How we do 'date night' around here

It's no secret that we don't get out much alone here. Our nearest family is 700 miles away. That and I pretty much don't trust anyone with my babies = not many, like ever, date nights out. The last time we went out just the two of us was... Valentines I believe. Yep. That's 8 months if you don't feel like doing the math. We are extremely lucky that our kiddos go to sleep by 7:30 and we have this horrible habit of not going to bed till midnightish, so we get plenty of alone time! Even though we get plenty of alone time, it's easy to just spent the evening watching tv, folding laundry or both of us just doing our own thing, so it's important to schedule some 'home date nights' where we mute the cell phones and concentrate on us! This weekend we did just that. Drew started a fire and dusted off our rook set (a card game) and I headed to the store for our favorite treat. We spent the evening in front of the fire, talking, playing a game and eating a ridiculous amount of 'the ultimate snack.' The ultimate snack is something two college friends and myself made up one night freshman year. Here's what you do- warm up some nacho cheese dip, take a toast ions chip, dip it in cold cream cheese then hot cheese dip and enjoy. Seriously so freaking good. And horrible for you. But who cares. Now grab your significant other, make a fire and have a fabulous evening!


  1. Sounds fun! Trevor and I go on game-playing streaks! Not so much since I've been pregnant (TOO TIRED FOR ANYTHING), but we love playing Rummy, Scrabble, and Yahtzee!

    1. We totally go on streaks too! And you are totally excused from doing Amything while pregnant!
