And How Was Your Week, Honey?

Hubby's home, safe and sound after spending most of the week in California on business. So, knowing I'd had a full week of single-parenting it and craziness at work, he took me out to dinner for an early Valentine's Day treat last night. Chianti, great Italian food and cannoli for dessert - perfection.

Before we left for the restaurant, Hubby pulls out his phone to show me a place where he and his colleagues ate dinner one night.


It's in Malibu. Overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Yeah, wise decision not to e-mail that to me while he was gone.

He did make up for it with the dinner and by presenting me with a new pair of earrings. You're a good man, Charlie Brown.

How sweet of him to bring you a gift...it's hard holding the fort when they travel for business.
I remember when my husband worked long hours and the children were small...

Hope that you are having a great weekend.

Sounds like you really do have a 'honey' for a husband.

PS I love your new haircut!

Glad you all had a fun evening out; "soloing" with the kiddos can be hard. And yes, your fellow was verrrry wise not to share his dining experience while he was away. The Mister learned that one the hard way when he described in detail the amazing meal and restaurant where he and a female colleague dined. He was trying to provide full disclosure, but I did not want to hear it when I was picking up bits of macaroni and cheese from the high chair tray!

Yes, he DID redeem himself after snowing you the picture of that glorious sunset! I know you are glad to have him home - and not just because you've been solo parent for a week...

sounds like he'll just have to take you back to Malibu someday...the pic looks gorgeous and your dinner sounded perfect...we ate at Geoffrey's overlooking the beach in Malibu. My friend Gidget, Kathy Zuckerman, works as a hostess at Duke's in Malibu. I didnt know her when we were there. she was one of the first female surfers in Malibu...

'work the guilt'

Jennifer (Gigi), Geoffrey's is where Hubby went! Although, he told me that the locals pronounce it "JAH-ffrey's." Very hoity toity, no?

Renee, hope I didn't come off as working the guilt too much! I probably shouldn't whine too much about single-parenting it. There are many folks who do it every day with no reprieve, so I should thank my blessings, huh? :)

Just a tad jealous of him!
