Back From gain!

Linda and Nichole
I am back from Chicago and I had a blast.  It was so much fun going downtown on Friday.  Seeing Linda, my very good friend enjoy the atmosphere, when she had not been there since she was in grade school was priceless.  Spending girl time with my beautiful daughter Nichole was wonderful!

I made it to Lush which was my main reason for wanting to go downtown, and also stopped by MAC.  I love MAC have I told you all that.  It is the best cosmetics I have used on my face in I cannot tell you.  I have very sensitive acne prone skin, and this brand does not hurt my face in fact it makes it glow I am told.

I am happy that I did not gain anything while being gone.  This is what I ate while I was gone.  I had a bowl of Tomato Basil Bisque soup with crusted Parmesan chicken at Noodle and Co. for lunch on Friday.  I had three chicken taquitos with guacamole and sour cream for dinner on Friday night at Cheesecake Factory.  I had a Margarita at dinner.  I took a piece of Red Velvet Cheesecake back to the hotel with me and I only ate half the rest went to the trash.  Yes, really!!! LOL.  On Saturday I had four bites of scrambled eggs for breakfast.  I had a Chai Tea from Starbucks the grande size. I ate lunch around 3 and I had a backed potato with cheese, bacon and sour cream and I only ate half.  Dinner on Saturday I was craving Chick Fil A because we do not have one here.  So I had a small chicken nuggets and I ate six of them.  They were soooo good!  Sunday I had a protein bar for breakfast and a carton of skim milk about 60 minutes later.  I did not eat lunch and for dinner I had three cheese raviolis with marinara sauce and I snacked on the drive home Sunday on Sticky Fingers gourmet popcorn.  I also had three bites of a Cinnabon sweet roll.  So all in all it was not horrible but I did eat stuff I normally would not.  I DID NOT GAIN anything while I was gone.  I am very glad about that, I seemed to have just maintained.  

We walked a freaking ton, so I thought I would have lost something, but oh well, I am back in the gym this week.  So will get back in the game.

My very good friend is having her baby this morning by C-Section.  I am so excited for them.  This is their second, and they lost a baby last year.  So Brynn is highly anticipated.  Danielle is like my daughter.  I have worked with her for 5 years.  She calls me her work mom.  I am heading up to the hospital later to meet this little bundle of joy.  I cannot wait.

Cole and Adam
I am glad that I am off today, as I am a bit tired.  It was great seeing the boys, we had a movie night last night and just cuddled.  So wonderful I have to admit.

Oooh, what brand of makeup do you use? I have the same type of skin. Is it Mac brand? I've never been to a Mac store.
