land of kiwi
I had such a lovely, busy, picture-ful weekend.
Friday I was a bridesmaid-in-preparation for a bridal shower, which was so fun and involved lots of apple-peeling and kiwi chopping.
We had a table for fruits and vegetables and dip, and then a table for ice cream sundae supplies.
Plus some apple pies and peach cobbler, and cookies and tea, and pretty water with lemons and limes and oranges in it.
The little kitchen we got everything ready in looked like the Garden of Eden with all that produce!
My tongue was all raw from eating so much pineapple and kiwi ;)
Saturday I got to spend an entire day with my grandmother.
It was a [late] birthday-day together, and we went to Savannah to go thrifting in little shops.
I ate the best pizza of my life, no joke.
Usually food "out" is not that exciting to me; I can make something at home that I enjoy a lot more, but we went to Mellow Mushroom and split a little pizza [I got the mega-veggie, with tempeh, which is a new food. I liked it].
Good heavens. I ate so much of that but felt so okay.
I will eat dry salads for a week if need be! It was incredible.
And about the thrifting? Somehow [maybe since we don't know savannah super-well?] we didn't get very far with the thrifting.
But UO and Target came through for us! As they always will, I suppose.
I love love love my grandmother so much and I wish we could hang out three times a week.
Sunday was church with a few hours of baby nursery- which I love.
It's so fun to be surrounded by adorable little mini-humans.
And then hanging out with Thomas all day!
We ate lunch with friends and rode bikes and sang along to the iPod on shuffle.
I'm so thankful for all the great people and things in my life right now.
God is so good to me!
