Work, rain, and income tax returns

Hello and Happy Monday, Blog Land! I hope everyone had a super duper relaxing weekend while I was busy working my pa-tootie off. That didn't sound bitter, did it? On the real tho, my weekend was pretty good.

Friday consisted of my not feeling well, doing some blogging and a lot of lounging around in my PJs comfortable clothes while it rained. I also got my tax return back, but it went straight into savings. Because that's what you do when you want to buy a house.

Friday we decided that we should go on a date. This started off with us driving around for about forty five minutes saying "I don't know, where do you want to go?" back and forth to each other.

Thumbs up for great decision making. And the debut of my new rain jacket.

 Finally we decided on Red Lobster. FYI I have only been to Red Lobster once before, and I wasn't a fan. (Growing up on the coast, "seafood" consisted of what my Dad caught that week fishing, and then cooked himself) But I will say that this time around, I enjoyed it. And the cheesy biscuits. Oh. My. Gosh. Aaahhmazzing.

Saturday, I got up at the ass crack of dawn to head in to work. Not much else happened that night besides getting free waffle fries at Chick Fil A.

Sunday was the same as Saturday minus the waffle fries and plus we bought Tickets to Dega! I'm so excited. Remember when one of my goals was to get Derek an awesome anniversary present? Well this is it. I was planning on surprising him but I ended up needing his input (where to get seats, etc) so now he knows about it and (bonus!) he's splitting the cost so we can get a nice camping spot too (happy Birthday to me!!!).

Picking our camping spot.

If you can't tell, I'm super pumped about it. This will be my second time attending a NASCAR race, you can read about my first time here.

Also, last night I corn rowed my hair, so there's that.
Obvs not a legit corn row, I was just bored while Derek was playing ps3 and this was the outcome.
Linking up for Weekend Shenanigans with Sami and This Weekend I... with Life of Love. Have a fabulous Monday! TTFN

Your date night description made me laugh. We always make a plan before leaving the house or else we're just like you: wandering around!

Thanks for linking up Kalyn!

Nice! You know how to spend your tax return, huh It may not be a huge amount of money, but it's still serve as a big contribution to your savings. Good job! I'm sure you're gonna purchase a house soon. :)

Looks like to me if 40% of the population pays only 6% of the burden, it is that group who is getting plenty of 2013 tax brackets advantages. I'm not saying this is unfair. Saying the rich aren't paying their fair share just is not supported by the raw data. So, I'm wondering why this is said. I just can't figure it out.
