I am actually happy that it’s Monday today.  That’s unusual, hehe!  I am so thrilled that it’s a 3 day work week and that I will get 4 glorious days in a row off work, ahhhhh!

I bought all the ingredients I needed for the pies that I’m in charge of for Thanksgiving.  I think that’s what I will be doing Wednesday evening.  I love waking up on Thanksgiving morning and watching the parade and the dog show and I don’t like to be rushing around the kitchen trying to finish my sides or pies or whatever I’m supposed to bring that year.

I’m completely wiped out from my weekend.  The movie was FANTASTIC!  I’m not a HUGE Twilight fan, I’ve read all the books (and have them autographed!!!), seen the movies, but I don’t have to go on opening night, or even opening weekend.  But OMG!  To say that I loved part 1 of Breaking Dawn is an understatement!  It was so good, I’m going to go again this weekend and take middle daughter that had to miss it.  SO GOOD!

The cheer event was fine, if not reallllllly long.  50 miles to get there, they compete for 3 minutes and then you wait 4 hours for awards.  It was definitely a learning experience.  Our school has never done competitive cheer before so none of us knew what to expect.  The girls had been having a really hard time hitting all the stunts at practice all week and during the competition, they nailed it!  I couldn’t have been more proud of them 🙂  They didn’t qualify to state championships but that’s OK.  We wanted them to hit and they did!  (Some of those cheer moms (and dads!) are NUTS!)

My Eagles kicked some whiny Eli Manning butt last night so I was a very happy girl 😀  Vince Young played an amazing game, especially the long drive in the 4th quarter.  With so many of our players out injured I wasn’t all that optimistic going into it honestly but I’m very happy now!  We are just barely hanging on to our season, eek!

Weigh-in this morning was great.  I broke 2 of my goals 🙂  Passed my halfway mark and into a new 10’s group!

I took the last of the baked potato soup out of the freezer for lunch today.  I’m so looking forward to that.  And for dinner tonight I’m thinking either a turkey burger or a chicken caesar salad, or possibly greek yogurt with granola and fruit.  Guess it depends on what I’m feeling like after work!

Some of you (janee 😉 ) have asked where I get some of my recipes.  I get some from watching Hungry Girl on Food Network and check out the recipes on her website, http://www.hungry-girl.com/, the other website that I stalk daily is Gina’s website, http://www.skinnytaste.com/.  I got the won ton idea from HG and the baked potato soup from ST!  I hope you all love them as much as I do 🙂  Enjoy!
