It took so long for me to get out of the house child-free that I almost forgot what it felt like. I could listen to loud music. Or I could sit in silence. And I could have an adult conversation without a trip to the potty or interruption or throwing something. :)
It was July 24, to be exact. So that was, what...about 6 weeks? Whew. It was glorious! Brad's group at work had a happy hour and I took that opportunity to get out! It was so nice to take a shower...put on real clothes and not be afraid to get spit up or peed on...and makeup on!
Here is a picture of Brad and myself at the happy hour! I wasn't gone too long because of the whole breastfeeding situation, but it was nice to get a break without any of the kiddos!
And I had to get evidence of just myself :) I also think I will use this picture as my "before" pic - I have started counting calories and attempting to exercise every day...I know what it takes to get in shape and I am so ready to be back in that two piece bathing suit by next summer!
I felt so cute and happy to be out - and Brad's first comment when I met him was, "Um. Are you wearing purple pants?!" oh my. He said he was kidding. I think he was not :)
As evidenced by a lot of the pictures of Katie, we love Matilda Jane at our house - and they have adult clothes too! The other day Katie came into our closet and asked me if I would wear MJ too - ha! I guess if we are ever going to match, this will be how! She thinks that is a neat idea, so I need to take advantage of that!
