What a week! I am utterly exhausted. My mum and little sister flew in on the 15th for a quick vacation. My mum and I have never been especially close, but it was nice to have her over. My little sister is SUPER tall now! She’s 10 and almost five foot. It’s insane.
On Wednesday, I ate a lot of pork rinds and munched on nuts. I made a chicken dish for dinner, which was quite yummy. Thursday, we stayed at home and tried to (rather unsuccessfully) beat the heat. I made spaghetti squash alfredo with cheap beef. Friday we went to Poulsbo and Silver City for dinner. I had the steak… nomnomnom. Saturday we went back to Point No Point and spent the whole day there. We had leftovers primarily for dinner.
Sunday was grilling day! I made my super awesome delicious burgers. My home-girl made an AMAZING cabbage dish thing that kicked all of the asses. So good. I almost got my sister to try some… but she’s extremely fussy, so it didn’t work. :[
Monday, we went to Scenic Beach with Pooch! Lots and lots of fun. We went out to dinner that evening with hubby at Bremerton Bar and Grill. I ate another steak, but it was delicious so I was happy. Nomnomnom!
Tuesday was our big trip to Seattle! We started the day at EMP. We played instruments, wandered the exhibits, and ventured down to the Sci-Fi Museum. My little sister loves Star Trek, and she was really excited to see the Captain’s Chair. They had a little Portal exhibit, too! It was very cute.
After EMP we went to the Space Needle for lunch. I had some salmon and spinach and salad, then a good portion of the crab/lobster salad my mum ordered. After that we went to Chihuly’s Garden and Glass museum.
That place is DOPE. MIND BLOWINGLY AWESOME. I was just awe-struck. Wow.
WOW. FUCK SHIT. DAMN.
Anywho. We went to Lush and I got some Cynthia Sylvia Stout and Retread for myself. Going to order some nice gifts for my mum and sister online, since I didn’t want to ship them via luggage. We went home later that evening and had leftover burgers and cabbage. Yummmm.
I drove them to the Airport on Wednesday and had a salad on the ferry. Ten bucks for a salad and a water! What a fucking rip off. I was too hungry to wait, though. :[
I weighed myself for the first time in weeks this morning and was very excited to see 149. Finally! I haven’t really been counting calories and logging my meals the last few days, but I intend to get right back on that. :] Vacation is over! Back to work!
