I had great plans of making a delicious dinner, baking a cake and having an intimate celebration of Eric's 28th birthday, just the four of us. Well, the plan got off track when Eric found a van that he wanted to look at.
*Side note* *We have been looking for a van for like 2 months now with no luck. We are both picky and don't want a car loan, I am not sure you can have both...at least that is what we are finding out. So the great search continues because we both have decided no car loan. We have never had one, and we don't want one now.*
So the van was in Racine, about 25 minutes away, so after Eric got home from work we loaded up the car, and drove down there. The van was in wonderful condition, hardly any miles, 4 years old, and really a great van. The only problem was...see *side note* out of our budget. We were trying to talk ourselves into the car loan thing on the way down, the whole if we work really hard, if we don't spend on this we can pay it off sooner, etc. We got there drove it, and on the way back to the dealership we had this conversation...
Me-You like it?
Me-Yea, me too, but I just can't get over the loan thing, I don't want a loan, I hate owing people money
Eric- Yea, me too, looks like our decision is made
So the hunt continues! But to make it better and to celebrate Eric's birthday, we hit up the Chick-fil-a over by the dealership! It was good, but we both are trying to eat healthy and be healthy, so that didn't really help. Maybe it makes it a little better that I didn't eat the waffle fries, ha! But I did enjoy the sweet tea!
Then we came home to have a little party! Lucy was knocked out from the fun we had driving down there and driving home, so she was at the party in spirit and on baby monitor. We ate cake, opened presents and had fun with the party hats. I loved every single minute of it. Then Molly asked to go to bed, that might have been my favorite part of the night! Just kidding, but it was nice to not have that bedtime fight like usual.
So here are some pictures of our life lately...
Another mini-recital, getting ready for the BIG one!
Lucy's new favorite hang out, since she out grew the bouncy seat!
I let Molly pick out Eric's gifts from the Dollar Spot at Target
and I love her selection for him!
Have a great day! I am hoping the snow melts! Happy Spring!
