We have had a great weekend (and it's not over yet!)
Last night we went over to our friends Guy and Julie's house and ate dinner and watched a movie.
Julie cooked a delicious healthy meal for us. She even used fresh herbs from her herb garden - she is chopping them here - they smelled so good!
We cooked tilapia and vegetables in parchment paper packets and then had brown rice and a delicious peach cobbler for dessert! Thanks Julie - it was all so good. We watched "Dan in Real Life". It has Steve Carrell in it so you expect it to be funny but it wasn't. It was interesting. It was a fun relaxing night with friends.
This morning I got to meet a sweet fellow blogger, Julie and her husband Bryan. I realized later that every blog friend I have met - we have eaten at Mimi's. That's where we had brunch this morning. It was so good and the company was even better. Julie and Bryan were so very nice and we had a really good time with them. Scott really liked Bryan and I already knew that I liked Julie. She has such a sweet spirit about her.
We came home this afternoon and pulled weeds and put down fresh mulch. That's always a lot of work and I am wiped out from it.
I got this picture out of order - but I wanted to show you what Julie gave me this morning. I thought it was so thoughtful that she brought me a gift. She gave me the Willow Tree figurine of hope. She also gave me a pink bookmark that says Hope (you can't see it in the picture) and such a sweet card about Hope. I thought that was so incredibly sweet for her to give me such wonderful encouragement. I'm going to put that figurine in our nursery. I may keep it on my nightstand or desk until then so I can look at it and remember to have hope!
Tonight Scott and I did NOT have Ruth Chris for dinner. OH NO - we had an equally delicious lean cuisine frozen meal. YUM YUM! I have not done as well on the diet this week because I've had so many fun meals with friends instead but Scott and I are back on the kick. The countdown is getting very close so we have to BRING IT! :-)
What else do we ever do on Saturday nights but go to Sam's. Scott was checking out some Muscle Milk. :-)
Have a great week! I'll be back a week from tomorrow with a post about my week! I will miss you so much (I will also miss TV and the Internet)(boo) but it's good to take a break from the things that start to take WAY too much of your time and focus on the important things!
