A First

We did it.

We (my husband and I) left the kids with a sitter overnight.

A first.

Hubby and I have attended a black tie event in January in Detroit for the past 10 or so years with his co-workers and their spouses. And this year, we flew up north for the event, a reception that preceded it, and a fancy dinner after. We flew home the next morning. We were gone just over 24 hours.

The North American International Auto Show Charity Preview is a black tie event that raises money for a list of childrens' charities all in one evening.

We had a trusted sitter.

Was I nervous anyway? Anxious? Yes and yes.

And we all had a great time! Maybe the kids needed a break from Mom and Dad, too.

It's been a long time in coming. Im sure it's good to know the house was not only NOT burned down when you got back, but I suspect things were pretty much the same as you left it, right?

WTG you guys!
