We made it home last night around 8 pm! It’s so great to be back. Today involves reorganizing our life aka laundry, grocery shopping, catching up on blogs I’ve neglected, napping, and watching the Bachelor… you know, the essentials. Amazingly enough, I unpacked the suitcases right away last night when we got here. Normally I stare at them for at least 3 weeks before touching them again hoping they will unpack themselves.
I know most people don’t like long drives but I honestly enjoy them! Joe and I have some of our best conversations on long car rides.
They’re even better when the little one learns to kiss mommy’s hand. When it came time for dinner Joe and I were both STARVING so I made our joint decision that we would eat at Freebirds again.
They have the most amazing pulled pork I have ever had so I had it in a salad larger than my child. I also demanded the worker put 30 seconds worth of habenero sauce on it because I like when stuff is so spicy it burns your face off. That doesn’t make me weird. Oh and with a side of extra hot sauce for added heat. You may also spot a giant jalepeno in there and no, it’s not a mirage.
Joe and Noah also opted for pulled pork in a monster burrito.
Last week when we were there I bought myself the most amazing brownie at the checkout and didn’t mention it to Joe (you think I’d share? Ha. Touch it and die.) He went back through the line to get a second burrito and surprised me with another brownie! Is it bad that I easily consumed both of these without the slightest stomach ache?
Both of the guys we were with got one too and I’m embarrassed to tell you how much joy I felt when I saw one was left in Joe’s truck on our way home today. Who leaves their dessert behind? Mind blowing.
They say “pot brownies” but I’m pretty sure it’s because they’re made in a pot and they don’t actually have drugs in them. I do feel a little funny after eating them but it might be because they have 432 grams of sugar per brownie. Multiply that by two and you get high.
I originally took this picture because:
1. I can’t believe my baby is eating burritos.
2. He got really messy and it was super cute.
I almost didn’t post it because I am genuinely embarrassed he is wearing the Santa’s Helper jammies, again. Again, please don’t judge. We’re still telling him Santa needs year round helpers. Instead, please send me some spring/summer jammies I can make him wear through the fall until it is Christmas and we pull these bad boys out again and I cut holes in the bottom so his feet fit. I may or may not be the cheapest person ever. I’m glad I don’t have to tell you that he wore these all day because we woke up really early to catch a plane and it’s not worth it to wrestle with a screaming baby at 5 am. That would just be even more embarrassing.
1. Do you like long drives?
2. How spicy do you like your food?
3. What do you do when someone tries to make you share your dessert?
