I had a wonderful weekend with very little unnecessary spending. I decided to make the three hour trip to go home and see my family. My 3 year old niece was coming in town and whenever she is there I try to make sure that I am also, since it is not very often that I get to spend a lot of time with her.

Here is a short recap of what little money I spent:

Hair Cut/ Eyebrows Waxed - $100.00
Walmart for dessert ingredients - $7.13
Gas - $24.95
Coffee - $1.40

However, I ended up doing a lot more. My grandmother, mom, niece, and I went and had mani/pedis, which my mom treated us to. (Thank you MOM). It was great spending time with four generations. We had the best girl time together. My mom and I also went and watched "He's just not that into you." It was a good chick flick and I would recommend watching it, if you like movies. It was funny and not a bit depressing. I ended up staying the night at my mom's house last night and getting up at 4:50 this morning to drive back home and make it to work since we were having so much fun together. I really needed a weekend with family. Everything is in perspective when you are with loved ones.

Spending quality time with family is insurance for your sanity. Good for you for taking the time to be with the most important people in your life. When you feel good and rejuvenated it always leads to a more productive and happy life.
