summertime and the livings easy…

August 5, 2009

well the weather has finally cooled down a bit. i actually had to turn off the a/c this morning and put pj pants on instead of shorts. and the kid finally wore real clothes! it was a nice change of pace to not see her sweaty little head.

after a full day of chasing her around the house, Scot came home and took us out for dinner. it was really nice because usually our evenings consist of him falling asleep on the floor still in his work clothes (i’m not dissin’, i’m saying the guy is  tired beyond exhausted), waking up for dinner and then heading to bed. i was able to take a nice long (hot, for the first time in weeks) shower while he listened for the kiddo to wake up from her nap, then we got ready and headed to tanglewood for dinner. i had a stupid-good bacon cheeseburger with garlic fries and washed it down with a glass of chardonnay (what? i’m really classy like that). Harper enjoyed her Mum Mum while testing out her new ear piercing scream. yeah, people think she’s being hurt (or murdered) but she has a huge smile on her face while letting out a banchee-like squeal. good times!

tangent : why is it that when you bring a baby into a restaurant the host/ess asks you if you need a kids menu or crayons? uh, it’s a baby. this happens everywhere i go. tonight, she was in her carseat when we came in. why would she need a menu!? one place even offered to bring her a bowl of olives. really? olives? really?

anyways, after a totes yummy dinner, we went for a walk by the water.august09 086august09 104august09 105august09 092

after a nice stroll (and a weird lady offering to take our picture – thanks weird lady!!!) we headed to the ol’ 31 flavors for some ice cream. 2 scoops of jamocha in a waffle cone + the dinner i had = the 5 lbs i lost in the extreme heat shot to heck. oh well, totally worth it to hang out with my 2 favorite people!

    Yeah, people ask me for a kids’ menu all the time, too or crayons…….Um…….I just look at them stupidly and say no thanks, and she’ll eat the crayons. People are weird. Glad you got out with your hubs. :)
