Another Frugal Frog Weekend comes to a close!
This weekend has been incredibly low key.
Friday night I worked late and then I came home and grilled up some Paleo Bison Burgers and Sweet Potato Fries. They were delicious!
Then I was the best wife in the world and I baked chocolate chip cookies and watched the Phillies/Cardinals came with Chase. He is from St. Louis and is a DIEHARD fan.
It was a great game and he was VERY happy with the results of the game.
The cost of Friday night Festivities: FREE!
Saturday we had a truly lovely morning! We decided to walk to downtown Bethlehem and attend a Fall Festival! It was so much fun to take an autumnal walk and catch-up!
The Fall Festival was free and there were a lot of fun activities going on downtown!
There was a juggler (that Chase and every three-year-old was positively entranced with)
There was also an alpaca (that was doing everything to avoid me…how rude!)
I got to befriend roughly a million goats! These cuties loved me! I totally want to buy a goat!
My favorite part was the booth full of freshly picked apples:
We bought a peck for less than $5! I ate one on our walk back home and it was amazing!
I love this orchard because they bring their two yellow labs with them everywhere.
Meet Lily and Poppy:
Lily likes to shake your hand upon introduction!
Saturday afternoon we headed to the salon and I got my Hilary Duff haircut:
With tip included this cut set us back $45, which is not too bad, and I LOVE it!
We came home for leftover hodge-podge dinner: Paleo Chili and Sweet Potato Fries.
Then our little brother came over with his cousin to watch Hoodwinked 2:
I actually had a babysitting job last night, so I left the boys to their “Boy’s Night” to play mermaids and princesses with two little girls. It was nice to be able to make a little extra cash, which more than made up for my haircut expenditure.
Chase worked this morning at the hospital, which was A-ok, because I did not get home until after midnight! So I got to have a lazy morning and a nice long 9 mile Sunday morning run.
When Chase came home we had a relaxing Sunday afternoon. We went outside and read and soaked in the summer-ish weather.
I finished the book I was reading, which actually ended up being a wonderful read:
It was a lovely chick-lit book and I just found out that it was made into a Lifetime movie. I am totally going to do everything to get my hands on it!
All day Spaghetti with meat sauce has been cooking in the slow cooker.
It was delicious. I will post the recipe tomorrow! It is both Paleo (served over spaghetti squash) and Non-Paleo friendly (served over noodles).
Now we are watching, Hanna. Basically, it is like the Bourne Identity but instead of Matt Damon, the protagonist is an insanely brilliant 10-year-old girl.
Have you read any good books or seen any great movies? I have a feeling this movie is going to be amazing!
