Weight Watchers (Take Two) - Week 10 and My Scrapbooking Retreat Weekend
WHOA!!! So I know I said I expected to gain this week and boy did I... 4.5 pounds! LOL My friend and I went away to our scrapbooking retreat this past weekend put on by Savory Memories at the Mountain Top Inn in Chittenden, Vermont. It was FABULOUS and the food was AMAZING!!! We had cheese and crackers and desserts and soup (or chili) in a bread bowl with salad for dinner the first night we were there. The salad was INCREDIBLE!!! Dried cranberries, cherries, candied walnuts, goat cheese, balsamic vingarette... oh my head, so good! Breakfast was a buffet with lots of carbs and BACON... my fave!!! Burger and fries for lunch with a Coke. Buffet dinner with prime rib, chicken marsala, scalloped potatoes, root vegetables (so friggin' DELICIOUS!!!), more yummy salad, rolls. Repeat for breakfast in the AM and a tasty turkey club for lunch. I'm tellin' ya I didn't want to leave!!! Sorry if I made you salivate but trust me, I just did it to myself too!!! HAHA I will be celebrating my birthday at the end of the month so this weekend away was my "present". It was AWESOME! My friend also treated me to a massage as my gift from her. Thanks, MELAINE!!! LMAO We never did take a picture of that ;) Love you, girl. SO fun to get away with you... it always is!!! xoxo OH! I suppose I should've mentioned that I actually accomplished something in addition to eating and gaining a few pounds. I didn't bring anything to scrap since I wanted to work on Christmas cards. Plus, it's a lot easier for me to pack all one theme. I don't even know if you'd call what I do "packing". It's more like throwing all of my stuff in a bag... or 4 (good thing I won another one while I was there)! Try cramming that into 4 feet of crop space! LOL We had to take a little trip to Wally World to get some racks to put our stuff on! Anyhow!!! I set a goal of 12 cards to get done since I do make them all different and I actually did 13!!! WOOO HOOO!!! Go me! LOL Pictures of my cards to follow shortly.
