The key to a wonderful road trip?
Such little additions made the four-hour trek to my mom’s house so much easier. She lives in Tennessee, so I had to go over the snowy mountains and through the woods.
Since there are nearly no rest stops on the way, I grabbed a hummus, basil, cucumber, sprouts, and tomato wrap on the way out of Charlotte and munched on it during the drive.
I took the pups to mom’s house because she is dog-sitting for us while we go on vacation (AHHH!) next week. So kind of her because I am too paranoid to leave the pups with anyone else, really. And Maggie would rather die than be left at a kennel (trust me, we’ve tried it!).
PB and jelly toasty before we went out for the evening:
Ma and I did a lot of shopping! I really needed some cute winter tops since I haven’t bought winter clothes since I lived in Pittsburgh three years ago. Plus, now I have new things to wear on our trip. And there were so many sales going on!
Mom had cabbage vegetable soup waiting for us at home:
Plus, a ton of fruit:
The soup was so good that I went back for seconds, plus some chips. I’ll have to ask Mom to share the recipe because the soup really was divine. Who would’ve thought cabbage could be so good?!
Goodnight, my friends!
