I promise to post pictures of our weekend at some point this week...

We got to last night, and Ray and I both collapsed into bed. I was going to go to the gym, but I just couldn't muster up the strength to actually change my clothes and go.

We had friends in town from Virginia whom we love. Their youngest is Ashley's age, and they are "best friends" even though they only see each other about twice a year. Everyone got along really well. We took a trip to the Duke Gardens on Saturday after Ashley and Audrey's last dance class. The Gardens were beautiful and I promise to post some pictures soon.

Our friends actually were supposed to head to Myrtle Beach for Spring Break, but because of a death in the family, they were heading back to Virginia. So Sunday morning we got up and hit the early service at church. Everyone but me (I had to teach Sunday school) went to breakfast and they hit the road.

Then Ray and I split up - he went to Walmart with Ashley for some groceries and mulch; I hit CVS and Harris Teeter for some sale items. Even with a $17 purchase of Tide (that was on sale for $6 off at Harris Teeter), we still only spent $80 on groceries this week. And yes, that include some fresh veggies from Harris Teeter.

Ray spent the afternoon putting mulch down. I spent the afternoon attempting to get Audrey to take a nap (at which I failed) and cleaning the kitchen for the hundredth time this weekend. The pollen is unbelievable right now, and even if we open our windows for a few minutes, the entire kitchen is suddenly covered in a light yellow film. We then headed to a friend's house for dinner and egg coloring. Seriously, the girls colored 24 eggs! I think we done with egg coloring...

Thankfully this week has a lot going on - Ashley has a field trip tomorrow which I am chaperoning, Thursday I am teaching a training class at work, and Friday the girls and I don't have work/school (Ray ALWAYS has work, a downside of being self employed). Bring on the Easter Bunny....

I need to get on the $80 a week in groceries bandwagon. This $150+ is for the birds!!

I'm with Kellie - $80 a week? I'm totally doing it wrong.

My allergies have been all the rage too, I love Spring but it literally kills me.
