Last week I felt like I didn't need a fill so I canceled today's. Now after this weekend --which I had little trouble eating anything---I am wondering if I did the right thing. I need to find a name for my fickle friend the band. I'm going to hold out for a few days and see what happens!

Good Luck to everyone with this wonderful --stressful--holiday season coming upon us soooo quickly!!!!

Cancel my fill please!

I just called and canceled my fill appointment for Monday. My DH and I were talking about my eating habits yesterday and he agreed with me that everything is perfect right now---why would I chance it for one speck more?? It is really hard to get into my clinic--at least a 6 week wait--but when I called she said if I changed my mind or decided later that I want a small fill --she could get me in in a few days.

Well alright then!

Thank You Band---For allowing me the pleasure of last night!!

Seasons 52---is now our spot for special occasions. We had a wonderful time and the food was incredible. We had a very cozy booth in the piano bar and the music was perfect. We started out with a free wine tasting to decide what we wanted and my DH was able to pick 2 he loved and I changed my mind and went for a organic orange infused martini ---yum---in fact I had 2. We started with a flat bread plank (kind of like a very thin cracker) grilled with artichokes and spinach and caramelized onions and feta. I had about 3 pieces out of 10 and they went down easily. Then we shared an appetizer of mushrooms stuffed with crab and shrimp and some kind of cheese ( about the size of a quarter). I had 4 out of 10--They were a little slow going down --sooo I had to slow down. Soooo yummy! Then DH and I split a Scallops dinner which was grilled and served with tiny pasta w/sun dried tomatoes and asparagus . I had 4 scallops ,2 asparagus and 1 bite of pasta. It all went down very smoothly. Then because it was our Anniversary they brought over the dessert tray which are shot glasses filled with anything you could ever want and let us chose 2 desserts on the house. We had a pecan pie and a chocolate one. The service was the best and the atmosphere was so much fun. All together we were there for 3 hours. An interesting fact is that nothing on the menu is over 475 calories! They pride themselves on that!

And the best part of all is yesterday morning I weighed 194.6 and this morning I was 193.4--I'll take it!!

Seasons 52

Woops I was wrong I called it Seasons 53---it's Seasons 52!

Our 20th Anniversary

Actually DH and I have been together for 29 years but today is our official Wedding Anniversary for 20 years. Amazing! We are going to Season's 53 tonight, a new restaurant that just opened up in our area.We have heard and read some great reviews. We want to sit in the piano bar area where they also serve dinner. They have an extensive wine selection and special martini's ---I don't know which I will chose yet ;-) after all it's only 10:00 am--NOW. If you have time, go and check out their web site. They have a lot of their recipes on Vlogs, with their famous chefs cooking. Very Cool!
I'll fill you in with the details tomorrow! I'm going swimming---

We had a great time!

Chris Trapper was great !! He wrote and sang(?) the title song in 'August Rush' a great movie. The song sticks with you-- kind of haunting. It was really warm outside and love was in the air! I especially liked all the young people 25-35. They are sooo fun!
Did I say this before in a wedding blog??

Tonight we are going to a-- bring a very nice bottle of wine party, in our own "hood",with 10 or so neighbors. Thank God!!! I have a band and won't be tooo tempted by all the great food. Now if I can just keep the wine to a minimum ---maybe --yes--maybe?????

Going swimming now!!

Having some fun tonight

Our neighborhood is party central---and my family loves it! Tonight we have been invited to a concert on the other side of town. Live music---Chris Trapper & his band--- excellent musician--story teller--a lot like Bob Dylan and John Prine. Should be a great time --bring your own wine and light appetizers. All in their backyard under the stars. And what a perfect day for it. We are having record breaking temperatures in the 90's here, near the beach. FUN!!

Still dealing with the shingle issues ---but no serious pain any longer!

Going to be a good girl and go swimming now--talk to you soon!

Well--- after all the pain, antibiotics, diarrhea, nausea, loss of work and money, I broke out in a rash a few days ago and have been diagnosed with shingles --not diverticulitis! My Internist thinks it might be because of losing weight and the band---just a guess---I say!!! Now he wants me to write a letter to the ER because all the symptoms I didn't have, like---no fever, low WBC count and no diverticulitis on the Cat Scan prove that I never had it. They just needed to give a diagnosis and the consequences were awful!!!

Feeling a lot better and off to a much better week!

Ate 5 or 6 pieces of Butterfinger last night and woke up at 2:00 am jacked up---who says sugar doesn't make you craaaazzzzzy?
