It's Been Boring

I haven't done a regular old life update post in what feels like forever. No other reason other than we've been super boring lately. Not that I'm complaining. Boring is okay in my book. But I doubt anyone would want to read an extensive recap on my current round of antibiotics (minor infection), gym workouts, coloring sessions and Lego towers.

I've been couponing a lot. Kind of an embarrassing amount. But, it's worth it. The other day I got 3 bags of cotton balls and 2 rolls of toilet paper for free at CVS. I typically organize/print coupons on Sunday and Thursday nights after the boys go to bed. It's addicting! Last year I was saving between $20-30 on a $200 grocery bill, and now I can save anywhere from $60-100 a week with coupons.

Oh, and cupcakes! You know, to balance all those workouts ;).

From a new bakery in Schaumburg, My Sweet Kake. I tried the Red Velvet (Ant had the Banana Nutella). The cake was yummy, but nothing out of this world. The frosting, however, was really unique! There were granules of sugar in the frosting and it tasted a bit like the caramelized brulee topping from Capital Grille's cheesecake (which just happens to be the best dessert I've ever eaten). So that was a nice surprise!

Harry and I were planning on taking the train downtown this afternoon to meet up with Ant for a late lunch/early dinner. It's supposed to be in the mid-90s with a chance of rain so I think we might hold off until next Friday. Would love to get downtown at least once more before the cold weather hits.

Have a great weekend!
