I make it no secret that my husband is my absolute favorite person on Earth. I absolutely love nothing more than spending time alone with him. Like most couples with young kids, we rarely get to spend time alone, which causes me to go into major bouts of withdrawal. Even in the wee hours of the night, we have a four year old smack dab in between us! We rarely seek out help with watching our girls. However, after being inspired by Quatro Mama's blog post on dating your husband and convenant relationships, I decided our time alone was long overdue. So my hubby took a mental health day on a Monday....a very rare occurence. My husband does NOT ever take a sick day! Our youngest went to daycare and our oldest went to my brother's house for the day. My brother and his fiance were kind enough to watch Avery all day on their day off! That's brotherly love! We woke up not knowing where our day would take us, but by the end it turned out to be one of the best days I have ever had. I managed to indulge in a bubble bath in our garden tub.I did NOT look as fabulous as the woman in this picture, but I felt like it! I typically don't wear heels with poof balls on the top, let alone in the bath tub! Instead of a glass of bubbly, I had my favorite beverage of choice.
After a quiet, relaxing morning without Disney Channel or Radio Disney (insert gasp!), we left the house and went to our favorite restaurant, On the Border, for some empanadas.
