Initially I had all sorts of cool ideas for ways to celebrate during the daytime but since my sister-in-law wasn't available until after 4pm to watch Hunter we decided to just go to dinner and a movie. Yeah, not super creative but I can't remember the last time we went to dinner and a movie on a Saturday night, even pre-baby, it's too damn expensive. Umm $23 for tickets and $4.50 for a SMALL soda? Do I look like Donald Trump? Sigh.
We did start out the day with a family trip to Costco where we spent WAY too much money per usual followed by a trip to a watch outlet store in the mall so I could buy myself a belated birthday present. Say hello to my new friend-
I love it like a fat kid loves cake.
Note- I haven't owned or worn a watch since high school. I feel so adult!
We then headed home so I could make myself pretty for date night. I just love having a reason to get dressed up and look like a hot wife rather than a greasy, frumpy mommy.
I believe this dress is from Target and I bought it last summer in anticipation of having a huge bump (it's NOT a maternity dress though) I still love it, it's SUPER comfy.
The happy couple still crazy in love and good looking after two years and one kid!
We headed to dinner at one of my favorite restaurants- Coastal Flats for food and drinks. My Fi-Let Mig-Non, as I call it, was divine.
After dinner we walked over to the movie theater to see The Avengers. Yep super romantic movie to watch for your anniversary. Actually it was my suggestion and I think I liked it more than Kristian did. On the way to the theater we passed some prom kids taking pictures by the fountains. When exactly did prom dresses get so slutty? Thank God I have a son.
We had a great time together sans baby and it was a much needed night out. And as for Hunter, well he was the perfect angel baby for his aunt and cousins of course!
