Last night after work I headed to my parent’s house. My mom was busy cooking an amazing meal and we were also excited to see the new pup Bailey.
My mom really outdid herself and we had an Italian feast. We started off our meal with some fresh tomato, basil and mozzerella. Nothing reminds me of spring/summer more than this. So fresh, light, and delicious. We also had some crusty artisan bread to dip in a garlic olive oil and herb mix. She made both chicken and eggplant parmesan. I decided on the eggplant parm and enjoyed every last bite.
The meal ended perfectly with a strawberry shortcake. Nothing’s better than mom’s cooking.
When we walked in the house we couldn’t believe how small Bailey was. She is a lab/border collie mix and was teeny tiny. Eden wasn’t sure what to make of her at first. This was her first time being around a puppy and she ended up playing a little too rough in the beginning. By the end of the visit she had learned to be gentler but she’ll still need some practice. She took a liking to her by the end.
You can really see how tiny she is compared to Eden.
We ended up taking all 3 dogs for a walk and little miss Bailey really kept up. When she got back she was wiped out and was in need for a nap.
I loved reading about all of your favorite kitchen appliances / gadgets in the giveaway post 🙂 So many of you said you loved your immersion blender, and I have been wanting one for a while now! My mom ended up surprising me with one last night! I am so excited to put it to good use. It also has a mixer attachment which I really needed. Exciting new appliance! Thanks mom 🙂
Happy Thursday! So excited for the weekend to get here. The Cherry Blossom 10 miler is this Sunday and I get to run it with 4 of my best friends and also miss Sabrina from Rhodeygirl Tests! Miss Anne P will also be there, being speedy. The forecast looks great so far and I’m ready to check this off my list of things I wanted to accomplish.
