  1. I would love to get all gussied up in those gorgeous colors for a dinner out with my hubby — Leaving the little one with Gramma for the night!

  2. Thanks for the opportunity Abbie!

    I am a follower and I would go out on a date with my man, all dolled up with the October goodies. What a better reason for a date night :c)

    I also like FiveDaysFiveWays on Facebook.

    Thanks for much for your blog. I don’t comment much, but I should because you and Mandy have helped transform my life in such a positive way. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!!

  3. If I won the give-a-way this month..I would totally rock a brown dress with that beautiful starched flower (which I tried to make with epic FAIL) 🙁 I would love to go out to dinner with my hubby..without the kids ,hee,hee! I’m so mentioning you on my blog! (as well as the give-a-way!).. Thanks so much for your blog! I love it!

  4. I would take my husband out for dinner at a nice Bistro, downtown. And let him do all the talking over our meal. 🙂

  5. I’m a newish follower (ms.curdy) of 5d5w.
    I’d wear it all out on halloween, and nobody would know it’s me with all that pretty! 🙂

  6. I like 5 days on FB and follow via email! I’d use the goodies to gussy up my girls and myself for a girls night!

  7. I would totally get all gussied up to go on my anniversary date this month with my husband! We have been married 7 years this month, whoooooooot!

  8. I would get gussied up to go on a date with my husband! Haven’t been on one since my son was born 4 1/2 months ago 🙂

  9. Where to go, where to go. I’d like to say I’d go on a date with the much-to-often neglected husband. But I’d probably end up at wal-mart getting yet another gallon of milk and loaf (or two) of bread!

  10. I follow you! Amanda Triplet or Amanda T on google…I won’t know for sure until I leave the comment and it shows me the name I have registered…isn’t that sad?!

    and I would wear all that awesomeness to a fall festival (or 3!) 🙂

I love hearing from you guys!
