Momiform vs. Date Night Outfit

My daily routine could contain any number of potential activities. House projects or cleaning, playing with the kids or going on an adventure out of the house, teaching a class or manning a booth at an open house, out to dinner with friends or on a date with my husband.

You Don't Need a Babysitter to Have Date Night

All too often, I hear couples with kids say that they don't have date night very often for a number of different reasons. Some have young babies who can't be left with a sitter yet, others don't have room in their budget to go out and hire a sitter or family nearby who can watch their kids while they spend some time together.

Dressing Up for Date Night: The Perfect Valentine's Date Night Outfit

My favorite thing about this dress is the empire waist and the detail/slight ruching on the bodice and neckline. I love that this dress accents my bump and shows off my curves. I definitely don't feel like a pregnant blob when I'm wearing it, instead I feel womanly and gorgeous.
