But I am sure if I lived somewhere where it rained all the time, I would feel differently. I might feel about rain what I currently feel about snow: hate. I know most people aren't as crazy about rain as I am no matter where they live. So today I want to share some date ideas to make the rain a little less depressing
- ONE || Go camping in your living room.
This is something Pearson and I actually do quite often. Maybe a couple times a year. Most recently, we did it this weekend with a little help from Date Box (aff)!
We slept on the mattress in the living room Saturday night after the movie was over. And we slept there Sunday night and Monday night too! The last time we did that was at Christmas time so it was about time again. Technically it wasn't raining outside when we had our indoor campout, but that would be a perfect time!

- TWO || Have an indoor picnic.
Sometimes you just really want to have a picnic, right? But it's raining. Or it's too cold. Or it's snowing. We've only ever done this a couple times (unless you count our indoor camp outs as picnics too), but it's just fun to switch things up and eat on the floor sometimes, you know?
|Sorry for the blurry pictures. They're old. From before I knew how to take good pics.|
- THREE || Go for a run in the rain.
Tell me I'm not the only one who loves running/dancing/playing in the rain. Forget your cares and get out there with your spouse. Goof off and make memories!
- FOUR || Have a coffee date.
Or an ice cream date if coffee isn't your thing. If you're tired of being stuck inside in the rain, then make an excuse to get out!
- FIVE || Read a book together
This is something we normally do in the car on a road trip. The passenger will read aloud to the driver. We've also read books about marriage together like this. Especially before we were married as part of our "pre-marital counseling." But why not extend that to any type of book. On a rainy afternoon, instead of vegging in front of the TV, pull out a fun fiction novel and get engrossed in the story together.
- SIX || Have a game night
Play board games, card games, or video games. Make it interesting. Loser does dishes for a week or gives the other one a back massage. You can have fun even though it's raining!
- SEVEN || Reminisce
One of my favorite things to do with Pearson is reminisce about old times. We'll go through our Facebook profiles and talk about all our fun memories from college. You could also watch your wedding video or at least listen to your wedding CD and look through your pictures. We haven't done this in along time. And what better backdrop than a downpour outside your window?
