This is a VERY busy weekend!! Friday night Ele and I had a bridal shower to attend. Our niece Crissy is getting married in October and the festivities are beginning!
Friday morning I got started on my contribution to Saturday’s fun, the Rock A Hula Party.
I made a whole wheat pasta salad with green and red bell peppers, grape tomatoes and fat-free Italian dressing with dried basil, garlic powder and ground black pepper. Also added Locatelli cheese (yum!) I just realized I didn’t take a photo of the finished product. Duh!! I’ll do that later when I add more dressing and post it tomorrow. I always have to add extra dressing because the pasta absorbs it. It gets more of the flavor that way.
So last night, Ele and I left earlier than we might have because there might be a lot of traffic and we were right. We were just about right on time. Ele’s sister-in-law, Judy was still assembling the cake when we got there.
I didn’t get very good photos of Crissy the lovely bride to be, but here is a fun one of her opening her gifts.
Boy she got STUFF!! We’ll be going to her engagement party on Sunday, so I’ll get better photos then and we also get to meet her fiance, Matt then too. We’re excited to meet him. Crissy has always been very special to us.
My snacks for the night…
Hot artichoke dip, bruschetta and little cannolis that were made with won ton wrappers…what a clever idea…and yummy!
We didn’t stay for the cake but here is how Judy displayed it before it was cut.
That’s Crissy and Matt in the photo. We’re looking forward to Sunday’s party!
My result at Weight Watchers was much what I expected it would be. I gained a pound and a quarter. I was pretty off track the last 4 days I was in Florida. The good news is…I know I can get back ON track. In spite of this busy, food filled weekend, I know that I will track everything and get my act together in the coming week. I like feeling positive like this. My Weight Watchers journey has not always been like this, but I’m glad it is now! ;-)
Well, I’m off to try to locate my Hawaiian shirt.
Happy Saturday! Happy Ro-ock A Hula Baby…Ro-ock!!!
