    Good advice; thanks. We'll see what kind of healthy stuff I can find next week traveling with kids to camp. :scared:

    Our kids got out June 5 and go back Aug 26 this year. They used to go back the first of August but some new state legislation doesn't let them anymore :confused3

    Whew! What a relief!

    I'm so jealous!! Man, I hope he snags a job so I can come. It looks great :goodvibes

    :laughing:

    Here is the recipe from dinner last night - very tasty and just 7 points a serving!

    Armenian Beef Kebabs

    Serves 4
    Active: 25 minutes
    Total: 35 minutes

    Tabbouleh
    1 cup water
    3/4 cup whole wheat couscous
    1 medium tomato, chopped
    1/2 large seedless cucumber, chopped
    4 scallions, chopped
    1/4 cup chopped mint
    3 tbsp lemon juice
    1 tbsp olive oil
    1/4 tsp salt

    Kebabs
    1 lb lean ground beef
    1/2 cup finely chopped onion
    1/4 cup chopped mint
    1 tsp minced garlic
    1 tsp each ground cumin and paprika
    1/2 tsp each salt and pepper
    8 skewers, 6-8 inch long

    1. Tabbouleh: Heat broiler. Heat water in small saucepan and prepare couscous as box directs; let cool. Toss with remaining tabbouleh ingredients in large bowl.

    2. Kebabs: mix all ingredients in medium bowl until well blended. Divide into 8 portions (about 1/4 cup each) and form each into a sausage like shape, about 1 in thick, around each skewer.

    3. Place skewers on broiler pan; broil 8-10 minutes, turning once.

    Serve with pickled red onions (which I did not make because I don't like onions!):
    Thinly slice 1 red onion, toss with 1 tbsp lemon juice and 1/4 tsp each ground cumin and salt. Let mixture stand 15 minutes until onions are limp.

    Per serving: 336 cal, 27 g pro, 28 g carb, 6 g fiber, 14 g fat (4 g saturated), 69 mg chol, 648 mg sod

    I am sooooooooooooooooooo jealous of you guys going to the F&W Festival together! I really wish I could be there. I have a request for you guys who are going to the California Grill- PLEASE take some pictures of you guys while there! It's me and Scott's favorite and I'd love to see you guys there.

    It thundered and lightening all night last night, but no rain, so I didn't sleep. I was hoping to make some biscuits for Scott to take to work tomorrow. I've been promising them some for a week. I make take a little nap this morning :)

    Maria, great news about Leona. I am so relieved for Greg and you. :)

    Brrrrrrrrrrrr... we had to put our heat on too, to get the chill out a couple of mornings. Miserable weather for June!

    :cheer2: Congrats, to Liam!!!! :cheer2:

    We are hoping so too...thank you to everyone sending him good thoughts.

    I am boycotting bathing suits & pools for the rest of the summer!!!!!!

    -----
    We all got a good night sleep here. I had a dream the baby came this Friday! Keep you posted I go this morning for my OB exam.

    WFD- chicken wings, leftover green beans, and rice.

    Good morning ladies! I was up late last night and early this morning working on issues with my iphone. Ugh! The new operating system came out yesterday and when I tried to update my phone it went all haywire. Oh well, I think I've got it all sorted out now. Good thing, b/c for service I either have to have a service person call me (and that is my only phone, not a good option when it's not working) or go to the closest Apple store which is in Memphis. Glad to know I won't have to do either now.

    WFD will be steak fajitas--leaving it for my mom to fix. My dinner will be on the run again. Love those work nights.

    Maria--have a great trip!

    Vickie--man flu is the worst! Wonder if we can get the CDC to start working on a vaccine for it

    Kathy--gonna grab that siggie pic right now! We're roasting too!

    Ann--how's baby Emma this morning?

    Okay, gonna head to the gym and need to pick up the house a bit before my mom gets here. Hope everyone has a great thursday

    Hey All!Trying to catch up…

    I am worried about Janice. Anyone hear from her?

    Gretchen, continued prayers for your Dad. I hope he is feeling better.

    Kathy, Thank you for taking care of us for our trip. I hope we all don’t get sick of one another by the end of the weekend!!! Lol

    Maria, Have a great trip! Can’t wait for a quick TR when you return! Are you celebrating your anniversary on this trip? Great news for Leona…yes, you are probably nesting! How exciting!

    Sheryl, I am eager to hear about Alexis’ audition. I hope you are feeling well.

    Nancy, I am glad that talent show was nice. How is Marisa doing? Did you decide where you are going this weekend?

    Charlene, Hot dogs? I can’t believe it! Did Andy eat them too? I love hot dogs…burnt on the grill please!!! Lol.

    Tom grossed Charlene’s husband out one time with the hot dog juice and then Charlene got grossed out at one point.

    Ann, rest my dear! Our niece will be here any day! Maybe tomorrow just like your dream!!! I am so excited!

    Laura, Yay for Liam’s team!!! Great job Liam! I am not sure how to a video.

    Vickie, glad the boy is better. I feel for you with hubby. Mine has the sniffles this morning and has not even taken a shower for work yet. It’s almost 9am here. I love Dr. Ross!

    Aimee, I have fallen off of WW in the past…it is hard to get back on track but you can do it! I am hoping I can get back in gym mode next week! Good luck! Prayers for Dad!

    Marilyn, when are you leaving? Did you find Ellen’s dates? Have a great trip!!!

    Stephanie, glad you got your phone issues worked out. I hate phone issues…thank God Tom is good at all that stuff.

    It is miserable weather here today. I was going to go shopping but I do not want to take Thomas out in this. It is supposed to thunder and lightening. It’s OK though…I am a bit hungover. Tom decided to make Cosmos and I think I had 4 or 5!!! I will go shopping tomorrow. I have to get some clothes that fit. My clothes from before pg are still a bit snug. Have to do the bathing suit thing too. UGH! I am down 8 pounds…so that is a good start for me!!!

    Have a great day all! Gotta go get my ribs off the stove. I parboiled them in water, apple cider vinegar and some liquid smoke, now have to dump them in some marinade! YUM!

    Ann~ maybe tomorrow? Please rest....

    Still not packed, sitting here with coffee, Lily & the Dis.
    I decided why I didn't pack was because I wanted to hear Leona's results in case we needed to cancel & also I'm having a big issue with what to pack with the people that are used to Cunard cruising....I think I need a self esteem check:confused3
    I wanted to share with all of you that this cruise is a gift from my Mom to Greg & I. After all the miscarriages, illness, hospital stays, infertility treatments, moves, downsizing she wanted us to celebrate what we have survived & that it has actually made us stronger.
    I have shared with Nancy that I have had major guilt about taking something so costly as a gift but with the help of Nan she taught me that Moms give from a loving place & she wanted to see me experience this. Not accepting would have caused my Mom heartbreak......I'm sure all you Moms understand that but I'm just not 100% there. Thank you Nancy for holding my hand through this, I love you.

    Going for hair, mani & pedi at 3:30.

    My DH is the biggest baby EVER. The worst part is that is has not a bone of sympthany in this body but he wants me to baby him when he's sick :confused3

    Wow, what a fanastic gift. I'm glad Nancy can help you see it from a mom's view :goodvibes


    Not sure on dinner - I am working from home today because I have to buy all the VBS and camp supplies and there is no point in driving into work just to go shopping when I can do it near my house. DH is going to come along with me, which is good since I usually end up with a couple of carts.
