Meal Plan 5/12

Standard

A rare occurrence is happening over here this week, a date night out! Not just do we never go on dates but we also never go out to eat. For one, eating out is expensive and not as healthy. But also, we don’t use babysitters unless my mom is in town. This week Dave’s parents are in town. We have never left the girls with them alone, but they will be fine and spoiled I’m sure. Dave and I are going to try out a new Indian restaurant in town. Spicy Indian food isnt really kid friendly either so it will hopefully be a good date night option.

Alyssa also graduates from preschool this week (and Kindergarten in 2 weeks since I homeschooled her). She has a little ceremony Tuesday night, so we may do some celebrating of sorts!

    • Oh yes, we have gone on maybe 5 dates since I had Alyssa almost 5 years ago. Given my husband has been deployed for 3 of those years, 5 dates in 2 years is still pathetic! Haha
