Holiday Weekends are Great

by Meghann on July 2, 2009

I survived! Thursday is almost over and tomorrow around lunch time I’ll be boarding my ship to paradise. Woo hoo!!!

I’m sorry if I am a teeny bit annoying about my cruise. I am just so excited and it is all I can think or talk about at the moment. ๐Ÿ™‚

I got very lucky and was able to leave work on the early side today. Leaving early = less traffic on the drive to my parents!

On the way I munched on 2 Zucchini Muffins.

I ended up eating a 3rd one when I reached my parents.

Once I got to the house I joined my Dad and Sister on a trip to Publix to gather supplies for dinner. I kept picking up all of the wonderful fresh looking fruit on sale and my Dad had to keep reminding me I am leaving on a cruise tomorrow and won’t eat it. Old habits die hard. ๐Ÿ™

He may have made me put most of the fruit away, but I believe Dad still picked up some great ingredients for dinner.

I cut up Sweet Potato, Apple and Onions to cook on the grill along side the short ribs and chicken my Dad had marinating in Mojo Sauce.

I had one rib, some chicken breast, a serving of grilled sweet potatoes and some salad on my plate.

It was a wonderful summer time meal and the perfect way to start off the 4th of July holiday weekend!

We broke out Sequence after dinner.

It’s boys against girls and right now Kelly and I are kicking Anthony and Derek’s butt!

We celebrated our first round of victory with ice cream.

I had 1/2 cup of Edy’s Slow Churned Drumstick Ice Cream with Blueberries. This ice cream had broken piece of drumsticks in it and was amazing!

So apparently blogging while playing do not go hand in hand. Derek and Anthony are close to winning around. Crap! Got to go!

But first, a little Oliver loving. ๐Ÿ™‚

Cold Lunch

July 2, 2009

With how dead my office is today I thought the day would just drag on and on, but to my surprise I have been very productive and am only an hour away of being able to walk out the door. Yippee! Mid-Morning I happily crunched on some Trader Joe Peanut Butter Pretzels while some co-workers more ยป

Movie Night with the Sis

July 2, 2009

Last night I felt very comfortable in my role as an old woman. I met my sister for a 7:20 movie and by the time I got home after 10:00 it was past my bedtime and the only thing I wanted to do was sleep. I will never understand how I used to stay up more ยป
