Eating Out..and.....Eating Out

So I am proud to admit that the grocery challenge is going great!  I have $45 left for the month and only one week left.  Nice.  However.....the eating out part has been NOT so great, but delicious. ;)  On Thursday Sara and I got together for a playdate and she offered to watch the boys so Marsh and I could go on a date Friday night.  Sooo nice.  We had gotten a babysitter earlier in the week so we could go to the temple, so this meant 2 dates in one week.  The last time that happened was before Chandler was born, imagine that.  We ended up going to Joe's Crab Shack.
 It was really good.  I've never had fresh crab where I had to break it out, but I really liked it.  Saturday night we went down to Provo to a Mac store to look at new Macs.  Hopefully there is an IMac in our future.  Our MacBook just isn't cutting it and is super slow whenever we open any of our design programs. (Photoshop, Illustrator, etc.)  I'm doing more and more with my Babes and Kids Blog and am getting lots of contacts from PR reps, and it would sure be nice to have a computer that runs much faster.  Hopefully soon.  After looking at Macs, we ate at Goodwood, a super yummy barbecue place. \ The boys behaved great which was so nice, and the food was great.  After realizing how tight my pants are getting from slacking in the exercising department lately and eating much more food than I need to, I told myself I was going to eat better this week....yeah right.
My mom came down last night, and we spent today shopping, and....eating out.  We ate at Paradise Bakery for lunch.

 If you have one close and haven't tried their cookies, you totally need to.  

For dinner we all met up, (Marsh, the boys, Jason, Mom & I) and went to Won Won Wok, a Chinese place I have mentioned in the past.
 After that it was back to our house to play Bananagrams,

and take cheesy pictures :)

 It was fun to get together and spend time with my mom and brother.  Even though this eating out extravaganza is deliciously fun and I am happy about it, my pants are not.  They are extremely tight and not fun to put on.  We are at the "laying down" stage.  You know what I am talking about, right?  Where you have to lay down to do them up.  Not fun.  A few lbs...5 lbs...more? I think there's a reason I don't own a scale.  I don't want to know :)
So, I'm going to TRY to be good the rest of the week....

You are hilarious...you're so skinny I have a hard time imagining you not getting your pants done up! Sometimes we go on eating out binges where it seems like thats all we do for meals for a couple of days.

It is good to know that we aren't the only ones who eat out way to often!! I am the queen of lazy when it comes to cooking, so I am all for eating out!! I can't imagine you being any skinnier Tiff, so maybe your pants shrunk in the dyrer....(thats what I always say!) Love your posts, I always get a kick out of reading them!

I found the link. It's couponmom.com. Look at her lists and see if they compare. I'd be interested to know.

haha oh how I know about the laying down to get pants on! Looks like you have tried a few great places! Isn't it fun living in utah & experiencing all the new places you can go? I had lunch with mom & Jason today & they told me about bananagram that looks really fun!
