a date with doug.

When you see your other half every day, it can sometimes get dull really quickly. You start not doing special little things with each other, because you're with them all the time. It all gets a bit lost in between all the daily life stuff. So it can be good to take a day, or even just a couple of hours, to do something special with each other.

I asked Doug to take me on a date, so he put his thinking cap on. He wouldn't tell me where we were going, and I was over the moon when we arrived at the doors of Bristol Aquarium! I absolutely love aquariums (I even went to one for my birthday this year!) and I'd still not been to this one, so it was the perfect idea.

After we'd stared at the fishes for long enough, we walked over to Turtle Bay, where we had a mojito each & some yummy food. We started with calamari & roasted chickpeas, and then I had a jerk chicken wrap while Doug ate a yummy goat curry!

Do you have date days with your special person?

  1. Looks like you had a wonderful time Lyzi! The aquarium is like the perfect date! Such fun! x

  2. Looks like you had such a nice time! Great post! :)

  3. This is cute! My boyfriend and I are sadly long distance at the moment so when we do see each other we always try new things. We're not near any aquariums though, which is a shame as I love them! xx

  4. I'm so jealous, I never went to the aquarium whilst I was in Bristol :( You and Doug are the cutest! Miss you little lady! xx

  5. aw, this is so cute :) I see my boy almost everyday, too so it can become quite hard to think about something special to do with each other. but for our last anniversary I but together a little box with date-ideas and every now and then we'll pick one and off we go ;) xx Cici

  6. This sounds perfect! :) Love your Nemo photo too!

  12. This is so sweet :) I totally agree that you can forget to take time out for each other when you're together all the time. I usually come up with the ideas for getting away though, and my husband will always comply! Haha. Looks like you guys had a good time, I'd love to go to an aquarium!
