Our Big Night Out

Mike and I went to a wedding on Labor Day weekend. It was kind of a big deal because it was our first night away from Lincoln. He spent the night at his grammy’s house while Mike and I enjoyed some adult time away from our little guy.
We really went all out and stayed at a hotel. The wedding was about 45 minutes away so it was nice that we didn’t have to come home afterwards. The hotel was beautiful and it was fun feeling like we were on vacation for the night.
This was in the top three of fanciest weddings we’ve ever been too. The wedding was “black tie invited” which according to a Google search means black tie optional. I had a hard time figuring out a dress. I wanted to be fancy so I was looking for a long dress. This is a much harder task than I thought. There is not much selection out there. I finally lucked out by finding a dress online from Kohl’s for a grand total of $30 after a 30% off coupon and free shipping.
Turns out there was a wide range of dresses at the wedding. Someone actually wore a pencil skirt and sequined top and another lady wore a casual maxi dress. Then there were other ladies wearing long formal dresses. I was a good match for Mike’s new black suit and it was fun to get dressed up since there aren’t many occasions were we get to do it.
We had a blast out on our own but it was the best to see Lincoln again in the morning. He seemed to be excited too once we got home and immediately starting getting into all his favorite things like the shoes, the ottoman and the dog toys.
