Each week, Mel and I try to set aside some time for us. Pre-baby we would go to lunch or coffee while Idris was in school, free babysitting! Nowadays, our daytime dates are more of a threesome.
Today, we grabbed some coffee at one of my favorite local coffee spots, Espressit, http://espressitcoffeehouse.vpweb.com/default.html I found it kind of funny that one of the baristas from the competition was there as well! Anyway, we had our usuals, an Americano for me and a soy chai latte for the non-coffee drinker. They have great treats there as well, like muffins, cookies, strata and soups. The owner makes them fresh, daily. We split a pumpkin muffin topped with pecans. She also showcases local artists, which is cool. This week happened to be my son's art class teacher. Also, their bathroom has a beautiful mosaic artwork in it, which I forgot to get a pic of, oops!
Little mama was chillin' at first, until I realized she needed her diaper changed. First problem, no changing area. Problem #2, she got tired and refuses to sleep anywhere besides her crib, so we ended up rushing out of there. Lastly, note to self, whenever your baby goes up a size in clothing remember to change out your spare diaper bag outfit, so your child doesn't end up wearing shorts in the middle of winter!
This week was a bust! Today's lesson: our dates have to be better planned and totally revolve around Mena's schedule.
