Getting Ready for a Hot Date?

Sadly this picture was NOT taken right before Tim and I rushed off to a lovely dinner date or a movie. And, stranger still, it’s not even a staged photo.

lookin' good

The driveway — perfect place for applying a few finishing touches.

An internet/cyber/homeschooling friend, Lisa, has convinced her talented children to develop a graphic for our Tuesday Tips for Parenting. I’m so excited to reveal it next week. Hooray!!

In order to finalize the design, Lisa’s daughter, Allison, requested some pictures of Tim and me. Joshua patiently agreed to be our photographer but we quickly realized Tim was a bit unshaven and it had been several hours since my make-up was fresh.

all freshened up

Don’t they clean up nice. :)

Finally we were picture-ready. I’m sure the neighbors were VERY intrigued with our front yard make-up session and photography shoot. We aim to keep them guessing. Obscure movie quote (this one is for my sister in law, Jenn):

‘For what do we live, but to make sport for our neighbors, and laugh at them in our turn?’

I was gone almost the ENTIRE day (no wonder my make-up needed a little freshening). Tim was a sweet heart and took care of the children while I went from one activity, errand and outing to the next. My night ended with a surprise birthday celebration for a friend while he got fish sticks and rowdy kiddos.

party on

Happy Birthday, Beckie!

Busy day.

  1. I love your fashion style, sweet Katherine. You look so pretty in the pictures- I’m glad you are getting IN them more often lately. I love you. Aunt Kate (you look good, too, Timothy)

  2. Wow! Mom’s night out… can’t wait until it’s my turn tomorrow night. Hope you had a great time! And I love the lacy white sweater… perfect for our Northwest nights.

  3. Thanks, Cindy. I do so poorly with moving photos off of the computer and into picture frames. :) They make it to the blog but that’s about it. I don’t think I have hardly any framed photos of dh and I. That’s just sad! :)

  4. Jenn – I’m glad you recognized the quote. Ha! Tim and I have several lines from the movie (or should I say the book) that we quote back and forth to each other. I don’t know if the folks will EVER watch the movie. We can always hope and dream. LOL!

  5. I don’t know about the film quote but my Scottish Gypsy grannie had a similar motto:

    ‘If you laugh at others’ troubles, it will help you bear your own.’


  6. I have no idea what movie the quote is from (LOL), but I’m sure your neighbors were wondering what you were doing with Tim shaving and you applying makeup all in front of the camera! TOO FUNNY!
