Hey hey, good morning! Happy Monday 🙂 How was your weekend?
Ours was great! And kind of boring. I think I’m going a little stir crazy and getting (even more) antsy for warm weather. Recently my husband and I redid our budget in hopes to pay down some of our student loan debt. I went to a stupidly expensive school and feel like I may never see my loans go away but by cutting out our excess spending we’re hoping to get rid of some of the smaller ones soon!
Unfortunately it makes the bad weather days feel that much longer. We are skipping out on a lot of our normal activities like play places for L, trips to the Children’s museums, and dining out. Instead we’re spending a lot more time indoors or getting creative finding cheap things to do with L.
Saturday With The Easter Bunny
After the rain and sleet slowed down Saturday we took L to meet the Easter bunny and it was hilarious! We went to Colonial Candies, a nearby candy shoppe that has an Easter bunny available for free photo ops. As soon as we walked in my husband and I both commented how frightening the bunny was and knew immediately L would not cooperate but we still tried! We watched a little boy sit on the bunny’s lap and cheese it up for mom and dad, waving and smiling like crazy. Once it was L’s turn we sat him down and he screamed immediately fighting to get away! Poor kid.
After we got home we let L go to town on his chocolate lollipop and he ate some cream cheese frosting from a recipe I’ll be sharing this week. Probably wasn’t the best idea as it was nearly 5 pm! The sugar high ensued and L became a maniac, running all over the house and screeching as loud as he could. It was pretty funny! He then had an epic meltdown once I told him no more frosting and we all got ready for bed.
Sunday was spent getting in a good workout at the gym, playing outside, and getting ready for the week ahead. The weather was beautiful with temps in the mid 50’s and warm, sunny skies so we hit up the park for an hour or so. It was packed with kids all running about, everyone so happy to be getting some fresh air!
The weekend ended with dinner on the grill at my mother-in-law’s after which she offered to keep L overnight! We figured it was a great idea since it was almost his bedtime and she watches him Monday while we work anyway. We took advantage of the free night and stopped for ice cream on the way home at Uhlmans. The place was packed and it was oh so good.
