Winter Date Idea: Sunset hot chocolate for two

Winter Date Idea: Sunset hot chocolate for two - Sugar & Cloth - Holiday - Houston Blogger

Lately Seth and I have been trying to come up with inexpensive date night ideas that stray from our go-to diners or taco nights (hey, we live in Texas..). With Christmas just around the corner, we’ve been aiming for anything cute and almost free, which is how we ended up with a new winter date idea: Sunset hot chocolate for two

Winter Date Idea: Sunset hot chocolate for two - Sugar & Cloth - Holiday - Houston BloggerWe bundled up (which gave me good leverage when begging Seth to let me open up my H&M mittens that he got me for Christmas), and laid down a few blankets in the field near our house. I also brought battery operated string lights for a little bit of sparkle when it got dark.

    Very smart to learn early that every marriage needs one one one personal time and attention…
    No wonder Seth couldnt resist, your too adorable and the mittens, i knew they would have pom poms :)

      Technically I didn’t know it was hot chocolate day, but if it makes me look on top of the game, then yes! ;)

    Hot cocoa and cookies, my favorite! I love to do this while walking around our peaceful downtown area.

    • Ashley said:

      The downtown area of Houston probably isn’t as cute as yours, we’ll have to stick to fields until then ;)
