a special date

While the boys are away, the girls will play.
Anthony and Wyatt went on a boys off-roading trip leaving Alexis and I a full day to do all the girly things we wanted. 

 Off we go...

 First stop was the nail salon.

 We dined at our favorite restaurant where we played 20 questions and I learned her favorite color was not what I thought it was.  It will also probably change in another week.

And then we finished our day off we some serious shopping.  There is a second hand boutique called Sweet n Sassy  in our town that is the best place to shop!  We both scored and it didn't even put a dent in my pocket.  All of the items are between $2-$8 and many of them have the original tag on.  Can't beat that.  

We are home now resting.  Pretty sure I over did it since my muscles are extremely sore.  Good thing I planned ahead and put dinner in the crock pot this morning.

I loved the extra bonding time on the special date with my special girl.  Days where its just the 2 of us, no interruptions, nothing that has to get done.  Ending the day feeling recharged in our love.

  1. Great post! I want a little girl so I have someone to do girly things with. I'm stuck with sports and monster trucks, lol. The clothes are awesome! I think I may just have to stop by a boutique next weekend. My wardrobe could use some serious changes! Thanks for the post! :)

  19. So sweet to know that you can still have dates and precious time (and learn new things) with your daughter when she is Alexis's age! But you have to admit, are are a pretty cool mom and I doubt she will ever be too cool for you! Thanks for posting and commenting on mine. :)
