A nite out, for this Mommy!!

It seems oddly strange to be writing my blog, in the middle of the day, but there is something I have to share with y'all, I'm almost bursting at the seams!... lol.

My days usually consist of kids, work, or kids and work.  Not that I'm complaining, but this mom needs a break from both. Ever since we planned our trip to Vegas for my birthday, a lot of unnecessary spending has come to an end, which also meant that Adrian and I's date night once a week, came to halt also.  Even though our trip to Vegas is going to be totally awesome, I miss my alone time with Adrian. Some good food, and a movie isn't much, but it was enough to give this tired mommy a break, and quality time with the hubby.

Tomorrow, is my 4th families daughter's wedding, ( I know your thinking what is a 4th family, well it's my work family).. originally we were going to take Sadie and Olivia, but Adrian and I decided this was going to be our date nite! So no kids, no work, and quality time with the hubby :) I am so excited! You would think I'm the one getting

So, I bought a dress, and a new pair of heels, I'm looking forward to dressing up and feeling pretty, before I turn back into a pumpkin at midnight  We are driving to the wedding with my best-friend and her husband,  adult conversation, I think I still know how to speak that language...

Now, my husband may not dance, and he may not talk much, but just being somewhere else, other than home with him, is going to make my whole week, heck my whole month!  He has been working long hours, and even at home we haven't been able to see each other much.

Sadie will be spending the day and evening with my sister and nephew, Olivia will stay home and my sister in law will come watch her.  Now, don't get me wrong, I'll miss my girls and I love them to death, but I need this night to regroup, so I can be the best mom I can possibly be. 

I'm spending today, washing clothes, and cleaning up the house.  I don't want to feel guilty for having a good time tomorrow, so I'm getting all the chores done today.  As I've said before, a mommy's work is never done.

I am so happy for my 4th family, they mean a lot to me, and I feel so honored to be able to spend this special occasion with them!

So until my fingers dance again.... make yourself feel special and enjoy it :)

Goodnite SweetHeart....

I enjoy the morning, I like the afternoon, but I love bedtime with my girls... There is something so peaceful, and special about putting my babies to bed.  Sadie loves being read to, so after bath time we cuddle up on her bed and read at least 2 books. She holds my hand, and plays with my hair.  It's this time, when I feel so grateful, for being blessed with such precious gifts from God.  We give kisses, and hugs, and are nightly saying is..." good sleep, and sweet dreams".  It's funny how she says, "mommy, I'm not tired", and within 10 minutes she is sound

Now, as much I enjoy and love my night time ritual with Sadie, I love bedtime with Olivia just a little bit more. Sadie, is past the cuddling stage, but my Livi is a great cuddler.. She nestles into my neck and plays with my hair.  I rock her in my glider, and hum to her.  I'm not the best singer, so humming does the trick.  She usually is asleep in about 20 minutes, but I stay with her about 45 minutes.  She is just so peaceful, and there is nothing like holding a sleeping baby.  The calmness of her breathing, makes me want to fall asleep right there with her. 

 I sneak in on both of them before I head to bed myself.  I love watching my beautiful girls.  Sadie is a bed hog, and she utilizes every piece of her bed.  Good thing we gave her a full size bed, or else she probably would have fallen off numerous times by now.  Since Olivia is rolling now, she is pretty much all over her crib.  The way I lay her down at night, is never the way she wakes up in the morning.  I haven't yet moved her crib down to the next level, or had to put the side rail up.  But it kills me to admit that, the time is coming very soon. 

Bedtime, is a good time for me to bond with the girls, and enjoy the quiet time with them.  A time I'm going to miss when they are older, and prefer to go to bed all by themselves.. :(  It's a little depressing to know that these times are so scarce.  I need to get all the cuddles I can, while they are willing to give them to me. 

With all that being said, it is way past my bedtime..., but who's going to put me to bed... lol.

So until my fingers dance again.....good sleep and sweet dreams.....

A Mom's Best-Friend.....

When the laundry doesn't end, and the dishes always seem to magically appear in the sink. When the kids need to be fed, and they need to be put to bed.  After a crazy day, or a laid back day, it always nice to talk to a good friend.

I have a few special women in my life, that make a good day better, or bad day good.  They are women I know will tell me like it is, even if it's not what I want to hear.  Women, that who like me are wives and mothers.  Women that are family, or I wish could be.  I'm very fortuante to know them, and to have them care just as much about me as I do them. They offer advice, and laughter, a hug and a smile, a shoulder to cry on. A friend is hard to come by, and a great friend is even harder.

They are older, and younger, but it never seems to matter. I have a childhood friend, that even though the miles keep us apart, we can still count on each other.  These women, are special in their own ways, they each contribute to my life in a different way.  I am a better wife and mother, because they remind me that I am.

I have had friends that have come and gone, friends that didn't turn out to be who I thought they were.
Then I have these friends, a select few that make me proud to know them.  I've chosen not to use their names, because I didn't ask their permission. They know who they are though.  Or at least I hope they do :)

So, to my friends, that read my blog, and the ones who always remind me I haven't blogged in a while... lol
you mean the world to me, and I hope to know you for a lifetime...

Til my fingers dance again... find a friend and make it last... :)
