Back-to-Back Date Nights

This past weekend was spent celebrating our anniversary! 


Six years ago yesterday, we got married! 


We've been through a lot together and have grown, laughed, and shared so much over the nine and a half years we've been together. I'll have a wedding recap post this week, so stay tuned! 


Speaking of weddings, my bestie just received her wedding photos this last week and it has been so fun looking back and reminiscing about her special day! Since we're all from different states, we talked about doing a bridesmaids reunion sometime in a next few years and I'm really hoping we can make this happen! The wedding weekend spent with Allie and the bridesmaids was one that I will always cherish -- such a great group of girls in that photo above! 


On Saturday, I woke up early and hit Target for a few groceries before coming home to grab a quick lunch and head to the gym for a shoulders + triceps and cardio workout. 


Afterwards, I showered and got ready before swinging by our gym's cafe for my favorite shake. Ordering this shake immediately reminded me to reorder a bag of mocha java powder online so I can make these shakes at home! It's just half a scoop of the mocha mix, one scoop of vanilla protein, ice, and unsweetened almond milk. IT'S SO GOOD.


I had a pedicure scheduled at 2pm, so I headed down the hall to the LifeSpa for my appointment. It felt so good to relax, read my book, and sip my shake while getting my toes done! I almost always choose a light pink whenever I get a pedicure -- I just love the neutral look.

By the time I left the club, it was raining pretty hard -- I drove to another location of Life Time (which is literally 6 minutes away) for my hair appointment with Krista! It was definitely an afternoon of pampering and it was much needed! I got my sassy little bob all cleaned up and she styled my hair in fun little 'do for my date night with Andy! 


Upon arriving home, I quickly changed clothes and we headed back out in the rain for our dinner date!


We decided to go to BLVD and it did not disappoint! I loved the atmosphere, service, and menu! Such a unique place that we plan to visit again! 

By the time we left, it was a total downpour outside! We huddled under our umbrella as we dashed out to our car -- laughing because we were still getting wet due to the parking lot having huge puddles all over. We decided to swing by the mall on the way home to walk around for a bit before heading back.


Side note, B&BW has a few of their Christmas candles out already and we were more than happy to make a pitstop to check them out! They all smell SO good, but I think this one and this one were my favorites.

On Sunday morning, I was up before the sun and worked on some blog posts while sipping coffee and enjoying some homemade apple cinnamon oatmeal. I also did some research on essential oils and ordered a few new ones to add to my collection.

Later on, after some laundry, cleaning up, and meal prep for the week, I headed out for a walk. I think we've officially reached the point in the season where gloves are a necessity for walking outside! My hands were SO cold by the time I arrived home! The leaves on the trail were spectacular and it felt so good to get some fresh air while listening to an audiobook on my walk.

Later that afternoon, we exchanged cards and gifts for our anniversary and then headed downtown for dinner! I'm excited to see what this next year of marriage brings -- it's hard to believe it's already been six years! 

I'm heading out for a dental cleaning and then am off to work for the day. I'm grabbing dinner with my auntie tonight and I'm really looking forward to catching up with her. Hope your Monday is off to a great start! 

PS I'm linking up with Biana today!
