Blake and I got all snazzed up last night to go out and celebrate his birthday. During the day, we hit up the Crossings to spend a few gift cards and birthday money that Blake got. He got this awesome tweed blazer at Ralph Lauren Polo.
Blake’s mom was nice enough to take Macy for the day, and it felt like a vacation to just have one child for the day. Plus, Avery is still so portable and easy going, that we really had a nice day.
Dress: J. Crew
Gold belt: J. Crew
Shoes: Anne Klein
Watch: Michael Kors (it’s hard to see, but I love this watch!)
Bad eye make-up: compliments of me. It was my first time trying liquid eyeliner and I had NO clue what I was doing. Any tips?
On the way to dinner, we stopped to pick up a
little HUGE gift for me- a new car!
We have been looking for awhile and yesterday we decided to make this big purchase. I am so excited! This is the nicest car I’ve ever had and it had a whopping 7 miles on it when we drove it off the lot! 🙂 My favorite part is the third row seating; it’s set up like a mini van. Now we can
have five kids fit more than just two carseats in the back. Wait- who’s birthday was it?!?
After we left the dealership, we headed out for dinner. Our options were limited since it was a Monday, so we went to Sycamore Grille. We had a nice dinner, including a delicious sweet sycamore salad (spinach, cranberries, crumbled blue cheese, pecans, and sliced pears, with a maple poppyseed dressing), crusty bread, and chicken and broccoli sachitini (sauteed chicken, broccoli, roasted peppers, served with cheese filled pasta bundles, finished with a roasted garlic cream sauce). And, of course, a glass of Pinot.
It was a wonderful day spent with a wonderful man.
