Rachel and I got our hairs prettied up and then it was time to go home.
(not only that but it's spicy!!)
Dinner: grilled filet mignon, salad with Asian dressing, and baked potato with cheese and a little FF Ranch (10 pts; 571 calories) So good! The steaks were in the "reduced for quick sale" bin so I got a great deal.
During dinner Chuck told me about my birthday present. It has been a life goal of mine to get to pet a penguin. It's just something that I've wanted to do at least once in my lifetime. My sweet husband has arranged a "penguin encounter" with the folks at Moody Gardens for me and my family to get a personal penguin tour and get to pet and hug on a penguin!!!!
I am so excited. I swear I almost cried when he told me. And I am so touched that he went through the trouble of making all the arrangements. It will just be the 4 of us and the penguin keeper getting a private tour with the penguins. I just can't believe it.
In case you did not know this about me, I'm sort of a bird freak. I have a lesser sulphur crest cockatoo, Moluccan Cockatoo, and a blue & gold macaw. I grew up with over 100 chickens which I had named and various birds that we rescued and eventually set free. Great childhood. :)
Since we're going camping this weekend the penguin encounter will have to wait until the following Friday. Did I mention I was excited? No? I'm so excited!!
I was tired today! I mean really tired. Before bed I got in a "screw it, give me some chocolate" mood. Grabbed some chocolate before I snapped back into losing weight mode.
Snack: Chocolate (4 pts; 200 calories estimate)
Y'all have a great weekend! I look forward to sharing my camping and munching with you when I get back. :)
