She was here but now she's gone...

and I'm really going to miss her!

My sister January came to Tulsa to visit me for a few days and what fun we had! We went out to eat The first night she arrived, we went to McGills. It was delicious. We shared the mushroom caps stuffed with spinach and herbs and covered in cheese. Doug and I shared the Shrimp cocktail -mmmmm. For our meals, Doug was good and had the lite plate which consists of a sirloin patty, various fresh fruits and sherbert (which I ate). January had the chicken picatta and I had the chicken marsala. Delicious, but we could hardly move we were so stuffed after we finished eating.
The other places we ate during her stay:
Oliveto (twice)(Chicken Scallopine for both of us - both times!)
Oscars - appetizers: fried green beans, quesadillas, artichoke dip and something else I can't remember right now.
Red Rock - Jan: Steak, Me: Ribs, Doug: Salmon
Louies: Burgers of course!
Custard King:

She couldn't leave town without having a custard! I think I gained 10 pounds during her stay.
We also did some shopping - scored some cute boots at Shoe Carnival during their BOGO (buy one, get one 1/2 off sale) event.

We went to the Oklahoma Aquarium on Sunday and had lots of fun. That is where the above picture is from.
Of course, Doug and I had to take our "self shot":

But, she had to get back to Connecticut for the beginning of classes, and sadly, I have to go back to work. For those of you lucky enough to have your sister's living close to you, appreciate it. It was fun having her here while it lasted!

In the meanwhile, it is four weeks until we leave for Hawaii! FOUR WEEKS! I can't wait but I am definitely on the straight and narrow. See that picture at the beginning of this post? If I left today I'd be looking like a beached whale in my bathing suit. So, for the next four weeks I am going to be good. No lunches out today ~ no dinner out either. I am marinating shrimp to throw on the grill along with some veggies. I have been working on a meal plan for the week too. Let's see if I can drop a few lbs. before our trip.

This morning I went for a 5K. I walked/jogged. Believe me, I didn't want to move but I did it and I'm happy I did. January's flight was at 6:45 this morning and since I was already up and moving I figured I might as well go. Yay me!
