I had a great dinner with Brandon and Lisa :-)
They just moved into their new townhouse last weekend and they already have it looking like they've lived there for a while. This is their dining room table:
Here's me with Lisa
and me and Brandon
and Brandon with his little sister Meghan:
I was joking on my NOVA Spark Team that I was going to dinner to their house, wondering what kind of dinner we would have with neither of them knowing how to cook. They either eat out or when Brandon did cook (Lisa never did) it was something out of a box. When he first invited me to dinner he said maybe he'd make a low fat tuna casserole. I know at home he would take pasta roni and make it and then add a can of tuna. I took some spinach dip made with FF mayo and FF sour cream so I'd have something fairly healthy to eat. Much to my surprise, they put together a nice little meal!
I was so happy they thought about me and had broccoli and carrots, a whole grain brown rice dish, boneless chicken breasts and corn. For dessert they even made sugar free jello with pineapple in it and they also had fat free ice cream!
I may not have been able to get him to eat so well. Like his father, he almost never ate they healthy food I cooked, choosing to eat boxed high sodium processed foods, but he is slowly changing! He said now that they have the townhouse payment, they have drastically cut back on eating out and I was surprised to see a lot of healthy choices in their fridge and pantry and a small amount of the hamburger helper, rice a roni type boxes! Changes we make for ourselves sometimes do get into other family members heads!

Well, we picked a nice and hot weekend to go away!! Thought we might escape some of the DC heat, but with the exception of today, it was hotter here than at home. The first day here, we spent all day indoors! Funny we come to visit, but here is everyone of us on our computers, LOL!
We had planned to go to Paraclete to simulate skydiving, but Aaron and Amber are taking the pool table home since Mom and Larry are moving and it took a couple hours to take it apart. Hopefully we can try it another time. Here it was before taking it apart.
I really enjoy the slot machine, but I think they're taking it with them
Then we had Meghan's b-day celebration
It was even too hot to go swimming, with the pool temps in the 90's! So we spent the day inside today just playing games. We had a really nice visit and are getting ready to head home. Tomorrow I will spend the day moving stuff into my new basement space as Brandon moved out this weekend. Leaves us with the full finished basement: family room, bedroom and bathroom. I'm sure I won't have trouble filling the space up!

Here's a little poem for the Spark Vixens and our attempted donations to the skinny Santa:
What’s this?! A skinny Santa?!?
Who ever heard of such a folly?
Never fear, Spark Vixens are here
To put the belly back in his jolly!
It’s an SOS for Santa!
He can’t go out like that!
He’ll scare the girls and boys if he's skinny when he comes with their toys.
I know! Hey Vixens, we’ll give him our fat!
We’ll give love handles, saddle bags, and bat wings!
Donate him our muffin tops, banana rolls, and chub rubs among things.
Let’s give spare tires, wobbly arms, and an extra chin;
Our Christmas charity will lead our being thin.
Jelly bellies? Thunder thighs? Check and check.
Even though its not thanksgiving,
We’ll even give away turkey neck!
Let's go Carla and Emily and Janel and Paula, Kenchris and Rory and Lilly and Andrea!
The cellulite’s a-flyin! The pudge has heard the war call!
Burn it off! Walk it off! Run it off! ALL!
And when there’s no more fat to give
And when the Spark Vixen are sexy and slim Santa has been restored with his holiday fat,
We’ll say ‘Merry Christmas in July Santa baby!’
Put the trimmings on that!
