It was a good weekend! Friday night I picked David up from the airport and we had dinner at our favorite little sushi place. YUM! Saturday David had to work, but Kim came over and we went to water aerobics class. Since she is officially hired by the gym, she was checking out the Aqua class and getting some info from the instructor that does this class. We had a great time, and I have been sore this weekend from the workout!
Saturday night, Craig came over and David grilled and we played Wii...that was some serious fun! David had to work Sunday, and after that we went to his parents and had dinner. It was a lovely weekend!
David is home for about a week and a half, and I am very happy about that! I am also happy that it's a short week...did I mention that already??? :)
Everyone have a good Monday!

See? It's different this time. I faced my fear of the scale, got on, and now I have a plan. Lots of exercise!!
That's it for today. David is out of town and will be home tomorrow. Yay!!

Sunday was actually my birthday, and it was wonderful! I got one more of the Lolita martini glasses ("Celebrate!") and the promise of a fab new gym bag which should be arriving soon in the mail! Yay! Mom took us to brunch at the Blue Mesa Cafe - YUM! That buffet is huge and quite filling! Then we came home and relaxed for a while, played some Wii, and hung out. David made dinner reservations at my very favorite restaurant, Kirby's Steakhouse. We got there at 6:30 and had a lovely table. The service was spectacular, and the food was so good I can't begin to describe it. It was amazing! We got home after that and sat on the patio and enjoyed some wine. It was a perfect day! Turning 36 has been so wonderful, and I know next year it will be just as fun to celebrate again! (Thank you to everyone who made my birthday so much fun!)

After the best French toast ever, we did some cleaning around the house and then went to the movies to see The Love Guru. Do not go to this movie if you don't like potty humor! However, apparently we're like a couple of 12 year olds, and laughed at the silliness of the movie. I couldn't help it...it was just funny! (Check your brain at the door for this one...you won't need it!)
Then we came home and filled and frosted cupcakes. We injected them with cheesecake flavored pudding and frosted them with a bit of cream cheese icing. When mom and dad got here, we all shared what may be the best birthday cupcakes ever made! Oh, they were little cakes of heavenly joy!
Then it was on to D'Vine Wines for some wine tasting. We had some good stuff, and I love this little wine bar. We all shared a wine and cheese plate and sampled a few wines.
From there it was on to a very tasty little hole in the wall Italian restaurant, where we ate some amazingly good food! After that we called it a night, and after David and I got home we played the Wii for a few hours. It's the first time we've had a chance to just play together, and we played bowling, golf, tennis, and boxing. (I got smacked in the arm playing tennis...they are serious when they tell you to make sure you have room between you and the other player!) We broke a sweat playing boxing - it's physically involved with all the punching and jabbing and ducking! Then I finally had to call it a night. I was very tired!
Today is the day before my birthday, and it's pool party day! I can't wait! Almost everyone invited can come, and I am so excited to enjoy the day with so many good friends! I'm tomorrow will bring more pictures of all the fun! David has really made this a very special birthday!

I have started collecting these painted martini glasses by Lolita, and I love this! The matching bottle stopper is in the glass...it's really cool!
We had a blast! Today they will be filled with cheesecake flavored pudding and topped with icing. YUM!
To round off the evening yesterday, David made my favorite dinner! He grilled big eye tuna, and we enjoyed it with avocado slices, and a salad consisting of scallops, grilled portobella mushroom, mixed greens and grapefruit. Seriously, it's one amazing meal!
So that was day one of birthday fun! I'll post tomorrow about the events of the day, and it's starting out great!!

My awesome friend Angela is hostessing my birthday gathering this weekend, and I am very pumped up about that! It's going to be so cool!
WW hasn't gone great this week. But I am still going and stepping on the scale. I am actually going on Thursday so that my WW buddy Sandra can go. She has a conflict tomorrow, so we're going to together on Thursday. But yeah, I probably gained a pound or two this week, but it will be gone next week, for sure!! :)
I am still mourning the loss of Tim Russert. For me, he made politics exciting. The elections won't be the same without him. I hope his family is holding together.
That's it for today. Everyone have a good evening!

I am on an orange kick right now, and they have become my snack of choice. Mom picked up a box of Harry and David pears (if you have not had them, they are to die for!!) while in Austin, so I get to pick that up tonight. She also picked up some jerk seasoning for us, so now David needs to do some jerk pork! MMM! All this food talk is making me hungry!
In other news, Kim is now a 24 Hour Aqua instructor!! I am so very proud of her! She's going to be great, and I can't wait to take her class! I knew she could do it...she's a Rock Star!
So that's it for now...I'll post my WW news as soon as I get back from the weigh in. Please send good vibes out to me!!!

David is in NYC until tomorrow. He saw those two guys that scaled the New York Times building. Do people just climb buildings because they can? I'm too afraid of heights to do something like that. The elevator ride to the top of the Eiffel Tower was scary enough for me!
I have decided that when I have lost a total of 10 pounds (hopefully soon!) I am going to treat myself to something I heard about on the radio. It's a lip scrub (www.thelipscrub.com) and I think it might be nice to treat my lips to something like that. I'm dying to try it so I thought it might make a good reward for my hard work. It's hard not to just go buy it, but I am making myself wait. The big decision will be which flavor to try! :)
Well I think that's about it. I hope everyone has a wonderful Friday!!

I got up very early to take David to the airport this morning, and I am VERY tired today. I may need to go get some coffee!
Everyone have a good Thursday!

So I am floating on a cloud today! Yes, it's a great day! I have taken the day off and am about to go have some (healthy!) lunch with David, and then off to the pool for a little relaxation. I think for my first 10 pounds off I will reward myself with a new lip gloss. :)
Everyone have a great day!

The rest of the weekend was good. I was still on a SATC high. :)
I hope everyone had a great weekend. Try to have a good Monday!!
