Labor Day=Relaxation Central!

I cannot tell you how excited I am that a holiday weekend is upon us! And the best part? We aren't traveling anywhere! Matt's parents are driving up this evening (at least I assume they are coming this evening...since I have asked my husband repeatedly to check with them and do you think he has done so? Answer=no.)

We're bring them along to a party we were invited to with some of Matt's work friends which should be a blast. We really have met some fantastic people here from his firm and I'm so happy we have the opportunity to hang out with them over the holiday. I'm bringing along my ever so famous Oreo truffles and I'm going to make a humongous fruit salad. I always bring food to parties that I can't eat myself (or that I end up eating and regretting later). So this time, it's a different story. Along with the fruit, I'm packing up my own 98% fat free hot dogs and lite buns. They should help keep my WW points in check during the party. And corn hole counts as cardio, right? Thought so.



We'll probably head to church on Sunday and there has been talk about my dear MIL making some nasty squash dish that Matt loves (I'll be eating leftovers!), but other than that, I plan on relaxing my butt off.

I hope everyone enjoys their long weekend! The rest of our September is pretty hectic (in fact glancing at my calendar just now made my heart rate quicken) so I intend to make this holiday count!

Loves!

Love me some long weekends! In my opinion, there should be a 3 day weekend every month or so.

Sounds like a great weekend! Maybe I'm weird, but I'm with your husband ...I love squash ANYTHING :-) But my own husband seriously can't even watch me eat it because it makes him gag! I guess with squash ya either love it or ya hate it ;-)

Sounds fun!! Have you tried Smart Dogs Veggie dogs?? They are delicious! (I don't eat pork so it's a great alternative) & It's super healthy! :)
