My day started bright and early this morning with a phone call from my husband. He forgot about the time change for me and just wanted to say “good morning,” so my phone was ringing at 5:45 AM. Well, hello, Mal. We chatting for a little while—he recapped his morning and told me about Murphy’s pug antics—so by the time I got off the phone with him, I was wide awake and ready to start the day.
The hotel where I’m staying has a cute little café in the lobby, so I went there for coffee and food. After the big meal that I ate last night, I was surprised how hungry I was this morning.
Check out the fancy Starbucks gate!
The café had a counter where you could place your order and take it to go as well as a sit-down restaurant where you could enjoy a meal. The menu had the usual breakfast options—coffee, espresso, bagels, pastries, yogurt and fruit, oatmeal, quiche, and sandwiches.
I ordered a decaf iced soy latte.
And an egg and cheese breakfast sandwich on a toasted English muffin. Both were delicious and hit the spot!
One Last Thing
On the last page of the People magazine that I bought yesterday was a one-page Q & A with Jesse Spencer called “One Last Thing.” I liked the questions that were asked and thought they’d make a fun blog post, so here goes!
LAST SPLURGE: The purse I bought in Ireland. The handle on the purse that I originally brought on the trip broke and could not be repaired, which was super annoying (carrying around a one-handle purse is so awkward), so I bought a new one at a little shop in Killarney. It was pricey, but I loved it immediately and now I have a great souvenir from our trip!
LAST ROMANTIC GESTURE: Before leaving our house on Tuesday morning, I wrote “I <3 U” on the chalkboard in our kitchen for Mal to see. (I also hid the skull in the refrigerator at eye level to scare him. In our house scaring each other = love!)
LAST THING I COOKED: Easy Jambalaya! Mal said the leftovers tasted even better!
LAST HOME IMPROVEMENT: Planting new bushes and mulching the beds in our yard and along our driveway. It looks so good! I’ll show you guys pics soon!
