So – remember how I ran my car into a curb last week and somehow – someway – inflicted $1800 worth on damage (thank goodness for insurance!)? Here’s the rest of the story: The dealership had to special order two rims and a computer part to repair my car; it looked like I was going to be stuck in Tennessee for over three days – with no absolutely no luggage and tons of To Do’s waiting at home.
But my mom graciously offered to swap cars with me for a week while mine was repaired, and I got to go home! Today, we met in Asheville (the halfway point) to swap cars back. Moms are the best.
Doesn’t MomHTP look FIERCE in her vintage, thrifted outfit? Rawr.
I absolutely love Asheville. Such a cute little hippie town.
We decided to grab a bite at Rosetta’s Kitchen, a little vegan restaurant with tons of unique offerings. I’ve only eaten at Rosetta’s once before and got the Tofu Pad Thai, which was great – but I wanted to try something else. I ordered the Family Platter… peanut tofu, smashed potatoes with nutritional yeast gravy, and steamed kale.
And per our tradition, Mom and I stopped at a little candy shop. She always gets fudge, but I opted for a dark chocolate-covered Rice Krispy treat on a stick… AMAZING.
Drove back to Charlotte (IN MY CAR! YAY!), ran a bunch of errands, and eventually made an easy dinner.
This is my new obsession: hummus, goat cheese, tomatoes on toast. So good. I like to add pesto, too.
A Baby Party
Tomorrow, I am throwing a baby shower for my friend Jen. I am a little nervous because I’ve never thrown a baby shower before – I hope it goes well… I just want to honor my friend and her amazing baby boy!
We’re having it at her house because my apartment is too small for 16 women + 2 babies + a bajillion gifts. I’m spending the evening prepping all the decorations. Channeling my inner crafty goddess, if you will.
The party is going to have a very fun, very Jen-ish theme – here’s a hint.
