a night out with my one and only

It has already been over a week since we had our date, the first one, just us, in over a year! This was long overdue people. And it was such a treat. Jeremy surprised me two Friday's ago with a night out. My parents came to babysit-they were on there way back from a trip to New Mexico, and since Waco, is on the way to everywhere, they babysat for us. My favorite thing was getting to have a conversation with Jeremy without any interruptions-that is pretty rare these days. I am sure you can relate to that.

I have been busy around here. I am in an organizing/decorating frenzy. I am still trying to finish up details with the office space Jeremy built in August-we continue to be an example of the home remolding fact that it will take twice as long to finish your project than what you had planned. I really just have some small details left, in addition to sewing a curtain. The curtain is already cut and pinned in place. Maybe I will sew it tomorrow. We'll see. I can't wait to share photos with you.

Now on to more important matters...guess who decided to stand up and start walking this evening? We were hanging out in the girls room and all of the sudden, Stella took about 10 steps over to Jeremy! It was so fast and unexpected and totally cute. I will try to have my camera on hand the next time so the grandparents can see.

Also, I am so happy to share that my altered envelope purse I shared with you in the last post, won the altered envelope contest! They announced the winner last Monday, what a great way to begin the week.

Speaking of Stella, she is wide awake and screaming, Jeremy's studying, that means I am on duty-gotta go.

Good night!

First of all, I have to say that you are absolutely adorable. Both of you!

And bravo for getting a night out! Too bad it took you a year, but I know how that goes with the season you are in. We used to have late night dates, once the kids went to bed, just pretending we were going out but really we were just sitting at a table eating take out food!

You do what works!

Can't wait to see those photos!

I've been reading off and on for a while. It's nice to see how handsome a couple you and your husband are. Keep up the good work
