Tuesday nights escape to the lakeside was well worth it. I didn't expect the fact that it would be so much cooler there - I mean everyone knows that there is a breeze from the lake, but I dare say I was a bit chilly!
We ate a yummy picnic with shrimp cocktail, turkey burgers, pierogi, and salad fresh from the garden. We walked the pier and then took a beach walk.
Unfortunately, the clouds did not allow for a visible sunset, so we took off about 8:30. Brian then pleaded to get some delicious Captain Sundae for dessert - but I refused since we have a freezer full of icecream treats. Boy was it hard to refuse, but I did! For those of you lucky enough to know Captain Sundae (including George W.), you'll understand how much willpower I must have.
And for my SYTYCD Talkback:
I was right there on that hot tamale train with Mary - ChooChoo! Go Sabra and Dominic! You were my favorite dance and rewind-the-Tivo-worthy. That rhumba was steaming up my t.v. screen.
Maybe Jessie's chest pain occurred from her circulation getting cut off by that ridiculous cat head band - what was that?! Pasha held his own and sure did an excellent job lusting over the Bette Midler look-alike. I hope he gets to stay and wiggle his hips for another week.
Jaime and Hok deserve an honorable mention for their bird-flower interpretation - or maybe the mention should really go to the choreographer, Wade Robson. Although they danced awesomely, Jaime kind of has a space cadet thing going for her that I can't quite look past.
My bottom three prediction: Shauna/Cedric, Neil/Lauren, Jesus/Sara. But I've been wrong before.
Well - I'll be gone for awhile. I'm off to the east side to stand in my friend Meredith's wedding. I'm looking forward to it - Meredith and Adam are such a likeable couple with a strong relationship. After that, I'll spend a little time at the 'rents relaxin' and introducing my dad to beanbag toss. I hope you all have a great weekend!
