we have this time where we can share how our husbands have been helpful to us recently. I always feel bad because Darin is ALWAYS extemely
helpful to me. Women in there say things like their husbands let them take a nap, or their husbands let them sleep in. I don't want to stand there and tell them that my husband would let me do that anyday
We don't have MOPs
tomorrow, but if I could I would share my especially "helpful husband" with them. This weekend he was especially helpful. Saturday morning he let me sleep in (like I said-not unusual) until I had to wake up to get ready to go to downtown Dallas to go to a brunch put on by some girls from our small group and then we (the group of us girls) went to get pedicures, and do some shopping (more on this in a sec). I was gone from about 8:45 until about 2:30. Then we went to church and then over to some friends of ours house for dinner, drinks and stories! LOTS of fun! We didn't get home until about 12:45 am (we had put our boys down to bed at their house). Then this morning he let me sleep in (this time until 10:30). I only woke up when I did because he was leaving to go to the gym and I heard him getting dressed. He didn't just leave for the gym, but he took the boys with him, so that I could clean the house, which was driving he crazy! Then, today he let me take a nap. No, I didn't have a hangover... I don't know why, I am just extremely tired lately. He also took us for a walk, and out for ice cream tonight. Seriously, do husbands get better than this?!
I had sooo
much fun this weekend! Saturday morning was sooo
fun. Some of the single girls from our small group are the ones who invited and hosted us for brunch. They made a really yummy meal in their SOOOO
cute little potterybarn Esq
townhouse in this neighborhood in downtown Dallas that I have been in love with since we moved to the Metroplex
. Such a cute little townhouse, and a great brunch, and we laughed soooo
hard telling/hearing stories! We eventually had to leave to go to our appointments to get our pedicures. That was fun too! Just sitting and chatting. I missed doing this kind of stuff with my friends in California. I was able to do this anytime with them when I was single. Things like this are just a little bit more difficult now with kids.
Then last night we went to our friends Jenn and Matt's
, and ate dinner and had margaritas. A couple that came to our small group once a long time ago ended up coming at the last minute too, and they were so much fun! And... They had 3 month old twins that I got to hold and snuggle with that just reminded me SOOOO
much of how much I want a baby!
What a great weekend!
