Last Saturday the hubby took me out to dinner to celebrate Mother's Day. He wanted to avoid the mad crowd in restaurants on the day itself. I decided to wear this dress. It is a maternity maxi dress so there was no way I could have worn it without a belt. Total dinner time - about 2 hours. The meal was awesome by the way! Good thing I wore a dress, the creme brule, would have been a button popper!
Since I only wore the dress for 2 hours (and didn't spill anything on it), I decided to wear it again yesterday to go grocery shopping. This white top is a maternity blouse. It was quite nice wearing these maternity clothes again without the bump (and the nausea and the penguin walk)! So the dress was worn for a total of 4 hours. It can now be thrown into my dark colors laundry pile.
I also tried to experiment with a recipe from the Food & Wine cookbook I received from American Express (for free)! Well not totally free, I paid $2.99 for shipping! The dish is called Chicken Sukiyaki and it can also be found here. It was actually good and healthy - low sodium and low fat. I would use regular soy sauce for a not so healthy option :)
