Ideas for Date Night at Home {& a Giveaway}

Let's face it, dating your husband can be hard. You've either been at work all day or chasing kids and trying to get housework done. All you really want to do on a Friday night is put your pajamas on and veg in front of the TV. I get it! I've been there too. Baby sitters are expensive. You've had a long hard week. The last thing you want to do is get all dressed up to drive somewhere nice, face crowds of strangers, spend money you shouldn't, and tire yourself out even more. And besides, you've been married how long now? It's not like you still need to impress your spouse and take him or her out special, right?

Wrong! It is so so so important to continue to date your husband after you're married, after you have kids, and even years down the road. You never want that spark to die! But, I hear you. It's hard and sometimes doesn't seem worth it. So what do you do? You have a date night in! I know what you're thinking. "Stay home for date night? How boring. What are we just going to watch a movie. That's what we'd be doing anyway." Well I have some ideas to spice up that date night in!
  1. Cook together
  2. Make the whole night a theme. Maybe pick a series and have a marathon. Harry Potter perhaps. Make Butterbeer and try to get through all 7 movies! Or watch a football game with stadium food, hot dogs, soft pretzels etc. Or have a country theme. Have an Italian night with homemade pizza and The Italian Job.
  3. Play board or card games with the kids. After the kids go to bed, continue playing but add a "strip" element to it.
  4. You don't have to dress up, but don't wear your pajamas. Unless that's part of your theme and they're cute or sexy pajamas.
  5. Or make it fancy. Go all out with candles and everything.
  6. Eat outside on the patio for something different.
  7. Have a dance party. Make a playlist on Spotify and just go crazy. Or, I hear Youtube has some ballroom dancing lessons!
  8. Make a fort in the living room. Or if you're not feeling that crazy, have a picnic in the living room
  9. Make breakfast in bed for dinner and have a Netflix marathon.
  10. Workout together.
