When I was 18 years-old the movie Serendipty came to theaters. I have never been a huge movie person, but I went to see this one in theaters on my poor freshman budget- a serious splurge at the time. There was instant love, perhaps John Cusack, perhaps the girl crush on Kate Beckinsale lingering after Much Ado About Nothing, or maybe just a light-hearted well-written plot won me over.
A few scenes in the movie take place in front of/inside of the cafe Serendipity 3 surrounding their famous frozen hot chocolate. My youthful foodie soul was spoken to, and I made it a bucket-list item of mine to go on a date to Serendipty 3 some day in my life.
I always thought it would be on a trip to NY, but the moment I learned there was one outside Caesar's Palace in Las Vegas, I added this to our getaway plans!
My 18-year old self would be so happy to know that this would not only happen in my lifetime, but happen with one awesome husband to share the date with.
