A little bit of this... a little bit of that

Thursday, June 27, 2013

Today was... a good day

It started off with rain and storms. I figured it would be a "hang out on the couch with a cup of tea, book and cat" kind of day.

My Grandmother invited me out to dinner with her, my Grandfather, two of her cousins and their spouses, their daughter and her husband. We went to a local steak house Hoss's. Older people like Hoss's because they have the all you can eat soup and salad bar, plus they don't put any of that "funny spice" on their steaks. I like Hoss's too. I think the food is pretty decent.

I had the 6oz sirloin tips w/ steamed broccoli as my meal. I had a very small salad, some french onion soup w/ cheese, a few bites of a brownie w/ peanut butter sauce and a few grapes. I didn't eat my entire meal, and I think more than half of it is now in my fridge for another day.

It was nice to spend time with my family. My Grandmother's cousins have always been in my life. She was and still is very close with them.

After we were done eating and talking, I went grocery shopping. I am not sure what I bought, but I spent about $140. My cart full of healthy goodness was ruined by the 8 bottles of soda and 2 giant bags of chips I had to buy for my boyfriend's father's birthday party this weekend (note I won't even get to attend because I have work)

I came home and left the stuff out to make wedding soup. I am not sure why, but for some reason I decided I wanted wedding soup. So, I made it. I measured out 3 bowls for the weekend, 3 servings to freeze and the rest is for my boyfriend.

Not sure what I am going to do the rest of the night. I am feeling a bit on the lazy side, so I might watch Netflix or read.

My Spark Coach subscription is set to expire in a few days... I am not sure if I am going to renew it or not. I like it and it seems helpful, but I am just not sure if it is something I want to keep. I got it free for 3 months when I pre-ordered the Spark Solution. Not sure on that yet.

Tomorrow I am dragging the boyfriend to help me with the Library at the Cove Relay for Life. It is a cancer benefit that our neighboring town holds every year. It raises a lot of money for The American Cancer Society. While they are not my favorite charity, I am still down to help.

I hope everyone has a great night!

    What on earth is wedding soup?
What happens if you feed it to your Boy Friend?
Sounds like you had a great weekend. I love the company of Grammas and Grampas. Yesterday there was a table full of them next to the one where me and my girls were having tea. Sorry, but I did catch some of what they were talking about and it made me miss mine even more.
Many of my best friends are 10-20 years older than me.
