The Coeur D'Alene and floating green

I thought I'd throw up some beautiful pictures of the golf course at The Coeur D'Alene. My son was up visiting his grandparents and grandpa took him golfing on this amazing course. This first pic is from their lake house across the bay from the resort. My son will inherit this house...lucky dog!

Here's Andrew teeing off at the floating green...and yes he made it!

Wow! What a view...

I think they call this "on the beach!"

My "New" Haircut...

Well after years of long flat hair and a bad perm, I've decided to finally cut it all off.  WOW!!! What a relief.  Feels like I lifted 50 lbs. off my shoulders.  Getting ready in the morning...piece of cake!

New Friends from Tennessee

I've been following blogs and forums for a couple years now and I'm finally starting to put faces with names. Our new friends are Chet & Janet from Tennessee and what a pleasure to meet them. We've been over to their pad a couple times in the TC to hang out, chit chat and do dinner. They must like us, they were kind enough to take us for a wonderful steak dinner at Rawhide and do some window shopping. Then as if that wasn't enough...they kept us up until 2 am. Almost made me feel like I was sneaking in the house when I got home, lol. Thanks again, we really did appreciate your kindness. Here's my Tennessee friends...

Here are the rigs hanging out enjoying the perfect weather...while the group discusses all the TC stuff. You're looking at a Bigfoot (ours) Snowriver (Paul & Terry) Lance (Chet & Janet) & two chevy's and a ford.

Sitting around with Chet & Janet and Paul & Terry. These are the only decent pics I have...either the battery was going dead or Steve just doesn't take good pics.

New Years Resolution...Are you kidding???

So for the last two weeks I've been hitting the gym, running the treadmill and lifting weights. I'm finally starting to feel like it's paying off...Woo Hoo! I haven't necessarily lost weight but I'm feeling better each time I go, so it's just a matter of time. I've also been watching my food intake. I'm not doing the "Body For Life" Challenge but I'm trying to follow the plan as close as possible. Well today I made my first recipe from the Eating For Life Book and was it ever so fabulous! Those are big words from me, lol. I'm one of the pickiest, plane jane eaters on the planet. My nickname is Ms. Vanilla! So I thought I'd share, you really should try 287.

By the way, I substituted canned chicken for the tuna...(I don't eat fish). Can you believe this is one portion. I was stuffed!

1 can (6 oz.) Chicken or Tuna
1/4 C frozen peas (thawed)
1 slice of onion, chopped (I used red)
1 red pepper, diced (I used orange)
2 portions rotini (about 4 oz. or 1/2 Cup uncooked)(one portion is 2 oz. or 1/4 Cup)
1/4 C low-fat Zesty Italian Dressing

Cook noodles 9 min. mix everything together, chill if you like it cold.
Servings: 2
