Wonderful Weekend!

The hubs and I were kid-free this weekend!  My ex moved out of state, so he can't pick them up on weekends, and my step-daughter's mom never sees her daughters (long story), so everyone is always here.  The two of us haven't had a weekend alone since the first of August.  Wow!

We started with dinner and drinks at one of our favorite restaurants, Carabba's Italian Grill.  We then went home and enjoyed some more drinks, and truly enjoyed each other's company.

Saturday, he had to work a while which allowed me to sleep late, one of my favorite things to do. We went to a late, late lunch/early dinner at Gringo's.  Love my Tex-Mex.  Then we went to my step-son's house for a crawfish boil.  Yes, we ate first because neither of us likes crawfish (crayfish, mud bugs, craw-deds, or whatever you want to call them).

Not a great photo, but you get the idea... a baby pool filled with icky, crawling, crawfish!  Saturday evening, we did some shopping together (Hobby Lobby and Bed, Bath & Beyond, then we watched a movie together. 

On Sunday, we had to get back to business.  Laundry, cleaning, grocery shopping.  Oh, and don't forget golf for him and a pedicure for me!  My first professional pedicure in... who knows how long?  Plus, I got to scrapbook a little bit.  The hubs grilled burgers for dinner once the kids got home, and we had a nice relaxing evening.  Best weekend I've had in a long, long time!


  1. We have so much in common. This is why we get away once in awhile. Plus when we get away, it's free. All we have to do is pay for gas and breakfast.

    I'm glad you had a great weekend! :)

  2. Those relaxing weekends sans kids are so wonderful. Glad you got to enjoy yours!

  3. in my case husband free is a good weekend

  4. That sounds like a wonderful weekend!!! I'm sure that with all that relaxing you two really did enjoy your time alone together. wink wink :)

    Glad it was great, hope you get them more often then 7 months... last August was a looong time ago!

  5. My sister took us to a Carrabas once, in OK, it was very nice. :) Sounds like you had a lovely weekend. (btw, I'd'vve skipped the crayfish too :p !)
