Birthday Weekend + Nursery Update

January 23, 2012

Hi friends!

When last I saw you, we were headed out the door to Chattanooga for an overnight birthday celebration.  Chattanooga was great—we got massages and ate some delicious food.  When we rolled into town around lunchtime, Yelp helped us find Sluggo’s Vegetarian Cafe…and I’m so glad we did! Our lunch was awesome!

Ryan got a black bean burger:


…which was delicious and huge.  But the real star was my veggie bowl, filled with breaded tofu, veggies, and tons of peanut sauce:


SO.  GOOD.  So good I was still full about six hours later! Luckily I managed to make room for our dinner at St. John’s.  Unluckily, the restaurant was pretty small and our waiters were very attentive, so I didn’t feel comfortable whipping out the ol’ Nikon during dinner.  But if you’re ever in Chattanooga and looking for a nice meal, St. John’s hit it out of the park.  Local, seasonal, and delicious food all around.

On Saturday, we’d planned to explore Chattanooga…but the weather gods had other plans.  Unfortunately, it was POURING down rain, so we just headed home.  No biggie—Chattanooga is less than two hours away from us, so I know we’ll be back soon!

We spent Saturday running errands and crossing things off our to-do list…and some of them had to do with the nursery! It’s not ready for the big reveal just yet, but here’s a little preview:

…it’s really coming along!

Last night, for dinner, we whipped up an easy frittata with some simple ingredients and leftovers that we already had in the fridge.

Into a skillet went six eggs, some milk, parmesan cheese, leftover roasted potatoes, and spinach:


…baked for about 15 minutes, and voila! Frittata!


Hope you had a great weekend.  I need to get to work on my to-do list…I think it’s going to be a busy day!

See ya!
