Staycations are the best!

A few months ago, we planned a fun double date with my oldest and dearest friend and her husband over this last weekend. We try to get together every few months for a big night out (or in!) to fully catch up on *all* the things. So this was our weekend together!

But instead of doing our normal dinner out or at one of our homes, we decided to head to Titusville where we both grew up around the corner from one another. We dropped our kiddos off at our respective parent’s houses and hit the town!

We ended up at our new favorite spot The Daley Trade (if you ever are in Titusville, it’s a must go) for such a fun evening. After dinner and drinks we each headed back to home to our parent’s house where all the babies were asleep and there was promise of pancakes the next morning. It was like we were back in high school, but so much better! Truly though, a double date turned mini staycation is kind of the absolute best. I highly recommend it!

Okay, now that I’ve totally caught you up on our weekend, let’s get into the five things I’m loving right now!

I ordered this tank top in two colors and it’s just that good! It’s actually the same one I’m wearing in the photo above. Truly, just the best basic.
