The first weekend away was to Knoxville, Iowa, to meet Erin's in-laws-to-be. Much visiting, laughter, wine, and beer was had by all. Erin is lucky to get such a nice set of second parents. And we're lucky to get Tim! (Lunch with Emily).
The next weekend was Des Moines marathon. Have I mentioned that I completed the half? (Got to see both girls and Tony too).
The weekend after that was back to Des Moines for wedding dress shopping with Erin, Emily, and Beth (Tim's mom). While I haven't seen much of "Say Yes to the Dress", I had envisioned a bit more angst than actually occurred when Erin chose her dress. In her words, it took her longer to decide what to have for lunch than to choose a wedding dress. I won't give it away, but it's long, ivory, and strapless. And she absolutely GLOWED when they put the veil on her her. My little girl will be a beautiful bride!
And then last weekend was the longest road trip by far:
|I told Dwight from the back it looks like he has a blonde girlfriend|
|The entire first half of the Nebraska-Michigan State game|
Two comments from Dwight on the ride home: 1) "Wow. There sure are a lot of adult superstores, aren't there?" and 2) "I can't wait to get back to My Fitness Pal". I had to agree with both statements.
|Turkey, avocado, bacon panini. But notice that I ordered a salad for my side and not the fries that I really wanted. Baby steps.|
|Why yes, that is a kitty ear in the bottom right of the photo|
Last night's dinner:
|Leftovers, and a kombucha. Before you judge that creamy delicious salad dressing...|
|Aly turned us on to these last weekend. I couldn't find them at Baker's, but Whole Foods had them. Seriously, for 35 calories, you get two tablespoons of the blue cheese.|
That's pretty much it, except that I am so thankful that we don't have to listen to political advertisements any more!
