A reason for a little black dress…
Have a seat because I am about to blow your mind.
Yesterday I was shocked by my husband. Our anniversary is Monday so we are going to celebrate it tomorrow night. There is a band playing tomorrow night, Mindset Defect, and I had mentioned to B that we should go see them again and maybe go get a bite to eat before. Now when there is dinner involved our conversation usually goes something like this: Me: Where do yo want to eat? B: I don’t know, where do you want to eat? This gets repeated at least 10 times until we both surrender and we go to one of our default restaurants. Yesterday I received an email from B with a link to a restaurant website asking what I thought about it. What! Did he just research places to eat and suggest something totally different? Yes, yes he did. He suggested The Standard at the Smith House. I have never heard of this place before so I clicked the link and checked it out.
“The Smith House is Nashville’s only remaining grand townhouse from the 1840’s era still standing. It has a rich history and continues to be an integral part of the life in downtown Nashville.”

How fancy! I’m impressed..completely impressed. Then he called and asked what time the show started because he was going to make reservations. You read that correctly…HE was going to make reservations. People, this doesn’t happen. It’s usually “why don’t you call make us reservations”…meaning me call. I soon received an email that he forwarded to me confirming our reservations for Friday night at 7. Wow. I just about fell out of my chair. I checked his head when he got home last night. 😉
So now my dilemma, what to wear. A cute little cocktail dress would be completely appropriate for this restaurant but where the dilemma really falls is that yes we are going to fancy restaurant for dinner but right afterwards we head to a concert..a hard rock concert. So how to dress the part for both? I think I will go the cocktail dress route because it is fun and I never have a reason to wear a sexy little black dress. And this means…drum roll please!…I have to go shopping! Darn it! 😉 I have a couple of cute little dresses but they are old..seriously over 5 years old. I need a new one.
So with that, I will take my butt to my room to get ready to go….Shopping!
Hi ho hi ho..it’s off to shop I go..going to have some fun and buy a dress..hi ho hi ho hi ho
