A pretty day spent at home preparing for interview season (for those who are just tuning in, I’m interviewing for residency in Anesthesiology), cleaning house, and then trying out a new churrascaria down the street (sadly, we were not impressed). But good wine and each other’s company is really all we need to have a good time.

Dining out is really one of our favorite things to do as a couple together. When we first started dating, it was a lot of movie-going. But that got old (and expensive) fairly quickly. We are both foodies, and we love a good bottle of pinot noir, so it rapidly filled our #1 slot of favorite ways to spend time together.

What is your favorite thing to do with your significant other? (And for the singles out there–what do you do for yourself? When I was single, it was watching musicals at home in pajamas with comfort food–haha!)

P.S. – Vahni spent the weekend in Barcelona, and she has a ton of photos and videos to share with us! I’ll be sharing her MNG by MANGO mission with you all soon!

    Ahh…favorite single thing to do is cuddle with my dog, take a walk in warm weather, then watch a movie on the couch! Pretty boring, but oh so comfy!

    I am absolutely loving this flowy top paired with the blazer! Such a pretty look! And yesss, a nice dinner and vino is one of my favorite things to do, both with the fella and with a group of girlfriends!

    I really really like your blazer – I was just thinking the other day that I need to find one this color to round out my collection! Also, the shoes are absolutely fab.

    My husband and I like anything out of the house without our boys together! Mostly all you can eat Chinese food! ha that sounds bad, we love our little guys but you know, we like us some grownup time too!! And when it is so hard to find a babysitter, it becomes precious!

    My husband & I LOVE staying home, ordering takeout & catching up on our DVR shows. When we head out, it is to a restaurant…we love trying new places. Taking roadtrips is also a top one for us!

  10. Do you have this camera? Would you recommend it ..Or just go for the SLR? I have a good pocket camera that is small…very.
    I am getting used to this long short layered look that I am seeing everywhere. The proportions are unusual to my eye. 1st picture is my favorite! Shoes–new choice for you…haven’t seen you wear that style before!

  11. 10.24.2011 / 2:18 pm

    You’re going to do great at your interview! Residency will be completely awesome! Just that much closer to the ultimate goal!

  12. 10.24.2011 / 2:32 pm

    Good luck on your interview! I’m sure you will do GREAT! :)That blazer is too cute — I love it.

    My husband and I love to just hang out with each other. We usually go to Cedar Creek (In the Heights…I’m in Houston too) to have a good burger and a Country Ass Tea…aka…speaked frozen tea with vodka!
    For some reason, we have the best time ever. Then if we are feeling really fat after that…we drive to The House of Pies on Kirby to sit at the counter and eat a slice of applie pie with ice cream on the side!

    For some reason we sit and laugh for hours on those dates

  14. 10.24.2011 / 3:13 pm

    Sorry…I meant “spiked” frozen tea…We love to try new dives to hang out!

  15. 10.24.2011 / 3:42 pm

    My boyfriend and I also love dinning out and we are also foodies. Going out for dinner it is getting a little expensive for us right now, so what we have been doing lately is watching Boardwalk Empire eating a gigantic cuban sandwich and drinking a sweet glass of lemonade. I can’t wait for this week episode and to see what’s on the menu for us.

  16. 10.24.2011 / 3:43 pm

    I really like the blazer and blouse in this outfit! Sometimes eating out does get expensive and it makes it more difficult to sustain a healthy diet regime (it’s not the low fat, or SFL items on the meal that call to me)! But we do enjoy going to eat out Uptown at our city’s locally owned restaurants (love the atmosphere and food so much more than chain restaurants). We also love our weekend morning trips to Starbucks together. The more exciting things that we actually do together also includes invites to friends to join us- like going out for a drink!

  17. 10.24.2011 / 5:42 pm

    OMG those shoes … LOVE!! As a happily single gal, I like spend time with myself either via shopping, blogging, or taking any cool photos I can think of with my new SLR =) good luck with interviews, love! We are almost done!!!

  18. 10.24.2011 / 5:56 pm

    The pleats on your top are absolutely darling. They look great against the tan blazer.
    Going out to eat is definitely a favourite of mine. Or, there’s always ordering in! As long as food and a decent bottle of wine (or a few cocktails) are involved I’m all over it!

    I love this whole outfit…. I especially love the shoes! 🙂
    I have a Lumix too (FZ-18) from 2008… And it still takes awesome photos! 🙂

  20. 10.24.2011 / 6:57 pm

    I love this blazer. I have so many, but I will definitely be adding this one to my collection.

  21. 10.24.2011 / 10:40 pm

    I’m loving the outfit! The blazer is awesome! I definitely need to invest in some more suits and blazer and I think I’ll be hitting up H & M to do so! I’m a single girl, so no couples stories. However, even though I do love cuddling up on the couch to watch a good movie or tv w/ my wine ( I like sauvignon blanc), I am not afraid to take myself out to dinner sometimes. 😉

    My boyfriend has been obsessed with airplanes since he was a little kid and is currently working on his commercial pilots license. One of our favourite things to do together is to grab some great food or treats, park the car at the end of the runway and just watch. It’s been nearly 5 years and I will never get tired of that type of date- we always have so much fun.Fantastic bag in your photos!!

  23. 10.25.2011 / 4:42 am

    Hi! I love your photos, do you edit them in photoshop to get the vintage effect? I’d love to know how if so!

  24. 10.25.2011 / 3:44 pm

    Fridays is always Latin night. Lately we have been enjoying Taco Bus here in the Tampa area. It also includes enjoying the sunset, and the beach with a pitcher of sangria and a couple of good cigars.

  25. 10.25.2011 / 8:29 pm

    What a lovely outfit! Good luck with your interviews! 🙂

  26. 10.25.2011 / 10:52 pm

    Dining out is my facorite thing, but since we moved to new york its seems thats all we do, so i actually started missing home cooked meals! Love the bag and wedges…good luck with the interviews;)

  27. 10.26.2011 / 2:35 am

    Best of luck with your interviews. I know that is a nerve wracking process from family members that have gone through it. You’ll do well though I know. As always I LOVE that bag…I may have to stalk it on ebay.

    Just curious – what is the size of the center diamond in your ring?

  29. 10.26.2011 / 8:10 pm

    Kristina, you look gorgeous in these pics. I love the bag and the leather camera case! My boy and I are big fans of eating out and having wine. We were just on vacation in Spain and thats all we did, I must have gained a million pounds, but, it was so worth it!

  30. 10.27.2011 / 4:52 am

    Love the pleated top.

  31. 10.27.2011 / 3:15 pm

    For me and my Hubby, spending a little quiet time when the Little Girl goes to sleep is enough for us. But for special occasions we like to take a short romantic weekend full of shopping and good food and just us.

  32. 10.28.2011 / 2:03 am

    Good luck on your interviews. You look great! I absolutely love that blouse underneath that awesome blazer. Me and my guy have tv night and enjoy good dinner and some of our favorite restaurants.

  33. 10.29.2011 / 2:53 am

    Shame you can’t wear that whole outfit on your rounds after you become a resident. It would take the patient’s mind off their situation!

  34. 10.31.2011 / 1:47 pm

    I have the same H&M Blazer – in gold and black – they are my favorites!!! Love what how you wore them!

  35. 11.01.2011 / 4:42 pm

    I MUST HAVE THAT BAG. Awesome.

  36. 11.08.2011 / 6:06 am

    Amazing blazer and top!!! The jewelry is adorable and that bag is darling!
