Weigh In Wednesday

We're back from the beach. What a bummer. I gained 2.4 lbs. this week. Not a surprise at all. I ate & drank whatever I wanted while we were gone. Fried fish, BBQ, chips, dip, chocolate cake, pina colada's, bushwackers (which incidentally, Portofino has THE best ones EVER!!). You name it, I ate or drank it. Oh well, back on track today starting with Yogalates this afternoon.

So we left Friday morning. The weather was bad in Pensacola so we weren't in a hurry to get there. We stopped at Lambert's (you know, home of the thrown rolls?) & had lunch. For those that don't know, yes, they actually throw the rolls. The rolls are really good too. Now this isn't my type of place normally. It's lots of home cooking. I can eat home cooking at home anytime but I was outnumbered. Luckily, they had fried fish on the menu & some delicious potato salad. After lunch we went to the outlet mall in Foley, AL & did some shopping. I got a couple of pair of capri's, some Reebok shorts (LOVE them, they're sooo comfy) & another pair of flip flops. Yeh, I know, like I needed those. When we left the mall Amelia-Ann & her friend Maddie rode with us to the condo. Oh, how entertaining that was. I think we laughed the entire drive.
They're 12 going on 25. After a stop at Publix for a ridiculous amount of food, we got to the condo & the girls headed to the beach while we checked in. I think it took all of about 3.5 minutes for Amelia-Ann to get stung by a jellyfish. She's tough though & didn't let it slow her down.

Once we got settled in, we played cards & had snacks while Dean grilled burgers & hot dogs.
We were concerned that it was going to rain the entire time we were there. When we woke up Saturday morning it was really cloudy. I went to the gym & walked 4 miles on the treadmill. After getting lost in the resort without my phone for 25 minutes I finally found my way back to the condo. Have I ever mentioned since I got married I have no sense of direction?? Anyway, we had breakfast & headed to the beach. We were lucky that it didn't start raining until later in the afternoon.
This was my view for most of the afternoon. It was fabulous! Once the rain started we went back to the condo for lunch & naps. Since it was raining we decided to go to Mass & then out to dinner.We went to a place called Crabs. It was good. I had this great little drink called Voodoo Juice.
It was rum & lots of fruit juices. SOOOO good!!! Amelia-Ann ordered what was called the "Crab Cluster". She wasn't overjoyed to see that she actually had to open the crabs.
After dinner we headed back to the condo. We played cards for awhile. I learned a new game & thanks to Sheri I'm also addicted to Solitaire on my iPhone.

That about sums up the first couple of days. More later.
