Christina Applegate has been enjoying some time away from the spotlight this year after deciding to be a stay-at-home mom to her 3-year-old daughter, Sadie.

But the 42-year-old actress admits that having a bit of downtime allows her to reunite with old friends, including her "Married... with Children" co-stars Ed O'Neill, Katey Sagal and David Faustino. She spoke to The Huffington Post while promoting her partnership with fruitwater, revealing that she's trying to plan a fun reunion.

"Ed, Katey and David and I have been trying to get this dinner together, which is almost impossible because everybody's so busy, except for me," Applegate laughed, " So, we're working on that right now."

She added that the co-stars try to get together as much as they can, with Faustino recently attending her daughter's birthday party. But do she and O'Neill ever talk about getting her to guest star on his hit show, "Modern Family"?

"No, no, we don't go there when we see each other," she said. "We just kind of catch up on what's been happening in our family's lives and stuff like that."

For now, Applegate is enjoying her last few months of freedom before getting back into the acting game. The actress chose to walk away from the NBC sitcom "Up All Night" last February in order to focus on motherhood.

"It was a good time for me and a good place that I needed to go to. I really missed being with my daughter and I couldn't see myself working those hours and doing that again. So, I decided to take a year off after I did 'Anchorman 2' in May and my year is almost up and my heart is breaking," she explained. "It just means it's been a year without actually looking for work, but it's getting to the point where I probably should have a job."

Still, Applegate has soaked up every minute at home, admitting, "I love being a stay-at-home mom, it's the best, most gratifying and most beautiful thing that's ever happened to me."

As to whether or not she sees more kids in her future, Applegate said she doesn't "at this point, right now."

"I'm really enjoying just being Sadie's mama," she said.
