March Date Night

In my relationship, date nights are sacred. Between us, we have five children, two busy jobs, two homes, one very naughty dog and a bird who bites. We’re busy. So when it comes to date night, we shut out all except one another. It reminds us we still enjoy each other after all these years.

Shouldn’t ‘date night’ be a routine for us all??? Yes, we think so.

Here’s some tried-and-true ideas for your date nights this March:

It’s a Blanket, Popcorn and Netflix Night!

MUST-HAVE’S

Your Fave Blanket

Serving Tray

Have your snacks and drinks arranged before the date night starts… then why not serve your man like a king? Place two bowls of popcorn on the tray (one for each type of popcorn—you can share—you like each other, right?), grab a few napkins, add a few of his favorite beers and voila!— you’re ready!

Not Your Ordinary Popcorn
