Thank You Presidents

So, I have today off with it being President's Day and all, while Brad has to work. It's been beautiful and wonderful and amazing all at the same time. I wish I could be a stay-at-home-gf all the time. Now, a stay-at-home-gf is easy to confuse with stay-at-home-mom and although they share some of the same perks - like getting to watch Ellen (Love her), they are quite different.

Let me show you the ways:

Today I woke up at my leisure, went to a morning spin class, where I did not have to drop off my kid at day care, then I came back to the apt to freshen up for a brunch date with my old roomie/still is cousin. Best part - I didn't even have to pack a diaper bag. We wandered down to NW 23rd Street and had crepes, they were delish. Plus, I did not have to share any of it with a small child or eat my meal with my bebe strapped in a front pack (although, they do look quite handy, look, both hands free)

And now, here I am back home chillin' with Ellen in my quiet, child free apartment :) I can nap if I want to and not worry about my fake child making a mess or needing my attention.

That my friends is why I love the idea of being a stay-at-home-gf, all of the perks of a Mom minus the child..... Not that I don't love kiddos or stay-at-home-moms, they both rock... I'm just not ready to give up my free time yet. You can call me selfish and I I won't be offended, I'll just be on the couch watching Sophia Grace and Rosie in peace before I wander over to the grocery store. (Rough afternoon), maybe even hit up the gym again this afternoon, because well, why not?!


Happy Prez Day!!!

PS, It's ok to be jealous of my couch selfie! (Ok, at least a child would give me something to take pictures of or at least with, so I would stop taking selfies...Good news...it's a change of scenery from my work cube?!)

I used to work only 3 days a week so I was as good as a stay-at-home-wife (minus kiddos). I work five days a week now but, like you, got today off. :-) Glad you enjoyed your day!

Even on a day off you still got dressed up - for me that'd be primetime for sweats all day everyday. Someday I'll be a stay-at-home something and I'll love it too!
