Happy Friday, everyone! Even though Monday was a travel day for me, it still seems like it’s been a long one. There was all that drama earlier in the week, Drew’s had to work late a couple of times leaving me alone to put Jackson to bed (which makes for looonnnngggg days), the weather has been super shitty in the northeast, and for the love of God, Jackson is still working on popping his first tooth which entails endless screaming and crying (and the baby’s been fussy, too. Holla!).
In lighter news, we booked a beach vacation to the Dominican Republic for next month — our first true vacation in over a year — and I’m so excited. It’s been several years since we just lounged around on a beach for a few days and that’s exactly the kind of escape I’m craving right now. Drew won’t be going to London to cover the Olympics after all, so we’re heading to the surf instead. I foresee many drinks with little umbrellas in my not-so-distant future.
As for the more immediate future, this weekend is a special one. Saturday is not only the Kentucky Derby, and Cinco De Mayo, it’s also my mom’s birthday, and the six year anniversary of my first date — a blind date — with Drew. We’ve got a babysitter booked and reservations made at some fancy sushi place in Williamsburg. Who knows, maybe we’ll even manage to stay out past nine.
And what about you? Any big weekend plans? Have you made any summer travel plans yet? Do you celebrate “first date” anniversaries? Discuss.
