Dessert for Dinner? Yes please!

After Luke got his hair cut last night (isn’t he handsome?) we went to Carino’s for dessert.

This was my dinner last night.  I must say, eating dessert for dinner is the only way to go.  First of all, you are able to eat all the dessert instead of just a few bites because you are too full from dinner.  Secondly, you save calories by not eating dinner, only the dessert!  How’s that for some justification? Winking smile

I think I will be having dessert for dinner at least once a month.  I was in SUGAR COMA after this.  But wow, was it worth it.

My snacks yesterday afternoon included a Clif Kid Z- Bar and two pieces of protein bread with 1 tbsp. of peanut butter.

Today started early at 5am.  I was going to sleep in a little but our gym was having a “Family Fun” day so I wanted to be sure to get there earlier than I had planned.



I promise there is oatmeal under there!

After chores and getting ready we were off to see what all the fun was about.

There were local businesses there with free stuff galore.

I SERIOUSLY need one of these for my back yard.

There were two of the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders there, but Luke refused to go anywhere near them.  Winking smile

I MADE IT TO YOGA and it was glorious.

Minus the cramp I got doing this business….



When we got home we surveyed all of the goodies we got!

The Elf Grahams and the Post Great Grains cereal were snacks from the gym and I also had an orange at home.  The cookies and cereal were delicious!

White corn tortillas, the soy crumble/tomato mixture from the Skinny Mexican Pizza and 1 tablespoon of cheese on top of each taco.



Cinnamon Swirl Protein Bread w/ 1 tsp of peanut butter on top of each.

I got our mess cleaned up and laid down on the couch to read Catching Fire then proceeded to take a coma nap for 2 hours. It’s been a long week.   My children are so freaking perfect?  Oh no, they get to play video games as long as they are quiet.  It’s bribery at it’s finest!  Mother of the Year right here!

I need to spend what’s left of the day getting our clothes and stuff ready for church tomorrow and also getting a crock pot meal prepped so I can just throw it together in the morning!

Hope all are having a beautiful Saturday!
