Getaway

Top: Old Navy, Shoes: Target, Skirt: Loft

The other night, I just needed a few seconds by myself.  I didn't want to go out and run errands, I didn't want to talk to anyone, I just needed ONE second by myself. (No social media, no getting anyone in/out carseats, no phone calls, no texts.)

I put the boys to bed, came downstairs, and texted Noel (who was upstairs), "going out, be back in a sec." and a few minutes later "do you want a CFA cookie?"  

I took the long way to Chick Fil A, and listened to old school Goo-Goo Dolls (is that redundant?) on full blast the entire way.  The radio was killing it that night.  (Side note: When I got home and told Noel he was like, "What do the Goo Goo Dolls even sing?"  Ummm... "AND I DON'T WANT THE WORLD TO SEE ME, CUZ I DON'T THINK THAT THEY'D UNDERSTAND..." That's what they sing.)

I pulled into the drive thru and had to turn my radio down from volume 20 (volume 20, guys!) to order my cookies and coke.  Snack of champions.

Oh...and this outfit outside the Angus Barn...keeping it klassy and yoga ing it up for my sister's insta challenge.

How did I not know that CFA sold cookies? That's a game changer right there!

Your quick time out sounds awesome. I understand the need for a minute (or more!), where no one needs you and we can be in our own minds and quiet. Vintage Goo Goo Dolls is awesome, too, it brings me back to high school;)

I have to tell you a funny story. I read this blog post and then later that day went to have an MRI at Duke, which was kind of a scary thing for me. Anyway, I got to choose my Pandora radio station, and guess what they played on Ed Sheeran radio? This Goo Goo Dolls song! It made my heart smile!

We all need a few moments of me time like that every now and again. I'm glad to hear you cranked up the volume! :)
