A.M. on any given day with a young child. Right? Well, I did and I got to snuggle my little boy at the same time. I love when I can do this! There's nothing else quite like it in the world.
3. I made a list of groceries we needed. I figured if I made a list that I would go to the store and only buy what is on the list. I always tend to end up with more than I went in for and that means more money is spent on things that are not necessary. While on my way to the grocery store I just happened to be driving by Aldi. I've only been there once before so I thought that maybe I should try it out again as it's been years since I've gone. What an experience it was! The store was jam packed with people and you literally had to stay going with the flow of traffic to get through the store. I pulled out my handy little list and was able to surprisingly get all but 4-5 things on it. My normal essentials from our regular grocery store are never under $100 so I was real surprised at checkout when the clerk told me $39.99. I couldn't believe it! I guess the non ease of getting through the aisles more than made up for the total of my groceries.
4. French press coffee. That is all! MMMMM!
For these little things, I am thankful. I'm also thankful for a great weekend. If I could share with you 4 tips from my weekend, it would be these.
