I hope everyone’s weekend was spent having fun with friends and family! We had a great one that included an Indian festival and date night.
Saturday Joseph and I picked Charlie’s mom up and met him at a local high school that was hosting an Indian festival. It was great! I feel that it is never too early to expose your child to culture. He had a blast watching the dances and the elaborate costumes.
There was a fantastic fashion show that gave us a glimpse of the festivals of India. They wore authentic costumes and we were educated on the rituals that went on during the festivals.
We ran into our friend who is from India, so he was able to explain everything to us and give us the background story. His mom was dancing in the fashion show as well!
Of course I couldn’t go to an Indian festy without getting tatted up..
After the festival Joseph went to his grandparents and Charlie and I enjoyed a much needed date night!
Date nights are way more exciting when you have kids. You actually get to to dress up and feel like a normal human being!
We ate at one of our favorite restaurants downtown and met up with some friends after.
Sunday we had dinner with my moms where we indulged in some excellent burgers, cucumber salad, squash casserole and the best brownies of all time. Sorry no pics- I scarfed it down way too quickly. We stayed and talked for a bit then went home and I made some of my ‘stoner tea’ and relaxed.
Don’t worry it’s not what you think- I picked up some ‘ bedtime’ tea at Fresh Market last week and Charlie dubbed it my stoner tea. ha.
The ingredients include chamomile flower, spearmint leaf, licorice root, lavender flower, Valerian root along with a few more natural ingredients.
So far I have really liked it. The aroma and taste are relaxing. It has a hint of a spicy taste, but sweet as well. Definitely no need to add sugar or sugar substitute. Click here for more reviews.
Have a happy Monday!
