I need a date night!
My kids are driving me absolutely batty. And they're going to be home for the next four days. Don't get me wrong. You guys know I love my kids! LOVE them! But, I just need a break. I woke up this morning and the first thing that popped into my head was, "I wish there was just one day that I didn't have to do anything." I wish I had one day all to myself, or one night when my hubby and I could go out and away from here.
I love the nights when my hubby and I can get a hotel, go out to dinner, have drinks together and then possibly go out dancing. Since those occasions happen very rarely, I love to make them special.I love to dress up and spend time making myself look good. I know it's a silly thing at my age. But, getting ready is part of the fun. That's one thing I miss about being young(er). I really enjoyed the whole getting ready process.
I like to wear a special dress and just look HOT!
When I go out for a special occasion with my hubby, getting ready is one of the best parts. I like to "surprise" him. I don't wear full-blown makeup very often anymore. I usually have my "5 minute" makeup on if I wear makeup at all. On special occasions I take my time and actually wear eyeliner, concealer and a different colored lipstick than my everyday color. And then I have my big "reveal".
I also try to make sure I have something scented on. As I said the other day, I don't have any perfumes right now. But, even if I get scented body wash and lotions from a bath and body store, it makes it more special. Smell is the most powerful memory making sense we have. I love to be able to connect a certain scent with a special occasion. Then, every time I smell the scent it brings back good memories of the fun we've had.
I kind of wanted to wait until I was done taking my medication before we planned an overnight date. I'm not really comfortable drinking alcohol while I'm taking it and I still have a little over a month left. But MAN could I use a date night right now. . . . . . as in this very minute! My hubby just asked me today if I wanted to go see one of his favorite comedians with him next month. Maybe I'll just take that chance to get an overnight babysitter and we can have a full-blown date night.
How often are you able to have date nights with your hubby?
