Champagne punch:

3 bottles of White Zin wine
1 bottle of champagne
1 cup honey
1 can frozen concentrate orange juice

None of these bottles needs to be FANCY expensive varieties, it tastes great for the LOW price stuff. Warning, it is like PUNCH! Goes down really easy, then you try to stand up and MIGHT have issues! Not that it has ever happened to me!

I garnish it with distilled water jello ring with fruit frozen in it to keep it all cold!

Enjoy your book club tonight!

Book club cancelled . Bummed as I won't be able to attend when they have it again In 2 weeks. Such is, I'm sort of annoyed no one would respond to any of my messages asking for confirmations for attending.....oh well

What have you been reading Jenn?

Bummer about the book club, but you and the fam will enjoy dinner. I'm assuming the punch will have to wait. It sounds so good - thanks for the recipe!

Hmmm Monica, I like the sound of that punch!
We make one with sparkling white wine, orange juice and honey rum then have the same standing up issues!!!

OH Gina, I am sure you would. That sounds like an interesting punch too!

We didn't make the punch as there is nothing really to do with it or anyone to serve it to. Instead I finished up a bottle of white wine. 2 glasses was just what I needed to finish up my UD calories right inline with 1900c.

Plan for today:
cottage cheese/tomato 65c
deli ham/snap peas/laugh cow 90c
2 eggs 140c
protein shake 180c
tonight: brocc/rice soup 100c

This may need to be switched up as hunger kicks in, but this is the plan! 575c would be a GREAT DD for me!

Carol, let me know if you make the punch. Make it for a crowd. There's no way to save it once it is made. As I said, we made it for my sister's party, there were 20 people there, not everyone drinking. We have made it on New Year's Eve too! It's perfect for that too!

Hello Monica! Thank you for your sweet comment in my journal!

I see you and I have similar stats. I'm an inch shorter, but our goal weight is pretty close. I'm shooting for 158, but the lowest I've been in recent memory is 163 or so. And it's pretty good when I'm there.

I'm going to poke around in your journal and see what's what. Nice to meet you!

~Deborah

Oh no, Monica! Sorry your book club was cancelled! I used to play bunco and we had the same problem with people not responding! Frustrating!

I've been reading the James Patterson Women's Murder Club series. I also read No One You Know (which was okay), The Center of Everything (predictable), and darn it! There was something else in there too, but I can't remember what!

No problem! I made my ticker at TickerFactory, but it wouldn't work either. So I messaged Cheri (admin), who kindly put it up for me. Now I can update it any time I need to. I'm sure she'll help you out. Or Dottie could probably do the same.

We stopped playing because we didn't have enough players

I kind of miss it though. It was fun!

We had a fun weekend. Friday's DD was a little high, as Friday DD's always are for me. Saturday we did the amusement park / water park thing. I loved it. My children are old enough to go off on their own and each had a friend. DH and I found some lovely beach chairs in the shade. I swam a little, did a few water slides, then I read most of the day, in the shade with a lovely breeze! LOVED IT! OH and I people watched. There's nothing like a roller coaster/water park to bring out the INTERESTING people!

Sunday we did church and then grocery shopped, and other shopping. I found 3 shirts, 1 pair of shorts and a pair of capri's. All on sale of coarse! IT was a full day and I was tired at the end!

OH I almost forgot, we adopted another dog this weekend. I'll post a picture

Pip and our other dog Jessie.

Pip has decided to take over Jessie's crate, Jessie is none to happy about it. We are going to get Pip a crate later today. I had no idea a DOG would DESIRE being in a crate as much as Pip does! It was Free Fido Friday at the Humane Society and DH finally said we could get another dog. Pip was taken to the humane society with another dog as the owner was moving and couldn't keep them. I can't imagine ever doing that, but I know it happens. Pip is 4.7 pounds! We wanted a lap dog! DD11 loves to carry her around and such. Now if we could just get Pip to stay on our lap and out of Jessie's crate! I think she will once she gets used to us all!

Jenn, that series sounds really good. I tend to lend toward Young Adult books myself but enjoy almost anything with a good story!

The pups are adorable! I want a dog, but have to wait until we move (whenever that will be!)

I read just about anything! My mom was recently cleaning something out and found a couple of Boxcar Children books. She gave them to me to give my kids and I ended up reading them. lol

Your dogs are so cute. We recently rescued a kitty. To add to our menagerie of one dog and one cat.

Love your fur-baby pics

As you know we just have cats (5 of them at the moment) We'd both love a dog but have had to admit we're just too bone idle to walk one! Although I have started the quest of doing a 2km walk each day so maybe.... think we'd have to own a house first though, after everything with our landlord over the cats!
