date idea: coffee shop hopping

Hi! I’m Emily, and I blog with my husband Hudson at Special thanks to Brooklyn for allowing me to blog here today – I just love her! When she asked what I wanted to share about, I knew right and marriage.

You see, Hudson and I are best friends. But over the years I've learned that life gets busy, and especially when you're married, it's not always easy to make time for each other like it should be. So we've compiled an entire list of dates for every season of the year: spring datessummer datesfall dates, and winter dates.

 Today I want to share about one of my favorite dates, because it's relatively inexpensive and easy to plan, but a lot of fun: coffee shop hopping! 

Basically, Hudson Googled "coffee shops," "cafes," and "bagel shops" in our area. He then plugged all the addresses into Google maps, printed out the list, and we headed on our way! Whether you're new to your town or you've lived there your entire life, I'm sure there are a few places you haven't tried yet. This date was not only fun to experience new places in our town, but also to go on an adventure...we had some great conversations and got to be silly, too :)

 If you try this, I definitely recommend ordering something different at each place! I'm a I'll-stick-with-what-I-like type person, but this was the perfect chance to try different drinks. Neither of us actually like coffee (crazy, I know!) so we went with a strawberry frappuccino, hot chocolate, cookies & cream smoothie, and raspberry iced tea!

 To keep the cost down, you can order just one drink at each place and share! There were seven shops on our list but three were closed on Saturday afternoons (who does that?!) so we ended up going to four places...and only spent $12! Talk about a great date for a cheap price!!

What are some of YOUR favorite dates? Comment below, or come tell us at!
