Date Night!

My husband and I haven't had a real date in forever. (I think 1 year ago my birthday when my mom came for a visit.) We don't really use babysitters and have no family nearby, so our date nights are few and far between. But I decided it was time to put an end to that. So once a month, we are going to have a date night at home.

Sunday night we put the older kids to bed with the baby. I made one of my favorite snack recipes- Awesome Crab and Artichoke Dip served with crackers/chips. We pulled out Scrabble, banned any conversation that was too deep, about problems or parenting issues. It was a very fun and relaxing time. We didn't get dressed up, just hung out together. We joked with each other and had a really great time. My husband suggested we put the kids to bed early again tonight. This is a great solution to our date night dilemma.

  1. We've done that in the past and it's a great and economical way to date.

    We use to aim for Sunday nights. We'd sometimes splurge and get takeout or sometimes make a special appetizer (your dip looks great!) or sometimes just make hot tea or something different.

    I think you're on to sometime great!
