Catch-up Post #2...or a Trip to Five Guys and Target!

Rex has been showing signs of being jealous of how much time I have to devote to CW (still nursing, after all), so I know I have to find sometime to being with him alone. That is when Mr. Dina and I come up with having a "date" with our kids. ;) I know some of you all out there have done this...

July 3rd, 2009--Date with Rex. Tired, so I beg Mr. Dina to come on date with me and Rex and to bring his date CW. We "double-date" at Five Guys. Mmm...Five Guys...(btw, I grew up ONE block from the original Five Guys in Arlington, it opened its doors one year after we moved there)!

Mr. Dina then drops me and my date (Rex) at Target where Rex and I have fun. Or, in my mommy world, Rex walks me to whatever he wants to do and as long as he isn't ravaging the place, I let him go. Rex has a blast...we even find him some awesome Bumblebee (as in the Transformer) shoes.

Later on Mr. Dina and CW come find us (they had a date to Babies R Us) and all is good in the world. P.S. I am still tired, so I am glad Mr. Dina and CW came with us!


Here is the polyvore of the outfit I wore out with Rex. If you have any questions about the clothes themselves, go ahead and ask in the comments...I promise I will get to answering them!


Here is the outfit on. I felt young. Not young enough to look like Rex's sister, but maybe a young mom or aunt (no one has to know how old I really am)...


Another view, but what the heck is up with my right leg? Where did it go? I would have only used this pic by itself but I was so put off by my missing foot that I couldn't let it go. I think this compulsion I have is weird and I need to get over it, but still...it looks bizarre!

Don't forget, by the way, socks giveaway ends in less than six hours!

What a fun post Dina. You made me smile through your shopping 'double date' story. :) And the outfit you wore looked terrific. I finally caved and brought the real cluster necklace after seeing it on you in NY and it finally went on sale. I have the F21 version but the real thing still looks the best IMO. :)

Dina: I love the "date trips" with your kids...what a great idea to make sure they get one on one time with the rents...and on another note, you are seriously SKINNY!!! Do you have a secret? IF so, please share. I love the outfit you look great:)

WOW--this bright yellow color is BEAUTIFUL on you! And you have lost some more weight, I can tell! You are looking great, girl! I love that you have "dates" with your kids. So cute...my parents used to do that with my bro and I.

I was just going to post how THIN you look and see that others noticed too! Well done! The yellow is stunning on you.

Drewablank said...

Just a quick note (still a bit in the middle of a sorting-out mode)...I love the look, Dina! And you are definitely looking slim and rockin'! :) I miss you!

I have only recently discovered mFive Guys( we have one just next door to my house) and I am hooked. Their burgers are really amazing ( sorry , I know it might sounds disgusting to some vegs out there, but I am abig meat eater).:)))

Dina- I love how you paired utra feminine tops (with lace and pearls) and cargo pants ( delishious rolled up_ and chunky heels. Perfection!

Good idea about "dates". My son feels like a King of the World right now, I am sure he does not
realize how much time little babies take, so we have to be very careful around him.

Christina said...

Love the outfit. Super cute.

Kat said...

OK so I totally ran off and ordered the shoes you are wearing after seeing this post! (which, by the way, you look fab) Do you like them? They look SO cute on! I can't wait to get them! And how much do you heart that yellow v-neck? I have the same one and LOVE it!
