Date Night with Lily

Lily and I went out for a date night a few weeks back.

Jason and I try to get the kids out for some one-on-one time every now and then...they love it.

And Lily is no exception!

Lily was so excited the entire day, agonizingly watching the clock tick slowly along.

We both did our hair fancy and got all dressed up to go out on the town.

It's the first time she's ever had her hair curled and being the girly-girl that she is, she drank it all in.

She loved all the pampering and all the comments from her siblings that followed.

And when Daddy got home and told her how pretty she was, well...the girl just about melted.

We went out to Tortes and Truffles for supper and some very fabulous and decadent desserts.

Our date ended with none other than a shopping trip. I asked her what she wanted to do and gave her a few ideas. The one and only thing...the activity at the tip-top of her list...shoe shopping.

And not just any shoes would do. Oh no. Not for this fashionista.

Hot pink, glitter from toe-to-heal, big ol' bow in the middle kind of shoes.

The smile on her face made it worth every dollar I spent. Good gracious, I love this girl.
