Fat Tuesday Celebrations

Normally I cook a special meal for Fat Tuesday replete with all kinds of fattening luxuries like cream sauce and cake.  However this year I am getting over the stomach flu and am enjoying a high carbohydrate diet of only the blandest foods.   Plus my husband has to work late and my daughter has dance.

So much for the Fat Tuesday feast.

Furthermore the day’s normal festiveness was to be replaced by fussiness as I started the morning with a doctor’s appointment for the baby where he got his 4 month vaccines.  Thinking he might be cranky for awhile I wanted to walk with him as he likes to be pushed in his stroller.

So I decided to do something I rarely do. 

I went to the swankest mall in town.

Luck was with me and I got a primo parking spot right in front of the door to that mall’s poshest department store.  And the day kept going along those lines.  Here is little journal of today’s adventures.

    Coincidentally, my little boy had his four month immunisation too! I treated myself to breakfast at a nearby cafe afterwards (after the tears he fell a sleep). Enjoying your blog!

      The baby gets the shot and mommy gets the treat! I think we get more stressed over it than they do. I’m glad you enjoy my blog. 🙂
