This fun little date dress is one I ordered off Rent The Runway which I am a HUGE fan of, if you haven’t checked it out you totally have too!
Brian and I have been married for 5 years and been together 6 so we have done our fair share of date nights and vacations especially before having a baby.
Reece is now 3 and we still try, not always but try to get one date in a week.
When you have kids it is so easy to be consumed by them and only be focused on T Ball games, potty training and what not. Having a 3 year old has been much more difficult than 2 but we roll with punches haha.
We love to get dressed up, go to dinner and have a few glasses of wine and have the house to ourselves with no kids needing this or that and no one ending up in our bed lol.
We are so incredibly lucky because we have Brian’s Mom and Dad right around the corner and they love to keep Reece over night. He loves it too so I have minimal mom guilt thank God. That is a whole other post because mom guilt is cripplingly real.
It’s so important to be a great mom but it’s equally important to be a great spouse and have together time. I am a very firm believer in I can’t be the best mom, wife, or myself if I don’t have any type of balance in my life and don’t feel good about myself or am unhappy.
This is definitely the case because Brian travels so much so balancing is crucial. Couples need their time together to reconnect.
If you don’t have family around then find a great sitter that you trust or friend so you can have some time with your spouse.
The struggle is real trying to juggle every aspect of my life and I can’t be 100% in all areas all the time so I just breath and try my best. No one can be ON all the time at everything and if they tell you they are they are LYING!
Don’t get caught up in how Jane Doe’s life seems so perfect and well balanced all the time because it never is. Every family and every marriage has a different dynamic and you find what works for you.
A super fun tip though if you are just at home and can’t really get out pour some wine and play The Couples Game. You can download the App on your phone and there is tons of versions of it!
