Suprise Weekend Away

Man, it feels like I have been away forever. And you probably didn't even know I was gone... It's OK. I forgive you. 'Cuz my hubby took me on a getaway weekend for our 10th Anniversary. We didn't spend any money on each other for Christmas, and decided we would do something for our Anniversary. And the hubby decided to make it a surprise, and trick me into thinking we weren't doing anything. Needless to say, I was a little upset when he told me we probably wouldn't be doing anything because we are trying to save $$$. Then, the night before I figured something was up...

Friday, we dropped off my 2 littlest ones with various family, and the two bigger were going to a friend's house after school. The hubby ended up taking me to Chicago via train to a very nice hotel. We stayed until today. We ate at a fancy restaurant, and spend at least a weeks worth of groceries. And we saw the Blueman Group. That was really cool. If you are ever in Chicago, go see it. There was lots of times where you thought you could be picked and taken on stage at any time. But it was cool. We also walked so much that our legs and feet got quite a workout. But we also got to enjoy a quiet weekend together. It was really nice.

So, I will put my menu plan on tomorrow, and also try to figure out how to spend the least amount of money on groceries these next 2 weeks! Man, it's good to be back home!
