Guess what song has been stuck in my head for 3 days:
TAKE ME HOME, COUNTRY ROADS
I love big cities, but they stress me out!! All the planning and walking and the fact that I’m usually traveling when I’m in them – give me fields, open skies and a front porch!
My flights went swimmingly today. Way to go American Airlines, ORD and RDU!
I opted out of in-flight internet to start a new book – American Wife– that Larbs gave to me. I’m about 50 pages in and am loving it. The author is VERY clever in her writing style and details, and to me, that’s what makes a book.
Dad picked Matt up from the airport at 1PM and they went to a few museums until my flight came in at 5:15. Then we all went out for salad bar for dinner before Matt and I hit the road for home. (Mom is already up with my grandmother in Baltimore)
I think this is the first time the Souper! Salad! salad bar has been shot with a DSLR camera
I heart salad bars so much.
I piled mine high with veggies and tidbits of this and that – some fettuccini noodles, olives, spicy peanuts, beans and GOLDFISH!!
And on the side I had a sweet potato!! I was thrilled to see they had these, but sadly, it was not the best sweet potato I’ve ever had.
My dates! I think between the two of them they made about 10 trips to the salad bar – 8 kinds of soup, 3 salads, 2 extra plates, 2 desserts. Buffets are fun
The sign made me do it!!
My GOSH this was a fabulous ice cream cone!!
I also heart places with all-you-can-eat soft serve!
Luckily, all I did eat was one 😉
Other than 3×3 hours of “are we there yets”, our car ride went well. Welcome home Bears!
I cannot WAIT to sleep in my own bed again! It’s been 12 days since I’ve been home and all I want is a little downtime with my house and husband.
