Frugal Frog Weekend Recap

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!


About paleorunnergirl

I am obsessed with cooking, running and reading! I teach American Literature at the college level, but enjoy books of all kind! After years of GI issues and being prescribed numerous medications, I found perfection in eating Paleo! I am no longer bloated, nauseous, or miserable on a daily basis. I have delved into creating Paleo recipe-making and embracing an active and playful life!

  1. Slow cooker spaghetti?! I can’t wait for the recipe!

  2. So many good things happening around your area this weekend- that fall festival sounds AWESOME! As well as playing mermaids & princesses! ❤ that!!!!
    I think I'll have to look into that book, I need a read like that!
    I loved 'Something Borrowed' & 'Something Blue' they were great reads! I haven't been to a movie in AGES! I watched Hoodwinked for the first time a few months ago!

  3. Weekends during the fall are the best because there are so many fun festivals–meaning free entertainment! I love, love, LOVE, the new haircut!!

    I’m currently reading the book “20 Times A Lady.” It’s good so far, but it’s taking me a while to read it. I’ll definitely post about it when I finish; and you know me, chick-lit books only!

  4. Great weekend! I love fall festivals. I’m reading the third in the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo series. It’s pretty good, but I think out of all of them I will have liked the second one best.

  5. Hey girl! I just finished reading FREEDOM and it was pretty much the best book I have EVER read – its also being hailed as the Great American Novel for this century – have you read it? Also love the Shopaholic books for a bit of old fashioned chick lit!! Your hair looks fab! xox

  6. Your food posts always make me drool. LOL. Even the apples! Yum.
    I’m going to look for that book at the library.
