Ashlee is Mama of one darling boy. A 28 week early bird, now 1 and some change, doing beautifully. She lives near Chicago with her sweetheart husband and French Bulldog. She's a thinker not afraid to get her silly on. Babywearer, veggie queen, photography nut. Before the domestic days Ashlee was pursuing a future in developmental psychology but has happily shifted gears in favor of staying at home and couldn't imagine doing anything else. In her free time (ha!) you can find her whipping up babyslings, holding down the fort at Mama Speaks and spotlighting as an Itsy Bitsy Yoga Instructor.

Date Night!

Oh it has been a long time! So, David and I love movies- we used to go once a week- at least- but that's been the last thing we've had time to do the past few months. We went to see Chronicles of Narnia at the end of November and that was it, not even an entire DVD since for me. We'd tossed around the idea of going to the movies, but always talked ourselves out of sitting in a crowded movie theater with Xavier for 2+ hours. The solution... DRIVE-IN!!! Sunday we headed out the drive-in to see XMEN and The Davinci Code. We got there early, bundled up, sat outside and drank hot cocoa. Then headed into our comfy car to watch the first movie. Xavier was great, slept snuggled up on my chest. David and I held hands and ate rubish. It was a dream! Ok I'll admit I fell asleep about 5 minutes into the second movie but it doesn't matter. We had our first "date" in months- here's to many more!

    That's great! The drive in is so nice when the kids are still young. We haven't been in so long, but I remember sleeping through the 2nd movie, too! top
