We also talked about possible vacation/getaway this year. We want to go low-key because money is tight but we desperately need to do something together, just two of us. Our idea now is this:
Antelope Canyon in AZ.
It's about 6.5 hour drive from us, so we will stay overnight somewhere close there. But it looks so breathtaking that it's totally worth it! Now we just need to find a babysitter for 2 days. We also think of having a little family vacation, maybe, to a local resort or something. This one is still in a planning stage. Our goal is to spend less than $500 for everything, including gas. But it feels so nice to get a break and actually plan a VACATION!!
I'll be back later today with a menu for this week and some food waste (if I can find my camera...)
