well long time no blog.
things have been fairly busy around here at casa-petitegourmand.
but big daddy & I have a weekend to ourselves and are enjoying every minute of it, so I don't want to waste too much time in front of the computer, when we can be out and about doing things that are so much easier when you don't have a two and a half year old to chase after.
I booked big daddy a massage first thing yesterday and then we decided he needed a little bit of retail therapy.
so we loaded up on some new fall threads (if the weather ever cools down enough to wear them) I must say I love dressing up big daddy.
he usually puts up a fuss when it comes to trying things on and gets frustrated easily with sizes, scratchy material blah blah blah...but yesterday we had some success and found him a bunch of things that he loved.
handsome devil that he is.
I was just happy getting a new lipstick and shimmer powder from Bobbi Brown (the make-up artist not the cracked out singer dude)
we also managed a relaxing lunch here.
and sat and enjoyed a latte at a coffee shop afterwards.
and also grabbed some last minute tickets to see Cirque de Soleil.
It was as always, very entertaining.
It blows my mind what the human body can do.
not to mention all the great lighting and stage effects.
had two long deep sleeps in a row and honestly I feel like a different person.
that's not to say that the first thing I did when I woke this morning was to call my mom to see how my sweet lulu is doing.
poor thing has a really bad cold and was really sick the day before she went to my parents house.
but she seems to be doing fine, told me she loved me a dozen times and blew kisses into the phone.
sniff sniff..
maybe we should pick her up a day early?...
or not.
lots planned for today.
just big daddy & I.
we need this time alone together to re-connect.
it was so nice to walk hand in hand again and remember why we are together in the first place.
speaking of which...

is that guy picking his nose behind me??
nice one.

it sounds like you're having great time! enjoy every minute you have left...and then seeing lulu again will be heavenly.

great spooky masks.

Funny how when we are without them all we do is want them back...but in a while.

Sarah said...

Congrats on a luxurious lulu-free weekend. The mask shots are kind of freaking me out...will you ever show us what you guys look like? Otherwise, I am going to start assuming that Big Daddy is the nose picker. I am just sayin'...

Dana said...

Would LOVE to have parents close enough to grab a weekend for two...

So jealous you got to see the new Cirque show.

BD's mask will be a hit with his new duds.

Fun fun fun. Sounds like such a fun weekend. And so necessary, don't you think? And the "therapy" is definitely necessary. Especially if it involves shopping. And Cirque de Soleil - I've always wanted to check it out. Very interesting.

Either that or smelling his fingers... ew.

Time alone together sounds lovely, though it is hard to reconcile that with not seeing her as much during the week as might be nice in an ideal world.
