My mom gave us an early Christmas present this week and offered to keep Tessa for 48 hours. I miss her and can't wait to see her tonight, but Nekos and I have really enjoyed some extended kid-free time. We went on a dinner-and-a-movie date, slept in, hung with friends and spent one whole lazy day together watching stand-up comedy specials on Netflix and crossing Christmas errands off our list. (Including a run to the mall, where Nekos dropped off some blues CDs he'd burned for Santa Claus, who he struck up a friendship with when we took Tess. For real.) I'm so grateful to have my mom on hand because I'm the kind of person who needs lots of alone time and me time to recharge my batteries. Getting away from Tessa for a bit really makes me appreciate her that much more. I spent this morning looking through pictures of her over the past year and I'm awed by how she's changed and how much we've grown as a family and individuals.
This is what I wore yesterday when Nekos and I went out for a late lunch at Le Peep and did some last minute toy shopping for Tess at Phillips Toy Mart. Nekos gave me the skirt and cape as early Christmas presents so they had to make an appearance in a new Stuff I Wore post. He bought them right off my wish list, which is so brainy of him don't you think?
Merry Christmas, all!!!
