I truly do miss this blog and all my milspouse bloggy friends! Coming back soon with regular posts, but for now here are a few pictures my sister-in-law's baby shower today:
I love having a reason to get pretty - especially when hubby is in a wonderful mood and takes ALL the boys shopping all day, giving me time to curl my hair, put on makeup, and even paint my fingernails.
It was a 'Ladies Tea Party' complete with HATS! I used it as an excuse to get another wearing out of my new dress (from the Marine Corps Ball) before I shrink out of it. It's already loose on me compared to a couple weeks ago!
The Scarlet Tea Room is beautiful, but WAY out of my own price range. I looked up their menu online ahead of time to see if there was anything 'healthy' for me to eat, and noticed that their five course afternoon tea service is normally $32 per person! Wow. Everything was absolutely BEAUTIFUL, though.
I enjoyed the green tea so much, I had FOUR cups of it. I've been drinking nothing but water for the past few months with this weight-loss challenge, so I was worried about calories. Now I'm laughing at myself for worrying: I looked up the nutrition info on unsweetened green tea, it has all of TWO calories per 8 oz cup of tea!
I stayed away from these beautiful home-made scones......I know for a FACT they are way too high in calories AND fat for this girl.
I also skipped eating this adorable cookie:
(brought it home for hubby instead)
I tried to sip some champagne, but since I have not had ANY alcohol in three months, the first sip literally went right to my head. Second sip was my LAST sip.
I had so much fun being GIRLY today, but I still love coming home to all my BOYS. Life is beautiful!
