A “Wii”ly Good Time

I had creamy grits with fat free american for breakfast with my usual coffee and stevia and skim milk. Nothing fancy, but filling.
Lunch was easy…leftover rice and beets from the night before along with a broiled turkey burger…could not have asked for something so tasty and yet so quick and  easy.A stop at the local convenience store yielded me a pumpkin (have I mentioned I love fall…and PUMPKIN anything! ) muffin and a double shot espresso coffee. Yes a whopping 7 more points here.
    Our family time brought us to a Wal-mart. I cannot say our LOCAL Wal-mart as the closest is 45 minutes away, but always a nice drive. We listen to podcasts such as This American Life or an episode of Radio Lab. We all enjoy them greatly and even like listening to “repeats” now and  again. We all definitely have a favorite or 2 or 3. :)
Hubby here is always clowning it seems when he happens to be on the receiving end of the lens.. I do love him though…make me smile…often.
Our son is just as much of a goof as his Dad! Gotta love it though as truly a smile is always to be had. As we are loading the van we are taking photos of our individual “gifts” we got tonight….
I received the new Wii Fit Plus! Played it as soon as we got home for about 40 minutes…set up my routine and love love love it!

My older 2 got Club Penguin memberships…no clue what they like about it…but they do.
I just realized the photo of my youngest and what he received is missing…hmm, well I will tell you anyway…he got a great collection of fire and police trucks that came with a police and fire station. He is in his glory! Has been playing with it every waking moment since we arrived home last night.
And again we have Hubby acting goofy…jumping up and would presume because our trip to Wal-mart id over…this one anyway! :)
          Dinner was at Subway, where I ordered a ham salad with onion dressing. i loaded all veggies…everyone…but jalapenos…and skipped the cheese. I do love Subway…for me it is just so easy to order and no guilt ensues with what I eat.
Here are some of the rest of the family enjoying their meals   

An end to a great day spent with those I love the most…just the way I want it.

I'm Wii-ping becuase I do not have a Wii. And did you have to say "creamy" grits? Couldn't just say grits, huh? ((stomach growling))
