The Tiny Heart: Bahamas: Night Looks & Anniversary

Bahamas: Night Looks & Anniversary

After spending all the day in the sun, we went out to dinner at a different restaurant every night. Having all these dates with my hubby was a nice excuse to get dressed up (at home we're usually eating at the local taco place, not exactly fancy schmancy).



This is me waiting for the bus...I wish the bus stops here in Jersey looked half this good.

Dress-F21 (cute option), Necklace-Bitterroot Vintage, Bag-Coach (similar), Pumps-Oasap.com

When I got to the restaurant, I saw that I was pretty much the only tourist that wasn't wearing shorts and a tank top. And I was definitely the only one that was wearing heels on the bus. But that's just how I roll.

I bought this dress in the Bahamas the day we went shopping downtown. You can't tell from the photo, but it's a maxi and it was only $21! I'm sure I'll be wearing it again soon on the blog so that you get to see the entire thing.

Anniversary Dinner:



Dress-Lulus.com (cute option), Necklace-Bitterroot Vintage

Our last night in the Bahamas was our first wedding anniversary (if you missed it, you can read about our wedding HERE). We wanted to go somewhere extra special. We picked an Italian restaurant that had an outdoor courtyard and was surrounded by palm trees and plants. Once it got dark, they lit lanterns on the table. They also had two cats that roamed the property (Adam fed a good portion of his seafood dinner to them). 

A few minutes into our dinner, Adam got a tap on the shoulder. To our amazement, it was the woman sitting across the aisle on our plane to the Bahamas! We had talked the entire plane ride and we planned to meet up during our trip. But alas, once on the island we had no cell reception and couldn't get in touch. This little surprise (coincidence? fate?) made our anniversary all the more sweeter. It was truly a wonderful night. 

And if you're wondering, my plane friend and I have already chatted again on Facebook.

  9. Fate indeed. I recently went on a little trip and noticed a fellow passenger and as it turned out we were traveling to and fro on the same dates and the same town...sadly once we boarded our last flight to get back to Chicago we lost each other...I was in the front of the plane and they were in the back...and all the excitement of landing we got separated...oh well...love little stories like these...great pictures...love that bright pink dress...

    Hugs,
    Lola

  32. Well, I think you are going to get some rain in NJ! We had a major downpour this afternoon, and I hope it has cooled off not made it more humid in Chicago! I love the white dress, you looked stunning for all the dinner occasions. I would love to find a delicious taco joint in Chicago...in downtown there aren't really any.
