Last night Logan and I finally had a date night. It's been a while since we've gone out but more concerning than that is that we are finding it difficult to spend quality time together lately = not connecting in the way we like. I don't mean to complain but I will for just a minute. I find that we are so exhausted by the time we have gone to work, gotten the kids to their activities (and our kids aren't even super busy), helped them with their homework, made supper for the next day, and cleaned up that by the time we finally sit down at 9:30 or 10:00 we just passively watch TV and go to bed. I know that we aren't the only ones so I am looking for some advice, how do you and your significant other take the time to connect during the week?
Anyway, as I was saying we went out to watch a Christmas Carol at our local theater and though it's not my favorite Christmas story, the show was amazing and we went with friends which made it even more special. My parents couldn't babysit, so my 84 year old grandma came over to watch the girls. I am beyond blessed to have lots of family around who love spending time with our girls, but I feel most blessed about having not one but two grandmas that are still alive.
This sweater dress is a definite go-to in my closet. First off, I love
the color. Second, it's perfect with tights and booties, and the main
reason for loving it is that it's super comfortable of course! I am pretty sure that this will be my holiday outfit for our family dinner. Shhh, the vest works miracles to hide your belly when you've had a bit too much. I've
had it for a couple of seasons and am looking for a replacement as it's
gotten a tad bit too clingy too my body :( and it's beginning to pill
from washing it so much (as mentioned above I wear it a LOT). I am also getting a ton of wear out of my new fur vest featured HERE
and on my INSTAGRAM. I paired it up with my H & B rose gold jewelry which I also wear all the time so it was well worth the investment, especially since some of pieces were gifts :)
