Weigh Day Friday

So I have happy hair again! My hair is short, short, short! I like it but it will take a little getting used to. I think it looks much better then it was and I did get some compliments at work already so that is a good sign :-D I will try to get Dave to take a picture this weekend.  I cancelled my pedicure appt. As much as I need it, I just did not want to sit for an hour and a half. I will go next week sometime.

Dave chose to make Italian-Seasoned Roast Chicken which was in the March 2011 issue of Cooking Light. It was really good! I would highly recommend it. It was very flavorful and juicy! The only thing we had to pick up for the recipie was fennel seed. We had spinach and a baked potoato to go with it.

I got on the scale this morning and I am at 258 which is a 1 lb. loss. Frustrating that it is weight I already lost but after seeing the 260s on the scale this week, I am glad to see it going down. Reigning in some of the snacking and increasing my activities are what is going to keep that scale moving in the right direction.

Sunday is Dave's birthday. He will be 60!! Hard to believe! He does not look or act like it though! Hahaha! I will be lifting my "no baking for Dave" rule just for his birthday.  I am going to be making him some red velvet cupcakes with cream cheese frosting. I got a Wilton stand like the one below to display them. I also got sporty cupcake holders with baseballs, bats, footballs, etc.  He is going to be busy all day Saturday so I will have time to set it up
Safeway $13.69
We will most likely go to Santa Cruz or to San Francisco on Sunday to celebrate. He want's to go to Denny's for his free meal (dork!) so I will have to plan accordingly. At least I won't have to worry about liquid calories this year because there will be no imbing like in years past. Hope you all have a fab weekend! Until next time...

P.S. Trish at Crazy Little Thing called LIFE just got to Onderland! Please stop by and say hello if you have a chance! She is a wonderful gal and has such a positive attitude.
