Share a little love

When you have a husband who has a job with weird shift hours and also owns a business which is a full-time job in and of itself AND you have three kids it's not often that you get a chance to spend time one-on-one with each child.  I get lots of time alone with Lauren while the kids are at school but one-on-one with each of the big kids is kind of rare.  Important and rare. 

This morning Drew had a doctor's appointment.  Chris and Lauren were off to run errands, William was at school, and Drew and I went to the doctors.  We came out and it dawned on me that this was a great opportunity to spend some alone big-girl time together.  We headed to get some new shoes, rode up and down the escalator, went to the MAC counter and put on ridiculous lipstick, smelled candles, shopped for a pretty little skirt for Drew's school performance/graduation next week, and went to lunch.  It was lovely.  Important and lovely.

I haven't had Saltwaters in probably 30 years.  Am I too old for them?  I just hope I'm not going to walk around looking like the 50 year old woman in a mini skirt.  Ya know?  And aren't Drew's fuschia ones so cute?

Gap dressing room, trying on things for kindergarten graduation.  I have a feeling that the next graduation dress we shop for she may not want her old mom in the dressing room with her.  Taking advantage to the max.


  1. So sweet! And I think you're rockin' the sandals. :)

  2. Adorable! Wish I had a little girl to go shopping with!! :(
