The Non-Existent Date Night
So, I’ve heard that this whole date night thing is a must for a marriage. Well, to be honest, my husband and I don’t get out much. Now don’t get me wrong, I would love to have consistent and kid free getaways more often, but we don’t really have the necessary resources available to us–like time and money for example. Maybe if I dropped my shopping habit… ha!
San Antonio Talk
After our amazing Grand Canyon vacation, my husband had his annual coaching school which was located in San Antonio, TX this year. My husband and I thought this would be a great opportunity to getaway for a quick date night–staycation style. Luckily, my mom agreed to watching our girls for a full day and night–the first time we would ever be gone together overnight. Other than our honeymoon, we couldn’t think of a time when we actually had a full day to ourselves–kid free.
The drive to San Antonio from Dallas isn’t so bad. It’s around 4 1/2 hours, which is perfect for doing what we rarely get a chance to do–talk and laugh. I felt like we were giddy teenagers away from our parents for the first time.
After arriving and checking in to our hotel, we went straight for the River Walk for a boat tour and amazing Italian food right off of the water. I literally almost forgot we were in Texas!
On this evening I wore a red crochet mini dress with pom-pom trim by SheIn and received so many sweet compliments. As we explored, I wore my rose gold metallic slides (see similar here, here, and here), and for dinner, I let my hair down and laced up my nude heels by Steve Madden.
The next day, we got to do just a little more exploring in the Downtown area, so I was sure to wear something a bit festive. I wore my gorgeous Christin Michaels maxi dress as we had lunch outside the Alamo and walked the beautiful streets of Downtown San Antonio.
After lunch, it was about that time to head back towards Dallas, but we knew Mexican off of
South Congress in Austin, TX was a must! This past spring, my hubs took us to Austin for a nice family getaway. We immediately fell in love with South Congress, so we definitely wanted to go back for a quick and early dinner at a fun Mexican spot. Here I wore an off the shoulder bell sleeved top, also by SheIn (see here in a chambray/denim as well) with distressed denim shorts (DIY–see similar here and here) from Nordstrom.
After a lot laughing, a little flirting, and a lot of talking (mostly about missing our girls) we decided that we deserved to invest more time in our four-year long marriage. Easier said than done I’m assuming. Well, if you have the chance for a quick date night/mini staycation with your significant other, take it! Take the time to simply talk and laugh–you two are worth the investment.
