Today I feel like writing whatever pops into my brain. And I also want to share some pictures with you. Soooo today's post is gonna be a little random...  

 

 

Last week Mike and I walked downtown to check out a (free) show called Circus Orange: Tricycle. It was the weirdest thing I've ever seen. It included a creepy clown riding a GINORMOUS tricycle and other strange creatures following it around. The tricycle drove through the crowd then at the end of the show, the front wheel from the tricycle was lifted into the air by a crane and fireworks / flames shot out of it while a performer ran around the wheel like a hamster.

 

That description sounds ridiculous, I'm sure, but let me assure you... the actual show was even more ridiculous.

 

That big blur of white light in the sky is the tricycle wheel spinning around and flames shooting out of it. ...yeah.

 

I've been reading a TON lately. It's glorious. I got hooked on this Chelsea Cain thriller series (super good but also super gory/disturbing), Room (saw it recommended on a few other blogs, it was kinda weird at first but then really good), and I started listening to this Sophie Kinsella book on my phone while I walk in the morning. (I download the audiobook for free from the library's app)

 

Speaking of the library, last week I rented 17 Again. I hadn't seen it before- it was so cute!

 

Also discovered that the library carries the new Skrillex CD-- who woulda thought?!! hahaha

 

And to round out our free entertainment, Mike and I started watching the last season of Are You The One on mtv.com. It's hilariously trashy, I love it. They have all of last season's episodes up on the website for free- check it out! (sidenote: MTV usually offers free episodes of all the old seasons; if you're trying to catch an episode of a current season, you can only watch it for a week after it airs... after that they take it offline until the season is over!)

 

I shared this on Instagram (are we friends there yet?!) so sorry to anyone who follows me there, too, because I'm sure this is gonna make you crave sushi again! We used a $10 restaurant.com voucher (Mike's company offers them even cheaper than their usual price) to grab sushi the other night and it was SO SO SO GOOD. Our bill still ended up being somewhere around $25 (including tip though, so I suppose that's not too bad) which means that Chipotle still comes in first in the cheap food category. As if we all didn't already know that...

 

Oh and this was my fortune! (it's a lil blurry but says: Beware of little expenses. Small leaks will sink great ships.) ...so fitting for a financial blogger, right?!

 

PS- As much as I can't believe I'm about to say this... it's ALMOST OCTOBER! (????!!!! whoaaaa) and that means it's almost time for another monthly Saving Money Challenge! Make sure you're on my email list so you'll get October's challenge :)
