After such a spendy holiday away, I was able to keep expenses relatively low this week. I filled up my tank with a gas card left over from September’s Hyundai loaner card, and ate low key meals at home during the work week. Although I did indulge in two lunches out – including Le Tigre Food Truck on Friday. :)

Friday night, BF and I went for a date night on Granville Island to watch an improv comedy show starring Colin Mochrie. It was awesome! We both loved it, although I couldn’t help but wish Ryan Stiles had also been there.

Both Saturday and Sunday I had field hockey games, which was nice to get back into after having missed the last two weekends. BF’s parents treated us to dinner on Saturday evening, and then I met up with my pal Cait on Sunday evening for a stroll around New Westminster and dinner at Longtail Kitchen. So yum.

How was your week of spending?
