Valentine's Day is this weekend, so I thought it would be fitting to recap our January Dates! Timothy and I are very social people. We are hardly ever not with some of our friends on the weekends, so making sure we have time for some one on one time is very important to us. We love spending nights with our friends making memories we will never forget but since we are a newly married couple we also make time to set aside for just us two. With 2016 just beginning we wanted to make sure to not get too busy and make it a priority to also spend some time alone.
The first date we went on in 2016 was a day date...which are my favorite! We went to see Daddy's Home (which was hilarious), went out to eat Mexican (which is one of our favorite meals) and went shopping at Dicks. It wasn't an over the top date but we had a blast and spent the entire day together.
The second weekend in 2016 we managed a little us time before dinner with some friends. We planned on meeting some friends at the Ale House for dinner and drinks to watch the NFL games, so we decided to get there a little earlier to have a little us time. We ordered apps and stuffed our faces. It may not have been a full on date night, but we had about an hour together to have a little mini date before our friends out there.
We really did a lot of things just us two this month and it was perfect. The third weekend we went on a double date with 2 of our friends that we have both known since we began dating, Nick and Molly. Turns out I knew Molly through work and Timmy ended up knowing Molly through ECU and Nick and Timmy were friends before we started dating. Then about a month or so later we heard that Nick and Molly had been dating for a little, it was so fun to hear that 2 of our separate friends had began dating and we could all hang out together! They are getting married in May!
We had planned on going ice skating in downtown, you know one of my Winter bucket list items, but it ended up raining so we decided to try out the Raleigh Beer Garden. It was such a neat experience, they have over 350 beers on tap and you can get pretty much any beer from anywhere. We will definitely be visiting again!
We of course had a whole week of day dates and date nights when we spent an entire weekend in Mexico!
Don't miss a thing ~ Follow along!
