I realize that I shouldn’t be this excited about Light Ranch...but I am. I have another softball game tonight but before I go, I need to eat something so I’m not starving after the game and I don’t have time to go home SO I’m going to McAlister’s. I have recently discovered their “Choose Two” menu (which I may have already told you about) and you get to choose two from potatoes, sandwiches, salads & soups...you get half a serving and all the nutrition facts are on their site. The POINT is they have a grilled chicken salad that has chicken, bacon, cheese and light ranch AND I get a part of a baked potato. I’m pretty excited about it because their light ranch is actually pretty good.
Ok, now that I’ve officially gone overboard & fatted out over light ranch, I should probably move on. Honestly, there isn’t too much to move on to...I don’t have a whole lot going on and I don’t really have any new thoughts that I haven’t spoken or that pertain to weight loss in any way. This will probably be my last blog until Monday. I have a lot going on tomorrow and this weekend...so...I know...I’ll tell you my big weekend plans.
First, Jordan is coming down tomorrow. We are going to the Slash Pine Poetry Festival. If you aren’t a writer or poetry lover, you may not find this interesting. This festival is pretty cool though because it is over the course of a couple of days and they go to all of these different locations in town reading poems. Tomorrow night, the reading is at Kentuck and then on Saturday, there are some on campus, the Bama Theatre and Little Willie’s...just a bunch of cool little venues in Tuscaloosa. We won’t go to all of them BECAUSE there is ALSO a crawfish boil in Tuscaloosa this weekend and we may get to go to it for a little bit. This is the first year they are doing this in Tuscaloosa...there will be local bands, Clay Walker and lots of food and crafts.
Am I the biggest fan of Clay Walker? No. Though I did Google him today and aside from the hat, he’s SORT OF yummy looking.
Anyway, I just think that since Tuscaloosa is so small, and I along with most other people always complain that there is nothing to do here, that I should take up anything that Tuscaloosa has to offer. It’s not my ideal place as I am regularly hearing of things to do in Birmingham which is less than an hour away but I have to say that Tuscaloosa is constantly trying to add new shops and parks...and they are even building an amphitheatre so I have to give credit where credit is due. In addition to both of the festivals, Jordan’s little cousin Saylor Grace is having a birthday party on Saturday and I’m always game for those.
So-as you can see, it’s a packed weekend. Maybe I will take some pictures and post them on Monday.
I hope you all have a great weekend!
Before I go completely...I would like for you to keep my BFF’s Whitney & Xay in your thoughts & prayers! I am sending healthy thoughts!
