Hello everyone! I am very thankful that my dear husband let me have me time yesterday. I went on a weekend trip to have some little entertainment in Oklahoma. We go there once in a while when we he has a few days of. But this time we take turns on going there. I had lots of fun. I missed dear hubby and our little girl but I need some time off for myself once in a while – away from house chores and routine.
On my way home, I stopped by at a department store to buy some birthday gifts – for a friend’s daughter and for my niece. I took my time. I felt great when I got home. 🙂
How about you? What do you do or where do you go for a me time?
Again, my girl friends and I had a Moms Picnic and get-together at the park this afternoon. It was a Hawaiian Theme picnic we dressed up in a flowery and colorful outfit. It was my first time to be in this park although it’s only 15 minutes drive from my house. There is a splash area for kids to play and get wet on. There is also a small pond a little bit down hill so feeding ducks is possible. Bike trails are also available for those who enjoy biking in the area. My friend also said that several concerts are held in the park occasionally.
I got there a little late because I almost forgot about food that I have to bring and share with everybody. I baked chicken breast with mixed vegetables in garlic herb mix. I did not bring DD with me because she was already napping when I was getting ready.
As usual, when mommies get together, there are lots of food to eat. After the early dinner, we started a few games for the kids and us, too. It was really fun because after the young ones splashed and ran their bikes, they got to play the games first.

It was a wonderful picnic day at Harry Myers Park in Rockwall. And a wonderful time together with friends and other moms.
As part of of my ‘me time’ today, I went to the Asian Festival in Dallas together with my girl friends. My dear husband took care our darling daughter today. I woke up very early for this trip. It was a pleasant day to go to Downtown Dallas. My friend, who lives just a mile from my house, picked me up this morning.
My darling daughter was still sound asleep when I left this morning. I know she will be looking for me when she wakes up. But I told her last night that I will be gone for a while today and will be back in the afternoon. I also told her that she and daddy will be planting more seeds in the vegetable garden. Our little princess likes to help in the garden. And she is very interested in planting. So she already had the idea of tomorrow’s activity.
Because I am used to going out with darling daughter with me, leaving the house for a girls’ day out or party makes me feel guilty sometimes. But I know deep within me that I need to get out of the house by myself once in a while. My husband is very understanding. That’s why I love him more and more.
At the festival, me and my friends had a great time. We looked around for interesting booths from different Asian cultures. We saw nice cultural performances.

One of the things caught my attention was the fountain by the entrance of the venue. I saw kids enjoying themselves splashing and getting wet in the hot sun. I thought of my little girl while I was looking at the kids having fun. If she was with me today, she would’ve dragged me to the fountain in no time wanting to join the kids as they play in the water.
Fountain of fun!
The festival was held in Main Street Garden in Downton Dallas. It was a successful event.
