About a week and half ago, I pleaded with facebook to send me a babysitter. Actually, I only needed a child sitter, because all my babies are grown-up, and child sitting is easy…feed them junk food and turn on the television.
I am happy to report one angelic sole stepped up to the plate and had me drop my kids off at her house. The kids had a blast and I am eternally grateful.
As much as I wanted a night out to spend some time alone with FringeMan (and I did!), I also wanted a reason to wear my cute new birthday shoes.
On a totally gross note, feel free to diagnose that reddish lump on my foot. It’s been there for a few weeks and is constantly shrinking, but it’s still there. Weird, huh?
Ok, enough of my hypochondria!
I figured I could use my date night as an excuse to get dressed and take pictures for WIWW. I just want to tell you that the girls who participate in What I Wore Wednesday are lovely and inspiring and they make photographing oneself in a favorable light seem easy. For me, it’s not so easy. In fact, it’s next to near impossible!
FringeMan and I went to an Italian restaurant and ate too much. It was nice to be able to talk like grownups without having to answer a million questions from two munchkins. It was nice to be out on a date, something we don’t get to do very often.
No phone for you FringeMan!
Right before we walked out the door, it started snowing. Giant flakes began turning the world white and I didn’t want to risk ruining my new shoes. It’s not only the snow, but with snow comes road salt and nothing kills a nice shoe like road salt.
So I took off my beloved Seychelles shoes and put on my boring black boots. They’re nice, but not like my new shoes. You know?
I see another date night in my not-so-distant future. A date night with clear skies and maybe slightly warmer temps.
Any ideas for date night?
Where do you go when you have a sitter for your kids?
I need some new ideas, because letting FringeMan loose in Barnes & Noble is a dangerous thing.
Go visit WIWW and get some inspiration for what to wear. And because I’m supposed to tell you where I bought my clothes….
Dress – Kohl’s clearance about 5-6 years ago. Coat – Loft clearance many years ago, leggings Gap, Shoes – Seychelles, Necklace – a gift from camo-man.
