A funny, dressy, perfect date

Bryan and I went out to see a comedian last Friday night. The occasion didn't really call for a dress with accessories, but I wanted to do a little something special for our night out. Bryan appreciates the effort, and so do our boys. Especially Zach. He gets so excited when he sees us dress in something a bit more special than our usual mom and dad clothes. As we were getting ready to leave the other night, he was jumping around the house telling us how nice we looked and to have a great time. "See you after your date!" I corrected him and said, "We'll see you after the sun comes up tomorrow morning!!" Then he told me to touch up my lipstick.

I'm so glad that we make these efforts to nurture our marriage. We had a wonderful time. The comedian was great, our late dinner on a downtown patio was delicious, and the people-watching afterward was very entertaining. We came home refreshed, and we set a good example for our children. It's important for Mom and Dad to spend some time focusing on being Husband and Wife.

Such a gorgeous dress! And you're right, being Husband and Wife is just as important as being Mom and Dad and good for you for nurturing your relationship!
