For the first time in – who the heck knows – how long, last night Jay and I actually enjoyed a real dinner…at the dinner table. I know, right? Who woulda thought? (99.9% of our meals are eaten at the coffee table these days).
I was so excited, I even lit a candle for the occasion.
As a bonus, Lucas stayed asleep for his evening nap the entire time, so we happily enjoyed our meal as a twosome. And not only was the company and atmosphere fantastic, but the meal was absolutely incredible! On the menu?
Well, we each made sure to enjoy one of our festive beers while getting dinner ready, which included Buffalo Chicken Sandwiches, corn on the cob, and a cucumber & red onion side “salad” (one of Jay’s favorites). Seriously. Love these sandwiches.
I had actually had grand plans to make it to the grocery store yesterday and have dinner all made for when Jay got home from work, buuuuut that didn’t happen. Lucas was having trouble napping during the day (he just was not wanting to go down for them, and when he did, he’d wake up after 30-40 minutes…?) and I just never got a chance to make it out.
When I texted Jay to tell him this, he took care of stopping by the store on his way home, picking up what we needed, and made the sandwiches himself. How did I get so lucky?
This morning, I’m feeling gooood (minus the headache I have goin’ on). Lucas gave me a really good night’s sleep (a six hour stretch, followed by another 3), my upper body is sore in that “oh-so-awesome-sorta-way” from yesterday’s workout (I’ve missed that!), and I just finished up a yummy, simple breakfast.
Quaker Oatmeal Squares with sliced banana and unsweetened vanilla almond milk, along with a nice, hot mug of coffee. Mmmmm.
