An Early Anniversary Celebration


Tonight Jeff and I celebrated our anniversary a few days early with a reservation at the chef's table at a great restaurant. The weather was beautiful, the food was delicious, and it was the perfect excuse for me to wear the Calvin Klein dress I picked up at the resale shop for the bargain price of $15.

All in all, it was a great evening.

When I came out of out bedroom all dolled up tonight, Amelia told me she really liked my dress. (That's my girl!) "I hope I can wear a dress like that someday when I'm a grownup lady, Mom."

The boys, on the other hand, immediately started to wail.

Jeff said, "Hurry up. They sense we're leaving so we need to just go."

I replied, "They don't sense we're leaving. They've never seen their mother in a dress before, so they know something is up."

You could almost see it written on their faces: "What the heck is that?"

That my dears is a throwback to the days before you came along and doomed me to a wardrobe of t-shirts and jeans, tennis shoes and shorts. And, yes, you are right. It is a sure sign that I am out of here, at least for a couple of hours.

Don't worry, I'll be back on Mom duty in my t-shirt and shorts tomorrow morning when you wake up. Though apparently I need to throw on a dress every once in a while just to get you guys used to the idea.
