Weekend Recap

The seminar that I went to Friday wasn't at all boring! The speakers were very interesting & I found out that my whole "I have a vision but it never really turns out like I want or it's way more difficult than I thought" is totally to be blamed on my personality. I cannot help it. I may or may not have shared that little tidbit with Dean as soon as he walked in the door!

We did something Friday that we never do. We went to the casino.  We didn't gamble though. How boring of us I know. We were going to the LSU Baseball game & the new casino in town as a deal on game day. Bring your ticket in & you get 25% off your bill at the Sports Bar Restaurant. Not to mention we can get there faster than any restaurant in town on a Friday because of the craziness that is Baton Rouge traffic.
25% off & HAPPY HOUR!! Isn't it pretty? A little known fact about me - I totally will order a drink based on color. LOVE a blue drink! That's not a funny reflection either. It really was two tone.

This is where things got out of hand. I decided I wanted nachos. The menu said "Nacho Towers". Ummm, yeh, that should've clued me in.
Hard to tell from the pic but this was the biggest container of nachos I've ever seen. It was in a tub. You know like one of those old silver tubs that people would wash their clothes in back in the day? Not quite that big obviously but the same type thing. Dean said they used a whole bag of Tostitos. He's not exaggerating. There was chili, cheese, sour cream, salsa, guacamole & jalapenos. DELISH!!! Naturally, I couldn't eat them all. However, I saw a kid walk by with ice cream & I totally wanted some. Not sure what was up with that. Well, I found something better than ice cream.
PISTACHIO GELATO!!! So so good. You may remember I first discovered pistachio gelato at the MGM breakfast buffet in Vegas.

Saturday I had some errands to run & while I was out I stopped at Loft. 40% off everything in the store. I got these pants.

 I'm guessing Dean isn't a fan because when he saw them laying on the bed his reaction was "You bought PINK pants?". Funny he didn't have that reaction when I came home with purple pants.

I'd bought a couple of shirts like this a few weeks ago & I love how they fit. It doesn't look it in the picture but they're a little longer & the cut across the bottom make them look better than a regular t-shirt. I picked up a couple more in different colors.

Saturday night was dinner at Caliente before the game. Dean's parents joined us.

Sunday morning we had bad weather but it cleared up pretty quick. I decided to try to run. It was 10:00 & pretty warm & very muggy. I set out to do 2 miles. I did it pain free & I even walked an extra mile. I was so excited that I went home & did some weights & day 22 of the Squat Challenge (185 squats)!! What's even better is I woke up this morning still pain free!

I'd had enough baseball for the weekend. Really, it was just that I'd had enough of not being home so I stayed home & watched the game on ESPN. I read a little & gave myself a pedicure. The day went by way too fast.

How was y'alls weekend?



  1. You pack a lot into one weekend! How could you not gamble?!! I love slots but I have to set a dollar amount for myself right off the bat. Not a mixed drink kind of person but that really is a pretty color.

    I like your pants, they look sort of red in the picture but really cute. I'd love to get a pair. I get emails from Loft all the time but have never really checked it out.

    Have a great week, Traci!


  2. holy crap you go girl! - no paim?! - man WHAT am i waiting for?! - i go on "spurts" of foods i like - right now loaded fries - addicted - joe's like "oh boy, here we go" - he know's once i like 1 thing that's all i eat for weeks - but fortunatly i'm 100% back on Whole30 and back to walking - i'll work my way up to a job HOPEFULLY! - i can't spromise squats!

  3. Unquestionably believe that which you said. Your favorite
    justification seemed to be on the internet the simplest thing to take
    note of. I say to you, I definitely get irked even as other folks consider
    issues that they just do not realize about.
    You managed to hit the nail upon the highest and also outlined
    out the entire thing with no need side-effects , other folks could take
    a signal. Will probably be back to get more. Thank you

  5. YUM....nachos are my favorite! I bought similar pink/red pants last summer. They are "out of the box" for me, but I'm going to try to make myself wear them :) Cute~
