The Ying and Yang of mojitos ....

Saturday night 7:00 pm. Kids with grandparents. Husband and I are out for the night. It has been 8 months since our last social outing with grownups, in the evening.

Sunday morning 7:00am. Kids with their mother (father is sleeping in after some cuban Mojitos last night). It will take me 8 months to get over saying Cuban Mojitos, without thingking about last night.

Note: the previous owners of our house gave us a carpet allowance. We cashed it in for a beautiful dinning room buffet and got the carpets professional cleaned. In these pictures you can see both: the beautiful buffet and the crappy carpet. Which one would you choose - new buffet or new carpet?

Just found you through lunanik...love the site.

You look really nice for your night out and I TOTALLY would've taken the buffet! The carpet is always going to be dirty with kids...

for sure...the buffet! when we moved into our house, 3 years ago...all we did was clean the carpet. and, we still haven't replaced it.
enjoy your buffet! your kids are still small so, the carpet is going to get ruined, anyway!

I so would have done what you did! The carpet is going to get crappy anyway, you might as well get some gorgeous furniture to go on top of it!

Great picture of you by the way...you look fabulous!

What's funny about this is you look equally happy in both pictures. In the first one, your smile says, "Holy crap! I get to go OUT and be a real person tonight!", and the second one is mid-laugh while the kiddos use you as a jungle gym. Both are great smiles!

PS LOVE me some mojitos! Sorry about the yin-and-yang-ness of it all!
