|We loved dressing up for free food!|
|Isn't she the cutest cow you have ever seen?|
Our entire family dressed up like cows for Chick-Fil-A day. This was the first time we have dressed up and it was SO MUCH FUN! Such a fun memory to make with our family. Each family member (including the baby) received a free meal and a drink. Evangeline absolutely loved the cow that walked around. Every time the cow walked away she would get sad. How funny!
|My sister did a great job showing her miniature horse.|
I carpooled with my family to attend two horse shows this week. My brother and sister showed on different days which meant 2 day trips last week! I packed a cooler filled with lunch, drinks, and snacks. Random fact: Whenever we take a cooler along in the car I add a teether or two for Evangeline.
We had friends over for dinner last week. Since Eva is still a baby I made a simple meal- just a simple casserole of Chicken Almondine and Peach Cobbler. Our friends brought along a Caesar salad. It was just delightful catching up with good friends we hadn't seen in a few months.
I finally purchased a portable dishwasher! Happy dance! After living in our current house for almost 3 years I decided I wanted to try a portable dishwasher. I cook 3 meals a day and I feel like I am spending a long time washing dishes everyday when I could be using that time for other things. Originally I planned on purchasing a new dishwasher but after reality set in I realized that I could purchase a used dishwasher that had only been used once for about 1/5 the price of a new one (including gas). I feel like singing when I load it!
|Evangeline had a great time hiking on Daddy's back.|
|Elijah made it all 2.5 miles!|
We went to the library again and checked out a large tote bag full of books, movies, and audio books.
I sold two books on amazon. I really need to weed through the rest of my books by the end of the month.
I spent a few hours working in the garden. At this point I have now given up on planting anything else in the remaining two rows. The weeds are just too bad to fight. :(
I went swimming with Eva and Eli at my parent's house.
Has anyone had success with Ritz dye? I have a hot pink skirt that has faded that I would love to revive. Is it worth a shot?
What frugal things did you do last week?
