Dates on the Cheap: Sweets

dates on the cheap by bedsidesign large size Happy Friday friends. This week's Dates on the Cheap is the last installment for 2012! I'm trying to be patient and not rush to 2013. Don't worry, Dates on the Cheap will continue in 2013!

I hope you aren't "loved" out this week. I know it's been a lot of mushy feelings as I shared our love story. While we are on the topic, check out a previous post all about our honeymoon! Today I'm going to share one of our favorite cheap date ideas to unwind and relax - which let's face it that's what we need during this time of year.

Ian has a sweet-tooth. The dude loves desserts. Dates at cafes, bookstores, and restaurants are all great. We've experimented with a lot of local & chain restaurants in Syracuse. We finally found the perfect spot to go for conversation - no wifi [let's face it, if you're on a date maybe you should take a break from checking your blog comments] that offers quality desserts. For you 'Cuse fans I'm talking about Biscotti Cafe & Gelateria!  Yeah that's right: bakery + a local place to get gelato? We were sold.

Bond over some tasty treats and keep the focus on the flavors, conversation and atmosphere. You can take your iPhones out to instagram your food but put them away. Savor the time that you spend together and be present in the moment.
