During the first few years of marriage my husband and I had a hard time trying to schedule date nights, mostly due to our family’s schedules, our jobs, or just not having a sitter. Over recent years though we’ve really made an effort to spend time alone when we can, and our marriage is better than ever as a result! Most of our time together is spent at home but whenever possible we go out to dinner on a date night. I love to put on a cute outfit including a fabulous pair of shoes, and polish it off with an amazing scent. Recently I headed to Macys on my lunch break and picked up a pretty pair of sandals to wear on our date night.
We are typical Socal people so a good pair of jeans is a must, but the shoes will make the ultimate statement, so the perfect pair of wedges was all I needed to make the night. Well, that plus a killer fragrance to cast the spell on my beloved (hee hee). On a typical day I wear a light fruity spray scent, but on date night, I kick it up a few notches and apply the delicious euphoria Calvin Klein. Mmmm smells amazing, and the hubs loves it!
On our date night we headed to our fave new Mexican restaurant and shared chips with the best avocado salsa ever. So good that we even asked the waitress for the recipe. She skipped like 3 ingredients, probably so we don’t attempt to make it at home and stop coming back. It totally worked! We go there all the time 🙂 I ordered the worlds most perfect chicken enchiladas dish to go along with it.
We always have the best conversations on our date nights. Sure we talk about the kids, their sports, our jobs, and the typical ‘parent talk’, but we also talk about US; our marriage over the years, how far we’ve come, and what we plan for the future. Although we are never gone too long, we always get so much out of our time alone. I’m always reminded of just why I fell in love with him 12 years ago, and why I will love him forever! He always makes it a point to compliment my outfit (yes, even when it’s just jeans), and tell me that I am beautiful and that I smell good (thanks euphora Calvin Klein). We walked through the shops near the restaurant after dinner, and then headed straight home to wrap up the night in front of the TV catching up on our shows. It was all in all– perfect!
It’s so easy to get too busy to nurture your relationship. As Mothers we give so much to others, that we forget that we are also women! Even just a new pair of shoes and a delicious fragrance on a fun date night with our love is all the pampering we need.
Mother’s Day is tomorrow, don’t forget to stop by Macys and pick up a bottle of euphora Calvin Klein for the Mom in your life, and take home a complimentary orchid! Hurry, the promotion ends tomorrow!
Happy Mother’s Day!
