After Emerson was born, a wise and incredibly witty friend of mine (ahem E. G.) told me that there would be days where I felt I could conquer the world wearing my Bjorn and then days where someone could look at me wrong and I would burst into tears . . . . and she was absolutely spot on!
There are days where I feel like I am somewhat "doing it all" and that I am able to fulfill my both my sweetpea's needs, my needs, cross things off my to-do-list and actually sit and talk to Mr. Hotpants for a bit and then there are days where it feels like I am failing on all fronts, and failing miserably! These are the days when copious amounts of coffee are consumed, there is usually a dance party at some point in the day, and inevitably there is a pajama-TV-lounge afternoon involved. Nothing on the to-do-list gets done, no dinner is made (sorry Mr. Hotpants), the dog is not walked and I don't feel I have done much to "stimulate" my toddler's ever-developing-at-the-speed-of-light brain! Do you ever feel like this?
One of those afternoons . . .
Seriously motherhood, or parenthood for that matter, is a roller coaster of guilt, exhaustion, elation, laughing, biting your tongue and patience . . .
Anyhoo . . .who would have thought that an afternoon at the dentist would feel like a mini-vacation!? Seriously I almost fell asleep getting my teeth cleaned today. . . . it was that QUIET in the office that I literally was almost asleep!
My mini-vaca also involved some great Fall magazines and the tastiest juice I have ever had from here! I had the "Greens 3" and it was incredibly fresh and crisp
I am hoping to get some of this in this weekend with my little sweetpeas and Mr. Hotpants!
And I am super psyched for Date Night #2 happening tonight! Not sure what the plan is but I don't care as long as I can get dressed up, eat delectable food, have some "oh-so-needed" cocktails and hold hands with Mr. Hotpants! Oh and have some UH...MA...ZING dessert! Here are some pic's from our date night last week . . .
Drinks at The Georgian Hotel in Santa Monica. Great historic hotel with yummy cocktails
Mr. Hotpants and me . . . he is a such hottie and you should see his tush!
My Clare Vivier clutch that I adore & some "after-cocktails-shopping" which is SO much fun
The Georgian at night . . . we sat out on the patio overlooking the beach . . . it was bliss
Hope you all have a fantabulous weekend
