Saturday was a pretty terrific day. Not in all ways but in quite a few. And it was Beautiful out!
Started out with Weight Watchers and the answer is…I lost 2 & 1/2 pounds. I felt really good about it. Mainly because I knew I had worked for it. It feels good when that happens. I will continue to work at it and not end up in any more slumps…Well at least I have a positive attitude!
I was joined at WW by…a special Birthday Girl…
Oh, No! The Sneakers are back! Well it is that time of year. Yes, the other foot belongs to my friend Kristen, my personal hero because she helped me start BCDC… AND is the aforementioned Birthday Girl! Actually her birthday was at the beginning of the month but we both subscribe to the notion of the “Birthday Month.” Everyone needs to celebrate all month. That’s all there is to it. Kristen had invited Ralph, Me and sister Ele to her party. Unfortunately, Ralph wasn’t feeling well so it was just the girls off to the party. But first…
As always the Big Salad must accompany me!
I found this Rainbow Salad at the produce market. Broccoli, cauliflower, carrots and red cabbage. I thought it would add a nice crunch to the salad and it did.
The finished product, and the leftovers live in my fridge now…a good start for the week!
A wonderful bruschetta and pizza dip…both excellent…Too excellent.
Pretzel sticks… :-( I ate 3 but that was it. Happily, someone covered them and then I was all better.
The sneakers hanging out with the barefoot people. Those bare feet don’t know what they’re missing!
Da Da Da Da Da Da Da Da…My Bruschetta! (sung to the tune of My Sharona…oh forget it!)
THE Plate! Black bean burger with cheese, amazing deviled egg, even more amazing pasta salad by Kristen and my Mega Salad. There was only one plate…but there was something else to come…
In all her uniqueness…Kristen requested a Monkey Bread cake for her birthday which was so incredible that I forgot to take a picture!
The Birthday Girl in all her adorableness!! I’m so happy to have met Kristen. Actually, she was new to our Weight Watchers class and our leader Mary Lou introduced us because she knew we were both vegetarian. Another thing to thank Mary Lou for!! Kristen’s the only one I took a photo of. Well she IS the Birthday Girl!
It was a great fun day and we were glad to be included.
It’s a beautiful day, but I may spend it with my nose in a book. Kristen gave me Pretties by Scott Westerfeld and it’s me and the Pretties for the afternoon I think!! More on books tomorrow!!
