super tuesday

No, this post has nothing to do with politics. We just had a really great Tuesday!

The Sergeant is on leave this week, home with us all day every day. I still have a migraine (Just a tiny one, more of an annoyance now. It's hard to explain; it's still a migraine, but I guess maybe I'm just used to it now. Anyway, thank you all for your well-wishes! It really made me feel better every time I saw a new comment telling me to feel better!!) but today was less obnoxious than usual.

The morning was lazy, what with no one having to get up at 5:30 for pt. I got up with the Little Mister, who kindly slept until 8:30, gave him his bottle, and then crawled back into bed for about an hour while he slept/played in his crib. We got up and played for awhile, and when he had his morning nap the Sergeant and I watched the season premiers of House and CSI, which I'd recorded last week. (Yes, I know we're behind over here. I'm just thankful we get tv in English!)

And then we went out. An Air Force base near here has a Chili's. A real American restaurant, a taste of home. Usually when we go out here (which actually isn't that often) we want something different, something European...but I've been craving ribs lately, so we went to Chili's for a late lunch/early dinner.

The Little Mister usually just wears sleepers, 'cause it's easier, but when we go out I like to put him in something cute. Doesn't he look all grown up? This kid amazes me every day. Oh, and take a good look at those booties. They were knitted from a pattern used by the Sergeant's grandma, by his aunt, for a shower gift. He looks all snazzy in his saddle shoes!

Dinner was fabulous. I, of course, had the ribs I'd been dreaming of...and also a margarita. Just one, and it was great. It's been so very long since I had one. It was before I was pregnant, so...well, a long time ago!

I know this picture is blurry, but I just wanted to show you all how cute my little guy looks, sitting at the table with Mommy and Daddy. He seemed pretty proud of himself.

And for one of my sides I got cinnamon apples...he was quite pleased. :)

After a little shopping, a car ride home, a nap, and some play time, the Little Mister was hungry...again. (This kid never stops eating, it seems!) I told the Sergeant to get the camera when he got that star stuck to his face. It actually stayed there for five or ten minutes, after which the Little Mister grabbed it off his face and ate it. Silly boy...

and then, after a bath and some more play time it was almost time for bed...but first there was hanging out with Daddy. Aren't they precious??!

So...that was our day. Don't you agree that it was a super Tuesday? ;)

  15. It sure sounds super to me!
    (and did you get to see Lost yet??)

  16. Sounds like a great day! Sorry about the migraine. I get those too--and they are "mild" so I understand. Mine start with visual weirdness and then move into a dull throb. Nothing that I have to lie in bed for, but an annoyance,just like you said.
    Glad you had a great day in spite of it!
