Weekend highlights

My office was closed Sat & Sun so I had a rare weekend off to spend with Spouse. We had a leisurely Sat morning. Spouse got his hair cut and picked up a few items at the grocery store while I drank coffee and watched back-t0-back episodes of "Sell This House". Afterward we stopped in at a few of the outlet stores looking for some good clearance deals, then had lunch at the Robin Hood diner. Then we went for a walk on the boardwalk! It was incredibly warm and sunny and there were tons of people on the boardwalk and on the beach. I had on a short sleeve shirt and no jacket. We ran into several friends who were also taking advantage of the unseasonably warm weather. Then we stopped on the way home at the grocery store to pick up the ingredients to make mac-n-cheese to take to Steven & Thad's potluck dinner. That evening we joined a bunch of friends at Steven & Thad's for a festive New Year's Eve celebration. We had a lot of fun, and then at 11pm we all headed to a local watering hole to ring in the new year with a champagne toast.

Sun morning we met Steven & Thad and Joe P for breakfast. That afternoon we walked over to our friend George's house for his New Years open house. On our walk back home, we were invited into our new neighbor's home which is under construction. They showed us around and told us about the energy efficient features, which really seemed to excite them. Then we walked over to our friend Lee Ann's New Years open house. It was kind of crowded and Spouse had a headache so we didn't stay too long. When we got home Spouse took a nap and I watched some TV shows I had stored on the DVR. Then later that evening we went back over to Steven & Thad's house with Joe P and ate the left overs from the previous night's party for dinner. We all vowed to stop over-eating starting the next day.

I have been over-indulging since mid-Nov and am NOT happy with the way my clothes now fit, or don't fit! So I'm now making a concerted effort to eat right and lose weight. Wish me luck!
