Happy Hump Day Everyone!
We are almost through the work week, so don’t worry you can do it!
If you are anything like me than Wednesday is usually the day you start to ask “what am I going to do this weekend?” & if you are anything like me you start to realize with the holidays coming up, bills, vacations, etc. you really shouldn’t DO anything this weekend.
Now, this can be a bummer. I enjoy going out even if its for a couple drinks. However, I realize that this can add up as far as how much spending is really taking place (especially if you go out every weekend) so I started thinking of ways to not blow the budget, yet still have a good time at home and I came up with these three ideas for a date night in.
So lets begin….
1. A Movie Night
Everyone right now is watching scary movies since Halloween is right around the corner, so why not have a “Horror Movie Night.” Grab the popcorn, snow caps & a cuddle buddy ( mine is the dog) and BAM!
If scary movies aren’t your thing, you could always watch a comedy or action movie. Whatever you prefer jazz it up! For example, turn your living room into a tent, make pajamas mandatory and just have fun!
2. Fancy Dinner For Two
Who says you have to go out to eat good food or dress up for that matter? Ladies, get yourself in shower, put on your favorite black dress and heels. Gentlemen, style your hair, put on some cologne and meet each other in the dinning room ( or wherever you eat in the house).
Now, if you can’t decided on who will be the cook, order out from your favorite restaurant. Enjoy each other’s company and take the time to catch up.
3. Retro Game Night
Ah, yes! This may be my favorite idea out of them all. I’m pretty sure all of us who grew up in the 90’s played a lot of video games! ( Mario Kart was my jam!) Some of us still do, judgment free blog here & what better way to get a little competitive with your partner than to challenge them virtually.
Here’s an example; my partner and I ordered pizza, downloaded Mortal Kombat on the Xbox & stayed up until one in the morning battling each other. ( He was secretly mad because I kept winning)
These are just some of my favorite at home date night ideas, but there are a lot more out there to choose from! What I love is that any of these ideas can be tweaked to fit different personalities or style.
Have fun, get creative and enjoy!
– Let me know what you and your partner do, I’d love to share and get new ideas!
