I have photos set up as a tile on my phone and I love days like today when it shows me memories like this…
My parents came to visit before my due date and helped with final baby preparations. They also cleaned our entire house and cooked meals for us to keep in the freezer 😭🥰 honestly my biggest helpers. When they visited we went to Bar Cicchetti for the first time.
Since I was pregnant and not consuming alcohol I ordered the lavender lemonade and it felt like a nice treat!
We started with the crispy cauliflower and patatas bravas. Normally the potatoes would’ve been my favorite but the cauliflower was a hit. The aioli with the hot sauce on the cauliflower was just *chefs kiss*.
We sat upstairs at Cicchetti and luckily it was a slower evening for them so the noise level wasn’t too high either. I enjoyed the lighting and snapped a good photo of Pappa 🙂 I can’t remember what Ben got to eat (below) but it looks delish.
I ordered the Mediterranean salad and although it was flavorful I’m not a HUGE green bean fan so it wasn’t my favorite salad.
Look at that belly! This was back in June, around Father’s Day.
I got spoiled rotten this past weekend by my parents who came to visit. They cleaned our entire home AND my mom cooked a bunch of meals for our freezer meaning we can eat easily once baby girl arrives. Dad also helped Ben put the bases in both cars for the car seat. I feel like we are ready for her to come into the world any day now. Luckily we reserved Sunday for my Pappa!
We ate brunch at Cafe Cuvée in the Ambassador hotel in Midtown. Luckily they could squeeze us in because my dad had accidentally made the reservation for Monday morning.
Good service. Good atmosphere. I would definitely go back to eat here! Ito and I actually stayed at the Ambassador hotel for my birthday last year but we ordered champagne room service from Cafe Cuvée then instead 😝
Unfortunately my Mamma wasn’t feeling good, like at all, but I love this photo Ben snapped of my Pappa and I outside the Ambassador hotel. 🥰💕
Next year’s Father’s Day we will be celebrating Ben being a father & amy dad being a grandfather!
I haven’t had too many opportunities to explore OKC yet but I will say my favorite patio bar so far has got to be Social Capital across from Scissortail Park. If you enjoy craft beer or great views then this place is a must visit!
My mom and I discovered Rose Wine Water on one of her first visits to OKC, and now it’s a must have. It’s a rose wine mixed with water and it’s refreshing as heck! Ben and I abstained from drinking, le duh for me, but we sure did drink up the atmosphere.
Now that the weather is getting warmer it feels even better to be able to enjoy being outside, even it’s still windy in OKC all the time. Plus those views of Devon Tower are GORGEOUS as the sun begins to set.
Social Capital has two levels, the inside downstairs is a bit too loud for my liking but if you want food- that’s where it’s at. Their nachos always go down a treat. There’s plenty of seating downstairs outside; I feel like that’s where most families tend to stay.
Then there’s the rooftop patio bar, me likey! It has a gorgeous view of Scissortail Park, which is literally one of my favorite parts of OKC. Bonus- there’s a dog park at Scissortail Park as well if you need to tire out your pup before visiting Social Capital.
