My mom left yesterday! I had four glorious days of just my mom. She had never come see me before. I was always a little pit stop on the way to see others. It was awesome and we had a great time. We showed her all the sites around the city.
We also ate our very first meal on the porch while she was here.
We hung blinds on Sunday and got to finally enjoy the porch. Chicken meatballs, brown rice pasta, fingerling potatoes, baby zucchini, asparagus and garlic bread.
We also practiced our Toddlers and Tiaras poses often.
My mom is a nonpracticing license hairdresser. She went to beauty school when I was a kid. She used to practice on me.
Upon taking them out a few hours later.
Yesterday she wanted to take my outfit photo. We tried inside in front of the new curtain she made but it was too dark.
So we tried the porch. Still too dark.
Then she insisted I go across the street in front of the neighbors house. I was horrified and protested. BUT THEN SHE STARTED SINGING and wouldn't stop until I did it. It was 6:30am and she was pretending she was an Opera singer.
You can see that even after sleeping on it the curls held up wonderfully. At the end of the day even though it was 92 they were still intact.
Sweater Target (its the one with the lace in the back)
Yeah so the jig is up. As you can see I am not unique, I didn't invent my style. The bangs, arm full of bangles, large earrings and funky nails? Totally bit that style off my mom. Totally serious. I may of taught her the Sally Hansen strips but this is the lady who was wearing a gold nail when I was a kid.
Last night we had the leftovers of the fingerling potatoes with chicken tacos, refried beans, roasted corn, zucchini, onions and salad.
I love having a giant kitchen. Dave makes amazing food. He got an ice cream maker for his birthday and we had homemade ice cream too. So yummy. We used to have a bigger machine but it broke. This time we got this little one for $20 and its perfect. Now that we live neat a Trader Joes I have access to all these yummy nitrite and preservative free foods.(Nitrites make me wicked sick) so I got "healthy" (relative term) teenie weenies and threw them in the crock pot on Sunday. Oh man. Grape jelly, mustard, weenies in the crockpot on high for a few hours. That's all you do. They are so tasty. We munched on them with edamame to balance it out and watched a marathon of Toddlers and Tiaras and mom sewed curtains.
Between company and all the stuff we did last week we still haven't unpacked everything. We have only had one night off. I NEED to unpack my clothing because I have been wearing the same few things over and over.
How was your weekend?
