Cheap Date

Wow! What an exhausting day. It's been a long time since I've been ready for bed this early, but this was a good kind of exhausting as Jeff & I had a date day! :)

Now, some would argue that we don't "need" a date since we are alone together 24/7 (I work from home & Jeff is retired from the military -- he'll be going back to school full-time this fall. I'm so proud!) Anywho, as much as we love our time at home together, we really were in the mood to do something fun (and cheap. LOL)

Tuesdays, our local 2nd run theater does $1 showings all day long. So, we actually went to TWO movies today (grand total $4). We also tried a new restaurant (well, new to us anyway) because we'd purchased a groupon (so with tip, we spent less than $4 for lunch!). In between movies and lunch, we managed to go to WalMart, Sam's Club, and the mall (where we spent $4.50 on candy). Then finally tonight, after the 2nd movie, we stopped at Sonic for an ice cream $6). So, our full blown date day consisting of 2 theater movies, 1 lunch out, 1 stop at the candy store, and ice cream for dessert came to a grand total of $18.50.

We are both so cheap that this kind of adventure is thrilling for us. In fact, we even talked about setting a monthly date where we are allowed $20, and we'll see what kinds of creative ideas we can come up with (though I'm pretty easy, so I'd be happy with dollar movies and ice cream each time. LOL)

Oh, if you are taking notes, we saw both Source Code and Limitless today. Both very good movies that made us think. Jeff & I agreed that we liked Source Code better, but honestly, we didn't feel like we went wrong with either (certainly not for the price!) These would definitely be worth renting when they're on dvd if you like action or sci-fi types of movies (the sci-fi might be a stretch, but it's the best word I can think of to describe them).

That's all for tonight. Maybe this day of fun will get my mojo flowing so that I can bowl you over with this weekend's kit release. ;)

Have a good night!
