Well, who says you can’t have fun and not spend a bit of money in the process? Dearest Husband, dear sonny boy and I took a window shopping trip up to the mall today. Now hold on, I know what you’re thinking. You can go to the mall and actually not need to get anything from there. It is possible! Well, we did quite a series of window shopping….Hubby checking out new kicks that he may want in the future while I looked at the newest outfits for winter and decidedly realized I’m too old for the stores I used to frequent. Alas, sonny boy enjoyed a soy joy bar(yuck!) while mom and dad treated themselves to pretzels from Auntie Anne’s. We ran around the whole mall and bought NOTHING. A frugal mom’s greatest wish.
Since we’ve been doing so well, I convinced hubby to get a cheap bottle of bubbly for us to enjoy during dinner(more on dinner in the next post). $5 later (yes, $5! From a discount liquor store nearby) we were home enjoying mango bellinis and a vegetarian dinner! So, frugal hat was satisfied today. Housewife hat….well, at least I cooked and started the dishwasher….
