Tonight Tom and I went on an honest to goodness date. I can't even remember the last time we did that. Since before we bought the house, for sure. We went to a Hershey Bears hockey game, ate bad pizza and nachos, cheered for every power play and never once discussed paint colors or door knobs or what we need to buy on our next trip to Lowes. Then we came home to eat cookies and milk while we crashed on the couch to watch Mad Men. Perfection.

I've been lusting after that dress since I saw it on the cover of the U.O. catalog, and you wear it better than the model! That beret is perfect. Not to mention the photos, which are really stunning. Really.

Oh, how lovely to go on a proper date. I have that dress too, but I suspect you look better in it than I ever could. Now I just need a handsome, charming chap to go on a date in it with...
