For those of you that saw my post earlier this morning about the Eat at Home Challenge, have you joined yet? And for those of you that have no idea what I'm talking about, eight THM bloggers and myself put together this really fun challenge to eat at home. Not only is it better for your wallet, but it's usually better for your waistline too. Now don't get me wrong, I LOVE to eat out, but sometimes its good to buckle down and eat at home more. I, along with these eight other bloggers are all accepting that challenge and we hope you'll join us too! As a bonus we're giving away a $40 gift certificate to the Trim Healthy Mama store to one lucky winner. You can enter here! ***You will see that I'm eating out once this week for my birthday on Saturday night. My husband always takes me out to dinner, just the two of us, for my birthday so I wasn't about to pass that up. Other than that I'm eating at home. :)
