Saturday was lovely. There was nice weather, and I had fun activities planned! I had Saturday morning breakfast using my hamburger rolls instead of an English muffin.
My morning was consumed with errands, and I never got a chance to eat a snack. I did make a nice salad though, which I ate on the way to City Magnolia Spa in Urbana for my friend Carolyn's sprinkle! My friend Kim was nice enough to drive so that I could eat.

We had such a nice afternoon! The spa gave us the run of the relaxation room and the hosts set up snacks, sandwiches, drinks and even adorable mini desserts. I was good though, and stuck only to my salad for lunch and snacked on a couple strawberries and grapes. I DID however enjoy a mimosa and an additional cup of champagne. If there's anything that makes spending time at a spa even better it's having champagne to sip while you do it!
I also came home to a wonderful husband who had been solely responsible for the girls all day AND had this delicious dinner ready for me!

I had some dessert to reward myself for my restraint at the sprinkle today.
And then of course I kept grazing. I had another beer and many other snacks without taking pictures :-( Weekends + surviving events without giving into food temptation = eating way too much later on. Usually if I eat sweets at a party I lose control and keep eating things I shouldn't so I've found it's best to just ignore them. But lately even when I've made it through the event itself I still seem to want to eat to congratulate myself for making it through. Ugh.
On the plus side, at my "official" weigh-in this morning I was in my new decade! I was there JUUUUUST barely thanks to the hormones I mentioned yesterday, but it counted! So yeah, of course I had to go and eat more than I should tonight. With my sister's wedding coming up this week and all the dinners out and cake that a wedding entails, I hope I am still in my new decade by next week's weigh-in!
