Weekend Update : House guest and ....well thats about it

Hey Lovelies!

Once again its time for me to tell you about my weekend and link up with Sami. You know...what we lifestyle bloggers do on Mondays. Maybe I should start doing a psychic weekend post on Fridays. You know. Just to switch it up.

This weekend my 'sister' Lauren came to stay with us while she was auditioning. I say 'sister' because she has been my best friend for 21 years. Yep... she's the other part of the Amanda friendship. She moved to Columbus the year after I did and I met her at a dinner after church. I walked up, took her hand and apparently told her 'Hi, I'm Whitney and we're going to be best friends!', and so we were.

Because if you can't do break light duck face selfies with your best friend......

Anyway, she's a super talented singer and just graduated with her Master's in vocal pedagogy. (She's an opera singer.) So we hung out and caught up and introduced her friend, who also came to audition, to some great Ohio things. Like Graeter's ice cream. Jeni's ice cream., Skyline Chilli, and Donato's pizza. (There is so much more than that, but we only had a weekend.)

Saturday night we went to see the new Star Trek movie, which I'll review for you guys on Wednesday. (Yep, Mani and a Movie post coming your way folks!)

I just had to show you what Boomer wore to the movies........

All in all it was a really fun weekend. Sunday I did a little grocery shopping. I've challenged myself to not eat out at all this week. Which includes packing lunches for myself and Boomer. I haven't exactly shared with Boomer that there won't be McDonald's this week. Honestly... I'm scared to. I just know we need to eat healthier, and that starts with the adult in the house. Yes, that's me. I know sometimes its hard to tell.

Oh yeah. This happened Sunday.

I'm so sweaty that my headphones are reflected off my neck.....ewwwwww

Look who is trying to get her fit on!

You'll find that fixing meals every day will put more money in your pockets but also once you get in the habit of it you wonn't even think to eat out. We used to eat out a ton an now I cook 3 meals a day I couldnt tell you the last time we ordered food from a fast food place that wasn't a drink yanno?

She's an opera singer? that's pretty amazing right there!

I think you should look into eMeals. For $60 a year or $7 per month you can get a week's worth of dinners. You can choose 2 for you and Boomer and also can select Clean Eating, Slow Cooker, Vegetarian food styles. You can indicate your preferred store and get extra savings with coupons. You do save money when you have a plan. There is also that YNAB thang you know too... Praying for sofas!
