I am finally dating again

Last night I went on my first date in over a year. 14 months to be exact. I bought a cute new outfit, (sorry, I forgot to take pictures) got all primped, and off we went! We went to dinner at a very quiet restaurant, and got a bottle of cab. Yum. I love bottles of wine at a restaurant. It makes me feel like a grown up. I must admit, it was a little awkward at first. I felt some jitters and kept wondering if I had food in my teeth, or if I was showing too much boobage. It was a great dinner though, and the conversation was easy.
After that, we went to the movies. Who knew that movie theaters on Monday nights were practically empty? It was just us and high school students there. Forget feeling like a grown up, I felt straight up old. We saw The Hangover and it was hysterical. (Warning, if you are easily offended, don't see the movie.) My date didn't get me home until midnight! Oh, then I let him in. And I slept with him. Does that make me a whore? Nope. My date was the hubs. Thats right. I have not been out alone with him since Cooper was born. Really, really sad. You can't just leave your kid with anyone these days! Thanks to my sis who is here visiting who kept Cooper so we could go out. It totally felt like when we were first dating, and is something that needs to happen on a regular basis. Needless to say, we will be looking for a sitter very soon!

  3. That is something I miss out on too. It is hard to find someone you actually want around your child. Glad you guys got a chance to go out!

  8. I love date nights! We used to go on one once a month when we lived 30 minutes away from my parents. But since moving, those days are long gone. Insert super sad face!

  12. Here's my advice on finding a babysitter. Find a responsible 12-13 year old that lives close. If you take care of her she'll be with you for about 3 years. Get one older and they have boyfriends that want to sneak in and their calendar is ALWAYS full!

    Thanks for becoming a follower. In my attempt to get to know my new friends a little better I have tagged you in a photo tag, come on over and take a look.
