Mazen and I took a trip up to Towson to visit my grandmother for a few days. Mom and Larbs met us there, so it was a fun four-generational reunion!
On Thursday we went over for cocktail hour and sipped wine in Downton Abbey glasses while discussing Edith and Mary’s latest decisions.
Mazen LOVES Gram’s dollhouse and the new Peppa Pig figurines my mom got for him : )
We went down to the dining room for dinner. I had a salad to start…Greek style with lots of pickled veggies, olives and a Greek dressing.
Followed by an enchilada, fried chicken, sides and bread. Loved that stuffed tomato!
And for dessert…you don’t want to know!!
Friday morning we ventured out in nearly 0 degree weather to get coffee and oatmeal from Starbucks.
We visited with Gram all morning. She passed on a few of her drawing skills to M!
For lunch we picked up some prepared salads and salmon at Fresh Market and served them over greens.
While Mazen and Mom had quiet time in the hotel, Larbs and I went shopping at The Best Mall Ever. I found a nice pair of black boots on sale and loved browsing Pottery Barn and Crate + Barrel.
Dinner our second night was more salad bar – walnuts, blue cheese, spiced apples and olives.
And the buffet of the night featured pork with a rum sauce, fried flounder, mashed potatoes and zucchini.
With a huge snow storm on the way, we actually drove home after dinner and were so thankful to sleep in our own beds. The drive wasn’t that great so late at night, but it was much preferred to driving in the blizzard that arrived the next morning.
Snow adventures and a visit from Grammie tomorrow!
