Black Tie Optional
But my husband put on his tuxedo and we headed out to the 'burbs. He knew it would make my brother laugh if he showed up to the dinner in black tie, and it was my brother's birthday. Before we arrived at our 5:30 dinner reservation, we had to stop at Nordstrom to pick up a birthday gift, and everyone was looking at us the entire time- my husband in his tux and I in my jeans. We arrived to the suburbs 30 minutes early, and my husband was disappointed when I refused to go to Costco with him wearing his tuxedo. It makes me uncomfortable to have all eyes on us.
The bit was worth it because as soon as my brother saw us in the parking lot he was cracking up at my husband. My husband played it cool: "What? You said it was a black tie optional?"
We had a lovely dinner together.
I love that my brother and my husband are BFF's. I also love that my husband wore his tuxedo to make my brother laugh. I would never do something like that, which is what I think is so spectacular.
Happy Birthday Fatty!
