Date Night and Stuff

Last night Shawn and I went on our first official date, TGI Fridays for dinner. Man is that Jack Daniel's chicken ROCKIN! Then the specialty drink was a Mud Slide.....I was all over that for dessert. We learned so much about each other because we were not consumed by the TV. It was nice to get out and actually enjoy food and conversation for a change. Love that they have a Gluten free menu. He was able to order almost everything that he would have on the regular menu.

The Vendor Fair was awesome yesterday. It was so nice to meet new people who seemed to be so excited about the store. And, I love my new purse. Look out ladies, a purse party is coming in the future!

As I look back I remember all the times that I had game night at my house. It had to be at least once a month. Sometimes we had 10-15 girls here. What made me get away from that? I really cannot put my finger on it. All I know is that I am so excited about getting back into it. You never realize how much your spirit feels healed when you laugh with friends.

It has been a long time since I have been sick. Lately I have been feeling tired...just a little. So I upped my vitamins and rest when I feel my body needs it. Yes, I actually sit down Diane. LOL! No, I do not nap. A lot of people including my kids have been sick lately. How am I staying away from it? It must be The Secret. I always picture myself healthy and always say how thankful I am for my health. This doesn't mean that I will never get sick again, but it has kept me healthy so far. With this time change, who knows what will happen. I was up at 5am this morning and feel ready for bed now, it's 7:40pm. Sleep is a huge factor in staying healthy. I am so thankful that my body keeps me sleeping soundly for 6-7 hours a night. I know this helps.

I am not sure what tonight has in store for me. Maybe some Bridezilla and cuddling with Mojo? I do know that I will not be awake late. Tomorrow is gym time. Maybe I can even hit the shelter. My little Birdy was adopted so I may be a little misty eyed when I go in the one room. At least my Alice is still there to greet me. Not sure what I will do if she is adopted. ) : Don't get me wrong, I am happy for them. It is very bittersweet. You fall in love with animals hoping that they find homes. But you miss them like crazy when they are gone. 'sigh'
