The Weekend - We ate a lot!

Mic and I have decided that for the month of April we will not be going out to eat or picking up fast food. 
It is part of our "no spend plan". We do have a few things already planned, but nothing else is allowed to go on.

With that said we are going out every night until the 1st!
Just kidding!
However, we did have plans with friends on Friday and Saturday to go out to dinner. 

Friday night we headed to a local Japanese Steakhouse.
Honestly, we have always been kind of skeptical to go because it didn't look the greatest. 
It has been there awhile and we have always heard good things about it so we finally decided to give it a try.
Since we had X with us we chose not to sit a one of the Hibachi tables. 
X and I still enjoyed hibachi meals, while the rest of the table chowed down on sushi.
It was really good! We will be going back :)
They are two "soybeans" in a pod!
 X seriously rocked at using chopsticks the very first time he picked them up!
I can't even use them! Crazy!
And yes, X does have a knife in his hand...supervised.
 The table ordered 8 rolls! And when I say table, I mean the Mic and one other person!
They killed them all except about 5 pieces!

Saturday morning was booty barre time!
Then it was grocery shopping before heading home to shower and pick up the house before friends arrived. 
We ended up going to one of my favorite Mexican restaurants!
Yes, both evenings we took X with us.
Since he was born we have taken him out to eat with us.
I think it has helped with him understanding that he can't act out in public. 
Don't get me wrong, he is a typical 2 year old so there are the occasional outbursts and such.
Thankfully, he loves to entertain people and he is pretty cute to look at ;)
Plus, we tend to choose places that are on the louder side or family oriented so we aren't offending anyone if he does get a bit loud.

Sunday...I got caught up on most of the laundry (I really need to do a load a night!), watched Nashville & looked at a magazine while X took his nap, and then X and I watched the movie Epic together :)
He actually lasted a full hour before wanting to take a break to play or get a snack. 
Thankfully, play time didn't last long and we were able to finish the entire movie! 
This kid is really growing up!

So what did you do this weekend?
Do you take your little ones out to dinner with you?

Linking up with Bella & Lisa for
