Me time.

Monday, June 25, 2012

I don't get a lot of "me" time.  I love spending time with Joey and the kids, or hanging out with friends, so I'm rarely alone.  And truthfully, I don't need a lot of "me" time.  But Friday, some "me" time was sort of forced on me, and let me tell you, I took full advantage!

The kids were spending the night at my parents and Joey was at work, so I was looking forward to not doing much of anything.  I tried to finish up my weekend chores on Thursday so I wouldn't have that looming over me and I would truly just be able to relax.

And relax I did!

I came home from work to a nice, quiet house and poured myself a glass of wine.

I went back and forth between wanting to just grab some take-out so I wouldn't have to cook or going home and cooking something I really loved.  Ultimately I decided to cook one of my favorite meals, Skinny Taste's Cilantro Lime Tilapia Tacos.  And I was not disappointed.

I took my wine and tacos and settled in on the couch to catch up on my DVR.  Dallas, actually.

Evidently Trigger was looking forward to a quiet evening at home as well.

I didn't let him rest for too long, though.  After dinner we headed out for a nice walk around the neighborhood before calling it a night.

A glorious night.

There may be something to be said for this "me" time stuff.

I’m Stephanie - wife to one extremely handsome cop; mother to two extremely silly kids. The hubs and I have been married since February ’99. I love him more each day and simply can’t get enough of him. My daughter, Ashton, is 12 going on 17. She’s beautiful, creative, smart, and oh, so sassy. Taylor, our son, is 8 and is so much like his daddy it’s scary. He makes me laugh all the time with the silly things he says and does. He won’t remember what you told him 5 minutes from now, just like his daddy. I love to laugh and spend time with friends and family. I’ve also recently discovered a love for cooking and enjoy sharing recipes. I love finding new blog friends, so be sure to leave a comment so I can do the same!
