What I Did For My Birthday (8/12/2019)

Hey babes! If you saw my post from yesterday, I explained that it was my birthday. I had an amazing birthday and I wanted to share what I did for it! I told Ryan to stop getting me gifts (unless it’s something that holds meaning or is symbolic or it truly was something that he wanted to gift to me. Otherwise I stopped asking for material items for gifts because I would personally rather have an experience instead. Something that we can do together and have a nice memory from. So Ryan gave me just that for my birthday.

We had a beautiful morning, spending it with my family and then spent the afternoon in New York City. It was an amazing surprise and I had no idea what to expect the whole day. We got to the city and we were at a beautiful place called Refinery Rooftop. Which is a beautiful rooftop bar/ restaurant and we had an awesome dinner, some amazing drinks and then during sunsets we walked to our favorite place in the city, Bryant Park. I couldn’t ask for anything more perfect.

I had a wonderful birthday and I loved every moment of it! I hope you enjoyed this post and remember to subscribe for email notifications for when I post new content and make sure to comment down below where you went for your most recent birthday!

Date Idea: Boating Weekend (7/28/2019)

Hey everyone! For today’s post I’m going to talk a little bit about a date idea that Ryan and I had and tried out this week. We love coming up with date ideas for y’all because it is so important to spend quality time with your significant other and we feel that doing the same old dates can get overplayed and boring. So Ryan and I are always looking for different dates to go on and try out. 

We chose to go boating and jet skiing for a whole weekend! We felt like we needed a little get away time for the both of us so we decided to use his families jet ski and boat for the whole weekend. We realize that not everyone has a boat to just use to their disposal so we suggest renting a boat for a day or two if you don’t have one! If there is no ocean around you, then you can rent kayaks or a canoe and camp near your closest lake, creek or river. 
This weekend was so perfect because it was like a mini stay-cation and we were able to truly get away for a weekend and just have fun! It was definitely a stress reliever. I definitely recommend doing this!

Date Night: Billy Joel Concert (7/11/2019)

Hey y’all! Tonight Ryan and I are at a Billy Joel concert for a date night and I wanted to talk about going on a date night to your favorite artists. I feel like music is such an important part of life and it is such a great way to bond with people not exclusively in friendships and relationships but just personal connections in general. 

Since the dawn of time (or more like the existence of human life), music has been something that banded and bonded people together. It truly is important to have that connection with your significant other as well. I definitely suggest going to concerts together to your favorite artists or bands/ artists that mean something to you or your relationship. For example, go see the band that sings the song you first danced to etc. 
For Ryan and I, we definitely bond over classic rock genre music but we both really like Billy Joel. Ryan also says that the song “She’s Always a Woman” is a song that means a lot to him because it remind him of me. So seeing Billy Joel is such an amazing experience for both of us! I got him the tickets to see Billy Joel for his 21st birthday. 
Another idea is to go to the concert with a couple of friends for a double or triple date! I hope you enjoyed this post and remember to subscribe for email notifications for when I post new content. Make sure you comment down below what bands/artists/ musical groups etc. mean a lot to you and your significant other!

Girls Night Idea: Meditation (6/12/2019)

Hey y’all! One of my sorority sisters had just recently introduced me to singing bowl meditation. We go to this meditation place that is right near where we both live. I feel like meditation is the unsung hero. This is mostly because you don’t realize how much you truly need meditation until you’ve tried it and feel it’s effects.

I have gone a few times now and meditation truly helps me with clearing my mind as well as helping me with emotions that I’m feeling. My sorority sister brought me and when she wasn’t available to go I asked my other friends to come with. We all absolutely loved it and honestly I suggest making a girls night out of it.

These experiences have made me and my girlfriends closer and it’s something new to try but also something fun to do together. Plus, you might even get something out of this girls night other than fun memories. It could actually help heal your mind, body and spirit. I hope you try this girls night and remember to subscribe for email notifications for when I post new content and make sure to comment down below what experiences you have with meditation.

Date Night: Bringing Our Niece To The Boardwalk (6/7/2019)

Hey everyone! I wanted to share a date night idea that Ryan and I tested out recently. We had brought our niece to the boardwalk with us and we actually had a ton of fun! I know little kids aren’t everyone’s cup of tea but I seriously recommend trying it before you say it isn’t for you. We have tried a lot of date nights and this is by far the best.
We first picked up my niece from my sisters house which isn’t too far from where I live, and then we drove her over to the boardwalk.

The first thing we did was bring her to get food because we knew that she didn’t eat dinner yet. We got her some chicken tenders and I gave her a baby food pouch to hold her over and also make sure she got vegetables and fruits in her diet.

We then took her in the carriage and walked her around the boardwalk and then put her on some of the baby rides on the boardwalk. It was so exciting for us because we got to see how happy she was riding the rides. Then of course we brought her to have some ice cream because what is a day on a boardwalk without some ice cream? Ryan and I had a blast with our niece and I really recommend bringing the kids in your family (with the parents permission of course) out for a day at the boardwalk, park or even a relaxing day at a splash park. It may be taxing to do but I promise you it’s all worth it when the child talks about it to you and when they’re having fun!
Ryan and I feel like this whole experience has made us closer not only with each other but with our niece. It is amazing that this will be something that she remembers doing with both Ryan and I. I hope that you enjoyed this post and try this date idea and remember to subscribe for emails to be notified when I post new content. Comment down below somewhere fun you remember your aunt and uncle or older family member bringing you as a child, for me I remember my Aunt letting me stay at her house for a few weeks in the summer and bringing me to my cousin’s basketball games!

Girls Day Ideas: Girls Beach Day (6/3/2019)

Hey everyone! I’ve been doing a lot of date night ideas for your significant other, but I have totally been ignoring the importance of girl time. I love all my friends like family, and I make sure I see my girlfriends at least twice a week because they mean so much to me! Girl/ Friend time is super important so definitely make sure to make time for your buddies.

Almost all my friends are girls so I will be writing today’s post about “girls day” but these posts can be interchangeably used, of course, with guy friends or friends of any gender.

So, the girls day I just recently had was a girls beach day. We had so much fun and I definitely recommend making a whole beach day with your gal pals. Since the warmer months are here it should be a lot of fun to soak up the sun and go to the beach or even go to a river, creek or lake. We all had a ton of fun on girls beach day and what made it better was that we didn’t have to spend a ton of money. Sometimes having girls days, girls night or even date night can be a lot to handle because if you don’t have the money to spend you don’t want to do these things. But, there are always affordable/ cheap/ free alternatives.

For this beach day we went to a free beach near us and we packed drinks and lunches! It was perfectly free and fun! I recommend doing this with your gal pals or your friends in general!

Date Night in NYC (5/29/2019)

Hey y’all I wanted to share a date night that I recently had because it all felt so magical. Ryan truly know the way to my heart. For my graduation he gifted me azaleas to plant in my yard and if you have been following me for a while you know I love gardening. He also gifted me KitKats (my favorite candy) and then he got me a Disney congratulations card. But that’s not all, Ryan got me Broadway tickets to see Pretty Woman. He is the literal best!

Our date night was so incredible, and he knows that I love New York City more than anything. I have a deep-rooted connection to New York because I was born there and my whole family is from New York. I go to Manhattan any chance that I get because although I cannot live there, a piece of my heart does.

We decided to go to Shake Shack for food because it’s a ritual that I go there and get a burger. It’s literally the only burger that I will eat. Then we went to the Broadway show Pretty Woman which was so wonderful and to make it even better the actress who played Eponine in Les Miserables the movie was the main character! I was so happy and we both had a great time! I definitely suggest going to NYC and seeing a Broadway show for a date night if you want to do something different or take a trip! I’ve seen over 15 Broadway shows and I’ve loved them all!

Double Date Idea: Hatchet Throwing (5/15/2019)

Hi y’all, I recently went on a double date with my best friend and her boyfriend and I figured that it was such a unique double date idea, I would share it with you all! If you’ve been following me for a while then you definitely know that I am big on date nights and I always try and come up with some fun and unique ones.

Recently, Ryan and I went on a double date with our friends to some hatchet throwing and it was such an exhilarating experience. It’s definitely a great way to use up some energy and just let loose. Also, who doesn’t like a little friendly competition? You don’t just throw hatchets at the wall, there are games that you play against other “teams” which are other couples/party groups! Just prepare to be a little sore the next day (those hatchets are pretty heavy)!

I definitely suggest wearing some loose and comfortable clothing so you don’t feel restricted doing this sport! When I went I wore a loose fitted gray maxi dress with the front tied up so I didn’t trip over it and I paired it with a loose fitted jean jacket and some cream colored converse sneakers. It was a ton of fun and it is so amazing because most hatchet throwing places are BYOB and BYOF. So, you can bring some wine or beer and bring some pizza which is exactly what we did. It was a ton of fun and I definitely suggest doing it especially as a double date to turn up the competition!

Hey everyone! I am super excited to share with you all some amazing spring date ideas that I’ve been coming up with recently. Going on dates is super important in a relationship which is why I love doing posts on it on my blog.

Sometimes being in a relationship for a long time makes it hard to come up with fresh date ideas. You’ve gone and done so much together that it feels like you have done it all. Repeating dates can get super boring for each person in the relationship! So of course I am here to help with a list of fresh date ideas to use for you and your significant other!

Here’s the Best Spring Date Ideas of 2019:

• Bike Ride in a new neighborhood

• Have a picnic in a park together

• Go to the farmers market and make dinner with the items you bought

• Do a backyard DIY together

• Buy some camping gear and camp in the backyard or go on a camping trip

• Watch movies on a makeshift projector screen outside

• Go on a fun scavenger hunt together

• Go on a double date with another couple you like to hangout with

• Do an at home wine/beer tasting event and invite friends

• Look up what’s going on in town, write all of the events on pieces of paper and toss them all around in a hat. Do a random drawing and go to the event you chose!

• Go to your local arcade and then go out for some pizza and ice cream afterwards

• Find a cause to volunteer for and do it together. There is nothing like giving back.

• Go to a lantern festival or order a lantern on Amazon/ online and release the lantern

• Lay under the stars and just talk about life as you stargaze

• Attend a local baseball game together and cheer on your favorite team! You can even make bets to each other on which team you think will win and the winner gets something of their choice!

• Wake up early on the weekend and find some cool stuff together at yard sales that are happening around you

• Visit a flower farm and take some really beautiful pictures together
