My parents were kind enough to wrangle the kids and put them to bed while we galivanted around this little city of ours.
We dined at a lovely, local restaurant that takes pride in making their meals from local resources, also known as a "farm to table" practice, and my meal was delicious.
And then after dinner? We went furniture shopping. I know. SO romantic.
Actually in a way, it was...
See, we are in the market for a new bed. A king-sized one.
For some reason my husband is tired of only having a few inches of the bed in which to sleep.
And I've grown tiresome (LONG ago) of trying to relocate some certain 4 year old that finds himself snuggled up against me somewhere between the hours of 2 and 4 a.m.
It is what it is.
PLUS! Other changes are afoot since it's pretty much time for "baby" K to have her own, no-crib bed as well.
All this to say, we tried out a few beds last night on our date. But don't worry, we just laid on them. Fully clothed. And with a saleswoman looking on.
We're pretty sure we found the one we want and yes, it comes with a remote and 25 year warranty. What can I say, we're getting older. We know what we want. And don't want.
Of course the fun part in all of this is that I also get to pick out a new bed and bedding!
Albeit a tad stressful too... There are SO many choices out there. But I'll muddle through, somehow...
Thanks to my parents for loving our children and us enough to know mattress shopping, dinner, dessert and a trip to Barnes & Noble was much needed.
I'm pretty sure they had a good time at their first Laffy Mardi Gras parade the night before too... despite the rain.
Wishing they could have stayed longer...
