Appreciation, Birthday, and #AmWatching

A sincere thank you to everyone who shared on their social media or by other means about Sarah being free yesterday! I reached numbers 5, 5, and 3 in my categories. To show my appreciation, I’d like to offer all of you a virtual slice of my favorite dessert – Cheesecake Factory Reese’s Peanut Butter Chocolate Cake Cheesecake. I’m drooling just looking at it. Enjoy!

Son #1 had a birthday last week, and I was thrilled to be able to spend it with him. He loves to compete in Spartan Races (obstacle courses, muddy trenches, spear throwing – here’s a LINK for more info) and had one in Charlotte over the weekend. With family in both Charlotte and Clemson, the two of us made a long weekend out of it and celebrated with them. As I’m writing this, I’m hoping our flights are on time later today.

While visiting family, we also went to see The Lost City starring Sandra Bullock (who apparently never ages) and Channing Tatum (always so good with comedy). It’s a fun blend of Romancing the Stone and Indiana Jones and a pleasurable way to spend a couple of hours. Daniel Radcliffe as a villain was a hoot and, although it was a small part, Brad Pitt nearly stole the show. I always preferred him with those long blond locks, lol.

Have a great week!

  1. Congratulations on the rankings for Sarah. That’s awesome!
    Also sounds like you had a fantastic weekend. Those Spartan Races really look intriguing, and I really want to get around to seeing The Lost City. Looks like a lot of fun. 🙂

  2. Congratulations! That is worthy of celebration, and that fabulous-looking cake certainly fits the occasion.

    I’m glad you got to be with your sons this weekend and hope your flight is (was) on time and hassle-free. I hadn’t even heard of The Lost City, but now I’m going to put it on my list. Thanks for the recommendation, Teri.

    1. You know how it is with birthdays when they get older, Staci. Usually a phone call, so this was a treat. I’ll be close to a Cheesecake Factory later in the month and have solid plans to get a real slice, lol.

  3. Congrats, Sarah! The cheesecake looks scrumptious!! I went to see The Lost City over the weekend as well and found it to be entertaining and good for a few chuckles. I agree about Brad Pitt stealing the show!

    1. Thanks, Wendy! We’re planning to be around a Cheesecake Factory at the end of the month and I’m hoping to grab a slice. It’s probably a good thing there isn’t one within two hours of me, lol.
