Panasonic LUMIX DMC-FH3 Digital Camera (Black)
14.1 Megapixels5x Wide Angle Optical Zoom Lens2.7" LCD
High Speed Autofocus
Optical Image Stabilization
Intelligent Scene Detection
High Sensitivity (ISO 6400)

He ended up with s Panasonic Lumix FH3. It's not bad for the price and very small.

CASSIE'S NEW GROOMER


Cassie tried a new beauty shop today.




She liked it pretty well. They only kept her two hours :)




She looked so cute. I think she'll go back. Although the top knot is a tad short.






And I got to have a very slimming lunch in beautiful downtown Wylie, yum it was good even though a little fattening.




It was a good day. :)

DINNER AT PAPPADEAUX

I ate lower carb, dear husband didn't :(










There is a pretty nice fountain and patio

It was really good. We were stuffed.

LAZY EXCITING WATCH THE STORM CHASERS DAY


Today I spent a great deal of the day following the storm chaser videos online. It was very exciting until the server got overloaded and stopped just as the chaser was about to see the tornado.
The feed stopped and the next time it came up there was this:

ALDI-WOULD YOU SHOP THERE?


This is Aldi-the really cheap grocery store.




It costs a quarter for a cart rental, but if you return the cart you get your quarter back.


There's a lot of strange brands I've never heard of.














Strange concept, but there's some things I might buy and it does seem very CHEAP!

A DAY WITH A COUSIN





We first ate at Obzeet.












She was impressed with the weird decor. Then we headed out to drive around and see what new shopping centers around had been built and what was open. 


We ended up at Watters Creek.


















The brooks and water features there are very pretty.












We relaxed a bit.








The Roses were really pretty



And we
 ate too MUCH!!!!!!!!!!

Del Frisco's Friday


Had a wonderful dinner at Del Friscos last night and a couple who are our friends joined us. 


I really really like him and enjoy his company and conversation, but sometimes he can gets very passionate with his opinions and  social consciousness, and it can become more like a debate than just conversation.  I think he secretly enjoys that it does. :)  


But there was some tension between us throughout the night since they had very nicely invited us to stop by their house for cocktails before dinner and since DH is no longer drinking and I was taking meds and couldn't I nicely declined and said we would just meet them at the restaurant.  


Apparently that was not acceptable and I inadvertently offended the male half of the couple.  I really didn't mean to do that, but obviously I did.  In fact I was informed that I might never get another invitation to his home. 


What?  Really?????????????????


Oh well "que sara sara"


But all in all we had a great completely great dinner considering I'm starting a new diet today I can't believe I've gained back half the weight I had lost on the low-carb diet so I'm starting back on a modified version of that beginning today we'll see how it goes


In the meantime, here's a look at the last supper





















Lovely dinner, but to tell the truth. I came home miserable!!!!!

Last night we were driving home from dinner and this was over the top of our house.






At least it looked like it. But, wow it was gorgeous.
