an evening out

Oct 6, 2015

"Date nights" are few and far between in this house. Or more like non-existent. Maybe one day I will get over my phobia of leaving my children, but having little babies in the house just doesn't bring about a settling feeling when being away. My mom is generally the only one we feel comfortable watching the kids, and well, she lives in Las Vegas. So basically she is a really expensive date night babysitter. With that being said, she does come to visit as often as she can. This year, if all goes as planned she will be here just in time for the military ball. I am not really one that gets all excited about the ball itself. I get more excited that Chris and I get to spend a little time together without being interrupted to wipe someones butt. We usually try and make a full night of it and give up the co-sleeping dwelling space for a hotel room. Will that happen this year? Only Odette can be the judge of that. 
Formal Dresses
one // two // three // four // five // six
seven // eight // nine // ten

Since this is mandatory fun for Chris, why not join in and have a great excuse to get dressed up? I mean, how many excuses does one have to pull out an evening dress and false lashes? Not many I am assuming. 

I always tell myself when shopping for a dress, to pick something I will want to wear again. This has not happened yet though. I love all the dresses I have worn, but I can't help but get excited to buy a new one. You can read about the last ball we went to right here, and I also found my dress from that post available here and short sleeve version here.

I have been toying with the idea of a super cute jumpsuit to wear. You guys know I looooove a good jumpsuit, so I have picked two that I really like, but I am not over the moon about white. So the search will continue. Chris isn't too sold on the jumpsuit thing but he has been married to me long enough to just smile and nod :)

Surprisingly, these are the ones I have narrowed it down to! Ha! The list was long, so give me your input. What are you liking? Do you have a go-to place for dresses? Or even a certain silhouette that you gravitate towards? Let a girl know!

  3. Not that I would be able to pull off a jumpsuit to a ball where everyone else is wearing gowns but of all people, I think you can!

    1. LOVE number six, if I can find it in black that is the winner for sure. I know a jumpsuit is a stretch for this kind of occasion, but that makes me want to go for it even more. LOL. We shall see.

  5. Okay so I really love 1,2 & 4, but when I look at all these styles, 3 looks the most like you. I'm not a huge fan of white either, only because it reminds me of a bridal show. I love any excuse to get dressed up!

  6. I would pick #9 for me - it's classic and looks forgiving, but I think you should DEFINITELY wear #7. It's bold, it's sexy, and let's face it, we aren't getting any younger. Wear the young, sexy dress now!

    Also, I'm against the jumpsuit idea. You look great in jumpsuits but how often do you get the chance to dress up like this? (ok, maybe yearly, but that doesn't help my point.) Plus, if it's the one night away with Chris, I like the sexy dress (another plug for #7) for a good dose of "whoa, honey, you look hot." (Of course you'd look hot in the jumpsuits too but that doesn't help my argument I'm trying to make)

  7. Wow these are all amazing! I agree a jumpsuit would be stellar but the white would frighten me a bit. Then again there won't be kids around so maybe???

  9. Loooving the ivory jumpsuit. Going to a wedding in PA next weekend and I might seriously have to get this jumpsuit! I think 2,3 adn 6 would look amazing on you. My two cents :)
