Truth be told, sometimes as parents, you forget to just be you or to just be a couple. Maybe that doesn't happen in every family but it really has for us. We're both so busy with either work, baby, school... that we just don't make the time for ourselves. It irritates us so much when people are talkers and not do-ers so we've really tried to not be that way and just make shit happen! And in the recent weeks, we've actually pulled off "me" time and date time. I really, super love it.
Last Friday, we went to the Cocktail event that I'd mentioned winning tickets to. It was so nice to just have a night with my sexy bearded man! The food was yummy, the cocktails were even better AND it was all free! Oh, free beer too. Guess what we drank the most of that night? We got in a ton of people watching, listened to some good music and got to see some art. It was fun! Honestly, the crowded bar atmosphere isn't our thing anymore but we said screw it and had a blast. Go, us!
Saturday was a really great day, too. Lots of down time with our girl and we even got her crib set up for the transition from co-sleeping to sleeping on her own. (By the way, it's been amazing. We're ALL sleeping much better and should've done this long ago.) That night we met up with my friend Megan, her fiancé and their daughter, for dinner at the Boardwalk on Bulverde. It's a food truck park that we've loved going to for a long time so it was a great idea. We didn't realize though until we got there that this weekend was their Food Truck Throwdown so it was super crowded. Totally fine but heat + crowds + a tantrum-y babe don't mix. The food and company were really good but let's just say my child should've stayed home. hahaha
The rest of the weekend consisted of important things like admiring my new Old Navy clearance necklace (yes, I totally spent time admiring it), Ronnie whipping up frozen bananas into faux ice cream, sniffing Fall candles and wanting to cry because fall feels so far away and dressing up our child like a little old lady at Target...the yooj. It was a good weekend.
Hey-oh! Notice a new look around here???
Thanks to Jana, I have a snazzy new blog design that I am completely in love with! I have a new button and Jana even makes her design logo match YOUR design. (see the bottom of the page) Isn't that awesome? I just gave her my ideas, a color palette and she whipped it up super fast. I highly recommend her! Check out her design page here. I also updated my about me + us page and created a daily reads page :)
