Have you ever seen this show? I LOVE IT!!! I am going to try as many places that he goes to as I possible can. What fun!!!
Today my friend Stacey and I tried out a Jamaican place in Arlington TX that was on his show. We went all authentic...starting with a jamaican lemonade, then having jerk chicken, jerk pork, ox tail and rice and veggies. Yes, I said ox tail. It was pretty good too...once you got past the fact that it was an ox tail....lol. Stacey touched it and felt the tail bone and freaked out...then I dropped it and couldn't get it back up off the table...lol. We had fun.
The Jerk chicken and pork were really good! Oh and the lemonade was delicious! It's made with limes, brown sugar and water...and is really tasty! Then we had rum cake for dessert...YUM!!!
Here is the episode of the show...and a few pictures of what we ate:-I can't wait for our next Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives adventure:-)

FRS is a new kind of supplement for health and energy. Typical energy supplements and energy drinks rely on high doses of caffeine, Guarana, Taurine, and sugar to boost energy, and may add vitamins for health. FRS is different. At the core of the patented FRS formula is an antioxidant called Quercetin. Not only does Quercetin support the immune system like other antioxidants, but it’s clinically proven to boost energy. When taken regularly people report increased and sustained energy without the jitteriness of caffeine or other stimulants. Quercetin energy feels different than stimulant energy because Quercetin energy works in a completely different way.

Wow! I can't believe Brenden went to Camp La Junta this year. I am so glad we decided to send him. It takes away from the time Joel has him in the summer...but it's worth it! He had a BLAST and wants to go back next year. Thomas has been going to this camp for 8 years and LOVES it! We knew Brenden would too!! What great memories Brenden will have for years to come from summer camp:-) It's priceless really. I wish I could have gone to summer camp when I was a kid!!!
Here are some pictures of before camp...during camp...and when we went to pick him up!!
Brenden's camp was for 2 weeks this year...and Thomas's camp is for 4 weeks. So when we went to get Brenden yesterday I got to see Thomas! Too cool! I have NEVER seen him during the 4 weeks at camp. It was AWESOME to see him!!!
On a good note...I have been really good at drinking lots of water every day....getting plenty of sleep...and snacking healthy/watching portion control...on all days except yesterday...I guess we can make yesterday my free day for the week.
I will keep on truckin' and hope that my posts become more positive soon!! I can do this!
