A Little Slice of Heaven

Locations of visitors to this page
Today was my idea of heaven. Our best friend Dre came over at about 9:30 a.m. for breakfast and didn't leave until 8:45 p.m. tonight (after baking the most ridiculous cake at our house- a Peanut Butter Chocolate cake). Our friends Anne and Eric came over at 11:30 a.m. and brought us turkey soup and homemade biscuits. We went on a walk and then they stayed until 3ish, playing with Simon and making homemade wreaths on our deck. Then Alicia and Karen came over and made us a delicious dinner of cheese, bread and salad and then we almost killed ourselves eating cake. Here's what almost killed us.

The cake is 3 layers of devil's food cake with peanut butter frosting between each layer and on top and then topped with dark chocolate ganache. Even *I* could only eat part of a slice it was so intense.

Dre took a bath with Simon, Laura put him down, we all watched part of a movie and now Laura and I are getting ready for bed.

We HAVE to have a date tomorrow. Part of the deal of not being in the hospital is that we have to schedule alone time and so far we suck at it. We're going to have Dre watch Simon for a few hours tomorrow and reconnect a little before I start my new job and go on a business trip Tue-Thursday. Exciting and daunting to think about starting something new.

Friends. Food. Home. There is nothing I like better and I had a delicious drink of it today.

Damn it feels good to be home.

So glad that you're all home and well fed! I've been finishing a round of antibiotics for strep, so you can imagine why I didn't even breathe in your house's direction when we passed yesterday on the way to the farmer's market. Laura, if you and S are home on wednesday late afternoon, I have a babysitter, so I'd love to stop by.
