So we all know that this Friday is Valentines Day which is pretty cool that it starts the weekend off nice. I've said it many times before, Todd and I are on somewhat tight budget right now. We are actually still paying off some bills we acquired while paying for wedding plus we are seriously trying to save up to move into a house this summer. Moves are expensive with deposits and all else so every penny counts. To add to this, we are also planning a Harley trip to Sturgis with our riding group and so there ya go. Money money money! Y'all might say- is the trip really necessary when you need money for other things. The answer is absolutely! Todd and I work very hard and have stressful jobs at times. Having a vacation or trip to release some of that stress is crucial. Todd usually goes on a few weekend rides with his buds to Arkansas , Big Bend, or wherever a few times a year. Sturgis will be THE trip for the group this year. I'll talk about Sturgis more as we get closer.
Let's go back and talk about Valentines. It drives me crazy that so many restaurants come up with a set menu with fixed prices. This may sound bratty but I want what I want! Let me order what I want and I don't want to pay 10$ more just because it's valentines. Luckily for Todd, I'm a serious cheap date. Todd is so awesome in fact that he truly doesn't mind celebrating Valentines. I gave him stink eye yesterday and told him NOT to have flowers delivered to office. To me that seems expensive plus fortunately I get to work from home on Fridays so coworkers wouldn't see it anyway. I suggested a package of tulips from local grocery store that are $7.99 and beautiful.
We have this little dive taco shop down the street called El taco H and they are cheap and delicious! I would be so happy to have dinner there and then maybe swing by DQ drive thru and get a blizzard.
I am excited that we our signed up for an iMarriage group class this Saturday at our church. It's an all day event that includes lunch and workbook and several couples are signed up. I believe that any tips, encouragement , prayers and real expectations are needed for any marriage. It was cool that Todd looked at me at same time I turned to him when our pastor mentioned the workshop. Being in new marriage , I'm ready to learn. Stay tuned and I'll let y'all know how it went next week!
Most likely I won't post tomorrow so I'll just say it now- HAPPY VALENTINES DAY! Sending hugs to all of you!
