So yeah, this dress is really a skirt I've owned for quite some time. I bought it with a baby blue sweater material tube top and I can't say I never wore it with fairy wings at some point in my life.  I've since donated the tube top and I don't see myself wearing this again as a skirt or a dress. It will be donated too.  It sort of bugged me all day, I sort of loved it and sort of hated it.   It was also way hotter than I thought it was to be today so my original outfit was modified mid-day when I nixed the tights.  The original sweater (shown) was too thick and despite the short sleeves it was smothering me.  

I spent my day working and had another effing key snafu.  Blargh.  I thought a cat client key I needed was on my ring but instead it was home on my key hook.  I had to come home and get it, something I hate to do, especially during rush hour on a Friday.  Stupid brain, stupid keys, stupid week.   I finally got done work, quite late for a Friday, and Michael and I headed out for a date night since we didn't get to hang out much during the week and I'm starting class three nights a week on Monday.  

We headed to Farmicia for dinner.  It was lovely.  We split a bottle of wine and an appetizer of Fiddlehead Ferns in an herbed butter/white truffle oil sauce. Divine.  So glad these little things were introduced to my palette.  Michael had some veggie tamales and I opted for a mushroom risotto croquette entree.  Both were tasty.  After dinner we walked about a mile to Beau Monde for dessert and cappuccinos.   We then waked back the way we came to the movie theater to see Exit Through the Gift Shop, a fabulous movie.  It was funny, interesting, thought provoking, etc.  We both really enjoyed it.  It was a lovely date night. I came home and caught up on these here blogs and it's now time for beddybye.
