One of my goals for this year is to put our marriage at the top of our priority list and go on more dates together! So far we’ve done pretty well with this. When we went to Melbourne Mom stayed with Kye after he went to bed and Zach and I enjoyed Olive Garden. This past weekend we took Kye to Mrs. Charlotte’s for the day and we drove to Jacksonville.
My main reason for going was to pick up my bridesmaids dress for my brother’s wedding but we decided to make a fun day-date out of it!!!
First we picked up my bridesmaid dress at David’s Bridal (which is a story within itself, I LOVE the dress but when I got it home and tried it on with my accessories the zipper un-zipped itself while I was zipping it up so I had to ship it back to them for them to fix it…praying it gets back in time!) then we went to St. Johns Town Center Mall (what a mouth full) and did some shopping!
We went to the big ToysRUs to look for some birthday gifts for Kye (totally unsuccessful there, online is SO much easier) then to Victoria’s Secret to get me a couple new bras! We hit up some other stores (found jewelry for my rehearsal dinner dress and found Kye some cute Gap clothes on sale) then enjoyed lunch at The Cheesecake Factory. It was SO GOOD as ALWAYS! They have my favorite meal there (crispy chicken costoletta). Since we’ve been doing so well with Weight Watchers I seriously only ate 1/3 of my meal. I just was STUFFED! Of course we still got dessert but we split it and I couldn’t even finish my half!
On our way home we stopped by the Carter’s outlet since it was Martin Luther King Jr weekend I knew they’d have a sale and they did! We got Kye several lounge clothes for the house for $3 each! Such a steal!
It was a very fun day just the two of us. It’s funny how we used to take car rides alone together for granted! Now I cherish them. We get to talk and sing along to OUR music and not have to worry about Kye crying or sleeping 🙂 It’s the little things that make a day great and this was one of the fun ones for sure. Zach and I don’t go shopping often (like most guys it’s not his favorite thing) but he is my favorite shopping partner!
