This weekend hubby and I had the pleasure of seeing his youngest brother tie the knot with his breathtaking new bride and officially welcome her into the family fold. If that wasn’t exciting enough in itself we also had the rare treat of overnight babysitters for our three little monkeys, so we had a chance to really kick up our heels and let our hair down. (A chance, I might add, which I only grabbed at with one hand on account of the bottomless glass of champagne in the other!)
So for one whole glorious day I ditched my old faithful skinny jeans and donned a glamorous black dress and gave my uggs the boot in favour of a killer pair of heels. A spray-tan, a trip to the hairdressers and some super-sparkly bling and I was feeling a million bucks. What a delight it was to smell of perfume instead of eau de wet-wipe and not have to sniff around little nappy adorned bottoms to find the culprit of a bad smell. I even got to have conversations with other adults without getting mid-way through and completely losing my train of thought – well, until the champagne kicked in anyway! For one whole wonderful day hubby and I had an opportunity to enjoy each others company and strengthen the bond which made us bring our beautiful little family into the world to begin with. Happy Days!
