My day has looked like this
Luckily, I am more organized now.. or as organized as I can get since I am a total scatter brain. I have to write everything down or I forget about it.
I have been looking forward to cooking my own meals for quite some time- over a week. Going out to nice restaurants and finding cute nyc cafe’s is fun and all but it’s nice to go back home and prepare your own meals, it is soothing for me. I had been dreaming of this breakfast for a few days now, apple oatmeal. Not just any apple, but fresh NC mountain apples that I picked myself.
I just have to take a minute to say how lucky I am to have such an amazing husband. After a horrible day of travel (but really, when is traveling ever not horrible?) I came to something special sitting on my kitchen counter.
It made my day..err, night. And yes, I read it over and over again like a teenage girl.
The good news is that now I have a very good reason to go visit Manchester after New Year’s.
Our fridge is completely empty so I used that as an excuse to have Vegetarian Chili from the deli. Good but not spicy enough for me so I added some hot sauce and garlic powder.
I don’t think anything is spicy enough for me. I get it from my dad. When I was in high school, he scared off some boys by making them eat some very hot peppers. They downed a whole carton of milk and a loaf of bread after that. I cried from embarrassment but now it’s hilarious.
Afternoon coffee was epic today.
Pumpkin cupcake from Magnolia Bakery in nyc. It was smashed from being in my luggage but it was melt in my mouth good. I don’t usually like icing but I may or may not have licked the plate after words- you be the judge.
I bought one for my mom too. We both adore pumpkin. I just hope it doesn’t get too dry by the time that she gets it. Along side my cupcake was some french press coffee.
Coffee+Sweets were made for each other.
Dinner was sushi- a brown rice spicy salmon avocado roll.
I bulked it up with some broccoli.
I am leaving tomorrow for Tennessee and Tulsa-bound on Thursday. I have such a long drive ahead of me. I love living Charlotte but it doesn’t feel like home without Hans here, nowhere does but I am a strong woman and I will get through this. Sooner or later it will be February 4th and we will be back in Charlotte again. Good night! xoxo
