Another conversation with my husband.

**Weird font and spacing issues today. No idea why. Not willing to spend the time to figure it out.

A conversation that happened between my husband and I several weeks ago and about a jillion times since.

Note before reading: We usually take turns making dinner.

Picture it.

About 8:15 p.m.

San Jose del Cabo.

Both kiddos are successfully sleeping after either random crying (Vivienne) or having to use the potty 600 times before actually falling asleep (Lila).

Craig: I am soooo hungry.

(It's my night to cook.)
Me: Guess what?! Tonight is a special

Craig: Oh? 

Me: It's special because you can [insert super-excited-talking-to-children-voice] make whatever you want for dinner!




Fast forward to a few days after that original conversation.

It's about 8:15 p.m. again. Both cupcakes are sleeping.

Craig: I am soooo hungry.

Me: silence

Craig: Is it one of those "special" nights again?



Ah yes. I'm a firm believer that you can spin ANYTHING to be fantastic.

Note: Our "special nights" habitually fall on the evenings when it's my turn to make dinner. Craig makes incredible dinners on his nights. 

I usually make pancakes.

Who's a lucky man? 



Random: Does anyone remember "Today's Special" on T.V.? Ahhh! See here. I loved this show. Oh my goodness.

"Hocus pocus al-a-migocus!"

Jodie and Jeff and Muffy the mouse!

Oh my gosh MEMORY lane.

(You can watch entire episodes online at the link above. Looking back - how creepy, no?)



  1. Ok.. I just watched an episode of Today's Special and I loved it! I had forgotten all about them! Too funny!

  2. today's special was one of my very favorite shows!!! and i love that you do make-whatever-you-want nights.

  3. Too funny!

    and that was one of my favorite shows! I bet now I would barf and gag if I watched it.

  4. You eat that late? I would die. I'm like an old person at like to eat at 5:30 every night! lol
