Since it is birthday week and I have been craving it for awhile, I stopped and got some Summer Snow on the way back from lunch. If you aren’t from Tuscaloosa, Summer Snow is a shaved ice place in Alberta that is only open during the summer. It’s SO good and it makes you feel like a kid again. No, all of those weren’t for me, I brought a couple people from work some. My favorite flavor is blueberry cheesecake and then you can get cream put on top...it’s pretty tasty. They have all kinds of flavors from cherry to chocolate (which, I love chocolate but that sounds gross) and tons of other flavors.
So, that was my 572nd treat of birthday week...lol...my body won’t know what to do with itself when I go back to normal. It will be quite an adjustment period...but I’m ready. I think I keep reminding myself of my impending doom so maybe it won’t be quite so bad when I get back on the wagon.
I think I have decided to create yet another challenge for myself. I am going to cook at least once a week. I don’t mean a Lean Cuisine either...I mean like, get a Weight Watchers recipe, buy the stuff to make it and prepare it one night. I already have the stuff for my first recipe but I had to put it all in the freezer because I had no time to make it this week but I think next week will be a good time to start. First, it’s cheaper and second, I can get more meals out of it. The only problem is, if I prepare something with 4 servings, it’s hard for me not to eat all 4 servings...but I will do my best. Then, when I make it, I can take pictures and report. Yes, I think I just made it official. Next week I’m going to make a turkey sausage, Italian bread, broccoli & cheese casserole...and it should be good!
Well, tomorrow should be REALLY fun! Cassandra, Jordan and I are heading to Atlanta to see Lady Antebellum & Tim McGraw! I have always liked Tim McGraw but as you may or may not know, Lady Antebellum is my new obsession. I love them and their lyrics and their harmony. We are all excited. Sunday should be awesome too...I am going to sleep in, Whitney and I are going shopping and then my mom is cooking/purchasing a birthday dinner for me! I think after that...my birthday diva week will officially be over. That’s probably for the better...I’ve been feeling awful slovenly, swollen and rotund the past couple of days. It’s amazing how a few days of bad eating habits can make me feel like a Macy’s Day Parade Balloon. I will survive.
I hope the outlook of your weekend looks as fabulous as mine! Get some rest, have fun and be careful!!!
“I love when you tell me that I'm pretty when I just woke up
And I love how you tease me when I'm moody, and it’s always enough
I'm falling fast, but the truth is I'm not scared at all
You broke my wall
So lay here beside me, just hold me and don't let go
This feeling I'm feeling is something I've never known
FAnd I just can't take my eyes off you
And I just can't take my eyes off you, off you, off you.”
Can't Take My Eyes Off You-Lady Antebellum
