This Week

We've had a fun and busy week.  On Tuesday, the girls and I met one of my oldest dearest friends at the Alderwood Mall, about 45 minutes away.  She hadn't seen the girls in about a year, so obviously they are very different and way more grown up then when she saw them last.  And I only see her maybe 2 or 3 times a year, if that, so it was a special treat.

Wednesday we went to storytime at the library and then my mom came for a visit and took as to lunch at Panera Bread.  I ordered mac & cheese for the girls and of course they wouldn't touch it because, heaven forbid, it's not Kraft.  Sigh.  So I ended up eating most of it (and it was so yummy!  If only they would have just tried it) and they ate some of my half of sandwich of some of mom's sandwich.

Yesterday I took them to my former work place to visit with my ex co-workers.  They were a bit overwhelmed and shy with all the people we saw and talked to, but it was really fun for me to see everyone again.  The last time I had visited was over two years ago when the girls were only 4 months old.  Everyone thought they were adorable and couldn't believe how much time had passed.

Tonight I went out for a nice Thai dinner with a girlfriend.  She lives only 10 or 15 minutes away but we hardly ever see each other.  It's weird, but I guess that's just the way it is since she works and evenings are family time and on the weekends we're always busy with projects or just doing things as a family.

Anyway, tomorrow we have an actual date night!  A group at our church is offering Parent's Night Out with free child care tomorrow from 4-8, so we jumped on that and are going out to dinner, just the two of us.  I'm so excited.

Finally, on Sunday we are taking the girls to the pumpkin patch.  Always a good time.

Sounds like you've had a busy few days, but isn't it wonderful to be able to squeeze in time to see your friends. It's so hard to do, but always well worth it in my book. ENJOY your date night! :) :)

And by the way, at 21 months, I can barely convince our girls to eat mac & cheese, or grilled cheese sandwiches. They love plain cheese (in cubes), and they're warming up to cottage cheese...but I've never heard of a kid who doesn't like mac & cheese! I'm just gonna keep trying...surely they'll eventually come around!
