We're halfway through March, and sticking to our plan. We almost were derailed yesterday, but as it worked out, we kept to our plan of eating at home unless we had . My sister came into town with her boyfriend, and I "treated" them to lunch-thanks to a mystery shopped lunch. It was an easy meal, easy report (considering I've done a few for the same company already), and a nice treat. After lunch we took the boys to the zoo-they were in heaven, since it was their second zoo trip in three days. We came home for dinner, and R and I planned on going out. We didn't leave though until 6pm, and given my sister wanted to be on the road at 8pm (they planned on staying in Anaheim last night, and hitting Disney first thing this morning), we knew we didn't have much time. We scoped out our favorite spots-they were all packed, and had at least a 25 minute wait. Fine with me, I didn't want to spend money, but was willing to make a sacrifice so that we could have a much needed date night. We decided to window shop at Marshalls (free!), and then came home. The one upside to Auntie Steph and Daniel being here-the boys were tuckered out and fell asleep at a decent hour! Yay for small favors!

We woke up early, and puttered around the house. We headed into V town, bought our staples for the week at Costco ($21!), and then over to a birthday party. It was nice and relaxed at someone's home, and the kids had a nice time-they all fell asleep at 4:45 on the way home, and we let them sleep until 6 since R made yummy tri tip for dinner. Since naptime was screwed up, the boys stayed up until 9-but they were still tired, and fell asleep w/o a problem. Now, I'm off to figure out the grocery deals for the week, and make a game plan for tomorrow. I'm hoping the weather is good so we can head to the park, maybe bring a picnic lunch with us. That would be nice. Hope everyone is having a great weekend too!
