Double Date

Every once in a while, couples need to do something refreshing to keep things interesting. Sometimes, the same old same old can get… old. Double dating can change up the normal routine by allowing other people to be a part of your date night.

d9w3oRoss and I decided to double date with my cousin Andrew and his girlfriend Taylor tonight. The four of us have been friends for year and we always make time for each other. We usually like to pick restaurants that we haven’t been to and experience them together. Other times, we like to visit some of our favorite spots just for old time’s sake. Tonight we did both.

We decided to have dinner at Rotolo’s Pizzeria in Houma since we had never visited there before. It had been a while since we last saw each other, so our pizza was accompanied by a lot of catching up.

Afterwards, we decided to go to our favorite ice cream parlor, Scarlet Scoop. Saying goodbye at the end of out double dates with Andrew and Taylor are always so hard, so our nights are usually always prolonged by getting ice cream.

Wedding Weekend

Ross and I spent yesterday and today driving back and forth from Thibodaux to Plaquemine, Louisiana to be a part of our friends’ wedding. The drive is about an hour and a half one-way which had us on the road for about 6 hours for the past two days.

The drive was well worth it in the end. We got to spend time with friends, including the bride and groom, who we don’t get the chance to see very often. We also got to dress up together, which we don’t often get the chance to do. We clean up rather nice, if I do say so myself.

Once we got there, we were able to spend time with many people we care about, which made the long drives worth-while. Even the drives themselves weren’t that bad because we were able to use that one-on-one time to catch each other up on our weeks over some music.

Welcome

Welcome to my blog! My name is Caroline and I’m a college student who makes up 50% of a hard-working couple. The other half is my boyfriend Ross, a college graduate who recently started working full-time. Just as everyone experiences new chapters in their lives, our current chapter involves working harder and seeing each other less. Since making time for each other is one of the most important aspects of our relationship, I decided to use this blog to show how we are still able to make the most of our free time together despite our busy schedules.
