I know, I know…today is supposed to be McFatty Monday and/or Meal Planning Monday.
But I am just not feeling it.
Last week was ridiculous and my choices were out of survival more than being health-conscious. I worked full-time as usual and taught Monday and Wednesday nights as usual–which by itself has been a struggle for me with making healthy choices AND with keeping my mental health in tact. But also this week? I had parent/teacher conferences Tuesday and Thursday nights.
I hardly saw Cort, and I only saw Eddie maybe 4 hours in 4 days.
So I don’t want to talk about my McFatty-ness.
Instead, I thought I would hook up with Harper’s Happenings for Stepping out Saturday…because guess what…I totally went on a DATE WITH CORT Saturday night!
This is probably our first date in three months! It was so fun (thanks to Cody and Liz for babysitting!)!
Eddie and I posed for a picture before we packed him up to take to his auntie and uncle’s house.
overalls and onsie: Osh Gosh
Jeans and tank: Gap Outlet
jacket: Old Navy
shoes: Target (Mudd brand)
headband: New York and Co
Earrings: a gift for being a bridesmaid; they are real Montana silver
bracelet: I THINK that is a premier bracelet (can’t remember)
After dropping Eddie off at Cody and Liz’s house, Cortney and I hit Old Navy (I needed another pair of pants for the work rotation), Bed, Bath, & Beyond (we needed a new candle for the kitchen), Barnes & Noble (Cort needed something new to read. He got Hunger Games), and then the Verizon store (we got new phones! Buy a Droid, get any other phone FREE!!!).
Once our shopping was done, we hit Logan’s for dinner and drinks. It felt so darn good to be out with my husband on a DATE! We got to chat and laugh and enjoy our meals and drinks without having to be on Eddie’s eating schedule.
And when we picked Eddie up, he was all cozy in his jammies and ready for bed!
It was a glorious evening! The kind that I totally took for granted before having Eddie. I miss the alone time with Cort and I hope we can swing another evening away again sometime soon!
