A Much Needed Evening

My BF and I went out to Dinner last night and had an awesome time! Originally, Mike was going to be painting our NEW bathroom before it was finished and things got moved in. But the walls weren't completely ready yet to be painted so they went to TNT for Family Night. They had Taco Bell for dinner and then, jumped the night away. I needed to find a dress for a wedding in two weeks and a new pair of shorts for the warmer temps coming up. Well, I found both! Robin helped me pick out a ton of adorable dresses (mostly baby doll style) that I tried on and she, SO graciously offered her honest advice and put dress after dress back on the rack. We did manage to find a couple that we liked though...

This is the one that I bought for the wedding
And this is the one SHE bought for me!!
Since I was getting the shorts, I needed to be thrifty and decided to get only one of the dresses. After I paid, the person at the register handed me another bag and told me she had got this for me! What a sweet friend! I'm wearing this one today, with a cute white crinkle blouse over top...can't wait. I came home and modeled all my new clothes for Mike and was so excited. They just don't make sexy clothing for pregnant women, but I'm pretty pleased. I want to look good for the wedding. My dad is babysitting and I have a date with my hubby! (We could use it...LOL....We've been getting on each other's nerves lately, staying busy at home.) We're both "Home Improvement Junkies" and just can't stop lately!!
So, today's post is all about my best friend. It's been crazy lately and we've all been tied up. I've been getting nervous about getting things done before the baby comes, emotional since I cried at a country music song today while in the Car Pool Line at Hunter's school and tired of not having all the energy I'm used to. She really made my day and made me realize we ALL need a little time away sometimes. Mike is going out with my brother and HIS best friend to Dinner tonite since they could all use a little stress reliever. I'm happy they'll have a night out and looking forward to the evening with my little man.
Hunter has an imaginary friend now. (actually not so imaginary, in a way) His "special friend" is Darby from "Tiger and Pooh". He watches her in the mornings on the Disney Channel and I think he has a crush on her. Well, she's been by his side all afternoon and he's happy as he can be. How sweet! He's really growing up and I love his kind spirit. He truly cares about people and I love to watch him play!
We're almost finished our work at home. We still need to go through a couple boxes, drop a ton of stuff off at the Thrift Store, paint our Computer Desk and our old bathroom, then REST. Sometime this week or weekend, Hunter and I are going to plant some flowers and we're picking up two truck loads of mulch for our flower beds. I LOVE Spring!!
(Hunter loves to help me in the yard too and help me water all the flowers. I hope he has a love for Gardening like I do!)
We're getting some Family/Maternity pictures done at the beach in May, as well as going camping for Mother's Day. It'll be nice to have some things to look forward to after all the hard work. I'll try to update more tonite. I've been told by about five people my blogging is slowing down and I need to get busy. More pictures to come!! Thanks for the interst!
I hope everyone has a happy Hump Day! Enjoy your friends and tell them what they mean to you. Mine made my day:)

Beautiful dresses! It sounds like you are very lucky to have such a good best friend! Enjoy your "date night." It's nice to have nights without your guy to do your own thing, alone or with friends. I find they help me to really appreciate the time we have together.
