Dating My Fiancé

Last night Scott and I went on a date, but this was no ordinary date, no, it was a Costco date! I've heard of couples going on dates to Costco before, and perhaps have giggled a time or two at the thought of it. Well, I'm here to tell you that Costco date nights really can be fun when you have a great co-pilot to push the cart, make jokes with about the lifetime supply of any frozen item you can think of, and get berries sundaes with at the end. Is this what growing up feels like? If so, sign me up!

Jokes aside, we've really been having some fun lately. Over the past month or so we've spent time with sweet friends, had dinner dates to some of our favorite restaurants, shared a cappuccino and stayed up way late (well, not for this night owl, but for my early bird), rented our first Redbox movie (it may be a little crazy that we're just now trying this, but it's an awesome service), worked on our wedding plans and started the hunt for our attire (promise he hasn't seen any dresses, though). All in all, we've had a pretty nice month and I'm excited to see what August will hold.

Outfit details:
Blouse: Ross
Bag: Madewell
Bracelets: vintage + new assortment
Caroline sandals (on super sale now!): c/o Blowfish Shoes

This morning I woke up to the sound of tremendously loud thunder and a big rain storm happening outside. Again, I feel like the month of July has been real kind to us, weather wise this time, and I love that I've already had the chance to pull out a new "for fall" coat that I bought on sale for $7 earlier this summer. Although the rain didn't last long today, I have a feeling it will be back very soon.

What kind of date nights do you enjoy going on? Are you already dreaming about fall (like me - always thinking to the next season)?
