Tonight is date night!
First off, let me say that I love friends. Friends that I can share life with, trade ideas with, laugh or cry with..... Wait, I thought we are talking about date night? Yes, true, but I can't take all the credit for this idea because well my sweet friend, Laura shared it with me and the hubs and I have been intentional about our date night since.
Ok, dating your hubby can be tough, especially when you are in a season of young kiddos....and if you are like me you love a list...so here you go ladies....the details on our once a week date night.
1. Midweek - because weekends are for the family and friends and cookouts and such.
2. Once a month at a restaurant - because babysitting is tricky and money doesn't grow on our trees.
3. The other weeks at the dining room table - because it just feels more like a date and we really get a chance to talk and be together instead of the familiar, kitchen table.
4. The kids are in bed - no phones, no kids, no tv, no distractions, just us at the table (and yes, we eat at opposite sides of the big, long table, because I married Mr. Old School).
5.*KEY* The date night is scheduled each week - We have to put it on both our calendars to make it a real priority of actually happening.
