I had a dream that BFF, our friend Bike Guy, and I were standing in a field for some reason. We were close to home and there were a lot of other people in the field. I looked up in the sky and there were several helicopters. One started nose-diving and crashed. I sensed that another crashed behind me. Then we see two other-worldly type of helicopters flying extremely low and headed our way. As they got closer, I got more nervous and all of a sudden they pointed their "guns" on us which were some type of rays. It didn't hurt but we could feel heat. I instinctively dropped to the ground and kept yelling at BFF to move. Then I woke up. I have no idea what that means, but I dream about aircraft falling out of the sky all the time. Dreams are odd.
Day #1 of my chocolate standoff went well. The worst parts were breakfast and not giving in to my sweet tooth craving after dinner. But I did it. I wanted just a little something sweet right after dinner, but I didn't eat a thing. Just my dinner then later a glass of tea and a 1/2 bottle of water. And Mr. Scale rewarded me this morning. YAY! One day at a time.
I've mentioned my monthly dinners (we call them Interesting Dinners) that I have with 6 of my closest girlfriends (one was missing this month). Four of us started this group in 2004 and we have only missed a handful of months. I never thought it would last this long, but I truly look forward to it each month. This month, our newest member KK chose the spot. We went to Smoke Restaurant at the Belmont hotel in the Oak Cliff area of Dallas. The menu was unique and I love trying new things! I got a rum cocktail which was pretty good and definitely STRONG! I couldn't even finish it since I was driving home. I also ordered the duck tamales with a fried duck egg. It was YUMMILICIOUS!! I should have taken a picture of it because it was a gorgeous presentation too. I did take a picture of the group though. These are my lovely friends:
I can tell I'm getting a little better with my self-image because even though I feel I look horribly awkward in this picture and I don't think it is flattering at all...I don't care. It is still better than all the FAT pictures from last year! :)
2 days and counting until the haircut!
