Happy Friday to me!

Today Collin woke me up at 7:00 AM and I had the strangest sensation. I was....rested. It was a completely bizarre and unexpected experience, especially since last night I was up with Collin at least every couple hours, just like usual. Well, who I am to question a good thing. I'll take it! It is only 2 pm and already I have done some produce shopping, had an alfresco lunch with a girlfriend and even stopped into the new European bakery for a warm baguette for dinner. Collin slept the entire trip and Lydia was very well behaved. She has been really great lately. She is taking the big sister job very seriously.

Now both of my children are sleeping...at the same time! (Never happens during the day.) I don't even feel the need to nap. Instead I have a load of laundry in, am writing a quick blog while sipping on soda and munching on Almond M&Ms. (Since they are half nuts, I consider them halfway health food.) I have fresh haricot verts for dinner (my favorite) along with steak to grill. Strawberries, raspberries and plums for dessert. Lydia has a play date scheduled with the next door neighbor boy this afternoon. It could not be more gorgeous outside. I will probably crash after dinner, but it is Shane's night to put Lydia to bed (let's be honest, every night is Shane's night since Collin was born) and Amélie came in the mail yesterday. Add some popcorn and it sounds like a perfect way to spend the evening.

Hope everyone has a great weekend!
