Tour of Freedom part II

This weekend Aaron and I enjoyed another small Tour of Freedom, sans the awkward run ins with our past. My mom took Jessica over night so we could do what ever we wanted. Like for instance, sleep past 8 am. Which we accomplished this morning after going to bed at 10:30. We slept til 8:33 this morning. Oh yeah.
We’re so awesomely cool, we totally have a handle on what life is like without kids. It’s kind of empty. But a reminder every couple months is just what we need.
I had a mani/pedi yesterday while Aaron browsed B&N, we ate Thai food for lunch and then spent a ridiculous amount of time cleaning our garage – I watched LOST on my computer while he finished, because if you all remember, I don’t finish projects well. And I took a nap. Then we got dolled up and went to Butch’s for dinner. For a very lovely, very satisfying dinner. With wine.
It was one of the best dates we’ve been on yet, and we’ve been on some pretty mind blowing dates before. We had our first date at Butch’s over 6 1/2 years ago and we haven’t been back for dinner since – we’ve been back for drinks or lunch, but never dinner. And I have to tell you, I’m not sure why. We’ll be making frequent stops on this memory lane from now on.
Today we laid around until the last minute and then showered and readied ourselves for contact with the world outside our bubble. We’ll go to church and then who knows? Maybe some antique browsing? Maybe we’ll finally use our Red Lobster gift certificate … maybe we’ll just drive and take photos. We know for sure we’ll be getting our bundle of irresistible baby neck fat back around 4 this after noon.
Until then.
