Getting Fancy

It all started with a book. A book Will and I checked out on a summer afternoon trip to the library.

And this book turned into a great idea.

There would be cooking. And baking. And house cleaning. And SHOWERING. And makeup. And a little black dress. And fancy shoes. And candles that make our home glow.

There would be red toenails!

And come 5:30, Will and I were ready to surprise Daddy.

For dinner: a homemade chicken pot pie.

We even ate in the dining room. On a real, live tablecloth.

The last time Will ate in the dining room? Christmas Day. Which, evidently, was the ONLY other time Will has eaten in the dining room.

For dessert: a vanilla cheesecake garnished with strawberries.

I'm not a mom that has it all together. But sometimes it's fun to pretend.

Holy cow! What did Daddy say??? Your pictures are gorgeous. And so are you. And by the way, we have the same green striped bib. :)

THANKS!!! Will and I were ready for Daddy at 5:30, but he didn't come home until 6:30. Which left lots of time for taking pictures with the timer. :) OH! And Mike was pretty happy with his surprise.

You eat cheese cake? You drink red wine? You own red-ish lipstick/gloss? The things you learn on this blog....
