Howdy! Mom and I spent the morning window shopping. Well, mostly we window shopped. ;) I couldn’t help but snag these $1.95 placemats at West Elm. You know you’re a food blogger when you buy placemats in singles.
Expect to see dinner with new backdrops soon. 🙂
Mom bought me this comfy throw, which the dogs have now claimed as their own.
They are so totally in lurve.
I took Mom to Providence Cafe for lunch. We were both in the mood for a veggie-centric lunch, and I knew this would be the perfect dish for both of us to order!
It always looks too small when the waiter puts it in front of me, but the combination of goat cheese, pecans, and balsamic vinegar and olive oil leaves me feeling SO satisfied. Plus, I love arugula and asparagus.
I also love bread. Word!
After lunch, I talked mom into attending a Vinyasa Basics class at Y2Yoga. This is the perfect class for beginners because the instructor carefully explains every pose and you go really slowly. We only did two flows and they were at the end of class. Mom really loved it!
I wish she lived in Charlotte and we could do more classes together. 🙁
Throwback for you: Mommy and me, circa Christmas 1985.
Fueled up with a Green Monster (1 cup almond milk, 2 cups spinach, and 1/2 a banana):
The Husband has a special night planned. Both of my parents are in town tonight which only really happens for major life events like weddings and graduation! So we’re all going out to dinner to celebrate some recent news. I don’t know where we’re going, but it involves reservations so I’m excited. 🙂
Have a wonderful Saturday night!
Such a cute picture of you and your mom! Enjoy your time with your parents!
