This week we celebrated our 8 year wedding anniversary. We actually got a babysitter and went out to have a nice quiet dinner with no highchairs, wet wipes, sippy cups or tantrums. It didn't really matter that our steaks were a huge letdown. I'm sorry, but when you charge $30 for a steak, it should definitely be above average & should make you want to thank the cow for producing such a masterpiece. We hadn't really planned anything for after dinner, so we went to a local restaurant/brewery, sat in the bar, talked and had a yummy dessert of tiramisu, caramel brownie and vanilla bean ice cream. Not a bad night!
While we don't encourage our kids to jump on the couch, today they pulled off all of the pillows, made a big mountain and were playing on it. It was cute, no one was getting hurt, and they were having fun, so I thought what the heck? See the attached video...
It reminded me of the first couch we had when we got married. We lived in a TINY 1 bedroom apartment in an old Victorian house in Oak Park, IL just outside of Chicago. I think it was roughly 800 square feet. That couch was the heaviest piece of furniture ever created. But it did have one redeeming quality- it was the EXACT same couch from the show Roseanne (see below), except we didn't have the colorful afghan thrown over the back.
I was definitely not sorry to see that thing go.
