Of Dresses and Dates

Hi everyone! It's been a while since I posted last, simply because I've been home a lot (yea!) working on Christmas preparations and getting the house in order (at least trying to!). We don't have internet access at home, so at this point I have to be out and about to put up posts.

Even though we've kept our schedule pretty clear, we did have a very fun evening out recently. My hubby took me on a last-without-baby-sitter date to a wonderful restaurant! My, my, my, was the food good! I wasn't the only person waddling out to the parking lot that evening. ;-)

The restaurant was located in a remodeled barn, which gave things a delightful ambiance! There were so many little areas and rooms that even though it was packed, you didn't feel like there were a lot of people around you. The Christmas decorations were lovely too!

We meandered home, slowing to look at lighted neighborhoods and taking a slight detour over a covered bridge. It was SUCH fun to dress up, go out and just be together - thank you Honey for the lovely surprise!

One last picture. I can't resist showing off my $13 maternity dress. Everything online and in stores are SO expensive and way too short for nearly six foot me. So I got some sale fabric and lengthened a maternity tunic pattern, and I'm rather pleased with the results!

Should have gotten a side picture though - this outfit makes me look all of my nine months! :-)

The dress is lovely, Gretchen!! The colors are stunning and the patter is rather darling as well. What a fun place to have dinner. *smile* Hope you have a wonderful Christmas!

That is a pretty maternity dress. I remember being so excited to be pregnant with Jessica that I started wearing maternity clothes WAY before I needed to.
