We're actually going out tonight. On a grown-up night out. I'm going to get fancy and everything! That's right, fancy, as in I might be wearing a sparkly top/dress and HEELS (heels, when I'm not at work ...shocking). I may even go absolutely wild and crazy and wear lipstick.
Don't get me wrong. Rob and I have had plenty of date nights since Lucy has been born. We're lucky enough to have my mother who will basically watch Lucy at the drop of a hat. She's actually the one on the weekends who will always say "Hey, don't you two want to go to a movie, or dinner or something? ANYTHING? Yes? I'll be over in 5 minutes..." I feel incredibly lucky for this as I have girlfriends who have not gone out on a date or seen a movie in the theaters in months or even years because they don't have anyone to watch their children. We're so lucky to have that Nan Nan and don't I know it!
So, Nan is coming over tonight to watch Lucy and Rob and I are going downtown Portland with my best friend and her husband to go to a delicious little fondue restaurant/ martini bar. Not really anything wild and crazy, but I know we'll have a great time. Now I just need to find something smashing to wear. Remember, if you're home tonight at midnight (which I'm going to try to do so that we can ring in 2010 with my mom) open your doors and windows to let the old year out and the new year in!
What are your plans for NYE 2009 my dear readers?
Tomorrow, in honor of the New Year I'll be posting my resolutions for the upcoming year. Let me tell you, they're quite...ambitious. You're going to want to tune in for this one.
Happy New Year's Eve All! Have a fabulous (and safe) night! Cheers!
"Be always at war with your vices, at peace with your neighbors, and let each new year find you a better man."
