Nothin’ like a Southern family dinner on a Sundy afternoon!
You really never know what you’re going to find in my parents’ house, so you can imagine my surprise when I found my mom’s rubber snake collection (which she uses in book talks) in my bedroom closet. It was quite the scare! I can hardly stand to look at them!
I did my Expecting More prenatal fitness DVD this morning because the weather was too gross to go outside. This time I did the Cardio Dance segment – loved it! I’m very impressed by this DVD, its pace, its variety and the fact that I actually get out of breath.
Then I took a shower and bathed in Noxzema!! I love the stuff, but I don’t buy it because I figured Skin Deep wouldn’t like the ingredient list but then I found my favorite “natural” cleanser, Alba Sea Minerals, doesn’t rank much higher. Puzzled. I love using Noxzema when I visit though. My mom and grandparents have been using it for years and years though. [We have a family connection to the company, actually]
Larbs + Matt came over for lunch today. Mom made a feast including homemade mac and cheese, green salad, waldorf salad, baked sweet potatoes (Matt’s contribution) and cake!
Cocktail hour applies to special lunches:
I’m having trouble with my Eye-Fi card again (which was just replaced this year!) and the photos of the mac and cheese and salad did not come out!! The card must have consumed them. Bummer.
It was really, really good mac and cheese!
For dessert, we all enjoyed Easter cake that my mom had frozen. It was brought by Matt A’s parents for Easter and they were all nice enough to save us some for this visit!
Served with strawberries
Matt and I are relaxing a bit more before we hit the road back to Cville this afternoon. It’s hard to let go of this vacation so easily!
