Shoes, food, and life

Sunday, February 03, 2013

Figured while I was online catching up, I'd also catch up in a blog.

This weekend turned out pretty good. Friday, our renter decided to pay her back rent.. so we drove up to pick up the money before going to Sioux City. Once we got to Sioux City, we spent most of the time waiting for food since we were down there kind of late and got really hungry.. but we went to Olive Garden and had soup and breadsticks emoticon so it wasn't horrible for calories. 130 for the soup I eat. Went to 3 different place looking for shoes. By that time, the actual mall was closed so we didn't get the chance to look there.. so we went home without shoes and said we'd go back today. (May I just say I was frustrated and ready to throw in the towel. Thought I'd never find the shoes that would go with my dress and ones I would wear again.)

Went back to Sioux City today and the first place we walked, I found the shoes emoticon . They were pretty much the first thing I saw when we came in the door too. They are black and are kind of glittery looking with a bow. They look almost identical to my daughters. Haha. Then we got more walking in because I told the hubby I wanted at least 1 mile in today. Then I ended up with 4 more tank tops for under my shirts. I am in love with wearing tank tops under my shirts for some reason. I got 2 different colored pinks, a bright light green, and a bright orange one because they were 4 for $25.

After that we ended up going out to eat again. Red Robin. emoticon emoticon UGH.. Such good food.. but SO definitely not low calorie. In fact, 1135. Good thing I got my walk in and had barely eaten today! Haha. Funny thing is, I am still in my calorie range according to SP 1200-1500. I am at 1393 and definitely not eating anything more tonight.. I am stuffed! Came home after eating and then played a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle game emoticon I found at a second hand store then got kids put to bed. Now I am drinking water emoticon and catching up on SP and relaxing. emoticon

Also talked to my mother-in-law and she said she'd watch the kids for us on the Friday of our anniversary and meet with my mom to send the kids with her on Saturday. While I kind of wish the kids were still coming with for one day.. it'll be nice to have 2 days to spend with just my husband. Good quality time away from home, without any worries will be amazing. I can't wait to dress to impress in my little black dress and dress shoes. emoticon emoticon (Ok.. so it's not SO little but it is smaller sized and it has a little light blue.. but I LOVE it!)

    Is that Sioux City Iowa? I'm from Iowa. We bought a house to stay in the winters in N.C. I can't do anymore cold winters. We will be back in Iowa in April. Have a great week!
