The house is empty tonight. There are no sounds of little pitter patters up and down the stairs. No screams of 'Mommy, Little K is drinking from the toilet again' or 'Mommy, i picked up your hair again- it's disgusting!'. The kids are tucked away at the grandparents for a few days while I am left here, with a slightly broken heart.
I miss those little buggers.
But then, it hits me. No kids = No wiping poopy bums. No little cranky people giving mama attitude. And, not having to watch if Goofy found Daisy's "triangle bush" on the Mickey Mouse club (true episode- swear to God!)
And you know what else this means?
DATE NIGHT :)
Alright, on to the good stuff. So what did I wear?
As date night fell on a Monday, I didn't have much time to get ready after work so when time is of the essence, I rely on my fail-safe outfit- a black dress with a few statement accessories. And hello, what better way to make a statement then this vibrant, gorgeous scarf from Alexander Mcqueen! I purchased this scarf a while back in New York city, and have to stop myself from wearing every day! I love people's reactions when they discover that the cute little faces on my scarf are actually skulls, which, I do find quite fitting as I am in a career where I deal with dead people. This scarf is so light and fun, and completely versatile. Here are a few different ways to wear it:
Around the neck:
|Tip: This is a GREAT way to hide a hickey!|
In a sailor's knot:
|What the hell am I doing with my hands in this shot?|
Or, my favorite way- as the super hero cape:
|Make Mommy Chic- to the rescue!!!! I'm sure McQueen would turn in his grave if he saw this shot!|
With the addition of Mademoiselle Chanel, a few other pieces and my Geox flats I was ready to go out for a night on the town. Or, in our case, a three hour meal at Miller Tavern where I didn't have to eat over the sink (like I normally do at home) and a very romantic rest of the evening at home watching very intelligent t.v like Bachelor Pad. Is anyone else watching it? You can admit it to me :)
So to the mothers out there, do you and your hubbies still go on date nights? And do you end up talking the whole time about the kids like hubby and I do?
As usual, thanks so much for reading. And I wish you all a humpy, humpy Wednsday!
