Cheap Date Night

30 Dec

Yesterday was my husbands birthday.  We did a little pre-celebrating on Tuesday night with a movie and some late night food.  My husband never admits that we are on a budget, but we are.  We watch what we spend and still are able to have a lot of fun!  I believe you don’t always have to spend $100’s of dollars to have a good time.  Don’t you? 

So the night started off by going to the 5:30 showing of Little Fockers at Chesterfield Galaxy 14 Cinema.  I was pleasantly surprised by the price.  Each ticket only cost $4 each.  $8 for both of us for movie night?  I’ll take it!! 

RUSH HOUR SHOWS —-> Mon – Thurs =$4  What an Awesome Deal!!

Then onto some food.  We thought some Red Robin sounded good.  Our family loves Red Robin, but we do not eat there very much because we feel the prices are a little high for a burger.  You can find good coupons and when a new burger is features it is usually a great deal. 

We got there at the perfect time.  from 3-6 AND 8 until close is HAPPY HOUR!  They had some good deals and good food!  They have $3, $5 or $7 appetizers and drinks for draft beer 16oz. for $2.50 or 22oz. for $3.50.  You can also choose a fruity margarita for $3.50. 

Doug and got the Chili Nachos Reg. $9.99 Happy Hour $5  and the Hot Spicy Wings Reg. $9.99 Happy Hour $7.  Doug drank water and I had (2) 16oz. beers.  The wings were hot and delicious.  The nachos were piled with chili, cheese, chips, sour cream and the best of all guacamole!  I would recommend going their for Happy Hour to anyone!  it was Yummy!!  🙂

Santa’s Surprise!

20 Dec

Santa’s Surprise!

This world is excited with Santa!

We’re told that he loves girls and boys.

And each year he pays them a visit,

Loaded with candies and toys.


Busy elves are his helpers,

Working with Santa every day.

And on the night before Christmas,

Rudolf guides Santa’s sleigh.


But I am excited with Jesus!

I found that he’s just not a tale.

Angels, not elves do his bidding.

He meets all my needs without fail.


He doesn’t just come in December,

He lives in my heart everyday.

He gave me His Name and His power.

I use it whenever I pray.


Everyday’s Christmas with Jesus.

Each day is filled with surprise.

He is both the gift and the giver.

Whatever we lack, He supplies.


This weekend my mom, my daughter and I spent the week back in Iowa where my mother and I grew up.  We had a fun, busy rewarding time.  I enjoyed seeing the smiles and joy from many of my friends and family.  Some I see often and a few I have not seen in years.  It reminds me how important both family and friendships are.  How easy it is to forget to call, email or even text.  I already know my New Year’s Resolution for 2011.  I have already started working on it.  It is to do better with staying in contact with my friends and family.  The smiles I saw this week meant a lot to me and I know my smiles meant a lot to them.  🙂

The Santa Surprise I shared with you was given to me by my mother.  At first I thought it was a cute little Santa poem, but the meaning behind it is so true and very awesome. 

Merry Christmas to everyone who reads this and remember all your friends and family this Christmas and everyday!
