We are back in Ocala and are officially reunited with the princess herself!
I missed that crazy face.
While we were in Sanibel, my mother-in-law and her boyfriend kindly watched Sadie for the weekend. We’re pretty sure she had a blast chasing the reflecting light in their yard and commanding their undivided attention. She’s already passed out on our couch and we only arrived home 10 minutes ago, so I think she had a good time!
After breakfast this morning, Ryan and I drove to his mom’s house in Sarasota to pick up Sadie, eat lunch and spend a few hours with his family.
His grandma and her boyfriend came over to visit and brought their adorable maltese, Dottie.
Isn’t she a sweetie?
She is a little camera shy, so getting those two pictures of her took some coercing… or some super-fast picture snapping!
We ate a late lunch that seemed more like a gourmet dinner. I was a fan!
My mother-in-law is a fantastic cook and prepared a meal that began with fresh caprese salad, topped with olive oil and salt.
The main course included lots of delicious food and I filled my plate, returning for seconds of almost everything.
And no meal at my mother-in-law’s is complete without dessert.
Vanilla ice cream and whipped cream on top of fresh strawberries and a slice of shortcake was the perfect ending to a fantastic meal.
Ryan’s mom sent us home with the leftover meat which will be tonight’s dinner.
We made great time on the drive back home.
The ‘90s pop station on Pandora served as our road trip music.
Gotta love Sister Hazel. Ryan said he owns their first CD and it’s somewhere in a box in our house, so my mission tonight is to dig it up! I love popping in old CDs after not listening to them for years. Nostalgia!
Tonight’s plans include being a lazy bum on the couch and catching up on old shows on the DVR.
See ya bright and early in the morning!
