Uneventful days

It has been a pretty uneventful last few days which is why I took a blog break.

This past weekend on Saturday we took a trip across the border to return some Christmas gifts to Target. Of course while down there I had to do some grocery shopping. My Sister and I always make plans to make plans to go shopping down south in WA but to date that hasn't happened. Aiming for Sunday, we'll see. It's just crazy, with a 4 year old we go through a lot of Goldfish crackers, I was able to buy the same size bag as up here in a multitude of flavours for $1.33, the same bag where I shop here at home is $3.79. Not all items are less expensive but I would venture to guess that approximately 75% are, and now since the border isn't as strict regarding how much can be brought back (I brought beer back last month that I declared and had no issues, a couple years ago I would have been sent in to pay duty) the worry of duty seems to be a thing of the past. Of course now that I have typed that I am going to be hit every time I go across :)

After shopping we went to Jack 'n the Box, my family's favorite, we don't have one up here so very rarely is a trip made south without at least one Sourdough Jack!
(I know this doesn't go with my post about being healthier, oops, lol)

Sunday we had a double birthday celebration for my niece and brother-in-law. We had dinner at a restaurant that we (Rory and I) hadn't been to before. We had to get there at 4 p.m. when they opened or we would have to wait in a line outside the restaurant. It is apparently this busy everyday. The portion sizes were out of control (each dish enough for 3 people) and I think this is the reason they are so busy. The food was good but definitely not something I would line up outside in the pouring rain for 1 to 1 1/2 hours for.

Other than that it was pretty quiet which was nice.

I am off to a hockey game tomorrow, Vancouver vs. St. Louis, this is the last game they will play at home for over a month as there ice will be taken over by the Olympics so hopefully it's a good send off for the boys.
