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 Happy Monday

Today was a good day.. Work was really busy, and I got a lot done. Then after work, I went to the gym and burned 400 calories on the elliptical (45 minutes). Woo hoo! Then..... I got my monthly massage....sigh.. It was much needed and I feel soo much better now! :) Woo hoo!!

Oh yeah, my weekend update!

It was a relatively low key weekend. Friday night, I went over to John's as usual, and we just went to Barnes and Noble. Saturday, we went to Michelle's for the usual weekly workout. The boys went bike riding (Michelle is getting her boyfriend a bike soon so we can ALL ride together, but right now, someone is left out, so I choose to go with Michelle so the guys don't feel like they have to wait up for me! LOL) and Michelle and I went to the gym. I did 40 minutes on the elliptical and burned 438 calories... then we went to the steam room and hot tub for a bit. There is a new restaurant in Katy called the LoCal Cafe, and they serve only healthy food.. OMG! They have a protein soft serve ice cream that is to die for. It's sugar free, fat free and 18 grams of protein. And, it was absolutely delicious. I live about 30 minutes from Katy with no traffic, and I almost wanted to drive back out there again today to go get some! LOL Anyways, that evening we went bowling with Michelle, David, Luke and Amber. I was not the worst bowler this time, even though I didn't break 100! WOO HOO! LOL

Sunday, John and I were going to go to the shooting range to work on my skills... but, every place around here is out of ammo.. so, we ended up going to IHOP. hahah I ended up with a headache later in the day so I headed home a little earlier than usual and crashed out... It was nothing a little Tylenol PM couldn't fix though! :)

See, I was so busy today at work I didn't even have time to blog! AHH!! Well, now it's time to give my dog a much needed bath.. I'll be catching up on blogs tomorrow.. Hope you all had a great weekend and a lovely week. It's a short one for me! Hurray! :)

Great job on the workouts!! I'm going to have to make a trip to Katy to check out that restaurant!! Maybe we can lobby and get one on our side of town?!
