in town

Wednesday, October 12

My mom is in town this week. We're making homemade lasagna and chili, learning that a cart full of groceries can miraculously be conquered in an hour, watching Jane Eyre with hot chocolate and toffee popcorn, on a mission to add color and skinny jeans {gasp!} to her fall wardrobe, overstaying our welcome at Panera Bread {did you know that if you talk long enough, they'll actually clear your table for you?} and getting long overdue massages.

Best week ever?
I think so.

I had no idea that they will clean your table if you stay long enough at Panera! I usually go there to work on school work and they've never cleaned my table for me before! Lucky you!

Shauna said...

i love panera! the town i'm living in now doesn't have one and it makes me sad. rumor is we are supposed to be getting one, but that rumor has been going around for about 2 years! i should probably stop holding my breath.

i read your blog and twitter in an english accent in my head for some reason. do you have an accent? i don't know why i have pinned you as a someone with an english accent?!

well your family is beautiful and you are the cutest preggo i've ever seen! i've been a silent blog creeper for too long!

enjoy your time with your mom! i know we could all use that sometimes.

Rachel said...

Awww... Makes me wish my mom lived close enough to have a "girls day". I think 2300 miles is a bit far for the commute though. ;) Moms are the best though!

Michelle said...

Sarah-Anne said...

There is nothing better than homemade lasagne that has been made by your Mom. I would love me some lasagne right now actually.

moms are the best :) once i had my daughter i grew so much closer to my mama and appreciated her so much. sounds like you got that down :) pictures of the new wardrobe please!

debbiecutieface said...

aww have fun with your mom!

Sarah said...

My mom's recently made the foray into skinny jeans. She claimed for years that they were "too young." But she's been proven wrong! The ones she swears by are Ann Taylor Loft's skinny jeans and Not Your Daughter's Jeans (sold at Macy's and Nordstrom). Both of them fit older women's bodies while still looking super hip and awesome.

Meredith said...

oh, trust me.
panera bread & i have had many awkward experiences.
such as cuddle bug & and spending an awfully long time sitting in their lounge chairs just talking.
i swear the man took our trash, then offered us refills...then asked if we were going to buy anything else...then started vacuuming under the chairs we were sitting on....
awkward.
the boy and i decided we were no longer welcome.

Yasmeen said...

Oh, I'm so looking forward to my parents coming to visit me from the US (I'm in Australia). Can't wait to do all those simple but wonderful things with them... just hanging out in cafes, catching up, soaking in the sun, antique shopping in small towns. Can't wait!

Sounds like you had a blissful time visiting with your mom. Any success on working skinny jeans into her wardrobe?

pulchritude said...

I think I get the table cleared for my almost always. Panera is awesome. Now I miss my mom.

Nessa @{Casa Braaflat} said...

I loved Jane Eyre. I wish I had thought to add toffee popcorn & hot cocoa to the mix. . :)
Love, Leigh

becky said...

How nice...I enjoy the time with my daughter Complicated Kai, in San Diego....as I now call her. I was just thinking before I read this that more of us "older" lovelies would enjoy blogging. Does your mom blog? As a new blogger, recent retiree, there are a lot of techno stuff to learn, but it is really an outlet I think others would enjoy too.

Charissa said...

OH my gosh, I instantly knew that plate!!! Hahaha. Love Panera-- their mac and cheese is to.die.for. :]

Enjoy time with your mama! Bet you can't wait to meet your little one!!

What an awesome week! I'm finishing up school this semester, and I'm kinda stressed this week. I know you were just there (finishing up school), so just remember how lucky you are to NOT be in it right now, and enjoy your week with your mom! :)
