LALF: When Baby Boo’s away, Mama will Sleep.

17 Jun

Your not going to believe me.

But I haven’t had this little one with me since Wednesday night…

My mom and dad have her and are beyond excited to spoil her with toys and love.

You could call it a birthday present, or you could say that Mama, after one to many sleepless nights from a teether, has now become a walking zombie..

Since I have had no Baby Boo, at first I just kinda sat there and cried..haha I just am so used to having her around, I didn’t know what to do with myself.

Then, after my full first night of sleep, I realized that I really needed this time to sleep, having me time, and sleep.

Oh and spend time with this lover boy 🙂

Don’t mind our sweaty-ness.

We had just gotten back from a 2 mile run UP.A.HILL.

Whenever I exercise with my hubby, he always pushes me past my comfort level.

Like to the point of throwing up.

This..Makes me Love him/ Hate him.

More so love him because for my birthday, Hubby and Baby Boo woke me up to a Green Smoothie.

I was shocked because it was the most delicious Green Smoothie I have ever had. APPARENTLY it had milk, rainbow chard, spinach, strawberries, peaches, and banana..

I still don’t believe him.


I think there was a little love in there too.

Then we met my parents at an Indian Food restaurant.

Everyone was kind of skeptical, but It was MY day, and they were gonna eat what I wanted. 🙂

I enjoyed an assortment of goodness,

Along with one to many bites of delicious Naan Bread,

Hubby was a little bit nervous, but he fell in love instantly.

Then we said our goodbyes to Baby Boo and my family.

I may or may not have shed a tear..

But I know Baby Boo is in good hands.

Now I am sitting here at 9 in the morning, just woke up, snuggled in a blankey, and sipping my Green Smoothie..

And I may or may not have eaten chocolate this morning too..


Maybe I’ll go get a pedicure, or take a bath, or read some magazines, or bake…

Happy Friday and Happy Weekend Bloggy Friends!! Don’t forget to indulge today 🙂

    Isn’t it so wonderful having YOU time?? You don’t realize how much you NEED it until you actually have it. My mother-in-law was here for ten days and it was so wonderful – she basically spent the day with Carter and I went to the gym, the grocery store, or wherever and didn’t have to worry about having a child with me. So refreshing!!! Enjoy it!

    What a fun time with your hubby, that naan looks amazing!! I’ve never been to an Indian restaurant before but I would love it. You look fabulous in that white dress, gorgeous!! 😀

    The naan alone in Indian restaurants is enough to win over skeptics! I know you’ll miss her, but enjoy your “free” time.

    Live a little Friday – awesome idea. I just made some cookie goodness that will be up tomorrow. I may have had sample(s). Quality control is key.

    First let me say Happy Birthday 🙂

    I can remember the first time I left my first born baby. He was about 9 months old before I would leave him more than a couple hours. I cried so much that night! It gets much easier, and when the second baby came along I was all for overnight stays (except for the fact that I nursed so that was an issue). Now I can’t wait to have my time without them. I love my children dearly, but I love myself as well. I know that in order to be a great mom I have to keep my sanity as well. Me time is much needed and deserved as a momma! Enjoy your weekend 🙂

    Oh, I totally get why you miss your Baby- she is so adorable! But i guess as long as you have that handsome hunk by your side, you should be fine 😉 You two are just one beautiful couple!!
    And Your dress is so cute- I love it!!

    Happy Birthday! You, your honey, and your baby boo are so cute together! Your hubby was awfully sweet to make you that beautiful and yummy smoothie! I’d love to try it! And I love your choice for a birthday dinner! I adore Indian food, and it’s probably what I would choose too!! Have a great weekend, sheila
