Hungry and parking at the restaurant at 7:15 foolishly hoping for a short line and asking how long the wait is. Inevitably, we will have to wait a good while for a table and try to be happy about it. We generally eat around 5:30 or 6:00pm to avoid such a fiasco as Jake and I both get cranky when needing to be fed. However, plans on a Friday night don’t always go as perfectly as planned. Tips to speed up getting ready? I need a few and Jake will back me up here. What am currently working with to speed up my date night ready look are three simple steps. I try to have hair and makeup done by early afternoon so I am not rushing at the last second because everyone knows you can’t rush winged eyeliner. This might mean spend a little extra time on it Friday morning so that you don’t feel the need to re-do things at 5pm. Second, I try to have my outfit planned out at least mentally so I don’t have to scram in the yoga pants I’ve been wearing. This button down and denim mix is a classic last minute grab. Third, have dinner plans with people you like so that way however you show up you are welcomed with only smiles. Jake is a solid choice because we have successfully done black tie and local taco shop in PJs and he smiles at me across the table the same at both venues. Happy Thursday! Friday is almost here. Thanks for stopping by to read!
