Speakeasies and Cookies

Florida has officially turned the heat on, and we've been enjoying lots of pool time and patio meals. We even snuck in our first date night in years. We go on lots of day dates by taking time off while Lil' Miss is at school, but hadn't had a night out together sans kiddo in quite some time.

We went to not 1 but 2 speakeasy spots downtown one with a secret door and the other where you needed a password to enter and go up to their secluded roof top area. Always fun, and the Orlando skyline never disappoints! 

I added 2 new special pieces to my date night look which are from the Dune Jewelry x Luca + Dani collection in honor of Worlds Oceans Day. Each piece is filled with sand from the beaches in Cape Cod which always holds a place in my heart as I grew up going to the Cape every summer with my family and it's one of the first getaways my husband and I had when we were dating. 

Beach memories are the best memories, and these nautical bracelets evoke warm, happy, and beachy day vibes. Playing in the sand with my brother and cousins, looking for hermit crabs with my grandparents, and always looking out for the windmills are some of my favorite memories of Cape Cod. 

Each piece from this collection will benefit the Association to Preserve Cape Cod with 10% of the proceeds. I love beautiful pieces that also support a cause, and this one comes with beautiful memories as well. I also plan on wearing it next year at my cousin's wedding on the Cape which will build upon new memories as well. 

Other goings on lately were these cookies! Oh my! My husband had been talking about Crumbl Cookies for a while, and when I went to get a pedicure recently I saw the shop in the same plaza and immediately decided to go inside and order a box to take home and for us all to enjoy. Let me tell you they are worth the hype! If you have one near you don't walk - RUN! 

Lil' Miss also had her first week of VBS, and loved every second. Her favorite parts were singing, snacktime (of course), games, and arts "and craps". I thought it was adorable that she called arts and crafts - arts and craps. I'll miss those little things as she gets older and more well spoken. I tell her all the time to please stay little, and she just yells back "NO! I want to get bigger!" Sigh.

  10. Yay so glad you got to get out with the hubby. Sounds like fun and love your bracelets. What a unique way to keep something special close to your heart. And I can relate. We actually haven't gone on any day or night dates because little man is always with us! I also tell my son to enjoy his childhood first but he tells that he is already old. Ugh! :( I hope your week is going well so far and happy Monday!
