After breakfast, it was cloudy and chilly. So, I thought it was the perfect weather for the premier of my cute black boots+scarf look.
And then off to Barnes and Noble I went for some reading. When I emerged from the books to go back home.. it was hot!! What the…? Oh, North Carolina.. when will it be cold? Good thing I am going to Sweden for Christmas.
When I was at Barnes and Noble, Hans texted me and told me that he will be leaving for his job training in Europe right after his family leaves Charlotte (in less than 2 weeks). I had to go to the bathroom because I was tearing up. I knew that this would happen, I just didn’t know when. Now, that there is a date on it.. it just seems so real. I don’t want it to be real. I don’t want to go without my husband for 3 months. It’s devastating, but life goes on and I will survive.
Lunch today was a bit plain but it doesn’t mean that it wasn’t tasty. I took inspiration from Hans’ dinner last night (yes, he has a blog but it’s in Swedish.) I made a pesto/mushroom veggie burger on whole wheat. Behold! Hans’ very favorite thing that I have come up with when it comes to cooking. Pestomayo… It’s just 1 tsp of pesto and 1 tbsp of light mayo.
I sauteed some mushrooms and spinach in some garlic for a burger topper, spread the pestomayo mixture on the bread with a Dr. Praeger’s California veggie burger and lunch was served with a side of carrots and hummus.
Hans is a burger genius. This was fantastic.
Sorry for the downer post. Hopefully I will be back to normal by tonight. xoxo
