Peter has taken Simon to California for an art show for 8 days which leaves Olivia and I to some quiet girl time. Well, since Simon will be having loads of fun with his California cousins, I figured Olivia and I should do something special too! So, I took her on an "m&m" date. "Mom and Me!"
We got all fancied up, went out to dinner and to see the play "Annie" at the high school. Then we went out for ice cream at Baskin Robbins! We had a really fun night together and Olivia loved the performance of "Annie" - especially since they used a real dog for the "Sandy" role. And I was pleasantly surprised by the talent and artistry showcased by our small town high school!
The funniest thing was that I had to carry her to the car after the play because her feet hurt so badly from the new, fancy, wedge shoes we finally bought her(she's been wanting "big girl" shoes like that for over 2 years so we got them at the mall on our way to dinner!). As I was carrying her she stated passingly with a smirk and a sigh, "beauty is pain."

Yeah! I've been waiting for another post on Mathios Life! Thank you!

We're excited to see Simon on Friday. Peter was here on Sunday/Monday and every day Ella asks if Peter is here...if Simon is here. She hasn't quite grasped the concept of days just yet.
