Yeah, yeah, it’s a little late. I’m going to stand by my statement that Mother’s Day should be moved to a less busy month. May is just so full already, that I don’t really have time for Mother’s Day. Which is probably why I did my hotel getaway months after Mother’s Day last year, and why I planned a family photoshoot for the fall this year, which is when (and how) I’d really like to celebrate.
What do you do when the windchill is below zero, you've been inside for the past few days, and your kid is getting cabin fever? Why you head to the local furniture store of course!
I swear this blog could be an ad for Jordan's Furniture store with how frequently I talk about it here. However, our options are limited. We've already hit up Target and the local mall, and there really isn't many places where you can get food, entertainment, and is child friendly when it's this cold.
We've been talking about it for a while but we finally did it - we bought a new couch! One weekend we had no plans and found ourselves couch shopping. We had realized that if we didn't buy one soon, we'd have to lug a baby with us to the furniture store, and that didn't sound like fun!
Linzy was here for a visit recently, probably the last guest we'll have before the baby gets here! We didn't really do too much, despite it being Easter weekend, mostly because I get about 10 minutes of energy at a time, and then all I want to do is sit down haha. Sunday Tom and I went to a sunrise service while Linzy and Maia slept in, and then we spent the afternoon outside enjoying the weather.
Date nights for us used to look like reservations at a fancy restaurant, meeting up after work, and heading out all dressed up to spend a few hours talking over multiple courses of a meal. Lately, various complications including shifted working hours, longer commutes and busy schedules have meant that it's been a while since we've had a night like that.
So instead, we've been taking dates nights when and wherever we can find them. Recently, that meant date night at a local furniture store after shopping for desk chairs.
