Friday Night Date Night

I will be the first to admit that finding time to spend with my husband alone since we have had Raj has been quite the challenge. We have the babysitters, we have the resources, but to be 100% honest, we truly do just love spending our nights with the little guy. I never really understood why people felt that way before having Raj but I can say without a doubt our favorite times have become times that the three of us can get some good quality fun in. As a mom, I love this... but as a wife, I must admit that I miss my regular weekend nights out on the town alone with my husband. D has always been my best friend and we have such a good time together and I really do miss the ease of picking up and driving to LA for pasta dinner and wine at 8pm on a Friday night without a care in the world! 

Would I trade Raj or the times we have with him for anything in the world? No.
But do I ever want to stop 'dating' my husband? NO WAY!
I think it is important to hold on to those times. Yes, it is a little more difficult now, and truthfully we defintely opt for something more local instead of of driving over an hour to eat pasta, but we do still try to find time for one another. 



One of my favorite things about Date Night is getting all dolled up for my husband. I am 100% sure that even if I rolled out in sweats and flip flops that he wouldn't mind (or judge) but where is the fun in that? I want my husband to look at me like he did when I was 19 and he picked me up for coffee dates in between college classes. I never want that to fade and I refuse to ever stop trying to be 'that' girl for him. 






I love the fun and flirty feel of this dress. It is playful and youthful and made me feel like I was 19 all over again. I am all about dressing appropriately and dressing 'my age' but I also don't see anything wrong with still wearing what makes you feel young and happy!

Just because I am a mom and just because D is a dad does not mean we are ready to retire our most capable looking outfits ;)

Happy Date Night, Youngins!

With love,
Amanda
