Date Night for Momma

With a new baby in our lives, moments when we are baby-free and can have time to ourselves barely exist. Every single second of free time that we have (which is hardly any), we use it to do housework, eat, or sleep. So when my parents encouraged us to go to dinner while they babysat for us... we took the opportunity!


{Dress: c/o C.C. Lake, Shoes: Forever 21, Wallet/Clutch: Marc Jacobs, Belt: Target, Necklace: Bauble Bar (old), Bracelets: Alex and Ani}

This dress from C.C. Lake was perfect for our date night. It came with a beige belt but of course I accessorized with a hot pink belt and necklace to add in my own twist. Their dresses are just perfect for date nights! 

And obviously the entire time we were out to dinner, we talked about the baby and how we couldn't wait to be back with her. Oh the irony.

How nice that you got a night out. It's so important to take time for you, even though you miss your little one the whole time! You look gorgeous. I love that dress. The color is so pretty on you and I love the pop of hot pink!

My mother does that for my brothers and their children. Mostly the ones that live in the same city as us. It took awhile for her to be able to watch my youngest niece by herself.

My niece at first would cry if her mother wasn't there, then her father, but she trusts my mom enough to take care of her. My oldest niece was the total opposite, she trusted everyone.

Hahaha...Yi-chia. I totally understand. When my hubby and I go out (very rare), we make it an effort not to talk about the kids 100% of the time:D
And your dress looks sooooo cute:)

Date nights are soooooo important--especially with kiddos! I hope you guys enjoyed yourselves. Having so little opportunity to spend time together really makes you appreciate it when you have it. You look so pretty in this dress!

I love CC Lake and this dress is beautiful on you. I remember those nights of getting away only to hurry home, it'll get easier.

Rebecca and Lori said...

You look fantastic! I'm so glad that you got to have a date night. It is funny how quickly you miss your little one, though, isn't it?!

I'm glad you listened to your parents, date nights are important. I think our anniversary was our first evening away from our daughter--so she was about 4.5 months old. She cried the whole time. :)

PS - you looked lovely for the date, more like a newlywed than a mom.

Pretty dress and good call for switching out the beige belt with a more colorful one. :-)

I just love that beautiful turquoise dress on you. I'm also so glad you added that pink belt , it is such a sweet accent and the whole outfit is so lively and fun. I understand how you feel being so tired and having such a little baby, but you look gorgeous and they certainly grow up fast. Sending hugs, Elle
