The $28

So I was on IG a few days ago and stumbled across a very interesting post...... 


 

I reposted to my own social media to gather responses.... And I was slightly shocked.
With the average millennial being so creative (and broke, lets be honest..we are broke ), I was looking for answers that were a little well.....different than what I got...Especially after the all posts about the '$200 date' and what all a woman would have to do to receive a $200 date..... 

Now personally I have been on dates on the $100-200 range and some on the $20-40 range, (BIG difference I know) and contrary to popular belief I have had more fun on cheaper dates that have not required me to leave the comfort of my kicks and leggings .........


So since I LOVE a challenge (and saving some coins), I have created a list with links of $28 or less dates to take  Bae on this spring/summer 17.... You will thank me later..

  1. Groupon (one of my favorite sites ever) has a comedy show for two, for $15.... If the comic is funny or not, you can always bond over how good (or bad) this guys is and  still have $13 left over to blow....  
  2. One of my favorite places in Cleveland is the zoo ,and for $13.25 per person (and FREE on Monday) it could be one of yours!  
  3. I am super surprised how many people actually have never been to a drive in movie, especially because at $20 a carload (for TWO movies) it is actually cheaper than going to a regular movie, you can wear anything, and lets face it if you date a woman like me, the snacks will be cheaper because you never know what I will pull out my purse ....  
  4. The Cleveland of Museum of Art is FREE and has some awesome areas for picnics 
  5. The Cleveland Museum of Natural History is $8 per person for  spontaneous Wednesday night (I really like museums ) 
  6. While I appreciate a good Netflix and Chill' session, it has been done to death..... Give Bae an experience, add some pillows/blankets, snacks, cocktails etc the thought and effort will be appreciated 
  7. Speaking of in home dates, take a trip to Five Below (or Michael's with coupon in hand of course ) and the grocery store to create a In Home Paint n' Sip 
  8. Chopped at home- I love the Food Network show 'Chopped' and saw on Pinterest where people actually created dates out cooking dinner from random items out of Chopped style box ..How cute is that??? So clip some coupons, clean out the fridge, hit the grocery store and get to work!  
  9. If you know cooking is not a strong point, Groupon has a Hibachi for Two for $13 in Cleveland.... 

So there is my list.... 
Now I can't say that this list was super easy however, I must admit $28 can go pretty far if you put your mind (and wallet) to it.... 


So yes $28 is enough to take a woman out on a date

  1. I think 6,7,8 are REALLY good suggestions. Puts a spin on the whole complaint that people son't appreciate the chill vibe anymore. But chill vibe doesn't mean that it should be void of intentional effort!

So I did a thing.... Chapter 1

This is the story of how my life was changed (again) in a matter of a few months... Its taken a while to process everything that has happened in my healing, the journey and ultimately what is next for me ... So bare with me as I tell this LONG story, Ill include pictures though to make it kinda fun...I have dealt with a lot of depression and anxiety stemming from this entire situation because of things that went wrong, things that were left unattended (by my own hand) and ultimate outcome...But I want to share my story because I know that someone else is hurting in silence and could use some help. While I don't have all the answers ,or maybe any some days, I have my story
On February 19th at 12:30pm, I had 19cm/ 3.06 pound fibroid and 8+ pounds of excess skin removed in the same 6 hour long procedure.... Days later I had to have 2 blood transfusions due to the loss of blood in surgery and after.  Apparently things got scary (I didn’t know,I had a TON of morphine in my system ).

Chapter 6 .....Silvia

And just like that.... I had a date.

The scramble began, I had to cram 6-8 weeks of recovery plans in a matter of 10 days....

Oh, and  I mention this is my final semester of my degree?
So yea on top of working full time, trying to navigate through my interpersonal relationships,  and processing whatever is about to happen, I had to navigate what this could possibly look like for the last of my education.

I was extremely emotional at this point and probably closer to my breaking point that what I honestly wanted to admit..........
I was scared.
Scared of the pain, the recovery, the incision, hell how my body would look and feel because I had honestly just adjusted to the initial weight loss and of course dying.
While both procedures are fairly simple, its rare that they are done together....So I had no clue what to expect but that I was going to be in pain...
I got my tribe together for surgery/recovery plans, bought plenty of wine (they like red wine),and started really proc…
