Survived & Conquered Family BBQ

Wednesday, May 29, 2013

It was Memorial day weekend. My alcoholic brother (in AA) visiting from Alabama.

I was unusually outgoing due to lots of caffeine & 2 glasses of wine, lol.
My 14 yr old daughter & I munched on almonds for table snack (ignored pretzels & potato chips)
Ate deviled eggs, green & black olives, veggies & dip and one BBQ pork strip each.
Dinner we ate slider burger, took off bun, and some fruit.
Also ate a flavorful crab snack wrapped in baby romaine.
We skipped potato salad, egg rolls and dessert.

Did not gain any weight!! Still 140!!!

My 4 brothers and I, lined up by age from left to right. By end of this year we will be ages 50,52,53,54 & 55

My daughter and I

    interesting...I had 4 brothers and no sisters too but in my case I was the youngest, that's why I had 4 brothers, Mom kept trying for a girl, if I had come sooner there wouldn't have been so many kids/brothers
    you showed great restraint for a family get together, and your daughter is beautiful
    darest I say? your brothers could stand to join SP
