1960's Date

I found myself in the cutest little vintage store the other day looking at home decor items, and before I knew it I was trying on this little number. I loved the boat neck with the side tie, and the extended sleeves. Most dresses are too short for me, so I love it when I find a short one that isn't too short. I mean come on, we all want to show a little leg every once and a while, but not the whole kit and caboodle:)

Basically, this dress inspired me to plan a great big 1960's themed date with my guy. I made Craig an invitation that said "Hey cool cat, are you ready for a groovy time? Pick me up tonight at 7:00" I wore the dress...or course, and tried really hard to do my hair big, but I just couldn't get it to stay :( Where is aqua net when you need it!?! We went to a diner for some good grub, and made a swift return home to relieve the baby sitters (thanks Kim and Jeff). I google searched "60's recipes" and found a yummy fruit dip one. I also picked up some old fashioned coke bottles, popcorn buckets, and some other oldish snacks for our movie. We watched the original "yours, mine, and ours". I thought is was cute, but it was a little too slow for Craig. After the movie we did a little dancing to some hits from the 60's, which of course led to....ya know, good times;).

Annnnnyyywaaayyy, it's always so much fun to change things up, and keep them exciting. We still stuck with the regular dinner and a movie date night thing, but with a little flare. Our next theme date is already in the works, so you'll have to stay tuned to hear all about it...well, maybe not allllll about it:)
