Just another day at the park with Brooke’s posse. She had a whole park at her disposal and yet she still prefers playing with my keys.
Brooke likes to take her nap now right around the time that Billy gets home from work and when we eat dinner so I do cool things like hang out on the deck and take a picture of B$ as he is walking by.
He requested spaghetti and meatballs for dinner last night and I added to that request some garlic bread (one piece is never enough) and steamed carrots).
We finished and then Brooker woke up. She now claps about 70% of the time that she is awake. I am worried about her hands that they may blister. Another new thing is that she wakes up very sweaty from her naps…
For weeks Billy and I have been talking about trying Wendy’s new Frosty Waffle Cones so we decided to walk there last night to grab some. I underestimated how far away Wendy’s was from us. I will run for miles every day but heaven forbid I go for a long walk. Maybe I just really wanted my ice cream and it was taking too long to get to it.
I went with vanilla on the bottom and chocolate on top so that I could really tell you what I thought of the cone because you all know that most of this blog’s content is about ice cream. They were $1.50 each and delicious. I liked the vanilla way better than the chocolate.
Speaking of money, I have officially made a goal to finally stick to a grocery budget. Not that I go overboard or anything but I don’t ever keep track of how much we spend on groceries and I think we could definitely save money if I paid more attention to it. When we lived in Utah we were very mindful of our food budget (plus we ate a lot of our meals at my mom’s house) so I want to get back to that.
The only problem is that I really don’t know how much to set aside for food (eating out budget is different… we eat out together about once a week and then I usually go out to lunch once a week). This month will be kind of an experimental month where I stick to not buying random extra things, buy things on sale and keep track of every thing that we spend for the month so that I can make a goal for July to stick to. Make sense? (PPS I have a separate donut category outside of the grocery budget)
Do you have a monthly grocery budget? Are you good at sticking to your budget?
If you don’t mind sharing how much your grocery budget is and for how many people that might be helpful for people like me that are clueless:)
Who else has tried Wendy’s Waffle Cones? Any Frosty fans?
