Date Nights

I wore this outfit last week for a date night with Izzy. I've been lucky enough to have two days off in a row for the last month or two, and it's nice because we can actually go out without me feeling like I need to go to bed super early. Ah the life of an early morning server.

We went to a place in Stillwater, MN called Leo's Grill and Malt Shop, and it was pretty fantastic. It's just this small little place that's totally retro and serves amazing shakes. We split a chocolate peanut butter shake and I swear when I licked the gob of peanut butter off the spoon I was in heaven.

I know date nights are something little, but they make me happy. Being able to go enjoy a meal and just talk with Izzy is something I don't ever want to take for granted. And when we find new places, like Leo's Grill, it's almost like we're adding it to what will be the history of us. Together. And there is something so sweet about that!

Because I can't help but feel a little lovey dovey lately, I had to wear this super sweet XOXO t-shirt from I felt cute but comfy the whole evening, and there's something awesome about that! This versatile tee is going to be seen a lot, I have a feeling!

What do you like to do on date nights?

Currently {25}

Reading: When I found out a fellow blogger had published a book, I had to read it. I started reading Breathe Again: A Love Story by Joelle Duff. I'd say I'm about halfway through and if you like sweet little love stories then I'd say go get your hands on this book!

Eating: We just grilled out for the second time yesterday! Both times we've had steak. The first time was because, well, you should have steak for your first grill of the season! And yesterday was to celebrate Izzy's 6 month review at work (which was amazing, of course). Mmm, I could have steak every single day and be happy!

Loving: Steak. Haha, just kidding. Kind of. I'm loving texting Izzy "almost hubby" texts. Only 37 more days people! I'm also loving that even when I totally freak out, Izzy's there to calm me down. Because that's what good guys are for, right?

Watching: Last week, I finished Dexter. Contrary to how a lot of people felt, I actually really liked the ending. Now I'm watching the US version of Being Human and I'm sort of in love with Aidan. If you love werewolves, vampires, and ghosts you'll probably like this show, although it can be a little gross.

Looking Forward To: Having my dental stuff DONE. I went to the dentist last week and found out I need a root canal, a crown, and 4 fillings. Joy. I'm not sure what's worse, how painful all this stuff is or the fact that it's going to cost me $2400. Yikes. But once it's all done my teeth will be good, something that I haven't been able to say since, oh, like 2007.

Thinking About: How much my life has changed since the last time my teeth were good. What, I mean, 7 years is a long time! Back then I never, ever would have thought I'd be where I am now. Oddly enough, I was close to being engaged the first time around, 7 years ago. So weird to think about. I am so happy to be in this spot, even with the bad stuff. Because I have Izzy, and he is an amazing, supportive man that I am excited to spend my life with.

How about you, what are you up to?

Fashionable Macarons

The first time I had a macaron, I was not impressed. I got a couple from Cossetta's in St. Paul, which makes amazing cannolis, so I just assumed their macarons would be amazing too. I was unfortunately disappointed and wondered if it was those macarons or if I just didn't like macarons in general.

Then I discovered 'Lette Macarons, and I realized that not all macarons are created equal. Because this macaron shop, located in Los Angeles, knows how to make a delicious dessert. I quickly discovered my favorite flavors of macarons, Passion Fruit and Sweet Wedding Almond, and Izzy discovered his, Carribbean Chocolate and Madagascar Vanilla. But really, you can't go wrong when it comes to 'Lette Macarons, because they're all delicious.

I think the thing I like best about colorful little macarons is that they can literally match whatever outfit you're wearing. I happened to be wearing the Tea 'n Rose dress from ever + mi crush and I found it kind of adorable how easy it was to match a couple of macarons to the color of the dress. Fashionable dessert? Kind of a win/win, right?

What do you think? Do you love macarons?
