Let’s make this simple. No detailed stories or fancy words today. Easy concept, easy pictures.
Weekends are a bit anti-climactic for me right now. The Bod is working 70 hour weeks, which means he’s also putting in 12 hours every Saturday, and as a result he’s (understandably) a zombie come Sunday. This also means there’s no husband help around the home on weekends, and no time away from the kids, which results in my equal exhaustion. But we still want to go on dates together, so the all-glorious couch dates have become our sweet sweet heaven.
Adult time is the best. It’s the top priority. I don’t think I need to preach this either, I’m quite confident you all know what I’m talking about and feel the same way.
One thing is bound to always make the moment feel really special and indulgent: A good cheese platter. Sigh… I’d prep one every night if I weren’t watching both my budget and my weight! For the complete deal it should include fresh berries, light salty crackers, thin slices of prosciutto, and as many varieties of real aged cheese as possible. Oh dear, and for the final bite of the night after it all: a smooth square of rich dark chocolate!
Now open a couple bottles of fizzy drinks, climb under that super soft blanket, and turn on your favorite show. In the words of Liz Lemon, “I want to go to there…”
