We've been trying this whole young-couple-poverty thing lately, which I'm really bad at. Basically, I see money in our accounts and want to spend it, but Austin sees children and school and emergencies in the future and wants to save it (the monies). He's right.
So, to show him how dedicated I am to the cause, I decided to find us a free Friday night date. I didn't want to do anything lame or common, and luckily I saw a post on Facebook that was just the ticket. 125th Year Celebration - Palmyra, NE This town of 600 was doing fireworks and I knew we had to get in on it. We drove out there through the quaint Nebraska countryside (Austin tried to convince me we should live in the country...I told him I was game if it was within a 10 mile radius of Target) and made it to Palmyra right as it got dark outside. We didn't really know where we were going but we saw cars and people and took that as our cue, so we parked and brought our blankets out and found a nice patch of grass.
|We were SO EXCITED! (Clearly.)|
|This is the blastoff|
We are absolutely going next year too! (Anyone wanna come with?)
