Perfect Moment Monday: Nooner

January 23, 2011

in Perfect Moment

“Whatcha doin?” the baritone voice on the phone asked.

“Working.” I said, lest he think I was a slacker.

“What are you GONNA be doing in half an hour?” he persisted.

“What are you getting at?” I countered.

“My meeting finished early and I’m in the neighborhood. Wanna meet me for lunch at [Our Place]?”

After briefly considering the can of lentil soup I was going to heat up, I declared, “I’m out the door.”

And that’s how I had an impromptu lunch date with my handsome husband.


Perfect Moment Monday is about noticing a perfect moment rather than creating one. Perfect moments can be momentous or ordinary or somewhere in between.

Such a titillating title for such a sweet post. I’m glad y’all got to grab a moment together.

That Robger sure is a good catch!

I think the other kind of nooner could have been more fun. ;)

Lovely…and I agree with My Reality (though you probably wouldn’t have posted about it). ;)

So that’s what the kids are calling it these days??

I love surprise lunch dates! I agree with My Reality though. : P

Your blog never fails to give me a warm/rosy feelling.

I love this!

Aawww c’mon! I was expecting a booty call! Well, I hope he at least picked up the tab.

Next up: try the “sun-downer”…and I’m not talking about a yoga pose!

Sounds like you should write a blog post on your own perfect moments!

Cute! How excited were you to forgo the can of soup???


Lori Lavender Luz January 24, 2011 at 3:52 pm

Super duper.

I know I love it when it’s slow enough at work for my dh to get away for a coffee date. : )

Love it. Glad you had a nice lunch with your honey.

How awesome is it that you married a man who knows that a lunchdate is almost better than the other kind of nooner?! And I know I shouldn’t wish my children older, but can I tell you how much I look forward to the day when they are all in school and I can grab a lunchdate with my husband?!


Jamie January 26, 2011 at 6:57 pm

How nice! It’s the things like that that can just make your day. Ya know?
