Here at Zoo Atlanta they have an awesome family membership, my neighbor actually got one, for $99. For $30 more she added me and now either one of us can go anytime, bring a guest for free, and up to 4 kids ANYTIME for a year. Hello, check out your local zoos, and see if they have any great deals. This has got to be the best deal in town, and that's exactly what they advertise. :0
After the zoo, I made my trip to Trader Joes, bought a few yummy things, mostly Sauces, bread, chips, and a few other non perishable items. Its a good hour from my house especially with traffic.
I promised my little Princess she could have a few friends sleep over before school starts, and do Mehndi n their hands. We were supposed to watch Twilight, but I forgot to get it, so we watched AMADEUS on Netflix instead. LOL. I love that movie.
We started the night with dinner. The girls all helped make a pasta dish, salad, and garlic bread. Who doesn't like Italian right? After pigging out, we put on our jammies, and went to do Henna.
The girls, had fun, I was pleased with my first attempt at doing Mehndi. I think I am hooked. It was great fun, and once I got into it, I just started doing my own design, rather that trying to perfectly copy pics.
Here's some before and after pics.
|Before pic, I try to cook with as much organic food|
as possible. Once you get used to the added cost
you learn to budget for it. Cut out all other junk food, and
you may even save money. :)
|My Princess M, one carrot, 2 ribs celery, 5 cloves garlic,|
one onion, finely processed. Now nobody sees it, but
eats it anyway. Forgot my mushrooms, and bell peppers.
No biggie, just as good without.
|Princess chopping salad.|
|This sauce is so yummy, and at only $2.29 a great DEAL.|
|Dinner, on my not so lovely plastic plates. I want to|
replace these with metal ones, like in the Indian
food joints. I do have ceramic, but with kids never
use them. Too bad.
|Princess M and her design choice.|
|Girls together, posing on my dirty ottoman. My kids|
have spilled everything possible on this thing.
|My hand, lol.|
|My son Big B just HAD to have something too. Manly|
or course, but I don't know how to do skulls, and such, so
he settled on chinese writing for COURAGE.
