Well, I did it.  I’m a proud owner of my very own garden plot.  Thanks to my friend ggsmama who gave me inspiration with her mad gardening skillz, not only does she have a huge garden in her own yard but she also has a garden plot with D.U.G.  She’s high on gardening that girl.

I have a 10X10 plot just a few blocks north of our house and this weekend I planted all sorts of good stuff like green, red, yellow and orange peppers, Anaheim peppers, jalapenos, cauliflower, squash, zucchini, onions, pumpkins and strawberries.  I am a total novice when it comes to gardening (this is my first) so I’m hoping there will be something to harvest  when the time comes.

This weekend also marked my second trip out with the girls since P was born.  I think I need to get out more.  Anyway, we went to Sex and The City-The Movie.  It certainly didn’t disappoint!  Gotta love those gals.

Have you had the pleasure of seeing this movie yet? If not I suggest the next time you watch one watch this. What a heartwarming little charmer of a movie. About accepting people as they are, unconditional love, about being abandoned then learning to love again and giving your heart fully.

Favorite line: “Why can’t you just be who we want you to be?”

Favorite scene: “Nice Talk”

I felt like a grown up. I wore my fancy jeans, heels, dressy black pea coat and smeared on lip-gloss. I left my kid in the capable hands of her nana and papa (they even got her to giggle; she hasn’t even done that for me yet! Boo!) And I spent a night on the town with my husband. An actual date. Something we have not done since Petunia was born. And it was blissful. We ate at a grown up restaurant, not a kid in sight. Sipped our wine while we chatted about topics I haven’t addressed in months. For an appetizer; we ordered Monsoon dumplings: filled with chicken, ginger and garlic in deluxe sauce. For dinner; it was Portobello Napoleon served with grilled tomatoes and balsamic onions, mash potato, goat cheese, spinach and basil. Heaven. The best meal I have had in a LONG time. After the leisurely dinner (imagine that, leisurely) we walked to a historic movie theater. It’s my favorite theatre; I almost won’t go to a movie if it isn’t playing here. This is the type of theater where people “get into” the movie and I love it. We saw Juno, finally. Probably the last people on earth to see this terrific sleeper hit. Maybe it’s not so sleeper any more. LOVED IT! I couldn’t have asked for a better flick to watch. Witty, funny, heartwarming all rolled into a little movie that could. It was a perfect night. Like I said, I felt “adult” once again. And today, I’m back to rolling on the floor with P and acting like a child, but I wouldn’t change that for anything. And when the opportunity for date night arises once again, well, we will cherish every moment.
