Frugal Indulgence Day



It’s an indulgence day on the food front (Cheat Day!) and to make it an even sweeter day I made sure to carefully plan out lots of good deals (groupon, living social, and WTD deals). So far Matt and I have been romping around the city indulging in all sorts of fun. We started with some treats I’d be dreaming about all week

We then headed down to Georgetown to do some errands and for a sight-seeing boat ride! Great WTD deal, we enjoyed the historical narration and sights and snacks, of course

Then we walked past Sprinkles and I looked up the secret word (campfire!) and Matt and I each got a free chocolate marshmallow cupcake – yumm! Such a great deal to get a free one, I think they’re normally $2.50 each. The marshmallow insude was good, but it coulda used more of it. It was like a giant, high quality hostess cupcake with the hardened frosting on top.


‘Twas a beauty!

We finally headed to the Crepeaway because I had bought a deal $5 for $10 worth of crepes. Matt got a chicken caesar one and I got a tomato basil cheese one. They were quite tasty! When I bought the deal I had all sorts of plans for a nutella strawberry banana crepe, but after the cupcake and this morning’s chocolate croissants, I was completely sweeted out. Plus, it was lunch time and all we had eaten was real junk food, so we figured it was time for something more substantial. Although at this point we were very, very full.
The crepe was good, I love the combo of basil and tomato. I wish the cheese had been a better quality mozzarella and that the tomatoes were fresher. Alas, it was still yummy!
With out first half of the day eating and indulging over, we headed home to recover – think we’ll go lay by the pool! It’s a nice day out, not too hot, fairly cloudy, and nice. We’ve got some further adventures planned in a bit, but need some downtime first. Eating and site-seeing is lots of work! ;) Catch ya later!
