A mini-vacation

This weekend we drove to Dallas for a much needed break.  We stayed with our good friends at their new house and partied until the wee hours of the morning from Friday to Sunday.  I'm still trying to catch up on the sleep I missed.  While we were there I realized several things. 

#1 - If I don't eat 3 meals a day with a couple of snacks, then I go into "eat everything on sight" mode.  Our friends had limited food in their pantry.  They don't snack often and I swear they hardly ever eat (we were lucky to get 2 meals a day).  Their lives aren't revolved around food or when the next meal would be. 

#2 - Freeze dried organic pineapple is really good!  Freeze dried organic apples are not so good!

#3 - I finally found a wine that I like (only one or two glasses).  The fact that it's cheap is only a bonus! 

#4 - I would rather sit at the house and play board games/card games than go to a bar.  I feel uncomfortable and out of place.  I never have fun and I'm constantly concerned about what others might think about me.  I hide in a corner and shy away from everyone.

#5 - I love getting away for a couple of days, but I can never come home fast enough.  I missed the kiddos and getting on my computer whenever I feel like it.

Sounds like you had a good time! :)

I too had a tiring weekend, but instead of being kidless I was kidful since it was my youngest's birthday party on Sunday.

Hubby and I are looking forward to a mini getaway to our province's capital, Edmonton, in a few weeks. My mom is going to watch the boys while we're gone.

I can hardly wait!! :)

Too cute pics! I feel that way whenever I stay at my parents-they hardly have any food-everything requires lots of cooking with simple ingredients which ain't my cup o tea. ;-) Glad you had fun!

It is so hard when you are at someone else's home and don't have control over what you are eating or when. I am the same way - I have to have my 3 meals and my snacks!

You like cheap wine too? I love Wild Vines Raspberry Zinfadel... it's like $7!

I'm with you on the meals and snacks-- I make bad choices when I don't or can't plan ahead! The pictures are cute! Sounds like you had fun!

I'm a 2 meal and snacker person, I never seem to be able to get 3 meals a day in : / but it works for me! and I agree with getting home,I miss the kiddies...and my bed : )

You know it is so funny that I feel the same way about vacations as you do in #1. My life is so focused on eating the right things at the right time, and when I go on vacation or over anyone's house or something I am just dumbfounded by how effortless food is for them. And then come home weighing 5lbs more... ugh. I don't see why it has to be this hard.
