What's that noise?

Must be the sound of wild rejoicing emanating from my driver's seat....



If you'd told me a few years back I'd consider sub-$2.00 a gallon gas a bargain I would have laughed (or possibly thrown up.)

It's been a great week with The Engineer's parents. Unfortunately, they're headed home this morning, but we were able to go out for a delectable dinner on their last night here. (Those of you who live in the same unnamed metropolitan area as me--e-mail me and I'll tell you about our surprising new restaurant find.) Our server was not only incredibly nice; she also took a very cute picture of the six of us.



Have a great Friday, and I'll see you here tomorrow!

How interesting, just wait until you see my post later- I took the same exact picture yesterday as I was leaving work for my blog! Great minds think alike, but some are better at getting to the punch line. (BTW, we did the same thing for election day too...I am waiting a few more days to post that one.) :) Anyway, your hair looks great and what a beautiful family.

Becki--Thanks! I'm gradually figuring out the new cut--takes awhile, you know?

Brook--Definitely, great minds think alike! :) Isn't it nice to be paying half of what we were paying not long ago?

Lia Pearson said...

I wann live where you are Beth! our gas is still around $2.30+ :( I remember the day it went back under FOUR DOLLARS my sister and I were so excited until we realized what we were excited about...yuck!

ADORABLE picture btw...I was like "where is Eli? all I see is Ana and some big kid in Beth's arms!" lol.

I paid 1.74 yesterday! just in time for Christmas shopping!

Beth, I LOVE paying less. I kinda feel like I'm a teenager again, because it has been that LONG!! We can actually drive home more than once every few months now!

Sandi said...

I am so happy with the gas drop! I commute about 55 miles each day so instead of paying $60 a week, it's now only $37. What a difference! Great pic, BTW!

C. Beth said...

Lia--Ha! He is definitely getting so big. It's exciting but also sad!

Inkpot--Thank you!

Becca--I IM'd you on Messenger--let me know if you got it!

Rebecca--$1.74?!?! Wow, I can't believe it's that cheap ANYWHERE!

Brook--Yes, it really makes a difference on road trips, doesn't it?

Sandi--Wow, almost $100 a month! That's great! (And thank you!)

I love nice people who snap our family pics! I don't live in the US, so... :P it's different for me, but yes, gas prices are going down for us as well!

What a lovely looking family you are. Do you know something, Beth? Your one minute writer blog is the first that I have ever wanted to Follow. It is very nice to focus the mind so intently for 60 seconds.

What an adorable family!

Saw gas for $1.81 today! Almost crashed the car!

You have a beautiful family : )
