Now that we’ve got two kiddos, my husband and I tend to do date nights at home far more often than we go out. It can be a hassle getting everything coordinated for a night out, and we don’t want that to stop us from connecting throughout the week, so we try to be diligent about doing some sort of an impromptu date night at home every week and then occasionally going out somewhere when we have a babysitter. Sometimes we get really creative with our home date nights, and other times we just enjoy some of our favorite things together.
Most recently we enjoyed some Breyers Gelato Indulgences duirng our date night in! Using coupons I was able to buy all four of the gelato flavors for us to sample. It was hard to choose a favorite because they were all so creamy and delicious! I’m torn between the vanilla carmel and the triple chocolate (of course), while hubby can’t decide between the raspberry cheescake or the tiramisu flavors! Looks like we may be buying more than one tub of gelato every time now!
In addition to our tasty treat we spent our evening watching the premiere of one of our old favorite shows – 24! I’ve loved the show since I was a teen, and I introduced my husband to it when I was pregnant with Little Man (and didn’t have the energy to do anything but watch TV). We watched all the seasons together, so we were thrilled when we found out they were coming back for another season.
Since it was a LONG premiere we paused halfway through to play one of our favorite board games, Race for the Galaxy. I won, which was extra exciting since normally my husband beats me at that game! We just got some new cards for it, which seem to have leveled the playing field a bit.
We had so much fun just spending the evening together doing a few of our favorite things, and enjoying a new favorite dessert! Just goes to show that date night doesn’t have to be fancy or expensive for it to be fun!
