Happy Saturday.  My husband and I are going on a date today.  Yay!  We are going to dinner and a movie, for $3.  awww yeah.  We’ve had a gift card to the movies hanging around since August 2007.  (Shows how often we go out.)  It has enough left on it to pay for most of our movie.  Then last month our favorite restaurant had a thing where if you bought a $25 gift card you got a free lunch.  So we each did that.  Granted, our lunches wouldn’t have cost us $50 but still, it was a good deal.  So we have that gift card too.  We can debate the actual cost of today’s date, but it’s going to be about $3 out of pocket.

And on to the link love…
