Our 30th Wedding Anniversary in Branson!

Hey neighbors!

We made it!  And today is actually our anniversary!  I just have to tell you a little about our trip.  We left at 5:30 Saturday morning.  We did a quick Hardees drive thru for breakfast and continued on our way.  Now, I want you to know that I LOVE to stop at yard sales and often can't.  So, on the way to Branson, my husband and I stopped at some yard sales.  Not alot, but we managed to fit a few in!  And yes, we did buy a couple of thing!




We had lunch in Springfield at Longhorn.  I will be doing a separate post on this, but I will let you know, they are one of my favorite restaurants.  Our server was great!  I also gave my husband a special gift there, but, that is another post.  Are you getting curious yet?  You will have to stop in again!

We arrived at the hotel around 5:00 pm.  After checking in, we decided to relax a little bit and we had our leftovers from lunch for dinner.  Still the best!

Sunday we decided to attend a church nearby and we were able to hear Tim Lee a Vietnam Vet give his testimony.  Very interesting.  And much to my son's dismay (he wasn't here), the church was cleaning out their library to make room for new books, so they had a book sale.  We purchased 5 boxes of very good books for .25 each or 10 for $1.  Not a bad deal!

Lunch again was Longhorn in Springfield.  As I stated above you will find out more in a separate post. After lunch we visited some Antique Malls.  I love to wander through these, looking for unique items and realizing that toys that I once played with are now considered antiques!  We had a great time and returned to the hotel to relax the rest of the evening, after a quick stop at Coldstone.

Monday morning we went Branson Cafe for breakfast and then on to Butterfly Palace, yet again you will read more in another post.  We visited Charley's Grilled Subs for lunch.  Ohhh this was good.  A Philly Cheesesteak!  We wandered the old downtown stores a bit and then went back to the room for a break before dinner at Dixie Stampede!

Now it is Tuesday.  Today we had a quick breakfast and then drove to Silver Dollar City.  Any of my neighbors been there?  You need to visit sometime.  For lunch we went to Cracker Barrel.  That pretty much brings everyone up to date.  Now, be sure and keep an eye out for these other posts. They will be going up soon!

Polar FA20 Activity Watch Review and Giveaway

Hi Neighbors, Well, I am out of the hospital, but I am not allowed to be very active yet, so I asked my daughter to test out this new item. It is an Activity Watch. What a great item for Get Out Get Active! The Polar FA20 counts your daily physical activity. First you need to set the basic information. The date, units (metric or imperial), your weight, height, birth date, and male or female. Place the FA20 on your wrist to measure your physical activity 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This watch monitors your activity and gives you feedback about how you are doing. Everyone should be physically active at least 30 minutes each day, and the FA20 helps you achieve this. Throughout your day you can check and see if you are having a Lazy Day (active less than 30 minutes), Easy Day (active 30 to 60 minutes), Active Day (active 60 to 75 minutes) or an Intensive Day (active more than 75 minutes). You can also record your training sessions to learn more about how your body respon
