San Francisco

Tuesday, October 07, 2014

We loved San Francisco! I have not been there since I was a kid and it was fun to be back. We did not rent a car so we walked. Our farthest walk was from pier 39, across the Golden Gate, and back. We're home now so let the laundry begin.

Some of my favorite places.......

    I love San Francisco, too! So glad you had fun. What's not to enjoy?
Did you see the "human shrub" down on the Pier? Also went to the Ferry Pier (#1), and loved all of the shops in there. DH loved the Hog Island Oysters for brunch!
Did you walk through Golden Gate Park, and the surrounding neighborhoods with the beautiful houses? Next time save a night for dinner at Scomas on Pier 42 or 43. Absolutely the freshest and best seafood!
Oh, I'm wanting to go back now!

Oktoberfest

Sunday, September 28, 2014

Yesterday we rode 8 miles up the Katy Trail to the Oktoberfest . He had a few beers and some great German food. What a great morning!



Best brat ever..........brat, kraut, swiss, mustard, and a pretzel bun. Yum!



.......and a Houfbrau!



We felt like sprawling under the shade tree but jumped on our bikes and headed west on the trail.

One Day Challenge

Tuesday, July 22, 2014

Today will be the hardest challenge that I've had in a long time.

We are going on vacation soon and am back to one pound from my goal weight. My challenge is that I have two meal "dates" today. The first one will happen at lunch. A friend of mine visiting (from out-of-town) and we're going to lunch with friends. The second challenge will happen at dinner. It's hubby's birthday and my mom is taking us out to dinner.

emoticon

I've resolved to have a salad for lunch, double veggies with my meal, NO frivolous side dishes, and no desserts. It might sound boring but, as I am highly motivated, I CAN DO IT!
I'll let you know what happens!
