Creativity is not our strength

As I briefly mentioned yesterday, Kristian and I celebrated our 2 year wedding anniversary this past Saturday. Kristian's sister very kindly offered to watch Hunter for us so we could go out. She even offered to keep him overnight but at almost 5 months I'm still not quite ready to be away from my boy overnight (despite the fact that I haven't gotten more than 3 consecutive hours of sleep any night this week).

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!

Coastal Flats is also one of my favorite restaurants! We went there when my mother-in-law was in town a couple weeks ago. I love your new watch and date night dress!

Glad you enjoyed for anniversary and got to get out for a few hours. It's amazing how much of a difference it makes but its so hard. I feel like lately when I have a few hours I just want to lay down, or take a long bath!

Aw, sweet! Rob goes to one movie a year so that's what we do.

I go to the movies at least once a month, more if I have time. However, I use my Coke Rewards and buy discount tickets in bulk so I rarely pay more than $8 a ticket. With Coke, they're free tickets that come with popcorn and soda vouchers, too. Just a hint.

The watch is beautiful! What a nice birthday treat and who knows what you like more than yourself!

Don't remember our first overnight away from Laura. It was maybe at the 6 month mark. I know she stayed at my parents' place and at my inlaws often (and still does).

Love that watch! I've become obsessed the last few years. I need to stay clear of the Fossil store.

Glad you guys had a great time!

Unfortunately a lot of the clothes kids wear now a days is slutty. We would have had to change into gym shorts back when i was in school.

You look very pretty, happy anniversary!
