I’m all about alliteration this afternoon. Last night, Jason and I went to our friend Jamie’s house for dinner. Beforehand, we decided to make an exception to our alcohol free month and have couple of drinks with dinner. It’d been two weeks, so we figured a little hiatus in the middle of the month was okay, especially since we weren’t binge drinking, which is what we’re trying to get away from.
We started out with a glass of champagne and a cheese plate.
I did not try that cheese on the left because I do not like stinky cheese at all. But the one on the right was phenomenal. I asked like five times what it was and I don’t remember but I know it’s from a dairy in South Georgia. I probably ate a little too much cheese.
For dinner, we had spinach lasagna.
I believe that this is the recipe that he used but I’m not 100% sure. It was very good. I had a little slice, along with some salad that I’d brought from home. The was also garlic bread, but I passed. For dessert, Jamie made a chocolate tart with homemade whipped cream. I really liked the cream more than the tart to tell the truth. I am not a big fan of very chocolately things. Although, I managed to eat my entire slice anyway.
It was a nice evening but my stomach was not that happy this morning. I think the foods were just a lot richer than I normally eat. I kind of felt guilty for eating the tart since I didn’t savor and enjoy it, but I’m trying to not let it get to me. We got up around 9 to meet our realtor at 9:45 at a bagel shop. I ordered a whole wheat bagel with light cream cheese and tomato slices. I love tomato slices with cream cheese. I had to use a napkin to scrape a bunch of cream cheese off though. Why do they always put so much?
We drove around with our realtor for about 2.5 hours. For those of you familiar with Atlanta, we looked at several houses in the Brookhaven/Chamblee area. We saw one that we liked and a bunch that we hated. Then we drove back to Decatur to look at one last house before Jason had to go to work and we fell in love with it! The house was listed as a 3/2 but they were being very creative in calling one of the rooms a third bedroom. Really it was an addition that functioned more as a family room. But it didn’t matter to us. We don’t need three bedrooms. The house had a finished basement with, get this, a sunroom with a hot tub! And it was in our price range. Our realtor is going to look up some more info on it and let us know. The only thing is that we went to look it up after we got home and the FMLS listing said it was off the market. That’ll be a disappointment if it is, but hopefully that’s incorrect. I mean, we saw it this morning. There was still a lockbox on the door and flyers inside. It didn’t look off the market.
I’m going to watch Jersey Shore now. I missed my fist pumping action this week.
Edited to add – The house is still on the market. The sellers changed realtors and that’s why it was listed as not being on available. But it is!
