II Chronicles 7:14

If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

Cheap Date

Last night, my mom had the kids over to spend the night so Matt and I decided to take advantage of a kid-free night and go out and do something. It was pretty last minute and we didn't really have time for a nice sit-down dinner and a movie, so we opted for a quick dinner. We got the $5 footlong deal at Subway and drank water. Next stop was GNC for a protein bar to snack on during the movie. (No way were we eating that calorie-loaded popcorn the cinema sells). Once we got to the movies (the $1.50 place) we overheard the guy at the counter say that Monday's are "Family Night" and that as long as you have 3 people, the tickets are only .50 cents. So, instead of paying $3 for our tickets, I just bought an extra one and only paid $1.50 total! ha ha (of course it about killed me to throw away that perfectly good extra ticket!) Lastly, since we didn't splurge on dinner or on popcorn, we went to Braum's for a cone of their Low-Fat Capiccino Chunky Chocolate frozen yogurt. YUM! Sinfully delicious! On the drive home, I started calculating and I think we actually went on a whole date and only spent a little over $10. That's pretty impressive for dinner, a movie with snacks and dessert!!

When we got home we decided we wanted to take some pictures of ourselves so we spent probably 20 minutes in weird positions trying to get a decent picture together on our cell phones. Since I am SO much shorter than him, I had to get on top of the kitchen counter and squat down and that was finally the "winning" shot! ha ha We were in a fit of giggles by the time that was all done, which was a perfect way to set the mood for the rest of the evening. ;o)

Here are a few pics of me and my skinny sexy sweetie that Brooklyn took before we left. Matt insisted on doing a "silly" one!
Here's one of me B. took while we were waiting on Matt to change shoes. He was wearing these really cute orange and brown striped leather flip-flops--but then he remembered he NEVER wears flip-flops to the movie theatre. "You never know what might crawl across your foot" is his reason. He does have a point!
Oh! and BTW, if you were wondering, we went and saw Made of Honor. It was really cute. Very funny and romantic and a total chic flick--but I know Matt enjoyed it even if he'd never admit it in front of his guy friends! :o)
