D is for Dates

Hello everyone!  Thanks to all of you new friends who have stopped by to say hello.  I can't wait to visit your blogs as well.  This blog challenge is so much fun.  I am so happy I signed up to do it. 

Today for the letter D, we are talking about dates.  
This evening, I had a date with my girl.  There was a theater company putting on a Fancy Nancy musical at our local performing arts center.  When I saw the e-mail about the show, I knew we had a date.  I bought tickets right then and kept it a secret.  It was a secret until the flyer advertising it came home from school.  Woops!  She was so excited!  I was too.

My class had our Easter party and egg hunt this morning at the park.  I kept Darbee with me and she went too.  Thankfully, the weather held off and we were able to have it.  As soon as it was over, Darbee started asking when we could go.  It didn't start until 7:00.  We had a ways to go.  :)

Finally, the time came to get ready.  They were having a costume contest before the show.  She saw that on the flyer and wanted to dress up.  Thankfully, we have a TON of dress up clothes and we were able to put together an outfit that looked a lot like Fancy Nancy.

This was the look we were going for.

We had the pink tutu and the purple sparkly shirt.  I didn't have any plaid ribbon but we made do with white.  We even had glasses pretty similar to Fancy Nancy's!  We added some fancy rings and bracelets and a fancy necklace and were set.  I put her hair in pigtails and made them into buns and tied purple ribbons in her hair.  She wanted a feather boa like the one Nancy wears in some of her books but we didn't have one of those.

I think we did pretty good though.

She even had a cute zebra jacket to match because it was a little chilly.  

It was packed!  

And guess what??  When we got there, they were selling Fancy Nancy boas!  Guess who got one? 
Yup..her outfit was complete.

We found our seat and couldn't wait for the show!

It was time for the costume contest!  All of the little girls got to have their time to walk across the stage in front of the audience and judges.  We ran into a friend and she and Darbee walked across together.  It was so cute!

Here's my girl all ready for the show!  The boa was a little itchy so it came off.  :)

The show was fabulous.  It was so cute and we had a great time.

I love dates with my girl.  

I can't finish this post without mentioning the dentist.  Darbee had a dentist appointment yesterday.  Ugh!  I don't like it when she has to have work done but she did GREAT!

She is cavity free!  Hip Hip Horray!

Cuddles makes it all better.  She was such a good girl!

That's all for today! 

I hope all of you have had a great day.

Until next time....


  1. Your little one is so cute all dressed up! Sounded like a fun time the two of you had with your date! Good check up too at the dentist! I think these days the dentists try to make it "fun" to go and a good experience for kids so they want to take care of their teeth :)
