saturday night, b and i had a date. a real date! with a babysitter! [jenna, who didn't really have to do anything as jack just slept the whole time. love having a baby with an early bedtime.] we got dressed up and went to a fancy MBA dinner followed by a jaunt to walgreens and a seinfeld rerun. really, it was quite fun and i think we should do it more often.
the little couple all dolled up:
can someone please explain to me why i weigh 15 lbs less than i did pre-pregnancy and yet my stomach still appears to be three months pregnant? unfair. this nursing thing is confusing.
here i am accomplishing new year's resolution #2 on the way out [sorry about the duck face but what can i say, i'm part of the myspace generation]:
what do you think? clownlike? i felt fancy, that's for sure. also i even brought a clutch, newly purchased on clearance at target, which i used for the evening. red lipstick AND a purse that fits in my hand? it's like i was ready to do the red carpet at the academy awards. [i expressed my excitement to b who said "a clutch? like for when you drive stick shift?"]
here we are with the davises, our favorite fellow MBA couple. for a long time alex was my only MBA-wives friend probably because we both didn't have kids [and because we're both awesome], but too bad for me she lives in slc and tries to avoid utah county at all costs. but now i have baby jack and she is pregnant with TWINS [hooray!] so i guess we should start hangin out with the moms.
the skirt of my sparkly dress was about three inches too short for the byu crowd. whoops. following the dinner, there were a few stand-up comedians for our entertainment -- including the guy who did the byu new spice video. i laughed a lot. then we left to send our babysitter home and put on our pj's. a great date night.
and while we are doing show and tell, here's a pic of jack all dressed up himself. he is getting so big! it's our half birthday on wednesday...where does the time go?
