Gratituesday: Mama’s Day Out
There are so many amazing days through out the year to make memories. They are usually centered around holidays and birthdays but I have to tell you, for me, some of the best days lately have been in between the special occasions. Last friday was one of those days.
I enjoy spending each at home with my little toddler, but on Friday my husband gave me the best gift a mama can get: a mama’s day out. No responsibility of feedings, diapering, and cleaning up messes, just a day out. Nope, it is not my birthday or anniversary, just a sweet gift of, “Enjoy your day and don’t hurry home.”
Hey, I wont argue. After leaving the house, I headed for my 16 week appointment with my midwife. It was such a joy to hear our sweet little baby’s heartbeat. That sound just never gets old. What a great way to start my mama day.
My next stop: Panera! Soup and salad were calling my name. By the way, they have a new salad called Spinach Power, I highly recommend it!
Next I did a little browsing at the Mall. I didn’t buy anything, but it was nice to walk around World Market and Ann Taylor Loft. I found tons of inspirational pieces that I think will be perfect for my new kitchen decor plan! Stay tuned, thats coming next week. I did find some cute summer cardigans and blouses that I’d love to add to my wardrobe but I’m waiting for the end of the season sale.
Just before leaving the mall, I went back into Panera to take some treats home for my loves: a bear claw for the hubby and an Easter egg cookie for Little Buddy.
Fourth stop for the day: a pediacure. I honestly can not remember the last time I had one. So this was a huge treat for me.
My day was complete by my hubby taking us all out for dinner to a little bistro we’ve been wanting to try.
I couldn’t have asked for a better day. I’m so grateful for my husband who know how to give just the right gift: a mama’s day out.
What are you most grateful for today. Please share, I love hearing all about it!
