Well, it took 3.5 months, but we did it… Went out on our 1st ‘real’ date since having our 3rd baby, Mario!
… and we took him with us ; )
The big boys spent the evening with papa & nana and I was so excited to have time alone with Bri and Mario. While getting ready, I smiled when I thought about how I still love to dress for my husband. I love when I show up, or he shows up and looks at me with his, ‘I think you’re pretty cute’ eyes. I also love to put something new together for our date nights. Something he hasn’t seen and something I haven’t exhausted.
This is What I Wore
It was a perfect Summer night and there was a little chill in the air so I opted out of a dress or skirt. Our date was casual so this worked our perfectly.
I wore one of my favorite pair of earrings too; from Vianca Mercedes Collection… love!
And my flowy floral top was light and airy and super cheap ; ) $17.99 (<– Buy it here!)
Bri and I went to dinner at a new restaurant called Vivo – It was so delicious. If you go, you have to get the beet salad… incredible, fresh, so much flavor and you’ll wake up thinking about it the next morning.
We sat outside next to the live band and the whole experience was just glorious. Watch a clip of the band here…
Brian and I smiled at each other a lot over dinner. I think we were so happy to sit in a restaurant together, listening to music and eating great food that smiling at each other said it all.
A smile says a lot. Especially if you can read the person’s eyes.
Bri said he could’ve stayed there all night. Mario even slept a little over dinner too! (Bonus)
After dinner, we walked around a ‘Night Market’ nearby. Oh, what a great evening. Long over-do. Date Nights are so important for a relationship. I always say that to new moms and to my girl-friends and then we slip back into life and forget to take time away for just us, out of the home and away from the kids. We’ll go months without a ‘real’ date. (By real, I mean, not walking around Lowes with Starbucks… haha)
Date Night gives you the chance
to flirt, to chat, to kiss, to eat, to catch up…
Rule #1 after having a baby: Don’t forget about your hubby ; )
Thanks for watching the big boys, nana & papa! Brian and I had a lovely evening out…
