Posts Tagged ‘weekends’

I have had an awesome end of the week!  Thursday’s grocery shopping resulted in some staples as well as some extra lean ground beef. Scott cooked these on the Foreman Thursday evening.  I fixed mine with light canola oil mayo, which has only 30 calories per serving!  One serving was plenty with the burger.  I also had Snyder’s tortilla chips with red pepper hummus.  The hummus was extra creamy and has great flavor.

On Friday, I had it a bit easier at work.  Some children were sick, and that left me with only three kids.  We had fun, though!  I have a new toy tool set for them to play with, and they went around the room hammering other toys and trying to unscrew the high chairs.  It was quite fun to watch them.  I also got to spend a good deal of time with them outside on the playground as the humidity was not too bad and the temperature was lower than normal.  I looove being outdoors when the weather is nice!

Yesterday evening we helped out and hung out at our church’s lock-in for our youth group.  Scott planned to meet me at the church since it was his late day at the office.  I picked Noah up from his mother’s house, where he had spent the afternoon, and the two of us met some friends at a favorite Thai place of ours for dinner.  Chef’s Secret serves up yummy Thai and Japanese food, and they also have a sushi bar.  I don’t mind sushi too much, but it’s not my first pick.  I chose to have the Pad See-U with vegetables.  I have been wanting lots of veggies since starting to eat healthy, so this really hit the spot.

We left the restaurant with Scott’s take out order and headed to the church.  We had a blast hanging out with the youth.  They played human battleship, several board games, and capture the flag before I hit a wall.  Scott and I were not expected to stay the entire night, so I came home around one.  Scott stayed to help supervise a little bit longer since he was more awake than I.  He made it home about 2:45 this morning (!).

The first part of my Saturday was spent resting and being lazy after keeping an eye on teenagers last night.  I had lunch today before I went to a get together for a close friend of mine.  I got to catch up with her and her family, and I gave some good Vegas tips to her sister.  Not wanting to be rude, I did get some small portions of the food that was offered.  It was all very tasty, but eating it, I realized that my body is really beginning to not have a taste for certain foods.  I think that’s a good thing.  It was well worth it to share some laughs and memories with great friends.

It’s been a great weekend so far!  I’ve had fun, but I am beat.  I see an early bedtime in store for me this evening.  Oh, I have another victory in the Household Healthy Living Transition to announce – Scott tried the almond butter and really liked it!  I knew he couldn’t be a hater.  That stuff is gooood.

Question: How is your weekend so far?
