Weekend Recap (Warning - Photo Overload) :o)

Happy Monday, everyone! Hope you are all doing well and had a wonderful and blessed weekend. Ours was really nice and mostly relaxing. The hubster and I started off on Friday evening at a black tie dinner where we were representing his company for a charity event for the Children's Hospital. We had a wonderful time! The food, drinks and company were great
and to top it all off - we won TWO FREE ROUNDTRIP tickets on this airline:
Jet Blue

We have been attending these gigs for the last 2 years - and have never won anything - we were SO EXCITED to have finally won and especially since our prize consisted of FREE AIRLINE TICKETS - WOO HOO!!!

On Saturday, I had the dreaded dental appointment, but it went well enough - not as bad as I expected, so that was a good sign.  Then afterwards, I came home, got my little chickadee girl and she and I went mommy/daughter Yard Saling - and came home with a great stash of stuff that we got CHEAP!  They had a HUGE neighborhood yard sale but it only consisted of 50 houses - which would have been nice - except the houses that participated were scattered out and about between about 10 different neighborhoods which was a REAL PIA!  Oh well... we made out like bandits so who are we to complain, right?! :O)

Afterwards, we returned home and picked up the boys and headed to find a Goodwill store to take our donations to.  Once we found that, we stopped by this really neat park along the way, and I snapped a few pictures of the beautiful scenery and of the kiddos:

Then Saturday night after a wonderful family afternoon, we went to 5:00 Mass and then came home to watch the Razorback game - which totally SUCKED! ARGH!  I mean, come on, WHY didn't our defense show up for the game?  Probably because we don't HAVE a defense - it's plain ridiculous!  UGH!  Anyway, they made it a close game for the first half at least but after that, Alabama completely stomped our butts!  *sigh*  Oh well... maybe this week will be better.

On Sunday we spent time around the house, ran some errands, and I did a lot of cooking to prepare for mine and the hubster's diet that began today.  He and I have tried several different diets over the years - including the last one - "The Biggest Loser" - but, we have found that the Atkins Low Carb diet works best for us and so we are returning to that.  If you wish to embark on this journey with me, feel free to join in - I would love to have you.  I will be keeping a blog separate from this one only to help keep myself more accountable. 

Sooo... that was our weekend - how was yours?  Did you do anything fun and exciting?  Have a great day and thanks for stopping by! Let me know you were here so I can hop over to visit your blog too!

Big hugs!
Trac~ :o)


  1. I love the pictures you took. Your kids pose like models. Very cool. We relaxed all weekend. I think I've watched the Greys Anatomy Premiere at least 4 times this weekend. I was too tired to finish watching it for the 4th time last night though. Yeah I'm addicted and have a serious problem with Greys. Oh I was excited to find out that ABC on the weekends is playing every single episode, they showed the very first one this weekend. man they all looked so young!

  2. Pictures were so great Trac!!! I like this blog thing girl! Looks like you had a great weekend. I will post to mine later and let you know what we did this weekend. However I didn't take any photos :(
