Happy Sunday and thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life Blog. We had somewhat of a busy weekend. Friday was our 3rd fish fry at our church. It wasn't as busy as the other 2 had been but we still had a nice turnout. The fish tacos continue to be a good seller plus the shrimp and crab chowder that I make.
Saturday we had a friend come in from Ohio for an overnight visit. I wanted to cook out on Saturday but the weather turned rainy and cold. So I decided to do a "faux" cookout.
I made burgers on the George Foreman grill and for the chicken I changed my recipe and made a great lemon, garlic and rosemary chicken dish in the oven. Roasted some cauliflower and broccoli and had a tossed salad.
We had a wonderful dinner and evening together. We sent him on his way on Sunday afternoon after church.
I did my final weigh-in for the weight loss challenge on Saturday morning. My total weight loss was 22 1/2 lbs. for a 15% loss. I didn't finish in 1st place and not sure if I secured 2nd place or not. I will find out tomorrow. But, I feel great and am exercising regularly so that's a plus in my book. The work to maintain the loss will be almost as intense as losing it. But, I want to keep the weight off so I have to do what it takes for the maintenance plan.
Now onto my card for today. This one I made using the Great Impressions Stamps "when it rains F448". I paper pieced the boots and the sentiment is stamped in lucky limeade ink.
The background designer paper is from Stampin-Up's "tea for two" collection. Paired it with calypso coral cardstock and ribbon. My scallop edge punch is from Martha Stewart.
Well, that's my card for today so until next time.......God bless.
