Date Night = Blessing

Today's blessing husband's sweet thoughtfulness. Really, this should be yesterday's blessing, but it was WAY too late to post last night, so here we are. Ty and I hadn't had a date night in... well, I can't remember our last date night, so that tells you how long. Anyway, all he told me was that I needed to dress up. Yay! I love dressing up, and it just so happens that I'd saved a nice dress when packing up my seldom used clothes for the move. Of course, I was crossing my fingers, hoping it would fit since not much else of mine does. Luckily, I squeezed into it, and felt great about it. So we get in the car to take the kids to our good friends, the Neely's, to watch them for our surprise date. When we get there, they're all dressed up too! Stacey's Mom (who is one of the bravest women I know) kept all 4 kids while we went out on the town. I was so surprised and delighted to have our friends come along! We hopped in the car and went downtown to Mi Cosina for dinner (yum), and then to the Bass Hall for a show. While I can't all together recommend the show we saw, I love going to the theater and haven't been in FOREVER, so I'm not complaining. The night ended way too soon (it was a Tuesday after all), but I'm so thankful that my husband knew I'd been dying to do something like this for a long time. We'll have very few chances for things like this pretty soon, so it was so sweet of him (and our friends) to work it into our busy schedule. What a blessing!
P.S. I know I probably broke the photographers' code, but I just couldn't see myself with my camera around my neck, so I didn't get any pics. Stacey's mom took one, so if it's good, I'll post if when I get it.
