Some Weekend Fun

July 31, 2016

Pre-menopause or not, I’ve been in a really good mood since finding out that I got the job on Wednesday! I was nervous that it wasn’t real until I got the email with the New Hire Paperwork, then I was giddy all over again. Thanks for all of your sweet and supportive comments!

It’s been a good weekend with a nice mix of fun and chill time as well. This morning? Coffee and couch time while it rains.

We have a neighborhood bar that is a mile down the street with a great patio. Perfect for when we want to go out, but have no desire to go to far. The weather was perfect Friday night for listening to some live music outside, so we headed out for a date night. We hadn’t heard the guy that was singing before, but we really liked him. 

During the evening, he came over to us and introduced himself. Super nice. Then he asked me for my phone and took our picture! Cracked me up. He was great at interacting with the crowd and it made for a fun night. We stayed until he was done singing!



Great Music, Yummy Food, Cold Beer



Saturday morning I went to my first Hot Yoga class in weeks! It felt great to be back. After Yoga, Mike and I went to the City Market, then met my mom and my nephew for coffee.

Last night was a quiet one at home.

I did a lot guessing on SmartPoints for the last two days. I think that sometimes you just have to make the healthy choice, choose the foods that you know that you like and give it your best guess.


Brunch – 13 SP

Brunch at First Watch after my WW meeting.

Egg White Omelette with Bacon and Avocado, (no cheese) Salsa, Potatoes and Fruit. I ate half of the potatoes.



Dinner – 20 SP

2 IPA Beers, Grilled Chicken, Greens, Avocado, Sliced Almonds, Grapes, Red Onions and Balsamic Vinaigrette on the side. Mike had Sliders and Sweet Potato Fries and they looked and smelled DELISH!!




Breakfast – 12 SP??

They have a El Salvadorian Food Tent at the City Market and I always see people with these plates of yummy looking food. We decided to give it a try. Mike and I shared this plate of Chorizo and Eggs, Rice and that Tortilla was stuffed with Cheese. 



Lunch – 8 SP

Tuna Salad made with Red Onions, Tomatoes, Avocado, Lemon Infused Olive Oil and S&P



Dinner – 10 SP

Mike and I shared a Smorgasbord from the Whole Foods Salad Bar.

I went grocery shopping to buy food for dinner. It was much later than I realized, so I grabbed a few things off of the salad bar. I picked at these a bit, but wasn’t super hungry.


These are my 2016 Goals

    I agree 100%! I really did think was a cute picture of him too.

    You seriously crack me up.

    Hope you’ve had a great weekend!

    Hugging Back!


  2. I know we often muse how much we have in common, and I hope I’m not repeating myself when I say the other thing we have in common is such handsome husbands! 😊 And you’re cute as a bugs ear too, …pre-menopausal or not! Ha ha! My doctor says I’m “Peri-menopausal”, which I think is so ironic, as the condition actually makes one “pear” shaped! 🤔😡 You have a great rest of your day – hugs, Ronda
