Let’s Look-Date Nights

It’s the second Wednesday of the month! Do you know what that means? Shay and I have a monthly link-up where we take a peek at the little things in our lives. We invite you to join us each month. Just scroll down to the bottom of the post to find the prompt for each month and be sure to add your blog post to the link-up!

Last month we took a look at some of our FAVORITES from high school and college.

In February, we took peeks at what we eat in a week.

To kickoff the New Year, we discussed how we’d be organizing our new 2022.

Today, we’re chit-chatting about how we “do” date nights. Unlike most of my other blog posts, I decided not to tackle this one alone and instead got a little help from Tab.

He was all in for helping and when I asked him, “Tab, how do we ‘do’ date nights?”. His answer was this.

Please listen close because I’d like you to catch every bit of what he said…


That. Was. It.

Yep, ladies. Dinner. And that right there could be the end of the blog post. 😉

Often times, Tab and I find ourselves meeting up with other couples for date night, but we guessed 3-4 times a year do we go out for date night just the two of us. Now that our kids are getting older it’s easy to snag some alone time…backyard patio time, watching a show alone, even a weekday lunch, or I tag along on a business trip or two.

One thing we did when our kids were little and we needed childcare in order to have a date night {which makes every night out so much more expensive} is we traded childcare with friends. The Shulls would take our kids for a night and then we’d take theirs so we could each go out and not have to spend money on a sitter. It’s something at the time we never would have spent money on without that trade off so if you’re in that stage of life, think about finding another couple you could switch sitter duties with.

The truth is I don’t have any remarkable date night ideas that Tab and I implement each month but we do make it a priority to spend time together. That’s what’s important! My little married-for-almost-seventeen-years-tip would be that-make spending time with your spouse a priority! It’s the most important earthly relationship we have, ladies. Let’s treat it that way. {Don’t worry, I’m speaking to myself here too!}

I’m off to get a date night planned on the calendar. I hope after reading this you do too. 🙂

Please join us next month when we chat about our hometowns!

    Yes, yes, yes! Spend time together as much as you can…even at home during those crazy, busy stages in life. Also, my favorite date nights always include you two!
