Playing Hooky

i returned to the scorching hot valley yesterday to attend an education convention (more on that later). mr. c had expressed an interest in attending with me (yippee!). so, i arranged for our favorite sitter to come over and he and i would head downtown around noon.
well...you know how i'm queen of playing hooky with my kids?
today i played hooky with my husband.
and...it was so much fun!
we didn't plan on skipping the convention. he had to make one stop before we headed over. this stop was at a house he has been working on. a magnificent house. a spectacular house. the kind home owner wanted to give us a tour...and because of the grandness of this beautiful building - it took longer than anticipated (but, so worth it). by the time we were done, we were hot and hungry. and thirsty. therefore, we drove. keeping our eyes peeled for a wonderful watering hole. when low and behold...oregano's jumped right out in front of us. our favorite spot for pizza and amstel lights. the food and beverages were wonderful. but, the best thing? spending the afternoon with that man. just the two of us. it was so nice.
as far as the convention? we will be attending that tomorrow...with the kiddos.
