{just me and him}

Dear Thread, I dream of you in my sleep...

Last night was so spectacular! Zack and I spent the entire evening together. Some how we were both busy bees from Sunday on. Thursday we tried to spend some time together but I was feeling a little sassy, a little grumpy.

I did my best.

I even warned Zack, I'm feeling kind of grumpy.

He said, I know and it's OK.


See what happens when you're honest? hah :)

And tonight, word on our Minneapolis street is that he's taking me on a date. I wonder where we'll go? One time we went to this amazing Indian restaurant, Bombay Bistro, but it had such a quiet atmosphere. The kind of restaurant where you whisper? Yeah, I had a hard time there. The food was sooo delish and our waiter was hilarious! Everyone had fun :)

I think some times I can easily let my work take precedence over having some R&R. I think my mindset is, Why take a break? I heart sewing. But... everyone needs a little break from everything once in a while. Recently, one of my good blogging friends Lindsay told me to, STOP! Take a break. Go on a date with your hubby. Take an evening off for yourself. 

While it was pretty much "duh" advice, it was totally needed. I needed her to slap me around via email.

What kind of Saturday plans do you have? I probably will sew for a few hours -- remember I'm working on a secret project ;) -- but then come dinner time I'm out of here like a girl that got burned on her iron.


Yeah, no clue where that came from.

Hope your Saturday is lovely :)

It's our 23rd wedding anniversary tomorrow. 23?? Yeow. Hubs is taking me to dinner which has become a rare occasion - he prefers luncheon dates. Daughter just got a beautiful dress from Christmas and she's dying to wear it, so we have to invite her too! So, we are going tonight as tomorrow I have big plans with my cousin. BIG plans. Hoping to find some vintage treasures there.
