We went out for Hudson Restaurant Week on Friday and this happened...
Two stuffed bellies,
Two hours spent philosophizing in French,
Two fuzzy heads,
And what felt like two hundred dollars later,
The two of us drove home.
The rest of the weekend was spent baking cookies, watching cute French romantic comedies, lunching with old friends, playing Wii tennis, and cuddling. My version of bliss.
This week will be a busy one, filled with book club (though I haven't read the book), a dinner with the boyfriend and out-of-country guests, and wedding dress shopping with a special friend. I'm looking forward to it all! However, after such a lavish weekend, the wallet is a little light.
This week's challenge is to keep as many pennies in my pocket as possible. We'll see how it goes.
What are your best tricks for staying on a budget?
