Our Day.

Saturday? Was amazing.

Leo let me sleep until almost 11.

Yes, almost 11. I had practically 12 hours of sleep.

I'm speechless.

And this is while he was sick. {edited to add that I had no clue he wasn't feeling well. He let me sleep in while he took care of the girls. Have I told y'all how much I adore my husband? I love him. A lot.}.

After Isabella took an early nap I took her to the park. We got fresh air. We laughed. We chased one another. We got some amazing sunshine.

After being there for nearly two hours we came home. Freshened up a little and she and I went to our favorite Mexican restaurant. Yum.

Although I didn't get to partake in any margaritas due to my dd being out of commission we did enjoy chips, tacos and salsa--oh--Bella had beans. Her favorite food es frijoles. She asks for them daily. She is truly part Hispanic and takes after her Daddy. I don't really care for frijoles....

Anyway. So after that we went to Target. Where I probably spent way too much money for a total of four shopping bags. I nearly choked. I did buy two new pictures for our master bath and a Yankee candle {squeal! in my book there are some positives shopping sans husband. which translates to I get to buy whatever I want. although he is always the angel on my shoulder dammit}.

Guess where I went after Target? That's right. The best wine store on the Gulf Coast. Meet Drinx. The owner is amazing. He helped me discover my new favorite vino {best wine ever. King Estate Pinot Gris} last week. And guess what I bought tonite? King Estate Pinot Gris. Yum.

I am now drinking wine. Chillin'. Loving the peace and quiet. And watching LMN. Loves.

To my Isabella? I loved our day today. It was our day. Alone. And I couldn't have wished for a more perfect date.

See, if you came this way I live 20 mins to the home of Yankee Candle. Its actually rather amazing to go to. They have a car museum and their Christmas shop is amazing. When you go the kids gets to always make their own candles. Oh, and Santa is there year round hee, hee!

Chelle, That's SO great...you definitely deserve some time alone with your little girl without the baby. It feels so wonderful to strengthen the bond with each child, making things and time more personal and special. You know what I mean? :o) I still love your blogs..you are so great!!

Ok that seriously sounds like the most perfect day!! And I thought the day where I found that dress and ate 2 cupcakes was good! LOL

I'm way jealous of the park ad sunshine - btw, think on Friday it's going to be close to 60 and mostly sunny here! I seriously hope they are right

That sounds like an amazing and wonderful day! It's also inspiring me to take my little one to the park later. The weather has gotten a little bit better here and I feel we could use some sunshine!

Sounds lovely! I've been sleeping in like crazy lately...I guess I am trying to store up for when everyone says, "I won't get sleep at all!" Glad you had a fabulous day!
