Donut Hole Theif

This morning I decided to treat myself to donut holes! Yes, there is a Shipley's right next to Addison's school, and every day I pass by thinking "I'd like a donut, but maybe someone brought them to work today", and every day, there are never donuts waiting for me at work... so I was tired of getting my hopes up and being let down... that is why I treated myself today!

Upon arriving at work, I am greeted by our office cat. This happens pretty much on a daily basis, but today she wanted me to share what-ever was giving off that heavenly scent from within the paper bag. I sat down and shooed her away, but she wouldn't leave! She really thought I was going to share my donuts!

Leave it to this crazy kitty to get what she wants on her own! I went to go check the fax machine and when I got back, found her with her head and paw in the bag fishing out a donut hole. I was too late grabbing my camera and taking a picture of the kitty thief in action, but I sure did get one of her enjoying one of MY donut holes... Guess I will have to get a full donut next time- donut holes are the perfect size and weight for kitty-theifs that like donuts!

Reason #237 to have a kid

So there are many perks to having kids. Of coarse, the overwhelming love towards another human being and their love reciprocated is a wonderful feeling, as well as the pride in their achievements big or small... but there are other little things you don't exactly think about before the baby is out of the tummy. No I am not talking about the tax deduction for children, I am talking about the fact that most restaurants have a "kids eat free" night one day of the week! This is the best! I don't know why I am just now figuring this out. As a full-time worker, I don't go home and cook. I hate dishes, and honestly I hate cooking in my tiny kitchen with no counter space... so needless to say, we eat out quite a bit!
Last night, Josh and I enjoyed dinner on the patio at Ninfas. We were enjoying the evening when Josh looked up at the marquis and found that Addison would be eating for free that night. He looked at the children's menu and decided she would probably like the chicken fingers.

We liked the chicken fingers in addition to our shared plate of fajita nachos (Addi enjoyed them too)!

I need to figure out all the restaurants that have this deal, and what nights it occurs- dinner plans now depend on where and when Addi (and mommy & daddy) can eat free!!
