Today was go,go,go. Nonstop from one thing to the next. The good news is it did take my mind off the fact that my life is about to change, but the bad news is I’m completely exhausted!! I cleared my calendar for tomorrow until dinnertime. I had a lunch and a walk scheduled and decided I need to rest.
After my meeting, I ran down to the market to get peaches and nectarines and say hi to Matt. Back at home, I had to grab a quick snack before heading out – cheese stick and crackers. This is my new favorite snack. I love these Organic Valley cheese sticks. They have a lot of flavor and are so much better than generic string cheese.
The delivery of the day was a sandwich and bread delivery to some friends who just had a baby last week. Major Cville excitement today as President Obama was in town and just blocks away! I regret not going to the event now – there were so many people downtown.
As a result, when I left the house at 4:45, the presidential caravan was literally a few blocks away, and I found myself in a gridlock of closed streets. Luckily I turned around and was able to get my vehicle back home to wait it out there. I can’t complain about these kind of street closures because the president’s safety is so important, but I found it ironic that the one time I have to drive at 5:00 – in rush hour – to get food to friends in need – I hit this kind of traffic! Luckily about 45 minutes later I was able to take the long way to the bakery and got to my friends just an hour late. And luckily I wasn’t stuck in the gridlock in labor!
Their sweet baby boy was adorable – definitely got me excited!!
Back home again, mommy needed a beer.
But since baby doesn’t like beer, we shared an Izze-esque instead : ) I love these as a mocktail and just picked up a few at Whole Foods last week.
Our dinner plans tonight involved gazpacho – made late last night with about 5% of our tomato stock! We used this recipe give or taken an ingredient or two and mixed with a can of cannellini beans.
I also hard-boiled some eggs for more protein.
Karen joined us for dinner, and the plan tonight was to go to UVA for the a cappella show on the lawn that two of our employees were in, but all three of us were totally exhausted and just couldn’t muster the energy to go back out. I just wanted to put my feet up and eat pie!
Matt bought this little beauty from Family Ties + Pies at the market. I’ve been wanting a mini pie all summer! This cute pie was smaller than my hand in size – perfect to serve 2-3.
We had slices on small plates with a scoop of vanilla on the side.
And with that – I’m headed to bed!
