Cider Mill

My husband and I had been planning on going to a cider mill today for a good few weeks. Even though both of us were not feeling that great, and the weather was crummy, we still went.
We enjoyed a great petting zoo, and a hay ride. Then we headed over to the store area for cider and donuts. But right when we were about to leave, it started to POUR! Needless to say we got soaking wet going back to the car.
On the bright side, because the weather was so bad, they told us that we can go back next time for free! I think we will be laughing about our adventure today for many days to come.

Very UnFrugal Friday

Tonight my wonderful husband and I decided to go to Royal Oak for window shopping and dinner. We had a great, and cheap time. (We are really trying to watch what we are spending)

After dinner I HAD to go to Astoria Pastry Shop . My husband picked out a great looking chocolate mousse, (pictured left) but I had no idea what I wanted.

Then I spotted some chocolates that were only $1.59 a pound!(pictured right) I thought this was going to be a great bargain. SO I ordered a 1/2 pound thinking it was going to be less than a dollar. However, when we got rang up, our total was $11!!!! As it turned out the chocolate were $11.59 a pound, not $1.59. All I can say is there goes frugal Friday!

Frugal Fridays

I have an idea for frugal makeup. All though I rarely wear makeup, I did find a great bargain.

E.l.f sells all of their cosmetic for just a dollar. That's right! Just one dollar!!! I have many of their products and they work great!

You can buy them on their website, or you can get them at Target. However, you have to look in the travel section to find them!

I hope this has been helpful!

Sick, Sick, Sick

Somehow yesterday I came down with a horrible cold, that made me unable to breath. I did not go to work, and spent a lot of time around hot water.

However, I did get a lot of baking done. The thing I'm most proud of is making apple sauce. It was so easy and so good!



First Post!

So, I have my own blog! I thought I had to get in the fun that everyone else was having!
