Happy Monday. Hope everyone had a great weekend! Ours was wonderful and we all sooo enjoyed our bbq yesterday. My eating was definately NOT SB freindly, but I'm not worried about it and started up my morning today back on track.
B: scrambled egg w/ cheese; nf sf vanilla latte
L: snacked on a few veggies & some fruit
D: We ate about 2:30 p.m.--I had beef ribs (they were HUGE!), bbq beef brisket, baked beans, coleslaw, one ear of sweet corn, some fruit & fresh veggies.
D: A small brownie, a oatmeal raisin cookie & about 1 C. homemade vanilla ice cream.
Lots of water (it was hot & we did a lot of activity)
B: Breakfast quesadilla - ww tortilla w/ egg, tomato, onion, green chilis & a little lf mexican cheese blend
S: few blueberries
L: Chicken salad on a slice of ww bread; about 2 c. veggies (cukes, cherry tomatoes, sliced red & yellow pepper) w/ dip; diet coke
S: Probably a pear
D: The quesadilla made me crave Mexican food, so maybe a taco salad or fajitas (w/ out the tortillas, since I've already had 2 grain servings).
Yesterday was truly a blessing for our family. MIL was feeling really well; Auntie & I made her sit down & rest several times in the a.m. while we were getting ready...we didn't want her to wear herself down too bad. We decorated the gazebo, shucked the corn, got the tables & chairs wiped down & tablecloths placed on the tables, helped the guys put up the badmitton net & the horseshoe pit. As soon as we had eaten, the kids got out the water guns & started their water fight. Of course, the older children (our DH's
) had to get right in the fray. We ladies were all sitting at the tables visiting & warned the kids not to spray us, but the guys kept "accidently" spraying in our direction & MIL got a bit wet, so she got up & headed for the house...I figured she was angry & was going to dry off...next thing we know, she comes running around the corner of the house w/ two water hoses hooked together & the spray nozzle on full blast. Those "kids" were soaked to the bone. It was wonderful to see mom so full of spunk! I got quite a few pictures & wish we would have had a video camera (ours bit the dust). These will be the memories we really cherish in the coming years.
BTW, we had so much food left, Auntie took it home to freeze and we're all getting together again in 3 weeks to it again. Maybe DH & I will bite the bullet & get a new video camera before then.
