Yup, had to go to page 3 to find the darn thing
I usually don't post on the weekends....I'm on a computer all week at work, and although we have a computer at home, I rarely use it...it's slow and I'm usually tired of sitting around typing on the dumb thing by Saturday & Sunday.
Had a great weekend, though....
Took off early on Friday and ended up out to dinner with MIL & FIL....those beef ribs and baked potatoes on the menu were calling my name, but I just ignored them & ordered the salad bar, sirloin steak with extra steamed veggies & the fresh strawberries with whipped cream for dessert. I'm pretty sure that whipped cream was the real thing, so I only had a taste, then gave the rest to DD.
Saturday, we dropped DD over at a friend's house for a sleepover, then headed up the hill (mountain) with DH, MIL & FIL to Central City. We stopped for lunch on the way, and I had the most delightful cobb salad (skip the bacon, please) on the most beautiful patio setting (a restaurant called El Rancho--I've driven by it many times on my way up the mountain, just never stopped before). I did endulge in a mimosa, though (champagne w/ orange juice). Then we walked around Central City (an old goldmine town) for awhile (they were having a music festival--so listened to some music, browsed through some stores, etc.), then went down into a couple of the casinos. Dropped in $10 & left with $20...DH dropped in $10 and left with $17. Not bad.
Sunday I took myself shopping while DH helped FIL on a couple of jobs. I went to Target & picked up a few new outfits for DD to put away for her birthday (Oct 31), then over to Kohl's where I picked up a new pair of slacks and a few new shirts; shorts & new polo for DH. Then over to pick up DD from friend's & drop her off at Grandma's (my mom) for a sleepover. Then DH & I went to Red Lobster. I did very well.....had a salad (skip the croutons & those wonderful cheddar biscuits), then had the Ultimate feast---shrimp scampi, more shrimp scampi (i had them trade out the breaded shrimp for extra scampi), a lobster tail (small) and a few snow crab legs. The melted butter was my only no-no. Then we went to a movie - Yesterday was our 14th anniversary, so we celebrated a day early.
Spent yesterday with my family: mom & dad, brother & his wife & 2 girls. We had a cookout & just plain *visited*.
This a.m., I had a wonderful email awaiting me....my cousin, who lived with my family for several years when we were in our teens, is moving from North Carolina to Nebraska to be closer to our families. They leave tomorrow, so please pray for them to have a safe trip. We are more like sisters than cousins, so this is a very special thing to me. Neither of us can afford plane trips to/from Colorado/North Carolina, but I'm usually in Nebraska at least once a year & it's only a 7 hour drive, so we could even do long weekends! YEA!
B: Uncle Sam's w/ nf milk & strawberries
L: Salad & leftover steak (and a little acorn squash) from yesterday
D: Not sure yet....
