I love to go on dates with Rob. I feel like we don't get enough of them, they aren't consistent, and I am feeling like I need one now! Since I have really been in the mood to go on a date I have been thinking the last couple of days what my favorite dates are. Here a few I thought of.
Movie night in. This could be done when the kids are in bed or if they are staying over somewhere. Pick your spouse's favorite movie, snacks and drink and you have a date.
Broadway show. Rob and I have always gone to shows ever since we started dating. We have seen Phantom at least 2 times, maybe 3. We have seen Wizard of Oz (with the kids), Shrek, Young Frankenstein, The Little Mermaid, Titanic, Peter Pan, Rent, and Beauty and the Beast. (We are taking the kids to see that in a couple weeks. They have no idea and I am super excited!
Picnic. I could not tell you the last time Rob and I went on a picnic just the two of us. I know we have done it and I remember loving it.
Dinner and a movie. Who doesn't love this. I love to eat and I love movies. Perfect combo!
Amusement Park. One year we had my mom and step dad watch the kids all day and we went to the amusement park. It was seriously one of the most fun times I have had with him.
Coffee. This is a very inexpensive way to get out, relax, and talk.
Dinner at home. We don't ever do this but I think it is a great idea. Take your kids somewhere else and have dinner ready for your spouse when they get home. This would be a great week night surprise.
Walking. This may seem boring and not like a date, but when do you get to enjoy nature, hold hands and be silent? On a walk.
Museum. Rob and I love to go to museums. Before we had kids we would go walk around museums often.
Game Night. Another great idea for after the kids go to bed or a week night. Turn off phones, computers, tv and play a game together. I love to play games...Rob does not. So I know if he does he is making a sacrifice for me...his love!
Now, get off your computer and go plan a date! You need it!
(We all do!)
