    For the past few house cleanings, I've been putting her in this tiny playpen and muscling through it! The first few times worked great, but now that she's on to me she's like, "oh no you don't!"

    Hi Nikki!

    Well, we got a BABYSITTER!!! It'll only be our third date alone since we had our daughter, 14 months ago!( My husband travels A LOT!)

    So I think we're gonna go to a fancy restaurant that we got a gift certificate for AS A WEDDING PRESENT!( Again, we don't get out much!) Haha

    Other than that, lots of house work all day so I don't have to wake up to a messy home tomorrow and I think we may go shopping for a new guitar today for my anniversary present, so I can pick up an old hobby again with hubby's encouragement. (Yup, he's a keeper!) I got him a really hot travel bag by a brand I never heard of called Wood and Faulk, I think, that he's had his eye on. So we're both happy campers πŸ™‚

    Thanks for asking! I'm a stay at home mom with a toddler too! You are SUPER encouraging! Keep up the good work!
