family date night

Friday was a rough day. Isaac was being difficult. If I wasn't directly involved in what he was doing, he was crying, fussing, or getting into everything he knows he shouldn't. In less than an hour and a half, we had played outside, played in his toy closet, read books, eaten breakfast, eaten snacks, drew with crayons, listened to music and played with toys in the living room. I was exhausted, frustrated and at my whit's end. Nap time could not come soon enough! [and all the moms nod their head]

When my husband came home he could tell I was not a happy camper. And so later that night he wanted to get me out of the house to do something fun. So, for the first time in weeks (other than church on Sunday mornings) I put makeup on, did my hair and got dressed. I felt like a million bucks!

We went to Chipotle (cheap, healthy dinners are the best), wandered the aisles of Toys R Us, chasing a toddler and stopped at Braum's on the way home for an M&M sundae. It was a fantastic end to a terrible day.

[he was very happy with his purchase]

[yum, yum, yum!!]

I'm linking up with a good life and finding beauty in the ordinary


  1. How do you like braums? We always love going there when we are home. They have a peanut butter chocolate sundae that is really good!

  2. I have YET to try Chipotle.... wish I lived closer to one!

  3. Aww sounds like a lovely end to your day :)

  4. Chipotle is the BEST! Our kids love the cheese quesadillas dipped in quac! Can't say no to that one!
