The key to a wonderful road trip?
Such little additions made the four-hour trek to my momâ€™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 momâ€™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, weâ€™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 havenâ€™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. Iâ€™ll have to ask Mom to share the recipe because the soup really was divine. Who wouldâ€™ve thought cabbage could be so good?!
Goodnight, my friends!
