Our Monday that Was
Recently I have shared with you Wednesday nights, Thursday evenings, Friday day, Friday night, Saturday, Sunday, so why not keep with the theme and share last Monday with you. Is it anything spectacular, no, probably not but it is what it is. That and last night I got to see Dancing with the Stars live and I’m too tired to think of anything else to blog about… so you get last Monday.
Mom woke me up at 7:30am. Yes, that’s not early, but when you haven’t slept much because you can’t get comfortable and your husband snores, you make up for it in the mornings. Abug and I thought it would be fun to go with mom to Springfield shopping so she woke up around 9 while I was fixing my hair. I put on CMT because she loves listening to music and that entertained her while I was getting ready.
Mom came and got us and we were finally off. Then it was time to go shopping. While mom was trying clothes on, Abug was entertaining herself in the mirror. (Don’t worry I was there with her, she wasn’t just left in front of the mirror ;)).
After we went shopping we went to lunch. One of my favorite places to eat is Zio’s. There are so many good places to eat in Springfield and we always migrate to Zio’s. We were being mean sending hubby pictures and messages that that is what we were having for lunch. I jokingly told my mom I should take hubby some of the Tomato Florentine soup home for dinner. Then I said I needed to get 2 so that I’d have something to eat too…. Mom took me serious and ordered Chicken Parmesan, 2 cups of soup and Tiramisu for dessert for us. Thank you mom, we love you!!
While we were eating lunch mom decided we needed dessert as well. We got this Oreo Mountain Brownie thing (holy cow!) and Bread Pudding (again, yum!)
Abug loved the Oreo Mountain brownie thing!
Then we headed home. When we got home, Abug and I were hanging out and I swore I kept hearing car doors or our garage door opening or something. Turns out we had a storm rolling through with thunder. Nothing really came of it but the sky got gray for a while.
Once hubby got home, we warmed up dinner. YUM! Hubby was surprised I didn’t have Chicken Parm for lunch but instead I had Chicken Manicotti. Abug LOVES Chicken Parmesan. She enjoyed eating the Tomato Florentine (again) and the Chicken Parmesan. I shared my portion with her and I’ll bet she ate every bit of a quarter to half of each. The kid knows good food when she sees/eats it!
Coming home the Tiramisu lost its shape, but it was still good!
I had to prove to Abug that there was no more. She still didn’t believe me. She got the last 3 bites too.
And that was our Monday. I think all we’re missing is a Tuesday now…. hmmmm we’ll have to work on that.
