Our beloved hubster was away all last week. In Hawaii, to be exact.
No, not Hawaii, Antartica. Hawaii, Hawaii.
For (ahem) "work."
Which meant Miss Priss and I had to do something equally exciting and exotic while he was gone.
So we embarked on very Fancy Trip to Fresno! (Ok, maybe not quite as exciting or exotic as I'd hoped, but we make due with what we got!)
We dressed up in our very Fancy Fashions...
Miss Priss was sporting a zebra print dress, while Mommy had on a patterned dress (that hadn't been worn before because it made her look pregnant, but is now regaled for it's ability to make her look pregnant).
Then Mommy, in a very Fancy and Stylish manner, cleaned up some dog puke, courtesy of one poor little Eddie-pie.
With the carpet all clean, Priss and Mommy were off to Fresno to partake in a very Fancy Luncheon...
OK, ya'll, quite giggling! (I'm talking to you, Jamie!) There's only but so long I can get away with these sorts of "dress ups." I gotta do it while I can!
If you haven't guessed yet, we dined at Cheesecake Factory. Which means, of course, HAD to embibe in some very Fancy cheesecake...
Chocolate, of course. See that good sized piece of Godiva chocolate perched atop that mouth-watering piece of cake? Priss, in all her Fanciness, plucked that defenseless piece of chocolate from atop its sweetened throne and popped the whole thing in her mouth. Couldn't imagine where she'd ever get that trait from.
After our cake had been Fancifully devoured, we took off to strut our Fanciness all over the mall. Miss Priss got a Fancy new bear outfit from Build-A-Bear and Mommy treated herself to a bottle of Extra Fancy nail polish (chosen by Miss Priss, so hue of hot pink, of course).
And what would the day have been if we had not stopped at the indoor playground throw our Fanciness in the faces all the other kids and moms?
Miss Priss showed off her Fanciest Face First sliding moves.
Finally, after basking in so much Fanciness, it was time to make our way back home. One of us fell asleep during the drive...
After a dinner of frozen waffles (because Mommy was NOT the one napping, if you recall) it was time to get Miss Priss into her jammies and off to bed. As Mommy pulled off the zebra dress and sent it flying into the hamper, Mommy said to Priss,
"Wasn't that such a Fancy Dress, Priss? We had such a Fun and Fancy day!"
"Not Fancy d-ess," Priss exclaimed, with a shake of her trademark curls.
"It's not?" Mommy cried, dismayed.
"PU-PLE d-ess is FANCY!"
That would be the purple dress-up Fancy Nancy dress that's hanging on a hook in her room. The one closes in the back with velcro.
Well, at least I tried.
