A “true” vegetarian meal, a chandelier, and an apology.

(Longest title ever?)

After Saturday’s grilling festivities (and leftovers) z said he was ready to eat vegetarian for a while. Instead of making one of our typical veggie meals (pasta or fajitas), I decided to make what I told z was, “a true vegetarian meal.” Whatever that means, haha! It was just a true veggie-packed, delicious meal.

On the menu: mashed potatoes, sautéed sage mushrooms, roasted asparagus, and bruschetta!

z and I really enjoyed this meal! Different, delicious, and just what the doctor ordered!

Ok, moving away from food briefly! We did a little rearranging/decorating in our house and I am loving the way everything came together!

We purchased this new beautiful piece from Crate and Barrel because we wanted a TV stand, one that didn’t look like an ugly media center, but also had a place to hide all the wires and cords! It looks so much simpler and I just think the wood is gorgeous!

The old “tv stand” was really just a table and wasn’t really functional. Instead of getting rid of it, we repurposed it!

Check out our new bar area!

A couple new touches that made a big difference!

Now to end on a sweet note…z brought these lilies home for me today. He said he was on a conference “paw” with Louis today and was instructed (by the dog) to bring me flowers as an apology for chewing up my new TOMS.
