WONDERIFIC WEDNESDAY !!!!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY HAPPIEST HUBBY !!!!! .. :) Guess you can say he was his parents "tax refund" that year .. lol lol lol lol ..
He is definately a goof today .. not to boot but he got a good night sleep ... Oh oh world .. look out !!! lol lol
But anyway .. Yesterday was a really good day .. and I was legitamately pooped by the time I crawled into bed last night ..
I drove to meet up with him downtown, after finishing my blog and we played our free money .. and we got our allowed percentage to make us happy !!! :) have to get at LEAST 50% ..:)
Well -- we had about an hour to waste before the buffet opened up .. and neither of us had breakfast, so we actually went in early, and had lunch at 11ish .. :) I had my melting .. they had Buddha's delight on the buffet .. that's my favorite chinese dish ... tofu .. YUMMMM and it did NOT disappoint me .. No .. I didn't stuff my plate full, but I did have 2 helpings .. lol lol .. and of course other things .. fried shrimp, and beef stirfry which wasn't the greatest .. the beef was tough ... but I didn't take much and still enjoyed it .. :) For dessert I had angel food cake, with strawberries and whipped cream .... YUMMM Love angel food cake .. :)
We talked about something he could take to Wii Bowling today for his birthday treat .. and I suggested little cupcakes from the store .. there is only 7 people .. IF the other 2 come it's 9 .. but he hemmed and hawed; so that subject was dropped ..
Well -- after lunch we went our separate ways .. I wanted to stop at Goodwill and get an oversized mans shirt to use as a painting/sloppy smock at my class at the stamp show .. and found one .. an old button down bowling shirt it looks like .. lol .. but it's big enough that I can put it over whatever I'm wearing whether it be tshirt or sweatshirt ..
I was going to stop at Meijer; and pick up an onion so I could make him up a batch of his chip dip for his birthday .. and thought.. Hey .. I could get those ready made cookies, that you just pop in the oven .. well I lucked out .. they were on sale 2 for $4 .. so that's even better .. I got a package of chocolate chip and one of peanut butter .. Those are flavors we enjoy, so whatever doesn't go, he can bring back .. made up 48 cookies .. :) He liked that idea .. :)
So ... I got home and baked them up ..
It turned out to be a nice day ..so between my walking around the casino; and the weather turned gorgeous again; so all my stops I made on the way home .. Goodwill, Walmart, and Meijer .... I parked out at the end of the lots, and walked around the stores ...
Then I got home and putzed in the kitchen baking up the cookies .. and putzed around the house ..
Later in the afternoon, I played some Wii, because I just didn't feel like sitting around watching TV .. Hubby was upstairs napping (he didn't get a good night sleep the night before and was up at 2 or 3ish .. )
I was surprised at my end of the day download .. 18000 plus steps .. ... Okay -- I use this as a tool, and know it's a tool, and this is the first one that I keep on 24/7 (less baths, showers, dishes, and anytime my hands are in water) .. I wore my old ones whenever I would specifically go out for walks, and sometimes broke that 10000 mark .. This is a serious question .. "Could it be possible that I actually DO do that many steps just "being??" .. ?????" With the exception of Sunday and Monday .. (behabbing my tennis shoe blowout from Saturday) .. my averages have been like that ..
4/1 = 9537
4/2 = 3055
4/3 = 9969
4/4 = 10678
4/5 = 10436
4/6 = 13715
4/7 = 3876
4/8 = 17373
4/9 = 9985
4/16 = 18616
So .. knowing that I always wore my stepometer only when I was specifically going for walks .. I've had this stepometer since 3/27 .. :) so seeing the "all day" downloads ... the 18000 could be possible; because I was pooped by the time I crawled into bed last night .. :) The things I learn !!! even when I'm not trying .. but IT IS still a tool .. :) and nothing more than my scale ..... :)
ANYWHO ... I had brought down all hubby's stuff before going to the casino, and stored them down here because if I would have had to go to my room to get them, I would have had to sneak downstairs (because our bed lies in direct view down the hallway upstairs . it's hard to sneak) ...lol .. or waited until he fell asleep, and for as tired as I was; I was thankful that I didn't have to go that direction .. lol .. because I had everything all stored downstairs .. :) in the closet .. :)
Once I figured he wasn't coming down anymore .. the gleesome threesome and I got the goodies out .. :)
They were so proud of their card they made for him .. :)
Now .. I was TOTALLY surprised with my end of the day numbers when I finally crawled into bed ...
Hubby came downstairs and they had expanded their celebrating .. *hmmm* .. thankfully they didn't know how to open the wine, so they celebrated with gatorade .. :)
Today - while hubby is at his Wii Bowling, I am making up a batch of his chip dip for him .. :) I think I will play up in my playroom this afternoon .. I have 1 more card to make .. mom's mothers day card ....
It's a gloomy day today, and they are talking for more severe storms coming in this afternoon .. sooo I'm thinking it will be a quiet day for me .. possibly laundry catchup today ... :)
With that being said, I wish everyone a WONDERIFIC WEDNESDAY !!!! I hope everyone has a great day !!!!! :)
