Date Night!

Trent and I went out on a date last night! We are trying to do one night a week away from kids. Much needed therapy for us right now. We take a turn each week deciding the activity. Last week we shoveled gravel into wheel barrows for our date. Trent's idea for sure. This week was my turn. We traveled down to the Mandarine and had a feast that could have fed 6 people! It was delicious as always. Then next on our list was to do returns to a few stores. Trust me. This IS a treat. If I can ever go to a store and get anything done without kids-I'll take it! However, I did make a purchase at one store, so I think that is a perfect activity for a date! Next, we went and saw Kimmy and baby Oliver. He is so tiny and such a cute little weed hopper! I am sure Kimmy appreciated us visiting without the tornado of children that usually follows us everywhere! We returned home to find all our kids in their pjs watching baby einstein. Thanks Jill for watching the hoard!
I am really into these cute hats lately. I LOVE the short bills and I love to be able to cover my bad hair when I need to! I would much rather spend money shopping than on some "date" activity like miniature golf or whatever. We will save those activities to do when the kids tag along!

I'm there with you! I would rather spend money on clothes or other things than an activity! And when you can do things without the kids it's always so much easier! I'm glad you guys can get out...we need to do the same.

Love the hat.

Cute hat!! I love date night too, and I like to shop then, too. Unfortunately there is nowhere to shop here! What little there is closes at 6:00. Sigh.

I didn't think that has was that cute until I saw it was less than 10.00 and then I realized that it was soo cute! Truth be told you just make the hat cute. I had such a nice time last night. Thanks for inviting me. And thank you Jill for watching the psycho cinco. It was very therapeutic to be have a calm night out.

That hat looks so cute on you. I have one like that from Maui and I have been looking for more. Unfortunately most don't fit my big head...

And yes, my headband was a "farmer's market" headband, although technically I got it at the Quilted Bear (same maker though).

You have a good head for hats. I look like a goof in a hat, but still wear them to hide my ugly hair.
