It’s time. It’s been nine days. NINE. We’ve exhausted our sweets pile. We’ve gotten all the pay-per-view movies we can stand. We’ve sat and stared and not we’re just plain bored. Am I alone? It’s time to take back my marriage and re-invent date night!! We don’t have a full arsenal (this is where you all come in…. comment with your ideas!) but we do have a few unique ideas to kick-start your connection time. Let us know what you’ve tried and what you’d like us to try! We’re open to suggestions.
>> Karaoke Night! Have you searched YouTube for background tracks to your favorite love songs (complete with lyrics)? Well, now’s the time! For our first date night, we’ll be singing old Journey ballads … most likely while giggling rather than gazing into each other’s eyes, no doubt.
>> Cheese tasting, anyone? Yes, I said cheese tasting. Wine tasting might be your go-to evening event (liquor stores are, of course, essential businesses during this outbreak) but let’s not forget about the cheesy adventures you can have together! (No pun intended, er…uh). I love cranberry Stilton, Yancy’s Fancy steakhouse onion, and any type of smoked cheese. Don’t forget to grab some unfamiliar cheeses, too just to mix things up! Add cured meats, assorted olives, and artisan crackers if you’re feeling extra fancy. Get creative with what Amazon has to offer! If you have a random string cheese floating around the fridge and a jar of olives that you opened for … Thanksgiving?… go for it! Don’t complicate it.
>> Since creating a cheese-tasting adventure can be a little on the pricey side, I have decided to add something that’s free!… Would You Rather!? Do a quick Google search for Would You Rather questions and see how much you two really have in common. These questions always make us laugh in the end. Don’t stop there! Create your own questions and be creative! Remember, this is a fun activity!
>> Open-Ended Questions… Try this list of open-ended questions and talk the night away. Do this with your beverage of choice (tea, anyone?) and some low lighting or candles to make the night extra special.
>> Project time! With the changing seasons, it’s great to get things organized and clean for spring/summer! Why not go through your closets and dressers together? Maybe this would be a great time to hold a crazy fashion show? Silly selfies photo shoot? You decide!! Just remember to donate things you probably won’t wear from here on out.
