Mama Mia spa night and rant about Godiva

Mama Mia date night, complete with a visit to the (pretend, at-home) nail salon, hair salon, and homemade chocolate-dipped strawberries…

(which, if I may say so myself, are WAY better than the overpriced chocolate-dipped strawberries we had at Godiva at the Mall of America on Saturday night. They were TEN dollars for SIX of them, and they were pretty flavorless and unripe to boot.  We made thirteen of these, using plump, ripe, organic berries with organic dark chocolate and it was a flavor explosion–and only about $3 for all of it).

I love our new Mama Mia date night ritual. It’s such a special way to reconnect with my biggest girl and to wrap up the weekend in preparation for the week ahead.

the homemade ones

if you look closely, you will see Anna’s tiny hand reaching up onto the table.  She gets very jealous when I pay attention to Mia and has a hard time with Mama Mia dates.

here is Mia looking out at the squirrels eating the food she put out there for them (unrelated to our date, but I thought it was a sweet picture so I posted it).

Happy Monday to all of you!
