Not that we didn't miss them.
But we were having a lot of fun. Shopping. My husband is one of the few men on this planet who doesn't mind shopping. Don't hate me.
We hit the mall and Toys R Us and very nearly completed the Christmas shopping. And we got some new duds for the two of us. Jay's work clothes needed some updating and me, well, you see, I got rid of anything remotely warm on account fo the hot flashes.
Now, I am FREEZING cold all the time. Sweaters and long sleeved shirts were on the agenda.
Layering is so in right now, thank goodness!
There is no happy medium my thermostat. Only extremes.
Then we got all dolled up and headed out for a nice dinner.
We clean up okay, when we put some effort into it. And don't worry, I wore a jacket over the sleeveless shirt.
For dinner we tried an upscale place. Our tastes have gotten a bit more sophisticated than the A&W burgers we once dined on when out on dates. I had a pancetta wrapped tuna that was unbelievable. Sometimes I wish I lived closer to the sea, I do love me some tuna.
And call me crazy but a dinner out without colouring sheets and crayons is a nice treat every now and then.
It's so nice to have that time together and we really enjoy it because we don't get it that often.
And don't worry about the kids, they were hanging out with my parents and had lots of fun.
Thanks Grandma and Pop, we hope you enjoyed it as much as we all did!
Don't forget to enter my contest, it closes Thursday December 4.
Whoa, it's December already? Where did the time go?
