Spendy Monday

August 22nd, 2016 at 07:31 pm

I took my daughter and a friend out for a day on the town. We ate lunch at Subway first where I spent about $20. Downtown we stopped into our local art council to see the current exhibit, however the exhibit was not open to the public. Frown It would have been free to view.

The girls decided to paint pottery next door. It was military Monday so there was a 10% discount. Total cost was just over $23. We were there for about 1.5 hours. Their pottery will be ready next Tuesday afternoon.

And then after walking around getting hot going in and out of stores just to look, we needed ice cream. Unfortunately, we went to the most expensive ice cream place...Cold Stone Creamery. I spent $15 for the three of us to each have one small item off the menu. I wish I would have suggest a soft serve cone from McDonald's instead!

It was a good time. And a good way to end the summer vacation. School starts on Monday of next week.

    I think you get real cream and real fruit at Stone Cold. McD's strikes me as mostly unpronounceable chemicals with a small amunt of powdered milk and lots of sugar.

    Ice creams never are cheap these days!

    snafu, I'm sure you are right about the McDs ice cream. Smile

    I am lactose-intolerant, but I can eat McD's ice cream. Which suggests there are more chemicals than milk! Can't beat the price, though.

    Sounds like a wonderful day. I bet the ice cream was far superior to the cheap stuff. It isn't like you will do this every Monday.

    I'd go for Cold Stone Creamery over McDonald's "ice cream" any day of the week. Big Grin
