Picnic Date

09.14.15

Hello, dolls! Hello, APRIL!! <3 This month is going to be filled with sooo much love! April is special to me because it’s our anniversary month. I spend the entire month of March thinking about the great adventures that we have planned. This year, we are including baby A on our anniversary weekend again. Like I said in my post NJ Diaries: Summer ,we are going to include him in our celebration because we have 2 weekends lined up without him so being the sentimental Momma that I am, I think being away from him for 2 weekends in a year is enough… for now lol.

I have exactly 2 weeks until our trip and I’ve been so busy trying to prepare for it. My excitement is through the roof as I think about being at my happy place (the airport) with baby A again. I am seriously thinking of packing now, but I know for sure that I will be seeing prospective outfits for our trip between tomorrow and the 19th lol! I am going to TRY my best to pack light so A doesn’t lose his sanity when he loads everything in the car.

One of the things that A and I love to do every year is to go on a picnic <3

It has always been my dream to go on a picnic date. I remember putting that in my notebook when I was 17. I couldn’t be any happier that it’s A who made it happen <3

I got this picnic basket from our  Macy’s Wedding Registry! I was so ecstatic when our cousins from NYC gave this to me on my bridal shower! It’s definitely one of my favorite wedding presents ever!!! <3

Our beautiful spread! I have to commend A for waking up early that day to prepare everything. A is not a baker but he did an amazing job with the olive oil cake.

Our cheese plate — smoked gouda, crackers, and grapes.

A cheese plate is always a GOOD idea.
