MIM From A to Z: D is for Date Night Ideas

Hello friends, how’s everyone doing today? This week, I’m inching closer and closer to 29 (my birthday is Saturday!), and I’m so looking forward to it. We’re taking a long weekend trip to Lake Placid, staying in a cabin with like 15 other people, and playing in the snow. Really looking forward to it!

I remember my mom turning 29 like three years in a row, no joke. She simply REFUSED to turn 30;  her birthday cake said: “29 again” two years in a row. It’s honestly one of my favorite memories from her birthdays. I’m looking forward to ringing in 29 by having a fun weekend in the mountains with friends. 


Okay, welcome back to the Making it Millennial from A to Z series! In today’s post, I’m sharing 12 date night ideas for you and bae that are easy to do and won’t break the bank. Thinking about Valentine’s Day? Last year, I posted a quick-guide for Valentine’s Day date ideas that you can check out here
