Some of you asked how the diet went last night since it was a "dining out night." Let me just say that it didn't go so good.
One of our favorite appetizers to get at Copeland's is the Spinach Artichoke Dip with fried bow-tie pasta. Can I just say, "Yum!"?? Wayne asked me if I wanted to order it. Dumb question. Of course, I wanted it, but I didn't need it.
When the waiter came, my all-to-awesome husband said, "She would like to have the Spinach Artichoke Dip." I was like, "Gee, thanks alot, Wayne-o!"
Then, the waiter had the audacity, to turn to me and ask, "As an appetizer or entree, ma'am?"
I was ready to tear in to somebody! What part of the word, diet, could they not see across my forehead?
I thought I did rather well, though - not including the appetizer. I had the blackened baked fish with some kind of Cajun cream style corn and mashed potatoes. Normally, I like corn, but this just wasn't right up my alley. Neither were the potatoes, so I drank water and ate most of my fish. Wayne had the crawfish etouffee and was later complaining how full he felt. I was full, but I wasn't miserable. Darn that Spinach Artichoke Dip!!
Today was gorgeous!! The wind blowing still made for a cool day, but we were able to get outside and enjoy some fresh air and sunshine. Alise rode her bike up and down our street so I got a little exercise walking beside her. Aunt Donna and Uncle Steve stopped by for a short visit on their way home. Wayne chatted with our neighbors and fixed the radiator in the green machine (the car he drives back and forth to work 35 miles everyday). Alise went to Awana's and is two steps closer to getting her pink-er, I mean, blue Cubbie vest.
Alise is out of school tomorrow so I took off work to spend the day with her. She has an appointment with Dr. D to check her ears again.
This is a pic from last Sunday before church. I love this dress. I got it off Ebay last Fall.
Wednesday was a free dress day at school. Alise and her classmates were suppose to wear clothes that had pockets. I thought all the kids would be dressed in blue jeans, so I put Alise in a cute legging outfit and stuck a black t-shirt underneath. It turned out really cute.
This is her Friday night dancing in the aisles at our church for Kidz Blitz. She had an awesome time and just couldn't understand why she couldn't be on stage like the older kids.
