I mentioned date nights yesterday as our way of checking in and avoiding “marital drift.” Check out some of our favorite date night ideas and share your favorites, too!
Dinner: We love a good meal. In fact, we love enjoying any meal together. When it’s just the two of us, we can chat and take our time without being in a rush. Bonus points for being able to dress up!
Live entertainment: Concerts, theater, comedy–a live performance is always a good time! We have even been to see shows we knew nothing about, just because they are live. They pretty much never disappoint.
Dessert date: Sometimes we skip dinner and go straight for the good stuff! Other times, we do a dessert date at home after we’ve put our son to bed. Either way, you can’t go wrong with dessert!
Post-bedtime at-home date: Dessert isn’t the only way this works. Sitter not available? Do “dinner time” as a family then cook a fancy meal together to share. Out of town with your kid in a single hotel room? Sometimes you just make date night work. (Here we are in the “other room” during a hotel stay. Yep, you do what you gotta do.)
Sporting events: It’s no secret we love Aggie football, but that’s not all. We enjoy horse races, basketball games (in small doses), baseball (college or minor league) games, etc as well.
Other options I love but Mr. Gray isn’t crazy about: Think old school birthday party activities–bowling, roller skating, ice skating, putt putt, and the like.
Do you make date night a priority? What’s your favorite thing to do?
