A Strange Thing Happened This Weekend...


I'm glad I took pictures because I definitely would have thought it was a dream, but on Saturday, Dom and I actually had a date night!  Not the wine and couch kind either, the actual get all dressed up and go to dinner kind.  These days it takes a lot of planning and a small miracle to make it happen, and I'm so glad it did!

Saturday was technically LECOM's LE-Prom that we had been going back and forth on going to.  I wanted to go because I wanted an excuse to get dressed up and get out of Hunker, but Dom was hesitant because going with a huge group would mean lots of money, time, and drinks, meaning Sunday would be useless.  Since we're both about to start finals we need to be as functional as possible!  So I requested the night off from work anyways, and we got all dressed up and went to a fancy restaurant in Greensburg...just the two of us. :)

I had planned a cute black dress, tights and black booties number, but discovered soon before we had to go that I managed to lose all my tights in the move!  I had none!  Let me tell you, going bare legged (a word?) when it's 28 degrees is no bueno.  But, I really have no nice cold weather date outfits so it had to do!
No, you are not hallucinating.  That is in fact me, Robin, wearing an animal print.  While it is still so not me, I decided to try it out in scarf form, because I think it is possible to not look tacky if it's only a little.  I'm still very anti-animal print...but I'm trying!

Once we I got over the freezing cold, we arrived at the restaurant and had the best dinner!  My autumn spice martini went perfectly with my apple glazed pork chops, and Dom's steak was amazing too!  'Round these parts people think that Olive Garden is really fancy, so finding an actual nice restaurant with great food is an accomplishment!


I can't tell you how nice it was to be able to sit with Dom and just talk about whatever.  With his new schedule he is home a lot more which I love, but one of us is always studying or I'm at work, so we don't have a lot of quality time together to reconnect and just have fun.  This night made me extra excited to get a whole week of vacation with him in 3 short weeks and to plan more of these nights!

  3. I'm anti animal print too! Which obviously makes me untrendy (which I AM) but whatever. A little touch is ok though, like the scarves. I've been thinking about ballet flats as a way to work it in, on the small scale...

  4. I just love how cute you two are! I'm still devastated you're in Hunker and not in Lawrence KS at KU Med...but someday I'll get over it ;)
    YAY vacation!! I don't remember if I've read this on your blog lately, but was Dom able to transfer schools in the coming year or no?
    PS I am so-so on animal print, but I have a pair of cheetah print flats I loooove and wear with jeans all the time. That's my only animal print LOL.

  6. Yay for a date night!!! I don't wear much animal print (I like leopard print flats though) but I think your scarf is just the right amount, you don't look tacky at all.

  9. I always thought once Freddie and I lived together we would spend so much time "together." I think we went out more and were able to talk more when we weren't living together! So fun that y'all got a special night.

  12. I don't go crazy with animal print either. I have one leopard-y shirt that is always UNDER a cardigan, and I have cheetah like flats too. You look gorgeous, as always though!

  14. What a fun weekend for y'all friend. You had the perfect amount of animal print on to look extra fabulous. I am going to need you to quit with the titles like this though because my heart starts beating really fast and I get really excited about what may lie in this little white box underneath it. One day..... :)
