weekend is over, so I'll give a recap! Yesterday my mom came and watched the kids. Daryl and I had one of the best date nights we've had in a long time- maybe the best one we've ever had! We went to a restaurant with a big group of our friends. I'd never been there before and really wanted to try it- we live a couple blocks away from it now, and I have heard so much about it from other people! I got chicken and waffles with chipotle infused butter and house-made blackberry syrup. And a captain and coke. YUM!!! It was a great dinner, and I had such a fun time being out with other adults. I felt so human! LOL
Then after dinner we went to see ARETHA FRANKLIN!!!!!! I was so excited, I could hardly contain myself. If I had to pick my absolutel favorite, 100% best ever female (or overall) vocalist, hands down I'd say Aretha Franklin, maybe almost tied with Ella Fitzgerald. It was like seeing a goddess, for me. I cannot express how much I enjoyed myself at that concert! Then we all went out for cocktails. I had my first ever cosmo. I liked it! It made me tipsy though, because I never drink. Ever. DH said it's impossible for someone of "my size" (what does THAT mean?" to get tipsy or buzzed on that little bit of alcohol- but that drink was quite large!
Then today, DH gave me a personal mental health day. I slept in, when I got up I did make the kids lunch and put them down for a nap, but he afforded me to drink not one but TWO cups of coffee in peace. Then I went out for a 7 mile run, came home and showered, and went back out to go shopping without the kids. I bought a ton of stuff at gymboree for Jonah because I had gymbucks to use up, then I went next door to Talbots and tried on a bunch of super pricey clothes. I had no intention of buying them, I just wanted to play dress up LOL I didn't make it hard for the workers though, I put everything back myself. I just wanted to see how some of their styles and colors would fit me. I'm glad I did, because one dress I had been smitten with, looked hideous on me! So I am glad I tried it on and now I can let it go. I did go to Target after though, and bought some running capris, two blouses, a swimsuit, and a new pair of sneakers that I needed. All of that for the cost of one of the blouses I was actually considering splurging on at Talbots! And they make me just as happy/look just as good on me!
Now DH is doing "keep them in bed" duty. He told me I seemed really stressed and depressed this week. I thought he never paid attention to my mood/feelings, but this weekend is the best thing he could have given me! Better than flowers or candy or any jewelry! Time with my grown up friends, and then time to myself!
Click the blinkies!
