Me time

Monday, April 26, 2010 |

I’m a single gal this evening.
{and enjoying it!}

My husband is on travel which means …

I’ll be chatting with my girlfriends and catching up

I get to choose the TV program I want

There will be a long bubble bath in my immediate future

The entire bed is mine ~ I’ll be in the middle

The bathroom will be neat and tidy

Our home will be {really; almost too} quiet


A light girly dinner for one

I vacillated between the following dinner options:

Ben and Jerry’s with a glass of chardonnay


Sushi, edamame and a glass of chardonnay

{I went with the latter}


Have you tried 14 Hands chardonnay?
If not, you really should.
It's from Washington State and offers a slight buttery refreshing taste ~ just lovely!

What a perfectly fabulous evening you have planned! I'll be honest, I'm jealous! I'm home with a sick hubby and I am starting to feel like I am coming down with his head!! Hope you enjoyed your sushi and wine, my two faves!! XOXO Have a great week, Jo!

Sounds like a PERFECT evening!

Audra said...

Enjoy your evening. I love it when I have the house to myself. I gravitate to the center of the bed too!

Your dinner looks amazing, thanks for the suggestion on the Chardonnay. I will look for it this week at Total Wines or Bevmo.

Casey said...

Sounds nice!! I vote for the Ben and Jerry's meal :)

My dh is off to NY and Paris for a week... rough life, huh?

I love nights like that, and they also make me thankful when my hubby comes home too!I am not a Sushi girl, but the wine and ice cream sound wonderful!

Thanks for the comment on my blog. I may need to start a "Crafters Anonymous" for the addicted crafter...

Have a great week,

Your evening sounds like such fun! From the dinner options, I'd have chosen "both"! Hope you had fun!

Tina said...

Oh enjoy!! Not sure what Ben & Jerry's is but the sushi looks amazing and would have won my vote - the chardonnay was always a no brainer:) Hope you enjoyed your quiet evening with a clean bathroom - my idea of luxury! Wishing you a wonderful week Jo ~ Tina xx

I'll be like you tomorrow! That's funny I always sleep in the middle of the bed too. Your dinner looks tasty!

Hi Jo,
I'm so happy you stumbled on my blog and left such sweet comments about my black eye from the beach:-) Now I get to visit yours and it is so pretty. I love your even have a way of convincing me that I missed out on a home sales party. lol
I don't get many of these single nights but when I do, they sound much like yours...except I eat Ben and Jerry's Phish Food or Whirled Peace. I just LOVE those guys!!!
Hope your evening was wonderful from start to finish.

JMW said...

Okay, can I be you for a day? Enjoy your evening! I'm going to have to try that Chardonnay - sounds great!

What a special evening for the one of you! I don't think I've done that in forever... Hope you fell like you've been able to rejuvenate yourself!

Hi Jo,

Every once in a while, it is nice to have some "me time".
Your evening sounds great and the sushi and edamame beans was a great choice, especially with a nice glass of chardonnay.
Enjoy your special time and have a wonderful week.
