I'ma Purdy Girl


So for Kevin's birthday he asked to go out for seafood. Asking around work I decided to take him to Streetside Seafood in Birmingham, MI. And oh my, it was amazing. We started with drinks at the bar while waiting for our table, and they were delicious, I just told the bartender to make me a fun drink so I don't even know what it was :) It tasted a little like root beer. Then we sat down scarfed down some amazing bread, had a shrimp appetizer then awaited the main course. Kevin had the special, pan seared Yellow Tail Jack, and I had Crab topped Whitefish.... mmmmm.... I miss the taste. It was incredible. And I rarely eat seafood. I actually never ate fish unless I caught it until a couple years into Kev and my relationship (cause he loves fish, and was a fish monger). To end it we split dutch apple pie, kevin's fav. I can say I was full but I didn't feel grossly overstuffed. We came home then and fell into a food coma right when we hit the couch.

Good night had by us.

Oh this outfit, I've had the dress since the summer, it's a beautiful vintage piece I found with Jen. I've wore part of the dress on the blog, it's so silky and comfy. I wanted to go for neutrals with a pop of color. The only annoying thing is I hadn't worn those heels in a while and with tights my feet were sliding in them. I have super narrow feet so anything on the last hole in the buckle is usually still too big. Also heels make me taller than Kevin and most people, I'm a giant in heels. Sometimes I wish I was short, then I'd wear heels all the time... Oh well. I like the outfit, and what's this? I'm wearing makeup!!! Wowzers. That's rare. If I wear any it's usually just mascara and maybe eyeliner. I did a side bun with a french roll (not sure what it's called) around my head. I've been doing that a lot because I'm growing out my bangs. And do you see that! Kevin's mustache is MIA, I need to find it!

I did notice that "something" was different. I've really been liking your hair lately and you've managed to make the make-up look very natural. Beautiful scarf.

You look adorable! I love the contrast of the light dress with the black tights.

Hope you had a great night, it certainly sounds like you did! That drink sounds great!

Sounds like a nice night out! I'm very curious about this root beer cocktail haha

And when I first saw the photos of Kevin, I thought, wait a minute, where's her fiance? ;)
