During the last couple months of Jamie’s deployment we talked nonstop about all of the things we couldn’t wait to do together once he got home – local restaurants to try, belated special occasions to celebrate, and more planned date nights. We’ve admittedly been very gun shy in the past about nailing down a trusted babysitter, but we decided that finding one we loved was a top priority so that we could start enjoying more frequent nights out on a whim without the girls.
After (very) recently meeting a babysitter that I adored, Jamie and I decided to treat ourselves to the biggest splurge on our date night wish list – a dinner date to Harry’s, which is a locally-owned, unique, upscale restaurant in the heart of downtown Manhattan.
Since Jamie is on his two-week block leave and we’re flexible, we let the babysitter pick which night worked best for her and asked her to come over right around the girls’ bedtime. Once she arrived Jamie and I put finishing touches on our date night looks and headed downtown.
We had an 8 o’clock reservation and enjoyed wining and dining for two straight hours that was completely uninterrupted by our precious babies. 🙂
We clinked our glasses and cheered to our 28th birthdays, our fifth wedding anniversary, securing a company command slot, exciting blog endeavors, our potty-trained toddler, and a beautiful, healthy blue-eyed new family addition.
We got home a little after 10 p.m., paid the sitter, kissed our sleeping babies, and called it a (fabulous) night.
David’s Bridal Cocktail Dress
David’s Bridal recently reached out and invited me to explore their extensive line of dresses, and I was thrilled at their spectacular timing since I was currently on the hunt for the perfect dress for our date night. I previously had no idea that they’d expanded their designer lines and carried such stunning dresses for a night out on the town.
I fell in love with this dress the moment I saw it online and rushed to the nearest store to try it on. I’ve always been a sucker for a subtle sweetheart neckline (hence my wedding dress if you remember), and the blush pink material paired with the pewter beading made me swoon. To carry my cell phone, lip stick, and ID, I decided to mix my metals and went with the most perfect gold clutch (also from David’s Bridal). I was so happy with how this look came together.
Until recently I had never considered David’s Bridal as an option for my special-occasion needs simply because I wasn’t aware of all that they now offer. Not only do they still continue to dress one in every three brides nationwide, but their extensive lines of dresses for military balls, proms, date nights, award ceremonies, and more is something for every girl to keep in mind. We’re talking shoes, handbags, undergarments, jewelry, hair pieces, lingerie, and so much more! PS: They carry sizes 0-30 and 14W-26W.
David’s Bridal, I’m quite impressed with you.
Here are five cocktail dresses that I’m still gawking over.
There’s a military ball in the works for the end of the year, and I am laser-focused on wearing one of these stunners.

Hi! I’m a proud Army wife and mom to two little girls (ages 1 and 4), and I love sharing our lives with you. I blog all about motherhood, our time in the military, our travels, our meals, my fitness journey, my fashion favorites, and so much more. I truly enjoy sharing it all! I can’t get enough of birthday cake ice cream, weekend sunrise runs, or making my girls belly-laugh. I write almost daily about my family’s lives, and though I like to keep things light, I also share the messy parts too. Welcome! So glad to have you around. I’m active on Facebook and Instagram and would love to communicate with you there!
