All Balls
It’s Friday – are you sure? With a holiday in the middle of the week, I thought today was Tuesday –
  1. This is a 4 (or a 2/2 day) work week for me…I am so confused.  
 2,    My pool is back. Hubby has been working so hard, and trying to do too much “stuff” around the house.  I finally talked him into getting a pool cleaning service. Sooooooooo – they came out, emptied the pool and began cleaning it. After two hours, they discovered multiple tears in the liner. They stopped, but I had to pay them for their time ($$$) We had to buy a new liner ($$$$) and have it installed ($$$$$$$$). Refilled the pool (2 days) and FINALLY have a beeee –u ti ful pool to swim in. With my two oldest grand angels coming in a week to spend a WHOLE week with me, it is all worth it!
Unsinkable Swimming Pool LoungerThis will be me all weekend!!

3.     I have been wearing “nails” for sometime. People always ask, “are those your nails?’, well duh, I paid for them, didn’t I ! For the longest I always had the “pink and white”. Lately tho, I have enjoyed all the new colors and designs so decided to do something different. I changed my nail polish – myself – 4 times in the last 10 days!

4.     Wednesday was the 4th of July, but it didn’t really seem like a holiday. First of all, it was in the middle of the week…….UGH! In the past we have always had big 4th of July parties with food and games and fireworks at our house. This year, hubby had to work, none of my kids or grand angels were here and so it was pretty lame.  We did go eat dinner with two of my brothers and family. Then we came home and sat outside and watch others shoot off their fireworks. Bah humbug!

5.     Back to my Not on a Diet, diet……I have had a hard time the last couple of weeks staying on track. But I am down -17lbs…..and still truckin’.

Happy Friday Ya’ll

Who doesn't love strawberries, especially on a HOT summer 4th. I do, and it couldn't get any better than adding white chocolate. My mouth is watering already....

Lovely Little Things
Today I am linking up with Jessica at and SMELL THE ROSES.

Last week's task was to have dinner with somone and "catch-up". Well, I had to chose my hubby.
Last couple of weeks we have had family committments, his job has him working 60+ hours a week, honey-dos around the house. WE just haven't had any time to together. So, Saturday night we had a "date night". Wanted to do something different and opted for dinner at 
OMGosh - what a blast.

On their website, it stated be prepared to spend a relaxing 2 -2 1/2 hours for dinner. REALLY???..It's true and every minute was so fun. It was very dark (woohoo) so no pictures. Here is their website if you wanna check it out....

I called ahead and made reservations. We arrived a few minutes early. The hostess asked if it was our first time and I said "yes". She asked if we were celebrating anything and said "No, just a long awaited date night". She showed us to the lounge where we relaxed for a minutes with a drink.

When our table was ready we began a journey that I thought maybe I should leave bread crumbs behind. We kept walking and walking and finally "WELL, COLOR ME HAPPY"....a tiny private room for two.

Tete A Tete (head to head)Quiet and comfortable. Personal and secluded. Let the candles and the curtains set the mood. This is private dining with a unique twist

Our waiter, Justin, was great. Explained the menu, made recommendations and helped us through our journey into heavenly bliss. We started with a salad,
followed by a cheese - spicy jack - fondue, with bread and fresh veggies for dipping.

Our main course was a choice of 3 meats (each). We had chicken, beef tenderloin, shrimp, salmon and pork. Along with cooking our meat right at our table, we had several dipping choices for our meats, veggies and pasta.

To finish the wonderful meal, chocolate - BAILEY'S IRISH - with fresh fruit, marshmallows, rice krispy treats and a brownie for dipping!

Hubby and I talked, ate, laughed, ate, were silly, ate, talked - we had so much fun and we were there
2 hours!

Next weeks task - watch your favorite movie...
Anybody, anybody - which movie will I be watching???
