|My daughter and I|
TRIP: We decided at the last minute to go to Austin, Texas to see my daughter, who couldn't come home for the week due to a new job. We left Sunday and came back Tuesday. We walked down Congress Ave., walked around the Capital at night, ate good food, and spent some time down by Barton Springs. It was so good to spend some time with my fun loving, beautiful daughter.
CONTEST NEWS: I got third place in the Great Expectations writing contest! I was among good company, placing along side Carol Moncado and Susan Ann Mason.
WEIGHT LOSS: I lost 1.8 pounds at my weigh in at Weight Watchers yesterday, giving me a total of 18.4 pounds since the first week of January. Yay!
MOVIES: I went with a friend yesterday after my weigh in to see This Means War, with Reese Witherspoon. It was just the kind of movie I like...fun, action, romance, and hilarity. I've also rented Tin Tin and The Four Musketeers that I plan on watching.
BOOKS: I finished Love on the Range, the debut novel of Jessica Nelson. It was such a sweet love story! Now I am reading Sixty Acres and a Bride by Regina Jennings and it is really good.
WRITING: While I didn't write on my trip, I am writing every day and making slow, but steady progress on my new WIP. My word count is not huge, but the daily writing is a HUGE deal for me...something I have been needing to get into the habit of (again).
FOOD: I made two new recipes this week. Chicken Parmesan (4 pts+) and Chocolate Chip Scones (5 pts+). Both were delicious and easy, easy to make.
So there is my Spring Break, a week well spent. How was your week?
