Last weekend my husband and I had one of our first date nights in years (yes, years). Honestly, I believe the last one may have been when I was pregnant with Miss V so almost 2 years ago. Yes, it was very much overdue.
I’m typically a stay-at-home with a good bottle(s) of wine and Law & Order marathon type of girl, but I must say it was fun to get all dolled up for a night out without the kiddos! Events by ETOSH presented Bowties and Heels: A Cocktail Affair so, of course I had to get dolled up, right? I even put on eye make-up – that’s a huge deal for this diva who usually keeps the make-up to the bare (and I mean bare!) minimum. The shoes were courtesy of my BFF because anything over 2 inches – and that’s pushing it! – is nowhere near my closet!
I came across an article in Woman’s Day that made me say “ah-ha!” – often married couples are given the advice to keep date nights going on but it’s, also, key to keep those date nights interesting, new and exciting. Going to the same restaurant every other weekend will get just as old as staying in after a while. Planning new and out-of-the-box outings can help with communication and spontaneity.
Many thanks to E’Toshia and the Events by ETOSH team for putting on a fantastic event!
