Day 2

No working out for me today - in fact, my FitBit shows that I've only walked a paltry 3446 steps - but I'm feeling better. Maybe the jog helped, lead-like legs, goopy cement and all. Maybe it was the heavenly bowl of rice and beans I ate tonight:

Or the bastardized cosmopolitan I'm drinking right now:

Maybe it was the cute new shirt I wore today (this one, in crystal violet):

Side note: I can't believe I actually found the shirt I was looking for in Target's sucky website. LOVE the store. Hate the website.

Anyway, I'll take the better mood.

A couple of photos from our weekend, while I'm here.  M.'s parents were visiting, and we had a very nice time - fireworks, sightseeing, pool time.

4th of July - on the menu: White sangria, corn on the cob, watermelon, shrimp salad sandwiches

M.'s dad got one of the coveted star-shaped pineapple pieces

(wonderful dessert, from this recipe, called "Berried Treasure" - how cute is that?!)

At the World War II memorial in D.C., near the Wisconsin sign, naturally. Such an impressive monument!



While visiting the Pres's house is awe-inspiring, we opted to not to muscle through the crowds to stand a wee bit closer.

This is what 8 hours of sightseeing in 90+ degree weather looks like


  1. That dessert looks wonderful!! Thank you for sharing!

    1. I couldn't stop myself from eating it - I love anything with a graham cracker crust! :-)

  2. Do you like your FitBit? I am thinking about buying.

    1. T.- I like it, but I don't think it has changed my lifestyle that much. I think I would get more out of it if I used the online resources that go with it more fully (like have a group of people online that "compete" to have the most steps, use the calorie tracker, etc). I DID try to use the calorie tracker a little, but I am spoiled by Weight Watchers, which is so much better, and I found it difficult to use. I like seeing how active I've been for the day, though - weekends and days I jog, I'm always above the 10,000 step goal, and that's nice to see. But weekdays that I don't work out, it shows me just how inactive I am!! :-)
