I've been needing a break lately- a time where I could get away for more than a few hours to do whatever I wanted, without Avery with me.
So my very supportive and understanding husband let me have all day Saturday to myself. Oh the choices of what to do! My friend Nikki and I decided to head to downtown Los Angeles and visit the fabric district. Now we've been there before- a few years ago before her wedding, so we kind of knew the lay of the land so to speak. We walked up and down the streets and popped into and out of any of the shops that looked interesting. I was looking for fun fabrics for handbags, and Nikki was just looking.
It was probably over 100 degrees outside, and we spent about 2 hours or so. The result: 1 yard of beige linen for $8.00 and 4 silver rings for attaching straps to a bag. Bleck! I was so disappointed, I was hoping to find a mecca of undiscovered fabrics that would make fabulous bags. Oh well, next time we venture downtown we will probably only hit one or two of the big stores that carry all the popular name fabrics.
Later that afternoon when I arrived home, I was a little worried about what I would find when I walked in the door. This was the longest I have been away from her- would my poor hubby be ready to jump ship and wish he never volunteered to give me the day? Well imagine my surprise when I opened the door to find Avery sitting on the floor reading a book and squealing with laughter at the pictures! Oh my, it was the cutest thing ever. I forget about reading with her, I get into a set routine and quite frankly I think Avery gets bored with me. So having a whole day with dad all to herself was probably the most exciting thing ever for a 6 month old!
Oh yeah, and I came home to find that Franz had re-caulked the bathtub, WD-40'd her squeaky bedroom door, washed three loads of laundry, washed all her bottles, and gone on the weekly Target run!!! I LOVE my hubby :)
I really should get away more often :)
