Oh No She Didn't...A Night Away With My Husband!

Oh no she didn't....YES I did! I left my poor children and ran off to Palm Springs with the Mr. Best thing I could have done. So glad I went. And it almost didn't happen.

I have not often left my babies. Maybe once or twice, over night. I worry about them too much and we don't have a ton of family near by. That being said I knew the Mr and I needed to have:


1) A conversation without being interrupted.
2) Some Sexy time when I am not exhausted.
and
3) LAUGHS!!!

And we did. Mr and I talked during the drive up and back, at dinner at a French Bistro and all times in between. We caught up on all things business, kids, and life! As for laughs we were howling trying to imitate Kristen Wiig and Fred Armisen when they are Garth and Kat the singing team.

We literally died laughing. I mean I was crying laughing trying to do this!!! Have you seen the sketch? You can watch it here:



Best night ever!! Doesn't the Mr look relaxed?

OH, how wonderful!!!! We all need that rare time away (sans, precious children!) Like you, we haven't had family close so those times have been few and far between. So glad you had some time to reconnect!

Wonderful!! Getting some alone time w/ a spouse makes a parent a better parent in my opinion! I'm lucky in that my parents live close by.... hubby and I got 3 nights away about a month ago. I felt like a NEW woman! So glad you had a fabulous time!!

Good for you and the Mr. It's so important to have grown up time. We were lucky when our children were little...the grandparents would beg us to take a night away every month or so.

How wonderful for the two of you. Palm Springs definitely is the place to relax. My husband and I went there for our tenth anniversary and enjoyed every minute of our stay.

Kate said...

It's so important!! We don't go away overnight without the kids often either, but we are trying to get back in the habit of a weekly date night. Now that the kids are getting older (7 & 5) they are excited to have sleepovers at Grammy & Grampy's house on a more regular basis too:)

Looks like the perfect getaway!
