When I was a little girl during the summer my brothers, cousins and I all went to "Tot Dances" at the Jersey Shore. After a day at the beach we all cleaned up and put on our party shoes then danced the chicken dance all night long. I will not tell you how many years it has been since my last Tot Dance but I will tell you that I still love to dress up and put on my party shoes!
So after a bad stomach bug last week (forgive me for missing Friday but I needed a sick day!) I was more than happy to dress up for my Hubby's company dinner this weekend. While I do get nervous about going each year I love putting faces to the names. I hear names every night at the dinner table but it means more to me when I have a picture in my mind.
The food and drink were just above and beyond! Hubby and I had a lovely night. And the most wonderful part was that my sweet in-laws let us make an overnight of it. I can not tell you how nice it is to escape for a bit, even just a night.
When we headed home we stopped at Clyde's for brunch, which happens to be one of my most favorite meals out. We might not have been dancing the night away at the Shore but any night away with my Hubby is a reason to put on my party shoes!
