What a lovely weekend I had with some of my favorite friends. Like all anticipated weekends, it went by too fast. They really want J and me to move down there, and I must say I am tempted. The cost of living is certainly less than here in Washington. I need to remind myself to be content with my apartment, even if I am paying twice what they do with half the amenities.
Beginning Balance: $355.15
-$5.23 breakfast at airport
-$28.68 lunch for J & me
-$20.00 movie tickets for J & me; saw Where the Wild Things Are
-$18.43 chipping in for groceries for dinner
-$3.66 pumpkin spice latte @ starbucks (mmm!)
-$12.63 lunch at a delicious Tavern
-$4.17 pumpkin spice latte @ starbucks (seriously, i’m addicted!)
-$15.00 metro money
*I signed up for a trial netflix and forgot to cancel it! That was stupid. I hate paying fees like that which could have been easily avoided if I wasn’t lazy and forgetful. Lesson learned. At least I stayed within my weekend budget of $150!
Ending Balance: $229.34
Mimosas, homemade pizzas, sleeping in, mario kart, airport pick-ups, wine, changing leavings, piedmont park, pumpkin spice lattes, laughing until our stomachs hurt. :)
I’ve never been to Atlanta. Since you had a great time, I’m tempted. Although, wouldn’t your gas/car expenses would go up since you have to drive to get anywhere in Atlanta?
Yes, probably. But I drive to and from work here too… my work is on the outskirts of DC and not accessible via metro so I already spend 30 minutes in traffic to and from work each day as it is.
Ahh, well then. What are you waiting for??? I’m actually going down to DC this weekend. I’m from NY and this would be my 2nd visit to DC. I really love it there and I would move to DC in a heartbeat if I could keep up the same lifestyle there as I have here.
