Chinese Lanterns

Monday, October 08, 2012

It's been a short while since I have posted. This weekend I went to the State Fair (Dallas Tx) and saw the Chinese Lantern Festival. It was so totally awesome...and really totally awesome after dark. If you live in the area and you can go... I would highly recommend it. I haven't been to the State Fair in years, mostly because they didn't really have anything of real interest to me...and the price does add up. I felt this was worth it. I also got to see the USMC drum bugle corp and they had a girl scouts 100 years exhibit. I can remember when I was a brownie and then a girl scout. I managed to stay away from the fast food fare... I had eaten a late lunch before I left...I did have one item... Deep Fried pumpkin pie... I love pumpkin. I let myself have that item. It was okay... and I certainly walked my butt off on Saturday. I had been to the gym earlier in the morning.

Sunday, I didn't end up going to the gym. I needed to regroup. I tried this crockpot recipe for stroganoff. It turned out okay.. A day's improved some..there is something missing.. I don't think I will be making this version again.

I have officially made it past a week without bingeing.

Tomorrow, I go see the doctor and will get an update on my bloodwork. Please pray for an improvement. I have been trying really hard the past 2 months. Please pray that the numbers aren't worse...especially the one on the scale. I have to hold tight and really try not to binge if it isn't what I expected.

I leave you with a couple of pictures of two of the laterns. There were so many in so many shapes, animals, dinosaurs, long horns, bugs, fish, plants etc... They even had one of the Statue of Liberty. I couldn't get a good one of the Statue. I think I really needed a camera for that...the camera on my phone just couldn't capture it effectively.

    Absolutely gorgeous! That must have been an amazing sight!

I'll be praying that you get a good report back on your bloodwork. Good for you for having a week binge-free!
