Well, today was the day that Extreme Makeover: Home Edition let the family know who was chosen. Unfortunately, my friend Joy didn't get chosen! I was disappointed for her, but I am looking forward to hearing about the family that WAS chosen! And...I didn't get asked to help. There were over 4000 volunteers, so they had to narrow it down to people who had skills such as drywalling, electrical wiring, etc.--none of which I have! Oh well!
This morning I went to Zumba with Laura and Lindy and my neighbor Candy and her daughter Kelsey. Have you ever been? It's fast moving dancing (some Latin style and some kind of hip-hop/R&B).
We danced for an hour and 10 minutes! Needless to say, it was quite a workout! Really fun, though! It made me feel a little better about sitting in a chair all afternoon at the pool reading a book! It is so hot here. Just about all you want to do is be in a pool or the air conditioning somewhere.
Tonight Mark is life guarding and my girls all went to the Maroon 5/Sara Bareilles concert so Steve and I went out to dinner. We tried a restaurant that was new to us...Miro Spanish Grill.
You can eat outside...
It was delicious. Spanish food is very different than Mexican food. I had jumbo shrimp sauteed with tomatoes, peppers, and onions over rice. Steve had marinated chicken and mushrooms and mashed potatoes. It was all really fresh and yummy!
And we finally finished the entire HBO John Adams series. (I know--we're nerds!)
But it was so good! We've been watching a little bit each night for the past week or two. If you like history at all, you should rent it. We both commented after each DVD about how good it was and how it made history come alive!
