...compliments of her DADDY. I have yet to master the art of the pigtail braids, yet somehow he has.
I shouldn't be too surprised. The man crocheted me a king-size afghan blanket for our first date anniversary, after all. Gender-stereotypes went out the window long ago.
These pics were Sunday evening, right before a pizza date with Josh, Jami and the kiddos. We had a great time, but these weren't the outfits I was hoping to share with you this week.
Friday night was our fifth wedding anniversary. We had an extra special night planned -- a dinner at an exclusive LA restaurant, and our first overnight away from Em. She was to stay at my in-laws' while Brent and I redeemed the gift certificate we won for a local boutique hotel.
Thursday evening, however, I felt hints of sickness. By the time I hit the sack, a few hours earlier than normal, I was a mess of chills and fever. I hoped I'd awake feeling better, but come Friday afternoon it was clear I had to cancel our celebration. I couldn't muster the energy to celebrate, and I certainly had no appetite for the decadent meal we had planned.
Instead of the perfect dress I bought for our big night out to go with the perfect shoes I already had, I spent the weekend in my Maroon 5 fan club t-shirt and the stretchy black pants I wore home from the hospital after we had Em. (What? They're COMFORTABLE, y'all!)
I finally started to feel more like myself by Saturday evening, but that was no guarantee so it's not as though we could simply postpone dinner and the hotel by one night. We'll celebrate in style soon, though!
