Alex and I were lucky to have Monday off for President’s Day, so we got to spend a little extra time with my family while my parents were in town for a visit. Alex and I were both feeling a little under the weather so we slept in until almost 8:00. Once I rolled out of bed, I immediately ate breakfast.
I had some toast (along with some vitamin C gummies to ward off the impending cold). No coffee for me, since I wasn’t feeling great. I also had a few handfuls of chocolate chip Teddy Grahams after a quick trip to the grocery store. (What can I say- I love them.) I picked up a few essentials since we knew snow was coming.
My family came over for lunch and I ordered food from Carytown Burgers and Fries. They have the best black bean veggie burger. I whipped up a salad to go along with the burgers and fries to balance things out a bit. The burgers are so big that Alex and I just split one but it’s still plenty to fill you up!
We spent the afternoon hanging out with my parents, just sitting around the living room chatting. My dad helped us on a few house projects while they were here and we started brainstorming more things to work on. In an old house, there is never a shortage of projects 😉
Once dinner time rolled around, snow was falling and I started making macaroni and cheese. I’ve finally found a way to make it with almond milk, since we never have dairy milk in the house. It’s taken a bit of tweaking but I’ll share the recipe soon!
Alex had to get some work done after dinner so I played the piano while he worked. My parents brought me a few boxes of music from their house, so I had lots to dig through. (I went through an ebay phase in college where I would order boxes of sheet music. It was a little crazy.) Once Alex finished working, he came down and played some music with me. I love playing music together, especially old hymns. I grew up singing these hymns and it’s amazing how the words just come right back!
We ended the night watching a little Netflix and sharing a bowl of popcorn. Not a bad place to be as the snow piled up outside! We ended up with about 6 inches here in Richmond.
