I also had dinner with Tracey. We have been meaning to catch up for ages but this week she had childcare so she put on a skirt, got the "Mommy you look pretty" comment from Amara, and we hit the town! Not really we just went to our local suburban downtown's swankiest bar and flirted with the bartender (and let him flirt with us more importantly). We had a great time! The food was fabulous and so were the drinks. We laughed, talked about men, kids, careers and men some more. We felt like we were in NYC...that was until we looked out the window and saw the big DSW sign. I suggested that they close the drapes for more of the NYC illusion. Instead, we just decided to turn our backs and have another drink! LOL
The night finally had to come to an end because Tracey's get out of jail card was going to expire, I mean she had to go pick up her beautiful loving daughter! :-) We laughed and said we must do this again soon and marveled that this time next year I'll be the one who will too be looking for babysitting because Baby I will be home! Nah...she'll be along for the ride! I won't want to let her out of my sight...it will be Sushi or Ethiopian for us (only places where kids are allowed)!
