I’m loving it!
From age 18 until today, I hated McDonald’s. The only time I’d partake is for my annual Shamrock Shake in March. But that fruit and walnut salad they advertise on TV now looks so yummy. So this morning, I swung there for breakfast to try their fruit and yogurt parfait. Very good, with real fruit and crumbled granola. Only 130 calories and $1.06 total. For lunch, I went back (to a different McD’s to avoid embarrassment) and had their Fiesta Salad (sans sour cream) for lunch. VERY good, and only 350 calories. Who woulda thunk I could eat healthfully at McDonald’s?
Tonight was the Courier-Post’s annual Best of South Jersey party. Each year the readers vote for the best “whatever” in different categories (Hair salon, hoagies, DJs, etc) and the winners show their wares at the party. Naturally, I was all over the food. I also got my hair braided in a ‘heart’ braid. I was told I look like a St. Pauli Girl. 😉
From 8-9pm was dancing. The live band was Don’t Call me Francis (warning, noisy website) and WOW they were fantastic. I danced my feet into bloody stumps.
And THEN they played “Hey Ya.” And your hostess here shook it like a Polaroid picture. I’ll be feeling it tomorrow.
Speaking of, tomorrow Mom, John and I are going to see the Phillies play at Citizen Bank Park tomorrow night. My first time in the new stadium! (Thor works at 11pm…he’ll be sleeping…I don’t purposefully leave him out of my plans.) I’ll be sure to bring my camera.
OK. To bed with me.
