On the way home from the zoo, we stopped at a great pizza place that has an awesome spinach salad for an early dinner. I hadn't planned on having any pizza but couldn't resist and cut one of the slices in half and was able to stopped at that. We only had about 90 minutes before our guests were to arrive when we got home and started last minute prep and changing clothles.
I'm very involved with my high school class and always trying to find opportunities of bringing our class together. We usually have a summer picnic but this year we opted just to have a gathering at our house. The turnout wasn't that great but it was a fun time anyway reminiscing about the "Good Ole' Days". I didn't go overboard with food like I normally do with loads of stuff left over that we end up eating. Some people brought dessert and I made sure that those slices of pumpkin pie and apple crisp went home with someone else. My only indulgence during the evening was 1/2 glass of wine and a handful of nuts. I considered myself successful in a party atmosphere.
I might note that I am wearing the brown slacks that I pulled out a few weeks ago and were able to get over my thighs and hips but weren't quite there buttoning. Last night, they were tight around the waist but comfortable enough to wear all evening and the button didn't pop.
