David and I have always had lots of fun together – we enjoy trying new things, being silly together, being romantic, etc. but after almost 9 years of marriage, and more importantly, almost 6 years of having kids, well, it just takes a lot more effort.
Knowing this phase would come, we did put a tradition in place to help us make sure we didn’t let our dates fall to the wayside. This month *cue cheesy romantic music* marked our 113th special date
To be quite honest, though, our favorite thing to do for the past few months involves some buffalo chicken at home after the kids are in bed…
And really, we love that we’re comfortable and happy with that because of this stage of our lives. How.ev.er. David’s birthday is coming right up next week and he’s starting to feel a little old. I happen to know that he would really enjoy a REAL date and somewhat more sophisticated activities, LOL, so I was stoked when Datevitation contacted us to try out one of their custom coupon books!
As I looked through all of the romantic date ideas I started getting excited thinking about actually going out more Sure, technically I could just make my own date book or coupons from scratch, but there’s something so much more fun about having the cute little pictures and putting it all together SO effortlessly.
I went through each section, and I have to admit I blushed a bit in the adult one Looking at all of the date prompts, I can’t help but think that the possibilities are endless and your creativity is your only limit. Sure, there is a descriptive title under each picture, but don’t let that box you in! I mean, it might start out as “Sleeping In” but with a little customization, pretty soon it says:
And I know the creators had something else in mind with this “Answers” date, but why not make it a little more fun???
OK, hopefully you get my point – you can do whatever you want! And no, I didn’t actually pick either of these options for the book I made for David… I’m not going to give him coupons for stuff we already do, LOL!
