Sunday evening Chris agreed to keep the girls so I could go to Lubbock. I went to see "It's Complicated" and ate dinner at Carino's. By My Self.

Do you enjoy going out alone as much as I do? I would always prefer for Chris or a friend to go along with me but I don't mind going it alone. At all.

I'm a people person. I like to be with people all the time. I'm social. I'm outgoing. Why do I like a date night with myself so much? Really, people. I need answers.

When is the last or the first time you've gone out alone?


  1. I love to be alone too!

    I think you can't underestimate how little alone time you get as a mother.

    I feel like I need an hour of quiet alone time after school.

  2. Alone time is so needed, especially as a mother. I don't like going to the movies by myself or eating alone in a sit down place. But give me a few hours to walk down every aisle at Target, walk around shops and I don't have to spend money. Just to be alone, enjoy a drink from Starbucks is such a pleasure. And I also enjoy when Eric takes Grant to go do something, just the boys, because I can then hang out at home alone and do what I want.

    Enjoy the alone time. Eric tries to make sure I have at least once a month a time that I am alone fully for at least an afternoon. It helps balance out my life and helps me from going insane. HA

  3. Before kids, I didn't really enjoy going out alone but now I love it! I guess it's because I need it more now than I used to. I'm a better mama for it!

  4. umm... I can't think of the last time! I enjoy time alone at home, but I've never gone to eat or to a move by myself... how sad is that?!

  5. I love love love alone time. I like to go to the movie alone, but eating alone is sometimes a stretch for me. But if you can do it, I'll give myself a pep talk next time and jump in.

    Wish I was there to go with you :(
