WORKOUT – Ran easy miles in AZ 7.1 miles/60 mins
Go check out my interview about North Dakota!
After yesterday morning’s bike and breakfast, the afternoon was deemed “everyone’s on their own” or as I call it, “Spend time with your own dang family and leave me alone!” time.
Grandma, Grandpa and Big K went to Cabela’s to ogle over guns; Byron, Niki and the Button went to Nordstrom Rack to ogle over his and her butt-boosting jeans, and Jabe and I went to ogle over food. at Jason’s deli.
I had the salad bar and it was better than the last time I was there a couple years ago – it included roasted red pepper hummus, kalamata and green olives, artichoke hearts and flavored feta cheese. Are you kidding me?!
I had 2 plates of salad and 2 cups of the soft serve ice cream; by the time I was done, our table was buckling under the weight of all my dirty dishes and the busboy was glaring at me.
Afterwards we went shopping and saw some Christmas decorations at a pool store, yes, a pool store:
Evidently, you are a loser if you don’t decorate your pool. and really, really nice too.
Did you know that upside down Christmas trees are now the trend?? I had never even heard of this before my SIL Marlie told us yesterday they’re all the rage and her and Matti are hanging one from the ceiling. The trends pass me by faster than the Christina Aguilera pregnancy rumors fly.
While we were out, we hit up multiple golf stores.
This is what I think of multiple golf stores:
Before dinner Byron and Niki joined us at one of America’s finest dining establishments, Chili’s, for a happy hour margarita. except it wasn’t happy hour.
sure didn’t stop us.
They both liked the El Presidente margarita…
…Except Niki is a ghost (and vampire lover) so I don’t know if we can trust her opinion on tequila or not.
We were able to enjoy a pre-dinner margarita out because we had a great babysitter at home:
That’s how Alaskans do it.
Black olives are what’s for dinner.
My dad made dinner last night. Stop the presses, this is a big deal. None of us were even sure he knew there was a kitchen in the house beyond a freezer for ice cream so we were all really impressed. He made Mongolian Elk which was really good, one of my favorite meals.
