date day: let's get real

M and I made a "resolution" so to speak of turning our weekly diner breakfast into a day trip. So far this year, we've gone to an out of town diner twice. This week we had planned trip number three, but when that morning rolled around...sleeping until noon seemed more appealing. So off to our local favorite: Jack's.

M will probably kill me for posting this photo, but let's be real: we went out in public like this, so why can't our friends on the internet see it as well. ;)

In the spirit of keeping it real, here's what M was staring at: me without anything done to my hair and no makeup. Scary, right? But real.

Our waitress at Jack's is so awesome. I think she could recite our order to us before we even open our mouths. She asked us here we'd been lately, and had to tell her that we recently moved a few towns over. Her reply, "well, that's not too far!"

After breakfast, we went over to browse the bookstore. Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close is one of my favorite books. I haven't seen the movie yet because I can't convince M to watch it. Despite being a HUGE Tom Hanks fan, he's iffy on the 9/11 story line.

M was checking out some Maximum Rock n Roll best of 2011 lists, and I spied the cover of MAD Magazine over his shoulder. 

What are your real date days like?


  1. girl, you look GREAT here, makeup or not (and your hair looks good too!)
    But I am pretty anti-makeup but SERIOUSLY, you don't even need it!

  2. That book is absolutely one of my favorites too....I think I've read it 5 times. I could not muster up the courage to watch the movie yet, because usually I'm super disappointed when it comes to movie versions of wonderful books.

    keeping it real is awesome! ;)


  3. sounds like a wonderful day. The photos are fun, too

  4. i LOVE that book too, and I liked the move a lot. I think they did a really good job translating it into film. the kid is really great in it! i cried about a million times.


leave us a note, we love to hear from you!
