a date.

{sweater: urban outfitters}
{jeans - on sale for $10 at the store!  
the color i have seems to be sold out!}


steve and i went on a date this weekend.  i hesitate to even tell you how long it's been since just he and i did that--especially for two people who dated regularly before a baby.  ok fine, i'll tell you!  this is the first since parker's been born (!!!!).  (this one might've been the last one?)  i know, i know.  it's ridiculous.  there are a million reasons, though none seem that important when it'd been as long as it had.  we got in the car and looked at each other like, "WHAT THE HELL ARE WE DOING THIS IS AWESOME."  like maybe we were two people hoppin' in our runaway car to take off for the great unknown with a car full of cash?  actually what i really did say to him as we drove away was, "oh you!!  you're the guy that i made that baby with!"  i remembered that i am not just a milkmaid but a lady!  a wife!  i even wore heels!  and lipstick!  and yeah, i might've kept a close eye on the phone in case i got a call to come home because parker was awake and being all demanding as babies can be, but no call came.  it was just the two of us enjoying one another's company.  so, i guess the benefit in waiting forever to go on a date post-baby is that you're realllllllly excited when that date comes.

it was awesome.  i really love that man.

(and, on a much smaller scale, i really love that sweater.)

  12. Dates are so needed! It took forever for my husband and I to go on a date after my daughter was born. First, it was just too hard to get away with the incessant nursing and her constant need for us. Then, I was ready but we couldn't find a good babysitter. We finally found one who is awesome and for the last few months, we've been able to go on a monthly date. It's been great! We're soon going on our first overnight date since our daughter was born (she's 18 months now) to celebrate our anniversary. I'm excited! We are having another baby in a few months so we'll probably be stuck at home again for awhile. Makes me appreciate these dates even more!
