Yesterday was our 27th anniversary! We went out to lunch at a new Vietnamese restaurant and had some fabulous, light dishes, including Lemongrass Chicken. And coconut ice cream too! Then home for a quiet nap. For dinner I made the Barefoot Contessa's Macaroni and Cheese for Grownups and OMG, it is to die for. I got us slender little slices of chocolate covered key lime cheesecake for dessert.
This year instead of buying each other anniversary gifts, we decided to just blow a wad on something for the house. We got a big, beautiful deep brown leather recliner for the living room. It's so big it's like settling down into the mother ship. Of course this will primarily be "mama's chair," but I'll let the rest of them sit in it sometimes. :D
Today I made a bunch of Oatmeal, Milk and Honey soap, I was totally out of it. Then our new rescue dog, Libby, found some possum poop in the back yard and rolled in it. I mean all over, even her head stunk. I had the honor of cleaning up the little princess in the shower.
And finally this -- Our 18 year old daughter returned from her overnight trip to Miami with 5 friends to attend Marley Fest. No disasters, the hotel reservation worked smoothly, she didn't run out of money and (only half kidding) no one was arrested. What more can a mother ask for?
