I had a great weekend! I took a vacation day on Friday so I could attend parent teacher conferences and Colby's first baseball game and it was a gorgeous day! So glad I took the day off. I heard some pretty positive things about both of my kids, the Trojans won by a score of 10-nothin' and we got to spend time with Heather, Wesley & Nolan. We went to Pepper's after the game because Boo's had a line out the door. They had a buffet but after looking at it I decided to stick to my good eating habits and order the chicken breast. It was actually pretty good. I was afraid it would be dry but it was really juicy and seasoned well. I had a salad, chicken, green beans (I'm sure they were full of bacon grease but oh so good!) and a few bites of big curd cottage cheese (not a fan!) Darrell had rolls with his open faced beef and my mouth was watering so when he didn't finish his second one, I asked for a bite and immediately spit it out - totally not worth the calories!
Saturday morning Sonya had a volleyball tournament in Arnold. She spent all night with the team so I didn't have to be there at the ass crack of dawn but still made it by 10:30. My nephew and his wife were there with their baby who is almost as big at 9 months as Nolan is at 1 year! Geez! He is a beast:) Had a really good talk with them. Wesley brought Nolan to me and he spent a few hours watching volleyball - except for the few minutes it took him to pee on me (damned cloth diapers) and to do a faceplant into the trophy case. The tournament didn't go so well but we were finished by 1:00 so Sonya and I decided to run by Target (I had a $20 gift card.) I wanted a new shirt to wear to the bowling alley but couldn't find anything. Nolan wasn't a big help as he refused to stay in the cart! Sonya and I got a few new unmentionables and we were on our way.
Stopped by Cato's while Sonya napped in the car and returned a few purchases from last week. I found two new blouses (I knew I'd only keep one of them) and ran home to change before the Colorama at the bowling alley. I have been looking forward to this all week, had been wanting a drink since Wednesday and knew I would most likely be staggering out of the bowling alley by the end of the night. Here was my outfit for Saturday night. Don't look at Sonya's room - it's a mess!
This is also my 180 pound picture! I've officially lost 25 pounds and am starting to be more confident in the way I look and I think you can tell by the smile on my face! (Unfortunately, my unhealthy habits of Saturday night found their way back to my hips because I was up 2 pounds today but I'm confident they'll be gone again by the end of the week!)
So I had quite a few beers that night and I originally wanted to go out dancing after bowling but by the time we left, I was in no shape to go anywhere but home! I woke up at 8am to let the dog out, went back to bed, got up at 11am to eat a big ass bucket of Cookie Crisp, went back to bed where I rested my eyes and watching TV until Darrell forced me out of bed at 1pm!!! Nothing really hurt but I was just soooo lazy. I tried to make breakfast, burned the biscuits not once, but TWICE and then had to get ready for league bowling.
Started off with a good game (for me) of 111, but then I don't know what in the hell happened and I ended up with a 74 or 76 for the 2nd game and a 107 for the 3rd game. All in all, I got my average (93) for the night. Home and made an early night of it. Got some bad news from DJ but I'm still working that out in my head so will have to decide whether to share his issues later on:)
