5 kids

This was from last Friday. After school we went to go sled down this huge grassy hill but it was still too wet, so the sleds would not budge an INCH. So we played on the playground nearby instead.

And then we went for ice cream, since the kids had several free cone tokens from a gourmet ice cream shop. They thought it was completely awesome. And so did I, since it was free.

Andy and I went to a Christmas concert last night and since it was free, we had Drew and Madeline come with us. We enjoyed it but the kids were more like “this is soooo looooong!” and “is it almost over yet???” and “I’m booooooored!!!”

Culture, people, culture.

We went to pick the little girls up at my sisters’ apartment and they had all walked down to the gas station for candy. Adelaide walked out munching on a push-pop and chirped “hi guys! did you have fun?!” Andy and I had a good chuckle over that one… here Drew and Madeline were subjected to a long boring evening (to them) only to go pick up their little sister and she’s been playing, watching movies, and getting candy and then asks them if they had fun.

(She did share a little.)

work it

When you’re broke, you get creative. Especially for dates.

My sisters had watched the kids last weekend so we could use a gift card we had for Outback. On our receipt was a “take a survey, get a free bloomin’ onion” code, which of course we did. So yesterday we went back for our free onion, and there was $12 left on our gift card. The other two appetizers we ordered rang up to $11.57. I just had to laugh. It was more than enough food to call ‘dinner.’ And our receipt printed another free onion survey code. Gotta love all the free.

So then we ran a few errands and stopped by Panera for a free pastry I had on my Panera rewards card. (If you don’t have one, you totally should!) The girl threw in a free crinkle cookie as a promotion sample, since they’ll start selling them next week. She had no idea my hubby was waiting in the car. Perfect!

And then we (YES, WE DID) went to Chick-Fil-A and traded in two kids meal books (unopened) for free child-size ice dreams. (And then giggled all the way out of the parking lot.)


Just a regular ol’ Tuesday?

Drew went home with a friend after school yesterday so the girls and I had a little tea party.

When he got home we went for dinner at CFA (and what we won’t do for a little free food!):


Arianna’s birthday is in two days. Can you believe it?!

Yesterday we dashed off to a (previously unplanned) day at the zoo. We had some free passes sitting around waiting for such a gorgeous day.

My mom’s birthday is in three days so two of my girls and I took her out for tea before she left.
