Sometimes the yhough of going home and continuing the regular routine is just too much to take.
So with Daddy out of town, Doodlebug and I switched it up. Dinner out!
We went to our go-to restaurant that has an amazing Mediterranean hummus plant that we both adore and had dinner. Just the two of us.
It was lovely.
Just what we needed. Cause here is a quick run down of the past couple of weeks.
- The Tire Swing Incident. Doodlebug feel from a tire swing at school and got her first black eye. No stitches but glue ( that still hasn’t fully worn off) and an anxious Mommy.
- THE FLOOD that rocked Louisiana. We personally were didn’t have any damage but so very many in our community have been and it’s just devestating.
Plus some news in our own family that hits all the high notes and other news that hits all the low notes.
This month has been an emotional one to say the least!
So sometimes you need to shake up the routine. Focus on the one thing in front of you and just be in that moment. Doodlebug and I needed a dinner date.
At least she eats some of the broccoli, right?
Our discussion went down like this:
“Doodlebug, why do you only eat the leaves of your trees? ”
“Cause I like em. ”
Fair enough. This was not a battle to fight. This was a mini Mom victory. Now, doodlebug had been a good eater from the get go but we’ve visited our own peeks and valleys.
At 2.5 eating veggies that look like veggies and not having to hide them is something I know some fellow mommies dream of! Honestly I think it’s because she watches us eat all these things and it’s totally normal in our house.
So…not only are you what you eat…. But so will your kids eat what you eat.
But no pressure…lol.
In the world of social media it’s so easy to get caught up in the over abundance of birthday parties. I’m surely in that place. The party is two weeks away and I’m still searching and finding new things to add. Just today I decided the above picture will be on her princess/prince dressing table.
Totally unnecessary. So cute.
I also saw a post about adding a gold bottom to glass vases with just painters tape and gold spray paint. Oh goodness. This could be bad. It’s cheap! It’s DIY! I surely can handle that!
We will have pictures and memories to last forever! Excuse me I have to run to Hobby Lobby and I only have an hour for lunch!

Update: I still haven’t purchased the gold spraypaint but I did find cheap white frames that I adore at Michael’s for only $2. I love their shape and price and also that after her party they can go in her room and I won’t be worried about her handling glass frames. Win-win-win!
