A “Little” Date Night ๐Ÿฃ๐Ÿ’•

Christopher asked me to dress Little for tonight (our weekly date night) which isnโ€™t the norm as I generally try to look a bit more on the elegant side. Turns out he had a really wonderful night planned!

This was the outfit I picked:

The first surprise of date night was building a blanket fort together! I was so happy, it was a lot of fun! Although the cats almost wrecked it a couple of times. ๐Ÿฑ

Dinner was nuggets and wine (in a sippy cup which got tipped over like 3 times as a result of the cats and the cramped conditions, yay for no spills!) and then milk and cookies, the milk in my vintage E.T. glass since that was the movie of choice for the night! We even had a lantern inside the fort.

I cried so much watching this… ๐Ÿ˜ญ

It really was wonderful, so special. I’m gonna treasure the memory of tonight.

Date Night Fun And A New Friend!

Hello everyone. I hope you all had a nice day. Christopher and I had our date night yesterday, and we enjoyed playing with this I Spy book. Christopher bought it for us to play together after @maplesadventures_ reminded him of them. It was really fun!

Today, Turrรณn arrived, and sheโ€™s even more beautiful than I hoped!

I know, I know… too many bears recently… I wonโ€™t lie, Iโ€™ve done a fair amount of retail therapy, I feel like absolute garbage, I miss my friends, my mom, my sis in law, my mom in law. I miss the park, I miss the coffee shop and the stores I frequent on my walks. Iโ€™ve slowly managed to put out of my mind the canceled/postponed things like the musical, the Tampa trip, the cruise, and if Iโ€™m honest, very likely Megaplex as well, I mean, I can hope, but a part of me doesnโ€™t want to hope for anything for this year. Itโ€™s less painful that way.
โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €
Iโ€™m sure Iโ€™ll regain a sense of normalcy soon, Iโ€™m very adaptable, but all of this kinda happened right when a particularly brutal PMS began, and now Iโ€™m just waiting for my cramps to come so I can have peace again, then my mood will stabilize and my headaches will go away.
โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €
Iโ€™ve had a few bad art days (I still call them that despite finishing at least one commission a day, it just doesnโ€™t feel like enough progress). Iโ€™m the queen of โ€œIf youโ€™re a professional you donโ€™t wait for inspirationโ€ and I stand by this still. But itโ€™s been a tough couple of weeks, so if youโ€™re waiting for stuff from me, be it personal commissions, trades or commercial work, please know itโ€™s coming, just a tad slower than usual.
โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €
The good thing is, these slumps always precede massive output, at least for me, regardless of what caused them. So be prepared for that!

Anyway, something really wonderful about Turrรณn is that her ears are a little poseable! I just love her so much. I canโ€™t wait to take my new bears on outings.

Meanwhile… sad little bears (and kittens and donkeys) just want to go outside again. ๐Ÿ’” From left to right, Coffee Cake, Fish โ€˜n Chips, Franklin, and Bizcocho.

To cheer up, I ordered mini donuts from @minidonutworld! Loved them!! Perfect PMS treat ๐Ÿ‘Œ Turrรณn liked them too!

They were so, so cute!! ๐Ÿฉ๐Ÿ’•โœจ๐ŸŒˆ And I have five left for tomorrow.

Gaming Snack Before Riding

Iโ€™m having a little snack while playing Pokรฉmon for just a few minutes… then I think Iโ€™ll head out on my bike. Iโ€™m making some modifications to my bike, AKA the squelfmobile (lol).

As my husband has pointed out and friends have noticed, Iโ€™ve gone full โ€œI donโ€™t care what anyone thinks about me anymoreโ€ this year and my wardrobe began reflecting that more than ever. My bike was already a little strange but Iโ€™m going to go even weirder with it. I got a pink milk crate that I will decorate with silk sunflowers, and Iโ€™m replacing my current basket for a pink open one โ€”definitely less โ€œconvenientโ€ but perfect for one of my bears to sit on. Something else I want to do that I never did because I didnโ€™t want to be *that* weird. I donโ€™t care anymore. ๐Ÿ™ƒ
