My husband and I went on the first date we’ve had in a very long time. I’m ashamed to admit it, but I don’t think we’ve been out without the kids for at least a year. Pitiful? Yes.
Well we finally got a date, and we pulled out all the stops. First we went to Zoo Atlanta. At first it was strange being there without the children, but we soon got into a groove and enjoyed our time together looking at the animals.
When you first go in, you see all these flamingos waiting to greet you. It was so funny when one flamingo flapped its wings, made a noise and then they all joined in. They all proceeded to head back up to higher ground after this. Bobby (mi esposo) then said “Okay guys, break is over. Time to go back to work.” You probably had to be there, but it was hilarious!
Here’s the kangaroo just hanging out. I think he looks relaxed, don’t you?
How fun it must be to just hang in a tree all day! If I was hanging like this, my legs would fall asleep, so I wonder if the snake’s entire body falls asleep?
These guys are so smart to hide amongst the leaves.
I think this Merekat cutie looks pregnant, what do you think?
And this is as close as I ever want to get to a Komodo Dragon.
After the Zoo, we had an amazing dinner at a classy restaurant in Atlanta. Then we went next door to the movie theater and caught a flick.
Normally, this thrifty Mama would not dare do all of this on one date. But I was able to save money by getting Zoo tickets on Groupon, a restaurant certificate on Restaurant.com (use code DEAL to save 80%) and the movie tickets through a Fandango deal on Living Social.
But, the night was most definitely priceless.
How did you all do this week? Go ahead, show off all those awesome deals you got! Please link directly to your posts, and I ask that you do not link to giveaways or posts mainly promoting affiliate deals. Let’s encourage one another with our thrifty ventures. No giveaways please. Thanks!
