Poker face

Friday afternoon Chris and I headed to Quincy for an evening with Julia (aka - hostess with the mostess) and Bob and their friend J.P. Julia put some pretty flowers next to the guest bed just for us!
She made a delicious dinner of chicken and pasta and fresh-from-the-oven challah bread. Everything was great!
After dinner, the five of us played some Texas Hold 'Em. Even though I haven't played since Chris' birthday party in Yuma in 2005, I managed to do pretty well, and Bob and I were the last two playing.
Here, Chris is, of course, telling me what I should have done differently ... even though he was already out of the game, and I had won the hand. But are you surprised, really?
Bob won in the end, but we all had a really good time. In the morning, Julia made some yummy French toast with the leftover challah bread (Holla!). Now you might be wondering how all this works into my Lose 10 by 30 plan, and, uh, it doesn't. But the calories don't count when you're out of town, I decided. It was nice to spend some time relaxing and visiting, and looking through all of the fun magazines Julia left for us in the guest room! Hopefully we can host them here in Reno sometime soon!

Sounds like a good time-I can't remember the last time I played poker-probably when I was ten.

We were so excited to have you both come over! Come again right away!!
