Parte Tres: Home Again, Home Again

We {sadly} left Mexico on Friday evening. We left sunny skies and 65* temperatures...so sad to leave.


But, no matter how sad I am to leave a vacation, I'm always happy to come home. And part of that "happy to come home" feeling meant happy to sleep in my own bed (Tempurpedic pillows, how I missed you), happy to cook suppers and happy to get {somewhat} back into my routine. 

We came home and I immediately started our sandy, beachy laundry; we ate Raising Cane's {I missed chicken}; and then realized that Brandon unplugged the TV and the DVR before we left...meaning I had no shows to watch. None. Will you hate me if I said I pouted and told him that I was very mad at him?

We slept really late on Saturday and I went to the grocery store (ahh, it felt good to get into my routine). That afternoon, we sat on the couch with hummus and crackers and watched our shows on NBC.com and ABC.com. (Love that.)

And for supper? I made my aunt's Hot Hammies and Hashbrown Casserole for supper. 

Please make this. It was so easy, so yummy and husband loved them. 


We watched the Rangers lose...badly, and then awoke around 3 a.m. to no power from the huge storm that passed through Dallas. We're talking hail, major thunder and lightening, lots of wind, and NO POWER.

If you know me, you know that our house is basically a freezer at night. And the fan is on high. Even in December. But I sleep all cozied up under the covers ("in a cocoon," as Brandon says) and therefore need the freezer action. 

So when there was so A/C and no fan? I was miserable. I was up around 3, 4:30, 6, 7 and finally was lulled back to sleep when the power (and my fan) came back on. Hence us not waking up until 10 a.m. 

We sleepily sipped coffee on the couches and I decided to finish my laundry by ironing. 

I hate ironing. 

But I was tired of looking at wrinkly clothes in our closets. 

So I bit the bullet and ironed in my PJs while Brandon watched football. And then we ate Hot Hammies and Hashbrown Casserole for lunch. Because the recipe makes a lot. 


We're currently cozied up on the couch; Brandon's reading Harry Potter and I'm typing away and wasting entirely too much time of Pinterest. And we're dreading going back to work tomorrow, but I guess it's inevitable. 

Happy Sunday. Hope yours is just as relaxing as ours.
