Make Every Date Night Special

Jacket: Chico's
Tights: Lane Bryant
Clutch: Stien Mart

DATE NIGHT!!! After 27 years, my marriage is like everyone else…we have our ups and downs, our ins and outs!!

During those crazy parenting years when all three kids were home and we were running behind them, just trying to keep up, our date nights were few and far between. But, I am here to tell you that dating after marriage is really important. It keeps the sparks alive and the communication open. We are facing the “empty nest” syndrome just around the corner and we both have committed to fun and frolicking!!

I personally believe that, though you are going out with someone who has seen you are your worst, a wife should look fabulous for every date…it makes him feel special...oh, and of course, YOU TOO!

Bling on the Bottom!!

 This outfit was another “step-out-of-my-comfort-zone-moment.” When Mr. Bear said “Let’s eat sushi and see the movie Social Network,” I decided to try something new and wear this long jacket with fun tights! At first I was a little self conscious, but it quickly went away and I was fine, knowing that he loved the outfit and thought it was “hot.” On a date, that is what matters to me!

    We try to at least get out by ourselves for dinner every couple of weeks. It's nice to have that couple time.

  10. I agree Pam, you look great! Me and my T try to have a regular date night (or day). It's a way to really connect and work on your partnership.

  11. Pam, what a great outfit on you!! You look gorgeous! As you said, the best compliment is that your sweetie thinks you're HOT! What else do you need? Hugs! ~Serene

  12. You definitely look great. For sure.

    I am a big believer in romance in a marriage as well. I feel like the most beautiful woman because my husband pays special attention to me and tells me regularly how he feels. I think all women deserve to feel this way. Sounds like you have it as well. Yay, us!
