MORE NICE / LOVE

Inspired by the Dills, Ben agreed to take a shot with me at "No-Spending-Month" for February. With all the new books/new semester schedule (i.e. drive-thrus!), it felt like we were spending a lot, here's hoping February will balance it out? I've enjoyed being resourceful, but I'm a tight-wad anyway, so was bound to enjoy it. *I admit we've given in here and there, but it is only our first try...

On Saturday night, we spent hours at the studio until we were kicked out at 11. I still wanted to work on designs on the laptop, and Ben didn't feel like sleeping yet either. The No-Spending idea for late-night fun was the free monthly movie we get from Ben's Blockbuster Rewards program. Ben was so sure that Blockbuster would be closed... (at 11:15 on a Saturday night?) but luckily he trusted me, and we were in-and-out with another disc of The Office episodes. On the way home, Ben tempted, "ya can't watch a movie without a treat!" I think I whined in pain, because I agreed! We don't really have snacks/treats lately at home, but I think we were planning on a few chocolate chips from the Ghirardelli bag.

But we walked in the "foyer" to see a surprise at the foot of our door:

GRANDPA! Just for commenting on my blog, I will personally drive a bag up to Magna because I was bummed to miss out on the last Kneaders Lunch--with Bamba too! :(

My mom is great at finding new treats. :) I need to ask her where she got it...

And Jenny, we were just talking about you in the studio yesterday and how great you are! (Gloria and I, and then Michelle piped in about how she loves being 'internet friends' with you... you are loved)... actually, I don't ever remember Adrian talking about this... my family are just licorice fans...
