We did it!!!! We (so funny I say we and my feet did not touch the playing field- ha!) won our first game!
After weeks of hard work in practice and 4 defeats, the boys finally took home the win today!
We were all thrilled and SOOOOO happy for our boys!!!! They had been gracious in their “defeats” but they needed this win for their little spirits and being hungry as they were- THEY GOT IT! You guys should have seen them!!
Afterwards, my oldest boy said, “since we won, can we go somewhere to celebrate?” I hadn’t necessarily planned on that, “but not wanting to break momentum, I said, “sure” and after knocking out some called out request, we settled on Chic-Fil-A. There were cheers in the car!
It was packed! Who knew every kid athlete and their family went to Chic-Fil-A after games. There were jerseys and cleats everywhere but it was a fun and warm atmosphere and the staff was on the move!
I have been stalking their newer menu item, Frozen Lemonade, for quite some time and this was my chance!
It would be a bonus win for everyone! Right? I am a BIG lemon fan. I use Lemons for so many things, in my drinking water both hot and cold, on food, in dressings, on my face as a toner, etc. You say lemon and I’m in on the conversation, so as you might imagine, I was amped to try this dessert/drink. I had heard various reviews with the most compelling one being a gal saying she was addicted! What? I gotta try this! The verdict for me: It was ok, no addictions here. I can’t say I was let down simply because I really don’t have time for an addiction nor do I want to finance one- ha!. If I’m going to blow 330 calories on a treat, it needs to knock my socks off and this just didn’t do it. Lastly, one of children (who went to the play area to play) left her drink on the table and the contents began to separate. Uhmmm, I didn’t like the way that looked- haha! I mean it was nice to know that it was indeed lemonade and ice cream as that stated but I just had a problem seeing it separated in the cup. Don’t judge! HAHA! I am the first person I have heard with this type of review on this so… I will say, my eldest daughter said it was THE BOMB and had two! I was totally happy for her! If you try it let me know what you think!!
One additional note, because my youngest daughter didn’t like her frozen lemonade drink (she is a VERY picky eater), the manager of this BUSY restaurant gave us two free meal coupons, two chocolate chip cookies (which I told him he REALLY didn’t need to) and an ice cream cone! At a friends house last night we were just talking about how people no longer have a DESIRE to serve others and/or to go out of their way to make people/customers feel happy. Thanks manager Wesley, for showing that there ARE exceptions to that claim!
Have a Great Saturday Scholars!
Light and Love,
