I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter weekend! Over here we celebrated Easter at church, and the rest of the weekend was very relaxing. It was nice to not have set plans this weekend especially since past weekends have been jam packed.
For lunch yesterday we had Thai food! It really hit the spot because we both haven’t had Thai food in a loooong while.
We ordered some Thai Iced Teas…
Pad See Ew:
and Green Curry with Chicken:
We did come to a conclusion after this weekend ended though. WE NEED TO STOP EATING OUT! Why is it so easy to eat out? Just this past weekend we ate at this Thai restaurant, Dickey’s BBQ, and a burger place called Jack’s Prime. One meal out can easily total to $30, which can really add up.
So our conclusion? To really, really, really make an effort to eat out only ONCE a week. Let’s see if we can do it!
Last night I stayed up waaaay too late reading this:
This is one of my favorite books, EVER. I read this first when I was in Middle School and after that many MANY times. But then I ended up giving this book away, along with ALL of my favorite childhood books, which is one of the biggest regrets of my life (melodramatic much?). I have this habit of throwing/giving away anything I don’t need. I HATE clutter, and hated it even as a kid.
So of course, as I became a foolish teenager, I thought, “I don’t need these books anymore! I’ve waaay outgrown them now!” and I gave my whole collection away. Foolish, foolish, foolish.
But slowly, slowly I am trying to build up my childhood collection again. I recently repurchased a couple other childhood favorites:
Probably another ALL-TIME favorite.
And another favorite classic. Ahhh, memories. I’m hoping to get the whole collection again.
I love the idea of Kindles and iPads (and totally want one for myself), but for childhood books (and cookbooks), I’m all about the real deal. I mean, I hope my own kids will one day read these same classics and I wouldn’t want them to read it from a Kindle or iPad! So repurchasing these books is totally an investment. =) (I’m trying to make myself feel better after giving away tons and tons of childhood classics. SIGH.)
What were your favorite books growing up? How many times do you usually eat our per week?
