How a broke girl spends her weekend

{iphone style}

 Start your weekend off by partaking in complimentary ritas by the pool whilst at a "work meeting". 
Yes-this really is at someone's "office". (Sign me up!) 

Support your husband as he partakes in SIX "said" ritas and loses his ability to drive home.
#jerk #hebeatmetoit

Split a pizza at a local bar and call it a night.

Work out as soon as you wake up because Lord knows, you can't just sit still on a Saturday morning...and lets be honest...working out is FREE.

Take advantage of your townhome complex's pool party by inviting friends over to enjoy free 
Chick-fil-a, kegs and watermelons covered in Vaseline (don't ask).  

Spend the rest of the night consuming $2 beers and $4 appetizers with your best friends.

All while watching the Texans kick @$$ at their first pre-season game.

Consume cereal as your fourth meal because the $4 nachos just weren't enough an you're too money conscious to stop at Taco Hell.

Spend Sunday morning cleaning house, doing laundry and "splurge" by hitting up the matinee to watch "The Campaign". (which sucked if I must say so myself.)

Watch your husband fry deer steaks in nothin' but his boxers.
[Sorry ladies, food pic only. And yes-I ate mac & cheese and LOVED it.]

Meanwhile you tear up your pantry to find enough ingredients to make 
healthy breakfast muffins for the week.


Wrap up the weekend by closing out the Olympics and ringing in Shark Week. (HELL. YES.)

All in all...not a bad weekend but this "whole no shopping or spending money or doing anything because we're saving money for the house" is for the birds. 

The end.
