A Girls Date.

Beanie, sipping on her "latte."

Yesterday, we were trying to figure out what to do with our afternoon. It was a gorgeous day out, but it was a bit too windy for Bubby's tastes and Beanie decided she was too cold while Glenn was pruning the fruit trees. I tossed out the idea of making lattes, or even going out and getting one.

"Oh, like a girl's date Mama!" Beanie exclaimed.

How could I refuse?

I started a pot of coffee for Glenn and he and Bubby had a "boy's date" at home while Beanie and I headed out for lattes.

We chatted in the car. When we got to the counter Beanie said she'd like a "latte please." As we sipped our drinks (hers being a steamed milk, not a latte), she said that she really liked rice vanilla lattes. She told me how it was her favorite coffee shop. She wondered what Bubby and Daddy were doing at home. We had an excellent time. It was just what we both needed.

She insisted on taking my picture too.


  1. LOVE THIS! Kayley and I had a date today too!!! We went to the movies thanks to grandma and grandpa.

  2. Yeah for girls days! Sometime we should do a mommy, yissy, and beanie date!

  3. That is so incredibly cute! I bet she will treasuer her dates with Mommy. When I was little my grandma was the one to take me on "dates" and introduce me to all the old ladies as her girlfriend and all those things that I remember fondly now! =)


Thank you for taking the time to comment! I love to hear from you.
