a glimmer into the life of a mum who loves fashion, decor and prosecco

Some days . . .

After Emerson was born, a wise and incredibly witty friend of mine (ahem E. G.) told me that there would be days where I felt I could conquer the world wearing my Bjorn and then days where someone could look at me wrong and I would burst into tears . . . . and she was absolutely spot on! 

There are days where I feel like I am somewhat "doing it all" and that I am able to fulfill my both my sweetpea's needs, my needs, cross things off my to-do-list and actually sit and talk to Mr. Hotpants for a bit and then there are days where it feels like I am failing on all fronts, and failing miserably!  These are the days when copious amounts of coffee are consumed, there is usually a dance party at some point in the day, and inevitably there is a pajama-TV-lounge afternoon involved.  Nothing on the to-do-list gets done, no dinner is made (sorry Mr. Hotpants), the dog is not walked and I don't feel I have done much to "stimulate" my toddler's ever-developing-at-the-speed-of-light brain!  Do you ever feel like this? 

One of those afternoons . . .

Seriously motherhood, or parenthood for that matter, is a roller coaster of guilt, exhaustion, elation, laughing, biting your tongue and patience . . .

Anyhoo . . .who would have thought that an afternoon at the dentist would feel like a mini-vacation!?  Seriously I almost fell asleep getting my teeth cleaned today. . . . it was that QUIET in the office that I literally was almost asleep!   

My mini-vaca also involved some great Fall magazines and the tastiest juice I have ever had from hereI had the "Greens 3" and it was incredibly fresh and crisp

I am hoping to get some of this in this weekend with my little sweetpeas and Mr. Hotpants! 

And I am super psyched for Date Night #2 happening tonight!  Not sure what the plan is but I don't care as long as I can get dressed up, eat delectable food, have some "oh-so-needed" cocktails and hold hands with Mr. Hotpants!  Oh and have some UH...MA...ZING dessert!  Here are some pic's from our date night last week . . .

Drinks at The Georgian Hotel in Santa Monica.  Great historic hotel with yummy cocktails

Mr. Hotpants and me . . . he is a such hottie and you should see his tush!

My Clare Vivier clutch that I adore & some "after-cocktails-shopping" which is SO much fun

The Georgian at night . . . we sat out on the patio overlooking the beach . . . it was bliss

Hope you all have a fantabulous weekend
