Only 1

Well, I only lost 1 pound at my last weigh-in. Ugh! I was on such a roll, too - LOL. Hopefully I lost 1.4 lbs. this week so I can get that blasted gold star.

Denver was a blast. Tom and I had such a wonderful time. We realized that we hadn't snuck away for an entire day since we had Katie. Three years ago. That is so pathetic. :o) .

We began by going to Loveland, CO for the "Springtime in the Rockies Quilt Shop Hop". I found some cute quilt patterns and a couple of kits for some embroidered wall quilts. Then we drove to Denver and had lunch at TGI Fridays. It was nice just eating together - and not having to cut up anyone else's food first ;o) . We drove to Park Meadows to pick up my $100 gift card that I won. I used it to buy two super cute pairs of sandals. I was only going to get one pair, but Tom talked me into getting both of them. He is such an awesome guy. The shoe sales lady person couldn't get over it - a husband insisting his wife get TWO pairs of shoes rather than just the one pair that she wanted. I am one lucky girl.

Anyway, then we went to Golfsmith. Tom spent 90 minutes in there looking around. He loves going to golf stores. We found Brendan a little Junior sized pull-cart for his clubs. That way Tom doesn't have to carry them - Brendan always packs his golf bag with too many golf balls (last time he took 19) and it gets too heavy for him to carry. Hopefully the cart helps.

We then went to Target to pick up a small cooler so Tom could take back some BBQ from his favorite place in Denver - Brother's BBQ is the best ever!!! We picked up 1 lb. of roast beef and 1 lb. of pulled pork, some sauces, 6 buns, and a bunch of ice to keep it cool until we got home. Then he took me to Landry's Seafood for dinner. YUMMO!!!!!!!!! If I gained weight, rather than lost it this week, I'll know it was from the King Crab with the drawn butter. Oh my gosh. I thought I was dreaming!! It was so good. I have been working out this week to make up for it though.

I found an awesome workout show on Fit TV - it is called Shimmy. It is belly dancing!!!!! Very fun and works those abs! Try it and tell me what you think!

Brendan has baseball practice tonight - luckily the weather was nice today. It snowed on them a little on Monday night. Springtime in Wyoming is so unpredictable!

Katie and I both have appointments with the allergy/asthma doctor on Friday. Hopefully he'll have some ideas of how to keep Katie healthier next winter so we don't end up in lockdown again. What a rough season this has been.

We're getting the kids' schedules figured out for summer. Brendan has a week of golf in June in Ft. Collins, he and Katie then have a week of Vacation Bible School, then Katie has a week of pre-school. In July, Brendan has 2 weeks of golf (2 days/week), and Katie has nothing. August (so far) is completely FREE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I do plan on taking them to the spray park in Cheyenne and to the awesome kids pool in Ft. Collins this summer, too. We also have movie passes to a local theater - 1 kids movie/week for the summer!!! Brendan will also be in the Junior Golf program in Cheyenne. They don't allow kids to start until they are 8 years old. This will be Bren's 4th year of golf because we've been taking him to Ft. Collins for 3 years already. It should be a fun summer. I can't wait!

Well, that is all from here. The weekend looks cold - and quiet. Tom is excited to watch the EDS Byron Nelson tournament this weekend (golf). HOpefully I can get some scrapbooking in while he is holed up in his man cave!

Marti, well at least it's a loss! I will have to watch your belly dance class sometime to see if I would like it. Sounds like you had a wonderful time with your hubby!

Marti, I just saw your work out show Shimmy, and it looks like a lot of fun. I think I will try it next it comes on. Thanks for sharing that!
