"Week in the Life"

Ali Edwards project "Week in the Life" starts TODAY!  You can check this project out at     Then grab your camera, and get started!  This is the second year I'll be doing this project, and it's a lot of fun!  This is the first time it's being done in the summer months, which for me, will be a lot different than when it's during the school/work part of the year.

(The picture above is from Ali's blog; my first picture of today was my cat Patches, greeting me as I awoke this morning, sitting on my bed.)

diets. friends. life.

Blew my diet last night.  Big time.

Met a friend for dinner.  At Islands.  And you know what that means???

CHEDDAR FRIES---Island Fries covered w/melted cheddar & scallions

Okay, they were GOOD!!!  And I did have a salad as my main course, so that cancels out all the calories of the fries, right?!?!

The best part, of course, was seeing my friend.  Talking.  Laughing.  Commiserating.  We don't get together as often as we should.  Life gets in the way.  And yet, what is life,
but friends, laughing, connecting?  

So what's a thousand calories among friends?

Note to self:  spend more time with good friends.  Try to stay on your diet.  But don't forget to enjoy your life, including the occasional cheese fries!
