Date Night

Lupe and I enjoyed another Saturday Date Night. I need to start taking the camera so I can show some pictures.

We were hungry as always (we enjoy having a quiet meal together) so my Sweets suggested Country Burgers (I think that was the name) we both ordered the Chile Burgers with cheese. We asked for no onions but I guess they forgot because both burgers had onions.

Something unique about this place, they serve your food in a paper bag whether you are eating out or dining in. I like it, it's something different. I also like the rustic charm. Reminds me of our Yellow Stone vacation.

We took our time eating, just enjoying each others company. Talking about the children, family, homeschooling, and the kids again.

When we were done we took a ride around some neighborhoods. Just having fun dreaming about our next home.

We then went to Yogurt Cup for dessert. Lupe, piled his cup with lots of fruit. I on the other hand added lots of chocolate chips, peanut butter cups, graham cracker crumbs, and coconut. Because of my overbite I have a hard time eating small things and with the cold yogurt I felt as if my mouth was frozen.

Then it was off to Target. I needed a few groceries. The regular stuff, canned tomato sauce and diced tomatoes as well, yogurt (without dyes), pickles, ketchup (without high fructose corn syrup), some Enchilada Sauce without MSG, it's so hard to find one that doesn't have all the junk in it. I finally found one at Target, they are sold in a pouch instead of a can. It's more expensive of course.

Lupe bought some jeans, we bought some hair products. It's so hard to find all natural ingredients with no mineral oil or petroleum. I am replacing all my chapsticks with one that doesn't add petroleum.

Every year I try to eliminate or add things that improves our health. For instance 6 years ago I started using better oils in our food, Cold Pressed Olive Oil and Coconut Oil. I still use some vegetable when the budget is tight. One year I started cutting out foods that contained MSG, then another year I worked on omitting items that contain Sodium Laureth Sulfate, another High Fructose Corn Syrup and this past year it was limiting dyes in our diet or in skin products. Now I'm reducing Mineral Oil and Petroleum. This is not to say we never eat dyes or never use Sodium Laureth Sulfate products but I do try to stay away as much as possible.

Back to our date, this is why we were reading all the labels on the shampoo and conditioner products. We wanted one with no Sodium Laureth Sulfate. The 3 years now I haven't used any shampoo and I normally have the children use the homemade soap on their hair instead of shampoo. Lupe is the only one who uses shampoo now. We eventually found one that we were satisfied with. Shea Moisture, Raw Shea Butter Moisture Retention Shampoo with Sea Kelp, Argan Oil and Shea Butter, so we'll see how it works. The children and I will continue to use the homemade soaps.

We finished at Target and came home. The children were still awake and Lupe is with Auntie R. She tripped earlier today and we think she sprained her ankle. It was really bothering her so Lupe took her to the hospital.
