Theta Mom Thursday

Theta Mom Thursday is BACK. I couldn't be happier because one of husband and I's New Year resolutions was to get more "me time" for both of us, and this is one NY-res I've been keeping! Husband... not so much. But that's his problem, not mine.

Anyways, Me Me Me! Right?

I'll do a quick run down.

every 4 weeks Sunday evening myself and two of my girlfriends from work go to the pictures, it's a new well loved tradition for the three of us because we've managed to work out that if we pre-buy the tickets and then go to Frankie & Benny's for a pitcher of cocktail between us and a shared desert we only pay £15 each. and £15 for a great girly night out? Well, I'm not complaining.

I've been taking advantage of Christmas Gifts such as Lush Bath Products, Books from my wish list and bottles of wine. combined, this is a stella evening in for me and I've been making a point to do it weekly.

Another one of Husband and I's NY-res was that every 3rd Friday of the month we will be having "date night". Our babysitter has been organized and our first "date" will be next month.

January tends to be busier than December for me, mostly because my 4 closest friends all have birthday's and then it's February and it's Valentines day and my Birthday. So there will be lots of parties and dinners over the coming 4 weeks.

Also a new tradition has begun to brew in our household over the last 3 weeks.


Monday is Baking Day - Son and I will endeavor to make those cakes I spoke about!

Friday is Margarita/Foodie night - Inspired by Pam over at Sidewalk Shoes, Husband will be in charge of making the drinks and I will be making a new "up market" grow up dinner. Just. for. us.

What did I say recently about 2010? I have a feeling I am going to be right.

Margarita/Foodie night sounds awesome and it is so good to "see" you Eve!!! You know like the rest of us how important it is to take time for yourself...and it sounds like you have a plan!

So glad you linked up! ;)

Having a girls night is awesome! My friends and I always did a girls night where we would get pedicures and grab some food after. We've been on hiatus since I gave birth, but we plan to get back at it!c

Found you via Theta Mom!
Girls night - woohoo! I am doing one of those this weekend.
Hubby & I have been meaning to keep a date night each month but have not gotten around to it!

I WISH I could manage to go see a movie that often! I love girls nights, though. How fun!

Eve! It's been so long since I've stopped by!!!

You are super busy but all of your plans sound fabulous!

I wish I could force myself to make a commitment to go on dates with my hubby :)
