It was very easy to make. I picked up a large mason jar, scrapbook paper and large popsicle sticks at my local craft store. I painted the popsicle stick with acrylic paint I already had. Each color represents a different date as seen below in my code.
All I had to do is come up with was the dates Mr.H and I would go on. I found some good ideas on Life in the Green House, but I also came up with a few of my own.
I will say that all dates were pre-approved by Mr.H. I wanted to make sure he participated on all of them so ran all them by him. I also left a few sticks blank in case we want to add a few more dates in the future.
Home dates require little planning and usually cost no money or very little.
-Homemade pizza and a movie
-Play tennis together
-Chick flick and popcorn
-Cook a new meal together
-Fondu over candle light
-Order take out and play dominos
-Make a dessert together (then eat it!)
These are dates that require a little planning, but not very expensive. Something you can do really any weekend.
-Try a new restaurant
-Dinner and a movie (Mr.H's choice)
-Dinner and a movie (my choice)
-Dessert only date
-Walk down Main St. and have lunch
-Afternoon at the zoo
-Go get yogurt
-Dallas farmers market and lunch
-Picnic at the Arboretum
These are dates that require planning in advance and are a little pricy. Notice how few we have :)
-Dinner at a fancy restaurant
-Hotel stay for the night
-Bed and breakfast
Where we live, we have so many fun activities around and don't ever take advantage of them. Honestly, I think we are sometimes too lazy or simply forget about them. This is a great way for us to spend some time together and do something fun and different.
For the home and $ (less expensive) dates, I think it will be fun for us to draw one randomly. It will make it exciting!
I'm very pumped because this weekend Mr.H and I will pull a PURPLE ($) date. We've been busy the last few weekends so we haven't had a date out in a while. The weather is suppose to be beautiful so (fingers crossed) I hope we get an outdoor activity!
Have a wonderful weekend FRIENDS!
