Cowboy Friday

My little cowboy

Spending rundown today:
New blue jeans $20.03
Groceries $7.69
Total spent at store: $27.72
Total saved at store: $28.11

Yep, I'm over 50% saved on my grocery/ new pants bill for the second time in one week. Woohoo!

I was doing great today until I took my little guy for a horse riding lesson. He actually got to have a trail ride and go around the pond. They trotted near the pond too. After horse riding (his horrible mom forgot to bring a drink) he was hot and thirsty and tired out so we stopped at Burger King for a late lunch and drinks. $9.61 was spent there. We did go inside though at his request so it was a neat little lunch date for the two of us. He really enjoyed it.

I did not buy the dog food this week, that I'd budgeted for. We'll need it next week and I'll pick it up next week. Still I'm on budget despite the amusement park spending and the Burger King lunch today. So far so good with August spending. Happy cowboy mama here!

My budget for the month is $436 which leaves $211.78

Average daily spending for 2015: $18.34

Plus there's this... WOW!


  1. Ok, I don't want to jinx anything but I think you might have a watermelon coming!!!!

    I think it is well worth the money every now and then to have a "date" with your kids - that one-on-one time doesn't happen NEARLY as much as they get older!!! Enjoy it and do NOT feel quilty!!!

    1. The other three little watermelon that were on the vines shriveled and fell off. This one, yeah, I am amazed at how fast it's growing. I will be SOOOOO sad if it doesn't make it all the way. There are however 6 new tiny baby watermelon on this same plant now. Maybe I'll get one good one from them as well.

      The lunch date was really nice. He's so cute and to him some things are so monumental. Since we do not eat out much he loves "going inside" restaurants even if it's just Burger King (I don't think he's ever been in a Burger King actually; McDonald's a few times though).

  2. I'll be pulling for your lone watermelon. Horses and kids-what a treat.
