A place for inexpensive date ideas :)

Monthly Archives: January 2011

Sometimes you find good date ideas when reverting back to your childhood. When Tyler was young he had a Dr. Seuss book entitled, “My book about me.” Tyler showed me the book that he still had from when he was a little tyke. Tyler also found the book at Barnes and Noble. We filled out the new book as part of our date. We went to the local elementary school and played on the playground equipment. I realized that I don’t quite fit into a swing like I used to 🙂 Tyler still can’t quite make it across the monkey bars, maybe one day. To finish up the date we designed amazing art work with sidewalk chalk. Here is our master piece 🙂

After Tyler and I had been dating for a while we decided we needed to start going on more inexpensive dates. Tyler was in school and I would be starting graduate school in the fall so money would be tight for both of us. We went on what I called a Swedish date.  I took Tyler to the Salt Lake library, because I have always wanted to go there.  We looked for Swedish books and read in the encyclopedia and found an English Swedish dictionary.  Then we went to IKEA, because Tyler had never been there.  We had Swedish Meatballs while there for dinner. Yum!! It was really fun.  Tyler tells me now that he liked our inexpensive date.

Our first theme date was one of our first dates. We had an “under the sea” date. Tyler took me to Joe’s Crab Shack for dinner. After that we went to the aquarium. The end to our evening was watching “Finding Nemo” while snacking on goldfish and swedish fish. It was a lot of fun.

The official blog of Heather and Tyler’s themed dates.

This is our first post. We are very excited to start this blog together. We have been married for a little over a year. We were encouraged by Tyler’s mom to start a blog of the fun dates that we have gone on since we first started dating. We thought it was a good idea to make our ideas available to others who are looking for a fun, inexpensive way to go on dates.

Feel free to use any of these ideas. Just deposit two quarters in your computer. 🙂
