You guys, I have a DATE on Saturday night! An actual date! Dinner reservations- check. Dress to wear- check. Babysitter- CHECK! Husband- check. Whoo hoo! I'm so excited.
We going with a big group of "couple friends". Do you have any of those? You know... a girlfriend, that has a husband, that your husband likes, too? It's good to have 'couple friends', don't you think? It makes things so much more interesting. Not that my girlfriends aren't interesting enough- God bless you guys. I think any friend of mine is a good one for having to put up with me! And if they have a husband (or boyfriend) that will put up with me, too, then I'm in good shape.

Okay, back to the date. We have been planning this date night for....gosh, over a month. We old, parental people need lots of notice for such a big event. Remember the days when you wouldn't start even planning your night until about 9pm?

I like to prepare the week before to look pretty....because you know it takes more work to look pretty the older you get. I figure by the time I'm 50 I'll have to start preparations a month before a date. I can see it now: "No, honey, I cant go out with you next weekend...I need at least 14 more days to moisturize...". I try not to be a "pretty snob", either. I like my girl stuff but, if I find a good bargain, you can bet your underwear that I will use it instead of the expensive stuff.

Some of my favorite "pretty" things are Hawaiian Tropic tan in a bottle. I actually like this kind better than Jergen's. It doesn't stink as badly (you know that smell you reek of when you use this kind of product? Eww), and it seems to work quicker for us frighteningly pale gals that need a quick fix.

Mineral foundation. I'm not sure I love this yet. I like it, I can appreciate the idea behind it, a lot of my girlfriends swear by it, BUT...I don't think it's made for wrinkles. Remember I told you I have a few of those. This foundation kind of sits on the wrinkle, it doesn't "blend" as you would think a foundation would. At the same time, the stuff feels great on my face. I'm on the fence, but I'm giving the stuff a fair chance to win me over.

Lip Gloss! Now really, any lip gloss will do. If I'm feeling cheap, the ELF (eyes lips face) lip glosses are fabulous. If I'm feeling like my lips need a little TLC, then I use Almay's lip gloss.

A new thing for me is fake eyelashes. I have no idea how to use them, but I got some and am going to try them out this weekend. Don't laugh. Has anyone ever gone to the emergency room to remove a fake eyelash from their eyelid?

A good pair of shoes. Every woman loves a pair of shoes that makes her feel good, right? I have new shoes, and will be wearing them on date night. I haven't broken them in yet, so it should be an interesting night for my feet.

Check back for pictures of our date on a future blog!

Sounds so FUN!!! Oh, and I totally agree on the mineral foundation. I do like it, but it makes wrinkles that I didn't even know I had, appear (like the lines in my forehead, etc.). The stuff seems to accentuate them.

I am jealous, jealous, jealous! We had a steady couple in Scotland and have yet to find their equal after 18 months living here. Sniff!!

Have a great night, though!
