Friday - Saturday

So far, this has been a GREAT weekend!  I left Friday afternoon and went to our hairdresser’s to deliver the meal Jodi and I had cooked for them.


Jodi made a yummy banana pudding, complete with lots o’ Nilla Wafers.  She also got some garlic breadsticks to go along with the Lazy Lasagna from Jamie's blog.  Since I was making one to take, I decided to make an extra to leave with David while I was gone to Fayetteville.  I haven’t been able to taste it yet, but David assured me it’s GOOD!  I’ll be having a big piece tomorrow for FREE Day.

After I dropped the food off, I headed for Fayetteville.  I got there just in time for supper.  Kale made spaghetti sauce and Kayla fixed the noodles (whole wheat for me, even!).  It was delicious.  But, that IS one meal I taught him to cook.


We got up early this morning (for me) and went to Tulsa to go visit the Stamps/Martin families.  I am SO glad we made the trip.  I got to see precious Harper – and she is even more beautiful up close.  Her little arms and legs have fat rolls on them! Sweet.

After we left the hospital, we went to the Macaroni Grill.  I am on my eating plan, so this was a challenge for me to stay on target.  If you know me, you won’t be surprised that I printed off a menu (with the nutrition information) and made my selection last night, not at the restaurant.  Did you know that most meals on the menu equal a whole day’s calories??  And don’t even get me started on the fat grams.  But, the meal (Chicken Cannelloni) was really good… and I’m within 50 on my caloric goal for the day.  Not too bad.

We walked around the mall for a little while and headed home.  On my way out of town, I had to stop at Target to buy this…

Foam roller

I’m having visions of Jodi jumping up and down with excitement about this baby.

This is a “Foam Roller” and we’ll be using it this week as part of our workout – we’re doing a “rest and recovery” week.  Have you ever used one of these?  What’s your opinion??

Tomorrow is the Lord’s day.  I have so much to be thankful for this week!  Have a great Sunday.

I am SOOOOO extremely, incredibly jealous that you got to see the Stamps/Martins AND baby Harper (of course jealous in a good way). I know you were blessed to have seen them and I know they were blessed to have seen YOU! I am hoping to make the trip in the next week or so. I can't hardly stand it!!! I am so thankful how well she is doing!

That lasagna is incredible and you are amazing with your fitness/diet regimen. You go, girl!

I'm jealous, too that you got to see Kelly, Harper and Scott! It continues to amaze me, although it shouldn't, how much God gives his children when we ask!

You inspire me to eat better!

Love ya!

We have foam rollers at the store. I tried using them to massage out tension in my muscles...that sucker hurts!

How will you use them in your workouts?

Morris Family said...

That is so great that you got to go see all of them and that precious Harper!!! Glad you had a great time!

Betsy said...

I'm so glad you got to see Kelly and Harper! I know it meant alot to them for you to come. You are so smart to pick out your menu items before getting to the restaurant! You are doing a good job of staying disciplined!!

The lasagna and banana pudding look yummy! :)

Kayla said...

I had a good time! Hope to see you Friday! I'll do some talking to Mr. Kalo!

I'm so glad you got to see Kelly and her family. And a little jealous that you got to meet HARPER!

That lasagna looks yummy...and yay for sticking to your plan at MG.

I'm SOOOO glad you got to visit with Kelly and the family and I agree with Meredith, a little bit jealous :) :)

Susie said...

Sounds like you had a great time in Fayetteville. I'm glad you got to see little Harper.

I can't believe what you said about the meals at Macaroni Grill. We love eating there. It's a good thing we don't go very often.

As far as that foam roller, never heard of one and truthfully I wouldn't know how to use it. Maybe you could do a post on how you use it.

Heather said...

I know you were a blessing to Kelly, Scott, and sweet little Harper! I have heard good things about the "fit roller!" Hope you have a good week!

petrii said...

How great that you had such a fun weekend!! How GREAT that you got to see Harper and Scott and Kelly.

Let me know how the foam roller works for ya. My hubs has been wanting to get one.

Love you friend,

PS I had to laugh at you pulling up the menu online to see what you would eat -- yeah I've done that.

MiMi said...

Oh, I am so happy that you got to visit the Stamps/Martins. I know that you must have been a great blessing to them.

I've never used one of those foam rollers? How does it work?

Jamie said...

How fun that you got to see Harper--I can't WAIT to meet her!!! It's been so exciting to see her beautiful eyes open this week and see Kelly's great big smile as she held her!

I'm glad you tried the lasagna! It's cute that K & K cooked for you when you visited--they're so sweet! I hope R will cook for me someday!
