New Year's Eve date with my husband

Today, being the Eve of a brand new year, my husband brought me out on a date.
Now, the odds of going on a hot date-for-two when you are a married woman with two young children isn't very high, so when my husband asked me out, I jumped for joy as if I've been invited to a prom.
I mean, a chance for me to dress up and hang out with the man I love!
We went to Pan Pacific hotel for high tea reception with couple spa that followed.
I love desserts, pretty pastries and anything sweet!
Being your typical meat-and-carbs kinda guy, this gesture is very thoughtful of him!

At the Atrium Lounge.

Very seriously ordering "proper" food for himself.

Oogling the pretty pastries and deciding which one to eat.

Cheers! To a better year.

After that, we went to St. Gregory Spa for our couple treatments. I opted for facial and upper body massage while the Hubs took the full body spa.
I'll be honest with you - I haven't had a facial in YEARS. My eldest is already 3.5yrs old and before that I was pregnant for 9 months, go figure.
To me, I cannot afford the time to lie down motionless for several hours without fidgeting and looking at the watch/phone, missing my children and thinking about the tons of stuff that needs done.
Yeah, my life is sad like that.


It was a good respite. After the therapist pressed and kneaded on my aging muscles, any trace of stress slowly melted away.
Thank you Hubby, for loving  and spoiling me.

We went home and found our two children to be on strike. Adam didn't nap for very long, and Ashton refused to take the bottle and, as usual, took revenge on my boobs the minute he had access to them.
I came back to a familiar territory - with toys strewn everywhere, rowdy cheering, tons of things waiting to be done.
