My sister got home on Saturday night!! Her flight out of Billings was delayed and we didn’t think she was going to make it since her layover was cut short to only 5 minutes. Thankfully, she was able to make her flight and she arrived in Austin around 11:30pm. We were all super excited to see her, Alice included, of course.
Halley and I stayed up until 5 in the morning talking and catching up, but somehow I woke up at 8 yet again! Our mom cooked a magnificent breakfast of homemade Belgian waffles and we all sat at the table as a family. A couple hours later, the tiredness really hit me and I took an afternoon nap.
When I woke up Halley had created a fantastic lunch!
At one point in the afternoon we all went to HEB (our grocery store) to load up on food for the week. My favorite finds were blueberries and apricots. Fruit salad may be on the agenda for my snack today.
When we got home, the adults cracked open a few beers and we sliced up a mango to enjoy while cooking dinner.
The other day in Health magazine, my mom saw an ad for Applegate Farms organic all-beef hot dogs. We hadn’t had hot dogs in years so we decided we should try them! The ingredient list is super short and only lists things like beef, onion, celery, etc. So many hot dogs are made of mystery meat, but these ones were actually pretty healthy.
I topped mine with mustard and relish and enjoyed some homemade sweet potato fries alongside. It’s crazy how you can chop up a sweet potato, top it with some seasoning, throw it in the oven, and it creates this crazy-addicting snack. YUM!
After dinner we watched game two of the Finals (what were you doing Spurs?) and I took a nice long bath. I am actually finding that I really like watching basketball. Usually I just expect to be bored so I check my computer and never know what’s going on, but when I pay attention it’s a blast!
Now we’re all caught up!
