Girl’s Night Out!

We had an amazing time last night. It’s funny, ODD, loves DS to pieces and always wants him to go with us and hang out with him, etc, but I think we both needed the time for just the two of us last night. We really reconnected. Monkey celebrated an important milestone, so it was time for a girl’s night out!

We hopped in the car, she had no idea where we were going or what we were doing. I kept it all a surprise.

When we went into The Bonton she thought we were just cutting through to get to the mall until I had her sit down. See how excited she was?

Here is her before shot…

The Clinique lady showed her how to apply basic makeup. She kept it very light and natural as I don’t allow DD to wear a lot of makeup, basically brown mascara and pale lipstick/gloss.

She did a light powder, blush, eyeshadow, and gloss. It looked really nice on her and just gave her a lovely glow without looking “done up”. I decided to get her each piece that she used and DD about freaked she was so excited. I told her, “With great power comes great responsibility.” ;D
Isn’t she lovely?

Then it was off to Red Lobster

Things got a bit silly at this point. How’s the food Elizabeth?

It’s terrible! (not really)

Then we went to see Marley & Me and bawled our eyes out. We had the theater to ourselves, accept for the two horny teenagers in the back corner that Monkey and I kept picking on. We drove home and fell into bed at 12:30. So, this morning I told her to go back to bed and stay home today. We had an important power snuggle meeting.
