So we headed down to Fort Worth on Monday and have thoroughly enjoyed our time at my parents house. They have been out of town and are coming back tomorrow and I really miss seeing them.
For fun we have went out to dinner with some of our friends who live down here which has been a lot of fun! We also went to Six Flags yesterday. It is so expensive to go there though! Between renewing our out of area season passes, renting Flash Pass, and the food and parking, we spent around $250! It was $20 for lunch alone. I had a hot\dog, chips, and drink, and DH had a sausage on a stick and a medium drink. Ridiculous!!! I read in the paper that Six Flags was considering bankruptcy. How could they go bankrupt when they charge a minimum of $15 per car for parking, $50 per ticket to enter the park, and high prices for food and drink? It is just crazy!
We have been sticking to exercise since we got here with walking our dogs and then running a couple of miles today and a couple hours of walking at Six Flags yesterday. What we haven't been doing is eating very healthy. I know I am going to pay for it on the scale later, but I am good about losing weight gained over holidays or vacation. I am making an effort to drink more water as opposed to soda to cut back on calorie consumption, and I have been taking leftovers home to eat as meals later instead of totally gorging.
If you are visiting the Dallas/Fort Worth are, you MUST MUST eat at Babe's Chicken House. The only choices you get are chicken fried steak and fried chicken. It comes with salad(the dressing is awesome!), homemade biscuits, cream corn, and whipped potatoes with gravy on the side. EVERYTHING tastes fabulous! It is a heavy meal and big portion. The steak is the size of a plate and you get 4 pieces of fried chicken per person. All the food is served family style so it is normal to see waitresses come out with HUGE platters of fried chicken for large groups.
Today we went shopping at the outlets and I got a black leather Coach purse! It is so pretty and I plan on carrying it for a loooong time! If I don't, DH will kill me :o)
