Five Things Friday

Happy Friday, Everyone! I thought I'd throw out some random rambles for you today. :)

1. Yay! It's the weekend! Tim and I have a date night planned tonight. My mom is coming to town and she offered to stay home and hang out with Kaydin so Tim and I can get out of the house together without a 7 year old in tow. Kaydin and I's favorite babysitter-- her grammy and FREE!! :)

2. Mom is in town this weekend because Josh's fiance, Kerstin, is coming with all of her bridesmaids and the mothers to try on dresses. I'm a bridesmaid and Kaydin is a flower girl so we both get to try on dresses tomorrow, too. We're all pretty excited!

3. I've been on a tea kick lately. I still love my Celestial Sleepytime tea at night, but I've also been drinking a cup or two during the day at work. It pairs perfectly with the crazy cold temps we keep having this winter. This is a new favorite!

4. I put myself on a tightened grocery budget for the month and only allotted $100 for groceries. I cut back and try to spend as less as possible every January and did just fine this month. I still have about $25 left. This will allow some produce for next week before the month is up. I do this to use up some of what I already have on hand in the cupboards and freezer. I took inventory and came up with so many things to make with (mostly) only stuff I already have. I didn't make it too far into my list of meals so I think I might restrict my February grocery budget, too. I'll try and document a little better and show you what I buy and make for the month.

5. Don't forget to enter the the Detour SMART bar giveaway. Finally, a clean protein bar!

Do you have any fun plans for the weekend?
