date night!

Well since our wedding, we have had very few date nights. I think only 1 other "true' date night... haha but now that i'm married i understand that there is no "true date night" compared to when we were dating. Ha money wasn't an option, we did crazy things... now a date night might include a movie at home :)

but I wouldnt change that for the world. I love spending every day with my best friend.

God blessed us and my mom gave us a gift card to the movies. So.... WE WENT.

I made dinner at home... we went to starbucks and got a little drink on the way and went to a 9:15 movie. hahaha thats big for us since we are usually laying in bed by 10 or so... but this morning neither of us had to get up so we figured we would go to a late movie.

It was a blast, we dressed up and really enjoyed ourselves but needless to say, we were exhausted by the time the movie got out haha.

Any other creative ideas for cheap date nights out there??

1. Your hair is gorgeous...which makes me hate you since mine is falling out (postpartum thing, I guess!!!)
2. You and Jeremiah are WAY too cute...which makes me vomit...b/c Derrick and I were NEVER that cute... ;)
3. I LOVE reading your blog...makes me love Derrick more and remember the "old" days when we weren't...old. LOL :)

Okay...inexpensive dates...
Derrick & I sometimes watch the spanish channel on mute and try to reenact what is going on...or...going to sing Karaoke is cheap...or playing darts/pool and places that have that sort of thing...which usually also has karaoke... or...have a picnic in your living room...or...go to the white tanks for a "walk"...

Wow. It's been a LONG time since we've done ANYthing- sadness! :)

Kim, I don't know you but you crack me up!

Amber, you and J are too funny with those pictures!

Cheap date night - hmmm. Got nothing for you. After 19 years you'd think I would. I guess my advice is that you don't really need date nights until you have children! You have all the time together alone right now so it's like one big date night until the baby comes...

Hahaha... Kim is cracking me up!

I agree with Penny, you will definitely NEED date nights when you have kiddos! Just wait :o)

As far as cheap dates... We always love movies, at home or out. Maybe dinner at the park or greenbelt near your house. Order a pizza and play a game together. Have some friends over for a double date night.

Okay, those all sound really lame but I've got nothing else for you!

haha i think we should have date nights before kids also... considering I have to go to bed super early to work at 4am and then we will won't have to make a new tradition when we do finally have kids :)

I think we might jsut turn on the spanish channel and do kim's idea... sounds pretty hilarious! thanks for the advice gals!
