I love being at my mom’s house. I never lived here (she moved when I went to college), but it’s so cozy and pretty. This is the back of the house:
And I love the hardwood floors in the dining room. I wish we had a dining room!
I drank a glass of wine while my mom cooked dinner (she didn’t let me help much!):
We went to Robert Mondavi on our honeymoon in Napa, so I have a soft spot for his wines.
I also munched on two pretzel rods because I seriously thought my stomach was going to eat itself I was so hungry!
I had an excellent dinner. My aunt and uncle came over and it was very nice to see them, too! For dinner, my mom made:
- Her famous vegetarian whole wheat lasagna, which is filled with spinach, squash, and zucchini.
- Steamed carrots
- A fresh salad with onion, celery, tomato, and sprouts
Everything was so delicious! Especially the ginormous hunk of lasagna!
After dinner, we sat on the back patio, watched fireflies, and caught up. It was fun. :) I had a sliver of key lime pie with coconut pineapple ice cream for dessert:
This was a very moderate portion (as you can tell by this baby spoon!) because I was pretty stuffed from dinner:
I love baby silverware. And I love how my mom brings it out for me automatically. 🙂
GOODNIGHT! I can’t wait to go on an early morning run in the Tennessee countryside. See you tomorrow with a full recap.
