Signs of Spring

It is 70 degrees outside right now, and I’m loving it. I’m wearing my super cute peep toes instead of my boots, and that’s enough to make me feel happy. I love this kind of weather, and I hope it sticks.

Joe and I had a nice weekend. We spent Saturday with my family and saw my grandfather. He still looks rough, but he’s doing better. He can’t kick the pneumonia and he may not ever be able too, but he’s down to using just a small amount of oxygen and it looks like he may be transferred to rehab soon.

It was also fun to see my brother, who finally arrived home from Taiwan after three days of traveling. It was fun hearing about his trips. That night, we went and saw “Taken” with my family. I really liked it, even though I wasn’t a fan of Maggie Grace’s acting.

Yesterday, I had to work, and afterward we dropped off our cars to get the oil changed. Since we had a few hours to wait, we walked next door to Ruby Tuesday for lunch. I’d been wanting to try that restaurant again since I had heard they had remodeled both their decor and menus, and boy was I impressed. It was *much* nicer than it used to be, and the menu was great. I *loved* the all-you-can-eat salad bar and, even though their veggie burger in the past was terrible, I took a chance and tried their veggie minis (two mini veggie burgers). I’m sure glad I did. They were fantastic. Plus, between the salad, broccoli and splitting an order of chips and guacamole, I was stuffed. I could barely eat one of my minis. We’re definitely going back after we’re done with the IVF. It was incredibly healthy and super filling. Plus, I am totally craving their awesome salad bar now. Yum!

Now, it’s back to the grind. We’re leaving work a little early on Friday to head to South Carolina to visit Joe’s grandmother. I found a really pretty dress at Ross yesterday that I picked up for it. I love that store. I’ve gotten several nice dresses there at super low prices.

On a different note, Joe has decided not to do the ING Marathon in Atlanta at the end of March. Instead, he’s going to run the Scenic City Trail Marathon in May. The timing is better, since we’ll be done with the IVF and we’ll know if we’re pregnant. Plus, Joe ran the trail half marathon last year and loved it. I think it’ll be a good race.

    I really liked Taken as well… Jeremy told me it was first shot in French and then English… so maybe it lost something in translation lol…

    So funny about Ruby Tuesdays because I used to LOVE that place and now that they have changed and look all modern not so much of a fan anymore. Salad bar still rocks!
