We had a wonderful weekend! We took the kids on a hike down to a pretty little lake. It was raining, but that didn't stop us! The kids thought it was fun to jump in the puddles. After our hike, we stopped in at a store that sells roasted peanuts, and fresh ground peanut butter. We got a bag of peanuts, and a small jar of the peanut butter. WOW! Fresh peanut butter is the most amazing stuff! Sorry JIFF, I don't think this mom will be buying you anymore. I had some with my sliced up apple this morning. YUMMY! The best thing is there is no added oil or sugar. It is just peanuts.
My husband helped his brother move, while I watched the niece and nephew. When they were done, we had his brother's family over for dinner. It was really nice to visit, and with the added people, there was only enough pizza for me to have one small slice. Bonus to having people over when you are eating junk food, you don't eat more than a serving of it!
My husband and I went dancing on Friday night, and we are going again next Friday. I love dancing! I managed to injure my foot, walking in the parking lot in heels after the dance. I twisted it a bit. I am not going to run this week, because I don't want to cause any permanent damage. I will really have to watch my calorie intake this week since I won't be getting as awesome of a burn from running. It could be a blessing in disguise. I have really needed to get more focused with my calorie intake, and this week I have to.
I have a super busy day today! I have a meeting with some ladies from church to plan out an activity. I need to sweep and mop all of the hard wood floors, do a few loads of laundry, and somehow squeeze in grocery shopping. I am off to get those things done! Have a wonderful day everyone!
