Latest Life Snippets

My husband and I went on much needed romantic getaway last weekend and basically it was the best thing ever.  We drank wine, laid out by the pool, ate bread, dessert, cheese and calamari (call the Paleo police), slept in and acted like married people should.  It was heaven and I am fully promoting many more of those over night parent vacations.  We have quite a bit of exciting things happening over the next 6 months and it was so nice to finally be able to talk about them and get on the same page.

If you are married and have kids I highly recommend getting away for just one night every now and then (even if that means dropping the kids off at Grandma's and coming back to your house to party or whatever you feel like doin). Yes yes you will miss your kids (duh) but it's so important to remember you were a twosome before you were a foursome, or however many kids you have.  My Godmother gave me that advice when I was pregnant with our first son and I will never forget it. 

Since I did  zero blogging this week here is a little recap according to my Instagram (@delightedmomma)

1) The start of our getaway and at this point I think we were both still in disbelief that we were freeeeee haha...kidding kind of.
2) The end of our getaway and feeling so much more connected and on the same page.  Such a good feeling.
3) Ronin sippin on my green smoothie.  He loves them!
4) My favorite nail polish at the moment.  It is by Essie and it's called, "Where's my Chauffeur."
5) Early Saturday morning Farmer's Market stop for a flat of the sweetest fresh berries.
6) Paleo mini key lime pies that are so freaking good.  I will share the super easy recipe (no baking required woo hoo) next week. 

Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

We will have been married 25 years in May, and I could not agree more. And, you are right...doesn't have to be a trip to Paris. A simple shared cup of coffee is better than nothing at all. Can't wait for the recipe. My youngest loves key lime. I am always looking for healthy, non-chocolate recipes for her as she suffers from migraines.

I'm trying the remember the last time we had an overnight together with no kids. When I was in the hospital having Baby. Does that count? Before that, ummmmmmm, one of our early anniversaries when we only had one kid. Yep, that was a lonnnnggggg time ago. Lindsay, I can't even remember the last time we had a couple HOURS with no kids. Gad.
Glad you guys got away for some R and R. Sounds amazeballs.

Last month my mother took both kids (4 & 3) for a weekend and we had a great "staycation" sans kiddos. It was heavenly, and you're so right...as a couple we NEED our alone time to reconnect. Can't wait for that key lime pie recipe - yum!
