Impromptu night out!
It all started with an innocent shopping trip… My mom gave me some cash for my birthday, and I really wanted to buy some summer clothes with the money. The Husband accompanied me to Old Navy, and we stopped off at Starbucks for a coffee before we started. The Husband is really getting turned off to milk all the sudden, so we got soy lattes. Pretty good – I couldn’t tell a difference!
After shopping, we decided to grab a beer. Downtown Orlando has such a great happy-hour scene. Orlando is so much MORE than Disney and International Drive. If you ever visit my lovely town, please explore Thornton Park (where we were tonight) and Winter Park (another cool area).
We explored for a while…
And then settled on our old favorite, Dexter’s.
Kids, I wish I had a responsible explanation for what happened next, but I really don’t. I just love BEER! I had a wheat beer and two IPAs.
(Obviously, I was NOT the driver!)
We had some food to steady us. The Husband and I split the grilled veggie sandwich to save some cash. The Husband asked that we skip the cheese (apparently, he’s off of cheese right now, too!), and I obliged.
Operation Beautiful in the menu:
We have become one of those couples who sit in virtual silence playing on our iPhones. Hah! Just kidding. Well… not really. ;) We spent most of the time looking for future homes-for-rent on Craigslist. We’re moving to Charlotte in 60 days! I am getting so excited for a change.
After dinner + drinks, we decided to walk off some of our beer by walking Downtown.
I love the old arts and crafts-style homes! My singular focus is finding a similar home when we move to Charlotte. I want to rent a single-family home with a backyard in a walkable neighborhood. The Husband wants a swanky apartment in happenin’ part of town. I’m sure we can find a middle ground. Right?!
Some of my Orlando favorites:
Houses + heel clicks!
Oh my! (BFF Sarah, that was for you!)
A wild and crazy night in Caitlin + Husband land. Now we’re going to watch DVR-ed golf and eat peanut butter and banana sandwiches. Sounds like a good night to me!
