Pretty Low Key Weekend...FINALLY

It was finally a calm weekend for us, which doesn't happen very often. Not only was it low key, but I was able to spend the weekend alone at the house and enjoy a Sunday dinner with Scott together at the house with just the two of us. That happens like once every 6 months or something. So nice to just be able to chill and eat and watch a movie.

Anyway, Friday, we went to Grampa's Catfish for Scott's brother's 25th birthday. Then we went back to their house for some cake and ice cream! It was yummy! I had a special gluten free chocolate cake that Scott's mom made so I could eat some, too! It was super awesome!

Saturday, I had to work until 3, but when I got off of work, I went over to Scott's and we made some (awesome) hot wing dip and mac n' cheese for our trip over to the Smiths' house for dinner. We had BBQ chicken, grilled shrimp, mac and cheese, hot wing dip and a plethora of other goodies. We also ate and watched two movies. It was a great relaxing way to spend the evening with our friends. We watched Daybreakers and Hot Tub Time Machine. They were both pretty good, and we ended the night with a little of the Jimmy Buffett Gulf Shores Concert on 11 July that they DVR'd. Such a great evening!

Sunday, Scott came and picked me up for mass, then we went back to my place for dinner (dinner in Louisiana is actually early afternoon on Sundays and holidays!) We had left over mac n cheese, I heated up some of my mom's wonderful BBQ Deer meat she sent home with me a couple trips ago, and steamed broccoli and cauliflower. We had some Boar's Head pepperoni (which is my fave pepperoni...and it's Gluten-free!) and Muenster cheese as an appetizer. That's such a good little snack! We watched JFK, which was on some TV channel...I can't think which one. It's a really good movie! I'm surprised that I'd never seen it until yesterday. We then headed to NLR to look around at houses for sale. There are quite a bit of them, actually, but none were open houses, so we didn't get to look at any, though there was one that I really liked and the price was great!

After that, we had some ice cream at McD's and then went back to the house for some good supper with Scott's fam. All-in-all it was a great weekend...and a relaxing one, too, AND it marks the beginning of our training/ working out/ healthy eating. We are going to go for 6 weeks of diet and exercising everyday (except Sundays) with no cokes or junk food (except Sundays) and see if we meet our goals for the next six weeks. We'll see how that goes!
