My name is Laurie. I'm 34 and I live in a suburb of Houston, TX. My life isn't super exciting or ultra dramatic, but I love it! My blogs are just a peek into my life as I know it. I'm quite random and have an opinion on everything, but I love everyone's aspect on things, even if I disagree. The world would be quite boring if not! :-)


Happy Monday?

lol.. nah, not really! It's a typical Monday on this side of the world.

I was supposed to be going to the Britney Spears' Circus show today, but my friend that I had tickets with is ill, so we sold the tickets. I'm sure it would have been a great show, but honestly the money sounds better to me right now. I am trying so hard to get ahead the game as far as finances go!

I do hope everyone had a great weekend! I enjoyed mine! :)
Friday, John and I met Michelle, Luke and Amber for Saltgrass.. the steak was uber delicious, and the mushrooms as well! John is starting to complain that eating my leftovers is making him gain! EEK!

Saturday, John and I went to Michelle and David's.. the boys went bike riding, and the girls went bathing suit shopping, and then we were GOING to go to the gym.. well, it didn't end up happening, b/c shopping for bathing suits for post ops is not so easy! I found two that I got.. One for water aerobics and for swimming at the gym.. and the other for fun swimming. I actually tried on a bikini and promptly changed my mind! LOL I got a two piece tankini for fun swimming, and a one piece "slimmer" suit for water aerobics/lap swimming. Later, John and I went to the factory stores in Cypress looking for some shoes..

Game night was Saturday night, and I had a great time as usual. I did have a few drinks, and they really hit me! LOL I was feeling a little ill, but I made it through, and had a great time!

Sunday, we ended going out to David and Michelle's yet again.. this time for tacos and to watch a movie. I was a little sleepy, so ended up taking a little nap through the movie! lol
When I went home Sunday evening, I watched Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone with my mom. John got her reading the books too, so we're watching the movies together as she finishes the books! lol

Well, that was my weekend in a nutshell.. no, I didn't work out, so no success there. I did, however, not snack during the day, and was fairly successful with my weekend goals. I did walk a lot, so maybe that counts for a workout? LOL

LOL - had to laugh at the John complaining about eating your feltovers as my hubby has gained like 15 kgs (33 lbs)since I had my op.

I think that shopping is a valid form of exercise!! :-)

I am looking forward to the time when I don't need a Valium to go bathing suit shopping ;)

Kim said...

Walking totally counts, so you met your goals! Sounds like a great weekend! Mine was so low keyed I'm suprised I'm not in a coma.

What a great weekend! Yahoo!

I had some trouble with bathing suit shopping (before vacation)too. Will that ever go away?

Yes! Shopping and trying on clothes is DEFINITELY exercise, in my book!

I'm glad to hear that things are going well. I hope your Tuesday is fabulous too!
