Today was the first day of spring break for my boys. It was nice to be able to sleep in a little bit and then relax for a while knowing we had no where to go. I actually got some cleaning done while the boys played outside most of the day. We have horse riding this afternoon and then I think we will do a movie night! I am feeling a little more relaxed than normal today…I guess I just needed a day where I could work at my own pace and not run from place to place like a crazy woman!
I am not sure what we all we will do this coming week. We had such a good time when we went to Chattanooga a few months ago, we are considering heading up there for a quick 3 or 4 day trip. Jake has requested that we go to the movies to watch the Lorax and Jeb would just be happy if I let him play outside from sun up until sun down! I am sure the week will fly by but hopefully we can pack in as much fun as possible with a few moments of relaxation.
As for my shopping adventures this week, I did manage to get to Publix once last weekend and then again earlier this week. Thanks to a wonderful coupon buddy I got my hands on a few of those $2 Publix pork coupons. Then I get to the store to find a HUGE stack had been put out at the Aprons station. So I managed to grab 6 packages for next to nothing! Check out my Publix weekly totals for the week –
