Thank you guys so much for all the sweet comments earlier!! Yall are the best
No yoga happened this afternoon. I was a total bum and just sat on the couch with Ryan all afternoon long. It was so relaxing and lovely since we haven’t been able to spend a whole afternoon together in awhile since I started my job. I had a couple bites of d’lite at some point—
We headed over to my parents house around 5:30 for the “party”. I was greeted with a delicious homemade lemon drop martini (wooheeeeee these things are good and STRONG!) and some cheese and crackers (I only had one though—wasn’t that hungry yet):
We had a delicious meal of apricot and olive beef over jasmine rice (strange combo but works really really really well!) as well as Margaret’s homemade caesar salad. Her sister in law grew the tomatoes in her back yard!
And then for dessert we had ice cream sundaes!!!!!!!!!!!
My mom and aunt went and picked up a big tub of coconut d’lite earlier and then she layered it with caramel sauce, chocolate sauce and toasted almonds. It.was.amazing. And sorta healthy?! I ended up licking the caramel out of everyone’s glass bottoms:
And I got presents!
A collection of specialty spices from a small shop in Wisconsin—
HOMEMADE vanilla extract made by a friend of Margaret’s. It took a YEAR to make the extract! How crazy is that?!
As well as an awesome new cookbook, picture frame and biscotti cookies. Yay! Here’s the whole group toasting at dinner—
So throughout the evening I had my lemon drop, half of Ryan’s lemon drop and a glass of wine. Yep—I’m through. Night night time Jenna. It’s been a great day though and tomorrow I’m getting up and hitting a 9:00 Bikram class to sweat it all out. Love it.
Its night night time over here. See you guys in the morning!
