"Sure, the mailman won the lottery..."  
I was doing such a good job of saving money for our upcoming LA trip when I saw this tonight and just had to buy it. :P My will power is absolutely mush when it comes to theatre - I'm so pathetic! :P

Speaking of money issues - Mark & I did a lot of talking today about our plans to buy my in-laws house. My in laws will probably be ready to move into a new condo within the next two years or so. That gives us a little bit of time to fix up our place so we can put it on the market and save some money for a down payment. All in all it'll be better, since our place is SO small, so far away from everything - and their house is SO close to my Mom's house (and I worry about her because she lives alone.)

On a food note, I made reservations for Chai's Island Bistro for Mark's birthday dinner next week. :) The menu looks absolutely delicious! I hope Mark likes it there - I can't wait! :) It'll be a great way to break our diet for a night. :)

Finally, Nick's "Side By Side" opened tonight at the Rubicon Theatre. :) I'm so happy that he's had so much success recently in all his directing ventures - I just wish he'd entertain the idea of going back to performing - since he's an incredible comedic talent on stage! He's definitely one of the main reasons I miss LA theatre so much!

REALLY? You're going to Chai's? I heard the food is wonderful! My friend them went last year and even got free dessert, it was for a birthday. I hope you both enjoy yourselves.

I've never been to Chai's either, but I had heard the food was really good. If we're going to blow our diets we might as well blow it on something great, right? ;)

It's really good from what I heard. Let me know how you enjoy it. That's okay if you blow your diet, it's um...once. Enjoy it, reward yourselves.

Oh the menu sounds soooo yummy! Making me hungry!

My thoughts exactly! :D Everything sounds so delicious! I'll be so confused when I get there - I won't know what to order! :)

I was looking at the lobster potstickers... sounds really tasty!

Ah! I didn't even see those! I'll have to try them, they sound really yummy! :)

Ha ha... if you try them, have one for me. :)

It's great that you are putting a plan in place a couple of years before you're ready to buy your new place. That is so important.

I wish that there was some expenses that we could cut to get our savings up. Our problem is having two car payments at once. Once we don't have those anymore, we'll be practically rich!!!

I think we'll need the two years just to get our place into selling shape! The yard definitely needs work and so does the carpet! :(

Having two car payments is definitely hard on a budget. We're lucky that at least one of our cars is paid off. :) We try to save money by not eating out at all except for special occasions and we haven't been to the movies in ages! :P
