Did you forget about me...

Cuz I forgot about this Blog!!! Well not really...just have been super lazy and not wanting to write. Don't even know WHERE to start!!!! Guess I can start with Fourth of July...

We got to go out with our friends to THEIR friends house out in the middle of no where. It was very nice! Had a lot of really cool things. They had food, drinks, dessert, and entertainment (especially for kids). The food was good. Brisket and like every type of salad you can think of. We ended up leaving and making it back to abilene to watch just the "pre-show" fireworks. It was super late already and Grace didn't really know the difference.

Here is a big news flash...I have started WORKING OUT!!! We got a membership to the YMCA. I have started doing the couch to 5K thing. Just finished my first week today!!! I stepped on the scale today and have gained weight. is this normal?!?!?!

Johns parents came in town this week. Needless to say, we had Taco Casa for lunch 2 days in a row haha. Friday night I had a MOPS thing so I ate dinner there which was good. Some...casserole thing. haha not sure exactly what. Then Saturday night we had left overs from thursday night. Sunday lunch we went to Bonzai with our friends which was delicious of course. I just ate a Salmon/Acocado roll. I could live off that!!! That night we had our Small group over to our house. Kids swaim while adults did the lesson/video. Then ordered pizza and ate here!! It was fun...but our house got pretty toasty!

Monday I ended up working at Taco Casa through lunch (so HAD it for lunch too) Which actually was a lot of fun because I got to do the Register!

Dinner monday night we went to Red Robin. -not in an elaborate mood haha

Anyway- it was time to update. Even though it was pretty..LAME! Thats ok though. Maybe something funny will happen in the next couple days I can blog about ;-)

Sardines are...

DELICIOUS!!! Seriously...they are! I had them for lunch today. I bought 2 cans at the store today. One in water and one in mustard. I ate the mustard one today. Grace likes sardines too but didn't like it in mustard. Funny huh!! And I just eat it straight from the can.


This past weekend we went to Ft Worth/Arlington/Mansfield area. Our church all went to the Rangers game on Saturday but we went down from Friday. For Dinner friday we went by Fuzzy's Taco in Ft Worth. It was good! I had 1 Grilled Shrimp taco, we got chips and guacamole and queso. I loved everything. Their tacos have Feta Cheese on them adn some other good stuff and their hot sauce stuff was amazing!!

We stayed with our friends Kallen and Kelsey and that night we went out on their boat till about 10! We had a lot of fun and watched the guys Wakeboard. After we got back to the house we went by this place called Purple Berri which is a yogurt place (like Nikkis here in abilene) it was great!! All their flavors (that I tried) were amazing!!

The next day we had donuts/kolaches for breakfast. Us girls went by this really cute boutique place. I got grace a cute dress and me and shirt that says Mommy of 1! Im proud! haha For lunch we had none other that Paciugo. It was in a mall. So we went to the mall. JUST for Paciugo (Gelato). The reason we didn't eat a big lunch was we were going to the Rangers game and were sitting in the all you can eat seats. We got there at 1 and the game didn't start till 3.

Me and Lauren decided to look in a shop while the boys went up to our seats. When we got up there John had a ball he had got from Batting practice! YAY....except... this OLD man wouldn't leave him a lone about giving it to his Great Grandson!! Stupid old man!! So John was sweet and gave it to him. Then another ball came flying and bounced off his hands and another couple got it. I was hoping that just meant we would get a REAL homerun to us but...the rangers played HORRIBLE! We left at the end of the 6th. We did eat a lot. Hot dogs, nachos, peanuts, and grilled chicken sandwiches.


So Genghis Grill opened yesterday here in Abilene. So WE WENT! Ok...maybe going to a restaraunt the first night it opens is a bad idea. Rice was crunchy...service was SLOW and it was not busy...and got grace Spaghetti which ended up being curly noodles with a little cheese on it with no flavor. She pretty much ate my food. Bad thing was our bill was 35 freaking bucks!! too much

and that leads us today...to the Sardines for lunch! :-)

Drink Water

Its been over a week since I blogged. Thats is a WHOLE lot of food to remember hahaha.And the "Drink Water" Title has a lot of meaning....a little later on

So since I cannot tell you every little thing I have eaten over the past week because 1: that would be extremely boring and 2: I do not have that kind of memory! I will just kind of touch on what we did this past week/weekend and tell you what I ate that I actually do remember.

Friday my whole family went to San Antonio for a mini vacation to go to Sea World!!! Friday for lunch I had my marvelous husband bring me a Bean burrito from Taco Casa for on the road. Then we just snacked a little too. We got to San Antonio about 5:30/6:00 I think and had to hurry to get freshened up and downtown to the riverwalk for our Reservations at 7:30 at this place called La Paloma. We went there because my mom had found a coupon online. You had to spend 100 bucks though to use it. Connor (my brothers best friend/roommate) met us there too because he lives in San Antonio now. It was NOT HARD to get to 100 considering their ENTIRE MENU was WAY overpriced! It was good food and of course you pay for the atmosphere but eh...overpriced. Me and John split a Filet. Which was good and the mashed potatoes and steamed veggies that came with it were good too. I got a margarita too which was good. (yes I occasionaly have a margarita...they are tasty) So after dinner I told my parents about Gelato (Thanks Robert) and there just happened to be a Gelato place on the riverwalk. So we went there. $8.62 for a little bowl!!!!!! Seriously Riverwalk why are u overpriced!? I just got Chocolate and split it with Grace and honestly it was really good! We all were very tired and knew we had a busy day ahead of us tomorrow spending it ALL at seaworld! So we went back to the Hotel.

Saturday morning for breakfast I ate a Cliff Bar don't remember which one it was...but it was good. haha and...my mistake...didn't drink anything. (more about that in a bit) We got to Seaworld around 11 because our shuttle from the Hotel was at 10:40 and after the line to get in the parkinglot of seaworld and line to get in etc. We first went to see Elmo 4D! It was cute...took grace a bit to get into and actually wear the glasses plus she had to pee in the middle of it. Then went by the Elmo play area. Then saw A Beluga story. Then we decided to get an all you can eat pass for the day. There are a few places in Seaworld where if you have a band on your arm you get a entree, side/dessert, and a drink. and you can go through the line as many times as you want. So...I got one...and my mom got one...for 5 people. And we were all WELL fed for that entire day!! The food at seaworld is really good! I was impressed. We then decided after getting the bracelets to go to the waterpark cuz boy was it HOT!! I was standing in line for a little slide that Grace can go down when all of a sudden I started getting dizzy....nauseous...and had to walk away quick. I handed her to John and sat down. NOT GOOD!! Hands tingling....black closing in...coughing (like before you puke, but didn't ever puke thank GOODNESS! that woulda been more embarrasing than the situation already was) I told John to go ahead and meet my parents at the food place and I'd meet him there in a second. After a couple minutes I got up and started to walk again HOPING to make it to the place where my family was, but not 10 seconds later I thought if I don't sit down Im gonna be OUT! So I sat down...black closing in again...and stopped some random people to ask for help. They gave me a bottle of water which I DOWNED and they called for the medic (embarrasing right!!) by the time he got to me I felt SO much better and he said "You dont look bad compared to most people I see" the lady who helped me said "you shoulda seen her at first!" John got to me right after that and we walked to the food place. By the time I got there I felt almost 100% just a little strange from almost passing out twice. By the time we got there too my mom was almost through the line with the first Double Bacon Cheeseburger/Watermelon and drink. Then she got BACK in line with me and we each got another double bacon cheeseburger/watermelon and drink. We had a lot of food left...the cheeseburgers were HUGE!!!!

We then did some other stuff....road a couple rollercoasters...saw Shamu (and am possibly in a movie now) and ate more food. We stopped after Shamu at the barbeque place and got brisket, french fries, and I got sugar cookies which were AMAZING!!

Grace played at Elmo for the last of the day. Did the carousel...water...road the little farris wheel type thing. And we were thirsty so I went to another place...got a sandwhich, chips, and a drink. The sandwhich was yummy!!

We got back to the hotel after 8...and WE pretty much went straight to sleep!!

Sunday we went BACK to seaworld for half day. We played at the waterpark first with barely any lines. Went down the kiddie slide with grace (no passing out this time) and had a lot of fun being cool in the waterpark. For Lunch we had TURKEY LEGS!! Those things are really good. GREASY but good!!! We ate those while watching Azul which was my favorite show.

Dinner...we didn't really eat dinner. Had snacks on the road pretty much. and got stuck in traffic an hour due to a grass fire! SOOO maybe I'll post tomorrow to update more considering this one post about Seaworld is SO LONG!!! It was FUN and I can't wait to go back!

Im a slacker

I am a slacker!!!

Falling behind on my "blog"!

Don't even know where to start....yesterday?! Did I talk about that?!?! Breakfast- Eggo Waffles. Yum!! Lunch- Little Panda delivered to the house! (BLAGH) Just not a big fan of chinese food. I like Japanese! Chinese is different...or maybe I just get the wrong thing. Dinner- Chick fil A! We had to go early because of VBS. We met the Blasingames there and ate pretty quick and had to rush to VBS. I got a chocolate milkshake from there again. SO GOOD!

Breakfast this morning I had peanut butter cereal and of COURSE had Taco Casa for lunch because I asked Grace what she wanted and she requested it. I think she loves going there to see her daddy. Not as much for the food haha!

Not into the writing mood today...even though I am just sitting here watching tv haha!

Trying to remember...

So I have a lot of meals to remember....

Saturday night for dinner had no idea where we wanted to go. We just kind of started driving. I then remembered there was a new BBQ place on Buffalo Gap somewhere. So we drove that direction and found it. Al's Mesquite Grill (I think) is what it was called. Nice building...nice sign! We had Grace, our foster baby, and Marissa so we had our hands full. I got the girls corn dog with fries kids meals. I got brisket, broccoli casserole, and green beans. John got sausage, corn, and a roll. We weren't impressed. Over priced. John said his sausage tasted pretty much like a hot dog. No flavor. Nothing was special about mine either. Maybe their steaks are good. Who knows.

Sunday morning we had donuts for breakfast before church. AM Donuts, which john loves. I however prefer Dandy Donuts. Kind of funny you can be picky about Donuts. We also stopped by Starbucks on the way to church and I got a Green Tea Lemonade. Yummy!!

After church we weren't very hungry due to eating donuts for breakfast so we just came home. I made the girls kind of whatever they wanted. I made me (when I got hungry) a Totino's Supreme Pizza. It was pretty good...especially since they are cheap! Had 2 smores too. I try to remind myself its bathing suit season but sometimes I just don't care! lol

This week is VBS at our church so we had to be there around 5:40. So at 5:00 me and the 3 girls went to Mcdonalds and ate. I just ate a McDouble and a couple of the girls fries from their happy meals. and of course because it was VBS I had a cookie for dessert!!

Now its Monday morning and Im sitting on the couch next to my beautiful daughter Grace watching Barney. I never mind watching these kid shows. She really has learned a lot of Barney and other shows she has watched. Like she knows her shapes...I hadn't taught her yet but there is a shapes song on barney!! I had Peanut Butter Crunch cereal for breakfast again....Grace has only eaten a peach. She's not a big breakfast eater!

This weekend we are going to Sea World in San antonio. Im SUPER excited but...won't be able to write till we get back so...I may not remember EVERYTHING I had but I'll hit the GOOD stuff!!

I ALMOST did it!!

Yes...I ALMOST did it yesterday...I ALMOST went the whole day with out buying anything to eat. But I failed...I bought a Grande Non-fat No whip Mocha Frappucino from Starbucks. Which was delish!!!

Breakfast yesterday I ate another Cliff bar. It was the Chocolate Chip peanut crunch and oh my goodness it was good. However I don't know exactly how much better this thing is than other things. It has quite a few calories and sugar...and well its not that big so it doesn't quite fill me up (hence the mocha frappucino) But I guess it does have some healthy stuff in it so....yeah!

We went grocery shopping yesterday...I wish I could show you what I buy at the grocery store. You'd probably be shocked. Its not a lot of normal stuff...its a lot of RANDOM stuff and junk. haha! Next time I'll list everything...too lazy to do that today. :-) So for lunch we had PBJ again. and I had also bought a little thing of macaroni salad from their deli just for the heck of it. Which was pretty gross. too much mayonaise for me!! I also had bought a thing of Gummy Worms and Peachie-o's (sp??) so we snacked on those.

Don't really remember what and if I ate anything for a snack. Ohhhh weelllll. For dinner we had a Skillet meal by P.F. Changs. It was the beef and brocolli one. Pretty good and VERY easy and pretty fast too. Only negative thing is that one package is BARELY enough for Me, John, and Grace. If there was a little more in a bag I would give it a 10!

Dessert I decided to make Brownies...mainly for the brownie batter. nothing better than brownie batter!!!

Today started off with Captain crunch peanut butter cereal (bought at store yesterday) which I LOVE!! Loved it as a kid too (from what I remember). I have Marissa today so we played at the park and fed the ducks Animal Crackers haha. Ironic kind of. Thats all I had available! Then we went to none other than Taco Casa for lunch at 11 and met my parents there. I had a Tostada that was a "mess up" but it didn't really hit the spot since I didn't want that today. So I ate half...threw it away and ate some of my parents nachos.

We are now home....watching tv...after swimming. And I am about to eat a Brownie!! I have to say I DO plan on going out to dinner tonight. Not sure where yet but somewhere good!! :-)

Well we DID have Mcdonalds for breakfast. A sausage mcmuffin to be exact (Dollar menu) and it was tastey!! Then grace had her Gymnastics which was fun!! She is still a little apprehensive about the beginning warm up stuff. She doesn't like following directions haha.

We then got home around 10:30 and John got home right after us too because he had already almost worked 50 hours this week. So about 11:00 I was already ready for lunch!! So Grace had Mac and Cheese, I had Spicy Beef Ramen noodles!! Man sometimes Ramen noodles just hit the spot ya know!? I had always only had the chicken flavor then decided one day to branch out to other flavors and I had no idea what I had been missing!! But I didn't have a very exciting lunch...

So we ran out of Graham crackers to make those delicious microwave smores. So I compromised. I just put marshmellows and chocolate on a plate in the microwave...melted it...mixed it up and ate it on a fork!! YUMMMY! I use to do that all the time as a kid. Would shove chocolate chips in the marshmellows and eat them. I shared with Grace today...and had to make a second helping because she loved it too!!

We swam today too. And of course swimming makes you hungry. Even if it is in a pool thats 12 feet by 30 inches. I just ate some crackers. Woohoo. This short paragraph could have just been skipped over...too late now though!

This afternoond we were watching....something...on tv. Can't remember what...but they were eating hamburgers. I told John...lets eat hamburgers for dinner...those look GOOD! So....we did. Rick and Carolyn's hamburgers here in Abilene. Pretty good! Not like fabulous but a good hamburger and to my surprise they were FAST for once. You get free ice cream with your combos too there....but the ice cream was pppphhhtttthhhh (suppose to be the noise when you stick your tongue out and blow) Weird ice cream. I threw mine away.

Came home about 5:30...bored. Watched some Tv... then some more TV....gave kids bath... then DESSERT! I just ate the rest of the chocolate bar from the marshmellow thingy from earlier! :-) Anyhoo...looks like so far this blog is working out....as long as people read it! HA! If not...I'll at least have record of all I eat! Welp- Im gonna make like an egg and Beat it! :-p (that was lame)
