TGIF and Go-Karts!

Last night we took Paprika out for a fun Friday night- we went to TGIFriday's-(thanks Grandma and Grandpa for the gift certificate)! I had grilled shrimp and broccoli, and actually managed to stay on my "healthy eating plan" - not a diet. ;-) I was very good about gaining enough weight this last pregnancy to have high birth weight twins- I gained 35 pounds in five months, and am now beginning the slow process of letting go of that weight gain. One day at a time!

Paprika was great at dinner- she really was a perfect little dinner companion, and we had a very low stress meal out on the town with her. Afterwards, we took her to "see cars"- which means going to the Go-Kart track, one of her favorite places to go. The only real problem was that before we left the house, Paprika insisted on wearing a pair of shoes that is 1 1/2 sizes too small for her.

She is very particular about only wearing "pretty shoes"- and apparently the only shoes that are pretty enough are her pink sandals from last spring. I knew I should have packed them in a box months ago! Anyway, she was really suffering for her style last night- her toes were boxing up against the ends of her shoes, and even though I brought other (bigger) shoes for her, she wanted nothing to do with them because they weren't "pretty pink shoes!" Apparently blue shoes with dots are SO out this season! ;-)
